Gina Rodriguez Reveals the Types of People Who Drive Her Nuts

Gina Rodriguez Reveals the Types of People Who Drive Her Nuts

Gina Rodriguez looks graceful on the cover of Adweek‘s latest issue.

Here’s what the 30-year-old Jane the Virgin star had to share with the mag:

On aspects of the media that drive her nuts: “People who are constantly engaging in social media and don’t engage with people in real life. People who go to their phones during dinner and aren’t really present. And I, of course, get sucked into this problem as well. I’m working toward not neglecting the people around me.”

On where she sees herself in five years: “Success was when my father turned to me and told me I could be an actor. I already feel like I’ve succeeded. Ideally, the series will last three or four seasons. I’ll do films during my hiatus, making films under my company, I Can and I Will Productions. I would love to produce films and TV shows myself, to help promote stories about diverse cultures and to put on screen what we see in real life. I’m working on my book this hiatus. It’s been my goal to write an empowering book for youth. And I want to create a foundation with my two sisters to help with education and contribute to ending child hunger. So that would be success for the next four or five years.”

On her and Jane being similar: “The more I live with her, the more I want to be like her. She’s patient and understanding and forgiving. And she always gives people the benefit of the doubt. I can definitely understand Jane when she makes fearless decisions because of her convictions. I’m very similar in that respect. She turns the other cheek a lot, and I’m a little bit feistier. Her approach is just so diplomatic, and I’ve been trying to let those characteristics rub off on me.”
