Despite Vergara's tiny waist, the "Modern Family's" ample bust makes it difficult for her to just throw on any old thing and stun. She's got to carefully consider her chestiness — particularly before those big red carpet events.
"I have learned that not everything looks good on me because of my boobs," the 40-year-old Colombian beauty admits in the new issue of Cosmopolitan. "Magazines will say, 'She is wearing the same shape again.' I'm like, yes! So what? My boobs are real. They're a 32F. I can't wear something backless, because what holds them up? Then the magazines would be saying, 'What was she thinking with those sagging tits?'"
Well, they might not say it exactly like that, but the fiancée of businessman Nick Loeb and mother of a 20-year-old son is right. She's been selected as a member of that group of female celebs whose every outfit is picked apart.
But no matter what she's wearing, her curvy figure means she's automatically deemed "sexy," alongside women such as Christina Hendricks, Scarlett Johansson, and Kim Kardashian. Still, it's something she doesn't always necessarily feel.
"No one can be a sex kitten every day, and anyone who tells you that is lying," Vergara shares. "But I do wear negligees and Japanese silk robes [to bed]. For a long time, I lived alone with my son and only saw my boyfriends in a hotel. So at home, I slept in old T-shirts. I realized when I moved in with Nick that I couldn't do that. Now, I only keep nice pajamas around, because whatever is there, I'm going to wear."
Vergara expects to model her pretty PJs for years to come, although she and Loeb are in no rush to tie the knot.
"He was already married with a big wedding and I was already married with a big wedding, so we're going to do something but not right now," she explains. "When he proposed, it was my birthday, and I'd flown more than 100 family and friends to Mexico for six days of partying. It took me forever to arrange the logistics! If I had known I was going to get engaged, I don't do this stupid birthday."
Some tabloid reports claim that the two are even further into the future, and planning to expand their brood via surrogate. Not surprisingly, that's completely false.
"Well, because I froze my eggs. I had to go to my doctor's office a hundred million times to do injections. The [rumor] probably came from that," Vergara says. "My doctor had told me 'We have a small window.' I said, 'That's so rude!' I already have a kid, so I never thought I would need to do that. But I will have to use a surrogate, because I had thyroid cancer and lots of radiation. I don't want to wait forever, but not yet, because I'm working like an animal."
Ask Vergara about her five-year plan, and the answer is simple: there's not one.
"I've never had a plan for anything," she insists. "I know I'm not going to get any more shows like 'Modern Family.' If it ends in five years, it would be great to do movies and focus on things like my Kmart line. Maybe have a kid. But I am going to be working my whole life. I love making money. I really love it!"
