The bombshell actress may have just turned 50, but she's so devastatingly beautiful that she looks like she's just turned 30. It's been years since the Mexican-American actress wowed us in the 1996 film "From Dusk Till Dawn" as the bodacious snake-charming stripper and she's still got what it takes to knock our socks off. Her sultry good looks are simply ageless. But it's not all about looks and talent. There's so much more than meets the eye when it comes to this amazing actress, like the fact that she speaks Spanish, English, Portuguese, and Arabic or that watching "Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory" as a child inspired her to become an actress, and so much more.

The dark-eyed actress is one fiery presence both on and off screen.

She’s certainly come along way since being born in Coatzacoalcos, Veracruz, Mexico back in September 2, 1966.
