Sofia Vergara backtracks on her Madonna/plastic surgery comments


First, what do you think of Sofia Vergara’s dress? She wore this last night, to the Breakthrough of the Year awards. It’s very… demure. You can hardly see any of her amazing figure! It’s still there, of course, you can’t hide that amazing body, but it seems like Sofia chose this dress specifically because she was feeling a little over-exposed, in more ways than one. Ever since she got an Emmy nomination for her (great) work on Modern Family, she’s slowly but surely been getting more press, and some of it has been negative. Note this: her alleged fiancé Nick Loeb didn’t come with her for the Breakthrough Awards, which makes me wonder about those reports that he’s jealous of her fame and success.

Another reason she’s been getting so much press? Because she’s a great interview. She gave a stellar one to Esquire in which she was complaining about all of the plastic surgery she sees around her: “L.A. is crazy. The women all look the same now. That thing with the cheeks. Like Madonna. Who do they think they’re fooling? It doesn’t make them look young. You end up looking like a freak.” This quote got picked up and repeated on every blog and entertainment site and many are trying to make it into a “Sofia hates Madonna: Bitch Fight” story. I just thought it was a funny and very true statement, and it was probably a throw-away remark that any of us could have made. But Sofia felt bad about it, and apparently she was getting sh-t about it. So she took to her Twitter to explain:

Can it be over now? She loves Madonna, she’s never giving Esquire another interview (which is too bad, in my opinion, because that was one of their better pieces), and she didn’t mean anything. I hope everyone stops attacking her.

Anyway, things are going well for her beyond that – not only is she nominated for an Emmy, she’s just been announced as one of the presenters, along with Matthew Marrison, Ricky Gervais, John Krasinski and Julianna Marguilies. Oh, and Sofia won at the Breakthrough Awards too! She tweeted this photo of her victory:

    Whatever-too bad she didn’t say it because it’s true! And then lo and behold Madonna had work done for her birfday. Not so freakish looking anymore.

  4. Hautie says:

    What is wrong with having a personal opinion.

    She did not say anything that alarming.

    Madonna does look like a victim of her plastic surgeon. And those cheeks are awful. Along with those scary arms.

    And the whole random thought of Sofia’s made me like her even more.

  5. gracie says:

    If her boyfriend/fiance Nick is jealous of her success…she needs to dump his ass.

    If you are trying to follow your dream and have the career you want, you only need positive, loving people at your side.

  6. LOVE ANGELINA says:

    The dress is horrible. Snitched awful in the crotch area. I can’t understand the design here. Don’t talk sh*t about Madonna is all I have to say.

  7. Katie says:

    So is she flat out denying she said it? Because I don’t see an actual denial. If she did say it and is backtracking now under pressure, then I think I like her a little less.

  8. meme says:

    of course she did. spineless twat.

  9. Whatever says:

    I can’t get past the “writter” from the “magacine”. I’m LMAO at her dumb ass. Seriously, these are simple words. Too bad she backtracked. Madonna looked like a jacked version of the crypt keeper before getting that mess fixed. That woman is crossing into Joan Rivers territory and really needs to leave her face alone. She needn’t worry about aging, her pathetic little boy toy manwhore nobodies will still screw her for cash!

  10. Riley says:

    Does she get on with the other cast of Modern Family. The blond woman on the show was on Chelsea Handler one night and basically was calling her an idiot and talking about what a pain the ass she is. It seemed like there was real tension. I heart Modern Family and hope they can keep the show fresh. She and the kid who plays her son, Manny, are great.

  11. mm says:

    Like the dress and like her original comments about Madonna.

    No need to backtrack, we all agree that Madonna looks freakish!

  12. Tazina says:

    Madonna looks beautiful. If she has had plastic surgery, it’s very well done. This girl is young, an immature bimbo. They speak before they think and now she is lying to get out of admitting she said those comments. That dress is awful btw. It looks like there is a hand underneath clutching at the fabric. Can you say “frumpy”?

  13. Jean says:

    I’m probably in the minority, but she used to be on a show called “Hot Properties” and looked fairly different.
    Maybe I’m imagining things though. Either way, she’s gorgeous.

  14. Riley says:

    Oh speaking of bad plastic surgery (and Madonna has had it) but check out Rachel Ray. She looks like she has had a brow lift and it is BAD. She looks like that nutty lady from you think you can dance, the one they always make fun of on the Soup.

  15. no need to backtrack sofia! you’re right, that cheek thing is scary!

  16. Aqua says:

    People can no longer have an opinion because some stupid entertainment show, blog or what have you will turn what she said into something completely different, trying to start a war of words. There is nothing wrong with what she said it’s just her opinion, it was innocent enough, but I guess no one is aloud to actually say what they think. Freedom of speech?

    I don’t like it when anyone says something and then starts to backtrack, its an innocent comment, stand behind what you say,

    These stars lately are starting to sound like politicians.

  17. TeeTee says:

    no need to recant your story Sophia, you’re right–those pics of Madonna and those wretched cheeks still spook me to this day..not to mention those scary veiny steriod arms..

    she’s in her 50′s and still will not just age gracefully, everyone is laughing at her, if she’d just stick to making music instead of competing w/the new generation AND let that damn near teenage boy live his life with someone young and vibrant..


  18. lucy2 says:

    I figured she’d backtrack, but had hoped she wouldn’t because she’s RIGHT!

    Tazina, Sofia is 38. Not old by any means, but I wouldn’t say she’s an immature girl.

  19. Leek says:

    Lame. That is like saying the sun shines bright in LA and then denying it. She was right on.

  20. Eileen says:

    “Madonna looks beautiful. If she has had plastic surgery, it’s very well done. ”

    Please tell me you’re joking?!
    How does this:

    Look as good as this:

    Even with the 80′s makeup, the 2nd choice is clearly a winner.

  21. Kiska says:

    Has Sofia seen Madonna lately? Madonna looks absolutely stunning. Perhaps her period of post surgery took some adjustment but the results are great.

    As for the dress, Sofia could wear a burlap sack and still look amazing.

  22. Isa says:

    The dress needs to be nipped in more at the waist. Women need to be careful not to lose their waist.

    I wish she hadn’t backtracked. The comment was awesome. I still love her. I even think “writter” and “magacine” is adorable. When I read her Twitter it was in her accent!

  23. SammyHammy says:

    “Madonna looks beautiful. If she has had plastic surgery, it’s very well done”

    Wow! You seriously need an eye exam.

  24. gen says:

    See frikin said it! What, did she think the magazine wouldn’t print it? What a dummy. She has a lot to learn. And don’t bloody blame Esquire, they’re just printing what you said.

  25. xxodettexx says:

    it is times like this where i wish SOMEONE would have the balls to stick to their opinion…

  26. Jeri says:

    Too bad only actresses new to the fame game are honest. When JLo was just getting known she gave an interview (to Movieline I think) that trashed Madonna, Gwyneth & others. It was funnier then h-ll & really got down. She later denied the statement.

    Madonna has turned herself into a joke – skelator & more. She only looks good when photo shopped or under very special lighting.

  27. Sally says:

    Love the dress! Stunning colour, interesting draping. You can still see her hot body in it, too. Pity she back-tracked.. though Sofia doesn’t look 100% natural to me (in the face), she definitely had a point about Madonna!

  28. BethL says:

    It sounded like Sophia was saying the writer took things out of context. But if that was true she probably would have released an official statement. Sophia only said what everybody was thinking. Unfortunately for her when you attack a huge star, it usually hurts you more than the star.

  29. Liana says:

    Damn, own your shit. No one does anymore. First the bad “rape” joke on the View, now this. Oy.

  30. Conchis says:

    People don’t know this but Sofia is actually friends with Madonna since the 90s when Madonna lived in South Beach and Sofia was dating one of Madonna’s best friends. Look it up on the book Miami Babylon. Sofia was just been funny.
