Who is Cecilia Roth?

Born on August 8, 1956, Cecilia’s parents were Abrasha Rotenberg and Dina Gutkin (AKA Dina Rot). Her father, a Ukrainian Jewish man, worked as a writer, editor, and journalist, having settled in Buenos Aires, Argentina, in the 1930s. Meanwhile, Cecilia’s mother, Dina, was a singer and had spent her younger years in Argentina and Chile. Just under four months before turning 4, Cecilia became a big sister to Ariel Eduardo Rotenberg Gutkin AKA Ariel Rot.

Cecilia worked as an actress within her birth country until the year 1976, when she had to flee the Argentinian military dictatorship and decided to stay in Spain. In 1989, she got married to Gonzalo Gil and was indeed still married when she first met Fito in Uruguay in 1991. Eight months after meeting the rock artist, Cecilia divorced her first husband in 1992 and started a relationship with Fito. On December 23, 1999, Cecilia and Fito got married at a Civil registry and celebrated the occasion by throwing an intimate party with just their loved ones.

Prior to their wedding, they had adopted a son named Martín Páez. However, their relationship soon started to fizzle, and they were divorced in 2001. As for her acting credentials, Cecilia’s first film was in 1976 when she took part in ‘No Toquen a la Mena.” She went on to star in ‘Las Verdes Praderas,’ ‘Arrebato,’ ‘Laberinto de Pasiones,’ ‘Un Lugar en el Mundo,’ and ‘Martín (Hache).’ However, her most memorable movie is perhaps ‘Todo Sobre mi Madre,’ AKA ‘All About My Mother,’ which helped the director Pedro Almodóvar earn an Oscar in 2000 for Best Foreign Language Film.
