It’s painful being curvy.
That’s what actress Sofia Vergara reveals in a new interview in The EDIT, an online fashion magazine.
Vergara says that her tight dresses often cause her pain because, among other things, of her well-endowed upper body.
The blunt Colombian said to the magazine: “People will often say that I wear the same thing on the red carpet, but I know my body: it’s very voluptuous and I’ve got the boobs of a stripper.”
“They’re a 32DDD and because they’re real, they’re everywhere, so I need my dresses to have structure — and under armor. There is so much going on under my dresses that I bleed at the end of award ceremonies.”
It’s gotten to the point that she’s actually entertaining a surgical solution.
“In 10 years I think it would be good to have a reduction,” she said, according to EDIT. “I don’t think it’s even going to be an option not to [have surgery], because I’m going to start having back pains. I wouldn’t make them too small — just enough that I don’t end up looking like an old stripper.”
But she wasn’t all negative in the interview. She gushed about her new hubby, Magic Mike star Joe Maganiello, whom she wed last November.
Vergara, who is 43, and has a 23-year-old son, said she’d like to have a child with Maganiello, who has no children.
“I became a mother very young – at 20 – so I feel like I’ve been a mother my whole life, but I love that," she said. "Now that I’m 43 and my son [Manolo, with first husband Joe Gonzalez] is 23, it’s funny to see some of my girlfriends raising young kids. In the US, women postpone motherhood, but in Latin America most of my friends have kids my son’s age.
“I wouldn’t mind another child: my husband is younger than me and he wants kids so we’re trying to figure out what we’re going to do,” Vergara said. “The idea of doing it all again doesn’t scare me but, hey, it’s not like it’s going to happen naturally, is it?”
Vergara conceded that her character, Gloria, in "Modern Family" perpetuates a stereotype of Hispanics that some have criticized. But she challenges the notion that stereotypes are necessarily inaccurate or negative.
“I’m not afraid of them, and they don’t have to be bad, either," she said of 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 sexy and are really involved with their families: that’s Gloria!"
