Ugly Betty sure made a beautiful bride.

America Ferrera married longtime boyfriend Ryan Piers Williams Monday night in "an intimate setting amongst close friends and family," her rep said.

Guests included the her former Betty co-stars Vanessa Williams, Rebecca Romijn and Blake Lively (her Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants co-star).

The couple, who became engaged in June 2010, first met when Williams cast Ferrera in his student film at the University of Southern California.

"We kind of connected from the get-go on that professional level and that was something that really drew us to each other," Ferrera said.

"We have a shared passion for what we do and our work."

And now a shared passion for life. Congratulations!

The former is a global sensation, one of the most popular recording artists on the planet.

The latter is best known for portraying the title character of a canceled ABC comedy.

On paper, this fashion face-off between Beyonce Knowles and America Ferrera should not be close, as all signs indicate a clear advantage for Mrs. Jay-Z.

But stranger things have happened. Who would have thought Spencer Pratt might release a Heidi Montag sex tape, for instance? Okay, terrible example.

Still, it's up to readers, not resumes, to decide the fate of these beauties. Compare, contrast and then vote below...

The actress first met Williams at the University of Southern California when he cast her in his student film years ago. They've been inseparable since.

The first engagement rumors surrounding the couple were back in February 2007. They waited awhile to make it official, but have always gone strong.

On Wednesday, the actress sported her new diamond ring on the red carpet at the Edinburgh Film Festival screening of The Illusionist in Scotland.

All the best to the former Ugly Betty star and her future husband!

Is it too late to rename the series Pretty Betty?

As filming for ABC's Ugly Betty gets underway, the show has given its main character a serious makeover.

Played by America Ferrera, Betty Suarez has said goodbye to her braces and sayonara to her messy, curly hair.

In April, producer Silvio Horta warned fans about the impending new look. He said: “There’s going to be a progression in her look overall. It’ll still be Betty, but you’ll see some growth in that direction.”

That's for sure. Compare the before-and-after shots below:

Amid rumors of bad behavior on the set and having her number of appearances cut from six to four, Lindsay Lohan shined on last night's episode of Ugly Betty.

Reprising her role as Kimmie Keegan - who used to torment Betty Suarez (America Ferrera) in high school and now works with her at Mode - Lindsay found herself in familiar territory: acting like a diva in the celebrity gossip spotlight.

LiLo actually contributed some funny Ugly Betty quotes last night. Too bad she can't hold down a job in real life. Follow the jump for two additional photos ...

Reportedly, everyone on the set of Ugly Betty has seen Lindsay Lohan nude.

But we'll get to that in a moment.

Linds Action

According to The New York Post, Lohan's behavior on the set of the ABC show has been so abysmal that the series has cut the number of episodes she'll appear on from six to four.

“It was a mess. Lindsay would show up every day with an entourage of people," a source said. "She smoked 24/7, and after she left, they had to repaint her dressing room it was such a mess... [Lindsay] would obsessively cut pictures of herself out of the tabloids like she was creating some sort of scrapbook and refused to go on set until [America Ferrera] was there - it was a power play.”

We buy the entourage, and the smoking; but they had to repaint Lohan's dressing room? For what possible reason?

The insider said that a scene in a future Ugly Betty episode involves Ferrera's character pulling down the pants of Lohan's character; but when the action took place, “Lindsay wasn’t wearing any underwear,” and the entire crew learned why she's referred to as "Firecrotch."

However, a friend of Lindsay's countered that accusation:

"Lindsay wears underwear all the time now. She was wearing a G-string. And it was America’s fault. They were rehearsing the scene and America wasn’t supposed to pull Lindsay’s pants down - but she did. Lindsay was so embarrassed, she started crying.”

Are you sure you don't wanna diss Heroes and Grey's Anatomy while you're at it, America? Jealous much? They're just TV shows, lighten up.

It's hard to believe anyone would hate on awesome shows like The Hills, Gossip Girl and 90210, but America Ferrera is evidently not a fan.

Which may explain the eye-roll incident.

In any case, in Seventeen magazine, the Ugly Betty star calls out the aforementioned programs for a lack of "close, genuine female relationships."

"Like, if you're watching The Hills or 90210, all of the backstabbing shapes the way we act – you go to school, and you think that your job is to find a sworn enemy and be jealous of each other," America Ferrera said.

"I mean, I love Blake Lively, [her Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants co-star and the lead actress on Gossip Girl]; she’s a wonderful friend of mine, but shows like Gossip Girl kind of condition us to be mean."

America Ferrera knows girls can be mean, recalling how she's "worked with other girls before and it was pretty catty."

But working with Lively, Amber Tamblyn and Alexis Bledel in The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants and its sequel has been "one of the most wonderful experiences I’ve had with girl relationships," she says.

America Ferrera and Blake Lively recently paid a visit to Good Day LA to discuss their new movie, The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2.

But the conversation promptly switched to Gossip Girl, Lively's TV show and the recent subject of massive amounts of... well, gossip.

Gossip Girl has become so overexposed these days (maybe you've noticed), even America Ferrera can't hide her apparent disdain for it.

Here's an excerpt of it on The Soup. Watch America's expression!

Ugly Betty star America Ferrera is not engaged to her long-time boyfriend, filmmaker Ryan Piers Williams, her rep tells celebrity news magazines.

Online reports speculated she was engaged because the actress, 24, wore what looked like an engagement ring on the New York set of Ugly Betty.

Turns out, the ring could be part of a plot twist on show. Or maybe a gift from future Ugly Betty guest star Lindsay Lohan. Really, who knows!?

America Ferrera and Ryan Piers Williams: Just boyfriend-girlfriend.

Ryan Piers Williams, 26, is an aspiring director. They first met at University of Southern California, pre-Betty days, when he cast her in his student film.

Engagement or not, they are said to be house hunting (or were, at least) have a golden retriever named Buddy. That's good at least.

The actress - who has endorsed Hillary Clinton for president - will be starring in The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2, out in August.

Well, about half of it anyway. Which is pretty solid.

One young voter who has been squarely in the camp of Hillary Rodham Clinton throughout the 2008 presidential race is Ugly Betty star America Ferrera, 23.

What's Up Hillary?

The actress, a native Californian of Honduran descent, has been a vocal supporter of the former First Lady and attended a seminar called Breaking Barriers: Women in Politics at Bryn Mawr College in Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania, Saturday.

The Ugly Betty star, who also attended two other campaign events Saturday, was seen travelling in New York with boyfriend Ryan Piers Williams on Friday.

Hillary Clinton narrowly trails Illinois Sen. Barack Obama in the tight race for the Democratic presidential nomination - and celebrity endorsements - but is closing the gap in both departments. The Pennsylvania primary is April 22.
