Crave Online has an interview with Sofia Vergara, here are some of the hightlights:
CraveOnline: You look amazing. Is there anything you don’t look good in?
Sofia Vergara: Well, I don’t look that good in bathing suits anymore.
CraveOnline: But I’m sure it’s still awesome.
Sofia Vergara: Everything is still up there a little bit. Yeah, I would have to say it’s still awesome.
CraveOnline: How important is it for you to be portraying a mixed-race couple on TV?
Sofia Vergara: It’s fantastic. I hope that this new season of TV shows for all the networks, maybe they’ll try to have another Gloria in their cast or that some Latin actress got a job. That would be fantastic. It’s very difficult. Now, it’s less difficult than ever but it’s still, you cannot get as many roles as a normal American person. So for a black actor I’m sure it’s the same.
CraveOnline: I hear you are going to be in the Smurfs movie. Are you a Smurf?
Sofia Vergara: No, no. I’m an executive, a makeup executive. We filmed already in New York during the spring and it’s coming out next summer. Hank Azaria is Gargamel. He looks unbelievable.
CraveOnline: What do you get to do with the Smurfs?
Sofia Vergara: Nothing really. All my scenes are with Gargamel and Neil Patrick Harris. There are Smurfs out there but I don’t see them so I never really have to talk to them which takes hours, those filming with animation.
Sofía, the 37-year-old mother of a teenager, is head-over-heels for handsome one-time film producer Nick Loeb, 34, whom she met at a Golden Globe party in LA in January. “They are so happy and in love,” the friend says of the actress and her new businessman beau. The couple looked cozy while dining with his family and friends in New York on May 19.
