Sofia Vergara has proudly showed off her body in a nude magazine shoot as she discussed getting older.
The 45-year-old Modern Family star looks flawless in the image, in which she is seen posing completely naked with her hands placed strategically to protect her modesty for Women's Health magazine's annual Naked Issue.
Sofia highlights in the accompanying interview how it's refreshing to see an older woman show off her body, whereas many publications prefer to feature younger women.
"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," she explained to health publication. "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. We're changing. I see it happening to me."
However, the youthful-looking Hot Pursuit actress, who is the mother of a 24-year-old son, Manolo, doesn't feel any pressure to work hard to look younger, and in fact embraces the ageing process.
"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," she cautioned. "People say, 'Oh, you look like you're in your twenties.' Well, it's not true. Our skin is different. I had never thought of the word 'pore,' then I'm like, 'S**t! What do I do with these?'"
But her one concession to her looks is to workout three or four times a week, which she admits she doesn't particularly enjoy.
"It's like torture for me," grimaced Sofia. "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."
