Sofia Vergara may hate turning 40, but there’s one thing she’ll always love: money. And she isn’t shy or ashamed about saying it. She told Glam Belleza Latina magazine her truth about making money and why she’s making no apologies. Via People:
I think that the concept of being sexy and smart is difficult for many to grasp. Most people are more comfortable with the notion of ‘sexy bimbo.’ And I have to admit that I’ve capitalized on that to negotiate a couple of times, when the ‘smart ones’ think I have no idea what I can deliver, and I end up costing them more.
I’m not ashamed to say I love making money. I like business, and the truth is I save way more than I spend. I invest. I plan for the future. I have a special eye for opportunities and work harder than anyone might expect. It is fun to shock people with my business ideas. Most people just see me as Gloria [from Modern Family].
She does indeed love business. It’s estimated that last year she made $30 million from endorsements alone in Diet Pepsi, Kmart, CoverGirl, State Farm, and Comcast’s Xfinity brand. Holy cow. This year she signed contracts with Rooms To Go (furniture store) and the medicine Synthroid (it treats hypothyroidism). I wonder if there’s anything she’d turn down.
What do you think? Is what she said empowering or in this economy, just tacky?
