Ana Claudia Talancón’s Skin Politics

In Ana Claudia Talancón on January 12, 2008 at 9:00 am

Mexican actress Ana Claudia Talancón, who starred alongside Javier Bardem in Love in the Time of Cholera, has another movie coming up Arráncame la vida (Take Away my life) sounded off recently to reporter Francis Rodríguez about the treatment Latinos get in Hollywood:

“I’ve received some support, but there still are some directors stuck in stereotypes. They organize everything in boxes and, of course, Latinos have their own box. But they need to know that some of us are güero (white) and blue-eyed.”


Huh? What is this suppose to mean, Anita? Should fairer skinned Latinos be the only ones representing Hispanics in Hollywood? If you’re mad about Hollywood’s bigotry, shouldn’t you be attacking Hollywood and not be making tart little comments about your darker-skinned fellow Latinos?
