If someone were to tell us, "Colombians are hot!" We'd reply with..."Duh!"
They were also just voted the "Happiest Country in the World!" (Maybe that has something to do with being hot?). We'd like to think so!
Any proud Colombians out there?! Check out our list of the hottest Colombian actors, singers and models! (Then tell us: Who did we miss?).
1. Sexist Colombianos: Sofia Vergara
Forty-year-old Colombian bombshell Sofia Vergara certainly belongs on our sexiest list. This Modern Family mama was officially pulled off the market in 2012 getting engaged to fiancé Nick Loeb with whom she rang in 2013. The new year seems promising as Vergara, one of the highest paid women in television, continues her role as Gloria Delgado-Pritchett on the popular ABC show and lends her talents to movies like Machete Kills and The Smurfs 2.
2. Sexist Colombianos: Shakira
This spicy Colombian singer, songwriter, and record producer, is a salacious she wolf and new mother. The expectant glow that the superstar had before giving birth to her first child made her even more beautiful. Don’t think that a new baby will slow her down, though. Keep a look-out for Shakira’s sexiness to shine in the 4th season of NBC’s The Voice as a judge.
3. Sexist Colombianos: Nina Garcia
Seductively smart Colombian journalist Nina Garcia is a staple in the world of fashion. A longtime editor at Elle, the lovely Garcia can currently be found making a splash at Marie Claire as the Fashion Director. Of course, fans have been tuning in to watch her judge the creations of budding fashion designers on Project Runway since it first aired in 2004.
4. Sexist Colombianos: Catalina Sandino Moreno
Catalina Sandino Moreno
One brief look at Catalina Sandino Moreno and everyone can agree that she is a stunner. The award winning actress can be seen in movies like Paris, je t’aime and The Twilight Saga: Eclipse. She is best known, however, for her role in her very first film Maria Full of Grace, a part that made her the second South American actress to be nominated for an Academy Award. Her latest movie, a thriller entitled Magic Magic, is set to premiere later this year.
5. Sexist Colombianos: Juanes
Sultry singer-songwriter Juanes has the kind of animal magnetism only a true musician can attain. Juanes began his music career as a member of Ekhymosis, a heavy metal band, before launching his solo career. He’s sold enough records and earned enough awards to fill a small home, and we bet those bad boy looks have something to do with it!
6. Sexist Colombianos: Ryan Starr
If a group of men were given the opportunity to build their perfect woman from scratch, we bet she’d come out looking eerily similar to the jaw droppingly sexy Ryan Starr. Starr was one of the original American Idol contestants placing 7th on season one. Since then, the singer and actress has boasted one of the highest selling exclusive singles of all time, roles guest starring on major television shows, and several films.
7. Sexist Colombianos: Ryan Cabrera
Musician Ryan Cabrera crooned his way into the hearts of females beginning in 2004 when he released his single “On the Way Down” which became a top ten U.S. hit. The Colombian cutie has since released three more albums and dated stars like Ashlee Simpson, Audrina Patridge, and Riley Keough, but really who could blame these ladies?
8. Sexist Colombianos: Wilmer Valderrama
Suave star Wilmer Valderrama is certainly a jack of all trades and a striking hot commodity. Last year he starred in NBC’s detective show Awake and the film The Girl Is in Trouble which premiered in August at the New York International Latino Film Festival. Fans can soon catch him in all of his muscled, wife beater glory when his newest movie, School Dance, comes out in 2013.
9. Sexist Colombianos: Andrew Keegan
Though he has a vast multitude of credits to his name, part-Colombian actor Andrew Keegan might be best known for his role as Joey Donner in 1999’s 10 Things I Hate About You. Sure, he played the jerk, but teenage girls everywhere couldn’t help but swoon anyway – there’s a reason he’s believable as a cocky underwear model!
10. Sexist Colombianos: Alexa Vega
Alexa Vega was adorable as Carmen Cortez in the Spy Kids series, but now the actress has grown up into one hot chica! While Vega did get divorced last year, a beauty like her won’t stay single long, and it’s rumored that she’s now dating Carlos Pena of Big Time Rush. More than just a new relationship, the new year will continue to bring in more film credits for Vega such as the much anticipated Machete Kills.
11. Sexist Colombianos: Paola Turbay
Forty two-year-old Paola Turbay makes 40 look like the new 20! The actress, model, and presenter made a splash in the early nineties winning the title of Miss Colombia in 1991 and placing second in the Miss Universe competition in 1992. Since then she’s honed her presenting skills and played roles in telenovelas with recurring roles in shows like The Secret Life of the American Teenager, The Closer, and True Blood.
12. Sexist Colombianos: Adam Garcia
Devilishly handsome part-Colombian film and theatre actor Adam Garcia is every woman’s dream. Not only can he act, dance, and sing, but he has a severely sexy accent to boot! He began his career acting in the stage versions of Saturday Night Fever and Wicked in London and in movies such as Coyote Ugly, Bootmen, and Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen. Most recently the actor appeared in Revolution and the production of Kiss Me Kate.
13. Sexist Colombianos: Paula Garces
Colombian born cutie Paula Garcés has that classic girl-next-door charm. It’s this same charisma that has landed her appearances on major television shows like The Sopranos, CSI: Miami, and The Good Wife as well as major parts in movies like Clockstoppers and The Harold and Kumar Series.
14. Sexist Colombianos: Fanny Lu
Blonde Colombian singing sensation Fanny Lú has a becoming smile that reaches for miles, and record of successes almost as long! She has released popular albums like Dos and Felicidad y Perpetua and had wildly successful singles like “Tú No Eres Para Mi.”
15. Sexist Colombianos: Maria Fernanda Yepes
María Fernanda Yépez
Though Colombian actress and model María Fernanda Yépez isn’t really “La Diabla” she plays on Telemundo series Sin Senos no hay Paraíso, this drop dead gorgeous woman could certainly play the sexy bad girl fantasy in the minds and hearts of men across the globe. The fact that she’s graced three consecutive issues of Sports Illustrated’s “Hottest Swimsuit Issue” certainly doesn’t hurt her credibility as a hottie either.
16. Sexist Colombianos: Danna Garcia
Radiant telenovela star Danna García may have only voiced the Barbie in Spanish-language’s version of Toy Story 3, but one look at this beauty and many would liken her to real life Barbie status! With many years of experience and roles in shows like Café con Aroma de Mujer, Bella Calamidades, and Alguien Te Mira, it’s safe to say García isn’t going away anytime soon.
17. Sexist Colombianos: Ximena Duque
This sexily scintillating 27-year-old telenovela actress first rose to stardom in the second season of Protagonistas de Novela. While she didn’t ultimately win the competition, that didn’t stop Ximena Duque from beginning her now busy telenovela career. Fans can currently watch the talented actress in the role of Samantha in Corazón Valiente.
