Gina Rodriguez: “I Slay, OK? Like, Slaaaaaayyy!”
We don’t have to tell Gina Rodriguez that she’s kicking a$$ because she knows it!
On a new episode of “I Yahoo’d Myself,” the actress told it like it is, “If we want to talk about real life, I slay, OK? Like, slaaaaaayyy!”
Rodriguez was talking about the difficulties of fitting into Hollywood norms with host Joe Zee. “It was going to be very difficult for me to fit into Hollywood’s perception of what an ingenue is or a leading lady.” But, IRL, Rodriguez sees herself as a damn good leading lady.
The two also gabbed about inner beauty, lingerie and makeup. “The idea of makeup and hair is to just enhance our inner beauty not hide or deny that what we already begin with, our palette that we begin with is not freaking awesome.”
While Rodriguez admits she’s not a sample size, she confesses she’s not immune to the pressures of the industry, “…Of course I’ve fallen into the culture. One hundred percent I’ve fallen into the culture.” She admits cameras do add 10 pounds, but that’s ok because it’s beautiful, too.
And Rodriguez is a fangirl, just like us. She gushed about her choreographed duet to “Toxic” with Ms. Britney Spears herself and, not-so-secretly, hopes Prince Royces will come on the show to sing…or maybe be a new love interest. ?
