The Colombian bombshell was inspired to create her first fragrance by Elizabeth Taylor.

Sofia Vergara wishes she had hit the gym and used more sunblock when she was younger.

Now married to movie hunk Joe Manganiello, the Colombian actress spends a lot of time working out, but she admits it's tough for her to stay in shape because her body wasn't put through its paces at the gym when she was in her 20s.

"I wish I would have worked out earlier," she tells InStyle magazine. "Now, it's hard for me because I don't have that built in my system. It's not part of my life."

She would also like to go back in time and tell her younger self to take better care of her skin while sunbathing: "I also wish I had used more sunblock. In the '90s, in Miami, we were in the sun all day long!"

In the candid InStyle interview, the Modern Family star also talks about her new fragrance, Tempting, and reveals she was inspired to create her own scent by the late Elizabeth Taylor.

"I do remember being very excited when I was given White Diamonds by Elizabeth Taylor when I was 15," she recalls with a chuckle. "It was by a movie star, and I thought it was so luxurious. And from then on, I said I would make my own fragrance one day!"

The actress goes on to reveal she loves the smells of the kitchen when food is being prepared and cooked, but hates the nasty niff of one very unwelcome visitor to her home: "I live in a house up the hill in Beverly Hills, and we have a lot of skunks," she explains. "For some reason, even when they're on the patio, you can smell it inside the bedroom, and that smell lasts for a long time. I hate that!"
