Sofia Vergara doesn't look like this anymore

Sofia Vergara, from what we've seen, has a blast as a brunette.

But now that she's back to blond, here's hoping she's in for even more fun.

As the 40-year-old actress revealed on Instagram Tuesday, she's lightened up her hair color quite a bit from her usual deep shade, going particularly blond toward the ends.

Blond ambitions!! Gracias to the amazing Kelly Klain Im ready for summer!☀

"Blond ambitions!!" the "Modern Family" actress posted. "Gracias to the amazing Kelly Klain ... Im ready for summer!"

For Vergara, though, the new hair color is also a return to her natural state. She told Self magazine in 2010 that she's a natural blonde who went darker in hopes it would help her land more acting jobs.

"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 blond hair," Vergara said. "It was ignorance: They thought every Latin person looks like Salma Hayek. The moment I dyed my hair dark, it was, 'Oh, she's the hot Latin girl.' I loved it. I'd always felt a little 'too much' as a blonde, like a big-mouth version of Pamela Anderson. Being brunette toned me down a bit."

Sounds like someone's ready to live (even more) out loud.

    Even movie sets have started banning breast implants like Sofia's – they are gross and ruining how women feel about their bodies. She's a beautiful woman, but she is fake. The lips are looking jokeresque - botox.

    You can tell her breasts are fake by the tops there and no men do not all like the fun bags filled with silicone or saline. Sadly the way natural breasts are considered "Saggy" by today's standards. I'd rather have them real than all tight and baseball under the skin round. If the woman is skinny – they look like skeletor t((ts! Gross!

    I think she is hideous and harsh looking with so much makeup. Latina women need to stop trying to look white. Not fooling anyone but themselves. Black women are finally starting to embrace their unique beauty, and now we have another race of women who want to look like plain, pasty, ugly white women.

      Problem is, most hispanic women are white. Actually, spanish women are a mix of Spain PLUS Caribbean or South American Indian. In areas where alot of slaves were brought into a country, there is some black mix, but mostly on the coasts. In Brazil, Cuba, Dominican Republic there were huge amounts of slaves. However, Puerto Rico, Central America, Mexico, the rest of South America there were alot less slaves and the ones that were brought in were mainly kept on the coasts and did not mix easily with the towns inland. So most hispanic women that you see are Spanish because of there ancestry and Spanish people are mostly white but with a very slight mix. Anyway, it is the Hispanic culture that distinguishes hispanic women – it is an ethnic and cultural mix unlike any in the world – Mostly Spanish and Moroccan, some French, Some Italian, Some German, Some Russian, Some Jewish (of all nationalities), and other mediterranean areas.

    You know, what saddens me, as a 1st gen US-born Colombian, is that when people here in the U.S. think of a Colombian woman, all they see is this. Not the amazing accomplishments female Colombian physicians, chemists, engineers, researchers, peace makers, politicians, educators and entrepreneurs have made; they see this stereotype. Go ahead – just google "Colombian women" and look at the results. I prefer to leave my comments about Sofia to myself... I refuse to continue to feed this generalization of Colombian women... Her accent is even induced to make her appear ditzy, when she's really not ditzy at all – but hey, that's what the world wants to see right?

      Actually, no. I've seen her do the stereotypes on the TV show and in the Tyler Perry movie. I'd love to see what she could do in a serious role. I've known one Colombian friend (and her mother) personally, and they are not anything like Sofia, although they are also quite attractive. Some of us do know that Colombian women have brains, too. It's Hollywood that is stuck in a time warp.
