Sofia Vergara: I Don't Understand Why Women Get Upset About Being Objectified

Sofia Vergara gives a sultry stare on the cover of Net-a-Porter’s The Edit magazine.

Here’s what the 43-year-old Modern Family star had to share with the mag:

On diversity in Hollywood: “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. The problem is not the networks or directors: it’s that there aren’t enough writers creating things for Latinos. Once we have more Latinos writing, that’s when things may really start to change…”

On female 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 was a male stripper in Magic Mike XXL – do you think he was offended by [the objectification]? I thought it was hilarious. As for whether he has ever danced for me, I really couldn’t say…”

On her body: “My body has changed with age. 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. In ten years I think it would be good to have a reduction. 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.”

    too late – she already does look like an old stripper.

    Of course she doesn’t mind. Her whole career is based on playing the sexy chick with the exaggerated accent. If there wasn’t objectification she and her husband wouldn’t have careers. But I think they both know that and own it.

  • Will

    Well Sophia your obviously disturbingly uneducated so I will try to put this as plainly as possible, women are victims of rape, domestic violence, murder, harassment of all kinds because of objectification. They are body parts to some people and treated like nothing because of objectification. Can you understand this simple fact or is it too complicated for you.

  • Jay Kmonk

    So gay.

  • Do Tell

    I love Sofia. But she’s saying this bc she is beautiful and sexy. Beautiful women get a lot of attention, so, of course, they love people fawning over them. A woman with beauty + brains is super powerful.

    The problem can come when we age. Beauties are lucky if they have true love and friendships or something else to focus on. If not, beautiful women are prone to depression when society no longer gives them the attention they once got.

    I’ve noticed most formerly beautiful women in HW seem to go into hiding.

    Rape and domestic violence are NOT about “objectification” … they are about power and control over another person.

  • Adnan Niloy

    Power and control are part of objectification. Objectifing presents women as objects and tools to men which they can take out from the box whenever they like and use them.
