Arguably México’s most famous movie star. She was gorgeous, talented and a complete badass.
Cartier has a jewelery collection named after her. Diego Rivera painted a portrait of her (even though she wasn’t a fan of it).
Reportedly, when asked why she would not take small roles in Hollywood she said “I was not born to carry a basket.” She refused to be stuck with the bit parts in Hollywood when she was a big star in México, South America and Europe. Kinda vain? Yeah but she had a huge fucking point.
