Sofia Vergara: I look like a transsexual
A lot of us out in TV watching land have a huge crush on "Modern Family's" Sofia Vergara, but when it comes to who the actress herself has a jones for it's none other than Ms. Berry.
"I have many [girl crushes], but I love Halle Berry," Vergara tells the Advocate. "She's perfection. Every time I see her, I want to give her a standing ovation because she's so flawless."
And while we don't doubt there are those who'd say the same about her, the actress says her physique actually helped her tackle a role as a transsexual for a film.
"I did a movie called 'Grilled' with Ray Romano and Kevin James that went straight to video. I played a transsexual, a guy who had gone all the way with the operation to become a woman. I had a great time playing that character," Vergara recalls.
She adds that it wasn't even a challenge, saying, "I look like a transsexual, anyway."
"I'm a woman, but I'm super-exaggerated with my boobs, my ass, my make-up and my accent. When I get ready for an event, I always look at myself in the mirror and say, 'I look like a transvestite!' I love it."
The other thing she loves is how her Emmy winning comedy "Modern Family" is helping to change perceptions, all while making people laugh.
"Many gay friends have told me how hard it was for them to be open in the Latin community. Nothing's going to change from one day to the other, so it's a matter of doing things little by little," Vergara says. "That's why I love the gay couple [played by Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Eric Stonestreet] in 'Modern Family.' People always tell me, 'We've never seen a normal, loving gay couple before!' They think gay people are just running around naked, partying in nightclubs. So it's good...especially for those who aren't exposed to a lot of gays like we are in the big cities, to see gay people portrayed in a beautiful way."
As for her own fan club, Vergara says she's "always had plenty of gay fans, even back in Colombia, probably because I'm voluptuous and a little over-the-top. Gay men always tell me how fabulous I am. I think they want to be [my 'Modern Family' character] Gloria."

Nice post thanks for sharing Legitnobs
I cant belive it https://freegbedu.ng/
With all the Plastic Surgery https://freegbedu.ng/
great Body, If Its Real, But She Totally Looks Like A Man In The Face. Give Me Selma Hayek Any Day Over Her.
I'm no longer positive where you're getting your information, but good topic. I needs to spend a while finding out much more or working out more. Thank you for fantastic information I was in search of this info for my mission.
Thats a view of beauty and feminine perfection. I would love her however she dressed. That's Latin Viagra baby! Aye Mommita te ve buena!
Got that right...
This woman is absolutely beautiful.
SHE EARN ENJOY THE AMERICAN DREAM MY TOO
ELLA SE GANO EL SUENO AMERICANO Y TU QUE.
She's hot, and funny, and doesn't seem at all stuck up. Can I get your number honey?
hey,, no way.. Is she a tranny?
Is she really one of "them"?
I can hear her singing, "...if I only had a brain..."
She is hot.
You are sooo hott......even if you have a package!
Moral relativism. Being gay is a wrong choice. It is a sin and can be portrayed in no other way.
Screen test, drop it.
It's so amusing to hear so many still talking about man/woman as if they are different species!
Sophia Vegara is the best looking and finest thing on TV right now!!! Simply Stunning!!!!!!!
I'd wear her out right here right now! Shoot, I'd call my wife and tell her to watch the vid on YouTube! Sofia! Homina-homina-homina
I think it's her pen-is that gives that impression...
She's surprisingly self-aware; I'm glad she's not stuck on herself. (Like the overinflated Kardashians or Hilton sisters.) She's quite pretty to me, actually.
boy, I'd convert if she's a trainy- give her a new facial in a heart beat!
Halle Berry is NOT "perfection". She's not even hot. She just barely at the "pretty" level, in my opinion. I'm so tired of people ranting and raving about how awesome looking she is. That stupid freakin' boy's haircut is gross. Anyway, Sofia Vergara is hot, but probably wears a bit too much makeup. Regardless, she blows Halle Berry away.
Meh.. she never did for me even back in the 90's during her "modeling prime". Personally, I liked that group of Paisas that came out after sofia and Natalia Paris.... Like Ana Sofia Henao and Catalina Maya... Hotness!... I can still remember those pics of Cata in the school girl uniform.
I'll shake that doctors hand after I smack that ass.
Not sure why someone would be proud of looking like a disturbed person (someone who has problems accepting their born gender) except that in their desperation to "break into" a difficult industry, they are willing to cater to any audience they can get.
God, she makes me so freakin' hard.
She right, but I'd still bang him...
OK. for anyone who thinks Sofia Vergara is not one of the most gorgeous, sensuous women ever to grace contemporary screens and magazines – I would first suggest you look at her early modeling years. If that does not convince you – there is little hope for your dead sense of taste....
She kids around, but she is one of the top beauties in the world then and today. Muy caliente – in any language
Does he/she stand up to P??????????????????
Right now I'm picturing Sofia and Halle in the all-together ... in each other's arms ... etc ... wo .... WO ...
She said, "boobs". heh heh ... heh heh .... heh ....
Ha frickin ha!
She is pretty but sorry, she is not Caucasian same with Halle Berry. To be beautiful you must be white.
At least you don't look like that thing that is going to be on Dancing With the Stars. Ok, Chaz Bono, in order to look somewhat more masculine, maybe have that lesbian arm tatoo removed, ya think?
Sorry, I won't be watching the DWTS: Freakshow Edition.
Sofia Vergara is *all* woman. Absolutely gorgeuous! I love her *curves* !!!
I'd sooooo love to give Halle Berry a standing O too!!
AND THEY SAY MEN ARE JACKING OFF FOR CELEBS. IT'S THE WOMEN WHO ARE PERV ABOUT CELEBS NOWADAYS!!
Fact#3 This article is about Sofia Vergara NOT Michelle Bachmann.
Fact#4 Nobody cares what you think about Bachmann
Fact #5 Anytime I hear her name I think she should pick a running mate named Turner so she could use "Michelle Bachmann Turner Overdrive" as a campaign slogan.
Rachel,that was Sofias'opion on Halle obviously not yours.maybe not flawless but definitely s*xy as h#ll.
Spoken out loud in the voice of Sylvester the cat (of Bugs Bunny fame):
"Shufferin' shuccotash! She duzh, she DUZH look like a transhexshual!"
I'd still tap that.
She looks like my ex-wife but without the beard.
Yeah im pretty sure she is a lesbean all right. Looks like one to me. Bet shes got tattoos too.
speaking of girl crushes (hot!), that is one hot colombian tranny... yum, yum. she is hilarious, and gorgeous and sounds like she has a good head on her broad masculine shoulders. 😉
I just saw Modern Family for the first time last night. Considering what I saw and what I just read, I love this woman she is freaking highlarious
Halle Berry flawless?? LOL! I can name several flaws of that chick. For starters, her legs look like she has bee riding a horse just a bit too many years. And secondly, she goes thru men like I've never seen.
@ Sencho- No hard feelings eh...you won my game, but I made fun of you above. Thanks for playing...
All I know is that she makes me laugh. Delightful actress.
NEVER HEARD OF DA SHOW...WHATS THAT MAKE ME..INTELLIGENT?
Top five answers are on the board...What hints in BBK's post answer his question regarding his/her intelligence?
Types in all caps.
Communicates in faux ebonics.
Felt it necessary to post on a topic about which he admits having no knowledge.
Taking the time to post a negative comment about a show you've never even seen? Makes you anything but intelligent. (Note: have someone explain my comment to you)
Colombian women definitely over do it when it comes to plastic surgery and many tourists go to Colombia for surgery..... but hate to break it to some of you Sofia Vergara is all natural.....she has not had any surgery. Also she exaggerates her accent on the show, it is not that harsh or extreme when in person. People hate others based on looks and cannot accept others' success. She is actually very smart and apparently a great mother to her 18 (?) year old son.
Colombian women over do it with plastic surgery? I think you have them confused with California women!
@ Captain J- I think you missed the twist. Californian women used to be Columbian women who had plastic surgery to look more Oregonian.
Lets all just celebrate her as the comedic genius she is and not make everything into an "issue"'. Sofia Vergara is the new Lucille Ball. A breath of fresh air in a very nasty negative world.
Let’s talk about Shakira, in Colombia it was known that she had one rib removed to make her waist smaller, she also had many other things fixed. About Colombia women, I agree with Timothy, you marry one Colombian woman and you will see how unfaithful and dishonest they are, also they will take you to the cleaners in a heart beat.
she's a TILF
He does look like a trannie but who cares? The show is funny and it's not a unreality show.
PortalPotty has been 'busy at work'?
Who would hire a looser that has being 'firsty' as a life-goal?
You could hire him if you needed someone to be first at everything.
I love her sense of humor- she's way too beautiful to look like a guy! Can't wait for her affordable line of fashion to come out.
I'd do her even if she had a wang dangle.
i'm glad she said it not me...
She's terrific – especially since she can laugh at herself! Alot of beautiful women are very insecure and have no sense of humor. And I love her accent. Her english is fine – people used to say Marlon Brando mumbled. He never did, he just spoke in a normal voice instead of projecting and felt the audio techs needed to pick it up. So she has an accent, most people speaking a foreign language do. Love the ad where she tears the jacket off the guy and bends over backward to retrieve the smartphone. She makes the whole thing fun and it sells. Good for her.
I love that about her
I looked at some of her pics and she very well may be a tranny. No waist, manhands....hmmm...
I don't think Sophia looks like a trannie. I've seen some in Brasil that you'd swear were women.
I like her... she is fun.
"Gay men always tell me how fabulous I am. I think they want to be [my 'Modern Family' character] Gloria."
I mean, for some, yes... they would probably love to be Gloria. But, no... the vast majority of gay men do NOT want to be your character on "Modern Family".
It might be time for me to stop listening to what this woman says outside of the show. She's starting to get on my nerves, and this stupid generalization about gay men isn't earning her any extra credit with this gay guy. I frakking HATE when F-hags start overstepping their bounds.
They also say the gay is very emotional...how does that shoe fit ya?
Ron... that comment made my day better. Nothing like a good laugh.
sencho you are a piece of work I think you are a drag queen and should deal with it and move on....
I'm just gonna venture out on a limb and assume that she's talking about the gay men who tell her they love her character...not all gay men. Please, don't make this about you.
One of the most gorgeous hottest women on the planet.
If you stand next to Lady Gaga, you'd be twins!
Absolutely not! Lady Gaga, IMHO is not that hot. (Why the long face?) This Vergara woman is smokin however. She may think she looks like a tranny (don't trannie's try to look like women?) .. but I think she's all woman.
I heard she is a gay lesbean.
As opposed to a straight lesbian...
I like more means
So she is a lesbian that likes men?
You know who DOES look like a tranny? Paz de la Huerta.
And the award for the dumbest story of 2011 goes to...
She is smokin HOT. When I hear her voice on tV, I stop what I am doing to pay attention. Great actress. Love Modern Family.
I'd do her even if she were a tranny.. and im serious. Love Colombian women.
Agreed...that is one hot dude!
Yeah she has serious manface. If it weren't for her rack then I doubt most men would give her much attention.
she has a face? Wait a minute, let me look, oh yeah, your'e right, she does have a face
J0nx, i would bet a large sum of money that you have never been with a woman anywhere close to as pretty as her, and this is why you feel the need to show your resentment towards females in general, by calling a woman whom you've never met, and who is undisputably hot, ugly. you, sir, are a bitter, jealous man. what do you accomplish by calling a woman ugly on a message board, besides making yourself look like a virgin in denial?
She is hilarious and beautiful and talented.
at least she know she isn't the hottest mom on that show...the blonde is by far!
The one that weighs 38 lbs? From Happy Gilmore..that one????
The blondie is pretty, but someone please give her a sandwich, she needs to gain a few pounds. Sofia Vergara is sooo hot.
He's more of a strawberry blonde, and technically he's a dad.
YOU ARE INSANE!!!
To both you women who think the blonde needs to gain weight: she's fine, but something tells me both of you are considerably overweight, but think you're average sized. Denial. Sadly amusing.
...or lydia has body dysmorphia.
You aren't supposed to see ribs when you look in the mirror.
You look amazingly beautiful and feminine.
Thanks, I think.
palstic surgery- It's offensive that she has an accent? What is wrong with your tiny brain? I don't care if her face and boobs were grown in a lab and spliced onto her by Dr.Frankenstein, she's gorgeous and funny. I've been a fan since Knights Of Prosperity was on TV. If that's what a post op tranny looks like, I guess I like post-op trannies.
Timothy, you're nothing more than an ignorant racist! Did a Colombiana reject you? Is that why you're so bitter and sound like such a miserable, bigoted loser?
Um yeah, I'm sure she could have gotten to the US on her own. Besides, I doubt she was living in poverty with talent and looks like that.
Tiff's just jealous because she couldn't piggyback her way into Hollywood. Who cares how she got there' her sucess is hers alone.
Hahaha sanChaz hilarious name man, well done.
If she's a tranny I'd give her an old fashioned
with all the plastic surgery she had back home in Colombia and she still looks like a man in dress. May be she should have an Enghish teacher to work on her heavy accent.
