Grey’s Anatomy star Sara Ramirez discusses life, love, loss, body issues and sexuality as she graces the March cover of Latina magazine, which hits newsstands next week.

In her first in-depth interview in years, the Mexican-American actress opens up about ...

Battling depression: At one point, Ramirez says, she was feeling so down, she could barely muster up the energy to get out of bed and go to the set of Grey’s Anatomy.

“Somehow I managed to do it, but it wasn’t pretty. There were days that I would show up to work and come out the side of my face to people who didn’t deserve it.”

Body issues: “There’s a whole list of things you could worry about. Are you skinny enough? Talented enough? In all kinds of ways, I used to be really hard on myself.”

Being different: “I’ve never been very cookie cutter. If I choose something different from the status quo, it’s my responsibility and my choice to live my life that way.”

Tumultuous times on Grey’s Anatomy: “[I found myself] in the midst of a hurricane. So much time on Grey’s Anatomy was spent simply trying to figure out what kind of family I was walking into. There was so much drama, so much time wasted focusing on the wrong things.”
