Quotes

Quote1 I'm a natural blonde. But when I started acting, I would go to auditions and they didn't know where to put me because I was voluptuous and had the accent--but I had blonde hair. It was ignorance: they thought every Latin person looks like Salma Hayek. Quote2
Quote1 If you see me without mascara, my eyelashes are completely blonde, I'm very, very fair-skinned. Quote2
Quote1 My father told me if I did anything artistic, I would look like a hooker. I told him, "With these huge boobs that I inherited from your mother, I already look like a hooker!". Quote2
Quote1 [on turning down the controversial role of Charlotte Bless in The Paperboy (2012)]
It was a fun role. I was so glad that I didn't have to pee in anyone's face, though. I was glad it was not me. For [Nicole Kidman], that's nothing. For me, it would have been three weeks of stress. How am I going to pee in there?
Quote2
Quote1 [on her discomfort with her breasts at age 13]
I wanted surgery. I told my mom, "As soon as I'm older, please take these boobs away." She said, "Sofia, shut up. When you're 18, it will be different." I was like "Why would I want these huge boobs?". I'm a 34DD. It's hard to dress. No matter what I wear, I look like a stripper.
Quote2
Quote1 [on her current feelings about her breasts]
I'm grateful I have them, and honestly, they've helped me a lot in my career. And I've always felt sexy.
Quote2
Quote1 [on her role in The Three Stooges (2012)]
I play a mean woman that tries to manipulate the Three Stooges into killing her husband so that she gets all the money.
Quote2
Quote1 [on her younger brother deported after being arrested]
To see somebody dying over 10 years, little by little, that's the worst punishment. Now he's like another person.
Quote2
Quote1 Los Angeles is crazy. The women all look the same now. That thing with the cheeks. Like Madonna. Who do they think they're fooling? It doesn't make them look young. You end up looking like a freak. Quote2
Quote1 People shouldn't stay married because of the kids. That's torture for everyone. Quote2
