America Ferrera and her 2 dogs

America Ferrera and a friend walk her two dogs at the Madison Square Park dog run during a break from filming "Ugly Betty" in New York City on Dec. 5, 2008. More recently, Ferrera has been trying to lead a greener life. "I'm big on composting. I’m hoping to build a garden once I get into my apartment that has a terrace,” she told MNN at the premiere of her movie How to Train a Dragon, who has found it easier to live greener since she moved to New York. “I walk and ride my bike more than getting in cabs or driving. Also, I’ve started eating locally and organically, going to the green market and supporting local farmers.”
