With voluptuous curves and A-plus, um, assets, Modern Family's Sofia Vergara embraces her beauty and – when it comes to going under the knife – her age.
"A woman should never have [plastic surgery] to look younger," she tells Ladies' Home Journal in its January issue. "To fix little things here and there, maybe. To look a little fresher, okay. But you're always going to look your age."
As the actress, 38, continues to get laughs – and looks of admiration – in her feisty portrayal of Gloria Pritchett on ABC's Emmy-winning sitcom, she's not shy about her enviable sex appeal, or her signature, authentic accent.

Betty White scoffs at the question.
"Does desire melt away with age? I'm waiting for that day to come," the 88-year-old tells AARP Magazine in its November/December issue. "Sexual desire is like aging," she continues, pointing at her head. "A lot of it is up here."
White, who shares the magazine's cover with two of her You Again costars Jamie Lee Curtis and Kristin Bell, tells the magazine that her first marriage was totally physical. "I married my first husband because we wanted to sleep together," she says. "It lasted six months and we were in bed for six months."
After a disastrous second marriage, White met game show host Allen Ludden. She says they were a match made in heaven – even though she wasn't initially interested. "He bought me a beautiful ring and I threw it back at him," she recalls, "so he wore it on a chain around his neck. He said, 'I'm going to wear it until you put it on your finger.' "

"She's really old. I think of her as an old friend. I mean an old friend. But listen, she's got moves you wouldn't believe. She’s totally flexible in the hip area. Her arms are stiff, but the hips? Totally flexible."

Now that she's sealed a deal for two books to be published next year, Betty White is already polishing up her byline with a signed piece in the Hollywood Reporter, reminiscing about her first Emmy win – in 1952.
"The Emmys weren't a big thing back then – more like a little local awards show," writes White, 88. Compared to current ceremony – the 62nd annual Emmys will air live on NBC Sunday at 8 p.m. ET – in the early days, "There were no photographers and no red carpet. You just got out of your car and walked into the dinner. It wasn't even an event where people mingled and partied. You came for the awards and left."

Sean Penn apparently has his sights on Betty White – specifically her Emmy-winning Saturday Night Live look.
Sporting a dark outfit, guyliner and earrings, the Oscar winner, 50, was playing a retired rocker on the Dublin, Ireland, set of This Must Be the Place, while also seemingly taking a few cues from the 88-year-old actress.
With a finishing touch of red lipstick and a frizzy wig, Penn's transformation mirrored White's character as a "Scared Straight Program" jail representative from her May 8 SNL hosting gig.

She won for being naughty on the subject of muffins, and he won – twice – for singing and dancing.
Betty White's Facebook-generated Saturday Night Live hosting gig and Neil Patrick Harris's turns as Tonys host and special guest star on Glee landed both veteran TV stars in the winners' circle at Saturday night's Creative Arts Emmy Awards in Los Angeles.
Though White, 88, was not at the Nokia Theater to collect her prize (her Snickers ad was also up for TV's highest honor), presenters John Lithgow and Clyde Phillips accepted on her behalf.

If you think this year has been epic for Golden Girl Betty White, just wait till 2011.
White – named an Outstanding Guest Actress in Comedy Emmy nominee Thursday for her historic recent stint as Saturday Night Live host – has created a 2011 calendar to benefit the Morris Animal Foundation, a wildlife charity, reports the BBC. Royalties from the $12.99 calendar, which arrives in stores in September, will be donated to the group.
Over the coming 12 months, the actress, 88, hams it up for the camera, posing with animals – and shirtless hunks.

Betty White's budding reputation as a cougar won't go away with this latest revelation.
Asked if she would have been ready if Sandra Bullock had kissed her instead of Scarlett Johansson at last week's MTV Movie Awards, White told PEOPLE: "No, no ... but if Ryan Reynolds had kissed me, I'd have been very ready."
Unfortunately – or perhaps luckily – Reynolds wasn't there. Johansson was filling in for her husband in presenting Bullock with MTV's Generation Award.

She's now the last living Golden Girl. For Betty White the loss of her costar Rue McClanahan struck hard.
"Rue was a close and dear friend. I treasure our relationship," White, 88, said in a statement. "It hurts more than I ever thought it would, if that's even possible."
McClanahan died early Thursday at age 76 after suffering a stroke, following the deaths of costars Bea Arthur last year at age 86 and Estelle Getty in 2008 at age 84 .
