“I just don’t believe in all that drama.”
Sofia Vergara, who was among 2015’s highest-paid female actors on television, recently sat down with Net-a-Porter’s The Edit magazine for a wide-ranging interview that included topics like diversity, objectification, and b*obs.
And why not? We’re always down for a good bo*b chat.
She had a whole lot to say! So here, in no particular order, are some of the things she shared:
1. On watching herself age onscreen:
“It just makes me want to kill myself, but what can I do? I’ll be sad when the wolf whistles stop.”
2. On being funny:
“You have to make more of an effort when you’re not beautiful, which is maybe why there aren’t many beautiful women who can laugh at themselves. I never thought that I was that spectacular growing up.”
3. On stereotypes:
“I mean, Gloria [Delgado-Pritchett, played by Vergara in Modern Family] is an amazing character: a really good woman with this hilarious accent, so why criticize her for being a stereotype? Plus, all the Latinas I know are loud, they dress s*xy and are really involved with their families: that’s Gloria!”
4. On diversity in media:
“I’m really not one to complain. I mean, seriously, how dare I! Here I am on prime-time television with this stupid accent, I can’t trash anyone. It would be so ungrateful of me because, trust me, I’ve been treated like a queen. Of course [the opportunities] can’t compare to an American or Caucasian woman’s, but things are changing.”
5. On objectification:
“I’ve never understood why women get so offended [by being objectified]. I just don’t believe in all that drama, which is why I’ve made a whole joke out of it. I am secure enough not to take it all that seriously, and I like to laugh at myself. My husband played a male stripper in Magic Mike – do you think he was offended by [the objectification]?”
6. On the possibility of getting a br*ast reduction:
“I wouldn’t make them too small – just enough that I don’t end up looking like an old stripper.”
