One more reason to love América Ferrera: Here she is joining the striking "Ugly Betty" writers outside the Raleigh Studios in Hollywood. "The issues coming up with the actors' contracts are very similar to what the writers are dealing with right now, and we have to stay united and stand strong within the creative community for what we believe is fair," América told reporters, according to E! Online. She added: "I've heard a lot of stuff about the writers getting flack because they're greedy or because they want too much. And the truth is that these are honest, hardworking people, and they're not all rolling in dough. They deserve compensation for the wonderful work they bring to the table." ¡Órale!

Not to be outdone, the writers were reportedly shouting, "Don't be greedy! Don't be petty! You won't get your Ugly Betty!" Here's hoping this all gets resolved soon.
