Sofia Vergara's character in her new movie Fading Gigolo was inspired by writer/director John Turturro's busty spectacles designer, who also appears in the film. The Barton Fink star tells WENN he didn't have to look far to find the woman behind his movie creation - he has been buying glasses from her for years. Turturro explains, "Sofia's character is inspired by my friend Salima and she designed my glasses. She is very well endowed and she has sold me many glasses over the years by thrusting herself in front of me: 'John what do you think of these glasses?' "I've bought so many pairs of terrible glasses from her over the years! She's a great lady and Sofia has the kind of spirit that is similar to hers so it was a perfect match. She's actually in the film as one of my clients. She's the lady in bed when I have the flower in my hair." Turturro admits it was a joy to work with Vergara, adding, "Sofia is very gifted and if I would have known that she thinks more in Spanish than in English I would have put more of the movie in Spanish."
