In the letter, Derbez congratulated Cuaron for the diversity of his film, Roma. He stated that diversity is more than the cast of a movie, or the crew, involved in the project. Diversity is about building bridges between the audience and the story on the screen, enabling the audience to view the world through a different set of eyes.
Eugenio also brings to light that many years ago he was approached by Cuaron to participate in one of the Oscar-winning director's earlier projects. Derbez turned down the offer in favor of a competing one, however, the comedian has appreciated watching his “compatriota” (fellow countrman) grow and break boundaries in the Hollywood film industry.
