From the mouth of Sofia Vergara...

Who said it: Her, or "Modern Family" character Gloria?

March 20, 2012|By Dana Moran | RedEye

Sofia Vergara is a gorgeous, loud, opinionated Latina. Her "Modern Family" character, Gloria, also is a gorgeous, loud, opinionated Latina. When it comes down to it, can you tell the two apart? (Hint: Only one of them is hosting "Saturday Night Live" on April 7 -- we think.) | @redeyedana

1 --  "When I came to the United States and started working, my priority was not to buy a handbag but to spend my money on the maid and a nanny."

2 -- "Dinner and a movie [is a good date]. Or sports, watched in the venue, not on TV. No canoes. No water. Nothing to mess up the hair."

3 -- "I thought one of the advantages of marrying an older guy was that I was going to be able to relax. But all of this swimming and running and rowing, it's just like how some of my relatives got into this country!"

4 --  "Latin men have something inside them, a genetic disposition to be a little sneaky."

5 --  "I'm Columbian, I know a fake crime scene when I see one."

6 --  "The poncho by itself is fine. The poncho plus the flute plus the stupid dance? My son will die a virgin."

7 -- "One time I was screaming with my sister. Then the next day, I told [my boyfriend] I was having lunch with her. He said, `How? You were just fighting with her!'"

8 --  "There's nothing slutty about a dental-floss bikini. You don't even think about it."

9 --  "I come from a neighborhood with a lot of prostitutes."

10 -- "I know you can't tell by looking at me, but I'm not a natural homemaker."

11 -- "You don't want to be skinny when all of your cousins are mermaids."

12 -- " That's when you know your family loves you, when they feel free to scream at you."
