Gina Rodriguez may appear confident with her curves, but she's the first to admit that she's caved to the pressure to be thin.
"Of course I've fallen into the pressure," she tells Joe Zee during "I Yahoo'd Myself." "100%, I have fallen into the culture. 'If you look like this swimsuit model, then you're hot and everybody's going to want you, money's going to flow through and everything's going to be grand.' That's bulls--t."
Despite dealing with the critics, the "Jane the Virgin" star has learned to embrace her imperfections.
"You go to television and film and it does add ten pounds," she adds. "I don't look like a skinny mini and the truth is, that's okay too. That is beautiful also."
"If we want to talk about real life, I slay, OK? Like, slaaayyy!" the outspoken actress declares.
The Golden Globe winner admits that feeling beautiful in your skin is all about enhancing your best features.
"The idea of makeup and hair is just to enhance our inner beauty, not to cover up or deny that our palette that we begin with is not freaking awesome," she explains.
The actress has been tapped as co-founder and partner of Naja, a year-old lingerie line with major ambitions to help women and the environment.
"We want all women to feel beautiful regardless of what the media tells us is beautiful," Rodriguez says of the lingerie line. "We also want women to understand that outer beauty is not a measure of self worth; power comes from within."
