A machista attitude doesn’t turn any of these ladies on. Check out the famous Latinas who earn more than their (non-famous) partners, and the partners who couldn’t care less.
1. Latina Breadwinners: Jennifer Lopez
Since her divorce from Latin crooner Marc Anthony, Lopez has been involved with 25-year-old back-up dancer Casper Smart. While 42-year-old Lopez was named this year’s most powerful celebrity by Forbes magazine, Smart turned more heads once he became Lopez’s boyfriend (not to diminish his accomplishments as a dancer!). It was rumored that the powerful Boricua cut Smart off from his $10,000 weekly allowance. Even with the rumored budget cut, the couple seems to be going strong with Casper recently tattooing J-Lo’s name just below his waist.
2. Latina Breadwinners: Jessica Alba
After dating a couple high-profile men, including Colombian actor Wilmer Valderrama and Spanish golfer Sergio Garcia, Alba met and fell in love with producer Cash Warren while filming the Fantastic Four. The two married in 2008, and have two daughters together: Honor and Haven. Though Warren’s net worth isn’t too shabby ($10 million? We’ll take it!), Alba comes in at quadruple that. Warren, however, is undoubtedly proud to be with the A-list actress and brought Alba to his 10-year class reunion at Yale University last year (that certainly made an entrance!).
3. Latina Breadwinners: Christina Aguilera
After divorcing from her husband of five years, Jordan Bratman, the pop star immediately began dating Matthew Rutler, a set assistant from her movie Burlesque. The Ecuadorian diva seems to be head-over-heels for her non-famous man. The two were spotted earlier in May, packing on major PDA all over the streets of New York.
4. Latina Breadwinners: Eva Longoria
After splitting from NBA star Tony Parker, the Mexican beauty found love again with Spanish musician Eduardo Cruz. After taking some time apart, the couple is back on again, and have recently been spotted together all over Europe. Eva’s 27-year-old beau is the younger brother of actress Penelope Cruz, and the couple was even seen caring for Eduardo's nephew Leo Bardem – son of Penelope and husband Javier Bardem. While Edurado is successful in his own right, Eva still takes the cake with her acting career and net worth.
5. Latina Breadwinners: America Ferrera
The Ugly Betty star is known for being super-quiet about her personal life, so many were surprised by her marriage to actor and writer Ryan Piers Williams. The Emmy-winning actress met Williams at the University of Southern California after he asked her to be in his student film. The two were married in a very private wedding ceremony back in 2011.
