Actress ROSIE PEREZ fired her first two agents - because they told her to fix her nose and go blonde.
The Latino IT COULD HAPPEN TO YOU star refused to change her look just because her advisors felt she'd find work easier. She explains, "I was very insulted. I always thought I was pretty damn cute. "I went home and I was really saddened by that because it sends out a negative message to women of colour - it's like in order to make it you have to be blonde and you have to be the right colour. It's not right and it's not fair and I wasn't going to do it." (KL/WNV/RP)
