Rita Cadillac (French dancer)

Rita Cadillac (Brazilian dancer)

Rita de Cássia Coutinho, known as Rita Cadillac (June 13 1954, Rio de Janeiro) is a Brazilian dancer and singer.

She took her stage name from Rita Cadillac, an acclaimed French dancer of the 1950s and 1960s but she claims that she was nicknamed so by Abelardo Barbosa, a TV show host that hired her for stage dancing because her buttocks were as big as Cadillac's. Considering that other dancers appearing in Barbosa's show sported nicknames linked to their stage presence or bodily gifts (like Fernanda Terremoto, whose nickname meant "earthquake") this bears some credence.

Cadillac made a brief cameo appearance as herself in the 2003 Brazilian film Carandiru. From 2004 to 2008, she appeared in six pornographic films of Brasileirinhas.
