Green Celebrity Profile!
America Ferrera is no Ugly Betty in real life — although she does play her on TV.
In real life, she is a role model for other green celebrities and local residents of the state of New York who live in New York City.
She’s also a role model for other Hispanic actors, actresses, and models as well as for Latin live performance artists seeking fame in the Hollywood scene.
GREEN CELEBRITY: AMERICA FERRERA
It’s easy to have a celebrity crush on America Ferrara. She smart, she cute, she’s GREEN, and she’s super sweet.
She seems so sweet, doesn’t she? So open-hearted, so fresh-faced, so butter- wouldn’t-melt?
Anyone who has seen US comedy soap Ugly Betty on TV2 will know what I’m talking about. You look at actress America Ferrera, who plays Betty, and you think: that girl’s not acting! She is that person.
MTV News agrees and further reports on her green lifestyle:
There’s nothing unattractive about the “Ugly Betty” actress’ dedication to everyday sustainability!
America recently spoke out about how she keeps it green in NYC by composting, shopping for local and organic food, and riding her bike to cut down on carbon emissions.
(We’ll be hanging around the farmer’s market, hoping to catch a glimpse of her.)
That care and concern for other people’s well being and the environment in general is what caught our attention about this up and coming green celeb.
We hope to see her have continued success in all her acting projects — and to see her making more red carpet and green carpet appearances with increasing frequency!
