Sofia Vergara On How Her Looks Affect Her Career: 'I Can't Just Play An Ordinary Girl'

Sofia Vergara keeps it cool and casual as she steps out to make a trip to Herve Leger on Monday (March 30) in West Hollywood, Calif.

The day after, the 42-year-old Modern Family actress was spotted holding onto a protein shake as she made her way out of the gym after her cross fit class.

Sofia recently opened up about how her looks have affected her career decisions.

“I realized that having a good figure is an advantage on TV and getting attention and publicity,” Sofia expressed (via Cosmopolitan). “But it also means you can’t play more normal kinds of roles. I can’t just play an ordinary girl. So I try to find roles that let me capitalize on my looks and my personality and advance my career that way.”

FYI: Sofia is wearing Current/Elliott jeans.

    Quite arrogant statement to make. She is pretty, but nothing special, especially without make up. I live in her home city (Barranquilla, Colombia) and I see women more beautiful than her every day.

  • Effy

    She’s pretty, but I never understood why some people called her beautiful.

  • Guest

    I think she’s saying this stuff to cover up the fact that she has limited range so far and doesn’t get offered different roles. I see her doing the loud, spunky latina all the time. And she let herself be put on some cake stand at some awards ceremony. It was quite sexist. She needs to venture into new territory. And that film with Reese Witherspoon looks highly embarrassing.

  • Batman0829

    I don’t think she’s being arrogant. She is a latina with a voluptuous figure, of course she’s never going to be cast a Mary Sue the elementary school teacher or something. That’s not her fault, it’s the casting directors limited imagination.

  • Jenny from the flop

    What a deluded, superficial, narcissistic woman. Honey, you ain’t that hot! You look like a tr*nny in a yucky wig

  • myself

    no know one takes her seriouslly as an actress because she cant act on that level because she not good actor here

  • myself

    the article and her comes off vain and begging for a serious role here!

  • mandyz

    she isn’t exactly as talented as Charlize Theron who is absolutely stunning and pulled off playing a VERY homely serial killer to perfection. don’t make excuses for her when she’s a bad actress with a very limited range. beautiful girls can be talented if they don’t rely on their looks 1000% like sofia has. i remember when she was a nobody on Univision, don’t forget where you started sofia. all she knows is how to negotiate getting a bigger paycheck, she knows her career will be on the back burner for a good while once Modern Family is finished.

  • mandyz

    and those veneers were such a bad choice she did. she looks like a horse with those gnashers.

  • JC

    Amen! Exactly what I thought. She looks like Howdy Doody’s mom if you ask me. http://www.amaranthpublishing.com/howdy2.jpg

  • saphiry

    Exactly. Actresses like Charlize Theron or Angelina Jolie are absolutely stunning and could use (or could have used in the past) their beautiful faces or hot bodies to be famous, but instead they’re also amazing actresses and get a variety of great roles in big movies.

  • duh!

    Look up Sofia vergara without makeup….THE END

  • Rose Ryan

    One thing that stops her from getting parts is her annoying voice. Sheesh! There are many actors with accents, so that isn’t the problem. Her voice just grinds on the nerve and she isn’t a very good actress. Good that she knows her limitations, although that face looks a bit manly, because that’s all she has. Not saying she isn’t a nice person in life, but we’re talking about her career.

  • devvv

    Someone should tell her that her “good figure” is much more common than the average stick thin actress. She could play a normal role if she could act. Her casting has less to do with looks and more to do with the fact that she continuously seeks roles that require a stereotypical portrayal of a loud Latina.

  • Jenny from the flop

    Exactly! Veneers are so ugly!

    then how does scarlett johansson get all the roles that she does

  • Hmmmm

    If she left the Botox alone which gives her Joker face at times, she could possibly get the “average girl” roles. Some mentioned Charlize earlier and I agree and I’ll also give credit to Mariah Carey for downplaying her looks in “Precious.” Sounds like she’s making excuses for her limited acting abilities.

  • myself

    Because shes not a good actress here thats why
