We all remember him from countless telenovelas, many magazine covers and a promising Hollywood crossover that would've made William Levy look like an ugly duckling. One look at Jennifer Lopez's "Ain't It Funny" video and we were in love. Watching "Chasing Papi" on repeat and we were sure that Eduardo Verástegui was the man of our dreams. So what happened to this talented actor, extremely sexy model and charming singer? It seems like he disappeared from the face of the earth and no one seems to know where he went after his movie "Bella," in 2006. Eduardo has actually been on the down-low, after shooting "Chasing Papi," who many also remember as the beginning of the crossover of another Latin success, Sofia Vergara.

In 2002, before shooting "Chasing Papi," Eduardo started taking voice-coaching lessons to improve his English before his major crossover movie. His coach, Jasmine O'Donnell, was a committed Catholic who helped the actor re-discover his faith. "She would ask me a lot of questions, without judging me, like 'What's your life's purpose?' 'What motivates you to wake up every day?' 'Who do you live for and who do you die for?' 'What does God mean to you?' That helped me understand that I was full of contradictions. My faith wasn't the center of my life. Not because I didn't want it to be, but because I didn't know better," Verástegui said in a recent interview.

In the course of their conversations Verástegui re-discovered his faith and resolved to change his lifestyle. He also declared that he had decided to turn down offers to play roles in films that conflicted with his Catholic beliefs. That left him without work for many years, since he refused to play overly sexualized roles. He even admitted that he took a vow of abstinence until he finds the woman he's going to marry. "A lot of people think sex is a physical need, and that's not true. A physical need is breathing, eating. If you don't breathe or eat, you die. So far I haven't heard anyone who's died because of abstinence," he added.

"It's not that sex is something bad. I see it as something sacred, something great. And precisely, you cherish and protect it to share it with the person that's supposed to be the most important person in your life. If love isn't forever, is not love." Eduardo also explained that every day he has to fight temptation, especially in the film industry, but although it's not easy, it's achievable. Currently, the actor travels around the world supporting pro-life organizations, and he uses his likeability and persona in any production that has to do with faith and Catholicism. He confessed he prays every day and tries to follow the Ten Commandments. What do you think about Eduardo Verástegui's new life? Sound off in the comment section below!
