LOVED Maria Full of Grace. If you haven’t seen it, you must …if for no other reason than to witness the beginning of what promises to be an amazing career.

Catalina Sandino Moreno is a star.

Here she is last week at the 2007 Hispanic Heritage Awards – total gorgessity and also, if memory serves, a one time one night partner with Jakey G. If I were him, I’d go back to that.

Catalina can next be seen in the Oscar-friendly Love in the Time of Cholera due out next month, though she is not playing Fermina. Javier Bardem however is starring as Florentino. Excellent choice, non?
