Born: October 28, 1974 in San Juan, Puerto Rico

I go into movies thinking, we’re performing, but with interviews, we’re pretending to be completely real. I just can’t get my head around it. And the things we say in this hour could permanently shape our personas. I mean, tell me that’s not a little odd! And because I think that’s odd, people think I’m odd. And that’s strange. Know what I’m saying?

(On falling into acting): “I suck at painting and writing; I tried both. For me, it’s acting because I grew up with it. When we moved to California, we all did commercials and TV shows. Riv was the first to get a TV show and me and my sister Liberty guest-starred on another show. It was kind of accidental.”
