“Life without love is boring” – Ana de la Reguera

Ana, you‘re taking Hollywood by storm. What would you say is the secret to your success?

For me, success means living [how I like] and doing what I like, it is finally my reality and I feel very lucky. But if there is a secret that has worked for me, it would be foolishness, the act of never taking my hands off of the reins, of understanding that this career is a journey more than anything. Sure there are more talented and more beautiful people out there with better ideas, but this career is a long-distance race and I have the personality to endure what is needed to stay afloat. So yes, foolishness may just be one of the things that got me to where I am now.

Have you had that moment yet when you think to yourself, “I made it!”…of knowing that you’ve conquered the City of Stars?

No! I think it is dangerous to think about that. Nacho Libre was filmed mainly in Mexico, it was my first film and I think I was too young to understand the scope of it. The most difficult thing is to be in this moment, to sustain a trajectory. It was about 4 or 5 years after [Nacho Libre], I was working on a series, and in one scene the entire set was working with me on my close up. That’s when it hit me… I have a film crew in this country waiting on me? When did I get here? It was a bizarre moment. Me from Veracruz, from a small town, realizing I was working in that situation was incredible. But I didn‘t think ‘I made it’, I thought, ‘Do they know I come from a small town?

Looking back, are you still that small town girl from Veracruz?

Very much! I hope I am still like her. I‘m still the same, a poor student, still bad at the thousands of things that I don’t like, but the things I am passionate about… I give the best of myself! I am a joker, jarocha, you can’t take the Veracruz out of the girl. I have lived in L.A. for 16 years, almost as long as I lived in Veracruz and longer than I lived in Mexico City. There are still times that I feel unaccustomed to where I am, but in the last year I feel more than ever that I belong here. I am feeling more like a fish in water.

Your biggest childhood fear was that you would die without kissing someone. Any similar fears now?

I don‘t know,” she laughed, “I have already kissed someone, and more so I feel pretty satisfied. At some point maybe I would love to live in Europe, take a sabbatical year…the classic fantasy of everyone who dreams of learning French, Italian, eating pasta, gaining weight, writing…Maybe that is a fantasy I have yet to fulfill.
