America Ferrera Once Felt Like an Ugly Betty

January 26th, 2007 // 2 Comments

The recent Golden Globe winner admits that she was a real-life Ugly Betty when she first tried to get work in Hollywood. She initially felt confident about herself when she arrived in Hollywood, but once she started going to auditions, she immediately realized all the other actresses were skinny and perfect.

Ferrera told Hello magazine: “I didn’t know how fat and ugly I was until I started going to auditions. I don’t feel that way inside.

“To me, it seems like the roles that mean something, the roles that really delve in and make people feel connected to it and make me feel connected to it, are roles that are flawed and the roles that nobody else wants to play.”

“I never wanted top be a model. I never wanted to do ads for skincare.

“If I’m in the spotlight for something like ‘Top Sexiest Girls Between 21 and 22′, that’s a little uncomfortable because it’s not based on who I really am.”

You go girl!
