It's almost the weekend, the sun is shining, and Sofia Vergara posed naked for Women's Health Magazine. Uh yeah, I'd say it's a pretty damn good day so far and I'm sure her 13 million Instagram followers would agree with me! We're obviously big fans of Vergara around these parts, naked or otherwise. She's a fantastically talented and funny as hell actress who brings a whole lotta joy to my life (and the lives of millions) with her role as Gloria on Modern Family. Don't be a hater—that show is money!
Perhaps the craziest part about this whole posing nude thang is that Sofia is 45-years-old! Hell, I wouldn't care if she were 65, if she wants to walk around in her birthday suit—all the more power to her! What's amazing is that she's breaking barriers for middle-aged women everywhere. Gone are the days where they're expected to be boring soccer moms recycling old maternity clothes and putting roasts in the oven. They should be embracing their bodies and sexuality to the fullest and I'm happy to see that Vergara is helping to pioneer that! In her interview with Women's Health Magazine, Vergara gets real about what it was like to pose naked at her age—
"I told [my rep], 'I'm going to be 45 years old! Stop putting me in naked things! Let me age with dignity!' People say, 'Oh, you look like you're in your twenties.' Well, it's not true. Our skin is different." She tugs at the not-exactly-loose flesh on the back of her tan hand. "I had never thought of the word pore, then I'm like, 'Sh-t! What do I do with these?' " Still, Sofia couldn't say no. "Here's a woman, 45, being able to show her body. It's not like before, when it was just young girls."
