Naya Rivera Covers Latina Magazine's October 2013 Hollywood Hot List Cover!

On having a very public relationship with Big Sean, whom she first met on Twitter: “We know so many who are in the public eye dating somebody, and they ’re going in through back entrances and won’t make eye contact with each other. That’s just not us.”

On becoming comfortable with her mixed-race heritage: “It used to hold me back when I was younger. Casting directors didn’t understand what I was. I wasn’t black enough, or Latina enough—I kind of fell through the cracks.”

On being an icon to the LGBT community: “There are very few ethnic LGBT characters on television, so I am honored to represent them. I love supporting this cause, but it’s a big responsibility, and sometimes it’s a lot of pressure on me. ”
