Gina Rodriquez first won us over with her great work on "Jane the Virgin," her positive attitude, and tear-inducing award speeches, but when she gave one of her red carpet gowns to a high school student to wear to prom, she cemented her status as our imaginary BFF.

Recently, she got a haircut that had people talking -- the entire right side of her head was shaved! We dug her edgy look, but we were even more impressed by her wise words about beauty. She posted this photo of her new 'do with a powerful caption.

I cut my hair for a film and there is nothing more freeing then realizing your beauty exists from within. I am not my hair. I am not my weight. I am not my skin color. I am love, I want to be love with every interaction, with every decision I make for myself, with every failure and success. You should try it. I dare you. Let go of what you think would make you more beautiful and discover you have all you need already inside.

It's nice to hear someone in Hollywood talk about inner beauty, right? Way to go, Gina!
