The Jane The Virgin star admits she has always admired the way Jewish celebrities and movie people look after each other in Tinseltown, and she wishes her people would do the same.

"One thing that I love about Jewish culture is that anthill effect," she tells Latina magazine. "Every ant brings food to the anthill and everybody eats.

"Sadly our culture has been living the crab-in-the-barrel effect. We're so afraid there isn't enough room for all of us that we fight to get to the top. We don't need to do that. There's room for all of us. We're stronger in numbers."
