Cierra Ramirez is a Girl in Progress
The movie revolves around Ansiedad (Cierra Ramirez), who just wants to be older. Her single mother, Grace (Eva Mendes), is busy working all the time, leaving Ansiedad plenty of alone time to figure out her life. Well, at least try to. The flick follows her on her quest to figure out who she is, who she wants to be and whether being older is really what she wants.
The perfect Mother’s Day outing, we can’t wait to catch the flick. And we were just as pumped to chat up its rising star. Here, Cierra spills all about her own mom. Awww…
GL: Why should every girl check out Girl In Progress?
Cierra: Anyone can relate to it—daughters and mothers. There is a ton of fashion and Ansiedad goes through so many changes, from nerdy to bad girl. I got to [see] it with my mom and we bonded after watching it.
Yes. She was always making bets with me. She bet that I wouldn’t eat a whole packet of mayonnaise and made it a big deal so like everyone was watching and I ate that thing. You can’t make a bet with me because I will do it.
What’s the best piece of advice that your mom has ever given you?
To just be the best me that I could possibly be and not depend on anyone else’s approval.
What about one of the most embarrassing things she’s ever done to you?
When we’re in the car with friends and there is music, she will make it a point to sing every line. I don’t know how, but she memorizes every line of a rap song. She’s big on Lil Wayne and Nicki Minaj. It’s embarrassing!
That’s hilarious! Aside from rap, what’s one song that always reminds you of your mom?
“The Best Day” by Taylor Swift. I have been through all of that with my mom at one point. Taylor just finds a way to let me relate to everything. There is always a Taylor Swift song for a mood you’re in.
What about one movie you love watching with her?
Any Nicholas Sparks movie. We are both very emotional. We can’t go through any of those without crying.
If you could snag something from your mom’s closet right now, what would you take?
I constantly steal her scarves. And she has lots of cool jewelry.
