I’m not angry. But because celebrities’ lives are so visible, I think it
makes it look lighter than it is. I have a really good sense of humor, I’m just
very sensitive. The other day I was reading an article. I don’t even remember
who the actress was, but she’s been around for a long time. She said something
like, “I’m proud that I’ve had a whole career without making it to rehab.” I
thought, That’s such a negative twist on it. I’m proud of people who have the
determination and the fearlessness to actually go and face their demons and get
better. This is a life or death situation. Again, I’m not a spokesperson for
this, but it’s just that I want to support people for their decisions when they
do go in and get help.
I would never call it a challenge. I think being a woman in Hollywood is a big enough challenge. It really is, man. I don't want to be one of those people who complain. But the lack of roles out there--it's unbelievable. I read a lot of scripts. I believe you've got to read one that you know you're not going to do, because you've got to educate yourself on what's out there to make the best decision for you. So it's challenging being a woman. Then there are other kinds of obstacles that come your way, but there are many times that being Latin has actually helped me, being a Cuban-American has helped me.
