Sofía Vergara and her genes are at war — but that isn't stopping the bombshell from finding happiness in how she looks!
She does, however, have to put in more effort than not to keep that body looking hot!
"I used to think I was genetically blessed but now, at this age, I realise that I have to eat healthy and work out more - I never used to do that. I had to change my mentality a bit and learn moderation."
Moderation! You hear that?? That's what we always say, guys — and OBVS it's working for her!
"I think the concept of beauty in Latin America is different to that in Anglo countries. When I first started acting here [America], my publicist told me, 'You need to lose some weight because the other girls look better in the pictures because they're skinnier.' I said, 'Yeah, they look better in pictures, but I look better naked. What's your problem?' I've always enjoyed my curves."
We need more confidence like this in Hollywood, for sure. Leading ladies do not have to be rail thin for people to think they're beautiful!
It's such a shame that that mindset is so rampant that publicists, managers, and agents will all just flat out say that you need to change what you look like to survive.
Obviously, that's not the case — Sofia is doing JUST FINE on her hit TV show without having to cave!
