In a video for the new campaign by super PACs Jewish Council for Education and Research and American Bridge 21st Century, Rosie Perez feigns sympathy for Mitt Romney, targeting (and mocking) the comment he made at a May fundraiser that it "would be helpful to be Latino" to get elected president. 

Perez, who has campaigned for Obama in the past, makes jokes that the election would be even more "in the bag" if Romney were a "lesbian Latina." 

"Unfortunately for you Mitt, you were cursed with the hard-knock life of growing as up the son of a wealthy governor and auto executive," Perez says. "Being Latino wouldn't win you the election. But saying jokingly that you wish you were might actually lose it for you."

The video comes after a political video starring Samuel L. Jackson went viral. The video asked voters to "wake the f*ck up." The video by Rosie Perez is the first of celebrity-starring videos to highlight remarks made by Mitt Romney and the Republican party. These "Actually..." videos are set to star Sarah Silverman, W. Kamau Bell and Elon James White.
