Not so Ugly Betty - America Ferrera looking hot!
First Ellen Degeneres, now America Ferrera, W Magazine is doing a fanatastic job of showing us the hotter side of some of our favorite celebrities!
"Hot Betty," photographed by Michael Thompson, is the cover story of the May 2007 issue of W.
The star of Ugly Betty, America Ferrera, talks about growing up in a predominantly white family.
"As early as second grade I remember feeling really different and isolated," she says. "I had the hugest crush on a boy, and my best friend had a crush on him too. One day he said to me, 'I like your best friend more because she's paler and she has freckles.' And it was right then that I began to feel like, Oh wow, I'm different."
She talks about falling in love with acting.
“Acting was not something that they [America’s Honduran-born parents] came to this county to have me do. For a time I thought I could be a lawyer. Once I saw what it really meant to be a lawyer, I realized that it wasn’t for me. I thought it was like in the movies, like, ‘You can’t handle the truth!’”
She also talks about joining the cast of Ugly Betty.
"Honestly I never saw myself doing TV," says Ferrera, "but Salma was so convincing. Salma is the kind of person who could sell you, like, a used stereo. She promised me that it would be done in the right way, and I just trusted her."
Ugly Betty cleans up well!
