The most difficult thing in the world is to start a career known only for your looks, and then to try to become a serious actress. No one will take you seriously once you are known as the pretty woman.
I have a strong personality, and I say what I think.
I don’t know if I believe in marriage. I believe in family, love and children.
One thing that I am proud of: I am really capable of laughing at myself.
My ambition is to be happy.
I’ve worked myself to exhaustion before. I was so young and I thought I could do everything; it was just too much for my body and mind.
I love Spanish food. My diet is the Mediterranean diet, which is good food. I eat well.
As a kid, I had a lot of energy; but the ballet lessons made me calm – this pleased my mother.
I really like the Caribbean. Anyplace in the Caribbean. I get there, and I feel like a monkey – the perfect state.
I have had a very singular kind of life since I started working so young, so I am very used to traveling, working, taking time for myself.
