Vergara can't play 'ordinary girl'
31 Mar 2015 16:04
Sofia Vergara has explained that due to her good looks she "can't just play an ordinary girl", but instead has to take advantage of her appearance to get good roles.
The 42-year-old Modern Family star told The Sun: "When I was a teenager I was skinny but with big boobs. Everybody stares at you and of course every man is after you. "Later I realised that having a good figure was an advantage on TV and getting attention and publicity, but it also means you can't play more normal kinds of roles. I can't just play an ordinary girl. "So I try to find roles which will let me capitalise on my looks and my personality and advance my career that way."
Vergara, who is best known for playing the fiery Gloria on Modern Family, also added about the role: "Modern Family was such a gift for me and it's given me the experience and confidence to be able to do different kinds of roles. "I love Gloria and I love the people I get to work with on the series. It's been such an important and beautiful part of my life and I want to keep working on the show and enjoying it as long as it lasts."
