Famous People - Brazil

Good topic! Lighter then the other one, or so we´d get too serious!

Brazil has some personalities.

We have a world know writer, Paulo Coelho. All the critics and intelectuals don´t like him, they say that he´s not a good writer. The discussion became even more serious when he was admited at the "Academia Brasileira de Letras", something like "Brazilian Academy of Writers".

Machado de Assis: the founder of the Academy, one of the greatest writer of all times all over the world. Everybody should ready it!

Fernando Meireles
, the director of "City of God", and "The Contant Gardner".

Walter Salles
, the director of "Central Station" and "Motorcicle Diaries"

Oh, difficult to mention just some of them without the fear of forgeting any... We have Pelé, Gisele Bünchen, Fernanda Montenegro, Fernando Henrique Cardoso (former president), Tom Jobim, Chico Buarque, Gilberto Gil, Ivan Lins, Carmen Miranda.

Oh, we also have a new "personality" - Bruna Surfistinha (ex- prostitute that is making a big sucess here, and her best-seller book is going to be release all over the world).

Oh, I´d like to say a lot about each one of them!! If you want to know a little bit more, just ask.

I just saw "motorcycle diaries" and it ranked as one of my favorites movies ever right away, I didn't know it was directed by a brazilian guy.

I don't know if Pele is more famous than Gisele, but i'm sure i rather meet her

I LOVE a brazilian singer called Marisa Monte.
She has an amazing voice and a lot of charm.
I would mention Carlos Mendes as well.
A legend!
