Sofia Vergara: “Turning 40 is horrible. People that say it isn’t are full of s–t”

Sofia Vergara covers the November issue of Lucky Mag, and my goodness, it is a doozy. The photos aren’t anything special or anything – Sofia’s a pretty woman, and she consistently looks great in pictorials. But the interview is surprisingly revealing, even for Sofia, who often spends her interviews talking about her body, her career and her Colombian background with an enormous amount of candor. In this piece, Sofia discusses her fiance, Nick Loeb, as well as her love of luxury and yes, she talks about her boobs. Forever and always. Some highlights:

On Nick Loeb: “We are f-cking professionals at doing nothing. We like to sit around on the beach and drink wine and talk sh-t.”

Wedding plans: “Maybe we will just have a little dinner on Capri.”

She loves luxury: “I love luxury. I love yachts. I love planes. I love trips,” Vergara admits. “I can live without all of them, and I have, but I am not going to apologize and pretend I don’t love luxury, because I do.”

Her engagement ring: “It is perfection. If it was bigger, it would be too big to wear. But if it was smaller, I would not like.”

The idea of having another kid with Loeb: “He is younger than me, 37, and he never had them. So if he wants one, maybe I will have.”

She’s not opposed to getting a breast lift: “[My boobs] are such a pain in the ass, but I was never insecure about them. But I never think, ‘Oh, I’m so spectacular.’ I want to show all this off while I still have it. I already know I am going to get a breast lift. Then, maybe one day, when I am done with being sexy, I will just get rid of them.”

She kind of hates Gisele Bundchen and her smaller boobs: “I know [my breasts] have opened doors for me, let’s be real. But I so hate when I see Gisele and she is wearing a tiny little tank top with no bra, like, ‘Oh, I just threw this on, I look so cute.’ If I wore that I would look like I was pregnant, or a fat stripper.”

Turning 40: “Turning 40 is horrible. People that say it isn’t are full of s**t.”

[From The Mail & Us Weekly]

See? This is a lot of candor from a celebrity who is known for candor. I’ve never heard Sofia talk about her willingness to have another kid with Nick Loeb – she always seemed like, before now, she didn’t want to do the motherhood thing again. I always thought that was one of the reasons why she and Nick didn’t make that much sense – he wanted babies and a wife (and hookers?) while Sofia wanted a luxury vacation and lots and lots of mojitos.

As for Sofia’s comment, “If I wore that I would look like I was pregnant, or a fat stripper” – I know EXACTLY how she feels. There are just some clothes that the large-breasted cannot pull off, because we will look A) fat, B) trashy, C) pregnant or D) all of the above. Most large-breasted ladies learn this early on, when our friends are like, “Ugh, padded bras!” and we’re like “Ugh, I guess I need to go up to the DD.” We cannot wear high-necked shirts. We can’t wear belly shirts. We can’t show too much cleavage. It’s always about balance for the large-breasted. *plays tiny violin*

    Ahh Sofia. I’ll be at 40 soon enough and to hear her talk about it makes me feel better about being obnoxious and bitter when the number ’40′ is mentioned!
    My Sofia-crush just keeps growing.

    • thyphoid mary says:

      Call me old fashioned, but i can’t get past a beautiful woman with a sailor mouth. I don’t care if you’re a stunning colombian, it makes the woman seem trashy instead of portraying the “i don ‘t care what anyone thinks i’m a strong woman” attitude…why do some of these women think it makes then come accross as self-confident and chic? It does the opposite. I don’t mind a fuck or shit every once in a while and well deserved within context, but abusing these words in every single fucking sentence you say? That is fhe defjnition of vulgar…sorry Sofia, your beauty and talent are being fogged by your lack of eloquence and vocabulary…cough Adele…cough.. And what ‘s with the styling of the pics? The makeup and clothes made me think it was Fran Drescher’s the Nanny character…WTH?

      • Bubbling says:

        I agree and disagree. As whole, yes you are completely right, but boy do you contradict your self in this post (using f bombs) and when I swear I don’t do it to purposely leave impression, but because nothing feels more right to say at that particular moment :)

      • T.C. says:

        Using the F word too much in an interview is vulgar but an S word here or there seems pretty normal to me. I like her honesty. It’s refreshing instead of the usual PR approved stuff.

      • Gracie says:

        Well, I guess it’s a good thing beautiful women aren’t living for your approval.

      • mln89 says:

        thank you, gracie! its so irritating when people try tell women the appropriate way to behave and speak. are men policed this much? this is not the 1950′s. “beautiful woman” or no, if sofia wants to use profanity to make her motherf&%king point, who gives a f#@k?

      • xxodettexx says:

        personally i love her f’king vulgar interview and love being a potty-mouthed vulgar woman as well! to each their own, i guess! :)

      • UNF Joan Jett! says:

        Actually I find it very refreshing when someone in showbusiness is not too perfect and swears from time to time. Especially in Adele´s case: Her face is of classic beauty and her hair and style are very matrony. So only her sailor mouth reveal that she is – in fact – a woman in her early twenties. I also don´t hate f*ck bombs on Kristen Stewart and I´m not gonna hate them on Sofia.

    • Molly says:

      Is she talking about all the creaking, popping, cracking, and body pain? Because at 31, everything hurts.

  2. Amelia says:

    Alright, I’ve never seen Modern Family before and I had no clue who Sofia was until a few weeks ago, as I can safely say I had NO freaking clue she’s turning 40!!
    Talk about ageing well.

    • atlantapug says:

      Agreed. I’ve never seen it either. And I had no clue she was 40. She does look very natural and pretty, but I have to tell you, there’s something about her face that keeps me from finding her more than just pretty.
      I can’t put my finger on it, but I just don’t see her as super-beautiful or stunning. Just pretty.

    • hoya_chick says:

      Amelia (pretty name!) the show especially the 1st season is absolutely amazing! I watch the 1st season all the time on DVD it’s great you should check it out.

  3. Hakura says:

    You have to give her credit for being so straight-forward & honest. Though whether or not she has a child shouldn’t be solely placed on her partner’s wanting to.

  4. lady_luck says:

    Her honesty is refreshing. An example of celebrity in denial about her impending 40th is Cameron Diaz. Her face is botoxed, tweaked and jerked about to the point of ludicrosy. She is looking more like a munchkin from the wizard of oz than a human being. Yet she says she is “fine” with ageing. What a joke.

  5. marie says:

    ha ha I love the Gisele comment, cause I feel the same way-it’s annoying..

  6. Charlotte says:

    I love the flip-side of the GOOP talk!

  7. Jackie O says:

    i get the feeling the spotlight is going to her head a bit and she is just overconfident enough to start letting the real sofia out.

    • EmmaStoneWannabe says:

      I agree. I still think she is an annoying try-hard. Pretty, indeed. But she tries so hard to be the likeable, cool, fun party girl – she is like this everywhere (red carpet, interviews, award show speeches,etc.). I get that is the persona she is pushing, but srsly, enough already.

      • Esmom says:

        Yeah, I agree that she has a schtick that she works and I also find it a bit tiresome.

      • Gracie says:

        I find her much more like able and relatable than Natalie Portman’s pretentious schtick, or Zoey Deschenal (how dafuq do you spell that?) and her “quirky girl” schtick. That’s insufferable to me

      • Camille (TheOriginal) says:

        @EmmaStoneWannabe: I agree. I’m not a fan either, she grates on my nerves. I like her comment about aging though. I haven’t reached 40 yet, but turning 30 sucked (sorry but it did lol).

  8. DD says:

    She is right. 40 sucks.

    • Happymom says:

      40 was okay, but 45 was seriously awful. It’s officially middle-aged-there’s no way around it.

      • MeMyself says:

        I will be 46 next month and talk about things that make you go “Hm…”

      • Dinah says:

        Come on, ladies!!!! It really isn’t that bad! Yes, I have some eye bags, my boobs have sagged… who the hell cares? I’m almost 47-it’s about perspective. Life remains in front of you, not behind.

        Totally agree with Kaiser’s large boobs/clothing limitations. Now THAT’S something that really SUCKS ( wouldn’t say no to a reduction/lift, LOL).

    • Really? says:

      I disagree! I am 45 and have never looked or felt better in my life. OK, maybe i “looked” better when i was younger, but did my inner feelings and confidence match up with the exterior? No. And face it, what chance do we have if someone like her is bashing her 40-ness? She of all people should be taking it in stride, like J-Lo (not a fan, but still) or the dozen or so other “older” actresses who are still in great shape and looking their best…

      Actually, she gets a big thumbs down for this recent revelation…was she having her period or something? I am seriously disappointed in her b!tching and moaning for which, given her status and career, she has little if any right or reason to do so…

      If i were in her place, i’d be like, hey, i still got it, and i’m gonna work it until my grandkids tell me it’s time to cool it. Then i might slow it down, but WTF Sophia, really? What kind of BS is your douche-loeb telling you?

      Your own self esteem may be deflated, but dammit, don’t be out there waving the white flag, cuz honey, you don’t speak for me, i am 45 and it’s not the end of my world.

      • Dinah says:

        Bravo, Really! I’m on your side.

      • Esmom says:

        “And face it, what chance do we have if someone like her is bashing her 40-ness?”

        THIS. It would be so refreshing if more women embraced maturity it rather than fearing it.

      • Green_Eyes says:

        Second those sentiments exactly! 47 and wouldn’t change a word…

      • Snail says:

        Agreed!

        I’m 44 soon to be 45 and look and feel fine.
        I have a professional career and feel a level of satisfaction from that because I’ve been doing it nearly 20 years and have a level of expertise.
        I understand the world and people better than I did when I was 25 and I have no fear. I feel my self-efficacy.
        I would not trade any of this for being younger.
        Our lifespan is finite but age is just a number. We should be getting in touch with our souls as we grow older, not clinging to our egos….time to let it go!
        Sometimes I feel sorry for Hollywood types….they must not feel so free, even for all the money they have.

    • Gracie says:

      Damn, I’m 17. Not looking forward to 40 cause woman complains about it! I can’t honestly see myself at 40, but its either aging or being dead right?

  9. Jayna says:

    I have never known a woman who liked hitting 40, ever. I have a friend who started crying at the mall the day before when they were out shopping. Her husband was really sweet to her in that moment. The stars who carry on like it’s empowering, blah, blah, I laught at., because you know celebs handle it deep down the worst of all, but as long as you don’t get that plastic surgeried Real Housewife look, a lot of women stay looking and feeling great and get over quickly that 4 number.

    My beautiful aunt told me that hitting 50 is the worst though. She told me it’s really depressing and that fifties are when your skin and such really starts
    changing and how awful menopause is.

    I saw a photo of Victoria Principal the other day shopping. She’s like 60 and looked natural and gorgeous and slender. I want to look like that when I get older, . And Helen Mirren is the best example of a still sexy older woman.

    • Christina says:

      Yeah, I’ve also heard that the menopause is when ageing really begins. Horrible though it may be, 40 really is ‘just a number’. You don’t look any different at 40 than you did at 39, and if you’re lucky, you can still look pretty good throughout your 40s.

      But the menopause is a whole other story: It brings about significant hormonal and other physical changes which really do alter the way you look. Which isn’t to say women can’t look good after the menopause – they obviously can – but it really does have an effect on your appearance.

      As for Victoria Principal, she’s about as ‘natural’ as Priscilla Presley!

      • Jayna says:

        But whatever Vuctoria is doing looks natural, not that plastic lsurgery look. Far from what Pricilla did to her face.. The photo was out in the sunlight shopping and her hair was a simple bob, still shiny, lots of body, and her face had a pretty, soft look. She was in a pair of jeans and boots and turtleneck long sweater. She didn’t have that try-hard look. No overuse if fillers, big lips, big bleached out Real Housewives hair that they all wear.

      • Christina says:

        Natural? I don’t think so:

        http://www.virginmedia.com/images/principal-now-290×400.jpg

        Sometimes if a picture is taken from a distance, these women can look OK. But they look freakish in close-up shots. Madonna is similar: on stage she looks good, but close-up, she’s scary.

    • Bored suburbanhousewife says:

      Preach it! The forties are great!

      But 50 and menopause IT ALL STARTS GOING fast.

      You visibly and physically experience deterioration of all kind including vision, hearing, sudden crackles in the knees, weight suddenly starts rising and compared with pre forty it’s a struggle to lose even a couple of pounds. If you do get back or maintain the old skinny, your face looks ten years older.

      I also find it hard to care about my clothes anymore because echo the f*** is looking at me anyway? It’s liberating in a way.

      • Green_Eyes says:

        Menopause just as every other “condition hits each woman differently & at different ages. Some much harder or easier than others & depends on how you balance out your hormones. I had no choice and faced it at 26. So my 40′s are great. I hope my 50′s are as well. I admit I was terrified of 30, Don’t know why was more about the number than anything, but 30 was it for me.

  10. L says:

    I totally feel her on the tops. No turtleneck or boatnecks either. Your boobs will look like they start at your neck.

    There are so many cute tops I wish I could wear. But I have a E cup and it’s just not happening. Same goes for cute bras that only go up to a DD. And I would love to find a bikini that doesn’t make me look like pam anderson in the 90′s. Yikes.

  11. Christina says:

    I barely know who she is, but I do agree with her about turning 40.

    When I was 29, I dreaded turning 30. And then I found that the anticipation was worse than the reality, and that 30 was quite OK really. And then, when I was 39, I lived in dread of my 40th birthday, but at the back of my mind told myself that maybe it would turn out not to be so bad.

    Unfortunately, 40 WAS bad! The few years after that have been no better. In my mind I still think I’m 28, and many people tell me I look like I’m 28 (honestly!) But I know that I’m NOT 28, or even 38, and never will be again.

    It shouldn’t matter. But it does.

    • Macey says:

      Same here, in fact things went down hill around that time but I dont really related it to age.

      It is refreshing to see someone saying what we feel instead of the typical age cliches

    • Mel says:

      I HATED turning 30, and I know I’ll hate turning 40. I don’t look my age either, but as a single woman I don’t want to admit to being close to 40, haha. Oh, the angst and grief over something thats inevitable and basically, just a number!

      • Christina says:

        I know…. it is ridiculous but there you have it.

        When I was in my 30s, I never ever lied about my age. Now, to my great shame, I (very) occasionally do so, at least with people I’m unlikely to meet again. It’s just that I can’t be bothered with the inevitable ’43? No way! You look to be in your 20s’. I suppose I should be flattered , but I’d rather just be 38 again!

  12. Masque says:

    I loved turning 40 so it was hard for me to understand the anti-40 mentality.

    • Hautie says:

      I also love being 40. For tons of reasons.

      Being 40 for me is a blessing. I love my life. I have great health. A great family. And do not want for anything.

      I have yet to understand why women just fall the f*ck out, when they get near their 40th birthday.

      But I am the kind of girl that came from a family that didn’t moan about age. We moan about missing a great shoe sale!

      Whenever one of Aunts or Mother… started to notice the shift in their face. They got it pulled back into place by their favorite plastic surgeon. :)

      And none of them touched their faces till they were into the late 50′s.

      So I guess I have another 10-15 years, till my face starts to move too far south.

      • Liberty says:

        Hautie, we must be related. 40 is not bothering me either in the least. My aunts and mom literally look about 50 to 55. Even their doctors are astounded every time.

        I have to add that my mentor in my first exec job was a fantastic, brilliant, fashionable woman who glowed, mssmerizing every man including celebs and heads of state she had to deal with. She was wooed by two celeb men in their 30s…I had to shake one out of her office! She had dates constantly, amazing attractive men. She was smart, confident, friendly, and businesslike yet warm and laughed readily. Flowers and calls and gifts from men rolled in. I nearly fell over (I was 22) when I found out she was 53. She was the Helen Mirren in my world and so she impacts my view of aging fabulously too.

      • DreamyK says:

        40 was great for me, too. I dumped the loser I was married to, went to college and got a few degrees, owned and luxuriated in my sexuality.

    • Esmom says:

      I wouldn’t say I loved it (I did love turning 30, however, I was happy to put my 20s behind me and settle down a bit!) but I wasn’t upset or afraid about it either. Like someone above said, it is just a number.

      Maybe I could shrug off the big 4-0 because by that point I felt happy about my life and definitely more in tune with what I needed to be healthy, mentally and physically.

      It’s helpful, at any age really, to be grateful for what you do have and not get crazy about what you don’t.

      • The Original Tiffany says:

        @Esmom, ITA! My 30′s were my shittiest, most stressful years. 40 onward has been awesome. I have no stress, my kids are older, got my health and body back and I can still beat my kids in a sprint.
        Plus, you have the confidence, life smarts and a dash of IDGAF. It is awesome.

        Loving my 40′s, got to see the world, I’m happy in my marriage. 50 is a bit scary, but I don’t think it will be when I get there.

        It is life, gonna happen to us all so embrace it and feel and look the best you can! I had a very early hysterectomy and am on hormones, so I am permanently pre-menopausal. Done deal.

        Live and love your 40′s and every age. Life always brings bad and good with every age.

    • Really? says:

      Thank you, thank you, thank you Masque, and to all of your other replyers…i am really surprised by all of the youth junkies out there, i mean, it’s a fact of life that we age, but seeing the huge amount of resistance out there is not only a testament to our juvenile worshipping society, it’s a freaking travesty.

      Life is what it is, it’s an ever revolving mix of good and bad, joy and pain, love and hate, ups and downs…so to get fixated on a part of our lives that is dsetined as impermanent does not at all mean that being young is the only power and beauty we have, it’s actually quite the opposite, it means that they (the anti-aging posters) are doomed to a downward spiral and decrease in life quality enoyment after the age of 40…ewwww, that’s their choice, but it sure as hell ain’t mine.

  13. another nina says:

    The thing, which I love the most about Sofia is her feud with Salma!

  14. Johanna says:

    This woman is insufferable! While reading it I could hear her over the top, thick, accent in my head. I’m Mexican-American, by the way.

    In the beginning I rooted for her but now I realize I got played by this caricature.

    • EmmaStoneWannabe says:

      Yes – a caricature. Prefect word to describe her.

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        Two things I realized after reading this interview:

        1) I definitely understand why she’s with an asshole like Nick Loeb.

        2) This is a woman that I have little-to-nothing in common with.

        I appreciate her honestly, it’s nice, but it doesn’t make me like her any more.

      • EmmaStoneWannabe says:

        @ O.K – agree. She is unrelatable and unlikeable by a lot of women.

      • The Original Genevieve says:

        @ OKitt and Emma…

        Totally agreed.

        I used to really enjoy how un-jaded and refreshing Sofia was when she bumbled along with her spontaneous comments. Now, I just find her to be an insufferable PITA.

        Your 40 is not my 40, Sofia. I’m actually enjoying mine.

        And you appear to have VERY little to complain about dear. Next.

  15. Chell says:

    #1~ I adore Sofia, she’s not only beautiful but has such a magnetic personality.

    #2~ I am turning 40 in five months & I thought I was ok with it, but after reading some of these comments the reality is I am NOT okay at all! UGH!!!!

    • Esmom says:

      @Chell, lol, no need to get worked up about turning 40. Seriously, it is just a number. You won’t wake up suddenly old and decrepit. Try to focus on what’s good in your life and you will be fine!

    • Really? says:

      Chell! Don’t let the Loeb-licker get you down! How dare she talk sh!t like that and make you feel bad about yourself! Age is not a fault, it’s a fact, and just because V-loeb is caught up in a self-hating material world doesn’t mean we have to follow her like the plastic pied piper to the wax museum. Screw her! Would you speak to your daughter like that? If she ever does pop out some mini Loebs i hope and pray she doesn’t have any daughters.

  16. mln89 says:

    i hear her on wearing cute shirts and skimpy shirts without a bra. i ALWAYS have to have to figure out a way that my breasts are properly supported in a shirt or dress or they will be droopy.

  17. rosemary says:

    Luckily for me i have 20 years until im 40 (:

    • Really? says:

      Ah Rosemary, i, too, remember being 20 and hearing the bitching and moaning about the 40′s…but hear this and hear it well, the next 20 years, if you’re lucky enough to survive it, will pass much more quickly than you could ever imagine, and when you finally make it there, if you’ve spent half as much time developping your spirit and sense of humor as you have with your eye cream and squat thrusts, you will find that it’s not actually not so bad after all and what was all the fuss?

      Youth is not luck, it’s just lack of experience. True luck is when you’re still hot in your 40′s. Mark my word chickadee.

  18. RainBeau says:

    I love how the way she feels about turning 40 is the complete OPPOSITE of what Cameron Diaz feels.

  19. lizzi says:

    I liked the 40 comment. I’m sick of all the celebs saying all these gushing things about being 40. I’m always like STFU, you know its brushing against middle age and you’re sure as hell not happy about it. She looks awesome for 40, but I’ve always wondered if she’s had face work done…. Anyone else?

    • jc126 says:

      Some people may genuinely not care, especially if they’re millionaires and have everything they want in life: an exciting career, kids, spouse, etc.
      I think most people – male and female – HATE getting older. Justifiably so.

  20. Talie says:

    Good for her…that was a pretty awesome interview. And truth be told, I love luxury, too, but I’m poor…so I love it from afar.

  21. GoodCapon says:

    WOW. She looks great for 40!

    I’m not really a Modern Family fan, but I’ve watched a few episodes and I think it’s pretty decent… but her accent is extremely off-putting.

  22. SleepyJane says:

    I don’t like reading this. Turning 30 was difficult for me, but I’m good with my thirties now. I wouldn’t go back to my twenties if I could. I hope turning 40 will be the same way.

    All of the forty-somethings better not have been lying this whole time about how great 40 is.

    • TheOriginalKitten says:

      Yep, everything you just said.

    • judyjudy says:

      Life just keeps getting better and better as the years go by. I’ll hit 40 soon and if the upward trend continues it should be a really great year.

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        Yay, Judyjudy!

        Already feeling better :D

      • SleepyJane says:

        I’ll drink to that (or anything, really). Thanks judyjudy.

      • The Original Tiffany says:

        We aren’t lying! I swear, see my above post. Be happy, well, comfy in your skin. You’ll love it.

        40 is good times!

        Also, on the front CB page, you have JLO, Sofia, Salma, Jennie and Cameron. 40 years does not an ogre make. (Well, Camy should not have messed with herself, but she still has great legs)

  23. Hipocricy says:

    Turning 40 may not be great but it’s not horrible either. Let’s not exaggerate by misusing such a term. Those who do are the ones full of it with no sense of decency getting out of proportions.

    Getting cancer, having a child, a loved one dying (my 40 years old friend is losing her 12 years old son through brain cancer…he has only months to live and she is now developping a cancer too because of the stress knowing she will soon bury her only child while having her own battle to fight), becoming severly handicapped after a grave accident or a vascular accident or having to deal with the economic crisis, now that IS HORRIBLE !

    That woman is 40, healthy, beautiful, has money, love and an healthy child. Turning 40 in those conditions is a blessing. At least she reached that number with all the blessings in her life. Others didn’t have that chance.

    • Mitch Buchanan Rocks! says:

      I very much agree with you. That is harsh about your friend – I really hope celebs like Sofia Vergara read this kind of tragedies and be grateful for what they have instead of running their narcissistic mouths so much. I had an awesomely dear friend who passed away from meningitis – she would have been 40 this year. Sofia should be grateful not complaining.

  24. HotPockets says:

    Eh, I still think age is just a number and I don’t really believe in a 12 month calender anyways, so why would a birthday matter? People put too much energy towards it.

  25. nothistime says:

    I think aging is harder on good looking women. They don’t know how to live without the feedback on their physical appearance. It’s a shame but hard to change society’s reaction to women who are attractive!

    • The Original Tiffany says:

      You know, some good looking women are also smart, funny, loving, etc.

      Your self worth, even if you are beautiful shouldn’t come from that.

      • nothistime says:

        Absolutely, I agree! But beauty opens doors, like it or not. Beautiful women find out what it’s like for the rest of us schmucks as they age and aren’t the center of hotness. Just an observation, no judge judy here. I have a gorgeous friend who is also funny, wise beyond most, so likeable. And she is struggling pretty hard with sagging boobs and wrinkles, etc. I think the attention from being super hot is alittle like an addictive drug. You miss it when it goes…

  26. Cody says:

    Turning 40 was fine for me it was 41 that was hard. All of a sudden I realized I was officially in my 40s. I thought Sofia had a son in her 20s and maybe she had been there and done that. Her son is in college in Boston.

  27. Adrien says:

    Isn’t there a movie about turning 40? …starring Judd Apatow’s wife.

  28. SamiHami says:

    40 didn’t bother me a bit. For me it was 35. I have no idea why.

    I’ll be 48 soon but reading some comments on this thread are making me dread 50!

  29. judyjudy says:

    I got so much grief when I was younger for having small breasts. People (mostly girls) said really mean things to me and my ‘friends’ even started boob-job fund as a joke.

    Yeah, well 20 years later I’m rocking my tiny tank top w/ no bra. So those mean big-boobied-biotches can suck it!

  30. dcypher1 says:

    Like she should complain sophia looks better than most 20 year olds.

    • Susan says:

      Isn’t that the whole point of these kinds of vapid interviews?

      I mean, she’s gorgeous and has a bagin’ body, so what’s the point of even bringing up the turning 40 thing? Doesn’t this kind of canned PR perpetuate the age old standard that a woman’s worth is somehow tied to her age and associated hotness? When was the last time a male actor went on about how hard it was to “turn 40″?

      And if you’re a wealthy celebrity, it’s not like you don’t have the resources to slow the aging process somewhat.

  31. mik says:

    For Hollywood’s standards, I would say turning 40 would be terrifying for any actress.

  32. Susan says:

    Okay, good, she mentioned her boobs.

    We can all go back to our daily routines knowing that the very fabric of the universe is still intact since her boobs were included as a valid discussion topic for this interview.

    Perhaps all the conflict in the middle east could be resolved if a magazine was brave enough to put her on its cover with a headline that read something along the lines of: “Sofia Vergara talks about how she talks to her own boobs!”

    Fingers crossed guys. Fingers crossed.

  33. RobN says:

    I think 40 may be a lot harder for women who have made a life based on their looks. I love my 40′s, I’m smarter, better at my job, financially in a much better place and in a long term very happy marriage, but none of it was based on my average looks. Perhaps if I’d based my career and life on my looks, if everything I had was dependent on them, then the fact that they’re starting to fade would be a lot tougher to deal with.

  34. lisa2 says:

    I think aging is hard on the women that are forever talking about it. Forever making a point. There are many women in Hollywood that are not always talking about their age and looks. Yet they are the ones people are talking about. Believe it or not Every woman in the world is not crying over weight gain or wrinkles or grey hairs. And for the most part those are the women aging with grace and style. Still stunning because they don’t make it the biggest thing about themselves.

    I have watched MF a few times, but Sofia is getting on my nerves and like most people that get some fame she is talking too much.

  35. Xogami says:

    How can anyone NOT care about aging? Not trying to sound nasty but most often than not the ones who don’t care aren’t beauties, so they don’t have nothing to lose, I’m so terrified of losing my looks and I admire Sofia for her refreshing honesty.

    • SleepyJane says:

      I know. Beauty is a blessing and a curse (flings hair over shoulders). Honestly though, unless you are an ogre or something, getting older is tough in a lot of ways.

      I think women often, subconsciously, place high value on their looks. I didn’t realize I did until I started to get older. I now see value in other parts of myself that I often overlooked, which is good. But I don’t think there is a single woman immune to the emotional effects of aging.

    • The Original Tiffany says:

      Here we go. I don’t care that much about aging. Not to be a Samantha Brick, but I would not change my face with anyone-let’s just put it that way.

      It isn’t that scary…yet. I get taken for my daughter’s sister several times a week. I’m not sure when I will start falling apart, but I hope not for a very long time.

      A few of the girls in Cirque are 40 and have the most amazing bodies I have literally ever seen. Upkeep and good genes. I seriously feel like I am MORE beautiful now than when I was younger.

      No death knell at 40. Have a great attitude about aging, it keeps you feeling young-besides, it is going to happen to us all. Be real though, two or three generations ago women looked like hell at 40. We don’t anymore. Life is not as rough and we have lots of good cream available.

      I hope to enjoy every decade and I hope that my beauty becomes aged like a fine wine. I’m thinking Sophia Loren, Helen Mirren, etc.

      • Christina says:

        You’re right – maybe our obsession with turning 40 is a bit anachronistic and outdated. 40 really isn’t ‘old’ these days when many people live to their 80s and beyond. So I suppose 40 shouldn’t really be a milestone anymore – 40 is the new 30 and all that – but psychologically I think it still is.

      • Really? says:

        Hear, hear ladies! Bravo! Sophia may need to crawl back into a cave, or at least let the Loebster drag her back there by her hair. I was fine with her before, she’s beautiful and not overtly annoying, but this latest revelation of hers has poisoned me on her.

        It’s not about sugar coated denails people! It’s about loving life and accepting yourself no matter what anyone else might think. And i for one, do not agree with the V-loeb. You don’t see Monica Belluci crying about being over 40.

        Like Marcy said from Californication: “you can either smack a b!tch or cry like a b!tch.” Sophie can cry. But i’m gonna smack her until she shuts the F up.

    • RobN says:

      The great thing about not being solely a beauty is that we concentrate harder on developing an intellect, gaining career skills, and we seldom utter phrases such as “they don’t got nothing to lose”. Beauty fades, grammar is forever.

      • The Original Tiffany says:

        That was awesome:)

      • The Original Genevieve says:

        For once, I am speechless in awe ;)

        Thank you, RobN. Sheer perfection.

      • XOGAMI says:

        I didn’t write “they got nothing to lose”, I wrote you “don’t have nothing to lose”. Reading comprehension skills, anyone?

      • Isa says:

        Xogami- it still should be, “they don’t have anything to lose.”
        I think what you’re saying is true for Sophia. I mean she’s not really going to get other roles besides “latina bombshell.” And she isn’t trying to become a better actress. Aging is going to be hard on her.
        But you can’t make that generalization about all beautiful women. My smoking hot good looks are just a plus. :)

  37. midnightmoon says:

    just turned 55. best birthday/year ever. have had an interesting/challenging/awful/weird life so far, and cannot wait to find out what happens next. did not have a good year at 30, 40, or 50. Now it’s rock’n'roll.

  38. mander says:

    For those of you not yet 40:

    I peaked in my forties. Never felt more beautiful than I did at 45.

    50+ getting harder, but priorities shift. Not as vain, bigger fish to fry, not so bad.

    Just my 2 cents.

  39. VanillaFrosting says:

    Ugh. It sucks that most people do feel badly about turning 40. That is not even close to the end of your life! You’ve got so much more living to do. I can’t understand it yet as I am only 25.

    40 is just an arbitrary number, anyway. I hope that by the time I get there, I just don’t care that I’m 40. Helps that my husband is 14 years older. I reckon I will just always feel young. :P

  40. Carol thompson says:

    OMG are you kidding me. You should be happy no matter what age you are as long as your healthy. There are allot of people that don’t even make it to 40 or 50. They would have loved to be able to turn 40 and not bitch about it. Why are women so insecure?

  41. Rena says:

    Better to be able to turn 40 with all good happening in your life than being in the position of not turning 40 cause you are no longer alive. She is one shallow woman.

  42. skuddles says:

    Turning 40 was not that big of a deal for me. I felt like that was when life started to make better sense and significant factors seemed to fall into place (for example, I met my hubby that year). It’s a bit scary knowing you are now considered “middle aged” and you can’t help but ponder your mortality more, take stock, etc, but all in all, 40 is a great age. I gave myself permission to give much less of a f*ck about things that really don’t matter, and, in turn, concentrate my time and energies on the people and situations that really do matter. I worry less and allow myself to relax more now.

    I’m not super thrilled about the signs of aging – grey hairs starting to crop up, or a few wrinkles, and the bod is higher maintenance now, but no way would I want to go back to the stressful and chaotic 30′s or 20′s. Too bad some people buy into the bs notion that a woman over 40 is “past her prime”. Such nonsense. 40 is when we grow stronger, smarter, and a whole lot cooler IMO :) Oh, and I love being taken more seriously now that I’m older…

    • The Original Tiffany says:

      skuddles, I love you:) Such a wise answer!

      • skuddles says:

        Aw thanks Tiff, I love you too :D And I love all your comments on this thread too. You’re such a smart, strong, eloquent babe – exactly the kind of woman I truly admire.

    • hypnotoad says:

      +1 Bravo!

    • Issa says:

      Very encouraging to here you met your husband at 40! My mother says her 40′s were her best years. My mother has such positive attitude about her 40′s and believe its helped me to relax about it.

  43. Vixo says:

    She sure is a pretty woman, but I really don’t believe she’s 40. She’s likely 45+.

  44. Newtsgal says:

    Well, I turned 48 today and I love it!

  45. Patricia says:

    I’ll be 46 in a few days and I really love it. I have more success, education, money, and confidence than ever before. How can that be a bad thing? Even w/ wrinkles and menopause – which was no big deal. So far every year gets easier and more fun. No, I don’t look forward to being really sick and old but that’s many yrs away. For now I feel like I am just hitting my stride and am in the prime of my life. I hate to hear that women feel washed up at 40. That’s just ridiculous.

  46. B says:

    Good for her for being honest, I guess, instead of being phony like many other celebrities, but I still find her really obnoxious and incredibly vain.

    She may not have liked turning 40 and she may think that many people are lying to themselves when they gush about it, but many people don’t care about aging or even embrace it, and it’s annoying of her to try to put everyone else down.

  47. Bluebird says:

    Meh, age. I just tell people I live on Jovian time. This year I’ll be 4. :D

  48. mar says:

    Turning 40 when your career super hot is probably amazing!

    I knew her back in the day, when she dated Chris Paciello who owned clubs in South Beach. She was probably in her early 20′s and I was about 19-20. She mean girled me in the bathroom once, ever since then I thought she was a major biyatch.

  49. Ann says:

    I think if you spend your life trading on your looks you’d probably be worried. For the women who don’t, it’s no biggie.

  50. videli says:

    Aging is a personal and individualized process. Whether there’s joy and anguish about it, you’re quite on your own, and sometimes even lonely. I honestly don’t think that you can compare or take solace from the experience of others. Those who have a tight-knit groups of sisters and friends who go through the same experiences are the lucky ones. Whether we choose to rejoice or wail about being 40, let’s not make prescriptions on how we should feel.

  51. Feebee says:

    I like her but I don’t know if I want to hear too much from her. My heart bleeds for her problems with big boobs… try being 5ft2 with natural thunder thighs, ugh.

    Being 40 doesn’t suck. It’s a state of mind. Well… most of the time. I noticed more wrinkles at 30 than 40 (maybe used to them bt then). Things head south… Her ass certainly doesn’t read 40.

  52. hypnotoad says:

    I don’t mind the sailors mouth. I’m not easily offended by that, prissy bitches make me tired.

  53. Belle Epoch says:

    Watch out! I will cut you if you badmouth Sofia!

    This woman was a single mother and is a cancer survivor. She knows perfectly well she is living in a state of grace right now and she is appreciating it. She also doesn’t put up bullshit facade like the Aniston and everybody else.

    Can’t explain the boyfriend. He is not attractive and certainly doesn’t seem to worship her.

  54. Jen34 says:

    If she fears 40, she should get pregnant. I was pregnant at 40 and felt young and sexy.

    Fifty is the one I am dreading. It seems like women are no longer sexually relevant after 50 . It pains me to realize that any man I would be attracted to, would not be interested in me. (It is one reason I am grateful to be married.)

  55. carol says:

    so far, i’m 47 & I do not hate getting older yet. so, we’ll see. ? size 8 slacks.

  56. carol says:

    and i certainly will not give away all my secrets!

  57. JennJennM says:

    *yawn* another fake anecdote about how she hates her (naturallly) big boobies. They were much smaller when she was a young model in her 20s. I don’t thinking aging is what made them bigger, though. I will never understand the appeal of this woman.

  58. Grace says:

    My 40th was incredible :) I partied for three days. If Sofia is having trouble now she’s going to have a breakdown at 45 when she realizes she can’t stop time and the changes are visible to everyone no matter what they say to her lol. She needs to just go ahead and put her therapist on speed dial.

  59. LucyOriginal says:

    “We cannot wear high-necked shirts. We can’t wear belly shirts. We can’t show too much cleavage. It’s always about balance for the large-breasted. *plays tiny violin*”

    So true!

  60. Lauren says:

    People like her truly piss me off. Oh turning 40 is the most horrible thing in the world…NOT! She’s rather lucky because some people don’t get to make it to that age. My own sister died at just weeks before turning 16. And I can’t even describe how different and even strange it feels as her baby sister for me to have grown past her age, so that I the baby sister is now older than my older sister. Sophia might want to think of all the people out there who die at such young ages and would have liked to live longer before she complains about aging gracefully. Aging is a gift in my opinion and people ought to start appreciating things and thinking before they speak

    • erika says:

      Lauren,

      let me just offer a sincere apology to you and your sister. I bet her spirit/beauty and eternal youth lives with you.

      i feel bad as i just ranted like a brat about this ongoing 40 argument and your opinion is i believe the first opinion i’ve ever heard that sums it up..

      i wish you could spread your message further than this board.

  61. Jessica says:

    I think she is smokin’ hot, I am shocked to hear she is 40. That said, she should be grateful she’s alive to reach 40.

  62. Cynthia says:

    I am so sick of this woman talking about her boobs. Her, and others, like, Selma, always reminding us that they have them and what a pain they are. Please, they are the all important body part that men love and some of us wish that we had them!
