The Dominican actress admits she was completely humbled and floored when she discovered she was this year's recipient and she confesses the gala at the W Hollywood Hotel in Los Angeles on 27 June (15) is an event she's unprepared for.

She tells the Latin Post, "It makes my stomach get full of butterflies because... I don't feel entitled, and at times I feel like, 'Why am I getting this?' Sometimes I feel like I don't deserve what I am getting.

"It's an honour to be acknowledged, especially to be acknowledged from your own people. I try my hardest to work hard and represent my Latino culture, to be the best at whatever I put my mind to, and, to be rewarded at this point in my career, it's a an honour. I am humbled by it and I am so thankful for it."

Raquel Welch Broke Her Foot On Christmas Day


Raquel Welch

Ageing beauty Raquel Welch spent the early part of 2012 hobbling around film sets after refusing to rest her broken left foot.

The One Million Years B.C. star tells WENN she fell down a flight of stairs on Christmas Day (25Dec11), but refused to let the accident stall her work commitments.

She explains, "I get injured doing everything. Christmas Day I came home from dinner and I fell down the stairs and broke my left foot. It was horrible because all I could think of, being an actress, while I was falling was, 'My God, I've got a shoot next week and I won't be able to wear those high heels.'

"They (doctors) wanted to put me in a wheelchair and I said, 'No you won't. I'll figure it out!'"

Raquel Welch Urges Stars To Hit The Beach: 'Sunshine Is Good For You'


Raquel Welch

Movie sex symbol Raquel Welch has broken Hollywood's golden sun-tanning rule by urging women to embrace bronzing.

The One Million Years B.C. star is famous for her sun-kissed complexion and she insists a few rays on the beach are good for you.

While many stars opt for fake tans and warn of skin damage from too much sunshine, Welch says, "When you have Latina blood you don't burn like white people, so to speak."

The actress admits her Bolivian father was "very sensitive" when it came to protecting his daughter from too much sun, insisting she wear a hat at the beach, but Welch was too cool to pay attention.

Raquel Welch: 'I Think Mae West Was A Man'


Raquel Welch Mae West

Movie beauty Raquel Welch still has her suspicions that Mae West was a male drag queen after getting up close and personal to the silver screen icon during one of her final films, Myra Breckinridge.

The two goddesses spent a lot of time in each other's company on the set of the 1970 film - and Welch admits she started to think there was something more than a little odd about her co-star.

During a Raquel Welch film retrospective in New York at the weekend (11-12Feb12), the still-stunning actress explained, "She never worked before 5pm and... she also never moved by herself, so the limo that took her to the studio, to her dressing room, also brought her onto the set. So they had to open the huge door where they load in scenery. She was kind of like a piece of scenery!

"When I went over to say hello to her (one day) I said, 'Hi, it's Raquel, remember?' She sort of extended her hand to me and I went to kiss the ring and one false fingernail painted silver fell to the floor. I looked at the hand and I thought, 'Oh, I'm getting a vibe'. I really think she's a man!

Ben Hur Hunk Stephen Boyd Hinted At Homosexuality To Smitten Raquel Welch


Raquel Welch Stephen Boyd

Veteran sex symbol Raquel Welch is convinced late movie hunk Stephen Boyd was gay, revealing he hinted he preferred the company of men in a bid to stop his Fantastic Voyage co-star wasting her energy by lusting after him.

Welch admits she had a huge crush on the Ben Hur star, who was among the actors in the running to play James Bond in Dr. No, and she did everything in her power to seduce him.

But while walking her back to her hotel room in New York after a dinner with movie mogul Darryl Zanuck, the Irishman made it clear he wasn't interested in a romance.

Speaking at a weekend (11-12Feb12) film retrospective at New York's Lincoln Center Walter Reade Theater, the movie beauty said, "He was so hot with his cleft chin and he was so not interested in me. I tried to seduce him one time. I was so smitten with him and I was so excited every time I would come on the set I would see Stephen, and think, 'Oh God, he's so cute.' He had what sounded like a Welsh (sic) brogue that was so charming.

Now Welch insists she is looking to date someone closer to her own age.
