I’m obsessed with Keira Knightley. I think that she’s just got it down. She takes chances, she’s edgy, but she’s always a lady. She is so unconventionally beautiful.
I feel I’ll take on the responsibility of showing the world a whole different kind of Latin woman.
I wanted to be a nun when I was very little. Well, that was until my sister told me that they don’t get paid. Then I went off with that idea quickly.
