Here is America Ferrara's cover for Seventeen Magazine October 2008 issue. You can view a "behind-the-scenes" video clip of the shoot through the Seventeen website via this link.
There was some controversy recently when the star of Ugly Betty commented on what she thinks is the negative aspects of the female characters on the CW's Gossip Girl and the effect it has on young female viewers.
A snippet of her statements to US Magazine -
"Close, genuine female relationships are not what generally gets depicted in movies and TV shows," the "Ugly Betty" star told Seventeen. "Like, if you're watching "The Hills" or "90210", all the backstabbing shapes the way we act – you go to school, and you think your job is to find a sworn enemy and be jealous of each other."
Ferrera said she's "worked with other girls before and it was pretty catty," but that wasn't the case during the filming of the movie "Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants."
"I was like, 'I'm just going to show up to work and be professional – not their best friend,'" she reportedly told the magazine about how she felt before they started shooting. "But a couple of weeks into shooting, Amber [Tamblyn] and I started talking. She's a hippie, and I thought we had nothing in common – and now she's one of my closest friends!"
She also had kind words to say about co-star Blake Lively, while slamming the show she stars in.
"I mean, I love Blake; she’s a wonderful friend of mine, but shows like "Gossip Girl" kind of condition us to be mean," Ferrera said."
