Actress Sofia Vergara's nude Women's Health cover is beyond hot, but some aren't completely sold it's truly naked and void of retouching.


The 45-year-old Modern Family star bares it all (well, almost) on the magazine's first-ever naked issue, proudly standing in nothing but her self-confidence.

"Here's a woman, 45, being able to show her body," Vergara declares to Women's Health. "It's not like before, when it was just young girls."

Though she admits she doesn't look like she did in her twenties, this Colombian mogul (Vergara founded Latin World Entertainment, a multi-service and multi-million dollar talent management company) isn't stressing out about having the perfect body or "cut abs."

Others feel Sofia's presence on a magazine cover that focuses on "body confidence" and sexiness sends the wrong message -- one that can make people question their own self-worth.

"Here's another beautiful, well-kept, wealthy celebrity posing in the buff," writes another. "But this does not represent most 45+ women and sets a precedent for body-shaming. Throughout the age groups. I think she looks perfect photoshopped or not. But she is unique."

The growing outcry of Sofia's Women's Health cover begs the question of whether or not we need to celebrate actresses in this way or if publications should start leaning toward more everyday individuals -- especially when it comes to honoring the female form and body confidence.
