Sofia Vergara covers InStyle April 2012 and talks about turning 40-years-old this June and what that means for her future insofar as having children with current boyfriend Nick Loeb (she already has a son, Manolo, 20, from a previous relationship).
Vergara admits in her interview that she doesn’t care about ageing, not that she should since she’s wearing the years remarkably well. And she admits using her looks to get ahead and finds no shame in it opening doors.
On not yet being ready to have a family with her boyfriend: “I guess I am going to think about freezing my eggs.”
On meeting Nick Loeb: “The most important thing was that he was very handsome,” the Colombian actress says about her initial attraction to the businessman. “But he was also very funny, talking sh–– to me like a normal person.”
On her brother, Rafael, being kidnapped and killed in 1998 in Colombia. Sofia, living in Miami, relocated her family to the US: “You can’t just sit in your house and think about the tragedies. That’s when people get depressed and their lives stop.”
On turning 40-years-old in June: “I don’t really care,” she says. “But doesn’t that sound hideous? I remember thinking when my mom was 40 that she was already done.”
On making the “sexiest” lists: “I am on these lists for ‘best a$$’ or ‘most beautiful’ with women like Mila Kunis, who’s, like, 20 years old. I have a son that age! Part of my career has always been because of the way I look. I’m not ashamed. It has opened doors. But I also know that if I didn’t have something else, I’d be long gone.”
On jewellery: “I love jewelry; rings, earrings, bracelets, necklaces, you name it. If my stylist didn’t stop me, I’d go out looking like a Christmas tree.”
On her own mother’s style secrets: “I grew up watching my mother do her makeup. It would be 7 AM, and she would be putting in hot rollers to take us to school. For us, that’s normal!”
On her idea of a perfect date: “A great date? Dinner and a movie. Or sports, watched in the venue, not on TV. No canoes. No water. Nothing to mess up the hair.”
On her guilty pleasure TV show: “I watch ‘Revenge.’ It’s a soap opera but so classy – and everyone is beautiful.”
On her least favorite school subject: “I always hated Math. The moment I run out of fingers, I can’t count anymore.”
On her accent: “I get to talk in my accent [on Modern Family], which has only gotten worse. Before, I was careful and worked on it. And now people are laughing, so why change it.”
On how she reached her fame: “I’ve lived a life full of things I never thought I could achieve,” she says of her career thus far. “It takes effort and sacrifice, but why not risk trying to be better?” - via InStyle Magazine.
