Sofía Vergara Shares Mammogram Selfie on Instagram

Just because she's a big star doesn't mean she gets to skip out on mammograms. Sofía Vergara got super real on Instagram, documenting this important annual doctor's visit and encouraging other women to take their health seriously.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and there's no better time to make an appointment for your yearly mammogram. The American Cancer Society recommends that women between 45 and 54 have mammograms once a year to screen for breast cancer, and some women may begin screening as early as 40.

Sofía Vergara, the 45-year-old Modern Family star, is diligent about getting checked for breast cancer, and she's not afraid to share it with her fans. Vergara posted a 'Gram of herself in a robe, posing in front of the mammography machine. It might not be the most enjoyable occasion, but she was in good spirits for the visit, writing, "You have to do it!!!" with several flexing emojis.

 

This actually wasn't the first time Vergara shared a mammogram selfie, either!

SHOW TRANSCRIPT

[MUSIC] This has been one of my favorite looks of the red carpet. It was last year at the Emmy's. I love white. White is one of my favorite colors I think that looks good on me. And we wanted to make it a little bit more exciting so we did like a red mouth. This is a look that is very special to me because it is a necklace that Lorraine Schwartz custom made for me. The dress was [UNKNOWN] and it was black, so Lorraine said I'm gonna go crazy and I'm gonna design this necklace that is gonna be amazing. I'm just gonna pop From that all-black outfit. This is not a red carpet look, but it was a lot of fun. It was a red Herve Leger dress that I wore for New Years Eve. I think red is always fantastic for New Years. I think you should always start the year with a bright color.
