Gina did an interview and photoshoot for Yahoo Style. Check out the interview below. Outtakes have been added to our gallery!

“If we want to talk about real life, I slay, OK? Like, slaaayyy!” says Jane the Virgin actress Gina Rodriguez to Yahoo Style’s Joe Zee. But that’s not an answer anyone should be surprised by. At only 31, Rodriguez has already made a name for herself in the television industry, is the co-founder of Naja — a lingerie line with a female empowerment cause — and has won a Golden Globe Award for Best Actress.

In this episode of I Yahoo’d Myself, Rodriguez touches on everything from “how freaking stoked” she was to dance and sing with Britney Spears during an episode of her show to why makeup should be used “to just enhance our inner beauty” and how even she has fallen into Hollywood’s dangerous body image trap.

“What you realize is you need to enjoy each experience and enjoy each project,” Golden Globe winner tells TheWrap

While “Jane The Virgin” won Gina Rodriguez her first Golden Globe and is unequivocally her breakout moment, the actress has had brushes with fame before.

In 2012, Rodriguez earned raves at the Sundance Film Festival for her lead performance in indie “Filly Brown,” and the actress admits she herself even bought into the hype.

“With ‘Filly Brown,’ I thought — it’s Sundance, and I’m going to be this It Girl, I’m going to be like Jennifer Lawrence. I was ready to play a superhero! I’m ready to do this!” Rodriguez told TheWrap. “And it didn’t look like that. What you realize is you need to enjoy each experience and enjoy each project, and everything comes to an end. It’s not about what that’s supposed to lead to, it’s not about what your career is then supposed to look like.”

How Rodriguez’s career looks like now is brighter than ever. The CW has embraced its risky pickup of a drama based on a Venezuelan telenovela — with all the crazy twists and turns to match — and even used Rodriguez’s own Golden Globe acceptance speech transcript as a cornerstone of the show’s Emmy campaign.

On top of the awards attention, Rodriguez also landed her largest film role to date, as one of the leads in Peter Berg‘s next movie, “Deepwater Horizon,” opposite Mark Wahlberg. She’s filming it now, in between seasons on “Jane.”

In an interview, Rodriguez discussed how far she’s come since “Filly Brown,” the pressures she faces now that she’s becoming a bigger star, and why she’s glad to be trading in Jane’s fake belly for a real baby next season.

We’ve known since “Filly Brown” that you were destined for a breakout at some point. Was there something about “Jane The Virgin” in the beginning that felt to you like this is the one?
I really learned a lot about myself after “Filly Brown.” I learned that everything that’s come across my path and every experience that I’ve had has contributed to my character as a human being and as an artist. Everything’s going to end, everything’s going to have an end chapter, so if you’re enjoying that experience, if you’re enjoying that project, you’re not worried about what the rest of it is going to look like or where you’re supposed to go from there. I learned a lot from that because that’s what I thought was going to happen.

Then with “Jane,” I was being told time and time again the premise is silly and the title, oh my god it’s a telenovela, but I felt the strength and I knew what she (creator and showrunner Jennie Urman) had written and I knew what we had done, and it was like the last thing people thought of this project. And this project has given me huge wings to fly, and I’m so grateful for that. But I’m going to do the same thing, I’m just going to enjoy it and learn from it. “Jane” will eventually have an end chapter and I want to make sure I’m not letting anything go by. I’m not going to worry about what it’s going to lead to but more what it’s doing for my life right now.
