Gina Rodriguez: ‘I’m not less than because I’m 10, 15, 20 pounds more’

The details from Self Magazine:

On struggling with hypothyroidism:

For years after being diagnosed with hypothyroidism at 19 and Hashimoto’s at 26, and putting on weight that wouldn’t budge, Rodriguez preferred to deny what she was going through rather than focus her efforts on doing whatever she could to feel better. “To the core of my being, I know what it’s like to feel like there is no way I can win this, so where do I even begin,” she reflects. “[Hashimoto’s] affects so many aspects of your life. I’ve had it for so many years…that rebellion of not taking care of myself can’t exist anymore.”

On her weight:

“I’m OK in both of those,” she says. “I’m not less than because I’m 10, 15, 20 pounds more.” On the flip side, she knows it’s not inherently better—that she’s not inherently better—when she happens to weigh less, and that her handling of weight doesn’t say anything about her other than that she’s human.

Gina Rodriguez: “If you love yourself there’s absolutely no opportunity to hate anybody else”

On the fact that haters do not love themselves:

People will say you are not attractive. People will say you are not skinny enough, not tall enough, not thick enough, not curvy enough, not white enough, not brown enough, not this enough. Well, I really hope you don’t feel that way about yourself, because then we’re all screwed. If you love yourself there’s absolutely no opportunity to hate anybody else. You actually can’t. If you are happy, you’re not going to go around being like, “You suck. You’re terrible. F*** you.” You don’t do that. If you love yourself, you know nothing but love.

… says Gina.

Gina Rodriguez: “I was being told there was no way I could because they are way skinnier”

FFN_vcv_52035699 - Gina Rodriguez: "I was being told there was no way I could because they are way skinnier"

On being diagnosed with a thyroid disease which made it hard for her to maintain her weight:

It began when I was 19 years old and I got fired, and I realized keeping my weight down was going to be much more difficult. It was difficult for me to stay in the comfortable zone of my weight. I was very tired. My fatigue was through the roof. When everyone else was cold, I was sweating bullets.

On trying to make it in Hollywood in a sea of skinny actresses:

I was like, ‘Okay I want to be an actor. I want to be a leading lady.’ But now I am being told there is no way I can because they are way skinnier, which was very destructive to me because I felt like I was getting curvy. For many years I had a daily conversation with myself about how I was going to help make that change. Because there is no way in this world things are only allotted to certain people because of their figure. There is no way that should be possible. There is no way that’s fair. There is no way that kind of limitation is going to help those that don’t fit into that box.

On fighting her demon:

‘Oh you look fat. Oh God the pimple! Oh my God that skin. Oh my God no one is going to love me.’ Who is that voice? I started to realize that little demon that was inside of me, and I was going to find my unicorn and I was going to let them have a conversation because that unicorn was the one that was like, ‘No, no, no. It’s just a freaking pimple. It’s just five pimples. They will go away eventually. It’s okay. Look at that smile though. Alright, so you’re curvier today. Yeah let’s work those curves.’ Recognize the voice that comes in but wants to tear down the beautiful amazing human being that you are. You know what? You are the most beautiful human being on this planet. Compared to no one. You hear what I’m saying? You are the most beautiful you. You are the best version of yourself. And when that demon comes in and says your thighs are thick, you say, ‘You know what demon? Yes they are and I am going to work them. I am going to rock the s–t out of my thick thighs and I am rocking this whole damn city with my thick thighs loving them.’

… says 31 year-old Gina.

On her favorite type of exercise:

I feel like boxing is very much like acting, except you’re just fighting yourself. You’re not allowing yourself to be defeated, you’re getting up after you’ve been knocked down, and you have to believe that you can win.

On not fitting into the ‘super skinny’ Hollywood norm:

I’m trying to use my social media as a way to communicate that I’m flawed and that I’m okay with it…It’s a very strange feeling to be okay with a little cellulite or a little extra anything. I don’t look at it and feel terrified anymore, and my confidence changed because of that. I carry myself differently.

… says 31 year-old Gina in Women’s Health.

On the ever-present showbiz pressure to stay thin:

‘Of course I’ve fallen into the pressure, 100% I’ve fallen into the culture. If you look like the swimsuit model then everyone’s gonna want you and the money’s going to flow through and everything’s going to be grand and dandy. That’s bulls**t. You go to television and film and it does add 10lbs. I don’t look like a skinny mini and that’s OK too. That is beautiful also’
