Sofia Vergara is InStyle’s April cover girl! With her killer curves and irresistible comic timing, the Modern Family star has taken the stereotype of the sultry Latin spitfire and spun it into gold, landing her at the top of Hollywood’s hot list. And that’s not something she takes lightly: “I am on these lists for ‘best ass’ or ‘most beautiful’ with women like Mila Kunis, who’s, like, 20 years old,” she said. “I have a son that age!” Though, she’s happy to be there. “Part of my career has always been because of the way I look,” she said. “I’m not ashamed. It has opened doors. But I also know that if I didn’t have something else, I’d be long gone.” What she has is the whole package, complete with crack timing, sly self-deprecation, and savvy business sense, including a spokesperson gig for Cover Girl and a line for K-Mart. “I love jewelry—rings, earrings, bracelets, necklaces, you name it,” she said. (Her line for K-Mart includes lots of those things.) “If my stylist didn’t stop me, I’d go out looking like a Christmas tree.” Read more of our exclusive interview with Vergara in the new April issue, on newsstands Friday.
