From Dancing With the Stars finalist Cristian de la Fuente comes a tongue-in-cheek guide to understanding Latino culture-now in paperback. As a contestant on Dancing with the Stars, international star and actor Cristián de la Fuente automatically assumed the role of the flashy Latino dancer, donning bright fuchsia costumes with his bare chest exposed. But Cristián ultimately wowed the judges and reached the finals-not with his fancy footwork but with his charm. Quickly, the producers and viewers learned that just because someone is Latino does not necessarily mean he can dance… And Cristián proved Latinos can and should not be reduced to one-dimensional definitions. In Hot. Passionate. And Illegal?, Cristián uses his personal and funny experiences as a Latino in Hollywood to dispel common myths and admit the sometimes embarrassing, yet endearing, truths about Latinos.
Cristian de la Fuente began acting in Chile. Besides Dancing with the Stars, he has appeared on Family Law, CSI, Ugly… More about Cristian de la Fuente
