Bonus Trivia

.

"Nobody complains about Penelope Cruz, Salma Hayek and Antonio Banderas having accents, because they're big stars. The day I do movies that becomes a huge hit, and I become huge as a result, the business will miraculously forget that I have an accent, too." – Sanchez in Premiere magazine, May 2003
