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

Love Sophia Vergara. Gorgeous. But if you naive folks think she is plastic surgery-free, then you’re pathetic! Meow!

You can’t trace her plastic surgery past, because it was done far away in her native Colombia…LOL.

I’m curious where People can have a hissy fit with Sofia’s dress when they featured a cover with Jessica Simpson wearing a black dress that showed off ten times the cleavage Sofia is showing in that pic.

People’s next interview will be with Kettle, where they’ll constantly accuse it of being black.

I’ve known about Sofia since her days as a model in Colombia. She has always been very conceited and is always talking about her looks, like about her boobs or her “naturally” blonde hair. I am surprised that she made it this far, since she is only a so-so actress, and she is basically just playing herself. Like everywhere, it’s all who you know.
