Gina Rodriguez Covers 'Glam Belleza Latina' & Talks Embracing Natural Beauty

Gina Rodriguez rides her bike to the set of Deepwater Horizon in New Orleans on Monday afternoon (June 8).

The 30-year-old Jane The Virgin actress covers the summer 2015 issue of Glam Belleza Latina. Check out what she had to share:

On her Golden Globe win: “Obviously the win was fantastic, but the nomination itself was the win. I want to be acknowledged for what I do. For people to stop and say, ‘She can act her ass off. I want to work with her.’ That way I can tell more stories. And I can open up more doors. And God willing, I’ll get to a place where I can executive-produce shows and I can put other people on.”

On embracing natural beauty: “I still embrace the values that I was raised with. When people post pictures of me on social media looking crazy, in midspeech, I can still see beauty in those pictures. I’m real and I’m not put-together all the time. Like, that is just the truth. And to live up to that is just too much. It’s not sustainable at all.”

On shedding the light on the Latino community: “I want to change the idea of minorities in the media. Or contribute to that movement—I’m not single-handedly doing it. Growing up, I never saw my home life reflected on-screen, and that made me feel a certain way about myself. It’s not only about my ethnicity; it made me feel a certain way about my beauty. Not seeing a woman like me as a lead made me feel like I’d never be skinny enough, I’d never be pretty enough. I want to give young girls, like my niece, the tools to see a billboard and think, That [non-Latina] girl is beautiful, but that’s not the only form of beauty. Jane’s story is about a beautiful, normal girl. We don’t talk about her weight or her looks.”
