Ugly has never been thisbeautiful! As bushy-browed brace face Betty Suarez on ABC’s Ugly Betty, America Ferrera charmed audiences, made the endearingly hilarious series a must-see hit, and turned herself into a Golden Globe, SAG and Emmy Award-winning star.

The sixth and youngest child of Honduran immigrants, Ferrera got her big break in HBO’s Sundance darling, Real Women Have Curves, at age 16. Her breakthrough performance helped her land the teen girlfriend hit The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants before her Betty fame.

Ferrera, who lives with boyfriend Ryan Piers Williams, was saluted by Congress for providing a role model for young Latinas, while landing onPEOPLE’s Most Beautiful and Time‘s Most Influential lists.

Using Her Curves

In HBO’s Real Women Have Curves, Ferrera plays Ana Garcia, a first-generation Mexican American who wants to go to college instead of work at her family’s sewing business. She earns a Sundance Jury Award for Best Actress in the cross-cultural drama/comedy that deals with, among other issues, body image. “There are not many Latin-American role models in the entertainment business,” Ferrera tells USA Today. “All I had wa
sJennifer Lopez and Salma Hayek as role models, but I don’t look anything like them.”

Becoming Ugly

Ferrara, 22, dons bushy eyebrows, snap-on braces and frumpy frocks to play Betty Suarez, a less-than-attractive fashion magazine assistant with a heart of gold, in ABC’s Ugly Betty. The show is based of the popular Columbian telenovela, Yo Soy Betty Le Fea, brought to the states by executive producer and former Mexican telenovela star, Salma Hayek. “For me, it’s fine if Betty never morphs into the beautiful swan,” Ferrera tells New York Magazine, “I think she’s lovable as is. She is the most beautiful character on the show.”
