Big wedding for Sofia Vergara? Not after her big proposal

Sofia Vergara doesn't seem to want another big wedding when she and fiance Nick Loeb tie the knot.

"He was already married with a big wedding and I was already married with a big wedding, so we're going to do something but not right now," the "Modern Family" star told Cosmopolitan, which she covers for the June 2013 issue.

"When he proposed, it was my birthday, and I'd flown more than 100 family and friends to Mexico for six days of partying. It took me forever to arrange the logistics! If I had known I was going to get engaged, I don't do this stupid birthday," she added.

They were all ringing in her 40th birthday last summer and Loeb's surprise proposal had them inadvertently bypassing a checkpoint at the Mayan ruins of Chichen Itza, which nearly got the actress and businessman arrested.

Vergara, 40, has risen to sex symbol status with her role as step-matriarch Gloria Delgado-Pritchett and the many, many deals she's cut since appearing on the ABC comedy. Though she was well-known in the Latino community, she said that her oozing sex appeal didn't really have a place in her home life.

"No one can be a sex kitten every day, and anyone who tells you that is lying. But I do wear negligees and Japanese silk robes," she said. "For a long time, I lived alone with my son and only saw my boyfriends in a hotel. So at home, I slept in old T-shirts. I realized when I moved in with Nick that I couldn't do that. Now, I only keep nice pajamas around, because whatever is there, I'm going to wear."

The Colombian-born actress has also become a style icon because of the way she dresses her signature curvy figure.

"I have learned that not everything looks good on me because of my boobs," she added. "Magazines will say, 'She is wearing the same shape again.' I'm like, yes! So what? My boobs are real. They're a 32F. I can't wear something backless, because what holds them up?"

That could explain the launch of her shapewear line for Kmart, which she hopes to focus on in her five-year plan if "Modern Family" is no longer in the cards. She says she might do movies, "maybe have a kid. But I am going to be working my whole life. I love making money. I really love it!"

Vergara, who is mother to Manolo Gonzalez from a previous marriage, has previously announced that she froze her eggs in case they decided to have kids. But rumors have been swirling that she's likely to use a surrogate in order to do so.

"Well, because I froze my eggs. I had to go to my doctor's office a hundred million times to do injections. The [rumor] probably came from that. My doctor had told me, 'We have a small window.' I said, 'That's so rude!' I already have a kid, so I never thought I would need to do that. But I will have to use a surrogate, because I had thyroid cancer and lots of radiation. I don't want to wait forever, but not yet, because I'm working like an animal."

The magazine's June issue hits newsstands May 7.
