There has to be something in the genes, because with a Cuban model mother and a Venezuelan actor father, it's no great surprise that Génesis Rodríguez has grown up both talented and beautiful.

Born in the U.S. in 1987, Rodríguez, who stars in upcoming Liam Neeson film Run All Night (trailer above), was destined to be an actress from a young age, starting acting and dance classes at just two-and-a-half years old.

She made her name with a series of starring roles in Spanish-languange telenovelas on American network Telemundo, before getting her big break, featuring in U.S. hit series Entourage in 2010. In 2012 she made her Hollywood debut, starring in blockbuster Man on a Ledge, and then followed it up by starring alongside Will Ferrell in the spoof comedy Casa de Mi Padre in 2012.

Since then Rodríguez has cemented her place in the film industry, starring inWhat to Expect When You're Expecting,The Last Stand,Identity Thief, and as the voice of Honey Lemon in the popular Disney animated filmBig Hero 6.

 

Away from the big screen, the Latin-American beauty has also been making a big impression with her smoking hot contributions to social media, earning more than 121,000 followers on her Instagram account. But before you dash off to check it out (which we strongly suggest you do), as is customary, here are a few of our favourite shots of the stunning Miss Rodríguez.
