11 Things We Learned About Gina Rodriguez From Her Twitter Q&A

Gina Rodriguez has already proven herself to be the fairy godmother of social media, especially on Twitter. The Puerto Rican actor is very active on social media, so it made sense for her to host her IMDb “Deepwater Horizon” Q&A on Twitter. Here are just a few things we learned from the Hollywood sweetheart.

First, she was very excited to interact with her fans.

And she kept the same sense of humor we have come to expect and love from her.

The TV star admitted that she really wants to work alongside Tom Hardy.

But, like, can you blame her?

She absolutely ❤️’s baby Mateo from “Jane The Virgin.” ?

“Baby Mateo makes my ovaries cry sounds of joy,” Rodriguez says laughing. She even credited little Mateo, played by Aiden Fernandes, with being the best actor of the series.

There is a lot of stuff she wants to learn, like jiu-jitsu, cooking fancy dinners and flying a plane.

Rodriguez wants to work behind the camera at some point and hopes to direct an episode of “Jane The Virgin.”

We also learned that Rodriguez has a production company, I Can And I Will Productions, that will try to find some new and diverse talent to bring to the masses.

Rodriguez even took her fans to church with this response on self-love and owning one’s power.

“Start loving yourself today,” Rodriguez told her fans. “Start working on that self-love right now because anything is possible when you understand your power, when you accept your power, and when you walk gracefully and confidently in that power.” *poetry snaps*

Shooting “Deepwater Horizon” was a challenging experience since the actors wanted to make sure they told the story well.

Rodriguez is playing Andrea Fleytas, who sent up the first distress call when the oil rig in the Gulf of Mexico started to explode on April 20, 2010.

While she is excited to see herself on the big screen, she is more excited to share the story.

She admires her “Deepwater Horizon” character’s strength and courage.

“I am in awe of that kind of courage,” Rodriguez said. “So, it’s not only inspiring and encouraging, but it’s also something to marvel at. She’s awesome.”

Her biggest motivator on a bad day is knowing that you have control of how your days turn out.

Essentially, she loves the knowledge that she gains from having bad days.

And, lastly, like most Latinxs, her mother is her biggest real life hero.

“My mom is my real life hero. I’ve seen her go through some crazy things and that woman is strong,” Rodriguez gushed about her mom. “She’s definitely the kindest woman in out family, but don’t mistake her kindness for weakness.”

Salma Hayek Speaks Out About Filming The Sex Scene In ‘Desperado’ Calls It Traumatic


Salma Hayek Speaks Out About Filming The Sex Scene In ‘Desperado’ Calls It Traumatic

Salma Hayek is not putting her efforts of the #MeToo movement behind her. In fact, her most recent disclosure about her experience filming the 1995 movie Desperado proves she has yet to lose momentum. While the graphic film grossed $25.4 million in the United States box office and received rave reviews, Hayek says it wasn’t all great.

During a recent appearance on Dax Shepard’s Armchair Expert podcast, Hayek opened up about her breakout role.

Sony Pictures Releasing

Speaking about her experience Hayek explained that she had not known at the time that she did not know she had been signedup to film a sex scene with costar Antonio Banderas.

“So, when we were going to start shooting, I started to sob, ‘I don’t know that I can do it. I’m afraid,'” Hayek said in the interview with Shepard. “One of the things I was afraid of was Antonio — he was an absolute gentleman and so nice, and we’re still super close friends — but he was very free. It scared me that for him, it was like nothing. I started crying, and he was like, ‘Oh my God. You’re making me feel terrible.’ And I was so embarrassed that I was crying.”

Speaking more about the experience, Hayek underlined that Banderas and director Robert Rodriguez tried their best to make her feel comfortable on set. She also added that she felt as if Rodriguez “never put pressure” on her.

Still, Hayek says that the experience was traumatic.

“I was not letting go of the towel,” Hayek explained. “They would try to make me laugh. I would take it off for two seconds and start crying again. But we got through it. We did the best with what we could do at the time.”

“When you’re not you, then you can do it. But I keep thinking of my father and my brother,” she went onto explain. “And are they going to see it? And are they going to get teased? Guys don’t have that. Your father will be, ‘Yeah! That’s my son!'”

Hayek and Banderas have remained friends since filming and they have gone on to star in five other projects.

In fact, just last year, Hayek presented Banderas with an award at the Palm Springs International Film Festival. Banderas was honored for his role in Pain & Glory with the International Star Award.

An Old Video Of To TV Hosts Debating Whether The Moon Is A Planet Or A Star Has Twitter Twisted

Things That Matter

An Old Video Of To TV Hosts Debating Whether The Moon Is A Planet Or A Star Has Twitter Twisted

To be a star or a planet? That is the question.

Or at least, it was The Question that made heads roll a few years ago and has begun to do again thanks to a revival of an old video.

Six years ago, in 2015 a QVC segment went viral after designer Isaac Mizrahi and his co-host Shawn Killinger got into a heated debate about whether the moon was a star or a planet. Little did they know that the moon, well, it’s actually just a moon.

Now, six years later, the old segment is making waves again.

Mizrahi and Killinger started the strange debate in a clip that is surfacing again on Twitter.

The clip starts out with Killinger holding up a shirt made of green, white, and blue colors before declaring, “This is what we call emerald, but really it’s more of a seafoam.” She then goes onto point out that “it almost kinda looks like what the earth looks like when you’re a bazillion miles away from the planet moon.”

Then in the familiar way that we’ve all done after realizing we might have made a mistake, Shawn mutters the phrase again, contemplating. “The planet moon.”

Not picking up on her hesitations, Isaac agrees “The planet moon.” Copping to her mistake, Shawn asks “Isn’t the moon a star?”

“The moon is a planet, darling,” Isaac replies before pulling his co-host into a sixty-two-second-long debate in which Isaac insists the moon is a planet. “The moon is such a planet I can’t even stand it,” he even declares at one point. In reaction, Shawn attempts to support her argument by going through the planets in our solar system. Unfortunately, she doesn’t get very far and names Earth, Uranus, Saturn, and “the one with the rings.”

This is when Shawn then comes to the conclusion that the Sun is a star too but Isaac quickly replies that “We don’t know what the sun is” meaning that “us” as in the whole world doesn’t know.

The whole thing is only resolved once someone off-camera confirms what most of us all already know, the moon is not a star, a planet, but a natural satellite.

Much to Shawn and Isaac’s chagrin of course.

“A natural satellite? What’s that mean? I don’t like that at all,” Shawn asks suspiciously. “A natural satellite,” Isaac replies, adding. “But things live on it. That means it’s a planet.”

Fortunately, the hosts move on with the show to sell their shirts, but fans on Twitter have yet to forget.

Someone even animated the entire sequence.
