Quote of the Day

America Ferrera, on Latina stereotypes in Hollywood:

The thing about entertainment is that people want to label you right away, because it’s easier for them to say, O.K., my brain now knows what you are. Latinas have struggled in Hollywood for a very long time to be seen as something other than the stereotypical maid, gardener, cholo, Pregnant Girl No. 5. I’ve been on those auditions. It’s about getting rid of those labels.
