Here's What Sofia Vergara's Natural Hair Looks Like, And It Isn't Brown

Feeling so misled.

What we didn't know about the CoverGirl and Modern Family star, though, is that she is actually a natural blonde, but she dyed her hair dark when she didn't fit Hollywood's expectations of what a Latina should look like.

"I’m a natural blonde, like my siblings," the Colombian actress told Parade, in a 2011 interview that resurfaced today, which is also her birthday. "When I started auditioning for American acting roles, they didn’t know where to put me. A blond Latina? In L.A. they’re used to Latin women looking more Mexican. But if you go to Uruguay, Argentina, Colombia, everybody is blond."

You can really see her blond locks in this GORGE #throwback of her modeling in the '80s!

And here she is again working her angles and serving FACE in the '90s.

Just in case you need more convincing, here's a classic pic of a blond Vergara casually chillin' with the legendary Celia Cruz.
