Ana de la Reguera, topless in Esquire magazine
That's how Peter Martin, the reporter for Esquire sees Ana de la Reguera, and although we may or may not agree with this point of view, the good thing is that Ana de la Reguera appears on the cover of the July issue, and topless. The magazine says that this upcoming fall that impression of the Mexican actress will change here in the U.S.

The rising star appears next to Danny McBride in the second season of the acclaimed HBO series, Eastbound & Down, when the drug-addled, homophobic, former baseball star Kenny Powers (played by McBride) leaves North Carolina and moves to Mexico, which he considers a third-world country.
"Yes, in America he feels like a king. Imagine how he feels in Mexico," she says about McBride's character.
Esquire notes that de la Reguera grew up in Veracruz, a beach town, where her mother still lives and where the actress still keeps an apartment. She starred in her first soap opera role at the age of 19, becoming an overnight success and leading to a further 15 television shows and movies. But as she hit the upper limits of the Mexican film industry, which only produces some 30 to 40 movies per year, she moved to Los Angeles to try her luck in Hollywood.
"There was a period where I had to adapt to this country, to audition, in which people didn't want to meet me because they thought that I didn't speak English or that I [still] lived in México," explained de la Reguera to Esquire. It wasn't until last year that she began to obtain roles that really interested her and was able to reject those which were characterized by Latino stereotypes.
"I am going to seem terrible saying this, but they always write parts for Latinos in the same way. There are a tons of roles for doctors, lawyers, policemen, and they are all intelligent, strong, astute, but at the same time they speak quickly and are like 'too much'. I am not interested in spending six years of my life doing that everyday. That's why I told my agent to just send me comedies."
Esquire added that Ana de la Reguera is like a combination of sexy but innocent, similar to the allure of Spanish actress Penélope Cruz or Emmanuelle Chriqui, and even though she's not exactly a comedian, her growing reputation as a comedic actress is leaving smiles on many people's faces.
