America Ferrera Confirms She's a Boss, Not "Bossy"

Actress America Ferrera just directed her first television episode for her new show, "Superstore," and claims she's a boss.

And she's not wrong, either.

Ferrera took to "Jimmy Kimmel Live" where the late-night host asked her if she thought her cast mates respected her as a director. She answered saying she believes they had a good time.

He then questioned her directing character: "Are you bossy — in general are you like a bossy person?"

"No, I would just say like I'm a boss," Ferrera responded.

Kimmel inquired further by asking, "What is the difference between being bossy and being a boss?"

Ferrera handed it to him with a surge of feminist energy: "Being a woman."

She continued, "You get called a boss and I get called bossy. Right? That's the difference. But now I'm saying I'm a boss."

An outspoken advocate for women's rights, Ferrera is known to be an empowering voice for women and immigrants alike, as she is both. She spoke at the Women's March on Washington as well as at The 2016 MAKERS Conference.
