Superstore: America Ferrera says she gets mistaken for Gina Rodriguez, is obsessed with Cate Blanchett

America Ferrera is on — or rather, in — Cloud Nine these days: The 31-year-old Ugly Betty alum has returned to TV in the NBC comedy Superstore as Amy, a seen-it-all floor supervisor toiling in a Walmart-like emporium named Cloud 9. “It feels like a heightened, bright world which you can’t get away from when you’re setting it in a big box store,” she says of the series (which was sneak-previewed on Nov. 30 and premieres in its regular time slot Monday at 8 p.m.). “Everyone and anybody has walked into one of these stores, so the possibilities for who walks in and what happens in the store are endless.” Her character, meanwhile, is not exactly full of wonder and possibility. “Amy is in a lot of ways the opposite of Betty,” she notes. “She’s had hard circumstances, to the point where she’s not really expecting anything wonderful to happen on a day-to-day basis or really in her life. It’s a complete 180 from the go-get-’em optimism of Betty.” Read on to see how a series of best-worst-most-least questions register with Ferrera.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: What question do people ask you the most?

AMERICA FERRERA: “Is America your real name?” That’s the only name I have, so yes. It’s my only-iest name.

What was your weirdest fan encounter?

A fan that tattooed my initials on them felt very weird. It creeped me out a little. I just said, “Oh, okay! Bye!”

What is the impulse buy that you regret the most?

With my first big paycheck, I went and leased a BMW, and literally two months later I couldn’t afford to put gas in the tank. And so very quickly, I went in and exchanged it for a Toyota — and still have that Toyota, by the way.

What is the line of dialogue from a movie or TV show you quote the most?

I quote Steel Magnolias all the time. It’s the scene where she’s having a fit, and then Sally Field says, “Drink your juice, Shelby!” And I have to say it in the accent, too. My husband and I quote it to each other all the time. We always say, “Drink your juice, Shelby,” before we drink something. It doesn’t make any sense.

Who is the person you’re mistaken for the most?

These days I would have to say Gina Rodriguez. [Ed. note: The Golden Globes Twitter account made the same mistake after this interview.] It’s fun to be able to say, “Nope, sorry, not her!” and I keep walking. Weirdly, I got mistaken for Michelle Rodriguez [in the past], which doesn’t make any sense, because we couldn’t be more different. Once, I got Selena Gomez. Basically anyone who’s Latina. People just look at me and go, “I think she’s vaguely famous — she’s definitely the one famous Latina who I might know.”

What is the red carpet look you wore that you regret the most?

Anything before I had a stylist. Everything before I paid someone else to dress me. … My biggest fashion regret has something more to do with comfort. One time, I wore a jumpsuit to a premiere. When I tried it on, it fit me, and when I put it back on for the premiere, it was a little bit big up top. And a jumpsuit has to be held up by something. I went ahead and wore it anyway, and the whole time, I’m breathing out — doing the opposite of sucking it in — so that my jumpsuit does not flip down and expose my breasts. That was a very stress-inducing fashion decision. So I do regret that. Lesson learned: Wear stuff that fits you.

What kind of viral video makes you laugh the hardest?

Dogs acting like humans, anything dogs do that is vaguely like a human trait — it’s wearing glasses, or it looks like it’s reading something or watching TV. I recall one of a dog who waits until his family’s gone and then he incessantly slides down the pool slide over and over again. I feel like I could watch that forever and laugh.

Which movie makes you cry the hardest?

I remember having a headache for literally days after I watched Hotel Rwanda. Literally for days, I had a headache from how much I cried watching that movie. The truth of the movie was so devastating, and I just wasn’t expecting it. Sometimes you go in and you can keep your wall up and your guard up. I feel like I watched 12 Years a Slave but kind of with one eye closed, and I didn’t let my guard down. But there was something with Hotel Rwanda that I just got caught off-guard.

What was the worst job you ever had?

I cleaned up after my neighbor’s pet pig for probably $5 an hour, which I’m not even sure is legal. I don’t know that you can employ a 10-year-old to clean up your pet pig for less than minimum wage.

What was the most nervous you ever were for an audition?

It was a singing audition. They were going to turn In the Heights, the Broadway musical, into a movie. And then the movie fell apart. I had to sing for director Kenny Ortega and for Lin-Manuel [Miranda]. I was trembling and sweating. I was thinking, “How could I hurt myself in a way that would keep me from the audition but wouldn’t put me in the hospital?”

What was the best piece of acting advice you have received?

Just to go moment to moment and to throw away plans and expectations.

What was the toughest time you’ve had with a single line of dialogue?

Well, this was a really hard line because it was just a terrible line. It was the very first job I ever did; it was a Disney Channel movie called Gotta Kick It Up. Look it up. I played Yolanda, the chubby but enthusiastic member of the dance team who also was bad at math. And we were having a car wash to get enough money to get a bus to semifinals, and Yolanda wasn’t doing good in math class, so the coach said she could only go if she correctly tallied the earnings at the car wash. And so Yolanda’s line was as follows: “Collecting’s the easy part. It’s the counting and adding that’s tricky.” I may be misquoting Yolanda; I apologize if I am. It was probably the line I regret the most ever having to say in my career because it’s absolutely absurd.

What was the most vulnerable you ever felt during a scene?

My first feature film role was Real Women Have Curves. At 17 I had to undress, and dance, and have a good time — in my bra and underwear in front of a crew. That was incredibly scary. But by take 2, I didn’t even need the robe anymore. I’m like, ”I’m cool. Let’s just go.”

What was the role you lobbied hardest for but didn’t get?

Oh my God, that’s like, every day of my life … Oh! I remember, I was still 18, and I wanted to be on The George Lopez Show. I wanted to play his 13-year-old daughter, and I wore a sports bra to flatten my chest and everything, because I so desperately wanted to play his daughter. I didn’t get it, and that was very crushing to me.

What is your greatest weakness as an actress?

I am the worst at keeping a straight face — the worst. I break all the time. Ask anybody who’s ever acted with me. It’s terrible. And also, to the point where it’s, like, not funny anymore. Because they’re just like, “Okay, America, it’s 3 in the morning. Can you stop laughing so we can all go home?”

Which costar made you laugh the hardest?

I did just work with Ricky Gervais on his film Special Correspondents, and one of the hardest things I’ve ever had to do was act with Ricky. As previously stated, I am very bad at keeping a straight face, and he’s just so funny. And little secret: Ricky Gervais breaks up more than anybody. He laughs all the time, which is wonderful and generous, but also, he laughs on your coverage, and you’re like, “I’m glad you thought that was funny, but now you can’t use it, because you’re laughing all over it.”

Which costar taught you the most?

I got very lucky in my first feature role at 17: I was acting opposite Lupe Ontiveros, who has passed away since, and she was such a huge influence to me. She was so professional, she was so warm and respectful, and her energy just made the set an amazing place to be. I couldn’t have had a better example of how to be on a set, and how to set the tone, and how to make for a great, inviting environment, where people can do their best work. So that’s the standard that I hold for all the sets I’m on. I know that it’s possible to make it a warm, wonderful, inviting, safe place, and that’s what I carry with me onto set when I’m there.

What is the Superstore scene that you are most looking forward to people seeing?

When we were shooting the pilot, we were doing a night shoot, and we were shooting until 7 in the morning. We all got so loopy, we were singing and dancing and staging impromptu fashion shows to stay awake. So we just had this loopy, crazy night where none of us were drunk but we felt drunk because that’s how tired we were, and that real-life night shoot actually inspired an episode toward the end of the season called “All Nighter” where the employees get locked in the superstore overnight. It’s such a fun episode where all bets are off and you get to discover who these characters are after-hours; the façade of your work person starts to wear off and you just start revealing yourself to each other. I’m excited for people to see the fashion show scene that was inspired by the fashion show we put on in our night shoot during the pilot.

Who is the actor or actress you most want to work with before you retire?

At the moment, I’m obsessed with Cate Blanchett. I would love to act with her. We are costars in How to Train Your Dragon, but we don’t ever get to work together, which is so sad. I would be anything with her onscreen. I would do anything. If she’s reading this, she should know I will do whatever to act with her. She’s so alive and present in every single moment, and not for one second do you feel like she’s acting; you just feel like she’s living the character and being in the moment. The acting is undetectable, and that is so exhilarating, and I feel like it would be so intoxicating to be an actor around her.

What object have you held on to the longest?

I have a pair of pink jellies that I used to wear when I was 2 years old. When I set up my dressing-room station or a trailer, I bring along my pink jellies. They come everywhere with me. They’re fading, they’re not as pink as they used to be, and they still have a rock lodged in them that has been there since the 1980s. I used to want to get the rock out, but now I feel like the rock is a part of it.

America Ferrera, from Ugly Betty to Hot Betty

America Ferrera’s first real showbiz experience was something of a letdown. At 16, after a decade of acting in school plays and drifting off each night to Hollywood dreams, she was cast in a Disney Channel movie about a junior high school dance team with the somewhat hilarious name of Gotta Kick It Up. At first, she was thrilled. “I love to dance, so I couldn’t believe I was getting paid to just dance all day. And there were four other girls in the cast, so that was fun. And youknow the way you think when you’re a teenager: Disney Channel today, Oscars tomorrow!” she says with a laugh. But a few weeks into filming, she had what she describes as “a mini nervous breakdown.” “I just felt really empty,” she says. “I had achieved my dream, and it wasn’t totally fulfilling. I still had school problems, and I still had boy problems. My life was still my life. I guess I had been waiting to be turned into a swan.”

Seven years later, chatting over a dinner of fish cakes, fried rice and chicken curry at a Thai restaurant in New York’s SoHo, Ferrera is no longer waiting for her swan moment. That sort of magical transformation doesn’t happen in real life, she’s realized—not even in Hollywood. But about a year ago something far better occurred: She was cast as an ugly duckling, and that lovable four-eyed, brace-faced duckling has made Ferrera into a big, big star.

Betty Suarez—the lead character in television’s Ugly Betty—is a style-challenged young Latina from Queens who lands a job as assistant to the editor in chief of a fashion magazine. The show is based on a Colombian telenovela called Yo Soy Betty, la Fea, which was a cultural phenomenon in Latin America and was adapted for markets around the world—everywhere from Israel to India—before being imported to the U.S. for the fall 2006 season. American audiences fell for the series almost immediately. Drawing roughly 14 million viewers a week, the show dominates its competitive Thursday night time slot and ranks as the most watched newcomer of the season. In January Ugly Betty won the Golden Globe for best TV comedy or musical series, and Ferrera herself—who dons a wig, fake brows and snap-on faux braces for her role—walked away with the statuette for best actress, beating out such veterans as Felicity Huffman and Julia Louis-Dreyfus. Two weeks later she took home a SAG award.

According to critics and those who work with Ferrera on Ugly Betty, such accolades were well deserved. “She’s one of the most charismatic people I’ve ever met,” says Salma Hayek, an executive producer of the show. “She’s also authentic. That’s a rare characteristic nowadays, and that’s why people are falling in love with her. I knew the minute that I saw her that she was a superstar.”

Ben Silverman, one of Hayek’s fellow executive producers, agrees. “There’s no bulls— with her,” he says. “It doesn’t matter what makeup or hair or clothing she has on, she’s so real that she grabs you. She’s a very connected human being, and that really empowers her as an actor.”

What’s most interesting about America-as-Betty is the breadth of her appeal. The character has struck a chord with a remarkably diverse collection of fans— 12-year-old girls, gay men, Latinas, the fashion crowd—all of whom seem to want to adopt her as their mascot. The day after the Globes, for example, California Congresswoman Hilda Solis took to the floor of the House to, in her words, “commend America and everyone involved in Ugly Betty for helping to break down stereotypes and provide a role model for young Latinas.” A few months later, Out magazine put the cast on its cover under a headline that read, HOW UGLY BETTY BECAME THE GAYEST, BEST SHOW ON TV. In the accompanying story, Ferrera recounted the surreal experience of attending the West Hollywood Halloween parade—a big night for L.A.’s gay community—and seeing scores of guys dressed up as Betty. “Anyone who’s ever felt like an outsider can see themselves in her and feel represented,” she says. “And who hasn’t, at some point in their life, felt like they didn’t belong?”

As the sixth and youngest child of Honduran immigrants, Ferrera says she had plenty of fish-out-of-water moments growing up in the predominantly Caucasian community of Woodland Hills, California. “As early as second grade I remember feeling really different and isolated,” she says. “I had the hugest crush on a boy, and my best friend had a crush on him too. One day he said to me, ‘I like your best friend more because she’s paler and she has freckles.’ And it was right then that I began to feel like, Oh wow, I’m different.” At the same time, she says, she never felt like she fit in with the Latino community. “I mean, I grew up in the Valley,” she says. “All my friends were white Jewish kids. So the Latino kids thought I was this white girl.”

Ferrera’s parents divorced when she was seven, and her father returned to Honduras, leaving her mother, a director of housekeeping for a Hilton hotel, to raise their son and five daughters on her own. Ferrera, who was named for her mother, says that her parents never encouraged her showbiz dreams. “Acting was not something that they came to this country to have me do,” she explains. Still, she fell in love with the spotlight early and, despite her best efforts, was never able to shake the acting bug. “For a time I thought I could be a lawyer,” she says. “As a kid I even went to law camp at UCLA. They had us watch My Cousin Vinny, which was great. But then we went to the courthouse, and we had to do these mock trials, and once I saw what it really meant to be a lawyer, I realized that it wasn’t for me. I thought it was like in the movies, like, ‘You can’t handle the truth!’ That kind of thing.”

Luckily, a fallback career in the law was never necessary. At 17, after wrapping Gotta Kick It Up, Ferrera landed the role of Ana Garcia—a brainy Mexican-American teenager with a manipulative, weight-obsessed mother—in the 2002 film Real Women Have Curves. The movie won the Audience Award at Sundance, and Ferrera herself was awarded a Special Jury Prize for acting.

At that point a less grounded 18-year-old would probably have played hard at the Hollywood fame game, doing her best to be seen on the scene and lining up a slew of projects before the buzz could fade. But Ferrera, who graduated from El Camino Real High School with a 4.3 GPA, instead enrolled at the University of Southern California, where she’s a semester away from her degree in international relations. “Acting is something I knew I wanted to do long term,” she says. “But not going to college was not an option. I think it probably helped me as an actress as well, because actresses need real-life experiences to draw from.” Though she took a break this past year to focus on Ugly Betty, she plans to start up again soon. “Once doing the show becomes more routine, I hope to fit in a class at a time and just slowly work toward my degree. I’ve come too far to quit one semester before graduation.”

It was at USC that Ferrera met her now boyfriend, Ryan Piers Williams. A tall, handsome, Texas-born aspiring director who currently works for Steven Soderbergh, he cast her in his student film, and the two currently live together and share a golden retriever named Buddy, whom they refer to as “our baby.” At Ferrera’s W photo shoot, Williams sits by her side while she’s being coiffed and made up, telling her how pretty she looks and bravely revealing to the crew that he once allowed her to put mascara on his lashes. Says Ferrera, giggling, “He has the longest eyelashes, but they’re blond at the tips, and I just wanted to see what it would look like.”

College, according to Ferrera, also served to help her focus on her career, ensuring that she signed on only for projects that she really wanted to do: movies that ranged from the well-received indie How the Garcia Girls Spent Their Summer to the feel-good teen chick flick Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants. She was living in New York, acting in an Off Broadway play and getting a few electives out of the way by taking classes at New York University when Hayek—whom she’d met in 2002, backstage at the Oprah show while promoting Real Women Have Curves—called her about the role of Betty. “Honestly I never saw myself doing TV,” says Ferrera, “but Salma was so convincing. Salma is the kind of person who could sell you, like, a used stereo. She promised me that it would be done in the right way, and I just trusted her.”

As it turned out, Betty’s immense popularity has brought an avalanche of attention to Ferrera. Now paparazzi stalkings and demands for autographs are part of her daily life. What truly baffles her are the machinations of the tabloid press. In February one weekly gossip rag ran with a story that Ferrera and Williams were engaged, giving rise to BETTY TO WED headlines all over the Internet. “It’s totally not true!” she insists of the rumor. “And his mom called me and my sisters were calling me, and I was like, ‘Are you kidding? Did you not think I would tell you first?’ And then I put out a statement that it wasn’t true, and that became a whole news story. So now it’s news when something doesn’t happen? Like, news flash: California did not get hit by a hurricane today.”

There’s also the near constant reporting on her weight. And in that department it seems she can’t win. On the one hand, reporters seem to enjoy describing her with unflattering terms like “lumpy.” On the other, several Internet gossip sites have criticized her for looking less zaftig in recent months, implying that the actress lauded for promoting realistic body images had officially gone Hollywood. “I mean, of course I want to be at a weight where I’m happy,” says Ferrera, who in person is neither lumpy nor emaciated but a healthy-looking, average-size woman. “There are times when I go to the gym and really try, and there are times when I just don’t. I gain a pound; I lose a pound. But I think I’ve developed a really good sense of when I’m doing something for myself as opposed to when I’m doing something because of other people’s expectations of me. And honestly, even if I wanted to be anorexic, I just don’t have what it takes. After four hours of being anorexic, I’d be like, ‘It’s been four whole hours! Feed me!’ “

Psychologically it helps that she hasn’t had much time to monitor her press coverage. Her schedule at Ugly Betty is grueling, with workdays that are 12 hours long at the beginning of the week and stretch into the wee hours of the morning as Friday approaches. “Basically we’re making a movie every eight days,” says Ferrera, who insists that she adores every minute of it. “Last week it was only Tuesday and we were already there so late. I had to lead the crew in a cheer of ‘I love my job! I love my job!’ “

“We have her working 24 hours a day,” concurs Silverman, who points out that such a schedule can be good for a 23-year-old actress, considering the antics of today’s young Hollywood types. “I mean, we have her working so damn hard, all she probably wants to do at the end of the day is collapse in a ball.” But even if she had the time, one gets the feeling that hobnobbing with Paris and Lindsay would be very low on Ferrera’s to-do list. “Let’s just say you’re not going to see me at the PlayStation launch party,” she says with a smirk. (Indeed, after the interview she heads not for Bungalow 8 but the F train, which she rides to a friend’s place in Brooklyn.) As gregarious as she is, she says she has never been hypersocial. “Growing up, I never had a ton of friends. I always had two or three, but when you have four sisters and a brother all a year apart, you don’t really need anyone else to play with.”

Ferrera credits her five older siblings for the fact that she’s always felt older than her years. “I learned the naughty words before anyone else in my class,” she says, laughing. “And I think I avoided many of the pitfalls because I got to watch them live through it.” Indeed, chatting with her, it’s easy to forget that she’s only 23. Her maturity is not just a matter of her intelligence—which becomes more and more apparent as she quotes New York Times articles over dinner and discusses genetics while having her hair done pre-photo shoot—but emotional precocity as well. “Happiness is something that you have to decide to have in your life,” she says. “No amount of accolades can make you a happy person, and learning that as young as I did was a gift.” Though she sounds like a poster child for the positive psychology movement that has lately dominated the self-help realm—the Oprah-endorsed best-seller The Secret being its latest missive—Ferrera says she figured out this truism on her own, as a result of her aforementioned Gotta Kick It Up experience.

Still, despite her belief that achievement isn’t a one-way ticket to bliss, Ferrera remains a doer, and an intensely ambitious one at that. Rather than spend her summer hiatus resting up, she hopes to use the time to shoot a movie, though she’s hesitant to talk specifics since nothing is set in stone. “When there’s a film I want to do, sleep doesn’t matter,” she says. “Part of me would love to be sitting in the sun in Italy, but I’d be crazy by day four.” One would think that, considering her recent rise in profile, offers of leading-lady roles would be rolling in, but Ferrera says that isn’t the case. “When it comes to envisioning an actor in a role that they haven’t seen them in, people in this business can be a little uncreative,” she says. “No one is willing to take a gamble.” As a result, she says, she’s had to take a more proactive approach to her career: “It’s been more about developing my own material, finding roles that I would like to play and figuring out a way to get those things made.”

Her plans for the future are, in keeping with her just-make-it-happen attitude, huge: She wants a large family, and she wants to direct and produce and continue acting and maybe teach too. While keeping her natural drive in check can be a struggle—”The hardest part of this year has been learning to enjoy it,” she says. “It’s almost like a full-time job reminding myself to live in the moment and not look for more, more, more”—her recent success has only made her more likely to think big: “I see now that people who make movies, this world of creative geniuses that I grew up idolizing, are just normal people who wanted to do something and made it happen. Everything that’s happened to me in the last year has only made me feel more like a normal person, more human, but in the most beautiful way.”

America Ferrera, from Ugly Betty to Hot Betty

America Ferrera’s first real showbiz experience was something of a letdown. At 16, after a decade of acting in school plays and drifting off each night to Hollywood dreams, she was cast in a Disney Channel movie about a junior high school dance team with the somewhat hilarious name of Gotta Kick It Up. At first, she was thrilled. “I love to dance, so I couldn’t believe I was getting paid to just dance all day. And there were four other girls in the cast, so america ferrera siblings was fun. And youknow the way you think when you’re a teenager: Disney Channel today, Oscars tomorrow!” she says with a laugh. But a few weeks into filming, she had what she describes as “a mini nervous breakdown.” “I just felt really empty,” she says. “I had achieved my dream, and it wasn’t totally fulfilling. I still had school problems, and I still had boy problems. My life was still my life. I guess I had been waiting to be turned into a swan.”

Seven years later, chatting over a dinner of fish cakes, fried rice and chicken curry at a Thai restaurant in New York’s SoHo, Ferrera is no longer waiting for her swan moment. That sort of magical transformation doesn’t happen in real life, she’s realized—not even in Hollywood. But about a year ago something far better occurred: She was cast as an ugly duckling, and that lovable four-eyed, brace-faced duckling has made Ferrera into a big, big star.

Betty Suarez—the lead character in television’s Ugly Betty—is a style-challenged young Latina from Queens who lands a job as assistant to the editor in chief of a fashion magazine. The show is based on a Colombian telenovela called Yo Soy Betty, la Fea, which was a cultural phenomenon in Latin America and was adapted for markets around the world—everywhere from Israel to India—before being imported to the U.S. for the fall 2006 season. American audiences fell for the series almost immediately. Drawing roughly 14 million viewers a week, the show dominates its competitive Thursday night time slot and ranks as the most watched newcomer of the season. In January Ugly Betty won the Golden Globe for best TV comedy or musical series, and Ferrera herself—who dons a wig, fake brows and snap-on faux braces for her role—walked away with the statuette for best actress, beating out such veterans as Felicity Huffman and Julia Louis-Dreyfus. Two weeks later she took home a SAG award.

According to critics and those who work with Ferrera on Ugly Betty, such accolades were well deserved. “She’s one of the most charismatic people I’ve ever met,” says Salma Hayek, an executive producer of the show. “She’s also authentic. That’s a rare characteristic nowadays, and that’s why people are falling in love with her. I knew the minute that I saw her that she was a superstar.”

Ben Silverman, one of Hayek’s fellow executive producers, agrees. “There’s no bulls— with her,” he america ferrera siblings. “It doesn’t matter what makeup or hair or clothing she has on, she’s so real that she grabs you. She’s a very connected human being, and that really empowers her as an actor.”

What’s most interesting about America-as-Betty is the breadth of her appeal. The character has struck a chord with a remarkably diverse collection of fans— 12-year-old girls, gay men, Latinas, the fashion crowd—all of whom seem to want to adopt her as their mascot. The day after the Globes, for example, California Congresswoman Hilda Solis took to the floor of the House to, in her words, “commend America and everyone involved in Ugly Betty for helping to break down stereotypes and provide a role model for young Latinas.” A few months later, Out magazine put the cast on its cover under a headline that read, HOW UGLY BETTY BECAME THE GAYEST, BEST SHOW ON TV. In the accompanying story, Ferrera recounted the surreal experience of attending the West Hollywood Halloween parade—a big night for L.A.’s gay community—and seeing scores of guys dressed up as Betty. “Anyone who’s ever felt lane bryant comenity bank payment an outsider can see themselves in her and feel represented,” she says. “And who hasn’t, at some point in their life, felt like they didn’t belong?”

As the sixth and youngest child of Honduran immigrants, Ferrera says she had plenty https www t online de login fish-out-of-water moments growing up in the predominantly Caucasian community of Woodland Hills, California. “As early as second grade I remember feeling really different and isolated,” she says. “I had the hugest crush on a boy, and my best friend had a crush on him too. One day he said to me, ‘I like your best friend more because she’s paler and she has freckles.’ And it was right then that I began to feel like, Oh wow, I’m different.” At the same time, she says, she never felt like she fit in with the Latino community. “I mean, I grew up in the Valley,” she says. “All my friends were white Jewish kids. So the Latino kids thought I was this white girl.”

Ferrera’s parents divorced when she was seven, and her father returned to Honduras, leaving her mother, a director of housekeeping for a Hilton hotel, to raise their son and five daughters on her own. Ferrera, who was named for her mother, says that her parents never encouraged her showbiz dreams. “Acting was not something that they came to this country to have me do,” she explains. Still, she fell in love with the spotlight early and, despite her best efforts, was never able to shake the acting bug. “For a time I thought I could be a lawyer,” she says. “As a kid I even went to law camp at UCLA. They had us watch My Cousin Vinny, which was great. But then we went to the courthouse, and bangor federal credit union online had to do these mock trials, and once I saw what it really meant to be a lawyer, I realized that it wasn’t for me. I thought it was like in the movies, like, ‘You can’t handle the truth!’ That kind of thing.”

Luckily, a fallback career in the law was never necessary. At 17, after wrapping Gotta Kick It Up, Ferrera landed the role of Ana Garcia—a brainy Mexican-American teenager with a manipulative, weight-obsessed mother—in the 2002 film Real Women Have Curves. The movie won the Audience Award at Sundance, and Ferrera herself was awarded a Special Jury Prize for acting.

At that point a less grounded 18-year-old would probably have played hard at the Hollywood fame game, doing her best to be seen on the scene and lining up a slew of projects before the buzz could fade. But Ferrera, who graduated from El Camino Real High School with a 4.3 GPA, instead enrolled at the University of Southern California, where she’s a semester away from her degree in international relations. “Acting is something I knew I wanted to do long term,” she says. “But not going to college was not an option. I think it probably helped me as an actress as well, because actresses need real-life experiences to draw from.” Though she took a break this past year to focus on Ugly Betty, she plans to start up again soon. “Once doing the show becomes more routine, I hope to fit in a class at a time and just slowly work toward my degree. I’ve come too far to quit one semester before graduation.”

It was at USC that Ferrera met her now boyfriend, Ryan Piers Williams. A tall, handsome, Texas-born aspiring director who currently works for Steven Soderbergh, he cast her in his student film, and the two currently live together and share a golden retriever named Buddy, whom they refer to as “our baby.” At Ferrera’s W photo shoot, Williams sits by her side while she’s being coiffed and made up, telling her how pretty she looks and bravely revealing to the crew that he once allowed her to put mascara on his lashes. Says Ferrera, giggling, “He has the longest eyelashes, but they’re blond at the tips, and I just wanted to see what it would look like.”

College, according to Ferrera, also served to help her focus on her career, ensuring that she signed on only for projects that she really wanted to do: movies that ranged from the well-received indie How the Garcia Girls Spent Their Summer to the feel-good teen chick flick Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants. She was living in New York, acting in an Off Broadway play and getting a few electives out of the way by taking classes at New York University when Hayek—whom she’d met in 2002, backstage at the Oprah show while promoting Real Women Have Curves—called her about the role of Betty. “Honestly I never saw myself doing TV,” says Ferrera, “but Salma was so convincing. Salma is the kind of person who could sell you, like, a used stereo. She promised me that it would be done in the right way, and I just trusted her.”

As it turned out, Betty’s i was made for loving you lyrics popularity has brought an avalanche of attention to Ferrera. Now paparazzi stalkings and demands for autographs are part of her daily life. What truly baffles her are the machinations of the tabloid press. In February one weekly gossip rag ran with a story that Ferrera and Williams were engaged, www bbt com checks rise to BETTY TO WED headlines all over the Internet. “It’s totally not true!” capital one 360 online cd rates insists of the rumor. “And his mom called me and my sisters were calling me, and I was like, ‘Are you kidding? Did you not think I would tell you first?’ And then I put out a statement that it wasn’t true, and that became a whole news story. So now it’s news when something doesn’t happen? Like, news flash: California did not get hit by a hurricane today.”

There’s also the near constant reporting on her weight. And in that department it seems she can’t win. On the one hand, reporters seem to enjoy describing her with unflattering terms like “lumpy.” On the other, several Internet gossip sites have criticized her for looking less zaftig in recent months, implying that the actress lauded for promoting realistic body images had officially gone Hollywood. “I mean, of course I want to be at a weight where I’m happy,” says Ferrera, who in person is neither lumpy nor emaciated but a healthy-looking, average-size woman. “There are times when I go to the gym and really try, and there are times when I just don’t. I gain a pound; I lose a pound. But I think I’ve developed a really good sense of when I’m doing something for myself as opposed to when I’m doing something because of other people’s expectations of me. And honestly, even if I wanted to america ferrera siblings anorexic, I just don’t have what it takes. After four hours of being anorexic, I’d be like, ‘It’s been four whole hours! Feed me!’ “

Psychologically it helps that she hasn’t had much time to monitor her press coverage. Her schedule at Ugly Betty is grueling, with workdays that are 12 hours long at the beginning of the week and stretch into the wee hours of the morning as Friday approaches. “Basically we’re making a movie every eight days,” says Ferrera, who insists that she adores every minute of it. “Last week it was only Tuesday and we were already there so late. I had to lead the crew in a cheer of ‘I love my job! I love my job!’ “

“We have her working 24 hours a day,” concurs Silverman, who points out that such a schedule can be good for a 23-year-old actress, considering the antics of today’s young Hollywood types. “I mean, we have her working so damn hard, all she probably wants to do at the end of the day is collapse in a ball.” But even if she had the time, one gets the feeling that hobnobbing with Paris and Lindsay would be very low on Ferrera’s to-do list. “Let’s just say you’re not going to see me at the PlayStation launch party,” she says with a smirk. (Indeed, after the interview she heads not for Bungalow 8 but the F train, which she rides to a friend’s place in Brooklyn.) As gregarious as she is, she says she has never been hypersocial. “Growing up, I never had a ton of friends. I always had two or three, but when you have four sisters and a brother all a year apart, you don’t really need anyone else to play with.”

Ferrera credits her five older siblings for the fact that she’s always felt older than her years. “I learned the naughty words before anyone else in my class,” she says, laughing. “And I think I avoided many of the pitfalls because I got to watch them live through it.” Indeed, chatting with her, it’s easy to forget that she’s only 23. Her maturity is not just a matter of her intelligence—which becomes more and more apparent as she quotes New York Times articles over dinner and discusses genetics while having her hair done pre-photo shoot—but emotional precocity as well. “Happiness is something that you have to decide to have in your life,” she says. “No amount of accolades can make you a happy person, and learning that as young as I did was a gift.” Though she sounds like a poster child for the positive psychology movement that has lately dominated the self-help realm—the Oprah-endorsed best-seller The Secret being its latest missive—Ferrera says she figured out this truism on her own, as a result of her aforementioned Gotta Kick It Up experience.

Still, despite her belief that achievement isn’t a one-way ticket to bliss, Ferrera remains a doer, and an intensely ambitious one at that. Rather than spend her summer hiatus resting up, she hopes to use the time to shoot a movie, though she’s hesitant to talk specifics since nothing is set in stone. “When there’s a film I want to do, sleep doesn’t matter,” she says. “Part of me would love to be sitting in the sun in Italy, but I’d be crazy by day four.” One would think that, considering her recent rise in profile, offers of leading-lady roles would be rolling in, but Ferrera says that isn’t the case. “When it comes to envisioning an actor in a role that they haven’t seen them in, people in this business can be a little uncreative,” she says. “No one is willing to take a gamble.” As a result, she says, she’s had to take a more proactive approach to her career: “It’s been more about developing my own material, finding roles that I would like to play and figuring out a way to get those things made.”

Her plans for the future are, in keeping with her just-make-it-happen attitude, huge: She wants a large family, and she wants to direct and produce and continue acting and maybe teach too. While keeping her natural drive in check can be a struggle—”The hardest part of this year has been learning to enjoy it,” she says. “It’s almost like a full-time job reminding myself to live in the moment and not look for more, more, more”—her recent success has only made her more likely to think big: “I see now that people who make movies, this world of creative geniuses that I grew up idolizing, are just normal people who wanted to do something and made it happen. Everything that’s happened to me in the last year has only made me feel more like a normal person, more human, but in the most beautiful way.”

There are plenty of Latina superstars with gazillions of fans and unit sales, who exist completely above and beyond the Anglo- sphere. And then there’s America Ferrera. The 27-year-old became a household name as the star of Ugly Betty, a role that won her a Golden Globe, a SAG Award, an Emmy and a global fan base.

“Betty will always be with me,” says Ferrera of the part she played for some four years. “She’ll be a huge part of my life forever.”

There are internet rumours – unfounded, of course – that America Ferrera’s smile is insured for x (think of a number) million dollars. It ought to be. A sunny creature who says things like “Oh, you’re too kind” and “I’m so, so blessed”, it’s easy to forget that “being blessed” couldn’t possibly account for her success. With only a few exceptions – J-Lo, Sofía Vergara, erm. . Spanglish superstars are few and far between.

Fererra is more exceptional still: not simply a statistical anomaly but a critical darling. Her career has inspired the kind of rave notices and wows that poor old Jenny from the Block can only mobile homes for sale under 5000 in south carolina of. Even before she donned lawnmower blade braces and let her eyebrows run free as Betty Suarez – a process she called “Bettification” - the actress had won awards for such female-oriented pictures as Real Women Have Curves, How the Garcia Girls Spent Their Summer and The Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants.

“Growing up, the characters I most often related to were male characters,” she says. “So I think I’ve always held out for the female characters who are in the driver’s seat. It’s fun to bring them to the screen.”

She also done a critic-pleasing stint on London’s West End, as Roxie Hart in Chicago, and will return to Broadway later this year in a revival of Terrence McNally’s Lips Together, Teeth Apart.

“I don’t think anyone knew what my career would look like,” she says. “So we were all surprised by the turn of events. So very surprised.”

Ferrera is, additionally, involved with the organisation Voto Latino and has worked on Barrack Obama’s election campaigns. She routinely features as part of America’s Most Influential Hispanics compendiums.

Life and work must sometimes feel a little ambassadorial, surely?

“It’s tricky,” she says. “It’s been my own journey to figure out what I care about and what I want to stand for. But certainly people place and project their own meanings. My career is definitely something that that Latino community is proud of and claim. I think that that’s wonderful. I love being Latina. I love the fact that I’m a woman who doesn’t fit easily inside common stereotypes. I’m grateful that people latch on to that. But it’s not really something that I think about myself. I don’t wake up wondering: ‘How am I going to represent all these minorities and groups?’”

America Georgine Ferrera was born in Los Angeles in 1984, the youngest of six children born to Honduran immigrants America and Carlos. They divorced when Ferrera the Younger was seven-years-old; Carlos returned to Honduras, leaving her mother, who worked as the director of housekeeping staff for Hilton Hotels, to raise the children alone. Her daughter suspects that her mother is the reason she developed a taste for strong female role models.

“She had to be strong to run the household,” recalls Ferrera. “We got to explore unknown territory because she was so strong and inspiring.”

Did being the youngest play a part in her future career?

“It’s funny. I’ve met a lot of artists or entertainers who are youngest children. I think, if anything, there’s a little bit of having amazon a to z hub work login carve out your own identity going on. Your older siblings will have done everything already. There were so many siblings and so many hobbies and interests and even personalities that were claimed before I got there. You have to spend more time figuring out who you are.”

For Ferrera, who she was meant acting, a profession she decided upon aged eight, having landed the role of the Artful Dodger in a school production of Oliver!

“I don’t think it was taken seriously at first,” recalls America. “Every eight-year-old wants to be a movie star or a veterinarian or an astronaut. And it’s hard to know which of those ambitions will stick around. As I got older and continued to express an interest, it was difficult for my mother. She would have preferred that I stayed focused on my education and got a sensible job and a sensible degree. With real stability.”

She entered the University of Southern California on a presidential scholarship and spent a semester in Northern Ireland as part of her double major in theatre and international relations. During her studies she met the Texan director Ryan Piers Williams, her future husband, when he cast her in a student play.

“We’ve practically grown up together,” she laughs.

Williams and Ferrera have been married since 2011 and have made two films together: The Dry Land, a 2010 Imagen Award-nominated drama about a soldier returning from Iraq and the upcoming X/Y, which debuted at the Tribeca festival earlier this year. Both star, she produces, he directs.

Who bosses who on that shoot?

“It’s definitely a challenge,” says Ferrera. “But it’s just as much of a challenge when we’re immersed in our own projects. You still have to carve out time to come home and be a couple. What’s nice about working together is that we’re both in the same creative process; we can dive in and stay together. Of course there are still things you have to work around. Who is going to walk the dogs? Who is going to do the dishes? But it feels right. We admire one another. Partly because of our shared passion for storytelling and film. It can be exhausting. And I wouldn’t want to do it all year round. But it’s a treat.”

Before X/Y reaches our shores, there’s a little movie called How to Train Your Dragon 2 to contend with. The sequel to the $494,878,759 grossing 2010 original, Dragon 2 has a staggered release in this part of the world (out now in ROI, but not in the UK) to chime with its unusual World Cup crossover demographics. Unlike most Dreamworks or Pixar Animations, How to Train Your Dragon’s CinemaScore weighting suggests that it’s the one animation that brings in men and grown-ups. The new instalment was, in fact, hip enough to feature at the Cannes Film Festival.

“None of us knew what to expect first time around,” says Ferrera, who voices Astrid for the fire-breathing franchise. “It was amazing to see an audience come to the movie and find it and enjoy it. And it was word of mouth really spread it. Since then we made a series for Cartoon Network called Dragon Riders of Berk. I think that really gave people more to cling on to and more reasons to love the characters. I was a huge fan of the first film. So it’s fun to come back knowing that there’s a fan base, knowing that there are people with high expectations, knowing they are waiting for it.”

She suspects they’ll be glad that they did.

“I think it really delivers. I thought it would be a huge challenge for (writer/director) Dean DeBois to live up to the original. But I think the new one is amazing. I’m a huge, huge fan.”

The dragon-riding Astrid – despite being a blonde – is typical of the kind of roles we’ve come to associate America Fererra. She can star in a girly coming-of-age picture such as Travelling Pants (for which she was nominated for Best Hissy Fit at the Teen Choice Awards). She can turn up tomboy as the skater Thunder Monkey in Catherine Hardwicke’s Lords of Dogtown or as Officer Orozco in David Ayers’ End of Watch. But all of her major roles share a certain kick-assedness.

“I hope so. I grew up playing baseball with the boys and dress-up with my sisters. Both are part of me. So I want to find characters that are fresh and that reflect that. And that are masters of their own fate.”

In this spirit as soon as Ugly Betty came to an end, Ferrera set up a production company and started to seek out writers and directors she could collaborate with. Ultimately, she hopes to move to the other side of the camera as a film-maker. For the america ferrera siblings, she’s happy with producing and developing material.

“At a certain point I do want to direct something myself. I’m aware how few women that are out there writing and directing. So I feel compelled to walk the walk and push myself into the creative process and be a part of creating stories. It’s only right that I walk the walk and do what I urge so many other young women to do. Don’t sit around and wait for others to break out.”

Last year, she finally finished the degree that had to go on hiatus when Ugly Betty came along. Most actors, I suspect, would not have bothered going back to school in the circumstances.

“But I was raised to value education above everything. And even though it was a lot of work at the end, it was easy and sort of for me to go back and finish because it was a welcome break from work and life. I had the luxury to go back and finish it.

“I do a lot of work advocating greater access to education so it very important to me personally. And my mom was so concerned when I didn’t complete my last semester. I think those concerns are a little less prominent now.”

Superstore: America Ferrera says she gets mistaken for Gina The reach key west spa, is obsessed with Cate Blanchett

America Ferrera is on — or rather, in — Cloud Nine these days: The 31-year-old Ugly Betty alum has returned to TV in the NBC comedy Superstore as Amy, a seen-it-all floor supervisor toiling in a Walmart-like emporium named Cloud 9. “It feels like a heightened, bright world which you can’t get away from when you’re setting it in a big box store,” she says of the series (which was sneak-previewed on America ferrera siblings. 30 and premieres in its regular time slot Monday at 8 p.m.). “Everyone and anybody has walked into one of these stores, so the possibilities for who walks in and one arizona credit union login happens in the store are endless.” Her character, meanwhile, is not exactly full of wonder and possibility. “Amy is in a lot of ways the opposite of Betty,” she notes. “She’s had hard circumstances, to the point where she’s not really expecting anything wonderful to happen on a day-to-day basis or really in her pay my bill t mobile prepaid. It’s a complete 180 from the go-get-’em optimism of Betty.” Read on to see how a series of best-worst-most-least questions register with Ferrera.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: What question do people ask you the most?

AMERICA FERRERA: “Is America your real name?” That’s the only name I have, so yes. It’s my only-iest name.

What was your weirdest fan encounter?

A fan that tattooed my initials on them felt very weird. It creeped me out a little. I just said, “Oh, okay! Bye!”

What is the impulse buy that you regret the most?

With my first big paycheck, I went and leased a BMW, and literally two months later I couldn’t afford to put gas in the tank. And so very quickly, I went in and exchanged it for a Toyota — and still have that Toyota, by the way.

What is the line of dialogue from a movie or TV show you quote the most?

I quote Steel Magnolias all the time. It’s the scene where she’s having a fit, and then Sally Field says, “Drink your juice, Shelby!” And I have to say it in the accent, too. My husband and I quote it to each other all the time. We always say, “Drink your juice, Shelby,” before we drink something. It doesn’t make any sense.

Who is the person you’re mistaken for the most?

These days I would have to say Gina Rodriguez. [Ed. note: The Golden Globes Twitter account made the same mistake after this interview.] It’s fun to be able to say, “Nope, sorry, not her!” and I keep walking. Weirdly, I got mistaken for Michelle Rodriguez [in the past], which doesn’t make any sense, because we couldn’t be more different. Once, I got Selena Gomez. Basically anyone who’s Latina. People just look at me and go, “I think she’s vaguely famous — she’s definitely the one famous Latina who I might know.”

What is the red carpet look you wore that you regret the most?

Anything before I had a stylist. Everything before I paid someone else to dress me. … My biggest fashion regret has something more to do with comfort. One time, I wore a jumpsuit to a premiere. When I tried it on, it fit me, and when I put it back on for the premiere, it was a little bit big up top. And a jumpsuit has to be held up by something. I went ahead and wore it anyway, and the whole time, I’m breathing out — doing the opposite of sucking it in — so that my jumpsuit does not flip down and expose my breasts. That was a very stress-inducing fashion decision. So I do regret that. Lesson learned: Wear stuff that fits you.

What kind of viral video makes you laugh the hardest?

Dogs acting like humans, anything dogs do that is vaguely like a human trait — it’s wearing glasses, or it looks like it’s reading something or watching TV. I recall one of a dog who waits until his family’s gone and then he incessantly slides down the pool slide over and over again. I feel like I could watch that forever and laugh.

Which movie makes you cry the hardest?

I remember having a headache for literally days after I watched Hotel Rwanda. Literally for days, I had a headache from how much I cried watching that movie. The truth of the movie was so devastating, and I just wasn’t expecting it. Sometimes you go in and you can keep your wall up and your guard up. I feel like I watched 12 Years a Slave but kind of with one eye closed, and I didn’t let my guard down. But there was something with Hotel Rwanda that I just got caught off-guard.

What was the worst job you ever had?

I cleaned up after my neighbor’s pet pig for probably $5 an hour, which I’m not even sure is legal. I don’t know that you can employ a 10-year-old to clean up your pet pig for less than minimum wage.

What was the most nervous you ever were for an audition?

It was a singing audition. They were going to turn In the Heights, the Broadway musical, into a movie. And then the movie fell apart. I had to sing for director Kenny Ortega and for Lin-Manuel [Miranda]. I was trembling and sweating. I was thinking, “How could I hurt myself in a way that would keep me from the audition but wouldn’t put me in the hospital?”

What was the best piece of acting advice you have received?

Just to go moment to moment and to throw away plans and expectations.

What was the toughest time you’ve had with a single line of dialogue?

Well, this was a really hard line because it was just a terrible line. It was the very first job I ever did; it was a Disney Channel movie called Gotta Kick It Up. Look it up. I played Yolanda, the chubby but enthusiastic member of the dance team who also was bad at math. And we were having a car wash to get enough money to get a bus to semifinals, and Yolanda wasn’t doing good in math class, so the coach said she could only go if she correctly tallied the earnings at the car wash. And so Yolanda’s line was as follows: “Collecting’s the easy part. It’s the counting and adding that’s tricky.” I may be misquoting Yolanda; I apologize if I am. It was probably the line I regret the most ever having to say in my career because it’s absolutely absurd.

What was the most vulnerable you ever felt during a scene?

My first feature film role was Real Women Have Curves. At 17 I had to undress, and dance, and have a good time — in my bra and underwear in front of a crew. That was incredibly scary. But by take 2, I didn’t even need the robe anymore. I’m like, ”I’m cool. Let’s just go.”

What was the role you lobbied hardest for but didn’t get?

Oh my God, that’s like, every day of my life … Oh! I remember, I was still 18, and I wanted to be on The George Lopez Show. I wanted to play his 13-year-old daughter, and I wore a sports bra to flatten my chest and everything, because I so desperately wanted to play his daughter. I didn’t get it, and that was very crushing to me.

What is your greatest weakness as an actress?

I am the worst at keeping a straight face — the worst. I break all the time. Ask anybody who’s ever acted with me. It’s terrible. And also, to the point where it’s, like, not funny anymore. Because they’re just like, “Okay, America, it’s 3 in the morning. Can you stop laughing so we can all go home?”

Which costar made you laugh the hardest?

I did just work with Ricky Gervais on his film Special Correspondents, and one of the hardest things I’ve ever had to do was act with Ricky. As previously stated, I am very bad at keeping a straight face, and he’s just so funny. And little secret: Ricky Gervais breaks up more than anybody. He laughs all the time, which is wonderful and generous, but also, he laughs on your coverage, and you’re like, “I’m glad you thought that was funny, but now you can’t use it, because you’re laughing all over it.”

Which costar taught you the most?

I got very lucky in my first feature role at 17: I was acting opposite Lupe Ontiveros, who has passed away since, and she was such a huge influence to me. She was so professional, she was so warm and respectful, and her energy just made the set an amazing place to be. I couldn’t have had a better example of how to be on a set, and how to set the tone, and how to make for a great, inviting environment, where people can do their best work. So that’s the standard that I hold for all the sets I’m on. I know that it’s possible to make it a warm, wonderful, inviting, safe place, and that’s what I carry with me onto set when I’m there.

What is the Superstore scene that you are most looking forward to people seeing?

When we were shooting the pilot, we were doing a night shoot, and we were shooting until 7 in the morning. We all got so loopy, we were singing and dancing and staging impromptu fashion shows to stay awake. So we just had this loopy, crazy night where none of us were drunk but we felt drunk because that’s how tired we were, and that real-life night shoot actually inspired an episode toward the end of the season called “All Nighter” where the employees get locked in the superstore overnight. It’s such a fun episode where all bets are off and you get june 1st 2020 holiday discover who these characters are after-hours; the façade of your work person starts to wear off and you just start revealing yourself to each other. I’m excited for people to see the fashion show scene that was inspired by the fashion show we put on in our night shoot during the pilot.

Who is the actor or actress you most want to work with before you retire?

At the moment, I’m obsessed with Cate Blanchett. I would love to act with optum bank hsa login page. We are costars best place for soup and salad near me How to Train Your Dragon, but we don’t ever get to work together, which is so sad. I would be anything petra solano actress her onscreen. I would do anything. If she’s reading this, she should know I will do whatever to act with her. She’s so alive and present in every single moment, and not for one second do you feel like she’s acting; you just feel like she’s living the character and being in the moment. The acting is undetectable, and that is so exhilarating, and I feel like it would be so intoxicating to be an actor around her.

What object have you held on to the longest?

I have a pair of pink jellies that I used to wear when I was 2 years old. When I set up my dressing-room station or a trailer, I bring along my pink jellies. They come everywhere with me. They’re fading, they’re not as pink as they used to be, and they still have a rock lodged in them that has been there since the 1980s. I used to want to get the rock out, but now I feel like the rock is a part of it.
