America Ferrera to keep glasses

By Emily Tait

America Ferrera, the star of the hit US television series Ugly Betty, has claimed that she will continue to wear her trademark spectacles even after the show has finished its run.

The popular drama will come to an end in April and the actress said that although she is keen to get rid of the braces her character Betty Suarez sports, she has developed a love for the quirky glasses.

"Ugly Betty has been such a big part of my life for the last four years, like almost my entire adult life, and it"s been an enormous blessing. I love my cast and the crew and I love this character," she told Entertainment Tonight.

It is believed that Ferrera wants to keep the spectacles in order to remind her of her time on the show.

Director Tim Burton and actor Johnny Depp, who sports green contact lenses in the pair"s new film Alice in Wonderland, recently arrived at the premiere of the movie in similar rounded glasses.
