Sofia Vergara is Esquire Magazine’s April cover girl, which is titled the “Sex Issue”. In the article she opens up about being a Latina, and how that’s affected her life. Her family is close and overbearing at times. Dressing sexy is a must – but you need to be with the right kind of man to handle it. She also opens up about sex and female beauty.
Read the interview below!
On patience as a virtue: “There’s always a lot going on. Nick wonders how I can get really mad and scream, then turn around, do something, come back, and forget that I was mad. The first time it happened, he thought, This woman is insane. One time I was screaming with my sister. Then the next day, I told him I was having lunch with her. He said, ‘How? You were just fighting with her!’ I didn’t even realize it was weird or insane until I came here. It’s not out of the ordinary where I come from. Everybody’s like that. It’s better that way. You forget about what’s bothering you. It’s not like you’re holding it inside, you know? You get it out — and it’s over with.”
On family: “Sometimes it can be bad to have too much family. Everybody gets involved in your problems, giving their opinion, gossiping, and making drama. But when bad things happen, they will be there to support you. Nick had a big accident a year and a half ago. He was in the hospital for a month. More people came to take care of me taking care of him than came to see him. He said, ‘Wow, this is amazing!’”
On dressing sexy: “That’s where it’s up to the Latina to be intelligent and choose a guy who can handle that. If a Latina falls in love with someone who is insecure, it can be a nightmare. I’ve had girlfriends who’ve been with really jealous guys, and it’s like they’re never enjoying you. You’re at a party and they’re just watching your every move.”
On cheating: “Latin men have something inside them, a genetic disposition to be a little sneaky. A Latin woman has to watch for that. An American guy might think twice before going there. He’s thinking ahead, This could turn into a problem that’s just not worth it. The Latin guy might love the drama and thrill of it in the moment. In the past, Latin men were known to keep mistresses. As long as the wife didn’t hear any gossip about it, or there wasn’t any less money for her that month, I guess she put up with it. But that was years ago. Things have changed. Women now work. Women feel like they don’t have to take that sh-t anymore.”
On sex: “I guess at the end of the day, all women like to be appreciated and treated with respect and kindness. We all want to have sex in a romantic way. But with a Latina, you’re going to have more fun”
On American swimsuits: “It’s like a diaper. It’s terrible. Who can look good in that? When I moved to the United States, I used to have bathing suits brought up from Colombia. There’s nothing slutty about a dental-floss bikini. You don’t even think about it. The first bathing suit your mother buys you is in the shape of a triangle.”
On female beauty: “Well, in Colombia everybody’s very voluptuous and you’re supposed to be. You don’t want to be skinny when all of your cousins are mermaids. You grow up thinking that’s how beauty is.”
I think she comes across really well in interviews. I think she is absolutely gorgeous, but listening to her talk is like nails on a chalk board to me. It’s probably why I can’t watch ‘Modern Family’ and I know how hilarious that show is!
