It’s no secret that Sofia Vergara is both a funny and talented actor, but in the August issue of Women’s Health magazine, the Modern Family star is also spilling some sage words on body positivity and body love.
Featured on the cover of the magazine’s “Nude Issue,” HuffPost that Vergara finds her place on the glossy’s front to mark a shift in the media industry.
“Here’s a woman, 45, being able to show her body,” she said. “It’s not like before, when it was just young girls who would make the cover of a magazine.”
For Women’s Health editor-in-chief Amy Keller Laird, the entire issue — including Vergara’s cover — is meant to be inspiring and thought-provoking, according to HuffPost, encouraging women to simultaneously feel comfortable in their own skin and to consider nakedness in the abstract.
Vergara told Women’s Health that for her, this means being kinder to herself and accepting change.
“I’m 45,” she said, according to HuffPost. “Even if you want to, at this time in your life, you can’t be perfect. It’s not that you hate it, or that you’re upset about it, but it is our reality…We’re changing. I see it happening to me. I want to look my age, but I want to look great. I think if you are obsessed with this ‘I want to look younger’ thing, you’re going to go crazy.”
Wise words to keep in mind.
