The funny thing is I'm not even Latin. I was constantly getting Latin roles, and I was like, I even was nominated for an award, and I was like, 'Let them know at the NAACP, the first white woman. Let them know I'm totally grateful, but I'm not Latin. I can't do that. I play Latin.'
I torture my mother with all my problems, that poor woman.
New York's my home. Born and raised. I'm a New Yorker to the bone.
You know, I still live in my neighborhood. I live in Brooklyn and the same neighborhood, so I don't really get star treatment like that. I'm still Vanessa from the neighborhood.
I always get scared. I can't read scripts. I'm scared, scary movies and stuff.
