The Colombia-born actress, 35, who stars in Tyler Perry’s Meet the Browns and Dirty Sexy Money, is full of surprises:

SHE HAS A 16-YEAR-OLD SON, MANOLO Usually people think we’re brother and sister. But sometimes they think I’m his girlfriend. He will call me “Mom” so they know.

SHE’S ACTUALLY A NATURAL BLONDE I always had really dark eyebrows; that’s why I look normal with dark hair. My son says I’m the only woman in Hollywood who has blonde roots!

IN COLOMBIA, SHE ALMOST BECAME A DENTIST Teeth are the first thing I notice in guys. You can be ugly, but you need to have good teeth.
