Mini Bio (1)

Very handsome and muscular Mexican leading man of Spanish origin, on-screen from the mid-1960s. Ironically, in his debut film he played a masked wrestler and his face was never shown. Rivero soon became a sex symbol and a major box-office star, and was called by Hollywood to star with John Wayne in Howard Hawks's Rio Lobo (1970). Since the 1980s he has worked only occasionally in Mexican films and soap operas -- he has lived in Southern California for more than a decade -- but shows up in international productions, sometimes billed as "George Rivero."

Personal Quotes (2)

My father was from Barcelona, Spain and he used to say, "Jorge, in life, you have to be a good bullfighter. You cannot stand in front of the bull, because he'll run you over. What you do is get on the side and let the bull pass over." And so it has worked for me in my life.
You know what happens, usually what I do when I start working on a movie is I adapt myself, like the chameleon. I'm in this movie, I'm with the director, maybe the director is a very special guy, or he has a bad character, or whatever -- it depends on how he is -- and that's the way I treat him. If he has a bad character, I kinda stay away and then slowly I start making a friendship with him. And at the end of the movie, usually I'm okay.
