Sofia Vergara covers Harper’s Bazaar.
The fancy-free actress throws caution to the wind and looks glamorous in a high-fashion photo shoot for the magazine. Inside this issue, Vergara chats about her success, her fiance Nick, why her role on Modern Family is perfect for her and much more.
On her favorite thing about Modern Family:
“I would be lying to you if I didn’t say the success of it. For me, it has allowed me to do the things I always wanted—my endorsements.”
On her Modern Family character:
“I don’t think there’s ever going to be a better part for me,” she says. “But I do think—and my son and boyfriend agree with me—that I could play a crazy psychopath. I’m not joking.”
On how she met her fiance:
“We started fighting from the beginning.” This was at the Sunset Tower, after the Golden Globes a few years ago. Vergara was there celebrating in her “gigantic dress,” and she and Nick “got stuck together at a table. So we started harassing each other, and then I saw him and I was like …” She pops her eyes open wide. “He’s really handsome. He’s six foot four, and he has blue eyes and a lot of black hair.” Vergara pauses. “Or it used to be black. Now it’s got a lot of white in it. Nick says all the white hair came from me.”
On learning how to live with another person:
“I’m very independent, so it’s been a process for me, learning to live with somebody,” she admits. “I love the apartment in L.A. because it has his-and-hers bathrooms. I’m very organized and clean, and he’s messy, so I close his door, and I don’t have to see his…mess.”
On what has made her successful:
“You know, I think what has made me successful is that I have no need to prove anything to anyone,” Vergara muses toward the end of our lunch. “There are so many actresses who stop working because they take themselves too seriously—gorgeous women, but no roles. I don’t have those insecurities; I’m very thankful that they’re casting me. Now that I’m getting more secure with acting, I’m sure I could do other things. For example, I know I could do a psychopath.” She grins and then shrugs. “But it’s not like I go to my agent and say, ‘You have to make me in Schindler’s List 2
