Who is actress Alice Braga, soon to be a co-star of the world-famous Twilight actress Kristen Stewart? She is the Brazilian actress that was just A-Listed by male voters over at AskMen.com. Her name and photos now appear on the official hot in Hollywood list of the Top 99 Women.
Ask Men reveals the following details about the young brunette actress, one who has been involved in a plethora of successful film projects but who still has not managed to see her name go mainstream as a face known at the household dinner table in fornt of the DVD on TV.
The men’s news website that often focuses on health and fitness issues of interest to guys writes:
In 2008, Brazilian starlet Alice Braga appeared alongside the likes of Amy Adams, Anne Hathaway and Emily Blunt on the cover of Vanity Fair’s prestigious Hollywood Issue (Braga was actually on the inside cover), which is usually a good barometer for predicting whose movies we’ll be watching in the very near future.
But as the careers of her fellow ingenues soared, Braga — still best known for her 2002 debut in the explosive City of God — failed to find a role that made full use of her considerable talents.
After giving the whole I’m-the-new-Michelle-Rodriguez thing a go in the over-the-top actioners Repo Men and Predators, the svelte South American is ready to test her chops opposite the cream of the crop in the upcoming films On the Road (starring Amy Adams, Kristen Stewart, Kirsten Dunst, and a host of others) and The Rite (co-starring Anthony Hopkins).
Can Brazil produce a legitimate crossover star that does more than pose half-naked and dribble a soccer ball? We’ll go with yes.
Sadly, a fast google search for the name Alica Braga related to charity did not on this date reveal any recent attendances at charity benefit events or celebrity endorsements made by the hot in Hollywood celeb.
Perhaps this is part of the reason why no on in the United States is really familiar with her as a common household name — because her off-screen presence on the red carpet and green carpet scene is lacking?
While getting involved with causes as a celebrity can be a time-consuming and tricky thing, it can also help any star celebs make important friendships and connections in Hollywood social circles and get any new actor or actress much-needed free publicity for both themselves and their personal favorite charity.
As Alice Braga becomes more involved with her work in Sunny California, hopefully she will begin to use her star power more wisely — so her career continues to dazzle fans and her light burn bright for the greater good of the earth or all humanity. [Depending, of course, whether she chose to support an environmental cause or humanitarian non-profit organization with her celebrity endorsement.]
