Latin Beauties 9
More Beautiful Latin Women With Paz Vega, Mayra Veronica, Paola Rey, Natalia Paris and more.
Here we are at my ninth beautiful Latin women article.
This one of course has the usual actresses, singers, songwriters, dancers, models and beauty queens, but this is the first one I think I have done where none of the women are from Mexico.
This time we have lovely ladies from Colombia, Venezuela, Peru, Cuba and Spain.
Far from having just pictures of gorgeous women, this Hub answers burning questions like...
Who was the first Colombian actress to appear in a Mexican telenovela?
Which of these stars started out on the kids show Xuxa?
Which one used to date a Colombian mobster?
Which of these beautiful ladies was studying industrial engineering before she became an actress?
And whose father was a retired bullfighter?
Read on and find out.
The lovely Spanish actress Paz Vega was born on January 2nd, 1976 in Seville, Spain.
Her mother was a homemaker, and her father was a retired bullfighter.
She has appeared in almost thirty films, and American audiences probably best know her as Flor Moreno from the 2004 Adam Sandler film, Spanglish.
And if you are one of the 50 or so people that saw it, you may remember her as Plaster of Paris in the 2008 Frank Miller film, The Spirit.

Natalia Paris is a Colombian model that is so popular; she has her own brand of personal care products.
She was born on August 12th, 1973 in Medellín, Antioquia, Colombia.
Natalia has her own website (http://www.nataliaparis.com.co/) where you can see her modeling portfolio and buy her products.
She has had a fairly rough past, having been in love with drug trafficker, Julio César Correa, a man with which she had a daughter.
After getting caught in the act by American authorities, he turned informer and then disappeared later.
(My guess is he's either dead or in WITSEC).
His story was so popular that a Colombia telenovela. El Cartel de los Sapos, was made about him.
Natalia's character also appears in the soap.
Paola Rey is a Colombian actress and model that was born on December 19th, 1979 in Bucaramanga, Colombia.

When she got a role in the Telenovela Fuego Verde, she gave up her studies and went into acting full time.
Colombian actress, model and singer Jery Sandoval was born on December 18th, 1986, in Barranquilla, Colombia.
Jery appeared in the Colombian version of the Argentinean telenovela, Los Roldán, the Colombian telenovela Los Reyes (The Kings), and she became the first Colombian actress to act in Mexican television when she appeared in the Televisa telenovela, Código Postal.
