I've learned to take jobs as an actress that is meaningful to me because I've never taken a job for the money.
I'd wanted to be an actress my whole life, that was my goal, that was all I cared about.
I was never obese, but I felt 'less than' because I wasn't as thin as other actresses. I totally fell for that low-fat craze. My goal was to be X jeans size or a specific number on the scale.

We are a very typical Spanish family - a bullfighter, an actress, a flamenco dancer and singer!
My dad was a very funny man - he's the one who taught me life would be awfully hard without humor! I'm sure his Irish wit in some way influenced my decision to become an actress.
Of course there are some models who are not good, but it has been proven that some models can act. Look at Kim Basinger, Sharon Stone or Andie MacDowell, who were all models - they are really fantastic actresses.

We were the laughingstock of that first season... It was with great relish several years later that I received a TV Guide award for favorite actress on television.
As an actress, I never went to film school, and I think if I had gone to film school, I would have started with a great advantage. If you have a strong intent to do anything in life, you can do it, but it always helps to have formal training.
