Spanish stunner Claudia Bassols exploded onto our hotness radar as Rob “You can do it!” Schneider’s wife on ¡Rob! Now she’s taking her talents—which are indeed sizable—to the big screen. ¡Ay Caramba!

¡Rob! has quite the comedic cast. Is it total insanity on the set?
It’s amazing. Rob is totally fearless, and I’m obsessed with Cheech Marin. There’s an idea that a lot of comedians actually have dark personas, but none of this cast is like that.
Is Spanish sexier than English?
I speak six languages, and Swedish has to be my favorite. But in terms of dating, I don’t discriminate. Well, I don’t like the bad boy; that gets old quick.
What about a big boy? It seemed that Mario Batali was quite taken with you on his show Spain…On the Road Again.
Mario is like the MacGyver of food, and a guy making dinner for you is always romantic.
Do you cook a lot?
Truthfully, I’m more of a fan. I’m giving myself 10 years to become a great chef.
So besides eating and comedy, where do your talents lie?
I love singing. My karaoke song is “I’ll Stand by You” by the Pretenders. And I make it dramatic. Otherwise, what’s the point?
