All of us Blogamole fans are well-versed in the talents of William Levy. For years, we’ve been following his telenovela characters and all of the chisme hookups happening in his personal life. But now, it looks like the rest of the world is getting a taste of the Cuban-American hunk too, thanks to a high-profile appearance in Jennifer Lopez’ sexy new video.
Since it’s debut on Monday, J. Lo’s “I’m Into You” has gotten tons of exposure. Currently hitting over 5.5 million views on YouTube, it’s got lavish sets, intricate costumes, and most importantly, a lot of Levy! Looking at the clip, it’s safe to say that shirtless William has contributed quite a bit to its ongoing success.
And Levy seems to be basking in all of the bare-chested glory. He popped in on EXTRA this week (much to the surprise of his famous co-star) and got himself on the coveted 50 Most Beautiful list from People en Español.
But could this new found attention be going to William’s head? According to TV y Novelas, the answer may be yes. News has recently surfaced about Levy’s “diva-esque” behavior behind-the-scenes of Televisa’s soap, Triunfo del Amor.
There have been reports about him arriving late on set, insisting on using a double for important scenes, and angering producers with outrageous demands. Not only that, rumors are circulating about a bitter feud between William and his co-star Maite Perroni.
It’s obvious that Levy has been working hard to get to this stage in his career (he’s been a novela regular since 2005) and we’d hate to see his rep get tarnished before he hits the big time. If he can at least stay on J. Lo’s good side, that would be a very positive thing. Particularly since she may be on the lookout for a hunky host for her new U.S. reality series.
