The Jane the Virgin star opened up to the glossy about her childhood, biggest crush, and more. Check it:
On her best advice: “All of those thoughts, ‘I’m not pretty enough, smart enough, strong enough,’ only exist within you. If you don’t feel like you’re strong enough, start working on your strength…. Let’s start breaking these thoughts down and understand where the illusion lies, where the truth lies, where your control is and what you can do to make it better. Now, when somebody tells me no, I say, ‘OK, thank you. I’m gonna look for the yes. Your no doesn’t end my world.’”
On what she was like in high school: “I looked like a little boy. I didn’t get my period until I was 16. I went to school with all the wealthy kids, and I was on financial aid, and they all seemed to grow up a lot quicker than I did. So it was difficult. These kids had Mercedes at 16. It was surreal to think, ‘Why isn’t this my life?’ But it made me work harder because I wanted it, too, and I knew I was gonna be able to get it: “Oh, this is not my life, but it will be one day.”
On her celebrity crush: “Tom Hardy. Delicious.”
