What a transformation! Eiza Gonzalez is not the same girl she was when she started out as a young telenovela star in Mexico. The actress/singer, now 23, has come a long way since getting her big break as Lola on Lola…Erase Una Vez at 16 — and there are pictures to prove it!
The gorgeous star went mainstream this week when she was photographed partying with Liam Hemsworth a few days before his split from ex-fiancee Miley Cyrus went public. But she started her glam Hollywood makeover a long time ago.
When she was cast as the female lead in Lola…Erase Una Vez (which translates to Lola…Once Upon a Time) back in 2007, Gonzalez was a very pretty brunette with a youthful, fresh-faced look. She starred on the show as a nanny who also sings in a rock band; the series later helped launch her music career.
In 2009, one year after Lola….Erase Una Vez was canceled, she was cast in the popular telenovela Mujeres Asesinas. At the time, she was preparing to release her debut album, Contracorriente.
After Contracorriente, she starred on the show Suena Conmigo as Clara, a character who had a Hannah Montana-esque alter ego named Roxy Pop. It was around this time that she admitted during an interview with Hoy that she had gotten a nose job. There was no medical reason for the surgery, she said — she simply didn't like the way she looked.
Since then, Gonzalez has gone full-on glam. She lightened her long brunette locks to blonde, made over her wardrobe, and also appears to have lost a significant amount of weight. Now she's preparing to take Hollywood by storm — and thanks to the attention she's gotten from Liam Hemsworth, she already has a pretty good head start.
