Sofia Vergara: "I'm Grateful" for My 34DDs

The Modern Family star says she loves her large chest (it's even helped her career!) -- but that wasn't always the case

Modern Family's Sofia Vergara has a figure most of us would kill for -- but she hasn't always been so pleased with her assets.

"When I was 13, I got these ridiculous boobs. I wanted surgery," the Emmy-nominated star says in the October issue of Self. "I told my mom, 'As soon as I’m older, please take these boobs away.' She said, 'Sofía, shut up. When you’re 18, it will be different.' I was like, 'Why would I want these huge t—? I’m a 34DD.'"

Vergara says she still has issues about the fact that her cups runneth over. "It’s hard to dress, she says. "No matter what I wear, I look like a stripper."  But she has learned to appreciate the positives that come with her body.

"I’m grateful I have them," she admits. "And honestly, they’ve helped me a lot in my career. And I’ve always felt sexy."

“"’m a natural blonde," she tells the mag. "But when I started acting, I would go to auditions and they didn’t know where to put me because I was voluptuous and had the accent - but I had blonde hair. It was ignorance: They thought every Latin person looks like Salma Hayek. The moment I dyed my hair dark, it was, ‘Oh, she’s the hot Latin girl.’ I loved it. I’d always felt a little ‘too much’ as a blonde, like a big-mouth version of Pamela Anderson. Being brunette toned me down a bit."
