Sexy Daisy Fuentes has been named Fitness magazine's first ever Mind, Body, Spirit Superstar, and she credits Jennifer Lopez and her Latina curves for the title.
The actress/model, who is engaged to wed former Bros star Matt Goss, insists she never stood a chance of becoming a cover girl on mainstream magazines until Lopez persuaded editors and stylists that big bottoms and curves can be beautiful.
She tells the magazine, "It takes someone as confident as Jennifer Lopez to turn a body part that's often considered a flaw into something hot."
Fuentes uses the article accompanying her new title to reassure other women that staying fit and in shape can be really easy.
She adds, "Don't be so hard on yourself. If you don't like something about your body, change it. Eat healthy and work out."
Fuentes will feature on the cover of Fitness' September (07) issue.
Each month the magazine's editors will pick a celebrity who promotes health and body awareness for women through charity efforts. Fuentes represents Girls On The Run.
