However, the character’s popularity has lead to an original Netflix show, “Hater’s Back Off.”

Colleen created the character as a form of satire – Miranda is a bad singer, but she always posts videos of covers, and thinks she has a wonderful voice; this is meant to poke fun at the numerous people trying to become famous by posting covers online, even if they do not know how to sing.

Miranda not only sings and dances badly on her channel, but she also misinterprets critical current events when speaking about them. She collaborates with fellow YouTubers, and usually insults them throughout the video, plus gives unhelpful tutorials and rants about her ‘haters.’

Colleen also has a personal, self-titled YouTube channel, on which she posts lifestyle and comedy videos, sometimes featuring her family or friends.

She joined Edward James Olmos’ company as a producer. Her debut on television was in 2002 with the minor role of Linda in PBS’ story about a Latino family living in L.A., “American Family” starring Edward Olmos and Sonia Braga.

In 2006, she made her film debut in “Thieves and Liars,” which was Puerto Rico’s entry into the 79th Academy Awards for Best Foreign Language Film, but it didn’t make the cut.

Further success

Lymari was cast for the role of Eva, the wife of Frank Lucas played by Denzel Washington, in the crime film, “American Gangster,” in 200; the movie was said to be based on a true story about Lucas, his life of crime as a drug trafficker and a Harlem gang leader, as well as arrest by detective Richie Roberts played by Russell Crowe.

She was presented with the script and liked it, and as part of the production team made some changes to the script, to present a more realistic depiction of Latinos. It was also chosen as Puerto Rico’s entry at the 84th Academy Awards, but was disqualified because the Academy no longer accepted an entry from a US protectorate.

Other movies she has appeared of include “Light from the Darkroom” (2014), “The Blackout” (2014), and “Kreep” (2016) for which she was also the executive producer.

Love life and husband

Mia and Shia LaBeouf met while shooting together for the 2013 movie “Nymphomaniac”; it was reported that they exchanged vows in Las Vegas, Nevada on 10 October 2016, and that an Elvis impersonator officiated the wedding; it was revealed only two days later that it was a commitment ceremony, rather than a wedding. By the end of the same month, Shia made a guest appearance in the talk-show “The Ellen DeGeneres Show”, and confirmed that he and Mia had exchanged vows.

The two split and filed for divorce in September 2018, but reconciled by 2022 before the divorce was finalized, and in March 2022, Mia gave birth to their daughter.

There are no other men whom Mia’s perhaps dated, that the public knows about; she’s married to Shia LaBeouf as of April 2023, and they have a daughter together.
