Interview: Natalie Martinez talks ‘Self/less’

We got the chance to speak with Natalie Martinez, one of the stars of the new movie Self/less. The movie primarily focuses on the theme of immortality. What if you had the opportunity to have more time on this Earth to fulfill your destiny? What if it wasn’t just through works that you could become immortal? A building, a song, a book, can all be left behind in your name, but do you actually feel immortal? Selfless gives us a glimpse of what a world looks like where humanity has a chance to answer and fulfill the question of living forever. As you can imagine, it’s messy, dangerous, and not at all a selfless act.

Watch the interview below and see Natalie Martinez talk about what drew her to the project, how she prepared for her role, what she would do if it came to choosing everlasting life, and, of course, what her favorite Cuban dish is!



Alejandra Torres is a 21 year old from Miami, Florida. She graduated from Florida International University with a degree in English Literature. She loves books, television, and movies. Some of her other favorite things include: leftovers (food—not the show), cookie dough, and her pet poodles, Benji and Bella. She hates Miami traffic but loves XM radio, so basically, it’s complicated. In a battle between contacts or trendy, oversized glasses, the latter wins because lets face it, contacts are a lot more dangerous than some people might think. Her latest binge victim was Parks & Recreation. She “literally” got through six seasons faster than the Millennium Falcon kicks into warp speed. Her favorite shows include: Game of Thrones and Pretty Little Liars—because it doesn’t matter whether a girl is from Dragonstone or Rosewood, fashion is key.
