Gina Rodriguez hates being Photoshopped
Gina Rodriguez hates being Photoshopped.
The 'Jane The Virgin' star would rather have all her "flaws" on display than have her curves and birthmark edited away.
She told the October issue of Women's Health magazine: "This day and age of Photoshopping and transforming oneself and filtering and filtering and filtering, it really feels good when a photo can capture my heart, my body, my spirit, without having to gloss over it. Let me keep my curves, my birthmark. I want to look like myself ...
"People will say you are not attractive. People will say you are not skinny enough, not tall enough, not thick enough, not curvy enough, not white enough, not brown enough, not this enough. Well, I really hope you don't feel that way about yourself, because then we're all screwed."
Meanwhile, the 32-year-old actress previously insisted she is more than just her looks.
She shared: "I am not my beauty. Who I am is not my f***ing hair, and to be an actor is to transform.
"To represent a community is to commit, to give my entire all. So if I'm going to represent Latinos in the industry and in art, if I'm going to represent my little cousins in Chicago, they're going to know that I went full-out. Who are we afraid of? What are we afraid of? The worst thing that can happen is we die. Anything else you can handle."
And the brunette beauty loves being a role model to women and men across the world.
She added: "A strong leader is one who creates other leaders. So if I am encouraging young girls to take control of their lives, to spread kindness, then I am doing the job God put me here to do. With every attempt we make within the industry, with every project I take, it will be to advance women. Not only women of colour but all women and men."
