What's your favorite song by a Latino artist?

What Pitbull has been putting out lately.

Tell us why you love Latin culture!

Because it's very passionate and family oriented and {Latinos} love food. They also speak through their music in a very sexy, intimate way, which I love.

Who are some of your Latino friends in Hollywood?

My boy Adrian Bellani is the closest one. He's an actor and producer from El Salvador. 

Do you speak Spanish?

No, I've actually always wanted to learn, but have never really had the chance. 

If you could travel anywhere in the Caribbean, where would you go?

I would definitely love to go back to Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic.

What's the first thing that comes to mind when you hear the name "Sofia Vergara?" 

Modern Family. What she has done with her role on that show is great. She is a staple as THE hottest Latina actress, and it is her time to dominate.
