America Ferrera and Julia Stiles are headed to London’s West End

17 October 2010

Ugly Betty aka America Ferrera is set to come to London for her theatre debut. Reasons to be Pretty is scheduled to open in March 2011.

The Neil LaBute award-nominated play has similarities to the American show which made Ferrera a worldwide name. It about people being drawn to the superficial, and how we all get seduced by the surface.

The Bourne Ultimatum star Julia Stiles is also in the running for a role in the play that was shown off Broadway a few years ago.

America said:

"It's so reassuring to have a heroine who triumphs with more than just what she has on the outside.

"To me, the tragedy about this whole image-obsessed society is that young girls get so caught up in just achieving that, they forget they have so much more to offer the world."
