Genesis Rodriguez: 'Flaunt' Magazine Feature!

Genesis Rodriguez poses in sexy lingerie for a photo spread in Flaunt Magazine‘s Issue 120.

Here is what the 24-year-old Casa de Mi Padre actress had to share with the mag:

On her new Spanish language flick: “I feel like Will [Ferrell] was really doing his Will thing. I didn’t know whether to take [my character] seriously or funny. I made that decision [to play it straight] on my own.”

On her experience doing telenovelas: “I’m bilingual, so I’ve always known the difference [between overacting and unexaggerated acting]. Radio acting, everything was about the voice, and that morphed into telenovelas. I came here and I met a lot of actors who are underplaying. Personally, I think a lot of actors are toning it down way too much. Because I’m Latin, I’m a passionate person as is, so I have a little bit of leeway. Watching Audrey Hepburn makes me happy. She’s not afraid. She shouted. It’s like a performance. Obviously, there’s a beauty in the understatement; there is a reality. [For me], it’s difficult. To me, being Latina, making it big is easy.”

On her role on the telenovela Dona Barbara: ““In the first episode, my character didn’t know how to read or write. I was very animalistic. I would look at people like an animal would. Dude, if I ever have to be a savage, I know how to do it. By the end, I was a very fine lady.”

Here’s what the 24-year-old Man on a Ledge actress had to share with the mag:

On her busy year: “When I was last on the cover [of Para Todos] I had just landed Casa de mi Padre and I was about to start working on Man on a Ledge. I can’t wait for people to see these movies. I can’t wait for the reactions. I can’t wait for the American and international public to get to know me better and to see my work. This is the most exciting time of my life and I can’t wait to share it with people and continue doing what I’m doing.”

On working with Will Ferrell in Casa: “[He] is probably the sweetest most gentle person I’ve ever worked with. I was so nervous during the love scenes but Will was always checking up on me. He was an absolute dream to work with.”

On Last Stand, which she’s currently filming with Arnold Schwarzenegger: “I play an FBI agent. Me with a gun, it’s the greatest thing ever … Arnold is such a great guy and this is going to be such an amazing [film] for him.”
