he’s con­sid­ered one of the sex­i­est women in the world, fa­mous for her en­vi­able hour­glass fig­ure, but ac­tress Sofia Ver­gara has ad­mit­ted she finds work­ing out “tor­ture” as her “gi­gan­tic boobs” get in the way, and will never have abs as it’s “too much ef­fort.”

The star posed naked for a mag­a­zine photo shoot and also opened up about age­ing, re­veal­ing that she’s made peace with never hav­ing a “per­fect” fig­ure.”

Sofia said: “I’m 45. Even if you want to, at this time in your life you can’t be per­fect. It’s not that you hate it, or that you’re up­set about it, but it is our re­al­ity.”


She added: “We’re chang­ing. I see it hap­pen­ing to me. I want to look my age, but I want to look great. I think if you are ob­sessed with this “I want to look younger” thing, you’re go­ing to go crazy.”

Colom­bian-born Sofia mar­ried star Joe Man­ganiello, 40, in 2015, and is mum to son Manolo, 24, from her short-lived mar­riage to her high school sweet­heart. Sofia was also em­broiled in a bit­ter court bat­tle with ex-fi­ancé Nick Loeb in a bid to stop him gain­ing the right to use frozen pre-em­bryos the cou­ple cre­ated while still to­gether in 2013.

The star ad­mits it’s tough main­tain­ing her age-de­fy­ing fig­ure, work­ing out four times a week with a per­sonal trainer, and says she has no ex­cuses to avoid ex­er­cise af­ter fit­ness fan Joe built a gym in their LA home.

Sofia said: “I’m in a bad mood two hours be­fore, I’m in a bad mood while I’m do­ing it, I’m in a bad mood at the end be­cause I have to sched­ule the next class.

“I wish I could be a lit­tle more ath­letic, but when you’re born with these gi­gan­tic boobs… I’ve had them since I was 13, and then they got big­ger when I was preg­nant.”


She added: “I don’t have abs be­cause I’m not ‘I need to be like a fit model with a per­fect body.’ That would take too much ef­fort!”

Af­ter mak­ing a name for her­self as a model in her na­tive Colom­bia at just 17, Sofia rose to global star­dom in 2009 when she was cast in hit sit­com

as Glo­ria Del­gadoPritch­ett where she’s the top earn­ing ac­tress on US tele­vi­sion, rak­ing in £32m last year.

Sofia pre­vi­ously said: “I work out be­cause of my job and be­cause I’m in a place where I have to look good and fit into those tiny lit­tle dresses on the red car­pet. I try to eat healthily when I go out for din­ner. I or­der chicken or fish with veg­eta­bles. I don’t or­der pizza or pasta but I stuff my­self with dessert.”

She added: “My beauty regime has def­i­nitely changed since turn­ing 40, too. I use sun­tan lo­tion when­ever I go out. Once you have a sag­ging neck, that’s it!”
