America Ferrera is Hot Betty

America Ferrera is Hot Betty

Another larger-than-life celebrity hits the cover of W Magazine! In their May 2007 issue, Ugly Betty actress America Ferrera graces the cover. Here’s a great excerpt about her boyfriend from college, Ryan Piers Williams:

It was at USC that Ferrera met her now boyfriend, Ryan Piers Williams. A tall, handsome, Texas-born aspiring director who currently works for Steven Soderbergh, he cast her in his student film, and the two currently live together and share a golden retriever named Buddy, whom they refer to as “our baby.” At Ferrera‘s W photo shoot, Williams sits by her side while she’s being coiffed and made up, telling her how pretty she looks and bravely revealing to the crew that he once allowed her to put mascara on his lashes. Says Ferrera, giggling, “He has the longest eyelashes, but they’re blond at the tips, and I just wanted to see what it would look like.”

As it turned out, Betty‘s immense popularity has brought an avalanche of attention to Ferrera. Now paparazzi stalkings and demands for autographs are part of her daily life. What truly baffles her are the machinations of the tabloid press. In February one weekly gossip rag ran with a story that Ferrera and Williams were engaged, giving rise to BETTY TO WED headlines all over the Internet. “It’s totally not true!” she insists of the rumor. “And his mom called me and my sisters were calling me, and I was like, ‘Are you kidding? Did you not think I would tell you first?’ And then I put out a statement that it wasn’t true, and that became a whole news story. So now it’s news when something doesn’t happen? Like, news flash: California did not get hit by a hurricane today.”

Kirsten Dunst was the April 2007 W Magazine cover girl.

    It’d be hilarious if this was all manipulation.

    1. Observe that pratically everyone is sick of thin rich “it” girls….CHECK!
    2. Manufacture chubby girl, on a “cute” show with a “positive message” ….CHECK!

    Kool-Aid drinking savages worshiping her “positive image”, and go apesh*t at any mention of negativity, especially regarding her weight.

    ANDRE… well anytime u can see a clavicle bone means u have little fat on u. Im not saying shes nicole richie, im saying she isnt the plump girl like she was when she started Betty. Same thing happened to J Hud. Once ppl take notice of u in hollywood u drop pounds like crazy it seems

    Jenny Says:

    America is FAT. Everyone tries to be so PC but let’s face it, we are nice because she is a talented actress. Let’s stop pretending to celebrate her beuaty because she is just plain FAT.

    macx Says:

    She’s Ugly and Fat, and that show SUCKS!!!! Only episode I watched for a few mintues was the one with Salma Hayek, where she takes her shirt off in the elevator. Anyone who thinks this Fat America chick is pretty is smoking crack and an alcoholic.

    ryan Says:

    america is cute and pretty..and ugly betty is a good show and people need to stop hating on girls who are curvier than nicole richie people are never happy how people look if your too skinny you have eating disorder and if your curvy they’re claiming your a obese. @macx america is NOT FAT thats is called being curvy people who have clear vision see thats she is not fat!!!

    magnus Says:

    It’s the most pedantic and low brow half wit show ever. It’s written by 8 year olds with severe learning disabilities and anyone who watches it is clinically retarded.

    I don’t care if she’s fat or if you think we should open our eyes to curves. That’s a laughable sentiment. F*ck yourself you fat hog. The only time I want to hear about this show is if a fire burns the entire cast and crew alive.

    thaigurl313 Says:

    WOW….alot of you guys are IGNORANT. i dont see why people like skinny kate moss women. but then again the same dumb ignorant people that would call someone like her fat are the same dumb ignorant people that prolly like boob implants and have low self esteem.

    as a matter of fact that’s why i’ve always loved America cuz she has the confidence to embrace every part of her. the only reason why u bash her is cuz you have your own insecurities. not cute at all

    and as for the show…well it shows just how materialistic and superficial we human have become.

    All the people calling America ugly and fat are ******* retarded. The women hating on her are jealous. I am a man and I feel that the men who are hating on her should just let their latent homosexuality come the fore. The reason these”men” like their women to look like 12 year old boys is that they really wish they were 12 year old boys.

    America is NOT beautiful. It’s not the fact that she’s ‘chubby’ that annoys me. She’s just not pretty. Not at all. I see beautiful latinas every single day, and she’s definitely not one of them.
