William Levy has been the body behind many a steamy novela scene, but the "Brad Pitt of Mexico" is now lending his face to a Pepsi NEXT campaign featuring new tropical flavors like Paradise Mango and Cherry Vanilla, targeting Latinos and calorie-conscious consumers.
"Mango has a past with me," says Levy of his favorite of the two new offerings. "I used to steal mangos all the time from my neighbors in Cuba." It was only a matter time before the endorsement deals starting pouring in for this Cuban-born actor who has a built up a loyal following in Latin America and most recently in the US after a stint on "Dancing with the Stars".
With the continued exposure, Levy is rapidly becoming a recognized name for housewives and abuelas alike. And he appreciates the love, regardless of where it's coming from.
Levy talks attention from the ladies:
As for his fit physique, Levy assures his time as a father keeps him in shape.
"I have two babies…that's good enough," says Levy regarding his exercise routine in addition to the gym.
For this Latino, a crossover into the English-speaking market is just the beginning. "I always dreamed to be working in the American market," says Levy as he gears up for his first leading role in a feature film shooting in September.
