Ugly Betty star America Ferrera told Seventeen [Via Access Hollywood] that she believes there are many TV shows that do more harm than good: ‘Close, genuine female relationships are not what generally gets depicted in movies and TV shows.
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.’
On ‘Travelling Pants’ costar Blake Lively: ‘I mean, I love Blake; she’s a wonderful friend of mine, but shows like ‘Gossip Girl’ kind of condition us to be mean. One of the most wonderful experiences I’ve had with girl relationships was working with them on ‘Sisterhood,’ I’d worked with other girls before
and it was pretty catty.On friendship: ‘It was so empowering to make girls your friends
instead of your competitors. What I’ve learned is, don’t waste your
time judging people, because more often than not, you’re off base.
you’d be shocked to know what they think about you, where you meet
someone and they’re like, ‘I thought you were stuck-up.’ And you’re
like, ‘What?!? I’ve been sitting here waiting for you to talk to me!”
Do YOU think Gossip Girl conditions people to be mean?
