Meet Gina Rodriguez!
The Jane The Virgin star steals the cover for the March 2015 issue of Latina, posing sexily on the mag’s wearing only chic chevron blazer. The Golden Globe winner chatted candidly with The Real‘s Adrienne Bailon about body image (particularly for a woman in Hollywood) and why she’s refused to conform to anyone else’s standards.
“It really all does stem from the self,” and when you have not accepted who you are when the images tell you that you’re not skinny enough or pretty enough, you believe it to a point of like If I change, then I’ll be able to get this. If I just lose this, then I can get something. And I just refused for that to be the reality because I will be the lead, because I fall in love in real life all the time, because this body type does real well in the real world!”
Rodriguez, who showed off her impressive rapping skills for Latina.com, also talked about why despite her vocal talents she’s decided to keep her focus solely on acting. “After ‘Filly Brown’ they wanted me to get into music, but I think I’m an okay singer; I’m not very confident in singing. I can’t mess with that, like I wouldn’t even try to.”
And yes, she say’s fans do ask if she’s really a virgin! She’s not tellin…
