Gina Rodriguez knows she’s not perfect.

“I work in an industry where I am constantly being told, ‘You’re not skinny enough. You’re not tall enough. You’re not ethnic enough,’ ” the Jane the Virgin star tells PEOPLE. “Being constantly told that you are not enough can wear down any woman – any person, period.”

But Rodriguez has always been able to turn to her parents – Puerto Ricans who moved to Chicago to raise Rodriguez, 30, and her two older sisters – for inspiration when she’s feeling down.

“My father was always very honest with us – and maybe crude at times. He prepared us for the game that is society,” she says of her dad Gino, who is a prominent representative for the Teamsters. “He prepared us to be able to look at billboards and magazines and say, ‘This is not the only body type that is beautiful.’ He would encourage us to find our beauty and love our beauty and accept our beauty as what God gave us.”

Gina Rodriguez has always known she wanted to be a performer – even if she didn’t always look the part.

“I was a huge tomboy,” the Jane the Virgin star tells PEOPLE about growing up in Chicago as the youngest of three daughters born to native Puerto Rican parents.

“I remember being 6 years old – I was probably wearing joggers and an oversized T-shirt – and I saw these little girls in sequins outfits smiling and dancing at the Puerto Rican Day parade. I was like, ‘I want to be in those little sequin dresses.’ ”

Rodriguez, now 30, joined a dance troupe and continued to perform through high school, but it wasn’t long before she set her sights on acting as well.

When she was only 13, she ventured across town on her own to audition for a commercial against her parents’ wishes.

“I got the parent next to me to sign my parental consent form so they didn’t know that I didn’t have a parent with me,” Rodriguez says. “I ended up booking the commercial, so they called my parents. I thought I was going to get in so much trouble. But I was going to get paid for the commercial so they said, ‘Fine. You can do it if you put the money towards college.’ I said, ‘Done deal, baby seal. Let’s do this.’ ”

Fresh off her Golden Globe win for “Jane the Virgin,” Gina Rodriguez has landed the female lead opposite Mark Wahlberg in Peter Berg’s “Deepwater Horizon,” multiple individuals familiar with the project have told TheWrap.

Lionsgate and Participant Media are teaming with Lorenzo di Bonaventura on “Deepwater Horizon,” which chronicles the 2010 BP oil spill.

A representative for Lionsgate declined to comment on the casting.

Wahlberg is set to play Mike Williams, an electrician aboard the doomed oil rig, while Rodriguez is in early talks to play Andrea Fleytas.

Fleytas was helping to operate the oil rig’s sophisticated navigation machinery when she noticed a glaring oversight — that no one had issued a distress signal to the outside world. She grabbed the radio and attempted to contact the Coast Guard, for which she was reprimanded.

Kristen Stewart, who was just cast in Woody Allen‘s new movie, was also eyed for the role, according to insiders.

Berg’s “The Kingdom” collaborator Matthew Michael Carnahan wrote the script, and the film is scheduled for release on Sept. 30, 2016.

Rodriguez is a NYU graduate who got her start on “The Bold and the Beautiful” before landing the lead in the acclaimed Sundance drama “Filly Brown.” She currently stars on the CW’s hit dramedy “Jane the Virgin,” for which she won the Golden Globe for best actress in a comedy or musical.

“Deepwater Horizon” will serve as Rodriguez’s studio movie debut, though her indie credits include “Sleeping With the Fishes” and the upcoming drama “Sticky Notes” with Ray Liotta.

Rodriguez is represented by APA, Primary Wave Entertainment and Jackoway Tyerman.
