Actress Gina Rodriguez says she gets asked if she's really a virgin by strangers since she starred in 'Jane The Virgin'

'Jane The Virgin' star Gina Rodriguez gets asked if she's really a virgin all the time.

The 30-year-old actress plays religious 23-year-old hotel worker Jane Gloriana Villanueva who accidentally becomes artificially inseminated with her boss' sperm in the comedy series.

Since taking the part Gina admits total strangers have started asking her about her sex life.

Gina told Stylist magazine: "People ask me about my sex life all the time. Everyone wants to know if I'm really a virgin. But hey, I'm 30! Sometimes I'll walk into a room and someone will shout, 'Look, it's the virgin!' It's wildly inappropriate but I can see where their heart is."

Gina - whose parents are Puerto Rican - is very proud of the show because it offers an "authentic" perspective on Latino Americans.

The Golden Globe Best Actress winner said: "The show is an authentic take on Latino Americans, previous comedies have struggled to capture that perspective. When I was growing up there weren't many girls who looked like me. There were no women from Latino backgrounds who were lead roles on shows or who weren't overly-sexualised.

"Jane has changed all that. I want to take roles that open people's eyes about minorities."
