America Ferrera: Talks Interracial Relationships

America Ferrera and Lance Gross in Our Family Wedding

From the Toledo Blade- Visit Toledoblade.com

“‘I felt like Our Family Wedding was funny and had its bigger comedy moments, but, because of the underlying issues of race and this young couple being in love and having to deal with their families’ race issues, could also be really powerful and emotional,’ says Ferrera, who herself is of Honduran descent. ‘People have experienced this kind of thing. I have interracial-couple friends. I am in an interracial relationship. The two met when Ryan Piers cast America in a student film while they attended the University of Southern California.  As for the film, Our Family Wedding,  Fererra  just feels like  it is a story that her generation could really relate to.’
