Barbara Mori From Waitress to Actress
Posted by Deepak Shetty on April 21, 2009
Model Turned Actress Barbara Mori Ochoa was born on 2 February, 1978. She is a Uruguayan-Japanese and Mexican heritage. She has two siblings Kenya Mori who is also an actress and brother Kintaro Mori. Her parents Yuyi Mori and Rosario Ochoa divorced when she was three years of age. One day, while working as a waitress at the age of fourteen, fashion designer Marcos Toledo invited her to work as a model. By the age of nineteen she became a successful model during that time she met actor Sergio Mayer, they had a son from their affair but they never married. Barbara Mori became a telenovela actress with TV Azteca . She got her first break in film in 2000, in the Mexican comedy Inspiracion. Later, she acted in various other telenovelas including, Amor descarado and the highly–rated Mexican soap opera Rubí, which earned her TVNovelas Award. In 2005 she got a lead role in the blockbuster film La mujer de mi hermano as Zoe. In 2008 producer Rakesh Roshan offered her the role as the leading lady for his upcoming movie Kites opposite son Hrithik Roshan. Its said that after breaking up with Mayer, Mori dated Manolo Cardona and now the latest buzz as we know Hrithik dating Barbara Mori. Which might just be a publicity stunt what I feel , never know might be true . And this waitress turned model turned actress is all set to sizzle Bollywood. Few stars like Akshay Kumar who was a buttler by profession turned to be a superstar similarly Smriti Irani so called (Tulsi Virani) from Mcdonalds to Soap Star & now Politics.
So according to me if u wanna be a star start looking out for some job in high class restaurant you might be lucky enough to be on the big screen instead of running behind producers with your portfolios.
