Gina Rodriguez is on her way to being everywhere!!
And she definitely perfected the art of the smolder!
Get it, Gina!!
As for the spread, we only got a peek, but she definitely looked like she was having fun with it — though her interview had a more serious tone.
Talking about Latinos in the media and on TV, Gina shared:
"We just have to understand our collective strength. Because if Jane the Virgin does well, [Hollywood] is going to open the door for five new shows that are Latino focused. We've already seen this start to happen. Jane the Virgin got a Golden Globe, and this pilot season everybody wants a Latino lead…. The more we show them that our united front can blow something up, the more they're going to open those doors because it's no longer a risk. This isn't about racism. It's about money."
That and also more role models!! She revealed:
"Growing up, I never saw my home life reflected on-screen, and that made me feel a certain way about myself. It's not only about my ethnicity; it made me feel a certain way about my beauty. Not seeing a woman like me as a lead made me feel like I'd never be skinny enough, I'd never be pretty enough. I want to give young girls, like my niece, the tools to see a billboard and think, That [non-Latina] girl is beautiful, but that's not the only form of beauty. Jane's story is about a beautiful, normal girl. We don't talk about her weight or her looks."
Jane rocks — and obviously so does Miz Rodriguez!
We can't see what else the future has in store for the 30-year-old!
