As if that were not enough, the reporter questioned Yalitza’s foray into the film industry and called the film that launched her to fame in 2018 as “boring.”

“You can tell me that she cried very naturally, It seems to me that Yalitza Aparicio is overrated and that she is not an actress. That is my opinion and they are not going to take it away from me, and with all due respect you can tell me that I am ignorant of cinema, but boring Rome”He added.

“How good that you were where he was born, all that story that is very romantic, it is beautiful, where he was born, and we all applaud him, that the brown skin, the bronze race and united Mexico will never be defeated, the green, white and red, but What is she about as an actress? Indigenous people need a voice, support and image like Yalitza Aparicio, but I said the lady does not act. The movie Rome I thought it was a sleeping pill to go jetear, I saw her twice and both times I fell asleep ”, he remarked. The climax in Rome is when I put the car in the garage”.

The driver’s words were in contrast to his partner’s Monica Noguera, who replied: “I think, Gus, it really is the package of absolutely everything, is a Cuarón directing someone who had never acted in his life, who had no idea what world he was going to face, the whole story that is the director’s childhood, is a movie filmed in Mexico. I believe that many factors were taken and it seems to me underestimate merely mentioning whether or not he mops as a reference to his performance”.

However, the controversial journalist continued to defend his position.
