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

She seems like a wonderful person with a great spirit, not obnoxious. Always a positive attitude.

TEXAS13, so you only understand people with an American accent? How ignorant, you probably just don’t like her because she isn’t white.

I think she looks fantastic. And I love the way she embraces her curves! Paired side-by-side with your standard pin-thin Hollywood starlet, Vergara is an incredibly sexy woman. I don’t understand why so many starlets strive to look like starving teenage boys – there’s nothing attractive about it!

I love, love, love her! I love her confidence in herself, that is the most important thing!!! Great woman.

It's true on

Oh PLEASE. Nothing against Sofia, she’s pretty. But I’m SOOOO tired of the Latin stereotype “I’m Latin, I can be fat and pass that off as curvy!!!” It’s just a slap in the face and hypocritical to the pressures put on Caucasian women. Again, please, she does talk as if she’s the first women to have a pair of boob….

Sofia is a totally stunning woman. She presents herself with such confidence. She is the perfect role model for any young girl instead of the pretzel-thin models on the runway.
