Furthermore, Liz also mentions that growing with a heavy physique had a lot of negative effects on her career. She said, “When you gain weight, nobody looks at you. When I got heavier–and being Hispanic on television is limiting–I played a lot of maids. I would go on the set and people would not look at me. They also tend not to hear you. You have to make them focus on you. If I really want to be heard, I have that command but a lot of heavy women don’t. When I see someone heavy working on television I say, “Oh, God, go girl. You do it.” You know, it shouldn’t stop your life.”

Liz Torres has managed to work impressively well on her weight and this has also shown its results. She looks like a completely different person now than she was before. However, we do know one thing for sure and that is, she was beautiful back then and she is beautiful even now.
