Sofia Vergara is no bimbo

Sofia Vergara is no bimbo

Sofia Vergara says don’t let the tits fool you — she’s a brilliant businesswoman. And if you do underestimate her, she’ll be laughing all the way to the bank. She tells the new issue of Glam Belleza Latina:

“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].

“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 capitalised 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.”

Yeah, I can totally see how every single negotiation session goes exactly Sofia’s way. I mean, she brings a major advantage to every single meeting . .  or should I say she brings two major advantages to every meeting. And those two things are bigger and better than anyone else’s: her ability to frame complex appearance fee structures in her head; and her knowledge of cross-border tax codes. I kid, I kid. Let’s cut the shit for once — anyone who has to speak to this woman has to stare at her moneymakers and not try to motorboat them. Good luck with that, entertainment lawyers.
