Eiza Gonzalez has missed out on film roles because she’s ‘too pretty’.

The 34-year-old actress has suggested that her good looks have actually harmed her career, adding that Latinas are held to a different standard.

The brunette beauty told InStyle: ‘I remember being [told for] so many projects, “She’s too pretty for the role. She’s too hot for the role.” Then I’d just be like, What is Margot Robbie? She’s the hottest, most beautiful woman I’ve ever seen in my life!’

Eiza did not know what to do with her looks and considered shaving her head in a bid to boost her prospects.

The Baby Driver star shared: ‘I had an identity crisis for a very long time.’

The brunette beauty told InStyle: ‘I remember being [told for] so many projects, “She’s too pretty for the role. She’s too hot for the role.” Then I’d just be like, What is Margot Robbie? She’s the hottest, most beautiful woman I’ve ever seen in my life!’

‘I was like, “Do I shave my head? Do I make myself less attractive? Do I make myself more attractive? Do I not dress super-hot or do I dress super-hot or do I cover myself all the time?”‘

Meanwhile, Eiza previously called for greater representation for Latinas in the fashion and beauty industry, after she appeared in a campaign for Louis Vuitton.

The actress – who was born in Mexico City – told Vogue: ‘I grew up watching all these beauty campaigns in the 90s and I wouldn’t see a lot of Mexican women in them, especially in these large-scale brands.

‘It was always kind of sold to me that I had to be a specific style of woman to be it, and the fact that girls in Mexico who are brown and Latina like me will see a campaign like this and recognise themselves in it with the scale of the brand makes me so honoured and happy.

‘It’s normalising an image for people and making people feel included and seen.’

She posed for the Spring 2024 cover of InStyle this month. The brunette beauty looked stunning in an all grey ensemble. 

She opted for a skin tight tank top that flaunted her toned figure with trendy flowing pants. Her snake shaped diamond necklace acted as a shining statement piece. And she added natural makeup with a bold red lip that made her pout pop.

During her interview she touched on her love life. And Eiza admitted that after being cheated on, she now only dates men who have been in therapy.

Eiza suffered an ‘identity crisis’ at one point in her career, with the actress admitting that she’s considered shaving her head in a bid to boost her prospects. The Baby Driver star shared: ‘I had an identity crisis for a very long time’ 

'I was like,

‘I was like, “Do I shave my head? Do I make myself less attractive? Do I make myself more attractive? Do I not dress super-hot or do I dress super-hot or do I cover myself all the time?”‘

The actress shared that when she was a teen idol, she learned that her boyfriend had recorded an intimate video with another girl. She claims that she learned of his infidelity from ‘the cover of a magazine,’ just like everyone else. 

But – it did not leave her in shambles. She decided to take the unfortunate situation and make something positive out of it. Since, she found her upmost success. 

The Mexico City native reflected on the scandal saying she coped with a mix of partying and crying as a young actress in Los Angeles. 

So, she worked tirelessly to distract herself from the failed relationship with her career.  

While distraught and emotional she revealed that her mother pushed her and made moves as she healed. When she updated her IMDB page and got a manager in the United States, the jobs started rolling in.

With 10 years of experience acting and signing in Mexico as that point, she had the resume to back her up.
