Gina Rodriguez On Her Golden Globe Win: 'The Nomination Itself Was The Win'

Gina Rodriguez gets her close up on the Summer 2015 issue of Glam Belleza Latina.

The 30-year-old Jane The Virgin actress opened up about natural beauty values, the importance of her Golden Globe win and more. Check it:

On her Golden Globe win: “Obviously the win was fantastic, but the nomination itself was the win. I want to be acknowledged for what I do. For people to stop and say, ‘She can act her ass off. I want to work with her.’ That way I can tell more stories. And I can open up more doors. And God willing, I’ll get to a place where I can executive-produce shows and I can put other people on.”

On embracing natural beauty: “I still embrace the values that I was raised with. When people post pictures of me on social media looking crazy, in midspeech, I can still see beauty in those pictures. I’m real and I’m not put-together all the time. Like, that is just the truth. And to live up to that is just too much. It’s not sustainable at all.”

On red carpets: “No [it's never nerve wracking], because I belong there. I just do. So do the girls behind me and the girls in front of me. We all do. Genesis Rodriguez, Natalie Martinez, Melonie Diaz. I support them all. I’ve got their backs because we’re not alone.”
