Bonus Trivia

.

"... what bothers me are the breakdowns, which is what gets sent off to the agents when they say what kind of character they are looking for in a show or film. When I was coming up it was 'We want a Rosie Perez type'. I like Rosie, a lot but that's all you heard. But I swear to God, the one thing that's been going on forever, and they really need to find a another term, is 'She's a spitfire!!! And a hot tamale!' and I'm like, 'Oh my God! She's a f---ing spitfire!! AND a hot tamale?"--- Machado on changing stereotypes in Hollywood to latinola.com, July 5, 2004.
