“Modern Family” star Sofia Vergara recently graced the cover of Women’s Health magazine.

In her photos, the 45-year-old actress posed nude on the pages of the publication. In one of her snaps, Vergara wears black underwear and covers her bare breasts with her two hands. On the cover of Women’s Health, Vergara sits on a wooden stool with the left side of her body facing the camera.

While speaking with the publication, Vergara expressed how happy she was to have posed for Women’s Health. “Here’s a woman, 45, being able to show her body. It’s not like before, when it was just young girls who would make the cover of a magazine… It’s not about having muscle or cut abs. I don’t have abs because I’m not ‘I need to be like a fit model with a perfect body.’ That would take too much effort!” she said (via Entertainment Weekly).

Vergara also doesn’t think that she’s not athletic enough to get a six-pack. After all, the actress has bad knees and very thin bones. “I wish I could be a little more athletic, but when you’re born with these gigantic boobs… I’ve had them since 13, and then they got bigger when I was pregnant and had the baby,” she said.

But even though Vergara no longer aspires to have abs, this doesn’t mean that she doesn’t exercise regularly. The actress sees to it that she works out at least four times a week. And unlike her husband, Joe Manganiello, those four hours are like torture for the actress. But since the “Magic Mike” actor built a nice gym for them at their house, Vergara feels that she could no longer have any excuses.

At the end of the day, Vergara simply wants to age gracefully so she could accept how her body has changed and would still change over the years. “I’m 45. Even if you want to, at this time in your life, you can’t be perfect. It’s not that you hate it, or that you’re upset about it, but it is our reality. We are changing. I see t happening to me,” she said.

Vergara’s Women’s Health issue will be available on newsstands starting Aug. 8.
