GINA RODRIGUEZ & MARIE CLAIRE'S WOMEN'S HONORS

Gina Rodriguez



For January cover star Gina Rodriguez, there's no such thing as holding back. Here, a look at the Golden Globe-winning Jane the Virgin phenom's fearless life and be sure to tune in on December 19th to Marie Claire’s Young Women’s Honors hosted and produced by Gina Rodriguez.



Quotes:



On knowing she wanted to act and getting her start: “My path wasn’t laid out for me in my family or my culture, because there are so few of us in the industry. That’s how my whole career happened. Your eyes are open; you don’t know what the next answer is going to be, but you’re open. And you take every opportunity that comes your way.”



On turning down roles that perpetuated stereotypes: “I decided I was going to take roles that progressed the image of Latinos in the industry, and I was going to choose those roles over money. I wanted to make sure I was contributing positively and not allowing limitations to dampen my experiences and my journey.”

GINA RODRIGUEZ & HOTTIE BOYFRIEND HENRI ESTEVE

****
E! NEWS INTERVIEW
****

Gina Rodriguez



E! News-- We've seen Gina Rodriguez and her hottie boyfriend Henri Esteve together and up close, and let us just say that they make for one fine couple.


The Jane the Virgin star and Revenge actor have been dating for about a year.


"He's gorgeous! And he's talented! And he's a really, really good guy!" Rodriguez gushed about Esteve when I caught up with her the other day at a photo shoot (more on that later!).


Rodriguez says there's no big secret to making their "great relationship" work.


"I just know that I have a very strong [and] supportive boyfriend," she said. "He's an amazing artist himself who respects the craft…He supports me and I think that's all that matters. We're very honest and there's a lot of communication. He knows that my priority is Jane and him and family."


She also confessed that it helps that they're both "nutty."


Rodriguez is one of Hollywood's fastest rising stars. Not only did her work as Janeearn her a Golden Globe, but she's rumored to have snagged a co-starring role opposite Mark Wahlberg in the upcoming oil spill drama, Deepwater Horizon. And she tweeted just yesterday that she's filming an appearance today on…Sesame Street!


Even with all the success, Rodriguez remains grounded. There is no diva behavior. There is no starving herself to be thinner.


She says her father empowered her self-esteem early on by pointing out billboards to her and her two sisters.


"He would say, 'That's one version of beauty and you're another and that woman's another and mom is another,'" Rodriguez said, adding, "Usually when someone tells you that you are not good enough, that your are not strong enough, that you are not pretty enough or skinny enough, it's usually fear that exists within them—not within you."


And her mom taught her how to love herself without makeup.


"When I put makeup on, I'm playing and I'm having fun and I'm feeling good about myself," Rodriguez said. "But when I take it off, I'm loving my life and I feel good about myself."
