Gina Rodriguez: “I am constantly told, ‘You’re not skinny, tall or ethnic enough'”

FFN_f_51681394 - Gina Rodriguez: "I am constantly told, ‘You’re not skinny, tall or ethnic enough'"

On being told she doesn’t fit the Hollywood mold:

“I always knew I’d have a different journey because I didn’t look like the stereotypical leading lady or the supersexy Latina. But my parents encouraged my sisters and me to have confidence in who we are. So, working in an industry where I am constantly told, ‘You’re not skinny, tall or ethnic enough,’ I’d be like, ‘Maybe I’m not skinny enough for this role, but I do just fine in real life.’ “[My boyfriend is] my partner in crime and super-supportive. I’m writing a book, and I started a production company, and hopefully a family will come – but there’s no rush!”

… says Jane the Virgin actress Gina.

She’s accomplished so much, she doesn’t need to be “conventionally hot” to be proud of herself and confident. I think she’s very pretty, honestly; and clearly quite smart and ambitious. Good for her.

She is very cute!

Seriously! This isn’t someone I would think would ever feel insecure about looks. But Hollywood is very shallow and very harsh, and if you don’t have the look they want, you’re not going to get the job, no matter how talented you are.

No she’s not. She won a golden globe this year for Jane the Virgin.

She does have a pretty face and also a very ‘ethnic’ look to her (not sure where that came from). Given her comments, just think how many additional roles and parts she could get with just a little weight loss. She would be absolutely stunning!

I remember when my mom used to watch ANTM with me. She was getting really pissed at the girls because they had a golden opportunity and they were still complaining. My mom used to say: if you are not happy or not ready to work harder, give your place to someone else who will be happy to work harder. She has accomplished a lot, now, if she wants to have more roles, act more latina and lose weight and wear higher heals.
