SPANISH-BORN megastar Julio Iglesias has racked up nearly 1,000 gold records and is singing to sold-out concert halls on an international tour, yet this humble heart-throb knows his limitations.

''I'm still learning to sing right now. I just want to reach more colours in my voice,'' Iglesias said.

Given such modesty, it is not surprising that Iglesias turned down an offer most could not refuse - a chance to star in Oliver Stone's upcoming film version of Evita against Michelle Pfeiffer in the leading role.

''Oliver came to me after a concert . . . and proposed the role of Juan Peron,'' Iglesias said. ''I love Oliver Stone very much but it's difficult for me to do something I'm not professional in.''
