Eiza Gonzalez Gains Weight For ‘Dusk to Dawn’ Role

Eiza Gonzalez had to add some pounds for her new role in From Dusk to Dawn and she looks amazing.

The 24-year-old Mexican actress who stared on Univision’s novela, Amores Verdaderos, was asked by producer Robert Rodriguez to gain weight to channel her Latin curves. To fit the part, Eiza gained 13 pounds for her new role as the Santanico Pandemonium in the series From Dusk to Dawn, a role Salma Hayek played in 1996.”In the movie you see Salma’s body and it’s intimidating, so the production wanted to see me looking much more Latina and much more womanly,” Eiza shared with TVyNotas. 

“That’s when I started to gain about 13 pounds, so they could see me look real and I did not hesitate to eat food. Now I feel much more womanly, because my butt grew and my boobies.”

But adding pounds was not the hard part, Eiza found the choreography more challenging than gaining weight.

“I was so nervous, not because of the choreography or because I had to bring a snake to me, but because I had to dance in front of men, which I’ve never done before, but as I started to feel more confident with my body and started to feel sexier, everything just flowed for the scene. Yes, it helped that I gained weight,” she said to TVyNotas.

Eiza has been acting in telenovelas for a while but her name became notorious in Hollywood after she was linked to Miley Cyrus’ former fiance, Liam Hemsworth.

“I don’t worry about what is said about me. I am more focused on being at the same level as my scene partners and demonstrating that although English is not my first language, I can master it without any problems,” Eiza shared.

The series of 10 episodes premiered Tuesday, March 11th.
