America Ferrera, known for her role in Ugly Betty, claims that opportunities for Latino actors in Hollywood are still limited, with roles often falling into stereotypes.

A study by the USC Annenberg Inclusion Initiative found that only a small percentage of lead roles in top-earning movies went to Hispanic or Latino actors.

“While I enjoy an incredible career full of opportunity that I have fought hard for and worked hard for, I know that the vast reality for Latinos in this industry is that it’s as difficult today as it was 16 years ago, or even 22 years ago when I started out,” Ferrera said.

“They are anomalies, these moments where Latinos get to shine,” she added.

“And, of course, we’ve had those moments, but I feel like we’ve all been waiting a really long time for the watershed.”

“It’s complicated to reconcile the almost fairy tale story of my journey with what I know is the reality for the vast majority of people like me.”

“It’s 2023, and I’m still the only one, which I think points exactly to the issue,” she said of her Emmy award.

“It took so long because the opportunities don’t exist.”
