Modern Family star Sofia Vergara tells Net-a-Porter The EDIT that at age 43, it’s been tough to watch herself get older in the public eye. “Watching myself age on screen is awful! There is nothing more disturbing than watching an episode of Modern Family from the first season, then one from seven years later. It just makes me want to kill myself, but what can I do? I’ll be sad when the wolf whistles stop. I’m already sad that men have starting call me señora,” the actress admits. 

"My body has changed with age,” Vergara continues. "People will often say that I wear the same thing on the red carpet, but I know my body: it’s very voluptuous and I’ve got boobs [that are] 32DDD. I need my dresses to have structure—and under armor. There is so much going on under my dresses that I bleed at the end of award ceremonies. In 10 years I think it would be good to have a reduction. I don’t think it’s even going to be an option not to [have surgery], because I’m going to start having back pain.”

While she can’t stop the physical aspects of aging, Vergara does admit that the idea of “feeling old” is totally mental. "Back in my mum’s era, 40 was considered old, but now I don’t think it is. You have to accept that you can look beautiful, but in a different way. I don’t do shorts or pink anymore, and I’ve softened my eye makeup. In Colombia, once women hit 40, they automatically cut their hair short. I used to think I would do that too, but when it came to it, I thought, 'Why should I cut my hair? It makes you look older!'"
