The proud dominicana-puertorriqueña actress opens up to host Feliciano Garcia about her role as ‘Maria’ in the upcoming animated adventure The Book of Life, in theaters October 17th, teaching children about death through Mexican culture and why she believes it’s important for women to focus on intelligence rather than looks. The 36-year-old "Avatar" and "Guardians of the Galaxy" star and expectant mother of twin sons joined Cafecito in Washington, D.C. at the Hispanic Heritage Awards where she received the Vision Award for her positive leadership in Hollywood and beyond. @CafecitoTime @NBCLatino @zoesaldana
