Sofia Vergara doesn't do subtle.

The 39-year-old Colombian beauty played a transsexual in the 2006 direct-to-video movie Grilled, and according to the actress, it wasn't much of a stretch.

"I look like a transsexual anyway. I'm a woman, but I'm super-exaggerated with my boobs, my ass, my makeup and my accent," Vergara tells The Advocate. "When I get ready for an event, I always look at myself in the mirror and say, 'I look like a transvestite!' I love it."

The Modern Family star adds that she's "always had plenty of gay fans," mostly because she's "voluptuous and a little over the top."

"Gay men always tell me how fabulous I am. I think they want to be Gloria," Vergara says of her beloved TV character. "All my fans must be very respectful, because I've never had a guy or a girl come up and grab my ass."

Vergara also admits to having a bit of a girl crush herself. "I have many, but I love Halle Berry. She's perfection. Every time I see her, I want to give her a standing ovation because she's so flawless."
