Everyone loved Sofia Vergara’s plunging Roberto Cavalli dress at the Screen Actors Guild Awards on Sunday night–everyone, perhaps, except Vergara herself. “A little too much situation here,” the Modern Family actress and SAG nominee joked to PEOPLE about her low-cut neckline. Her costars begged to differ, however. Julie Bowen told PEOPLE, “What could anyone say to Sofia except she looks phenomenal? Always, always, always!” Vergara, 38, usually wouldn’t disagree. At Elle‘s Women in Television event in West Hollywood last Thursday, she admitted to liking being “a little plump.” Vergara says, “Because I’m Latin, I’m expected to be voluptuous, so I don’t have be a certain weight that is really skinny because it is expected of me. I think they want me with a little bit of meat.” While accepting an award from Elle, Vergara commented on her figure, jesting that her boobs “only belong in a strip bar or somewhere indecent. So, being in Elle is one of the greatest achievements of my life.” But embracing her curves doesn’t mean she eats anything she wants. “I believe in everything in moderation,” she says. “I try to eat healthy during the week, but during the weekend I would eat the things that I like: my desserts, my pizza, my pasta.” Most important to aging gracefully, Vergara says, is “taking time to enjoy.” She adds: “If you like to eat, eat!” –Patrick Gomez

i am sick of stars talking about how fat, plump, curvy they are when they just simply are NOT. Its insulting and will hurt the young girls coming up now to read this stuff. STOP it, please.

Not a Sofia Vergara fan & did not like the dress. Why do all these stars think they need to let it all hang out at the award shows. I think she is way over-rated as an actress & I hate that I can’t understand what she says when she is talking.

TEXAS13 . . . . if you truly cannot understand what she is saying, you obviously have not lived in Texas very long and you definitely are not a native to our great state!
