SNAPSHOT; GINA RODRIGUEZ FOR WOMEN'S HEALTH MAGAZINE MAY 2016

The beautiful and delectable Gina Rodriguez is on the cover of Women's Health Magazine, May 2016 and she is pulling some punches.


Gina Rodriguez isn’t your typical actress or cover star. Besides starring in the hit TV series Jane the Virgin, this 31-year-old Golden Globe winner is an advocate for social justice issues like diversity in television and body positivity. She’s also living with Hashimoto’s disease, which impacts the thyroid and causes chronic fatigue and weight gain.



Gina is known for channeling her pain and frustrations into her art, and harnessing her inner strength to stand up for her beliefs in interviews and on social media.


 “I’m trying to use my social media as a way to communicate that I’m flawed and that I’m okay with it,” Gina tells Women’s Health. “It’s a very strange feeling to be okay with a little cellulite or a little extra anything. I don’t look at it and feel terrified anymore, and my confidence changed because of that. I carry myself differently.”
