When it comes to curves, Sofia Vergara's motto is straight to the point: If you got it, flaunt it.
The Modern Family star, who plays foxy, feisty Colombian housewife Gloria Delgado Pritchett on the Emmy-winning series, says she isn't bothered by the extra attention she gets for owning her sex appeal.
