Que Chula. Growing up where I did in California meant that I got to hear this hollered at me when I was having a good day, that being Spanish for "How Cute." These women most definitely are a league above being called cuties but they're all proud Mexican ladies who should get a Battle all to themselves on this glorious Cinco de Mayo.
Ana de la Reguera
Ana gained some American notice when she appeared opposite Jack Black in the wrestling comedy NACHO LIBRE. She might have gotten some additional mainstream notice when she played Gabriela in COP OUT had Kevin Smith not decided to torpedo the movie with his Fat Man on a Plane antics. Oh, and by perhaps trying to make a better movie. But I have faith that Favs will do her right when she appears this summer in COWBOYS & ALIENS.
She was born and raised in Texas, that state which should have been Mexico's ages ago, (Hey, do you really come here for accurate history lessons?) but Longoria still credits herself with being a Mexican senorita which is good enough for me. With her infamous role on "Desperate Housewives" drawing to a probable end, Longoria is focusing more on movies again, including a feature called WITHOUT MEN. Sadly, it's not similar to those where the boys aren't flicks that we're all more familiar with.
Yeah, duh. Of course Salma is in this Battle. Can you think of any other Mexican woman to perfectly round out the Battle? With a voice-over in PUSS IN BOOTS, get prepared to answer the kids' questions about why daddy is turned on by a cartoon.
Que chula es tu favorita?
