To call Sofia Vergara successful is an understatement. Seriously, looking at her long list of accomplishments makes you wish there were a word bigger than that to describe her.

Think about it: At a time when it is considered a huge win if a television series lasts for three or four seasons, Sofia is heading into her 10th season playing Gloria on the top-rated sitcom Modern Family. Not only that, she’s regularly listed as one of TV’s highest-paid women. Oh, and Sofia isn’t just killing it in the entertainment industry. She’s a partner in two tech companies: a subscription, size-inclusive underwear business called EBY; and Raze, a Latin American digital media and social platform. The 46-year-old has also turned herself into a bit of a beauty mogul, with four popular fragrances and a great gig as a brand ambassador for Head & Shoulders under her belt.

Somehow, with all this going on, Sofia has also managed to take care of her personal life. She’s been married to fellow actor Joe Manganiello, 41, for nearly three years, and they both radiate happiness together. Follow her on Instagram and it’s clear that she has a close bond with her 27-year-old son, Manolo.

So what’s the secret to all her success? We asked that exact question when we sat down with her after her Health cover shoot in Los Angeles.

I don’t sit crying about something—a job I don’t get or a deal that doesn’t go through,” says the actress, lounging on a couch and wearing a blue-and- white-striped off-the-shoulder dress and some serious wedges. “Like, That’s it, move on, try to find something else… Because if you don’t, you lose time crying about it. So let’s not lose time!

It makes sense. By keeping her eye on the prize and not dwelling, Sofia has managed to craft a career that has longevity and to nurture other life interests (like her beauty obsession and family!). Here, Sofia shares more life lessons, plus reveals her top skin-care tips and the secret to her steamy marriage.

As Modern Family heads into its 10th season, what’s different about playing Gloria now?
Well, of course it gets easier and easier, because you kind of become that person. Like, I already know how she’s gonna react to things. But it’s always fun. You know how you hear that some actors get bored of playing a character for so long? To me, it’s super exciting. There is never a dull moment on set.

Who’s your best pal behind the scenes?
Ed [O’Neill, who plays Gloria’s husband, Jay], because I’m in every scene with him—we’ve created this great bond in the past nine years. We know each other and we don’t annoy each other—we haven’t had one single problem in nine years, I think! We talk about my kid and his kids—he has even younger kids than I do, which I think is super funny. But also Ed is an old-timer, and he has these fascinating stories about Hollywood. It’s a lot of fun to hear him talk.

Is there anything you have taken from Gloria?
Well, I think that she has taken more from me—from my life, from my family, and the way that I live my life. But of course, she’s a lot better than me in how intense she is with her family, and how completely dedicated she is in making the family work. She’s a character—she’s fake, so she’s better!

ARIEL Winter relied on her Modern Family to embrace her curves.
When I was 11 years old and started the show I was completely flat,” Winter, 18, told Amazon’s Style Code Live.
I always wanted to have boobs, to have a butt and curves, and it seemed like I would never get them … and then overnight I turned 12 years old and it was like everything was different and I had the boobs I wanted.
Unfortunately, she got more than she asked for, eventually going on to get a breast reduction and flaunting the results all over social media.
But they kept getting bigger and bigger and my body kept changing,” she added.
I started to go online and post pictures of myself and go to events and stuff, I would get so much hate for it — I would get called fat and be told I looked trashy because of what I was wearing, but it was really hard to dress for my age and my body.

Thankfully, Winter had fellow buxom co-star Sofía Vergara to help her adjust to the changes.
I did start working with her when I was 11, so I had my whole body evolution, it sounds weird, in front of her and she watched me grow up,” Winter said.
I think she really noticed I would need a little help and inspiration. She was always there for me, she was always great giving me tips and advice of how to appreciate my body. I always watched her appreciate how she looked.
Aside from her on-screen aunt, Winter’s older sister, who went on to become her legal guardian, was an important influence on her body image.
My sister was the greatest one,” Winter said.
She was always that type of person who is super confident. She loves herself regardless if she’s in her pyjamas at the grocery store or going to a big event and looks amazing.
