Sofia Vergara Covers Shape (March 2011)

16 Feb



Beautiful Sofia Vergara covers the March 2011 issue of Shape Magazine.

Here’s what the 38-year-old Modern Family actress had to share:

On being make-up free: ‘If I walk outside without lipstick, I feel naked,’ the actress, 38, tells the March issue of Shape, in which she’s named the sexiest woman in Hollywood.

On her favourite body part: ‘I’m sure men would tell you it’s my boobs, but I like my eyes,’ she says. ‘They have a natural cats-eye shape, so I try to play that up.’

Of her frequent workout sessions with trainer Gunnar Peterson: ‘Oh, I hate it. But I also know that at my age, I’m almost 40, I have to do it to maintain my figure. When I can, I try to do Latin dancing for exercise because it’s so much fun and I just love the music. Two hours before I go [to the gym], I’m already wishing it was over. I psychologically fool myself into believing it’s part of my job.’

On being proud of her age and heritage: ‘I think when women reach a certain age, they look better with a little fat in their face,’ she tells the issue. ‘I’m lucky I’m Latin because people expect me to be a bit more plump.’

On how Latin women are more confident: ‘Confident people have a way of carrying themselves that makes others more attracted to them,’ she says. ‘Latin women are very comfortable with their bodies and their sexuality. We aren’t afraid to show that off a little bit more.’

On her family’s approach to beauty: ‘All the women in my family are that way. We put make-up on to give birth. When I started feeling contractions with my son [Manolo, 19], the first thing I did was wash and blow-dry my hair before I went to the hospital. You never know how long you’ll be in labor. It could be days until you’re able to take a shower.’
