Things Are Getting Serious Between Canelo Alvarez and Shannon de Lima (Marc Anthony’s Ex)

Instagram/@canelo

Does Marc Anthony know how to pack a punch? We’re just asking for a friend. Sort of. We only bring this up because it’s come to our attention (thanks Instagram) that Mexican boxing champ Saúl ‘Canelo’ Alvarez and Shannon de Lima (Marc Anthony’s ex), are dating. And not just dating — it looks like things may be serious.

Canelo Alvarez posted this sweet pic of his new GF.

Que es esto tan bello ??? ??

In case you need a refresher, the 29-year-old Venezuelan model and Marc Anthony were married for two years. They announced their split in late 2016, just weeks after the Anthony and J.Lo performed at the Latin Grammys together and ended their duet with a kiss. It was pretty insane.

De Lima made it Instagram official, too!

Mi amor bello ❤️?

She’s clearly smitten.

De Lima even has Canelo singing his heart out:

A friend of Canelo also posted a picture of the cozy couple.

Pa y Ma ❤️

But just because it looks serious to us, doesn’t mean it’s gonna last. Just ask Canelo’s ex-girlfriend.

Kate del Castillo, who was rumored to be dating Canelo in 2015, gave the impression that Canelo isn’t ready to settle down.

According to Univision, when asked what she thought of Canelo’s new girlfriend, Castillo said: “[E]se muchacho cambia de novias como de guantes.” 

In other words, Canelo goes through girlfriends like he changes boxing gloves. Ouch!

Canelo’s next boxing match will take place on September 16 against Kazakhstan native Gennady “GGG” Golovkin. The fight is happening in Las Vegas, Nevada, on Mexican Independence Day.

During a recent interview, Canelo appeared to be annoyed at a reporter for bringing up Marc Anthony:

During the interview, a reporter asked both Canelo and Oscar De La Hoya who should sing the national anthem at the highly-anticipated boxing match. De La Hoya, who was probably thinking about both the U.S. and Mexican anthems, mentioned Luis Miguel, Ricky Martin and Marc Anthony as possible performers. When a reporter asked Canelo how he would feel about Marc Anthony singing an anthem — it’s not clear whether he asked about the Mexican anthem — Canelo told the reporter, “Don’t be dumb.”

Twitter/@Lin_Manuel

The Academy of Arts and Film Sciences has made a push to include more people of color as Oscar voters, and for good reason. After the 2015 #OscarsSoWhite hashtag went viral — that year, most of the Oscar contenders were predominately white  Academy President Cheryl Boone Isaacs vowed to include more women and people of color as committee members. Last year, they invited 683 artists, including Luis Guzmán, Oscar Isaac, Eva Mendes, and Michelle Rodriguez.

This year, a staggering 774 artists, from 57 countries, are now able to vote in the Academy Awards. Several Latino creatives in music, filmmaking, and producing are now Academy members.

Lin-Manuel Miranda was selected in the “Music” category.

The “Hamilton” creator will next be seen in the 2018 feature film “Mary Poppins Returns.”

Many of the new Latino members came from the “Actors” category:

Rodrigo Santoro

Santoro, whose is best known for his role in the 2003 hit “Love, Actually,” recently appeared in HBO’s “Westworld.”

Édgar Ramírez

Edgar Ramírez, who will star in Ryan Murphy’s forthcoming “American Crime Story: The Assassination of Gianni Versace,” made his breakthrough in the TV mini-series “Carlos.”

Longtime character actor Nestor Serrano can be seen in a slew of films including “Bad Boys,” “The Day After Tomorrow,” and “Lethal Weapon 2.”

Noel Gugliemi

Noel Gugliemi, who always seems to play guys named “Hector,” has appeared in “Training Day,” the “Fast and Furious” franchise, and “The Dark Night Rises.”

Director Alejandro Jodorowsky was also included in this year’s class.

The Chilean director is best known for the surrealist films “El Topo” and “The Holy Mountain.”

The Academy states that from 2015 to 2017, there’s been a 359% increase in the number of women invited to join.

However, as you can see there’s not one Latina actress who was invited to join (Paz Vega and Elena Anaya, who were in this year’s class, are both Spanish). There are, however, some Latinas in the writing and directing category: director Patricia Cardoso and writer Paz Alicia Garciadiego.
