America Ferrera Likes to Be Ugly

America Ferrera stopped by TRL to promote Ugly Betty. We love the t-shirt she was wearing. Most people get all dolled up in their trendiest look to appear on TRL but not America. She wants to remind people to Be Ugly. America is having a ball playing the fashion challenged, but sweet-hearted Betty. And while she doesn't get noticed much without her costume on, she does have a blast playing Betty in real life too. Here's more:

"People give me looks and think, 'Do I know you from high school?' They don't know exactly where to place me but they recognize me," she said. "But I went to vote with my glasses and braces at my lunch break and they're like, 'Oh, my God, ugly Betty is voting.' That created a little stir."

Ferrera was pleased to see her character become a popular costume on Halloween.

"That was really fun to see little girls and old men dressing up as 'ugly Betty,'" she said.

It's obvious that she's not the only one who likes to play Betty. Who knew that being ugly would ever be so fashionable? For more pics just

I'd really like to know how you people can judge her "health" by her weight? Just because someone loses weight that is not an indication of their health. Many women have "lost weight" and dropped dead because of it. In life there is this sick little game that we all know. To play by the rules you lose as much weight as possible & say "it's for my health." It's actually for some sick head game that certain people thrust on others.

She is far from ugly. She is a cute girl. I really enjoy Ugly Betty. It is very different from other shows and she is a good role model. It is better to be beautiful on the inside instead of the outside.

I love her and the show! She has lost a lot of weight since Real Women Have Curves, but she looks healthy right now. As long as she doesn't get much smaller I think it's a healthy choice.

katie225 katie225 9 years
she's lost weight, that's the first thing i thought when i saw these pics. but you know what, as long as she's healthy, i don't care. it's unhealthy to be fat, and it's unhealthy to be super skinny. as long as she's eating right and exercising regularly without going overboard, i say good for her!
