America Ferrera Isn’t A Latina Sexpot

HOLLYWOOD (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – America Ferrera believes Latinas should strive to be like her Ugly Betty character rather than a stereotypical Latin sex symbol.

Ferrera recently won the Entertainer of the Year award at the 2008 ALMA Awards for her role as homely Betty Suarez on the hit series.

Although her character isn’t a typical hot, Latin sexpot, Ferrera says it’s what’s on the inside that really counts.

She argues, “Betty Suarez is one of the most beautiful characters that has ever been on television. She’s heroic, strong and confident. I think it’s an incredible role for Latinas and an incredible image to portray.”

Ferrera is currently in New York City filming Ugly Betty’s third season and admits that the only thing ugly about working in the Big Apple is the weather.

She says, “I miss the Los Angeles weather. It’s great visiting California and having a perfect L.A. day!”
