This chapter analyzes contemporary film stardom in Latin America through three stars who represent not just a gender and geographical sweep of the continent (Brazilian Sonia Braga, Mexican Gael Garcia Bernal, and Argentine Ricardo Darin), but also the key discourses that define how Latin American stardom currently works. Although this chapter relates these discourses to individual stars and their careers, it also acknowledges that these concepts apply as well to other contemporary Latin American stars (e.g. Salma Hayek, Wagner Moura)
