Sofia Vergara Goes Back to Her Roots

By  March 27, 2013

Looks like Sofia Vergara said bye-bye to her brunette tresses and opted for a much lighter hue.

The CoverGirl shared her new look via Twitter on Tuesday, noting her blonde ambition, but the truth is she’s a natural blonde! According to Latina, Vergara was already a star in her native Columbia but had difficulty finding English-speaking roles because of her accent and contrasting hair color.

“I’m a natural blonde. But when I started acting, I would go to audition and they didn’t know where to put me because I was voluptuous and had the accent – but I had blonde hair,” she explained to Self back in 2010. “The moment I dyed my hair dark, it was, ‘Oh, she’s the hot Latin girl.’”

We have to say that we love the shade switch and hope she keeps it around for a while, maybe to give her character on Modern Family, Gloria, a new look. After all, blondes do have more fun!
