Sofia Vergara has revealed that a former publicist advised her to undergo breast reduction surgery early in her career.

The Modern Family actress told Health magazine that she was told that she would not be taken seriously in Hollywood because of her curvy figure, advice which she ultimately decided to ignore.

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

"My mother almost had a heart attack. She was like, 'God is going to punish you! You can't cut your boobs!' I don't regret not doing it, because now it's become a big part of [Modern Family character] Gloria."

However, Vergara added that she was not always comfortable with her body and took years to embrace her flaws.

"Not everybody's confident their whole life. For a long time, I thought that my boobs were too big and I was, like, 14 years old, and I already had these huge boobs," she recalled.

"I was very skinny also. And now that I'm almost 40 - we always have our insecurities as women. We're never happy!"

Vergara recently said that she loves looking like a transvestite and purposely plays up her campier side.

She previously attributed her shapely figure to being a young mother and giving birth to her son as a teenager.
