Sofia Vergara has gone blonde! The fiery Colombian who plays Gloria on ABC’s ‘Modern Family,’ is actually a natural blonde, believe it or not. The 40-year-old showed off her lighter locks on Instagram.
“Blond ambitions!! Gracias to the amazing Kelly [Kline],” she captioned the sultry selfie, giving a shoutout to her colorist. “I’m ready for summer!”
Vergara has said in the past that she decided to go brunette when she broke into showbiz. Prior to the dye job, casting directors couldn’t reconcile her looks with her personality and Colombian accent.
“I’m a natural blonde, but when I started acting, I would go to auditions, and they didn’t know where to put me because I was voluptuous and had the accent — but I had blonde hair,” she explained in a 2010 interview with Self magazine. “The moment I dyed my hair dark, it was, ‘Oh, she’s the hot Latin girl.'”
“I loved it,” she said of the change. “Being brunette toned me down a bit.”
