On what changed with her body over the past 10 years: "My boobs; they’re not bad, by the way. I’m not complaining about them."

On her sexy image: “When I first started, I found that I had to play the part of something they could swallow in Hollywood, which was the sexy Latin girl, I was not dressing like that in Mexico. My career has given me a lot of experience to be under pressure of having to be beautiful, and having to look for tricks to make it work."

On getting sexier with age: "As a woman, you should be more at ease with your sexuality when you are in your 40s. You are more self-assured about that part. And that's the way it should be. If you are a girl who cannot walk in heels, it doesn't matter how beautiful you are. If you look like a chicken that's been spiked in the feet, it's not going to be sexy."

On fighting aging and plastic surgeries: "I believe that every woman is entitled to fight to preserve her youth. But not by becoming overly surgified by celebrity dermatologists. It's like the uniform of a generation. And it's not necessarily beautiful. It's not wrinkled-looking, but it's not beautiful.

On her luxurious lifestyle: “I never understood the point of being privileged if you don’t get to have the privileges. Like, people who won’t take their kids to an expensive restaurant, or won’t travel with them, or make them pay for everything at a really young age. I think it’s important that kids have responsibilities and understand the value of things, but I think it’s great I get to travel the world with my daughter.”
