Hello everyone, April 21th, Gina went on the set of The Ellen DeGeneres Show to promote ‘Jane The Virgin’ which I reminded her is renewed for a season 4. She enjoyed her passage to express her boyfriend for several months, Joe LoCicero as well as The trip to Thailand that they made at the end of the year and her passion for boxing, a hereditary gene ’cause her father is a great boxer too. + HQ photos are available in the gallery.
Gina opened up about her passion for Muay Thai boxing and her hopes to book an amateur fight soon. “I love Muay Thai. I love fighting. I’ve been boxing since I’ve been 3,” she told DeGeneres. “I wanted to learn something new so I went [to Thailand].” The host then asked if we will be seeing Rodriguez in an upcoming fight. “I kind of want to … I want to do an amateur fight,” she explained. “I want to fight. I want to see what it’s like.” – “I’ll tell you what it’s like, you’re going to get kicked in the face,” Ellen joked. “Or if I’m good, I won’t,” Rodriguez responded.
About her boyfriend Joe LoCicero – “I have a boyfriend, whose awesome,” Gina said. “Whose like the coolest guy I’ve ever met… He’s very Italian.” Gina also opened up about a recent trip to Thailand that she took with Joe and how she was bit by a monkey. She had to get eight rabies shots after the incident! “Well, that’s the little guy that bit me,” she says after DeGeneres shows a picture from their trip. “I had one peanut left. I pass the monkey the peanut and then I turn my back and it latches onto my back and I was, like, ‘the monkey just bit me.’”
Hello everyone, Gina partnered with LUNA on an Equal Pay Day campaign, which asks both men and women to fight against the gender pay gap. Playing off of Gina’s passion for boxing, the brand is debuting an equality video that follows Rodriguez for a day of training in the ring. Her strength, determination and resilience shine as an example to women everywhere to keep moving forward in the journey for equality and pay parity.
LUNA has always believed in the power of women and a world where equal is equal. This Equal Pay Day, LUNA is proud to partner with LeanIn.Org to champion women and show why today and every day, women deserve their 20 percent.
“I am proud to partner with LUNA to raise awareness for the gender pay gap – a real issue far too many women face,” said Gina. “If you are capable of doing a job, there is no reason why you should get paid any less than anyone else doing the exact same job. Together with LUNA, we’re raising awareness for equal pay, and empowering women everywhere to never settle for the status quo.”
“Women on average are paid 20 percent less than men, and Black and Hispanic women are paid even less. This hurts women, families and our economy,” said LeanIn.Org president Rachel Thomas. “We’re proud to partner with LUNA, a vocal supporter of women’s equality, to highlight the unfairness of the gender pay gap because we can’t get to equality until women are paid fairly for their work.”Discover the full interview of Gina where she answers many questions about ELLE (link) and also discover a little more the history of ‘Luna’, of ‘The American Association of University Women’ and ‘LeanIn.Org’ (link).
