Lupe Ontiveros in New Movie

In America Ferrera, George Lopez, Lupe Ontiveros on November 26, 2007 at 7:51 pm


I hate Christmas and moreso Christmas films. To me La Navidad is way to much exploited by the commercial world.  Jesus is the excuse for the season. Alright, enough ranting…Look out for Lupe Ontiveros (Maya and Miguel, “Una Vez Al Ano Para Toda Una Vida”, As Good As it Gets, “Desperate Housewives”) in the holiday film This Christmas. While some in the Latino community have said that she plays way too many maids, and she herself has been adamant not to be pigeonholed into Mexican maid roles, there’s no denying that like other underdogs playing servitude roles, she brings stately dignity to the screen. Am I the only one who’s still feeling her as Carmen in Real Women Have Curves opposite George Lopez and America Ferrera?
