Adriana shared with Viva for their December issue her aspiration for an acting career, but she did not discount her modeling.

“I want to keep up modeling to show that women these days are ageing beautifully and you don’t need to be young to be successful.”

“That, and I would love to become an actress in the future so I will keep my fingers crossed.”
