Not Ugly: The actress has lost the awkward little-girl braces and horn-rimmed glasses from her Ugly Betty days. America Ferrera, 37, is now glamming the world with her curvaceous body

Ferrera told People magazine on Thursday that the cosmetic company’s selection ‘feels surreal.’

‘Can I borrow your time machine,’ she wrote on an Instagram post.  

‘I think if you were to go back and tell 17-year-old Gotta Kick It Up, Real Women Have Curves America, or even 9-year old America, 10-year old America, that there would be a place for her in the mainstream narrative about beauty, she would pass out and faint and not understand,’ Ferrera said in the interview with People.

She said that the narrative on beauty is expanding and has been bowled over by the realization that she is a CoverGirl. ‘It’s Crazy,’ she said.
