Colombian actress, comedian, television hostess and model Sofia Vergara laughed off her mistakes in pronouncing some of the names of 2012 Golden Globe nominees during a televised live announcement in Beverly Hills, Calif on December 15. This 39 year-old "Modern family" actress also earned chuckles from actor Woody Harrelson and journalists for the mispronouncing. It is because she didn't take those mistakes seriously just as she thinks of comedy. This two times Golden Glove nominated comedian says she chose comedy acting because she "never wanted to be taken seriously."
"Oh my god!" Vergara told OnTheRedCarpet.com special correspondent George Pennacchio of KABC Television, the website's parent company, laughing. "You know what, I think that's why they invited me to do this reading of the nominations, of the names, because they know I'm going to mess it and they want to laugh at me."
Vergara made her comments to OnTheRedCarpet.com at the Beverly Hilton hotel in Beverly Hills, California, moments after she, Harrelson Rashida Jones, Gerard Butler and Harrelson announced the nominations for the 2012 Golden Globe Awards just after 5 a.m. on Thursday, December 15. Sofia is also dashing in her choice of dress. On Wednesday she stepped out in L.A. overexposing her famous curves. Her behind was very visible through her sheer tights worn as pants.
