There are a lot of starlets in Hollywood that would cause great angst in my life if my daughters held them as a role model. America Ferrera, however, is not one of them. America continues to impress us with her on screen talent as well as her off screen grace, including her healthy outlook on life. She'll be the first to tell you that she's not looking to be a size zero, and that she thinks there's way too much attention placed on the way stars look. Here's more:
"And I think it’s hilarious when people call Jessica Alba or Eva Longoria curvy. Come on – they’re not curvy. I’m curvy!"
America said she was fortunate to nab the role of Betty, because she's not prepared to starve herself for her art. “I’ve been really lucky," she said. "The role has prepared me to be exactly who I am and not to change."
"And what is normal now? Is it normal to be size zero?"
She continued: "Starving yourself is not beautiful.”
Three words: You go girl!
