Modern Family actress Sofia Vergara says her boobs are too big

Sofia Vergara says her father warned her against a showbiz career as she looks ‘like a hooker.’

‘I grew up in Barranquilla, Colombia, in a very traditional Catholic home,’ the Modern Family actress, 40, says.

‘My father told me if I did anything artistic, I would look like a hooker.

‘I told him, “With these huge boobs that I inherited from your mother, I already look like a hooker!”‘

Despite her father’s warning, Sofia‘s decision to act anyway has clearly paid off.

The actress was nominated for a SAG award for best actress in a TV comedy, though she lost out to Tina Fey for her role in 30 Rock.

However Modern Family took away a gong at the awards, held on Sunday, for best ensemble in a comedy series.
