Sofia Vergara heats up the November cover of Lucky magazine out October 9th. She is one of the funniest and most beautiful women on television; she’s also the highest paid. Sofia opens up to Lucky about her secret to success, what she really thinks of her bodacious body and why she doesn’t care about looking intelligent.
Highlights from the interview:
On what she thinks of her famously bodacious body: “I know [my breasts] have opened doors for me, let’s be real. But I so hate when I see Gisele and she is wearing a tiny little tank top with no bra, like, ‘Oh, I just threw this on, I look so cute.’ If I wore that I would look like I was pregnant, or a fat stripper.”
On what she really thinks of her breasts: “Such a pain in the ass,” Vergara exclaims.
On why she likes her fiancé, Nick Loeb: “Because we are fucking professionals at doing nothing. We like to sit around on the beach and drink wine and talk shit.”
On her new engagement ring: “It is perfection. If it was bigger, it would be too big to wear,” “But if it was smaller, I would not like.”
On having another child: “He is younger than me, 37, and he never had them. So if he wants one, maybe I will have.”
On turning 40: “Turning 40 is horrible,” Vergara confides with a trademark raspy giggle. “People that say it isn’t are full of shit.”
On why she’s not afraid to look ugly: “If you are afraid of not looking beautiful you can’t be funny. You will just be like a gimmick of someone funny, or setting up a joke for someone else.” Is this easy for her to do? Her usual cat-that-ate-the- canary expression turns serious as she considers this, and finally says, “I was never insecure of my looks, but I never think, ‘Oh I’m so spectacular.’ Maybe that helps.”
On her secret to success: “I think you can’t care too much, or you will get nowhere. You take a woman who is the same as me, the same body, the same face, the same whatever, and we could go to the same audition, and I would get it and she wouldn’t because I was like, if they want me, they want me and if they don’t, well, that’s okay. But of course you also have to move your ass.”
On the inspiration for her clothing line for Kmart: “I met all these women there who saw all the fun, colorful, comfortable stuff I was wearing and said, “Where did you get that, it is so cute.” Vergara says. “And I knew I had access to the designers and I wanted to give the woman who is saving her grocery money for a cute outfit something good that she can afford.”
On why she became an actress: “Truthfully,” Vergara says, “I always thought of acting as a way to get a clothing line, and as an experiment.”
