Gina Rodriguez had a major fangirl moment while filming Deepwater Horizon. But, the Jane the Virgin star told HipHollywood at the film’s New Orleans premiere that it wasn’t just over her co-star Mark Wahlberg, but pretty much the entire cast.

“I was fanning out all over the place,” laughed Rodriguez. “It was kind of awesome, everyone was so kind and so gracious.”

But, to her credit, there is some major star power in the Peter Berg-directed drama, including Kurt Russell, Kate Hudson and John Malkovich. In the film, which recounts 2010’s disastrous oil rig explosion in the Gulf of Mexico, Rodriguez plays the tough-as-nails dynamic positioning officer.

She told us she fought very hard for the role because it’s one you don’t see many Latina women playing on the big screen.

To say Wonder is a must see movie is an understatement! Not only will the film touch you and inspire you to be a better person, it will also entertain you from start to finish.

But don’t take our word for it. HipHollywood sat down with the film’s stars Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson who shared their excitement to bring this heartwarming story to life and how they channeled their real-life parenting skills into the role.

“I think we felt a responsibility to be authentically parents and authentically parents to these two kids, said the 50 year old mother of three. “And I think that’s why you really believe these four people are family and are really having this experience together.”

In the film based on the NY times best seller, Roberts and Wilson play the parents of a teenage daughter (Izabela Vidovic) and 10-year-old boy (Jacob Tremblay) with facial differences entering mainstream elementary school for the first time.

When asked if they had any advice for their ten year old selves, Roberts said: “I have a ten year old son and I tell him to run.”

Meanwhile Wilson says he remembers 5th grade vividly, and enjoyed having his brother Andrew Wilson at the same school to protect him. “It helped so much having an older brother who was already at the school, so that would be the advice I’d give, have a cool older brother.”

Wonder hits theaters November 17, just one day before Wilson’s 49th birthday.
