Cosmetics brand Olay, owned by the conglomerate Proctor & Gamble, has signed the Imagen Award-winning actress to a contract, with the intentions to make her the spokesperson of Olay Body’s upcoming 14 Day Skin Transformation campaign. This is an exciting and groundbreaking opportunity for her.
It’s the beauty giant’s first partnership with a trans, Latinx woman. MJ tells: “When they called me, I screamed on the phone, because Olay is one of the leading forces in beauty,” Rodriguez told the style publication, “I was like ‘oh my god, am I really being considered for this, am I worthy?”
Rodriguez has become a ‘red carpet staple’ and had her fashion sense shared in Vogue and Allure, so it’s not far-fetched to think she would make a successful brand ambassador for the billion-dollar cosmetics group.
“A lot of girls like myself — trans women — we don’t get the opportunity to have open dialogue, let alone be in partnership with organizations like this,” she remarked. “I’m stepping forward into the future with confidence and I am loving my soft and moisturized skin. I am so excited to work with Olay Body on this campaign…I am so thankful to have the opportunity to show other trans women of color everywhere that they are seen and that they are worthy.”
Rodriguez has also appeared on Nurse Jackie, The Carrie Diaries, and Luke Cage in addition to headlining a regional production of Little Shop of Horrors. Last month, Outfest gave her their Individual Trailblazer Award to “pay tribute to an artist whose recent star-making success comes after years of hard work and acclaimed performances on stage.”
