Sofia Vergara Causes a Situation with Her Plunging Dress at the SAG Awards

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

Nice balanced life. Good for her. Eat. Enjoy. Be lustful in your life’s pleasures in moderation. Sofia Vergara – a real role model for REAl women.

It’s the week-end – bring on the dessert’s baby. Pizza. Vegan’s – be gone.

This is a beautiful dress and Sofia looks awesome in it. This dress is so much better than the dress she wore for the Golden Globe awards.

.. she looks beautiful- and the dress and color both remind me of Kate Middleton’s engagement picture dress–

I adore her! she’s gorgeous and if you stuck another hollywood actress next to her that is the size of a pin she does not have the same body shape. She’s proud of what she looks like and where’s she’s from. Curves are not fat, and are not obviously a straight stick body. She has big hips and a big chest. She embraces it and loves herself for what she is and doesn’t disagree with her look. she’s proud of herself, thats how women should be looking at there self with. Confidence. :)

Finally, an actress who loves her body! I’m tired of the skinny actresses on magazine covers who are always talking about their diets and how they deprive themselves of all pleasure in life. It’s high time we realize we are here on earth to enjoy our life’s work, family, and yes, great food. We shouldn’t have to deny ourselves because of some 50 something movie producer who thinks women should be stick thin. I’m thin and I wish I was curvy like Sophia! She’s warm, loveable, funny and full of life.
