Will Smith

Will Smith knows a thing or two about playing a real person on the big screen. He’s done it in Ali, in The Pursuit of Happiness and now in Concussion. The story tells the tale of Dr. Bennet Omalu, the neuropathologist and Nigerian immigrant that forever changed the game of American Football. In 2002, Omalu performed an autopsy on Mike Webster, one of the Pittsburgh Steelers' most famous players. In the years before he died, Webster had struggled with mental illness and fallen into financial ruin.

Benicio del Toro

Without a doubt Benicio del Toro is one of the best actors in Hollywood, and it happens to be also a proud Latino. The Oscar winning actor was born in Santurce, Puerto Rico in 1967 to lawyer parents, and moved to Pennsylvania when he was 12. In 2000 he played a police officer in Steven Soderbergh’s Traffic, for which he won an Academy Award, a Golden Globe and a Bafta. He has also starred in The Usual Suspects, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas and Che. In his latest film, Sicario he plays Alejandro, a former prosecutor turned CIA collaborator

Anne Hathaway

Anne Hathaway has proved herself in many ways, she’s got an Oscar, a huge success in the box office with a few blockbusters, critically acclaimed movies, a comedy classic in The Devil Wears Prada and also she is a passionate of the Spanish Culture. When we sat for the interview in a hotel of New York she says how much she enjoyed her last trip on vacation to Spain, to Ibiza just a few weeks back. With very few good movies for women and a fierce competition for them Hathaway recognizes how hard she has to fight for her place in Hollywood.  

Meryl Streep

We are in a suite at the Ritz-Carlton in New York, with us a Hollywood legend known for playing great women, mastering accents, and generally making her mark as the greatest actress on earth.  But now it seems that Meryl Streep is enjoying a second life as a musical performer.  Having first sung in films like Postcards From the Edge and Ironweed, Streep again wowed critics and audiences alike with her singing in 2008’s hit musical, Mamma Mia. Earlier this year, she displayed her vocal agility in Into the Woods where she pushed her voice “beyond all my expectations.”

Mark Wahlberg

Mark Wahlberg is the actor of the moment, producer of the show Ballers and protagonist of the comedy Ted 2. Writer, producer and actor, Wahlberg declares in the interview that he is an advocate for the kids with difficulties. Wahlberg who to play The Gambler studied literary works like Beowulf and sat in on college lectures likes to research and study to do a good acting job. This Bostonian lives in Los Angeles and speaks very good in Spanish.

Chris Pratt

The star of the moment comes to talk to us about his new status in Hollywood and his passion for Spanish food. It’s Jurassic June and this month the world gets flooded by dinosaurs thanks to the movie Jurassic World. Chris Pratt is the lead actor in this sequel of the beloved dinosaur franchise to wrangle any prehistoric monster in case things go wrong. Pratt shared his excitement to be part of Spielberg’s legacy, working with new director Colin Trevorrow and actress Bryce Dallas Howard, the preparation that went into becoming the raptor trainer Owen Grady. And if that is not enough remember that soon he can become the next Indiana Jones
