Washington: Colombian actress Sofia Vergara has opened up on how she keeps herself in shape, and why chocolate-covered strawberries are health food.
Vergara, 38, said in the March issue of Shape magazine that she hates to work out, but forces herself to go through with it to keep her figure.
“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,” the actress said.
“When I can, I try to do Latin dancing for exercise because it’s so much fun and I just love the music,” she said.
Vergara considers food as one of life’s greatest pleasures, and finds a way to indulge every day.
“If I could, I would have foie gras and eclairs for breakfast, lunch, and dinner!” she said.
But her two favourites are cake and chocolate-covered strawberries.
“I love it. Vanilla cake, angel food cake, chocolate cake. For me and my son, buying cake at the grocery store is like buying milk. We always have it in the house,” she said.
About chocolate-covered strawberries, she says: “I insist to all of my friends that they’re healthy.
“What? It’s fruit with a little chocolate. It’s hardly anything. The problem is when I eat half a dozen!” she added.
