Ferrera played the lead in Real Women Have Curves, a film that tackles body image issues and the challenges young women face navigating adolescence. In fact, these themes are central to many of Ferrera's projects.
The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants was Ferrera's highest profile role to date when it premiered in 2005. She teamed up with fellow starlets Alexis Bledel, Blake Lively and Amber Tamblyn. The four are friends off-screen, too!
