Jessica Alba and Rosario Dawson.
"Producers are not prone to create projects that feature Latinos unless they're pushed. As Latino movie audiences grow, there will be more demand for productions that feature Latinos in the lead or in the theme of the movie. In the long term, they will have to react as the audience gets bigger, more demanding and more politically active." Manny Alfaro, Executive Director, Hispanic Organization of Latin Actors (HOLA)

Salma Hayek and Antonio Banderas.
