Everybody Loves: Rita Moreno

Rita Moreno  – Nee Rosita Dolores Alverío – (born December 11, 1931) Singer, dancer, actress – the only person to win an Oscar, a Tony, an Emmy and a Grammy – Rita Moreno is hot (she’s also won a BAFTA and a couple of Golden Globes – and she dated Marlon Brando). Born in Puerto Rico and raised in New York City, Rita is probably best remembered as the hot latina, Anita in West Side Story – for which she won a best supporting actress Oscar. She stopped acting for 7 years after West Side Story as she was tired of  playing stereotypical latino roles – “Before West Side Story I was always offered the stereotypical Latina roles. The Conchitas and Lolitas in westerns. I was always barefoot. It was humiliating, embarrassing stuff. But I did it because there was nothing else. After West Side Story, it was pretty much the same thing. A lot of gang stories.” She continues to act and was recently seen as Sister Pete in the HBO series OZ. She is currently doing a solo autobiographical show in Berkely CA at the age of 80. Oh yeah, nice stems.
