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.”

Another 'Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants' Movie Could Still Happen!

This news could get a lot of fans excited for something really cool, or it might just get people’s hopes up for something that might not happen. Either way, we’re crossing our fingers because another The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants movie could still happen!

America Ferrera has previously said that a third installment for the franchise was “being written,” but that was two years ago.

Now, the actress was asked to comment on the progress of the film in an interview with E! News.

“It’s an idea and a conversation,” America said. “I think it would be amazing. The sisterhood is still well and alive. I love my girls. We’re very much a part of each other’s lives and if the movie happens it would be a great thing.”

America says she and her co-stars Blake Lively, Amber Tamblyn, and Alexis Bledel would love to be paid to hang out together on set.

“I was 20 when I met them. I am 30 now and they are still three of my best friends and supporters,” she said. “What’s wonderful about these girls in my life is, people expect girls and women to be competitive, and we made a decision to love and support each other off-screen and onscreen. We would love to get paid to hang out with each other. That would be wonderful.”

America Ferrera Talks Stepping Up & Taking Chances in Hollywood

America Ferrera takes the cover of Redbook magazine’s March 2017 issue, on newsstands February 14.

Here’s what the 32-year-old actress had to share with the mag:

On finding balance: “When I was younger, I felt like everything was make or break. In my career and my relationships, there was a right way or a wrong way—and I had to fit into the right box. I’ve let go of those narrow definitions and found a balance.”

On stepping up and taking chances in Hollywood: “We talk about a lot of things we want to see more women doing. We want more women producers, more women writers, more women directors– and you can only say that so many times before you say, ‘I’m a woman. What’s stopping me from doing this?’ I’ve had to ask myself: Why not me?”

On how there’s more to a woman’s value than her appearance: “I grew up believing a lot of things about myself that I had to unlearn– things that pertain to being a good woman, things about my weight or height… As women, you’re taught that your value is all about your appearance, not your ideas and your tenacity and your courage and your bravery and your adventurous spirit. Look, I love getting dressed up and looking beautiful. But that’s one tiny piece of me.”
