PRO: Debuted in the 2002 film Real Women Have Curves, which tackled self-image issues. Winner of Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild awards for her role as Ugly Betty, the critically adored ABC comedy/drama.
CON: After debuting at # 9 in the television rankings, Betty has since failed to remain in the top 10, averaging at #20. Some critics have also wondered whether pert and adorable Ferrera is really ugly enough.
