VIDEO: What's America Ferrera Planning for Her 26th Birthday?

Hint: The busy How to Train Your Dragon star has zzzz's on her mind

She's turning 26 on April 18, but don't expect America Ferrera -- who's voicing a role as a feisty dragon slayer in the animated movie How to Train Your Dragon (which hits theaters Friday) -- to be attending a high-wattage party in her honor. "I will be done with the show in two weeks, so I think some sleep is going to be a gift that I give myself," the Ugly Betty star (whose ABC show's series finale is on April 14) tells iVillage.

Watch our exclusive video with the actress to find out the best reaction she's gotten from fans, what she looks for in a guy (Not that she's looking! Ferrera lives with longtime boyfriend Ryan Piers Williams) and why her Dragon costars Jay Baruchel, Gerard Butler and Craig Ferguson kept her laughing.
