What is a Latina? There is no succinct definition for the word, other than “from Latin America,” or a “Spanish speaking woman.” For the sake of this article, we are defining Latina women from parts of the world where Spanish is the majority of the language spoken. This includes Spain, Cuba, Mexico and South America. It also involves those women whose parents (or grandparents) came from areas in South and Central America.
What makes a Latina woman so attractive and ageless appears to be a mystery. For the women listed here, there are many different factors, but they all have one thing in common: they do not seem to age. Many of these women seem to work non-stop, while others appear to love the outdoors. The ladies listed here are famous not only for their beauty, but also for their talents and philanthropic work that they do for the rest of the world. It seems like these women have found the fountain of youth, because they are almost all over the age of 40, but yet some still look like they are scarcely past the drinking age.
13 Eva Longoria
If you watched Desperate Housewives when it aired on television, then you should know the name Eva Longoria. Eva played Gabrielle Solis; the beautiful Latina woman who had random flings with the young, good-looking gardener, and had a difficult time staying faithful to her handsome husband.
12 Jennifer Lopez
11 Eva Mendes
10 Lauren Velez
Fans of the television show Dexter, remember the strict, yet beautiful captain of the police force, Maria LaGuerta. If you didn’t watch that show, then you may know Lauren Velez from other television series’ such as Oz, New York Undercover, or as the nurse who assisted Betty’s father in Ugly Betty.
9 Charisma Carpenter
Charisma Carpenter was born on July 23, 1970. She started out her career as a cheerleader for the San Diego Chargers, but was more interested in acting. Charisma was in several commercials during her younger years, and performed in the theater while looking for the perfect role. Charisma appeared for a short time in television shows; such as Malibu Shores, and one episode of Baywatch, but is commonly known for another role she played in two separate programs. She played Cordelia on Buffy the Vampire Slayer, as well as the same character on Angel.
8 Judy Reyes
From 2001 through 2009, Scrubs was one of the funniest television shows that were on at the time. Judy Reyes played Carla Espinosa, a nurse on the series during the entire run of the show. She now plays Zoila Diaz on a different show that appears on the Lifetime network, called Devious Maids. She may be fifteen years older than she was when Scrubs had first aired, but the 47 year-old actress barely looks a day older than she did in her thirties. Judy is another woman on this list who also has a twin sister who is an actress. She was born in New York, and has had numerous roles in other television shows.
7 Daisy Fuentes
Born in Cuba, then moving to Spain at just three years old in 1969, Daisy Fuentes was a natural Spanish speaker. It wasn’t until she moved to New Jersey with her family that she learned English, and she was able to absorb the language by watching the I Love Lucy television series. Daisy started out her acting career as a weather girl for a local news station, and has been showing off her gorgeous Latina smile ever since.
6 Eva LaRue
5 Mariah Carey
4 Judge Marilyn Milian
If you think that an extremely young-looking Latina cannot be intelligent as well as beautiful, then you have never seen The People’s Court. This show has come a long way since Judge Wapner was in charge when the show debuted back in 1981. Judge Milian never dreamed that she would be hosting the series that she used to watch in college at Georgetown, but has been presiding over the court since 2001.
3 Maria Canals Barrera
For fans of the previous sitcom, Wizards of Waverly Place, the first name that comes to mind is Selena Gomez. That is understandable, since she has gone on to make a career for herself by singing and dancing her way to stardom (in addition to acting). If you watched the show, then you may remember her mom, the mere mortal who looked extremely young to be a mother of a sixteen year-old who was always causing trouble. Maria Canals Barrera played the part of Theresa Russo on the Disney television show from 2007-2012, and currently continues to act in other shows and movies at almost 49 years old (yet still looks too young to be the mother of a teenager).
2 Constance Marie
At 50 years old, Constance Marie has teenage daughters and a four year old. She states that she is an “older” parent on her webpage, but she does not even appear to be much older than a teenager, herself.
1 Sofia Vergara
It is so hard to believe that Sofia Vergara recently turned 43 years old. Sofia plays Gloria on the ever-so-funny sitcom, Modern Family; and has been nominated for numerous awards for her efforts on the television series. According to Forbes magazine, Sofia is the “32nd Most Powerful Woman in the World.”
Sofia had originally studied to be a dentist when she was living in Columbia, but decided to become an actress, instead. Her choice to pursue acting seemed like it paid off; she has been in many movies, including two Tyler Perry films and The Three Stooges, from 2012. She also has lent her voice to movies like The Smurfs and Happy Feet Two, and has been seen in commercials for Diet Pepsi and Kmart.
