19 Celebs We Can Trust Because They Love Their Dogs

There are a few ways to know whether or not you can trust a person. However, the best way to figure out whether or not a person is trustworthy is figuring out whether or not they like animals, namely dogs, and how they treat them. My mother always said to me that you should always judge someone based on how they treat the defenseless, like animals. You know that’s the only thing that matters because if they can keep a dog alive and happy, they can have my secrets.

1. Bella Thorne & Tampon

Yup. She named her dog Tampon and stands by it, because when did tampon become a dirty word? I’d argue that tampons have been far more useful than “Barbie’s” and “Oreo’s”.

2. Daniella Monet

Here Are Some Of Our Favorite Latino Celebrities In 40 Years Thanks To FaceApp

FaceApp

By now you’re probably fully aware of FaceApp and their whole “we own your photos and do whatever we want with them forever” terms of use, but that certainly doesn’t make the novelty of the aging-app any less fun. Plus, for those of us who’ve already used it, the damage is done — so, uh, YOLO we guess. In truth, FaceApp’s terms of use are very similar to most of the apps we frequently use on a daily basis like SnapChat or Instagram, so you’ve probably already given up a significant portion of your privacy anyway.

We’re all doomed and this won’t be the death stroke. Just relax and settle into looking old now, while you can, before the apocalypse precludes that.

And the icing on the cake are these 13 LAtino celebrities who either took the FaceApp challenge or we did it for them.

1. J Balvin

Well this is just unfortunate. Sure the photo being in black and white probably doesn’t help much but OMG this is probably the worst of the FaceApp photos I’ve seen so far. Thankfully, he’s still an amazing musician and though his looks may fade he’ll always have that.

2. Maluma

Ok…#swoon. Maluma baby is giving me full on zaddy vibes and I don’t care if he’s sixty years old I want this man now and forever.

3. Becky G

Looking fierce as ever.

4. Luis Fonsi

Right…so here’s the thing. Luis is already a good looking guy. I mean look at that hunk of a man. Goergeous. Those arms. And if Luis Fonsi has those same arms at 50 or 60 then I’m totally on-board with old Luis.

5. Shakira

Shakira looks like a timeless beauty in this photo and we know that age will be good to her as she gets older.

6. Cardi B

Credit: Getty Images / FaceApp

In a since-deleted Instagram post, Cardi B predicted this is how she’ll probably look at 80. I mean if that’s Cardi at 80…science must have found a fix for aging.

7. Daddy Yankee

8. Mario Lopez

9. Camila Cabello

I feel like Camila will definitely have a future in telenovelas as the villain.

10. Natti Natasha

Natti is kind of giving me Demi Moore vibes and I’m totally her for it.

11. Don Omar

Ayyyñ Don Omar…pobrecito. Ageing does not look like it will be kind to you.

12. Ricky Martin

Again, absolute pure zaddy vibes. 100%. Ricky Martin is already a total DILF but this FaceApp takes it to the next level.

13. Demi Lovato

Ok…so Demi Lovato just doesn’t age at all? What gives? Fierce and as beautiful as ever.

Some Of Hollywood’s Biggest Celebrities Weren’t Even Born In The U.S.

Instagram

There’s no denying the fact that the entertainment industry has vastly become an amalgamation of artists from different countries, cultures, and backgrounds. After all, it was largely built, in great part, by migrants who either fled war-torn countries or arrived in the U.S. with nothing to build a better future. Since the early days of Hollywood, when European migrants fled the two world wars and then the Cold War, showbiz has been accommodating to creative minds searching for a conduit to tell their stories through song, words or film. In these days in which many question the value of cultural diversity, it is important to remember how much migrants have contributed to the social, cultural and political foundations of the United States and other Western countries.

Here are 17 individuals who wouldn’t take no for an answer, and we thank them for it!

1. Gloria Estefan

Country origin: Cuba
Now lives in: the United States

One of the most influential personalities among the Cuban community in Miami was born in 1957, right in the middle of the Cold War, in Havana. Her father was a soldier and motor escort for Cuban dictator Fulgencio Batista, so the the family moved to Miami when the Revolution struck. Estefan’s dad later fought in Vietnam. Gloria Estefan is a famous opposer to the revolutionary regime in Cuba. Her dad suffered from the effects of Agent Orange after Vietnam, so Gloria’s mom was her source of support. She has said: “My mom was a source of strength. She showed me by example that women, regardless of how difficult life may get, can do it all”.

2. Kumail Nanjiani

Country origin: Pakistan
Now lives in: the United States

The star of The Big Sick was born in Karachi, Pakistan, and grew up in a religious Muslim family. He moved to the United States when he was just 18-years-old and he completed a major in computer science and philosophy, a combination that later led him to his iconic role in the HBO hit comedy “Silicon Valley.” Being a Muslim in America in this day and age is not easy, and Kumail has found a way to sublimate these struggles through his art.

3. Salma Hayek

Country origin: Mexico
Now lives in: France, previously in the United States

Salma Hayek has generated hundreds of jobs in the United States through her movies and her production house, as well as millions of dollars in revenue. She arrived to the United States and initially overstayed her visa before getting a green card. She is open about this, and she has become a citizen of the United States. She lives in France for most of the year with her husband, billionaire Francois-Henri Pinault.

4. Jim Carrey

Country origin: Canada
Now lives in: the United States

If we think of politically engaged actors in Hollywood, we have to think about Jim Carrey. He was born in Ontario, Canada, but has lived in the United States for decades. He is often outspoken when it comes to politics and he became a citizen in 2004 to be able to vote in the presidential elections. He is as funny as he is intelligent: his political stances are humanitarian in nature and fierce in practice. His philosophy is encapsulated by this awesome phrase: “I think everybody should get rich and famous and do everything they ever dreamed of so they can see that it’s not the answer”. Just wow.

5. Natalie Portman

Country origin: Israel
Now lives in: the United States

The Oscar-winning actress holds both an Israeli and an American passport. Besides being an actress, Portman is a consummate scientist and has authored academic papers.

6. Sofia Vergara

The highest-paid actress in television was born in Barranquilla, Colombia, and moved to Miami to find fame and fortune. She also found a home in the United States.

7. Filmmaker M. Night Shyamalan

Now lives in: the United States

Once touted as the next Steven Spielberg, M. Night Shyamalan was born in Puducherry, India, in 1970. His parents migrated to the United States when he was barely six years old and he was raised in Hindu, which made his cultural adaptation harder. He is an honorable member of the American-Indian community and he always shows his ethnicity proudly on his sleeve.

8. Cesar Millan, the Dog Whisperer

Country origin: Mexico lindo y querido
Now lives in: the United States

One of the greatest stars of reality television arrived illegally and with a mere $100 USD in his pocket. He chased his American Dream and he found it thanks to his amazing ability to get into the minds of dogs and into the hearts of celebrities and lay people alike. A true standout among Latino entertainers.

9. Singer Regina Spektor

She was born in Moscow in 1980, in the then Soviet Union. Her parents fled the communist regime when she was nine, seeking a refugee status in the United States with the help of HIAS (the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society). Spektor is a classically trained musician that has experimented with all sorts of genres. Know that amazing opening song in “Orange is the New Black”? Well, that’s her!

10. Music legend Carlos Santana

One of the godfathers of Chicano rock was actually born in Jalisco, Mexico. The family moved to the border town of Tijuana when Carlos was a kid, and then the young musician tested his luck in San Francisco. The rest, as they say, is musical history. Santana is a true hijo de la frontera.

She is a Chilean-American dual citizen and in 2014 then-president Barack Obama awarded her with the Presidential Medal of Freedom. She often lectures on literature in US colleges.
