Study: Latina Women Most Likely to Be Naked On Screen

Academy Award-nominated actress
and producer Salma Hayek.
Hispanics are dramatically underrepresented and hypersexualized.  In contrast to the representative numbers on black and Asian characters, only 4.9% of speaking characters in the years surveyed were Hispanic. Compare that to the 16.3% of the U.S. population that is Hispanic -- and the fact that Latino moviegoers buy 25% of all theater tickets -- and the numbers are appalling.

Drama Desk- and BAFTA-nominated
actress Cameron Díaz and Academy
Award-winning actress Penélope Cruz.

I do not think that is true I mean it is one of the few rubbish perceptions on hot latina women that hold no meaning. What you think guys?
