America Ferrera Opens Up About Diversity In Film & TV!

America Ferrera is all smiles as she hits the red carpet at The Paley Center for Media’s Tribute To Hispanic Achievements In Television held at Cipriani Wall Street on Wednesday (May 18) in New York City.

The 32-year-old actress was joined at the event by Orange Is The New Black stars Selenis Leyva and Jackie Cruz, Alice Braga, Lana Parrilla, Today show host Natalie Morales, Gloria and Emilio Estefan, and Jimmy Smits.

America recently opened up about diversity in film and television in a brand new guest column for Deadline!

“When I look at the faces on television and compare them with film, I realize how far we’ve come on the small screen. It’s important to celebrate the success that’s been made even as we acknowledge there’s further still to travel,” America expressed. “All audiences want to see the world they live in reflected on screens big and small. At a certain point, it becomes unavoidable to notice that we’re being ignored. Young people are turning to YouTube, Snapchat and Vine to find the content that speaks to them, and you have to wonder why. Viewers don’t want to be pandered to; they just want genuine, authentic storytelling experiences. That was what first drew me to Superstore.”

FYI: America is wearing a Stella McCartney dress, Stuart Weitzman shoes, a Michael Kors clutch, and Jennifer Fisher jewelry.
