While it is a cliche to say age is just a number it is also a hackneyed topic, this marveling of actresses and other celebrities who are over age 40 and who are stunning and gorgeous. And so we revisit the topic and this time the subject is the 42-year-old Sofia Vergara. The Colombian actress has long been a sex symbol and from the likes of the cover photo of Shape magazine’s November issue, it’s clear she’s not giving up the reign.

So what are the secrets, as such? Sofia Vergara tells Shape magazine how she feels about workout out, and is refreshingly candid, saying, ““Everyone knows that I’ve never been into working out. I was always very happy with what I have. Then I hit 40 and I started seeing a softness everywhere on my body… I knew it was time to do something, so I did.”

As the magazine notes the “something” that she did is the Lagree Fitness Method workout along with some Pilates as well as workouts with the Megaformer machine. She also does the popular Strengthen Lengthen and Tone (STL) classes. All in all, it’s clearly working.

As for how she feels about her results, Sofia Vergara says, “My body is looking better than it used to, but I wish I had worked out more when I was younger and taken it as seriously as I do now.” She goes on to speak of a 21-year-old niece who “loves exercising” and that she tells her, “‘Keep doing it so you don’t have to go crazy with it when you’re my age!”

She also opens up about the other prong of the battle, that being diet. Noting her preference to avoid process foods and to consume vegetable drinks that Dr. Oz is a proponent of, she confesses, “I heard about someone in L.A. who got hypnotized so they wouldn’t eat candy. I’m seriously looking into that because I’m obsessed. When I do indulge, I exercise a bit harder the next day. My workout motto is really simple: No pain, no cake!”
