Sofia Vergara, who is 45, proudly posed nude on the cover of Women’s Health magazine and opened up about life as a sex symbol after 40.
“Here’s a woman, 45, being able to show her body. It’s not like before, when it was just young girls who would make the cover of a magazine,” the actress shared with Women’s Health.
“It’s not about having muscle or cut abs,” Vergara says. “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! I don’t know if I’m strong. I have bad knees and very thin bones; I can barely do a pushup,” she says. “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 and had the baby.”
“It’s like torture for me,” Vergara says. “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.” But, she adds, “Joe built a very nice gym in the house, so I don’t have any excuses.”
