HOW HOT IS MAYRA VERONICA?
Mayra Veronica is more than just a pretty face. She is in fact a Latina Superwoman who plans to take over the universe one trade at a time. Already a successful model, actor and TV host, Mayra Veronica is also making waves with her singing career. Besides being gorgeous, Mayra has the brains and determination it takes to succeed in the dog-eat-dog entertainment industry—and believe me, Mayra is going to shine! But guys, don’t let Mayra’s beauty and success intimidate you because at heart she is the most down-to-earth person you will ever meet. You don’t have to be a big movie star to date her because she doesn’t mind going for average Joe’s—just as long as they have gentlemanly manners and can make her laugh. That means there’s still a glimmer of hope that you can meet Mayra and sweep her off her feet. (Not that we’re calling you an average Joe.) Just remember to save the cheesy one-liners!
You’re an actress, model, TV hostess, and singer. You are basically a Jacqueline of all trades. How do you find the time to do them all?
I didn’t intend it to be that way, it just happened to come out that way. A lot of people usually say they do one or the other, but in my case I’ve done them all. I really work a lot and I hosted a show for like three years where I had the opportunity to interview a lot of A-list people. I also model when the opportunity comes up. I’ve also done a couple of movies. I’m really focused on my work and treat each project as important as the next.
Out of all your projects, which do you like the best?
I’m a trained actress and I think all my projects include acting in some way so I would have to say acting. By nature I’m a good actress because I can get into different roles easily and I like having the chance to be someone else for a while.
Did you always want to work in the entertainment industry?
Yeah, I always wanted to somehow be a part of it, but I just never knew how. I always knew it was who I was.
What do you do to relax?
When I am not working, I love to meditate. I’m really into mind control. I know it sounds freaky, but I love to just make everything around me peaceful and quite. I spend a lot of time reading spiritual and meditation books. I also love working out at Gold’s Gym.
If you hardly find the time to relax, how do you find the time to date?
That’s a good one…I don’t. It kind of just happens when it happens, like at events or parties. It’s not something I make time for and that’s probably the reason why I am still single.
You obviously have brains and beauty. Which do you think a woman needs more to make it in this industry?
Bottom line is that in this society beauty is important because everyone is trained to look at your image. So yeah, beauty does play a big role in making it. But there are a lot of beautiful women in this industry, and to truly make it you need brains. I think intelligence really comes out winning in the end.
Do you prefer dating industry guys or regular guys?
Since I’m in the industry I try not to solely look there. You know what they say, opposites attract. But sometimes it really doesn’t matter. If I am attracted to them, then I like them because of who they are and not because of what they do.
You once dated a Saudi Arabian prince who bought you a house, which you in turn gave to your mom as a gift. Are you used to getting such luxurious gifts from men?
A lot of times when you are in this industry and you are a sexy model, a lot of men think they can offer you expensive things and think that they will score. I personally give myself the best of everything, so I really don’t need a man to do it. I don’t want a man to think that by giving me things he can buy me. I usually get the offers, but I don’t take them. The prince in particular was someone special to me and that’s why I took that gift.
So was that the most outrageous thing a man has done for you?
I think the most outrageous thing a man has done for me is rearrange his life for me.
So what makes Mayra laugh and smile?
Someone that can make me laugh. If a guy can laugh at himself and not take everything too seriously then that in turn makes me smile. Guys that joke about themselves are cute.
You grew up in Miami, studied acting in New York, and now live in LA. Which city has the sexiest people?
That’s a tough one. L.A. has the cute model-type of people, but Miami has all the hot Latinos. I am the type of person that looks for beauty everywhere I go, so it’s a toss up between Miami and L.A. Both win in my book.
Was it difficult adjusting to life in L.A.?
I love the weather. It’s so different from Miami. It’s hot, but without the humidity, which means my hair doesn’t frizz out as much as it did back home. I also love Vegas. Being from Miami, I had never been to the desert, but I now love it. I love the whole dry, rocky feel to it. I loved it so much I bought a home near Vegas next to the mountains.
What in a man drives you wild?
I love a good mystery in a man. It’s very intriguing. I also love being spoiled with chivalry. Guys that are gentlemen and spoil me with affection can go a long way with me.
What do you think sets you apart from all the other beautiful women in the industry?
Everyone has got their own way of doing things and standing out. I would say mine is being able to be sexy without making it vulgar. Even though I am showing my body, I make it classy and elegant. I think I bring an old school, 50’s pin up girl charm to the table.
You’re very popular online. How does it feel to be desired by so many men?
I’m pretty reserved and really don’t think about it. I get compliments from guys when I go out, but I don’t really see it until people bring it up. I guess you can say I am pretty modest when it comes to knowing that I am beautiful.
What is one of the craziest things you’ve ever done?
My last minute flight to Monte Carlo with the prince. It was a spur of the moment thing I will never forget. He just called me and told me a plane was waiting for me so I said, why not.
What would you classify as an ideal date?
I’m a pretty simple girl. Just a dinner and a movie does it for me. I guess the fact that if you are with your ideal guy, then any date with him is going to be ideal.
What advice can you give guys on how to pick up on beautiful women?
Definitely don’t overdo it. Be witty with one or two sentences. Don’t overdo it with the cheesy lines because then she will laugh at you. Simplicity is best.
