Sofia Vergara Shows Off Her Amazing Body: Says Motto Is No Pain, No Cake!


Sofia Vergara covers Shape Magazine

Sofia Vergara is 42-years-old and has a body women half her age would kill for, but the Columbian beauty admits it takes work.

The “Modern Family” star admits she noticed a “softness” developing at the age of 40 and decided it was time to begin working out.

Vergara is featured on the November cover of Shape magazine, showing off her enviable figure.

The brunette beauty admits, “I’ve never been into working out. I was always very happy with what I have. I mean, like any woman I’d complain that my thighs were too big or whatever, but I felt comfortable with my curves – people expected me to have them.”

She started noticing changes she didn’t like in her body as she’s gotten older and decided to take charge.

Sofia said, “I hit 40 and I started seeing a softness everywhere on my body. I read a lot about how your metabolism drops when you age. I knew it was time to do something, so I did”.

The actress says she’s inspired by co-star Julie Bowen’s diligence when it comes to her exercise routine, the mom-of-three wakes up early every day to go for a run before work.

Sofia joked, “Me? I’ll find any excuse to skip exercise.  I’ll say, ‘Sunday? No, it’s the Lord’s day; I can’t work out.'”

She likes to use the pulley system for resistance work-outs.  She explained,  “I use the Megaformer. They call the classes Strengthen, Lengthen, Tone [SLT] in New York. It’s based on Pilates but is much more advanced. I got into it because I have bad knees.  Ever since I was young, I haven’t been able to work out like everyone else – I couldn’t run or do normal squats or anything that puts too much pressure on my knees. But with this machine, I was able to figure out what worked for me. I don’t love it at all, but I love how my body’s changing.”

Sofia, who is now the highest paid actress on television, also lifts free weights, revealing, “I started at only 2lbs and now I’m up to 8 and 10lb weights, which is a lot for me.”

The actress is trying to make healthier eating choices, but does have a sweet tooth.

She said, “When I do indulge, I exercise a bit harder the next day. My workout motto is really simple: No pain, no cake!”

Vergara explained her sweet cravings, saying, “I really need to have sweets. So I try to have them in moderation. It’s so painful! I heard about someone in LA who got hypnotised so they wouldn’t eat candy, I’m seriously looking into that because I’m obsessed.”

The beautiful actress is now dating “True Blood” hunk Joe Manganiello, saying of their romance “It’s been a lot of fun”.

Sofia explains she doesn’t only like him for his good looks, saying, “I want somebody who is kind and makes me laugh, and all those things a woman needs: a person who has drive and is successful in life; someone who takes care of you, makes you feel protected and desired. ‘We all want that, don’t we?”
