She maybe be among TV's hottest and funniest actresses, but growing up in Barranquilla, Colombia, Vergara had very different ambitions, reported Us magazine.

"My father told me if I did anything artistic, I would look like a hooker. I told him, 'With these huge (assets) that I inherited from your mother, I already look like a hooker!'," the 40-year-old the voluptuous brunette, 40, joked during SAG awards at LA's Shrine Auditorium.

She walked the red carpet at the 19th annual SAG Awards clad in a white gold liquid lame gown by Donna Kara Atelier, with Neil Lane jewels and Charlotte Olympia shoes.

In addition to being nominated for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Comedy Series, the star helped propel the cast of the hit ABC sitcom to a win for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series.
