Sofia Vergara regrets not working out
The 'Modern Family' star has confessed she only realised the importance of regular exercise when she hit her landmark 40th birthday two years ago.

The brunette beauty told Shape magazine: "Well, everyone knows that I've never been into working out.

"Then I hit 40 and I started seeing a softness everywhere on my body. I read a lot about how your metabolism drops when you age. I knew it was time to do something, so I did.

"I wish I had worked out more when I was younger and taken it as seriously as I do now."

Sofia, 42 - who is dating hunky actor Joe Manganiello - added that although she was "happy" with her body as a youngster, she prefers her new shape after putting in the hours at the gym.

She explained: "I was always very happy with what I have. I mean, like any woman I'd complain that my thighs were too big or whatever, but I felt comfortable with my curves -- people expected me to have them.

"My body is looking better than it used to."
