    Default Sofia Vergara complains about women getting freakish surgeries, “like Madonna”

    Sofia Vergara complains about women getting freakish surgeries, “like Madonna”

    I was just checking to see if Esquire had released their September cover story yet when I came across their profile of Sofia Vergara. I’ve become a huge, HUGE fan of Sofia’s ever since I started watching Modern Family this year. She is absolutely hilarious, and her accent and comedic timing is to die for. Plus, she’s drop-dead gorgeous, which certainly appeals to most men and probably a significant number of women (I wouldn’t mind an hour in bed with her, honestly). Anyway, I’m pleased to find out that she’s really, really funny in interviews too! I’ve been sitting here giggling through this whole piece:
    Let me start with the accent, because it’s a work of art. Sort of a female version of Al Pacino in Scarface, it deserves its own Lloyd’s of London policy. It’s like Buster Keaton’s deadpan face, like Snooki’s tan. And it’s real. Or sort of real — its true and fictional versions have fused, and Sofia’s no longer sure.

    “I was watching this home video from when I was twenty years old. And my son says, ‘Listen to you!’ ” (Sofia pronounces this “Lee-sohn to you.”) “He says, ‘Your English is perfect. I mean, a little accent but not this insanity.’ He told me, ‘You’re the only person who has lived fifteen years in a country and the accent gets worse.’ ”

    I’m hearing Sofia’s accent live and in person at a café in downtown New York. She greeted me here with a double-cheek kiss (we’d never met), wearing a black shirt, one shoulder revealed. She’s drinking coffee — Colombian, of course. She was born thirty-eight years ago in the coastal city of Barranquilla.

    Sofia is on hiatus from ABC’s Modern Family, the best sitcom to debut last year. She plays Gloria Delgado-Pritchett, a Latina mom in tight tops and altitudinous heels who unleashes tirades on her son’s soccer coach and who is married to a rich guy twice her age. And who is, by the way, totally lovable.

    Sofia’s a tweeter (sample: “…muchos besos y abrazos!!!!!”), so I thought I’d ask her sixty-three thousand followers for questions. The problem? A recent snafu wiped out all her cell-phone data and she can’t figure out how to log on to Twitter. “Something happened in space,” she says. “That’s what the T-Mobile guy told me.”
    As a backup, I ask Esquire’s Twitter followers to send in their thoughtful queries. Such as this one: “What do you think of people staring at your boobs all day?”

    “Ay, but they don’t,” she says, laughing. (She is, by the way, a frequent and fantastic laugher — as well as a great and generous winker.) Not that she’s unwilling to discuss said boobs. At one point, Sofia says, she considered breast reduction. Luckily for men’s magazine readers and ABC executives, her mom talked her out of it, saying, “God is going to punish you if you cut them.”

    Someday she may tweak her eyes a bit, but she’s sworn off major surgical overhauls. “L.A. is crazy. The women all look the same now. That thing with the cheeks. Like Madonna. Who do they think they’re fooling? It doesn’t make them look young. You end up looking like a freak.”

    Twitter: According to Wikipedia, her dad worked in the meat industry in Colombia, a big red-meat-loving country. What’s her favorite cut of beef?

    “Actually, I haven’t eaten red meat for fifteen years. Because when I came to the U. S., the meat tasted really funny to me.”

    Sofia arrived in Miami with its funny-tasting beef at age twenty-three. She’d been at dentistry school when she was spotted walking on a Colombian beach in a G-string, which led to a Pepsi ad and modeling gigs. She married young, had a son, and divorced. She left Colombia for fear of violence — her older brother had been murdered in a botched kidnapping. In Miami, she hosted a series on Univision — a Fear Factor — like game show that paid people to, for instance, jump out of helicopters naked.

    Twitter: “Since you were raised a devout Catholic in Colombia, do you find the shallowness of Hollywood hard to handle?”

    Sofia says she no longer practices a strict Catholicism; her religious life is more about thanking God. “I don’t think God cares if I wear nail polish or not. I don’t think that’s a deal breaker for him.”

    Also, presumably, God is okay with hair dyeing. Because Sofia is a natural blond. “If you see my family, you wouldn’t believe it. Everyone looks like they’re Polish. Blond with blue eyes. But I wasn’t getting any jobs in L. A. They were confused. They have this stereotype that Latin people have to look like Salma Hayek. The minute I made my hair dark, then they believed that I am Latina.”

    Twitter: “What qualities do you look for in a man?”

    She says it’d be nice if they could dance. “Latin guys dance. American guys don’t dance. That’s a big difference.” On the other hand, American guys “cheat less than Latin men. I think they take — how do you say when you make a deal with somebody? Commitment. They take commitment more seriously.”

    Sofia has reportedly dated Enrique Iglesias, Luis Miguel, and, briefly, Tom Cruise. Right now, she’s with a strapping businessman named Nick Loeb who recently ran (unsuccessfully) for Florida’s state senate.

    Twitter: “Are you playing Smurfette in the upcoming Smurfs movie?”

    No. She’s playing a perfume-company executive. But Smurfette will definitely be in the movie. (Related: My favorite tweet of Sofia’s is a photo of two Smurf dolls in the missionary position with the caption “What are they doing????!!!!!!!”)

    All of a sudden Sofia’s got to go. She has only a day left in New York before flying back to L.A. to see her son, now nineteen years old. He’s named Manolo. After a character in Scarface. Really? Sofia laughs.

    So many more Twitter questions. Could she stay a while longer? She laughs again.

    “What, are you going to write a whole issue about me?” Wouldn’t be the worst idea.
    [From Esquire]
    See? She’s f-cking adorable. I love women like Sofia, she’s amazing. I love the line, “I don’t think God cares if I wear nail polish or not. I don’t think that’s a deal breaker for him.” Ha! She thinks God has “deal breakers”. How can you not adore her? And I love love love that she called out Madonna: The women all look the same now. That thing with the cheeks. Like Madonna. Who do they think they’re fooling? It doesn’t make them look young. You end up looking like a freak.” Sofia hath spoken. She and Christina Hendricks are like my favorite girls now.

    I officially love her after watching her in Modern Family. I had no idea she was so funny! Actually, I hadn't known anything about her before the show except that she dated Tom Cruise and that she was called "Sophia Viagra".

    She's not a blonde. She may have been as a child, but her roots in this very old photo say otherwise.




    I knew her a long time ago. I grew up with the guy in this pic, she used to date him. She was a nice girl (he's a dick though). She still seems to be. Her roots show there too.

    She is number 1 on my freebie list. H-O-T!!!

    And I love that she speaks her mind w/o censoring herself. Although, it's going to get her in trouble eventually.

    ^A nobody. He was a front man in some FL nite clubs for the NY mob. A wanna be tough guy. He was a thief, he was known as 'Chris Binger' for his robbery binges. Was involved in a home invasion robbery where a woman was killed.

    from wiki:

    Chris Paciello (born Chris Ludwigsen,[1] 7 September 1971, in New York) is a former nightclub owner in Miami in the 1990s largely known for dating Madonna[2].

    Paciello grew up Christian Ludwigsen on Thirteenth Avenue in Bensonhurst, steps from Bath Avenue, an Italian stronghold of weathered single-family homes and corner stores like "Casa Calamari." It's also a stronghold of the Bonanno, Gambino, and Colombo crime families. When he was 16, Paciello's family moved to Mercury Lane in Staten Island, but three years later he moved out of the house and took his mother's maiden name. The change wasn't simply a chance to flaunt the Italian side of his heritage; he told friends it was also a rejection of his father -- who, the Queens and Brooklyn district attorney's offices report, on separate occasions in the late eighties faced charges for burglary, auto theft, and attempted criminal possession of a controlled substance. "Chris moved out and took the family with him," says Michael Capponi, a veteran South Beach promoter and, eventually, Paciello's director at Bar Room. "They don't talk anymore."

    Paciello had connections to New York crime families,[1] and had regularly committed robberies when a teenager in Brooklyn.[3] He moved to Miami in 1994, and in November opened a nightclub, Risk, at the same venue as a failed nightclub owned by Mickey Rourke. The club burned down the following April, and Paciello opened other nightclub, Liquid, in November 1995.[3] Liquid became a center of Miami’s South Beach nightlife in the early and late 1990s.[4]

    An FBI investigation resulted in his arrest for driving the getaway car for a home invasion in February 1993 in Staten Island during which Judith Shemtov was murdered in her home.[5] He was arrested on 1 December 1999 and charged with robbery and murder. He pleaded guilty in October 2000.[6] He also admitted involvement in a $300,000 bank robbery at the Staten Island Mall in December 1992.[7]

    Paciello was freed from jail in September 2006 after serving seven years of his ten year sentence,[7] and is now living in Los Angeles. He is the owner of two pizzerias named Cristoni in West Hollywood and Beverly Hills, and a restaurant called Murano.[3] He was arrested over a street fight in 2008, but was not charged.[3] A film, Unmade Man, is being made about his life.[2]

    ^ yep. it's hard to grow up in ny, and have family roots in brooklyn without knowing the occasional criminal.

    I met him as a teen. In college he dated a close friend of mine, and when she dumped him he burned her car.
