Sofia Vergara says her most-noticed asset is also her most troublesome.

“My boobs are, like, huge,” Vergara says in the May issue of Vanity Fair. "My whole life, buying a bra was a nightmare. What I used to do when I moved to L.A., I found places like Frederick’s of Hollywood that make bras for [strippers].” 

“Believe me, I wish I had fake boobs," she adds. "I lay down and they completely go down like all the way, like here.” 

That didn't stop Vergara for leaving her shirt behind for the magazine's photo shoot with legendary photographer Annie Leibowitz

“It’s amazing when you work with somebody that you trust so much," Vergara said. "She told me things that maybe with other photographers I would have felt like, what? No bra?! Like what? With that dog on top of me?!"

And while Vergara, 42, has become famous for her role as Gloria on "Modern Family," its her management company LatinWE that has made her rich.

"What [Charlie] Chaplin and [Douglas] Fairbanks did for the general talent in the 20s or whenever, we did for the Spanish-speaking talent in the 90s," her partner Luis Balaguer said. "We were pioneers.”

Vanity Fair's May issue is on sale in New York and Los Angeles on Thursday, April 9, and on the iPhone, Kindle, and other devices on April 8. The magazine will be on national newsstands on April 14.
