Mexican actor Gael Garcia Bernal has hit back at American journalist LYNN HIRSCHBERG after she claimed he fell out with director Pedro Almodovar while making Bad Education.

The NEW YORK TIMES reporter also alleged Bernal "had difficulty filming some of the explicit homosexual love scenes" in the film.

But the furious Y TU MAMA TAMBIEN star has refuted the claims, dubbing Hirschberg "ignorant".

He blasts "The New York Times f***ed up.

"It's catty, aggressive and ignorant journalism on her part. It's horrible. I had absolutely no reservations (about the role)."
