HOLLYWOOD, CA (Hollywood Daily Star) 2017/4/27 – “We don’t go only back and forth with Spanish and English but we actually introduce the Latin sense of humor with the American sense of humor” says How to Be a Latin Lover star Salma Hayek. “The combination works so beautifully that, even if it didn’t have the translation, I think there’s a lot of moments that are very funny.”


“I’m really nervous and excited about this project” says How to Be a Latin Lover star Eugenio Derbez. “This is my first movie starring in English in the US. It has a lot of my input from my comedy style, but I was not sure that it was going to be funny enough for the general market.”

How to Be a Latin Lover tells the story of Maximo, who is an aging Latin American gigolo that ends up in a difficult situation when his sugar mama dumps him for someone younger. Maximo is forced to move with his sister and starts looking for another mistress to avoid work at all cost.
