America Ferrera is best known for her long-running role as the title character on the ABC series, Ugly Betty. While dressing up in a wig, oversize glasses, frumpy clothing, and big braces might make a few young actresses feel insecure -- and well, ugly -- America Ferrera would have it no other way. Although she was born a beauty, it seems that she was also born to play ugly. An award winner on the big screen and the small screen, America Ferrera is stepping down from her throne as one of TV's most influential nerds as her show winds down its successful run. America Ferrara Insures Her Smiles for Million dollars.
Lloyd’s of London, the world’s biggest insurance marketer, has reported that America Ferrera, the star of the hit television show “Ugly Betty,” has her smile insured for a whopping $10 million. Lloyd’s of London has a lengthy record of providing unusual insurance coverage for celebrities, including insuring Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards’ fingers.
The policy is said to cover Ferrera’s smile, including her teeth and gums. A spokesman for Lloyd’s of London said that she is “covered for any reasonable and necessary dental treatment costs or expenses that result from accidental injury during the term of her policy.”
The policy was taken out by Aquafresh White Trays.
Ferrera had this to say about the whole thing: “It’s very flattering to have my smile insured for $10 million; it’s not something that I ever imagined happening.”
The 28-year-old Ferrera is best known for her role as Betty Suarez on the aforementioned TV show. Her character is an ugly-duckling type, complete with a mouthful of big, metal braces. The actress and the show won numerous awards, including Golden Globes, People’s Choice Awards, Kids’ Choice Awards, and more.
The youngest child in her California family, America Ferrera had the odds of a professional acting career stacked against her success almost immediately. The divorce of her parents left her mom in charge of America and her five siblings, which made basic necessities and any kind of extracurricular activities extremely challenging. The family got through their tough times on meals comprised of tortillas, beans and rice, while Americabegan dreaming of a performance career when she was 7 after acting in Hamlet for a school performance. She continued to act in school productions of Oliver! (as the Artful Dodger) and during her time at El Camino Real High School, she became active in other theater events around the community.
