I feel naked without makeup: Sofia Vergara

Los Angeles: Actress Sofia Vergara says she cannot step out of the house before doing up her face as she feels "naked" without make-up.

The `Modern Family` star is known for her curvaceous figure but it is her face that she is more worried about, reported Us magazine.

"If I walk outside without lipstick, I feel naked," said the 38-year-old actress.

Ask her which is her favourite body part and Vergara says, "I like my eyes. They have a natural cat`s-eye shape, so I try to play that up."

The `New Year`s Eve` actress is just as diligent when it comes to maintaining her famous hourglass shape.

Of her frequent workout sessions with trainer Gunnar Peterson, she says, "Oh, I hate it! But I also know that at my age - I`m almost 40! - I have to do it to maintain my figure. When I can, I try to do Latin dancing for exercise because it`s so much fun and I just love the music."

And while the 5-foot-7 star says she gets meals from a diet delivery service when she`s looking to drop a few extra pounds, she`s certainly not looking to get super skinny.

"I think when women reach a certain age, they look better with a little fat in their face. I`m lucky I`m Latin because people expect me to be a bit more plump," she said.
