J.Lo really needs no introduction. This gorgeous Puerto Rican is known as one of dance’s “greatest success stories”. A singer, actress, and producer, along with amazing dancer, is there anything Jennifer Lopez does not do?
Other than her stunning good looks, J. Lo is known for her rags-to-riches success story. She was born in The Bronx to Puerto Rican parents. During her senior year of high school, she was casted in a small role for the low-budget movie My Little Girl. After that, she became convinced she wanted to become a movie star.
To which, her parents responded it’s a really stupid idea, “no Latinos did that”. After falling out with her mother, J.Lo was forced to move from home and slept on a sofa at her dance studio.
My mom and I butted heads. I didn’t want to go to college — I wanted to try dance full-time. So she and I had a break. I started sleeping on the sofa in the dance studio. I was homeless, but I told her, ‘This is what I have to do.’
And pretty soon she did have her big break. Within a year, she was cast as a Fly Girl on the comedy show “In Living Color” and moved to L.A. It was all up from there!
Today, Jennifer Lopez is not only one of the most beautiful Puerto Rican girls on the planet. She has succeeded in pretty much anything she tried and is a legendary performer. In 2018, Time listed her as one of the 100 most influential people in the world. She has made some of the best-selling singles of all time.
And yes, she has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Not to mention that at 49 and a mother of two, J.Lo looks just as smoking hot as she did when she first made her break!
Former Miss USA Susie Castillo is another Puerto Rican national treasure. Castillo was born in Methuen, Massachusetts, to a Puerto Rican mother. Her dad was Dominican but the parents soon split up and Susie was raised by her mom.
The two shared a very close relationship. In fact, Susie recently shared an essay dedicated to her mother:
Where do I even begin with my sweet mom, Carmen? She was the best. A single mother who worked tirelessly to raise her three daughters to be strong, independent, successful women. A woman who always taught us the importance of helping others even though we had very little. A woman who after graduating from high school moved to the U.S. from Puerto Rico to seek work and a better life for herself.
After my father abandoned us (…) my Mami became not only our mother but our father too. In fact, we used to get her Father’s Day cards as well as Mother’s Day cards.
If that doesn’t go to show the Puerto Rican spirit!
Susie did pretty well for herself. She entered her first pageant at 17 and won Miss USA 2003. During the Miss Universe pageant that followed, Susie dressed as Wonder Woman for her national costume. Way to go!
She made appearances on several TV shows and hosted regularly for MTV.
Fun Fact: Her now-husband proposed to Susie during an appearance on the talk show On-Air With Ryan Seacrest in April 2004.
I bet you didn’t know that this Fast & Furious hottie has Puerto Rican ancestry. Michelle was born in San Antonio, Texas to a Puerto Rican father and a Dominican mother. She lived in the Dominican Republic as a child and then moved to Puerto Rico, where she stayed until she was 17.
Her breakthrough role in independent film Girlfight won her several awards and universal critical acclaim. She went on to appear in a number of action movies, most notably, of course, Fast & Furious. Entertainment Weekly has called her “arguably the most iconic actress in the action genre, as well as one of the most visible Latinas in Hollywood“.
But can we just talk about how badass this girl is? She absolutely destroyed the Taran Tactical Shooting Course, boasting some serious skills with rifles, handguns, and shotguns, as well as long-distance shooting. She has also DJ-ed and done skydiving. Talk about a taste for extremes!
Michelle also has a taste for beautiful people – guys and girls alike! Among the people, she has dated are Irish heartthrob Colin Farel and English hottie Cara Delevingne. Michelle also went out with Zac Effron in the summer of 2014 – even though they have nine years of age difference! What can we say – it seems like nobody can resist her!
This movie sensation was discovered on her New York City front porch! Rosario was born in the city to a Puerto Rican and Cuban teen mother. Even though she was born to a teen mom and that she doesn’t know her biological father, Rosario quickly rose above her circumstances. She even lived in an abandoned building with her family for a time! Of her dad she says:
I tried looking him up online, and 70-something names showed up, some of them only with addresses, and I thought: I’m not going to do that … Maybe if I have a child, I’ll want to know, just for medical history reasons.
And as for her roots and ancestry, here’s the story that she had to share:
I remember having a conversation with an actress who was blonde and blue-eyed, and she was like, ‘You’re going to do really well here [Hollywood].’ And I was still really struggling, and said, ‘O-K.’ And she said, ‘no, Rosario, there are a million girls who show up in Hollywood every day who look like me. There’s not a lot of people who look like you.”
And her exotic looks have never failed her! Rosario is considered to be one of the most beautiful Puerto Rican women in Hollywood, as well as one absolutely stunning Latina.
Photographer Larry Clark and Harmony Korine discovered Rosario when she was just a teen. Korine had just written the screenplay for the 1995 movie Kids (yes, that scandalous one) and Rosario seemed perfect for the part. From there on, Rosario starred in various blockbuster movies, including Men in Black II.
Her humble beginnings have inspired Rosario’s charity work. Over the years, she has collaborated with numerous non-governmental organizations.
Prince’s ex might be well into her 40’s now but she is looking as stunning as ever. As a dancer, she has worked with all the A-listers you can name – Britney Spears being just one of them!
She started dancing at the young age of three and at eight she appeared on TV as the world’s youngest belly dancer. Both of her Puerto Rican parents fully supported and encouraged her!
She first met him at a concert with her parents:
My parents were like, if you get to dance with him, you can add that to your resume of people you’ve danced for. I didn’t think I was going to work for him, I just thought I was going to dance for him
It was actually her mom who first passed a cassette of her performance to Prince.
At 16, she was hired to dance during his Diamonds and Pearls Tour. Even though they lived together for three years, the relationship remained platonic until she was 19. The pair were married in 1996. Sadly, following the death of their firstborn child and a subsequent miscarriage, their marriage began deteriorating.
Mayte came out of it a stronger woman. She has one adoptive daughter now and they live together in Las Vegas. Mayte still dances and is far from done with showbiz.
