London | “Jane The Virgin” actress Gina Rodriguez says she would rather have all her “flaws” on display than have her curves and birthmark edited away.
“This day and age of photoshopping and transforming oneself and filtering and filtering and filtering, it really feels good when a photo can capture my heart, my body, my spirit, without having to gloss over it. Let me keep my curves, my birthmark. I want to look like myself…,” she said.
The 32-year-old actress said people will keep saying, ‘You are not good enough’ but one should not pay attention to naysayers.
“People will say you are not attractive. People will say you are not skinny enough, not tall enough, not thick enough, not curvy enough, not white enough, not brown enough, not this enough. Well, I really hope you don’t feel that way about yourself, because then we’re all screwed.”
