These 13 Mexicans Are Taking Over Hollywood, In Front Of The Camera And Behind It

While Hollywood still has a lot of work to do when it comes to diversity both in front of the camera and behind it, but the tide has begun to turn. Mexican actors and audiences are pushing for more representation in television and movies. Although on-screen representation remains low, it’s changing like never before —especially when it comes to portraying complex characters that do more than meet a diversity quota and appeal to a dated stereotype. 

In the last few years, a wave of Mexican artists has charmed Hollywood. They are finally claiming roles that portray well-rounded people with complex storylines and life experiences. These 13 Mexican stars are currently pulling up a seat at the table in Hollywood for all Latinos. 

1. Eiza Gonzalez

2. Salma Hayek

After the huge success of “Nosotros los Nobles” in Mexico, Karla decided to try her luck in the U.S. and secured a role in ‘How to Get Away with Murder”, a legal drama starring Viola Davis, available on Netflix. 

4. Gael García

The 39 year old actor has been taking parts in film since the early 00s. In 2015 he won a Golden Globe for the comedy-drama “Mozart in The Jungle”. He’s participated in huge blockbusters like Babel in 2006 and more recently in Disney’s Coco.

5. Diego Luna

It’s hard —if not impossible— to talk about Gael García and not mention his oldest friend Diego Luna. The actors charisma has earned him several roles in important films in the US. such as Rogue One, Elysium, or Salma Hayek’s Frida. Not to mention his recent success playing prominent drug lord Miguel Angel Féliz Gallardo in Narcos:Mexico.

His most recent film, Roma, was a huge hit in film festivals around the world. He’s already taken home an academy award for “Best Director” in 2013 for the film “Gravity”, starring Sandra Bullock. 

8. Eugenio Derbez

@eugenioderbez

The comedian is already one of Mexico’s most popular actors. But now, Derbez has crossed over to the U.S. in films like “Overboard” next to Anna Farris, “How to be a Latin Lover” and most recently; “Dora and the Lost City of Gold”, the live-action adaptation of Nickelodeon’s Dora The Explorer. 

9. Luis Gerardo Méndez

@luisgerardom

After his involvement in “Mystery on Board” starring Jennifer Aniston and Adam Sandler, Méndez attracted international producers. His latest venture in film, the reboot of the classic comedy-drama, “Charlie’s Angels” doesn’t drop until November, and we can’t wait to see who he’s playing next.

10. Chris Pazcal

@chrispazcal

The young actor secured his first major part in an international movie alongside famous stars such as Leah Seydoux and Collin Firth. The Mexican made his debut in film playing Niko, the techy marine in “Kursk”, based on the 2005 sinking of a nuclear-powered submarine. Pazcal is not new to the acting world though, he comes from a family of famous actors in Mexico. Magda Guzmán, his great-grandmother, was an actress during the golden age of Mexican cinema and his grandmother, Karina Duprez, was a producer and director. So naturally, we’re expecting to see great things from him in the near future.

11. Diego Boneta 

@diegoboneta

This actor’s career only seems to rise. Since his debut in Hollywood playing Drew in the classic Rock musical, “Rock of Ages”, Diego has secured more and more important roles, as evidenced by his part in the new Terminator film. Shwarzenegger’s return to one of his most iconic roles is expected to hit cinemas on November 1st. 

12. Guillermo del Toro

This director has been dazzling crowds around the world for a few years now. His masterpiece “The Shape of Water” earned him an Academy award for “Best Picture” last year. Other big hits of his have been Blade II and Hellboy I and II. 

13. Alejandro Gonzalez Iñárritu

González has taken home, not one, not two, but three Oscars. First in 2015 to “Best Picture” and “Best Director” for film Birdman, and then in 2016 to “Best Director” for The Revenant. We’re pretty sure this makes him film royalty.

A Woman Was Spying On Her Neighbors And Got Her Head Stuck In A Fence

mundoactualizate / Instagram

So how bad do you crave the chisme? Be real. I’m pretty sure I can speak for all of us when I say that pretty much everyone is down for gossip.

Like try and tell me you aren’t the person that peers down from their window when they hear an argument outside. Or that you aren’t the type that glances over at the phone of the person sitting next to you on the Metro.

Well one woman has taken that need for chisme to the next level.

In La Virginia, Colombia, a gossipy neighbor needed to know exactly what was going down in her vecina’s home. So this happened.

Credit: mundoactualizate / Instagram

Yup. She got herself, well her head really, stuck between the bars of the house she was trying to spy on. The woman remained stuck for five hours, five hours, until rescuers arrived to cut away the metal bars.

I mean we’re all down for gossip but you have to exercise caution when trying to get the tea.

Credit: @UltimaHora_hn / Twitter

Translation: “The supposed curiosity of a woman in Colombia nearly got her killed…”

Like I’m pretty sure nobody wants to get that kind of a headline written about them after going viral.

To be fair…we don’t know for sure if the woman was actually snooping but after going viral, social media was quick to jump to that conclusion.

And yes, some in the photo were definitely laughing at her.

I mean like if I was there I’d be laughing too.

One suggested the man laughing in the photo had to be her husband.

Credit: Radio La Roca FM 103.9 / Facebook

Translation: “Look how the husband shits with laughter”

Because only a husband could get away with laughing at this. And even that’s a stretch.

And now from Colombia to Honduras to the U.S., the woman has made international headlines.

But luckily for her, at least her face isn’t visible in any of the photos so la chimosa mas famosa remains anonymous. For now.

Making headlines isn’t exactly what you want to do when you set out to spy on your vecinos.

Translation: “If she wanted to go unnoticed, she didn’t succeed.”

Usually, you want to be as discreet as possible. It’s safe to say, this woman was not.

But many on Twitter had nothing but mad props to offer this hardcore chismosa.

As one Twitter user replied to a post about the woman by Remezcla, #Respect. You keep doing you just be more careful next time.
