'Modern Family' Star Admits her 'Giant' Advantage That Led Her Rise to Fame: 'Absurd to Deny'

Sofia Vergara, the star from "Modern Family," attributes her "giant boobs" for kickstarting her fame. She made this candid revelation in an interview with El País, a Spanish newspaper.

Vergara openly acknowledges the role her body played in her early success. "It would be absurd to deny it," she admits. Her physique was her "passport to the world" when she began modeling at 20.

Now 51, she credits hard work and personality for her lasting success. She's not just about looks. Vergara emphasizes her readiness to take risks and outwork anyone. "There are women who are prettier, younger... but I'm still around," she asserts.

Her approach to fame is pragmatic. "It's just entertainment," she remarks, unfazed by potential criticism.

Post-"Modern Family," Vergara's career evolved. She stars in Netflix's "Griselda," playing a Colombian drug lord. The role resonates deeply with her, touching on personal history and her Colombian heritage.

Vergara's transformation over the years is evident. She's not just the exaggerated character from "Modern Family" anymore. She's proving her versatility and depth as an actress.

Sofia Vergara, known for her distinct accent, admits it narrows her acting roles. She discussed this with The Los Angeles Times, focusing on her role in Netflix's "Griselda." The series tells the tale of Griselda Blanco, a notorious Colombian drug lord.

Vergara humorously critiques her own accent, suggesting it limits her opportunities. "There's not much that I can play with this stupid accent," she says, half-joking.

Her roles are confined, she feels. "I can’t play a scientist or be in ‘Schindler’s List,'" she remarks. Despite these limitations, she continues to find characters that resonate with her unique persona.
