According to a number of rough translations from Google Translate of Spanish-language reports, Maria Eugnia Suarez, also known as “China,” 24, was the victim of a hack of her photos from her personal devices, leaked to the Internet through WhatsApp. If you aren’t from Argentina, then you’d likely have little reason to know Maria, an actress and model popular in the country. Initial reports were that the pictures were Photoshop fakes. Maria has refused to confirm or deny their authenticity. But slowly, acceptance grew as people combed over the pictures, Maria’s distinct tattoos and her previous pictures to conclude they are more likely than not Maria in the buff. We share because we thought it the right thing to do as global citizens.

Outside Argentina, and a few other Latin American countries, there isn’t that much buzz about these naked cell phone pictures, other than the fact that the women is pretty hot. But in Argentina, these six pictures are like “un regalo do Dios” (a gift from God). We aren’t aware of any new celebrity cell phone leak collection, so we can’t say for certain if these are authentic, but they are getting a lot of play around the Blogosphere. They are of Argentinian celebrity Marina Calabró, an actress, known for Sangre (2003), Susana Giménez (1998) and Sábado Bus (1999), if you follow foreign films. Again, in Argentina this probably carries more weight, she is also the younger daughter of Argentinian comedian actor Juan Carlos Calabró, and sister of actress Iliana Calabró. If none of this measures on your celebrity scandal meter, and it likely won’t, you can still appreciate the hot naked cell phone pictures, and think about broadening your cultural awareness later.

There are two women named Carolina Sanchez who are potentially relevant to us. One is Carolina Sanchez the porn star. She’s from Argentina, and while she’s still active doing porn, she’s not that big a porn name. We’re not talking about porn star Carolina today. Today, we are hot and sweaty with Uruguayan model Carolina Sanchez. She at times goes by Caro Sanchez, which makes sense so she’s not confused with the porn star. Caro was recently in Cyl Moda Intima magazine, showing why you should remember her name more than her porn homonym.

For Argentinian softcore porn actress Isabel Sarli, life after porn is pretty good. She was an actress in the 1950s through the 70s, after having won the “Miss Argentina” beauty pageant and become Argentina’s first sex symbol, a Marilyn Monroe of her country (with more nudity). Isabel was the first to perform full-frontal nudity on film in Argentina, and garnered herself the nickname “La Coca,” for her Coca-Cola shaped curvy body, which she was willing to show on screen. Now at 77, she was recently appointed the nation’s ambassador for pop culture (whatever that title exactly means….). She will work in the Ministry of Culture. President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner said Isabel was a “true representative of national culture.” Kirchner added: “It is as much for her acting skills in films as for being considered a popular icon of her day and an emblematic figure of Argentine cinema.”
Obviously when United States culture critiques attach the label “softcore porn star” to an actress for nude or erotic scenes, her work likely received a different reception in other countries, and “porn” in Isabel’s era was of a very different quality than today. But her nude scenes in Thunder in the Leaves in 1956 – the first nude scenes in Argentinian cinema – were condemned and censored. So it is not a stretch to say that Isabel was not entirely mainstream. As the genre book Mondo Macabro on “sexploitation” films explains: “One flavour entirely absent from Argentinian screens in the 1950s was eroticism. To fill this gap, director and producer Armando Bo took a former Miss Argentina under his wing and transformed her into Isabel Sarli — the country’s first sex star. Although their films were censored to a point that was almost surreal, ignored by critics and roundly attacked by the country’s middle classes, the Sarli-Bo duo changed Argentinian cinema forever.” Sounds like porn to us…. If you’re into retro porn, take a look at a collection of her scenes in the video.
Who knows, perhaps one day we’ll see Lisa Ann appointed to the National Endowments for the Arts. Maybe her endowments will too become a “true representative of national culture.”
