I would rather Jump Out of a Plane than go to the Dentist

We all know going to the dentist can be scary, but for “Jane the Virgin” star Gina Rodriguez, she would rather jump out of a plane. Gina Rodriguez freely admits her fear of the dentist during an interview with David Letterman saying, “When I was a kid, I had a dentist that would strap me down… I was a little wild as a young’un (sic)… (but) I was traumatized. So I’d go to the dentist and I’m like, ‘No! I didn’t do it! I’m not crazy! I brush my teeth!’”

Gina is open about how that one experience still haunts her today and provokes her to do anything she can to get out of a dental appointment. She tells the story about when her friend challenged to overcome her fear of sky diving instead of going to her regularly scheduled dental appointment. Needless to say, she quickly cancelled her dental appointment, she tells David Letterman,“I love to do something that scares me at least once a day… When I have dentist’s appointment I usually choose jumping out of a plane…I had a dentist’s appointment a few months ago. The dentist scares me so much my friend told me, ‘OK, so how much does the dentist scare you?’ I said, ‘The dentist scares me so much, I’d rather jump out of a plane.”
