Sofia Vergara is a bundle of cheer as she surfaces in Beverly Hills after getting acclaim


Modern Family superstar Sofia Vergara was a bundle of cheer when she was spotted dashing around in Beverly Hills on Tuesday.

The 51-year-old actress beamed when she was seen crossing a parking garage, swinging a large textured leather handbag.

She emphasized her lithe frame in a fitted black sweatshirt and pulled on a loose-fitted pair of charcoal jeans with the hems folded up.

Rounding off the look with white platforms, she let her luxurious curtains of silky dark hair cascade freely over her shoulders.

Her latest sighting comes weeks after she was heaped with critical acclaim for her role on the Netflix miniseries Griselda, in which she stars as the notorious drug lord Griselda Blanco, also known as the ‘Cocaine Godmother.’

Although the show as a whole was met with mixed reviews, Sofia was praised by the Hollywood Reporter for her ‘serious chops.’

A review from Loud and Clear vaunted Sofia’s ‘magnetic acting,’ and the Star Tribune critic was impressed by ‘her cold-blooded fierceness.’

Released on Netflix on January 25, the six-episode miniseries featured a cast that included Vanessa Ferlito, Karol G and Alberto Guerra. 

‘Cocaine Godmother’ was one of Griselda’s many nicknames – over the years she was also known as ‘La Madrina’ (‘The Godmother’) and ‘The Black Widow.’

Born in Colombia in 1943, Griselda swiftly became a ruthless criminal who committed her first murder when she was 11 and her victim was 10.

In the 1970s she made her bones as a brutally vengeful, groundbreaking player in the Colombia-to-Miami drug trade that flowered during that decade and the one after. 

Griselda married multiple times and produced four children, the youngest of whom she named – in a flash of dark humor – Michael Corleone Blanco.

In the mid-1980s Griselda was thrown in jail for three murders, two of drug dealers and one of a two-year-old boy.

She was set loose in 2004 and deported to Colombia, where in 2012 a motorcyclist shot her dead outside a Medellin butcher shop.

Sofia is herself no stranger to crime in Colombia, as her elder brother Rafael was tragically murdered there in 1998 when an abduction attempt went south.

‘We come from a successful family, and he knew he was a target for kidnapping,’ explained Sofia, whose father was a cattle farmer.

‘He always had bodyguards. Then one day he went out alone and was shot dead. I was devastated,’ she added, according to the New York Post.
