Sofia Vergara: "I Look Like a Transsexual"

The voluptuous Modern Family star says she knows her looks is "over the top" and explains why she has so many gay fans

Sofia Vergara knows her fashion and beauty style can be "over the top." The Emmy-nominated actress, 39, admits that when she played a transsexual in the 2006 comedy Grilled it wasn't difficult for her to pull off the M-to-F character.

"I look like a transsexual anyway. I'm a woman, but I'm super-exaggerated with my boobs, my ass, my makeup and my accent," Vergara tells the Advocate.  "When I get ready for an event, I always look at myself in the mirror and say, 'I look like a transvestite!' I love it."

The Modern Family star, who hails from Colombia, also tells the LGBT magazine that she's "always had plenty of gay fans" because she's "voluptuous and a little over the top."

"Gay men always tell me how fabulous I am. I think they want to be Gloria," Vergara says of her beloved TV character. "All my fans must be very respectful, because I've never had a guy or a girl come up and grab my ass."

When asked if she has any girl crushes, the Latin American beauty admits to having many -- but one special actress tops the list.

"I love Halle Berry," she says. "She's perfection. Every time I see her, I want to give her a standing ovation because she's so flawless."
