Playing EXCLUSIVE: Gina Rodriguez on Golden Globes' America Ferrera Mistake: If I Want to Get Mixed Up With Anyone, It's Her!

Gina Rodriguez manages to always be amazing.

After the Golden Globes mistakenly identified America Ferrera as the Jane the Virgin star on Twitter this morningduring the nomination announcement ceremony, ET caught up with Gina, who not only brushed off the mix-up, but took the opportunity to build up her fellow actress.

"I didn't hear anything until recently someone sent me an article, but who cares?" she explained.

"America's lovely," Gina said of the Ugly Betty star. "She's so beautiful and such a fantastic actress. If there's anybody I want to get mixed up with -- it's her for sure!"

"To me, it's like, whatever. We always make mix-ups in life, man," the actress added.

Gina is nominated for Best Actress in a Comedy for her work on Jane the Virgin, an award she won last year. We, personally, would love a repeat victory, if for no other reason than to have another one of her completely perfect, tear-jerking acceptance speeches.

"Thank you to my mom and my dad who taught me to dream big and to never stop dreaming," she said last year. "This award is so much more than myself, it represents a culture that wants to see themselves as heroes."

The 2016 Golden Globe Awards, hosted by Ricky Gervais, will air on Sunday, Jan. 10, 2016, on NBC at 8 p.m. EST.
