"What I found was that when actors voice their opinions, it's so influential. It's almost as influential as the politics themselves. It could get very dangerous because I don't want anybody to make a decision about their future based off of my opinion. It's your future, just like it's my future but I'm one vote. I'm not all the votes. I'm not the politicians. I find that there is a lot of hate that comes from fans when you voice your opinion about a politician even though you're one vote."
She further opens up about the power of the Latino vote, urging her people to be more supportive of one another:
"Sadly our culture has been living the crab-in-the-barrel effect. We're so afraid there isn't enough room for all of us that we fight to get to the top. We don't need to do that. There's room for all of us. We're stronger in numbers. As Latinos, we put Barack in office. We could do the same in making sure that Donald Trump doesn't get in office. We are that strong."
In addition to politics, the 32-year-old touches on a variety of subjects in the interview. Read on for HIGHlights!
In the September issue of Health out this Friday, the 32-year-old opens up about her longtime battle with her weight after being diagnosed with Hashimoto's disease — an autoimmune disease that can cause an underactive thyroid.
And it's not surprising this disease posed to be even more difficult to deal with as an actress constantly in the spotlight:
"As an actress, I was like, 'Seriously?! In a world that's so vain, I have to deal with the disease that makes you not keep weight off?' But it actually became a blessing because then I got to represent not only women and Latinas, but also women who are dealing with this disease."
We love her optimism!
But that doesn't mean her dietary restrictions don't prove to be a challenge, especially at the craft services table on set (been there):
Rocking a sleek black suit, white tailored shirt, and polkadot pussy bow, G was the epitome of confidence and it totally shows in her strong stance. She completed the getup with strappy heels, a cool clutch, and metallic almond-shaped nails.
This is nothing like her usual step-and-repeat style — and we LOVE the look!
