The first time I heard “you look like America Ferrera” was after I saw Real Women Have Curves at a screening on campus. That was in 2002. I shrugged it off. I even shrugged it off a few weeks later we my mom, sister and I went to see the same film and we ran into my brother’s friend, Enrique.
Again, I heard, “I was watching the movie and kept thinking, she looks like Cindy.”
I just laughed, not quite seeing the resemblance. I mean, I don’t even see how my own sister and I resemble each other too much.
Five years later, I still get the comments. A few weeks ago, Jeff asked me “has anyone ever told you, you look like America Ferrera??”
