38-year-old Sofia Vergara is amazing. A veritable mega star across South America and especially her native Columbia, she has found recognition elsewhere for her role in the very funny Fox Television show Modern Family, where she plays a really hot mum.

American Esquire once did a shoot where they riffed nicely on this idea with a series of photographs that placed her in some traditional motherly poses in the kitchen, but with the added the spin of placing her in revealing clothing, perhaps to illustrate her attractiveness. Smart move.

Baking power: Sofia Vergara mixes the dough with no trousers on

The Columbian countess (she’s not one, but it rhymed, yeah) told Armerican Esquire that at one point she considered breast reduction, but her mother warned her not to with the encouraging words, "God is going to punish you if you cut them."

In fact she’s not really into plastic surgery at all, which is good, because she’s great looking. "L. A. is crazy. The women all look the same now. That thing with the cheeks. Like Madonna. Who do they think they're fooling? It doesn't make them look young. You end up looking like a freak."
