America Ferrera isn't a fan of The Hills or Gossip Girl.
"Close, genuine female relationships are not what generally gets depicted in movies and TV shows," she says in the October issue of Seventeen.
"Like, if you're watching The Hills or 90210, all the backstabbing shapes the way we act - you go to school, and you think your job is to find a sworn enemy and be jealous of each other," she goes on.
Adds Ferrera, 24: "I mean, I love Blake [Lively, her Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants co-star]; she's a wonderful friend of mine, but shows like Gossip Girl kind of condition us to be mean."
The Ugly Betty star knows girls can be mean, she says, recalling how she has "worked with other girls before and it was pretty catty."
