Sofia Vergara - Sofia Vergara Warned Against Breast Op By Mother

Sofia Vergara's mother told her she would be "punished" if she had a breast reduction.

The 39-year-old actress was advised to have her 34DD assets reduced when she was beginning her career in order to be taken seriously, much to the horror of her parent.

She recalled: "When I moved to America, I was more voluptuous, and I felt a little different. My publicist [at the time] told me, 'I think you should just reduce your boobs because nobody's going to take you seriously here.

"[My mother] almost had a heart attack. She was like, 'God is going to punish you! You can't cut your boobs!' "

Sofia decided not to follow the advice and doesn't regret keeping her curves as they are.

She told the new issue of Health magazine: "I don't regret not doing it, because now it's become a big part of my character on 'Modern Family'."

While she didn't have the operation, the 39-year-old beauty - who is in a relationship with politician Nick Loeb - admits she used to be insecure about the size of her breasts.

She said: "Not everybody's confident their whole life. For a long time, I thought that my boobs were too big. I was, like, 14 years old, and I already had these huge boobs. I was very skinny also. And now that I'm almost 40, we always have our insecurities as women. We're never happy!"

However, Sofia has eventually grown to love herself as she is.

She added: "I'm a Latin woman: I'm voluptuous, I'm loud, I'm exactly what a Latin woman is. I prefer to be called that than, 'You're boring; you have a flat ass!' "
