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.
If you see me without mascara, my eyelashes are completely blonde, I’m very, very fair-skinned.
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!”.
[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?
[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.
