In her new film La Soga, Denise Quiñones plays the childhood sweetheart of a government assassin in the Dominican Republic (played by writer/actor Manny Perez). We talked to the former Miss Universe at the movie’s New York premiere last week and she told us about the latest projects and her love of bad boys.
What drew you to this project?

This weekend’s box office champ, The Expendables, may have lured in audiences with not one or two, but 10 big-name action stars, but tucked among all the beefcake was a Latino who gives a solid, entertaining and surprising performance: Dexter’s David Zayas.

Aubrey Plaza is one funny chica. We've loved her ever since we caught her role as the laziest intern ever, April Ludgate, on NBC's sleeper hit Parks & Recreation. Her deadpan delivery just makes everything she says sound so much funnier.

Sometimes the magic of movies can come across as, well, a little too magical, as in, utterly unrealistic. Case in point: Super sexy chica Eva Mendes has been paired with a fair share of dudes that she would probably never look at twice in real life. In The Other Guys, she plays the loving and devoted wife of frizzy-haired underachiever Will Ferrell. But who knows?

We chicas spend a considerable amount of time trying to find The One—no wonder there are so many romantic comedies out there! But the truth is that some of the most rewarding relationships we have are the ones with our hermanas, whether they be tied to us by blood that (as in Selena Gomez’s new movie, Ramona and Beezus) or by friendship. And there are some great movies that reflect that.

Robin Hood may start with an inventive battle scene featuring all the ingenious, raw trappings of Medieval warfare—crude bombs, hot tar being poured on soldiers over a castle wall, whooshing arrows that the camera follows from bow to someone’s eye—but that’s not what makes it a worthy addition to a long list of Robin Hood movies that stretches back to Hollywood’s early years. What’s satisfying about the flick is that it mixes the action with a story that goes beyond a dude in tights taking from the rich and giving to the poor.

As the paranoid, self-indulgent King John in Robin Hood, Miami native Oscar Isaac steals every scene he’s in. We recently caught up with the sexy, rising Cuban-Guatemalan actor (you’ve seen him in Che, Body of Lies, All About the Benjamins and The Nativity Story) and asked about playing a mean-ass white guy and jamming with Russell Crowe between takes.
Your performance as King John was fun and scary at the same time. How did you prep for the role?
