New York, Feb 23 (ANI): Curvy Sofia Vergara has revealed that she was once told she needed to lose weight to make it big.

“Somebody told me, ‘You have to lose weight. You will look better in the pictures. You see all the actresses and how they look’,” the New York Daily News quoted the Columbian actress, as telling CBS show ‘The Talk’.

But Vergara refused to change her curvaceous shape.

“I told her, ‘They might look better in pictures, but I look better naked’,” she said.

The ‘Modern Family’ star admitted that she used to have trouble finding outfits to wear to events because the size zero dresses sent by designers didn’t fit her hourglass figure.

“No matter what I did, they would only come up to [my waist]. It was a nightmare,” Vergara recalled.

The 38-year-old further explained that Columbian women are held to different standards than American women.

“We’re not expected to be as thin or skinny. And we’re a little less conscious about our bodies,” said Vergara.

“We’re more in touch with our sexuality. That’s why every guy wants a hot Latin girl. They know,” she added. (ANI)
