Sofia Vergara Slams Plastic Surgery, Madonna and "Looking Like a Freak"

Since her breakout performance (as vivacious mom Gloria) on the hit ABC comedy Modern Family, Sofia Vergara has quickly become a sex symbol. But, the 38-year-old Emmy nominee insists: what you see is what you get. Well, for the most part.

The Colombian native, in a new interview with Esquire magazine, said she once considered breast reduction surgery -- but says her mother told her, "God is going to punish you if you cut them."

And she insists plastic surgery is not for her. "L.A. is crazy. The women all look the same now," Vergara argues. "That thing with the cheeks. Like Madonna. Who do they think they're fooling? It doesn't make them look young. You end up looking like a freak."

That said, the actress says she has actually changed one major feature of her appearance to boost her career: her hair color! Of her change from natural blonde to sultry brunette, she says, "If you see my family, you wouldn't believe it. Everyone looks like they're Polish. Blond with blue eyes. But I wasn't getting any jobs in L. A. They were confused. They have this stereotype that Latin people have to look like Salma Hayek. The minute I made my hair dark, then they believed that I am Latina."
