William Levy says it’s OK to cry. The telenovela actor, who showed us fancy moves on Dancing with the Stars, has crossed over to the big screen in Tyler Perry’s Single Mom’s Club. “It’s a beautiful movie. Nice, heartwarming and fun too,” explains Levy from the Mandarin Oriental Miami Hotel about the romantic dramedy, about five women who bond over raising their kids alone and trying to find love in the process. Sure, cry because you may be touched by many of the relationships. Or shed a tear when you gaze upon Levy’s incredibly sculpted, bronzed body, which appears in one of the first scenes, clothed only in boxers. But back to the plot. Levy, speaking mostly English and showing some comedic chops, plays Manny, a bartender at a Mexican restaurant whose girlfriend Esperanza ( Zulay Henao, Takers) is hiding their romance because she fears it will affect her young daughter as well hinder divorce proceedings. “We had a similar background and similar upbringing,” says Levy, 33. “We were both raised by single mothers. So we had really good chemistry on that level.” The movie is not just for guys. “There are really nice moments, I think, being a father myself,” says Cuban-born Levy, who has two kids with telenovela actress and fellow Miami resident Elizabeth Gutierrez. “Guys may see situations they can relate to or understand better. Everything’s out there.”
