Rosie Perez of ‘White Men Can’t Jump’ — Still Got It? [POLL]

Rosie Perez Then and Now

That voice. Those lips. The dimples. That teeny, tiny, stacked body with the tail feathers that wouldn’t quit. The Rosie Perez of the 90’s made guys want to be better at basketball and girls better at sweet-faced attitude.

Rosie Perez has been our favorite Latina with an attitude since we can remember knowing what a Latina was and how hot attitude could be. Her full-lipped, dimpled visage thrust us into the 90s with urban swagger in ‘Do the Right Thing,’ ’21 Jump Street’ and ‘In Living Color.’ We loved her varieties of sweet spicyness in ‘White Men Can’t Jump,’ ‘Untamed Heart,’ and ‘It Could Happen To You.’

We lost track of her a little bit in the late 90s and early 2000s, but our little Rosie is all kinds of back now. Her most notable recent appearance was as Carol the crooked cop in ‘Pineapple Express,’ but she has also made appearances on shows like ‘Law & Order,’ was a regular on ‘Lipstick Jungle’ and you can hear that voice as “Click! The Camera” on ‘Go, Diego! Go!’ or in Fox’s ‘The Cleveland Show’ on which she is also a recurring character. Perez has three movies set to release in 2012 and one just announced for 2013.

Dimples and attitude are definitely back.
