Blonde Ambition
Sofia Vergara returns to her blonde roots.

An unknown fact to many: feisty brunette Sofia Vergara is actually a blonde. The beautiful Latina, the highest paid actress on TV, is known to millions as the star of  the hit comedy Modernas Gloria Delgado Pritchett. Yet she actually colors her hair for the role.

Vergara confessed, “When I first 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 blonde hair. 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.”

Sofia's new sun-kissed look for summer, was done by hairdresser, . Vergara posted the new pic on her Twitter page. Most fans embraced her new look though a few still stuck by her brunette look. While voluptuous Sophia is the blonde in the family, her stunning younger sister Sandra has the dark hair and has appeared in Maxim Magazine. Both sisters ooze the exotic appeal that has made them stars, and America can’t seem to get enough of the outspoken Vergara sister.

Tune into Modern Family on Wednesday at 9 EST on ABC to see and hear more of the lovely star.
