We love discovering which celebrities are Latinx. It always fills us with pride as they often serve as inspiration that we too can achieve greatness. People like Sonia Sotomayor, Eva Longoria, Shakira, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and Lin-Manuel Miranda are among some of the well-known Latinos who are very much loved and admired. But there are so many more notable Latinxs who we might not even know are Latinx! Those who don’t have Latino last names, or haven’t spoken publicly about their heritage, but who are in fact, Latino, and who have achieved things we should all be proud of.
Let’s take a look at 30 such celebrities who you may not have known are Latinx. We will reveal where their Latinx ancestry comes from, as well as some of their notable achievements and accomplishments. There are many people here you will recognize, and some you may not. This is definitely a list we can grow, as there are so many notable Latinos, aside from the many popular ones we know (especially from decades ago, when it was taboo to be a big star and also be Latinx).
