8. PAZ VEGA AS FLOR MORENO IN SPANGLISH (2004)
Spanish actress Paz Vega is a ten-spot who’s right up there with Salma Hayek and Penelope Cruz. We’d prefer her to take on roles like Hayek’s bra-and-panties-flashing dancer in From Dusk Till Dawn
, or Cruz’s girl-kissing freak in Vicky Cristina Barcelona
, but in Spanglish
she showed that makeup-less frumpiness could be just as sultry. Vega plays Mexican single mother Flor, the world’s sexiest housekeeper who distracts Sandler’s married protagonist from his cheating wife and other domestic stress factors. After checking out Spanglish
, we hired a Mexican housekeeper in hopes of finding our own Flor Moreno, but all we got was a non-English-speaking heavyweight with a passion for bleach. Once again, Adam Sandler wins.
