We know how much you guys love Modern Family (not to mention that I’m a big fan myself), so I jumped at the chance to interview Sofia Vergara, who was in NYC to promote her new partnership with Diet Pepsi. Here’s what she had to say…
Glamour: You starred in a Pepsi commercial when you were 17 years old. How does it feel to be back as a Diet Pepsi spokesperson now?
Sofia Vergara: It’s great, you know. It was fantastic when they approached me again, because it’s been like 23 years apart. That was how I started my career in the entertainment business, so to be here now with Diet Pepsi—I mean, it’s something I believe in, the product, it’s been a part of my house and my life… something that I believe in that’s been very special for me.
Glamour: So, any Modern Family scoop for us? Gloria’s pregnant!
Sofia: Gloria’s pregnant. We don’t really know—the writers don’t really tell us what they’re writing because they change. We only know the script as we’re going, like 3-4 days in advance before we start shooting. We’ve shot fun things like Gloria not fitting in her pregnancy clothes and Gloria telling Jay—breaking the news about the pregnancy. I think people are going to love this season.
Glamour: Who do you think will have a harder time adjusting to the baby—Manny or Jay?
Sofia: I think it’s going to be Jay. I think Manny’s ready for it. He’s so mature that he’s up for everything.
Glamour: What’s your favorite *Modern Family *episode of all time?
Sofia: I don’t know. I love all of them. I love the Halloween episode from two seasons ago—we were all in costume. I mean, every time I would see Ed O’Neill dressed like a gargoyle, I couldn’t stop laughing. It was too much.
Glamour: Now, on to the Obesssed questionnaire!
My current obsession is: I love coconut water, I drink Diet Pepsi, desserts—I’m obsessed with everything.
The TV show I’m obsessed with watching is: Oh, I love Revenge, but now it’s on hiatus. Watching Revenge is really crazy.
The album I’m listening to non-stop is: I never get tired of listening to Andrea Bocelli in my car. I’ve had the same CD for 7 years.
The cocktail I’m obsessed with is: I drink white wine right now.
The item in my closet I’m obsessed with is: I have one of my dresses from Kmart that I’ve been wearing a lot, and it hasn’t even come out in the market. But I had one because of the photo shoot, and I’ve been wearing it a lot. And all my friends say, “Can we go buy one?” and I say, “No, not yet!”
My favorite person to follow on Twitter is: I love Ellen [@TheEllenShow].
The next time I have time to myself I’m going to: I’m going this weekend away to a little trip because it’s the long weekend, and I’m dropping my son in Boston to start college again.
My craziest Hollywood moment so far has been: I got to meet Sophia Loren at the Golden Globes, so I was completely paralyzed. I couldn’t even ask her for a picture. Now I regret it every time I think about it.
