Gina Rodriguez is being heralded as a real-life fairy godmother…
The 31-year-old Puerto Rican actress and Jane the Virgin star has sent one of her fans the black Badgley Mischka gown she was wearing when she won her first Golden Globe for Best Actress, Television Comedy in January 2015.
Back in January, according to Us Weekly, Jessica Casanova, a fan of the Jane the Virgin star, tweeted Rodriguez, saying that she’d love to wear the Zac Posen gown Rodriguez wore to this year’s Golden Globes gown to her high school prom.
To Casanova’s surprise, Rodriguez responded. “Where do you live? I only own my first Globes dress, the one from last year … Maybe we can make this happen,” Rodriguez tweeted back.
Casanova, who lives in Buffalo, New York, was thrilled, saying she’d be honored to wear it to her prom. This past week Casanova let Rodriguez know that she received the dress.
Rodriguez responded, “Yay! Do you like it?” She also requested that Casanova share a photo of her in the dress.
The teen replied, “Of course, it is the most beautiful dress I have ever seen. I so love it, and, yes, I will send you millions of pictures.”
That generous gesture has led several publications to call Rodriguez a real-life fairy godmother.
