Sofia Vergara has denied rumours that advertising bosses had used digital technology to make her look thinner in a new advertising campaign for Pepsi.
She said that she looked slimmer in the photos because of a wardrobe choice.
The 'Modern Family' star is seen wearing a large blue hat and a revealing halter-neck top in the pictures to promote the drinks brand's new Diet Pepsi Skinny Can.
The commercial, however, received criticism from critics and campaigners, who alleged computer wizardry was used to minimise Vergara's curves, with a representative for The National Eating Disorders Association calling the advert 'thoughtless and irresponsible'.
Vergara has now cleared the controversy, insisting the pictures have not been altered in any way.
"That is not true at all. I saw the pictures, and now with technology, they're looking at it on the screen right after they take them. It was just a different way of dressing me," the Daily Express quoted her, as telling the Boston Herald.
