Smartasses Magazine Top 100 - Female EmpowermentNaya Rivera Bio – Smartasses Magazine Naya Marie Rivera (born January 12, 1987) is an American actress and singer. Rivera was born and raised in Valencia, California, and has lived in or around Los Angeles for most of her life. She is of Puerto Rican, African American, and German descent. Her parents are Yolanda, a former model, and George Rivera. Her younger brother is NFL tight end Mychal Rivera, and her younger sister is runway model Nickayla Rivera. In 2008, Rivera completed an 8-week screenwriting workshop at the New York Film Academy. She married actor Ryan Dorsey in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, on July 19, 2014.

Rivera appeared in commercials for Kmart as a baby, but her first significant acting job was at age four when she appeared as Hillary Winston in The Royal Family in 1991. She received a Young Artist Award nomination for her performance. Between 1992 and 2002, Rivera had small roles in The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, Family Matters, Live Shot, Baywatch, Smart Guy, The Jersey, House Blend, Even Stevens and The Master of Disguise. She was later featured in episodes of 8 Simple Rules and CSI: Miami. In between auditions and roles, Rivera worked jobs as a telemarketer, a nanny and a greeter at an Abercrombie & Fitch store. In 2009, she was cast opposite Melissa Benoist as Santana Lopez, a high school cheerleader, on FOX’s musical comedy series Glee. As a result, in July 2011, Rivera was nominated for two ALMA Awards, in the categories of Favorite Female Music Artist and Favorite TV Actress – Leading Role in a Comedy. Her debut feature film, At the Devil’s Door, premiered at the South by Southwest Film Festival in Austin, Texas on March 9, 2014. In 2015, Rivera portrayed the recurring role of Blanca Alvarez in the third season of Lifetime’s drama series Devious Maids. She also starred in an M&M’s commercial that aired during Super Bowl XLVII on February 3, 2013, as the girl that “Red” is referring to, and who is essentially trying to eat him, with a cover of Meat Loaf’s I’d Do Anything for Love.

In May 2011, it was announced that Rivera had signed a deal with Columbia Records to produce a solo album. Her debut single Sorry, featuring rapper Big Sean, was released as a digital download on September 17, 2013. On May 1, 2014, it was reported that Columbia had dropped her because her debut single had underperformed. Rivera released a memoir titled Sorry Not Sorry: Dreams, Mistakes, and Growing Up in spring 2016.

At eight or nine months old, Rivera began to be represented by the same talent agent as her mother, who had moved to Los Angeles to pursue modelling. During her appearance as a guest host on The View on January 14, 2015, she alluded to her possible bisexuality. Rivera dedicates her time to various charitable organizations, including GLAAD, The Trevor Project, Stand Up to Cancer, The Elephant Project and The Sunshine Foundation.

Why we think she’s hot:

Naya Rivera has a deep, dark brown set of eyes and a marvelously milky skin, that can cause vertigo for even the staunchest of male equilibriums. As the evil-incarnate WMHS cheerleader Santana Lopez on the hit FOX show Glee, Naya set the bar stratospherically high for selfish, manipulative, pretty-girls all around the globe. We think she has a look that blends the best of that which made both Justine Bateman and Barbara Carrera sex symbols in the 1980’s, but with her own little playful-personality twist to the elixir- and we love every minute of it.
