Camille Vasquez appeared in her first one-on-one televised interview with Access Hollywood’s Mario Lopez, where she said Eva Longoria could be an excellent fit to play her.
During the candid conversation, Lopez asked Vasquez if she ever had her movie, which actress would she cast to play her role. The lawyer responded to the question with a laugh and initially said she would allow casting directors to decide on professionals:
“I think I should leave that to the casting directors, they get paid a lot of money to do that.”
However, Vasquez then shared that she would like to cast some Latina actresses like Salma Hayek or Eva Longoria to play her role and even mentioned that people told her she sometimes resembles the latter:
“I don’t know some wonderful Latina actress that… Salma Hayek or Eva Longoria. There been some people who have said I look a little bit like them.”
