Biography

Sofia Vergara (born 10.7.1972) Sofia Vergara is a Colombian actress, comedian and model. She is perhaps best known for playing the role of Gloria Delgado-Pritchett in Modern Family.

Childhood: Sofia Vergara was born in Barranquilla in Colombia, to Margarita Vergara Davila de Vergara and Julio Enrique Vergara Robayo. Her father was a cattle farmer and she was raised as a Catholic, attending private school, which was bilingual in Spanish and English.

Vergara left school just two semesters before graduating from university, to pursue a career in modeling. Eventually, she moved to Miami, Florida, to escape from the unrest in Columbia that saw her older brother murdered in 1998. When she moved to the States, she took her mother, sister and son with her. Her sister Sandra now also works as an actress.

Career: Sofia Vergara was originally spotted whilst she walked along a Colombian beach. Due to her strict upbringing, she was originally nervous about accepting the offer of television work. With the permission of her Catholic schoolteachers, she undertook her first TV commercial work - an advert for Pepsi.

In Bogota, Columbia, at the age of 20, she began to work as a runway model and on TV. For three years, she presented Fuera de serie, a travel programme that saw her travelling to exotic locations around the world. The show was also broadcast on American network channels, for the Latin American audience.

Vergara then landed a guest appearance in the HBO series Entourage.

After signing a contract with ABC, Vergara went on to star in sitcoms such as Hot Properties and The Knights of Prosperity. She currently stars in Modern Family, along with Ed O'Neill, Ty Burrell and Julie Bowen. In 2010 and 2011, she was nominated for a Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series. She has also been nominated for a Golden Globe and three Screen Actors Guild Awards.

She then went on to play the role of Alicia Oviedo in the Columbian version of Desperate Housewives, entitled Amas de Casa Desesperadas. Her role in the series was, essentially, the Columbian version of Mary Alice Young, played by Brenda Strong in the American original.

Vergara then went on to appear in Dirty Sexy Money, playing the role of Jeremy Darling's love interest.

2009 saw Vergara venture off-screen and onstage, with a five-week stint in a Broadway production of Chicago.

In 2012, Vergara stars in The Three Stooges, an adaptation of the 1930's vaudeville show. The film is a Farrelly Brothers' production and also stars Chris Diamantopoulos, Sean Hayes and Will Sasso as the Three Stooges themselves.

Throughout her career, Sofia Vergara has been chosen as the face of a number of brands and products, including the cosmetics company CoverGirl and Xfinity. She appeared in a Diet Pepsi commercial with David Beckham but the exact nature of her relationship with Diet Pepsi has not yet been formalized.

Personal Life: Sofia Vergara married at the age of 18 and had her first child, Manolo Gonzalez-Ripoli Vergara when she was 20.

In 2000, Vergara was diagnosed with thyroid cancer but she made full recovery after treatment.

The Emoji Movie Review

Weak

There's no reason why this animated comedy adventure needed to be this pointless. Solidly entertaining movies have been made using far less as source material (see The Lego Movie). But while there are some hilarious verbal and visual gags peppered throughout this movie, it all hinges on a script that's painfully obvious and animation that simply isn't inventive enough to hold the attention without a decent story and stronger characters.

It's set in Textopolis, an app inside the smartphone of the teen Alex (Jake T. Austin). The central character is Gene (T.J. Miller), who has far too many expressions for a meh emoji. His parents (Jennifer Coolidge and Steven Wright) worry that he has some sort of defect. Threatened by the cruel senior emoji Smiler (Maya Rudolph), Gene and his pal Hi-5 (James Cordon) sneak out of the app in search of the hacker Jailbreak (Anna Faris), who can help reprogramme him if they can make it to the cloud. But Smiler sends a team of killer bots in hot pursuit.

Yes, the plot is cursory at best, and essentially exists only so the film can namecheck carefully placed apps in a series of sponsored, rather pointless extended set pieces. This leaves the movie feeling like a low-rent variation on Wreck-It Ralph, although only a few of these sequences have any visual interest. The Candy Crush world is at least a colourful alternative to the dull digital look of most of most of the movie. And the lack of imagination shows in the depiction of music streaming as a stream and a firewall as a wall of fire. There's also a strange rush to violence in almost every sequence, as the bots continually try to delete our heroes.

Sofia Vergara Goes Nude For Women's Health Cover


Sofia Vergara

Sofia Vergara has decided to embrace the ageing process, giving an interview as well as posing nude for the upcoming issue of Women’s Health magazine at the age of 45.

The ‘Modern Family’ actress admitted in video content for the magazine that it had been a “powerful” experience to strip off for the photoshoot, and that she had initially been reluctant to do so before realising that it was a golden opportunity to put a woman of her age under the spotlight in the way that society doesn’t even question when it comes to younger women.

“Being naked - I think it's powerful, sensual. And it can be fun!” Colombian-American star Vergara told the interviewer in the upcoming September issue. “I've always been very comfortable with my body. You know, I'm Latin, so we grew up going to the beach in a g-string.”

Emoji Movie Trailer


We use Emojis in text messages and social media everyday, but have you ever thought about what these images get up to when you put away your iPhone? When a high school boy goes to send his crush a 'Meh' emoji, it turns into something quite different. To the disappointment of his parents, Gene has never been quite as apathetic as he's expected to be, so when he messes up his moment it causes quite the problem for everyone else. Now the boy thinks his phone is broken, and he's on the way to get it re-set. That's not looking good for the emojis who find themselves desperately trying to back-up their world in the Cloud before their whole world gets wiped out. Meanwhile, Gene is about to learn that having more than one expression may not be such a bad thing after all.

'Hot Pursuit' Stars Reese Witherspoon And Sofia Vergara Admit An All-Female Production Team Is More Fun


Reese Witherspoon Sofia Vergara

The release of the Sofia Vergara and Reese Witherspoon starrer Hot Pursuit may have caught movie-goers by surprise, but the pairing falls squarely within the “I didn’t even know how much I needed this until now” category.

Academy Award winner Witherspoon, also one of the film's producers, plays an uptight police officer who has to protect the more outgoing widow of a drug boss, played by Colombian-born Vergara. By the synopsis alone, we can lump this in with the kind of cop comedy we’ve seen with Bad Boys, Showtime and, on the “female-driven” front – because that’s a genre now –  Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy’s 2013 offering, The Heat.

"Hot Pursuit" Lags Behind Box Office Predictions And "Avengers: Age Of Ultron"


Robert Downey Jr Reese Witherspoon Sofia Vergara

This weekend at the box office – things went exactly as predicted, in that Avengers maintained its top spot, making bank with another $77.2 million, making it the film with the second highest sophomore weekend gross of all time. It surpassed the second weekend of Fox’s Avatar ($75.6 million) but fell behind predecessor Marvel’s The Avengers ($103.1 million).

Sofia Vergara, Reese Witherspoon
Despite receiving favourable reviews, Hot Pursuit didn't do too well at the box office.

Directed by Joss Whedon, Age of Ultron follows superheroes Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), the Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), Captain America (Chris Evans), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) and Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) as they battle  the new villain of the franchise, technological ultra baddie Ultron (James Spader). Elizabeth Olsen and Aaron Taylor-Johnson also star in the film as twins Wanda and Pietro Maximoff, aka (this isn’t a spoiler, they were in the trailer) Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver.
