Personal Quotes (56)

I would love to do a romantic comedy - a good one.
I would love to work with Morgan Freeman. I love him.
I love Calle 13 - they are Puerto Rican; some songs sound like Reggaeton, but it's not Reggaeton; it's good urban music.

Martinis are glamorous but also so simple because they only have a few ingredients, and you can really taste the vodka.

I want to do a lot of different characters - definitely not always the same kind of character. I love that life provides so many choices, and I want to be able to experience that.
Films are a very personal experience - just like a martini - so I try to think about what I like, what projects I like to be in, and make sure I feel proud about it because, at the end, I'm the only one that's going to look back and feel proud or not about what I was doing.
I want to continue working in Mexico, but I'd also like to work in other countries eventually, too. Working behind the camera is interesting for me, too.

As an artist, you have to do what you feel passionate about. It has to be something you can connect with.

I liked the whole process of creating on set. It's almost like creating magic. The work that the camera guys are doing at the same time, the lighting... all of the people working in their departments to make one thing.
The thing with fashion is that when I see something that I like, I just go with it. I don't really go towards one designer or the other. It's just what I like. It could be expensive, it could be cheap. If it fits me, and it's my style, I'll wear it.
I would say that the energy on set is always the energy of the director because he's the boss.
I wear tennis shoes over and over again, and my black jacket. I always try to be comfortable. It's very important to me to wear comfortable shoes, which are hard to find - beautiful and comfortable at the same time.
I'm obsessed with being on time. If you say, 'Let's meet up at 10 A.M.,' I will be there 15 minutes early. Always.
