39 year old, Colombian actress and model, Sofia Vergara has revealed that she was so skinny as a child, that her friends and family used to call her toothpick. She also admitted that she surprises people with her humour, as she believes that the general consensus is that beautiful women are not funny.
Sofia explained, “You don’t expect beautiful women to be funny. That’s something they always tell me. I guess it’s a very good compliment. You know, I was the class clown in Catholic school, but I never thought I would make a living out of it!” Vergara then spoke of her childhood nickname.
She added, “I was very skinny as a little girl. My nickname was Palillo—toothpick. Then I started getting more voluptuous.” Sofia Vergara stars as Odile, in the upcoming movie The Smurfs, which is released in the US on July 29 and then in the UK on August 10.
