Sofia Vergara: "You Don't Have to Win Miss Universe" To Feel Attractive

Sofia Vergara talks about embracing her curves and sexuality for the September issue of Allure magazine. The Colombian actress, who was named the highest paid actress on television by Forbes for her hilarious role as, Gloria Pritchett, on ABC’s hit show, Modern Family, reveals that sexiness is more about attitude than looks.

“You don't have to win Miss Universe, but you have to feel attractive, and you have to feel wanted,” says Sofia. The star, who may be engaged to longtime boyfriend, Nick Loeb, also admits to embracing her curves to the fullest: "I don't mind when the boobs get smaller. I don't like when the ass gets smaller. In Latin America, if you don't have a big ass, you're nothing.”

While some may criticize her for perpetuating stereotypes of the modern day Latina, the 40-year-old actress says it’s all about interpretation. “We're loud. We're passionate. We're colorful. We're voluptuous ... I am not scared of the stereotype of the Latin woman, because I think that's fantastic,” she confesses.
