Topic: Latina Celebrities – Playboy

There have been a lot Latina celebrities who posed nude in one of the most famous men magazine Playboy.

Singer Noelia who is Puerto Rican posed for Playboy Mexico in November 2010 and actress Olivia Collins who is Mexican posed in September 2010.

Is this a good image for Latina stars to show or is this a negative image?

Latina celebrities have come a long way in the entertainment industry. It was difficult for Latinas to act in films as a Latina. Such as, Rita Moreno who played a Native American character. Unfortunately, Latinas had to play characters of another nationality in order to get work in Hollywood.

In other words, Latinas fought long and hard to have place in Hollywood, to have recognition as beautiful and talented entertainers.

Furthermore, Latina celebrities have a reputation of being a beautiful people; hair, skin tone, and physic. So, does Playboy show an ugly image of Latina celebrities because they pose nude in the magazine?

Topic: Junsu (JYJ)

JYJ’s Kim Junsu plays Tod in the musical “Elizabeth” which is based on a real story.

This role is challenging for Kim said of his role,  “Doing something that I want to do and something that I can do is another story. I thought that ‘Death’ has to be grave and dignified, and the actor who plays this role has to have enough acting experience. I agonized greatly whether I could successfully play the role. But I realized that ‘death’ does not exist and there will be no correct answer.”

He made the decision to play this role of death and how he would make the character his own, Kim explained, “The head of our agency asked me, ‘Why do you think that the character should be dignified even though it does not exist?’ After I listened to his question, I realized that it could be young or innocent, and I decided to present ‘Death’ my own way, according to how I think.”

Kim asked himself questions on how to approach his difficult role, Kim said, “What is after death?” and “Do I really die someday?” and he further explained his definition of death to be,  “Death is something that makes people feel that they are only human who inevitably die, which makes people feel miserable.”

Kim put a lot of thought and feelings into the entire play including the thoughts and feelings of Elizabeth, how she felt and thought before death. He said,  “Death asked Elizabeth what ‘death’ meant to her, and she answered that she, who had been dreaming of free life, felt pessimistic when she became the empress. I thought that ‘death’ might have brought her a kind of freedom, comfort, and peace.”

Kim will be playing the role Tod which death in twenties and two other actors will take over the role in their thirties and forties, Kim said, “Watching different acting by different actors who play the same character is a very exciting element and the power of the musical.”

The singer expressed he wants his critics to see him as a musical lover not just a pop idol, “I knew that some people criticized me that I had been cast as the protagonist only because I came from a star idol group, and I had been very cautious. I did not know about musicals at all when I appeared in the musical ‘Mozart’ as the protagonist, but musicals gave me strength and hope when I had gone through a very difficult situation, so I do not want to give up appearing in musicals. Now I only think that I have to repay the audience and the producer who have shown trust to me. It is true that I come from an idol group, and I am trying my best to change people’s prejudice about me. I want to be regarded as a musical actor who really loves musicals.”

Kim is the third member of the music group JYJ which is working on a new album set to release in 2012 and one of the original members of the super group TVXQ, the most talked about groups from fans to reunite.

Elizabeth, who came to be destined to live in the cage of the palace even though she had been pursuing her free life and love, became weakened by Tod’s temptations.

The musical will run for three months February to May 2012.

Octavia Spencer: Hollywood Should Be More Accepting Of Actresses Of Different Sizes

ACTRESS OCTAVIA SPENCER

Congratulations to actress Octavia Spencer 39, on winning best supporting actress at the SAG awards on Sunday January 29, 2012. According to People, Spencer said ” “I am not healthy at this weight, “Any time you have too much around the middle, then there is a problem. [And] when you reach a certain weight, you are less valuable.” According to People Spencer said,  Hollywood should be more accepting of actresses of different sizes. “I feel for the overly thin women as much as I do for the overweight women. It … has to change.” According to People.

I can relate to Spencer regarding having too much weight for Hollywood. I’ve studied acting all my life and had big dreams of becoming a Soap Star. I had professional pictures made and sent them to Daytime Drama “Day Of Our Lives,” just to be an atmosphere actress to get the feel of  soap acting.

I remember calling the atmosphere casting for Days Of Our Lives asking for work and I was told “Oh let me pull your photo, she then said “Oh sorry we can’t use you.” I was crushed; however, “Days Of Our Lives still remains to be my favorite soap.

In Hollywood “Central Casting” is a casting agency for actors and  when you call them looking for work you hear “We are looking for a smoking hot body, must be blonde, blue eyes and wear size 0-2 and this is 99.9 % of the time.  The only time Hollywood is looking for plus size actresses is when they need a crowd.

This is why I support actors/writers/directors Tyler Perry and Spike Lee because they cast REAL people, real life situations, all sizes. If you are not a size 2 and look like Halle Berry, Hollywood does not need you, will not write for you; therefore, you will never be cast if you are over-size 4.
