  • Q: How have you dealt with the challenges of being a Latina in Hollywood? America Ferrera: "The thing about entertainment is that people want to label you right away, because it's easier for them to say, O.K., my brain now knows what you are. Latinas have struggled in Hollywood for a very long time to be seen as something other than the stereotypical maid, gardener, cholo, Pregnant Girl No. 5. I've been on those auditions. It's about getting rid of those labels." Q: How do you think Ugly Betty changed the way that network TV depicts minorities? America: "A young Latina girl as the center of a network television show? That just wasn't a reality, and now it is. And of course there was the depiction of Betty's young nephew. That was a huge challenge to stereotypes. Homosexuality is so unaccepted in Latino culture. To portray a Latino family that loves and supports and accepts this child for who he is was incredibly groundbreaking." [Time]
