    For Rodriguez, daughter of the famous Venezuelan singer Jose Luis “El Puma” Rodríguez and Cuban model Carolina Perez, entertainment is all in the family. Born and raised in Miami, the actress maintains: “If you would have asked me three years ago if I thought I was ‘exotic,’ I would have been confused,” says Rodriguez, 25. “I always thought I was as American as a cheeseburger!” Best known for her work as a jewelry thief in Man on a Ledge, Rodriguez also starred as Sonia with Will Ferrell in the comedy Casa de Mi Padre. An admirer of Salma Hayek and Penelope Cruz, she co-stars opposite Arnold Schwarzenegger in The Last Stand and also will appear with Melissa McCarthy in 2013’s Identity Thief.
