She Has Her Own TV Show And Won A Golden Globe, But Gina Rodriguez *Just* Paid Off Her Student Loans

Gina Rodriguez was on the Late Show with Stephen Colbert last night to talk about her upcoming projects, and also dropped some details about her new boyfriend. But before the taping, she took a selfie video talking about her excitement to meet the one and only forever-papi-chulo, Brad Pitt.

Gina Rodriguez was on camera talking about her excitement to meet Brad Pitt.


No matter how famous you get, there will always be someone you get star struck by.

The two met backstage and got along swimmingly.

They look like best buds dancing at prom. A film with both of them would be huge. One, because that would be awesome for both of their careers and two, because if she’s in a Brad Pitt film, it would really bring her to new heights in Hollywood, and we need more Latinas up at the top.

Gina also dished on the first time she saw her boyfriend in the gym.

She was like “Daaaaamn.”

She also talked to Stephen Colbert about shaking it in experimental theater.

Although the Late Show host has shown his dance moves and singing chops for years, it was fun to see Rodriguez show him how to shimmy. It’s not always about the moves, sometimes it’s more about the swag, and she oozes it.

More than anything we were excited to hear the news that she was finally able to pay off her student loans.

It’s a privilege for most people to ever pay off their student loans entirely, but it’s doubly amazing when you consider someone as successful as Rodriguez took 11 years to pay off her loans. She says it took “way too long” but she wouldn’t “change it for the world.” It really does show how difficult, yet important, it is to invest in your own education and Rodriguez, fortunately, understood that early on.

She mentions an interesting learning moment in acting classes when she had to learn how to not use her hands.

Fortunately it was an exercise and not forever, because her Puerto Rican hand-talking is on point.
