William Levy - William Levy: 'No More Telenovelas'

Model/actor William Levy is turning his back on the small screen in a bid to build on his movie career and spend more time with his family.

The Cuban hunk has made a name for himself as a regular in telenovelas like Pasion and Triunfo del Amor, but he admits his stint on Spanish-language soap La Tempestad (The Tempest) will likely be his last Tv acting gig.

He says, "It is too much work and as time goes by I'm trying to find new priorities. I want to be with my children and spend more time with them. We will see what happens because it is too much time and tiring."

The 33 year old, who rose to fame in the U.S. after starring as Jennifer Lopez's toned love interest in her I'm Into You video, has two young children with his ex-girlfriend, actress Elizabeth Gutierrez.

Levy has already completed work on two upcoming films - Addicted and Tyler Perry's Single Moms Club, which are both due for release next year (14).
