Gina Rodriguez Shows Off Her Shaved Head & Talks Politics With Latina — 'A Lot Of Hate Comes From Fans When You Voice Your Opinion'
Gina Rodriguez gets political!
While flaunting her shaved head (BTW, it looks amazing!) on the cover of Latina magazine's October issue, the Jane the Virgin star also talks politics and the influence of Hollywood.
And she's not afraid to tell it like it is:
"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!
