How many times have we seen Latinas using their sexuality to get to a better place? Ugh.

Yes, she’s that cliché, token Latina character who has sassy comments, hoop earrings, long hair and a lot of cleavage.

She’s completely naked in a hot tub making out with Hakeem ?.

But, wait… She’s barely 18.

And those naked make outs make us cringe since we love her like our baby cousin ?.

It gets more disturbing when you hear her speak because her baby voice reminds us she’s super young.

Ladies, only read if you are seated…because you might just pass out. The eternal papasito Fernando Colunga, the ever-so-handsome Eduardo Yáñes and new-comer hottie Vadhir Derbez have banded together in the new comedy Ladrones. That’s right ladies, three telenovela hunks for the price of one!

Here’s a closer look at all three gents:

Fernando Colunga 


Vadhir Derbez

When interviewed by Variety Latino, the actors explain how they each play a sort of Robin Hood with special talents and work together to return stolen property to people of a small town Texas — but it’s not a sequel to Ladrón que Roba a Ladrón. Get ready ladies, these ladrones will definitely steal your heart and few carcajadas!
