Naya Rivera Covers 'Complex' August/September 2013

Naya Rivera Covers 'Complex' August/September 2013

Naya Rivera keeps her cards a secret in this photo from her cover feature with Complex magazine’s August/September 2013 issue.

Here’s what the 26-year-old Glee actress had to share with the mag:

On keeping her babysitting job while filming Glee: “I was still a nanny up until the third episode of season one. I didn’t work that much and I didn’t know if I would still be around.”

About her boyfriend Big Sean: “I knew songs like ‘As*’ because it was huge, but I never knew what he looked like. If I ran into him, I wouldn’t have known who he was. I was with my brother at his senior game in Tennessee and we were in his car going to get dinner. He played ‘Mula’ from Sean’s mixtape and I was like, ‘What is this song? Who is this?’ And he was like, ‘This is Big Sean.’ I said, ‘This is awesome, where do I get this?’ It took me forever to get the music from my computer to my phone. I ended up randomly meeting him. I told him that story the other day and we were still cracking up.”

On the homosexual characters on Glee:
“Having gay characters makes a difference, especially when you are a teenager and you need people to look up to. Your world feels so small. The tiniest thing can make you think, ‘I’m gonna die!’ I’m glad Glee is around for people dealing with something that big in such a small world. It’s important.”

    I hope than when Ben hires a Latina he gets the real thing a Castilian with the pale skin, unpermed straight hair and hopefully, light eyes. you know one of us. Something about this Naya character that reeks of fraudulence. Hmmm, I can’t put my finger on it at the moment but I was told she was a child actress on a comedy show. I don’t recall any Latina child actresses on a sitcom from years ago so I will do research.

    @CastilianGurl: “I hope than when Ben hires a Latina he gets the real thing a Castilian with the pale skin, unpermed straight hair and hopefully, light eyes.” Why are latinas so full of self-hate. Latinas exists in every hair and eye colour. So STFU. Naya looks really pretty on this cover.

  • Ascuncion

    She isn’t Hispanic anyway she is biracial nor is her culture Latino and I think she only speaks English I know she wasn’t raised in a Spanish speaking home.

  • Cordero

    @CastilianGurl: I agree with you. Latinos are descendants of European Spaniards only. the term is used incorrectly in America Latinos are not dark skin.

  • Amy

    I love this! I love the whole poker theme.

  • Amy

    lol troll.

    Btw she isn’t Latina. She’s biracial.

  • Gomez

    White Latina rocks I agree with her 100%!

  • Mark

    Damn! These look good.

  • Alexia

    Love it! Gorgeous

  • acinomx

    There are some real racist prick on here. First of all Latino nor Hispanic isn’t even a race. When people speak of Latino or Hispanic they are talking about the ones from Latin America and the Caribbeans. Spaniards do not classify themselves as Hispanic or Latino. They are European. Anyone with bloodline from said Latin America countries are in fact Latinos. That goes for the ones who you quite ignorant think aren’t Latinos simply because they have darker skin. Dumb pricks even people from Haiti are known as Latin. Yes Naya is biracial her father is PR and her mother is AA and German. Don’t down Afro-Latinos. Crack open a book for heaven sake.
