Success or Failure, Gina Rodriguez Is Ready To Direct a Movie!

Gina Rodriguez looks gorgeous and happy for her online cover feature for Self!

The Jane The Virgin actress dished about her Hashimoto’s disease, professional goals, and her boyfriend Joe LoCicero. Check it:

On her boyfriend Joe
: “[He] has really helped me have a healthier perspective on [weight], that stupid number that can destroy us and feel like it’s equivalent to our self-worth. This love is so easy.”

On living with Hashimoto’s
: “To the core of my being, I know what it’s like to feel like there is no way I can win this, so where do I even begin. [Hashimoto’s] affects so many aspects of your life. I’ve had it for so many years…that rebellion of not taking care of myself can’t exist anymore.”

On what her next career goals are: “I’m ready to [direct] my movie. Whether that means success or failure, I’m ready to go for it… Obviously I come from a very specific lens and a very specific perspective. I of course would love to see Latino communities uplifted and celebrated in a positive light, because our administration loves to show us in such a negative light. That’s going to be a part of my fight.”
