Mexico’s Brad Pitt sacrificed a glittering Hollywood career for the peace he found in God.
They call Eduardo Verastegui the Mexican version of Brad Pitt. Once he was a Calvin Klein model who smouldered bare-chested opposite J-Lo in a music video, and starred as the lead in a Hollywood movie about a Latino love God pursued by a trio of vengeful girlfriends.
But unlike the real life Pitt, who famously rejected his Southern Baptist upbringing, Verastegui chose to sacrifice a glittering film career after rediscovering his Catholic faith. Today, the 35-year-old actor is a daily Mass-goer, committed to abstaining from sex before marriage, who flies to Darfur to help the starving, provides financial help for women considering abortions and organizes house-building missions in Mexico.
