America Ferrera Completes 'Sisterhood' Reunion At 'Paint It Black' After Party!

The mini Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants reunion is complete!

Amber Tamblyn, Blake Lively and Alexis Bledel all got together for the premiere of Amber‘s directorial debut Paint It Black presented by Svedka Vodka on Monday (May 15) in New York City – but unfortunately, America Ferrera missed out on the official premiere.

America, 33, made sure to meet up with her girls and show support at the after party for Paint It Black held at Fishbowl at the Dream Hotel that same evening.

Paint It Black is the story of the aftermath of Michael’s (Rhys Wakefield) death, and Josie’s (Alia Shawkat) struggle to hold onto the true world he shared with her. As Josie searches for the key to understanding his death, she finds herself both repelled and attracted to Michael’s pianist mother, Meredith (Janet McTeer), who holds Josie responsible for her son’s torment. Soon, the two women find themselves drawn into a twisted relationship reflecting equal parts distrust and blind need – Watch trailer below!

America Ferrera Feels A Strong 'Responsibility' To Speak Up Politically!

America Ferrera is opening up about making time for activism and feeling a “responsibility” to speak up about things that she cares about.

“I think that who I am is, by nature, political. I am a woman of color, a child of recently arrived immigrants,” the 33-year-old Superstore star recently expressed. “My history and my identity is deeply wrapped up in the issues that are so important right now in our national debate and have always been a part of my career whether I wanted them to be or not.”

“I think that when it comes to identity and representing more than just myself, that’s something that I couldn’t escape even if I wanted to, and I’ve chosen not to try to escape it,” America continued. “It brings me an enormous amount of joy to know that work that I do and the characters I bring to life are representative of so many others. I am, yes, an actress, but I’m also so many other things. I’m a citizen of this world and a citizen of this country and a proud patriotic American. I feel strongly that we all have a responsibility to speak up about things that we care about.”

Pictured: America spotted making her way inside the Ed Sullivan Theater to promote Superstore on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Wednesday (April 26) in New York City.

Lena Dunham & Jenni Konner Announce 'Lenny Letter' Feminist Tour - See The Dates Here!
