Alexa Vega — Crush of the Day

Twitter / @AlexaVega

You may not recognize today’s “Crush” at first glance, but we’re pretty sure you’ve seen her before. Actress Alexa Vega, who tweeted the steamy Instagram pic of her buxom body seen above, was the star of Robert Rodriguez’s original 2001 ‘Spy Kids’ movie. Yep, that’s right – little Carmen Cortez has blossomed into a 23-year-old super hottie.

Vega is reteaming with Rodriguez for his upcoming ‘Machete Kills,’ the follow-up to the crazy, star studded 2010 Danny Trejo vehicle ‘Machete.’ Vega will play a woman named Killjoy in the action flick, which makes us think her character is supposed to be some kind of sexy assassin, ala Angelina Jolie in ‘Wanted’ or … Angelina Jolie in ‘Mr. & Mrs. Smith.’ Vega called that hot photo she Tweeted recently a “sneak peek” at her ‘Machete Kills’ character, which has inspired us to add the flick to our must-see list.

Vega has stayed busy since her ‘Spy Kids’ days. She’s appeared in a number of film and TV projects, including the polarizing midnight movie ‘Repo! The Genetic Opera,’ the ABC Family show ‘Ruby & The Rockits,’ and the ABC sitcom ‘The Middle.’ She also reprised the role of Carmen in last year’s ‘Spy Kids 4,’ or the ‘Batman & Robin’ of the ‘Spy Kids’ franchise.

Here’s hoping ‘Machete Kills’ will turn out to be the ‘Empire Strikes Back’ of the ‘Machete’ franchise (but with more cleavage).
