July 29, 2023 Jennifer Comments Off on “Barbie” Press in Los Angeles and London

If you’re yet to see the Barbie movie, then we won’t spoil it for you – but those who have will know that there’s a pivotal scene involving America Ferrera’s character, Gloria; one which has since spawned countless social-media tributes and online think pieces. It’s reported that Ferrera and the film’s director, Greta Gerwig, rehearsed and workshopped the speech almost 50 times, bringing their fellow cast members to tears, so important was it to nail the messaging and make an impact on the audience.

But the woman behind the character is just as inspiring in real life. Ferrera, who is our summer digital cover star, has never held herself back, telling us she’s always felt “pulled towards speaking up” and that a need to fight for others has always been deeply rooted within her.

America Ferrera tells us her life lessons.

July 28, 2023 Jennifer Comments Off on America Ferrera: Life Lessons

America Ferrera is spilling details on her experience making “Barbie”! Access Hollywood’s Zuri Hall spoke to the actress, before the SAG-AFTRA strike started, about her first reaction to reading the movie’s script and how she relates to the film’s themes. She also gushed over working with Margot Robbie and said she “gasped” seeing her as Barbie for the first time, saying, “She looked more like Barbie than Barbie!” Plus, America dished on how her kids, 5 and 3, have come to understand her work on the movie. “They’re still too young to really know what it means, but they did visit Barbieland, and they think that when I’m not with them, I live and work in Barbieland. So, if I’m at work and I FaceTime them, they’re like, ‘Can we see the Barbie house?'” she shared. “Barbie” is out in theaters now.

DISCLAIMER: This interview took place prior to the SAG-AFTRA strike.

America Ferrera is all dolled up.

Or, well, I imagine she is. We’re on the phone together and it’s nerve-wracking, talking to someone who ostensibly shaped my childhood.

Real Women Have Curves, Ugly Betty, Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants. Ferrera was a north star of sorts for young Latinas unused to seeing their stories so lovingly portrayed on screen. There’s a complexity in occupying this status as a “body-positive” icon before body-positivity entered mainstream consciousness – especially during a time where near-emaciation seemed to be the goal to strive toward. Ferrera’s work functioned like a salve against rigid Eurocentric beauty standards. These weren’t soppy narratives full of empty words about self-acceptance. Instead they faced down a judgemental society and dared it to say anything, featuring characters who recognized that they deserved more than loving themselves “in spite of.”

And now, she plays a pivotal role in the Barbie movie.
