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.”
