Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past few years, chances are, you know exactly who Sofia Vergara is. First of all, she’s skyrocketed to superstardom ever since snagging the role of Gloria Delgado-Pritchett on hit series Modern Family. Everyone has their favorites, but Vergara’s consistent awards show recognition proves that Gloria’s over the top personality has won fans’ hearts around the world. It also doesn’t hurt that she’s absolutely drop dead gorgeous, and in a world of pin thin Hollywood blondes, the curvy Latina stands out from the crowd – in a good way.
The cherry on top of the cake? She’s recently engaged to Hollywood hunk Joe Manganiello, or as you may know him, Big Dick Richie from the Magic Mike franchise. The couple receives an insane amount of paparazzi attention anytime they go anywhere, and it’s simple – it’s because they just look so, so good on camera. How could you not want to snag a shot?
With her charming accent, larger than life personality, and unapologetic glamour (she’s rarely seen without her make-up on and her hair done up), it’s no surprise that Sofia Vergara has made it to the A-List. She’s curvy, she’s funny, and she’s charming – what more could you want in a starlet?
However, while most people know a few things about her, there are some lesser known facts you may not be familiar with when it comes to this Colombian cutie. Here are 10 things you may not have known about Sofia Vergara.
10 She was a telenovela star
For American audiences, Vergara got her big break when she scored the role of Gloria Delgado-Pritchett on Modern Family. And, let’s be honest – that’s the role that won her international fame as a sexy actress with some serious comedic chops. However, she was a household name in Mexico far before her Modern Family days as a cast member of the Mexican telenovela Acapulco, Cuerpo y Alma, all the way back in 1995. That’s right – even though she may seem to have risen in Hollywood fairly recently, she’s been in the industry for over two decades. We all love Gloria, but honestly, we’re kind of curious about Irasema, the character she played on the telenovela.
9 She was first married at 18
8 She attended a private bilingual school
7 She studied pre-dentistry for three years
6 She’s a natural blonde
5 She’s a fan of Scarface
4 She’s a thyroid cancer survivor
3 She watched Ed O’Neill growing up
2 She was discovered on a Colombian beach at 17
1 She doesn’t eat red meat
While most people know a fair bit about Sofia Vergara’s life, thanks to the constant interviews that accompany fame, they may not know much about her parents. Back in Colombia, when Vergara was growing up, her father was a cattle farmer. So, it might seem strange that Vergara doesn’t eat red meat. However, it’s not because of a fondness for our bovine friends that she passes up steak. It’s simply because, according to Vergara, the meat in America tastes strange in comparison to Colombian meat. Considering she was likely raised on farm fresh red meat, it’s no wonder that the supermarket fare doesn’t seem quite so tasty in comparison.
