Sofia Vergara on Meeting Her Idol Sophia Loren: "I Got Starstruck!"
Imagine finally getting the chance to meet your celebrity idol, only to have your picture with them turn out to be less than desirable. That's exactly what happened to actress Sofia Vergara when she met the legendary Sophia Loren.
The Modern Family star stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Wednesday, where she recalled meeting her beloved Loren at an event dedicated to the gorgeous, talented icon. Despite being starstruck, and some bad lighting, Vergara jumped at the chance to snap a photo with Loren. Though, as she puts it, the pictures look more like she visited Madame Tussauds. "It's awful, I hate it!" she said of the undeniably stiff-looking shots, one of which included director Rob Marshall.
"Why?! This was my opportunity to get a picture with her!" Vergara said. "I am going to photoshop them, or something." (Still, even by "bad" photo standards, Vergara still looks pretty incredible, no?)
Check out the entire clip below, including the actress explaining the reason why she loved sharing the same first name as her idol growing up:
