Comparisons can be a funny thing—take the label hung on Canadian actress Veronika London by a national men’s magazine: “The Megan Fox of the North.” The tag now follows her everywhere, yet it’s not all that accurate. Megan Fox is sexy ‘n all, but Mexican-born Veronika is doing her own thing. You might have caught her on late-night cable in HBO’s Lingerie or Showtime’s Body Language. She’s quickly becoming a fixture of Canadian independent film: She’s in features Black Eve and Jane Doe, due out in the coming months, and has three more films—Bitter, Growing Paranoia and Burning Amber—in pre-production.

Tattoos and what they mean: I have two tattoos. A star on my left wrist, which is a reminder to stay focused. The other one is on my lower back. It looks like five stars spread out. There is no actual meaning to this tattoo—it was actually supposed to be some funky design, but I walked out after the initial lining was done. Tattoos hurt! Maybe I’ll go back later.
Sexiest woman ever: I think it’s still Angelina Jolie. There have been so many stages and layers in her life, and through it all she exudes confidence.

I will not even give you a second look if: You lose your temper easily.
Something stupid men do or say when they first meet me: I used to get really annoyed with all stupidity that men used to say or do when they first meet me, but I’ve learned to appreciate it. I mean, if I wasn’t attractive, I would yearn for all the attention I get.

The last movie that made me laugh: I can’t think of one. I don’t really watch comedy.
