The actress once wanted to reduce her breasts, but she is glad she did not do it because they 'helped' her a lot in her career.
Voluptuous actress Sofia Vergara was desperate to undergo breast reduction surgery as a teen, because she thought her famous curves made her look like a "stripper". The lovely Latina star of TV show "Modern Family" started busting out at the age of 13, and she begged her mum to let her go under the knife because she was so self-conscious.
Vergara tells America's Self magazine, "I wanted surgery. I told my mom, 'As soon as I'm older, please take these boobs away.' She said, 'Sofia, shut up. When you're 18, it will be different.' I was like, 'Why would I want these huge t**s? I'm a 34 DD. It's hard to dress. No matter what I wear, I look like a stripper."
But the Colombian beauty is thankful her conservative mother never agreed, "I'm grateful I have them, and honestly, they've helped me a lot in my career. And I've always felt sexy."
