Audrey Hepburn. - Page 4

AH also tried to play more than a stylish woman on the siver screen. I understand she spent months fumbling around with darkened eyeglasses in order to play the dowdy blind woman in Wait Until Dark. I admire her a bit more for that.

Audrey looks too much like my mother for me to find any attraction to her.

Don't kill me, but I find AH rather boyish, plain and boring. I like my women to have a certain mystery, exoticness and also to be more voluptous than AH. RH is my movie starlet love. I find RH to be a WOMAN among girls, if you will.

Beautifully dressed for a night out.


exotic, mysterious


A sight for sore eyes after a hard day's work


Keeping the boys "moral" up

Did you know RH was Latina? They used to hide these things back then. Similar with Ramon Navarro.

Similar with Ramon Navarro.

Absolutely. Spanish (I hate latino/latina but that is a story for another day) blood runs through my veins. She was a woman from top to bottom.

Right. It was Navarro who was born in Mexico. I prefer Latino/a to "Hispanic", which I really hate. Iberoamericano, or hispanohablante is of course more correct. M8

No problem, this will help bump up my Rita pictures

I won't get into a long discourse here, maybe I'll start another thread but it has to do with the "Latino/Latina" term homogenizing a group of very disparate people. While born in the US, I consider my ethnicity to be spanish or hispanic as my parents are from the Dominican Republic and they trace their roots back to the Spanish colonizers of the island. Mexico and Central America, are more native indian (Aztecs) in their roots, although due to spanish colonization of Mexico you see both "indian" and "european" Mexicans. South American's are of white European stock, for the most part. Within these, there are more subgroups. Politically and culturally there is a somewhat of a similar foundation but there are more differences than similarities. To me, it's equivalent to lumping a German and a Brit and simply stating that they are "European". My point is, there is a lot of history and culture that a single term cannot convey.

So, basically, you feel that the term is too general?

thanks
actually, you like it for the same reason my wife doesn't - basically because so few people from latin america are really from spanish stock. in colombia, if you are from spanish stock, you know it (like you do). so she figures it is better to use a term that encompases more, and doesn't refer to a spacific genetic heritage.

she is, by the way, from northern european stock. it freaks a lot of people out around here. new yorkers aren't used to a redhead who speaks spanish.

I am also 'hispanic' and I have to admit to not using the word 'latino' to describe myself. (And I hate it when Americans use the word 'Mexicans' to describe us in general.) It's not that I hate the word, but to me, 'latino' is incredibly overused. You hear it everywhere. And considering that I grew up in the suburbs, I'm not exactly a posterchild for the latin community. With my mother coming from Dominican Republic (white) and my father from Peru (indian), people have the hardest time figuring out my background (which is always fun ) I have to sort of disagree with you there edmorel about South Americans being mostly of white heritage. They have spanish last names, but there are mostly of indian background. Though with the exemption of Argentina; I have yet to see an Argentinean of indian background. And if you are of European hertiage in SA, you tend to be high in the social ladder. And speaking of European and indian Mexicans, it's funny to see Americans surprised to find out that those handsome/beautiful white actors and actresses in the spanish soap operas are usually Mexican. Edit: Jesus, Mary and Joseph! Rita Hayworth is incredibly hot!
