Earth to Vanity Fair! Here are 19 hot Latinos taking over young Hollywood

I was sad, as always, to see that Vanity Fair’s list of young Hollywood stars didn’t include any Latinos. In fact, their list rarely includes any actor or actress of color. But that doesn’t mean that we don’t have some talented pretty young things out there.  

Our list of the hottest stars includes ones as young as 13 and as old as 30, who have appeared in TV or broken out in movies and are, like many of us, bicultural.  But one thing’s for sure: these are some of our most talented stars and they are on the rise, poised to take over Hollywood in no time.
