Gina Rodriguez Wants To Believe We're 'Misreading The Tone' of Deadline's Controversial Diversity Article

Gina Rodriguez strikes a pose on the red carpet while arriving at the Nuevas Latinas Living Fabulosa Event at The Times Center on Wednesday (March 25) in New York City.

At the event, Gina opened up about how she felt about Deadline‘s controversial diversity article and Shonda Rhimes‘ reaction to it.

“I’d love to believe that we’re misreading the tone of that article. I don’t think there’s anybody that reads that and agrees that anything’s being taken away from anyone,” Gina expressed (via Refinery29), speaking to the writer’s claim that agents’ white clients are missing opportunities because of an emphasis on casting minorities. “Let’s just hope the writer has the opportunity to clear up anything we’ve maybe misread as negative. I love to give people the benefit of the doubt. Nobody wants negative in their life.”

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.”

Gina Rodriguez Walked Out On Her Most Awkward Date

Gina Rodriguez shows off her beautiful smile in a feature for Glamour magazine’s April 2015 issue, which features model Natalia Vodianova on the cover!

Here’s what the 30-year-old actress had to share with the magazine:

On how she knew the role of Jane in Jane the Virgin was right for her: “I wanted a new story that was going to open up how people view Latinas and women, so I’ve passed on certain roles, which is terrifying when you don’t have money! Like Jane, and like the majority of the country, I grew up influenced by two cultures. We didn’t sit around and discuss it; it just was.”

On her first thought when her name was called at the 2015 Golden Globes: “White noise. As I lifted my head, I thought: Oh my God, you work so hard. You pray; you dream; you fail; you try again; and here it is! And holy cow, is that Oprah?”

On her most awkward date: “I had a terrible date with this super-socialite guy when I first moved to L.A.—he was so pompous. I took out my money, put it on the table, and said, ‘I’m not having a good time, so I’m going to pay for this and leave.’ I walked out thinking, Look at you, badass! Now I’m in a great relationship [with actor Henri Esteve] that is far from dramatic. Our first date was the day before the Jane audition. We talked for four hours. He was my good-luck charm.”

Jane the Virgin's Gina Rodriguez Wants to Unite Latino Viewers

Gina Rodriguez looks chic while attending the PaleyFest panel for her show Jane the Virgin on Sunday (March 15) at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood.

The 30-year-old Golden Globe-winning actress was joined by co-stars Justin Baldoni, Brett Dier, Yael Grobglas, Andrea Navado, Jamie Camil, and Ivonne Coll.

During the panel, Gina gave an inspiring speech about needing to unite the Latino community and television viewers.

“We can unite and get our viewership just like Empire — ’cause where you at, 54 million plus?” Gina said (via Variety). “The Latino community here in this country is comprised of multiple cultures… They see us as one community and we need to be one community, because we all share the same struggle. That’s what we do as human beings — we celebrate each other, we celebrate each other’s culture, we celebrate each other’s religion, but we also unite as human beings. Let’s do that, let’s use our power as women, as Latinos, as whatever subculture you identify with, and at the same time celebrate being human. That’s what [Jennie] did — she wrote a story for a human.”

FYI: Gina is wearing a A.L.C. , an Elizabeth and James skirt, Stuart Weitzman shoes, an Edie Parker clutch, Le Vian earrings, and Harry Kotler and Doves rings.
