Eva Longoria and her most dynamic pleas suggest in Hollywood

Recent News

Eva Longoria She is one of the most respected actresses in Hollywood. However, the Texan daughter of Mexican immigrants has spent many years with a parallel career in holly that many were perhaps not aware of and saw the light at the Cannes Film Festival. Its premiere is taking place with the new feature film ‘Flamin’ Hot’.

The model and actress took advantage of the Cannes stage to launch a plea that was widely praised, because it exposed the difficulties faced by Latina directors in the film industry to find opportunities and finance their projects. “My film was not low budget by any means, It wasn’t $100 million, but it wasn’t $2 million. When was the last studio film directed by a Latina? It was like 20 years ago. We can’t have a movie every 20 years.”

Longoria added that “28% of ticket buyers at the box office are Latino. Your movie won’t be successful if you don’t have a Latino audience,” defending that presence in the United States.

In addition, Eva Longoria expressed her frustration: “The problem is if this movie fails, people say: ‘Oh, Latin stories don’t work… female directors don’t really work.’ A white man can direct a $200 million movie, fail and get another one. That’s the problem. I have a chance, I work twice as hard, twice as fast, twice as cheap.”
