An avid Star Wars fan since age seven, when her father first showed her Star Wars: Episode VI Return of the Jedi, Gutierrez is the namesake of Gooti Terez, a character designed to resemble her from "Iron Squadron," the sixth episode of the third season of Star Wars Rebels.
In July 2018, Gutierrez received online abuse on Twitter after RebelForce Radio posted an altered photo of her posing with a mug saying "Fanboy Tears." In response, StarWars.com severed its relationship with RebelForce Radio.
