Sofia Vergara's diet: Not what you'd think...

We're normally irritated when celebrities swear they maintain their red carpet-ready figures by eating pizza topped with chocolate chips and Doritos, but as it's impossible to be irritated with Sofia Vergara, we're letting her slide on her so-called "diet (or lack thereof)."

If you missed the memo, the 39-year-old "Modern Family" actress is actually a mom in real life, too, and her son Manolo is spilling his mom's secrets on what she eats to maintain that (infamously curvacious) shape.

On his NuevOn YouTube show, "Mi Vida Con Toty," Manolo takes us behind-the-scenes of life with his famous mom, who, apparently, "eats like a crazy lady."

"My mother has always been very thin, and a lot of people ask me about her gym regimen - spinning, Pilates, yoga," Manolo says in the episode. "Whenever somebody asks me about her workout routine, I laugh in their faces."

Cut to scene after scene of Vergara eating one yummy-looking treat after another, including what looks like plenty of cake. (We thought our adoration for the actress couldn't grow any larger, but alas, it has.)

    I am astonished at most of the comments here. I watch Modern Family on occasion and love her character. She is funny and talented. Her accent is part of the charm. kit you find her voice annoying watch something else! Everyone has different tastes; we are individuals not clones! As far as her eating or lack of it...aren't we all the wise ones who can in ignorance make assumptions about someone we do not know? Some people have a metabolism that lets them eat whatever they want and they just don't gain weight...I am not one of them but if she is more power to her! As to if she doesn't watch it when she ages a bit more look out...so what? Who says outer beauty (which is all in the eye of the beholder) really matters in the long run. To all you "haters " out there....wonder what people would post about you????

  3. Deport Sofia Back To Her Dirty Colombia

    Sofia is the easiest lay in Hollywood like she was in Latin America. Call girl to the rich and famous. Colombian women are known for being loose and easy.

      Excuse me, I'm a very pretty woman from Barranquilla too and to this day I can say that I have not done any thing that
      I don't want my children to know about me. Colombia has very traditional and religious families. Please do not generalize like that.

    Wow, a lot of envious people here. Probably a bunch of fat ugly women. She is gorgeous, and 99.9% of straight men would agree with that statement. She is also really funny and great for her role. She is actually one of the funniest characters in Modern Family!

    Another lying actress claiming to never diet or to being a "natural" blonde. Get real Sofia...you are almost 40 and you need to stop living off your looks like you have all your life.

    Sofia is the biggest lay in Hollywood!! In Colombia & Latin America she was known as a high-class call girl to the rich and famous. Seeing her fast rise in Hollywood with no great talent...it seems that she's up to her old tricks with the wealthy Hollywood types.

    Isn't it funny how one can say she is "curvaceous", but if a guy were to say she "has a nice chest" or an "awesome rack", he is a jerk/pervert.

      so true. Jealousy seems to be the reason I guess. Not matter how good or bad a famous person, they must be doing something right.........they raking in the money. I like her, she seems down to earth. I do not watch her show, but I do have her on my Facebook pages, and she's so funny!

    I have a theory that some people have the genes to eat a lot without gaining an ounce and others don't. I've worked for 25 years with woman who every day eats humongous, sugary, gourmets desserts after lunch. Still skinny as a rail. Yes, I'm jealous.

    This just demonstrates how messed up this society is about policing women's bodies. Do we really need another, "Wow, woman eats food" article? And she's pretty, and she eats food! No kidding.

      I couldn't even watch Saturday Night Live the other week becasue of her voice. Sure with the right clothes on she has a nice body but I'm guessing without those clothes nobody would be thinking all that highly of her anymore.

      Elaine, hating one woman's voice doesn't make someone a misogynist. He didn't say he hates every woman's voice. I'm female, and I can't stand this woman's voice either. I don't hold it against her, but I'm not inclined to watch anything she acts in either.

    We all have the potential to do exactly what Sophia's son touts. What he may not see (or maybe he does) is the graceful finger down the throat when the audience is gone. Not only do I not believe she noshes on cake and pizza "like a crazy lady", I believe that IF she does, it never finds the colon elevator.

  28. Sofia Vergara is not a good actor neither she is pretty enough..

    I wonder with how many big shots , Sofia had to be 'friendly' or intimated , to be in a television show, she is not a good actor, her face is like a big moon, fat legs and frame, and her accent is terrible.

    She's 39 now and has good metabolism, and she is one of the lucky ones. BUT, age will catch up with her, and when that happens, everything in your body slows down, and if you don't change your eating habits, you will gain weight, and a lot of it. If she has self-discipline–like Jane Fonda–she will always look gorgeous. But if she doesn't watch it, she will turn into a rolly polly older lady. It's a fact.

    • Sofia Vergara should learn how to speak English

      Every time that woman is on tv talking I can not understand what is she saying, her accent is so heavy and annoying , I just can not understand why she is on tv, she is in the full figure side and in few years she will be as fat as many people here. Unless, she goes back to Colombia and gets new plastic surgery.

    Sorry I'm not buying it. This woman works out every day and rarely eats cake or pizza. When she does she makes sure a camera is there to catch it. So quit the lying Sofia, you may be beautiful but you are not funny anymore.
