    “Modern Family” bombshell Sofia Vergara offers up her favorite ways to put a little va into your voom in the March issue of Shape magazine.

    Vergara, 39, talks about how she hates working out, how men can turn into “little babies” when they get hurt, and why chocolate-covered strawberries are health food.

    Check out FOX411’s advance quotes from the interview, plus both sexy covers.

    Trade sit-ups for salsa…

    Want to see Sofia make the “ugh” face? Ask her what she does to work out.

    “Oh, I hate it!” she says. “But I also know that at my age—I’m almost 40!—I have to do it to maintain my figure. When I can, I try to do Latin dancing for exercise because it’s so much fun and I just love the music.”

    The hard part for her is actually getting to the gym. “Two hours before I go, I’m already wishing it was over,” she admits.

    Her motivational trick? “I psychologically fool myself into believing it’s part of my job. And then, of course, once I’m done, I’m really glad I did it because I feel so good.”

    Laugh away stress…

    About a year ago, Sofia started dating Florida politician, Nick Loeb, and six months later, they had their first big test as a couple. Nick was in a terrible car accident that left him temporarily unable to walk.

    “It was hard for us because it happened in the middle of the most fun, sexy time,” says Sofia. “And then he was in the hospital, and you know men, they become such little babies!”

    But throughout the whole ordeal, Nick never once got depressed, in fact, quite the opposite. “He kept his sense of humor despite the situation,” says Sofia. “I don’t know if I could have stuck it out with him if he hadn’t been able to laugh at himself and be happy even under the worst conditions. When you see people in difficult times, that’s when their true nature comes out.”

    Eat what you crave…

    Because Sofia considers food one of life’s greatest pleasures, she finds a way to indulge every day.

    “If I could, I would have foie gras and éclairs for breakfast, lunch, and dinner!” she says laughing. But her splurge—and honestly, she can’t call it that because she eats it almost every day—is cake.

    “I love it,” she says. “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.” Chocolate-covered strawberries are another favorite.

    “I insist to all of my friends that they’re healthy,” she says. “What? It’s fruit with a little chocolate. It’s hardly anything. The problem is when I eat half a dozen!”
