Oh, here we go…
Yessica "Don't Call me Latina" Alba is FINALLY addressing why she hates her ethnicity and refuses to play Latin women in film, and we think it's a pretty LAME excuse!
"For me, I never wanted to reinforce any stereotypes about Latin women, and that was why I've shied away from Latin characters I've been offered. Most of them reinforced the stigmas. The women whom I grew up with are intelligent, strong women, and unless I read a woman being portrayed that way in a film, I didn't want to play it."
We think that we'll wash that little quotable down with a shot of BULLSHIT.
Whatevs. Hopefully playing this character in Machete helped her open her eyes to how ridiculous she is!
She should be teaching her kid to EMBRACE where she's from and the culture that comes with it!
But who are we kidding? She'll probably dye her hair back to blonde in like a week!
