Ellen: Sofia Vergara Modern Family
We can never understand what Sofia Vergara is saying when she’s on Ellen. That’s not because of her accent, though, it’s because Ellen’s always making her do ridiculous things or cracking her up. Today’s show was no exception. Ellen and Sofia talked about Columbia, that time Sofia almost got arrested and engaged in the same day and they shot a Diet Pepsi commercial.
Ellen: Sofia Vergara From Columbia
Sofia is from Columbia, so Ellen made her feel at home with a few Columbian staples. She brought her Columbian coffee because Sofia made fun of Ellen’s keurig coffee maker backstage. It took her a minute to warm up to Ellen’s blend. She was thrilled to see her favorite candies on display as well. She refused to eat the lollipops on camera, for fear that people would make dirty jokes about her licking on a sucker.
Ellen: Sofia Vergara Arrested?
For her 40th birthday, Sofia took her friends and family to Mexico for a tourist vacation. Her boyfriend took her to the top of a big pyramid to propose with a huge ring. When they came down, a local tried to arrest her for climbing on the pyramid. Even though her fiancée got permission to go up, the locals were offended that they were climbing on the artifacts.
Ellen: Escape From Planet Earth
In her new animated feature, Escape From Planet Earth, Sofia plays a reporter. She said she had to work on speaking more clearly than her Modern Family character Gloria. She pulled out a couple of hilarious accents for Ellen, but we like her just the way she is.
Ellen: Sofia Vergara Diet Pepsi Commercials
Sofia got her start in acting in a Pepsi commercial at age 17. She skipped around on a beach in Mexico in a teeny weeny bikini. Today, she’s a spokesmodel for Diet Pepsi.
Ellen thought it would be fun for them to do a Diet Pepsi ad together. Last time Sofia came on the show she was in a commercial for CoverGirl with Ellen. Then she didn’t know any of the lines and Ellen had fun with her. Today Sofia knew the lines and had to fight Ellen’s many distractions. Ellen threw birds and silly string, smashed glass bottles on her head and had ping pong balls fall from the sky. Some hot lifeguards came and danced around her. Then Josh Groban came out and yelled opera in her face. I have a feeling this might be Pepsi’s best commercial yet!
