Tapped to share her story of how she got into the acting industry, the "Modern Family" actress revealed her father's disapproval which led her to talk about her breasts.
"My father told me if I did anything artistic, I would look like a hooker," the Colombia-born beauty said at L.A.'s Shrine Auditorium where the event took place. "I told him, 'With these huge boobs that I inherited from your mother, I already look like a hooker!' "
Vergara, donning a white gold liquid lame gown by Donna Kara Atelier, was one of the actors tapped to open the January 27 show with an introduction of themselves. Later that night, the 40-year-old actress and her "Modern Family" co-stars were honored with an award for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series. She, however, lost best comedy actress title to Tina Fey of "30 Rock".
