How Cute Is Her Printed Bikini?
Gina Rodriguez's Instagram is filled with photos of her beautiful engagement ring, her #MovementMonday posts celebrating minorities, pictures with her fiancé, Joe LoCicero, and some supersexy bikini snaps. While discussing Gina's partnership with Always and Feeding America for the #EndPeriodPoverty campaign, POPSUGAR spoke with the actress about how she found the confidence to start posting bikinigrams.
"I can fake confidence to the moon but I didn't start feeling truly confident in myself until I started taking care of myself," she explained. "I told one of my best friends once that I was going to go home and take a hot bath, to which she responded, 'Girl, you love yourself.' I thought, 'What an interesting thing to say' and she put that in such perspective for me because I was like, 'Oh, because when I love myself the most, I do what I want to do.'"
"That has been the power of posting those bikini pictures. Last year was the first time I ever posted a full bikini picture. I never would have done it before that," she told us. "I was training like crazy but that was false confidence. Now I'm working out and eating whatever the f*ck I want, but loving myself is what you see in that picture. You put that out there and people don't see the cellulite or the rolls, they see the confidence."
