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.”
