America Ferrera talks daily struggle with Cosmopolitan for Latinas

Honduran-American actress America Ferrera, appears on the cover of the Fall/Winter 2012 issue of Cosmopolitan for Latinas, on newsstands now. In the interview, America Ferrera dishes on staying confident, standing your ground, and her Latina upbringing.

On knowing the role of Betty on Ugly Betty was meant for her from the very beginning: "Anytime I walk into something apologetic or wondering if I'm good enough, I never get it. There's a certain lack of ownership that people can detect. When I walk in and own it, that's when I usually get it."

On her daily struggle in an industry that breeds insecurity: "More often than not, I hate photos shoots and I hate being on the red carpet. I don't think I'm very well equipped for the scrutiny or the pressure to be perfect, and I don't think anyone really is." She continues, "People are saying 'We love you and love what you do,' and you're sitting there thinking, 'I'm not skinny enough or pretty enough.' It's taken a lot of work to get over that."

On her determination to inspire young woman to learn from her past mistakes: "How much time have I wasted on diets and what I look like? Take your time and your talent and figure out what you have to contribute to this world and get over what the hell your butt looks like in those jeans!"
