She looks 100% European to me.

alberto.r7 September 19, 2017 at 9:45 am

No way. She looks mestizo. I am spanish and I´ve never seen an spanish girl with similar features.

She looks a bit like Billie Piper

BTW, is there any information in the Swedish records on Joel Kinnaman and Alicia Vikander?

Manila January 18, 2016 at 2:26 am

I am not subscribed to their archives. So, it will be difficult to search. But, there is a tip. Kindly, go to FamilySearch catalog and filter the “SEARCH THESE FAMILY HISTORY CENTERS:” to “Online”. Here’s the link: https://familysearch.org/catalog/search

You can go to Swedish birth index in Ancestry.com as well: http://search.ancestry.com/search/db.aspx?dbid=2262

@ Manila

Mercedes Forno León was Italian from father’s side (“Forno”). “León” is Spanish.

“Olaciregui” is Basque surname. Sofia could have other Italian ancestry, “Balti” and “Capella” can be Italian surnames, expecially “Balti” I don’t think it’s Spanish.

Blind bitches. I can CLEARLY see she has some Native American in her. If she was 100% Spanish she wouldn’t have those Asian-looking eyes.

sarahle October 21, 2015 at 9:59 pm

cosmetics…
fake lashes, good mascara and kayal… voila magic!

I can make my eyes looking like that too…

Man from Leblon October 29, 2015 at 7:06 pm

Don’t make me laugh.
I am 1/8 Japanese and I don’t have asian-looking eyes, and neither do any of my cousins.
Where in the world do you get your genetic notions.
If you look at teen pictures you will see that she has no “native” mixing, or if she does it is far back on her bloodline. Please go to Spain and Portugal before you say things like that.

PB1897 November 23, 2015 at 5:34 am

If she has non-European ancestry it’s not much, she’s a White Colombian. She doesn’t have ‘Asian’ looking eyes (I assume you mean epicanthic folds common in East Asians and Amerindians?), please don’t be so ignorant. Interestingly I read she ‘Latinafied’ (US perception of Latin Americans) herself for a US audience.

Manila September 23, 2015 at 8:32 pm

Sofía was married to José Luis “Joe” González Rosales.

The bad news is that we cannot find her baptismal record yet because Nuestra Señora del Carmen, the church of her baptism, is not yet available in FamilySearch.

AW September 9, 2015 at 6:13 pm

She looks very Spanish to me. If she had any African or Native admixture, it’s probably very small.

For me can pass in Spain. When i have doubts i see a family photo and they look mostly White.

lanadelrey September 3, 2015 at 12:18 pm

well she just got the blond hair

lanadelrey August 21, 2015 at 5:35 pm

Come on guys she’s white, her natural hair color is light blond and she has pale skin just that she wears products, makeup to look darker, she looks even whiter than megan fox that have tan skin, if she weren’t colombian or if her eyes were blue you will say she is white stop racist against latinos

California July 24, 2015 at 8:38 pm

Her accent is annoying.
She looks and acts like a whore, and gives and Latinas a bad name.

abbracci June 17, 2015 at 11:58 pm

She’s stunning and exotic! Better than all of the regular Europeans on this site. German, Scottish, Irish…boring. No offense. Blonde hair, blue eyes and fair skin is boring.

J420 August 16, 2015 at 3:02 am

Oh so every single German, Scottish and Irish person has blonde hair and blue eyes? …

Wow you’re an idiot.

M June 6, 2015 at 12:20 am

She does not look like a Spanish Latina. No doubt she has some Native American in there. Why do a lot of Mestizo Hispanics suffer from self hate? They blatantly deny the Native American in their DNA.

marjanel October 13, 2015 at 7:05 pm

She is not denying anything.This siete was not written by ver.If she has indigenous blood it mus be low.She is blonde, and ver real skin color is blonde.Many member of her family re blonde with blue ejes.

marjanel October 13, 2015 at 7:11 pm

She is not denying anything.This site was not written by her and She has never taked about her race.If she has indigenous it must be low.She is blonde and really has pale skin.Many of her family members are blonde with blue eyes and look whiter than her.

Please, put a stress. Thanks.

Kindly change her first name from Sofia to Sofía.

Also, I would like to add the following:
Her parents are Julio Enrique Vergara Robayo and Margarita Vergara Dávila.

Her paternal grandparents are ? Vergara and ? Robayo

Her maternal grandparents are ? Vergara and ? Dávila.

alberto.r7 April 8, 2015 at 3:57 pm

I think she has obviously some Native American blood but she is mainly white. She is probably 3/4 Spanish 1/4 Native American which means that she is “castiza”.

Dogg March 9, 2015 at 3:57 am

I’m gonna be the first to say it: In general, there are no pure white Spanish-Colombians. Most if not all white “Spanish” Colombians have some Native or black somewhere down the lines. No exception.

Sofia Vergara may look mostly white/European, but she most definitely would have SOME Native American blood, no matter how little.

SSP February 10, 2015 at 9:45 pm

Pretty interesting site. I’m Colombian, from the same city as Sofia. It’s part of the atlantic coast of Colombia, most people there are mulatos, in my opinion. Like everywhere, some are mostly black, some mostly white, some in the middle. I’m sure there’s some native too, but much, much less than certain other parts of Colombia. There’s a lot of Lebanese in the coast too. I’m part Lebanese, like Shakira.

Look at Panama, it used to be part of Colombia, it’s a coastal region, mostly mulatos as well. People from the coast are different culturally to others in Colombia. Generalizing, we are like other caribbean people. Also, look at the Pacific Coast of Colombia, that’s another story. In places like Choco, most people there are 100% black.

SSP February 10, 2015 at 9:49 pm
thomas1987 October 17, 2014 at 6:38 am

Its obvious that she’s fully white.just look at her, especially her no makeup pics. And her last name is from Spain. So she’s a white woman.

ribbonista October 29, 2014 at 12:58 pm

A spanish last name doesn’t indicate whiteness, do you have any idea how colonisation even works? By that logic, black americans with english last names are really white.. She’s mestizo, so she’s probably a mix of white and native colombian.

marjanel January 4, 2015 at 6:36 pm

How do you know what is she? How do you know if she is mestiza or white? Why not mulatto?There are blacks in Colombia.And obviously she has Spanish last name because spanish ancestry not like black americans

Jello February 2, 2015 at 10:40 pm

Sofia looks like she is mostly of European and African descent. Her mouth and huge back side makes it clear.

aroxysimon August 20, 2014 at 4:06 pm

wonder if she’s 100 percent spanish

J.J. August 21, 2014 at 3:18 am

doubt it, but whatever native she has wouldn’t be significant

strawberry20 August 19, 2014 at 7:56 pm

most latin american courtries are not a melting pot like USA excect for Brazil & argentina they have more european influcences, just because the spanish/portuguese colonized doesnt mean that everybody are descendants. so did the dutch and french too, they colonizedsome part of south america. im so sick of making people assumptions about peoples cause of their looks or surname.

fuzzybear44 August 20, 2014 at 1:52 am

@strawberry20

Yes dutch , french,Irish,Scots,Polish,German etc.Asians(Chinese,Japanese,Korean,Filipinos,Hindu etc).Syrian and Lebanese, Iraqi and Africans.All mixed up in what is called Latin America.Most of the Europeans groups came during the late 18 early 1900’s,and have assimilated.All you have to do is look it up

WTF August 14, 2014 at 3:41 pm

she never seemed white to me, even if she does look “mostly white”. i still see native features, specifically her eyes.

J.J. August 18, 2014 at 2:14 am

her slanted eyes are a common spanish feature, i’d say native shows more in her puffy mouth & cheeks and her nose is slightly broad despite being defined towards the tip, looks as if she possibly had a nose job, but she definitely looks predominately white, more white than selena gomez for instance

marjanel August 18, 2014 at 10:24 pm

More white than many “white Americans” that nobody would doubt of their “pure white blood”.

ShawntheGod July 27, 2014 at 5:13 am

Ahhh, I knew she was fully white.

Mr.Dr.Buffalo August 9, 2014 at 9:59 pm

shut up bagina kisser shes latina

J.J. August 14, 2014 at 3:54 am

latina isn’t a race, latina’s are caucasians from european countries that speak latin languages (portugal, spain, france, italy, romania)

Cossette271 August 15, 2014 at 10:29 am

Real pure Latin’s by blood ARE white, LOOK IT UP! Where do you think the native’s of the america’s got the name? Why do you think they speak Spanish or Portuguese? Come on people, get it together. Real Latin’s are European/white.

SEEXYPUREBLOODLATINA July 6, 2014 at 7:48 pm

YESSSS HUNNY THIS IS MY GRL FROM MY BIIIIRTH COUNTRY!!!WEEEPA! WE BOTH FLYYYY COLOMBIANS!! EXCEPT HER AND SHAKIRA ARE WHAT I CALL THE “WHITE-LOOKING” COLOMBIANS. I AM NOT. IM THE REAL “LATINA LOOKING” COLOMBIAN, SO TO SPEAK, VERY EXOCTIC LOOKING AND I LOOOVE IT!!IM DARK SKIN DARK, DARK HAIR (NON AFRO, NON CAUCA) SO WE COME IN DIFFERENT SHAPES COLORS AND SIZES TOO!

sararuiz July 10, 2014 at 4:23 pm

Shakira is only Colombian by nationality. Her mother is Spanish and Italian and her father is lebanese. Also, I hate to be the one to say it, but someone has to: WHY ARE COLOMBIANS SO FUCKING CONCEITED?! come mierda

marjanel August 9, 2014 at 8:53 pm

First, Shakira´s mother is Colombian. Second, in Colombia have Spanish, Italian and Lebanese ancestry is very normal especially in Barranquilla.If we follow your logic, then there will not be any Colombians in Colombia.

J.J. August 14, 2014 at 3:56 am

colombian like every single other european colonized country (USA, canada, mexico, australia, new zealand etc) are only nationalities, they’re only ethnicities if the person is 100% native

strawberry20 August 18, 2014 at 3:31 pm

not really latin america is Not like the USA, Canada, autralia, and new zealand mixed with cultures all over the world. and latin american coutries were colonized by europeans, but we still have our own culture/ethnicity we are not a melting pot like the USA and other english speaking coutries

marjanel August 18, 2014 at 10:15 pm

Of course that we are melting pot. Here in Latin America , there are people from many origins races and religions , that is the meaning of being a melting pot, Second the culture in each latin America coutry has received influences of all their immigrants.You must travel more and to know more our region.

J.J. August 19, 2014 at 9:29 am

@strawberry20
i don’t know what you’re on about, but you sound very oblivious to south american culture. South America was invaded but European nations particularly Spain & Portugal and majority of the population have the ancestry of such, it is true many are mixed race but as i’ve stated you cannot claim countries like mexico and brazil as ethnicities when most people from those countries have european surnames like “Vergara”, it’s nothing to do with a melting pot, many European countries like the UK have become melting pots, doesn’t change the fact that the country has it’s native peoples or “pure bloods”. So as i’ve stated, south american countries are never an actual “ethnicity” unless the person is of a native bloodline as they were the original peoples, if you’re a person with a spanish surname and caucasian facial structure then clearly your ancestry is European, not south american, regardless of how many generations you are. There are many White American celebrities from the USA of 10+ generations but their ethnicity will never be considered “American” as all white people are European by blood, it’s not hard to understand

marjanel August 14, 2014 at 11:17 am

Sorry But there is not something like “latino looking”

Cossette271 August 15, 2014 at 12:41 pm

You really need to do research, you will realize how silly you sound.

she’s so not spanish-colombian she has a little bit native

strawberry20 November 7, 2013 at 9:18 pm

just because her surname may be spanish it’s like saying african- american has english heritage cause of their surname

notional November 7, 2013 at 9:24 pm

No, because she’s predominately European, you can tell just by looking at her. She doesn’t look Native American.

She’s probably around 95% European and 5% Native.

notional November 7, 2013 at 5:14 pm

Ethnic can you change it to Euro-Colombian? You have Afro-Colombian, Afro-Venezuelan, Afro-Brazilian as ethnicities so why not Euro-Colombian? Just Colombian suggests that she is predominately Native American, which isn’t true. She’s probably around 95% European.

ethnic November 7, 2013 at 5:35 pm

As her name is of Spanish origin it would be fair to say that she has Spanish heritage.

Thanks.

J.J. October 23, 2013 at 8:47 pm

correction; she is not naturally blonde, her hair is and always has been dark brown (brunette) I don’t know where the rumour of her being naturally blonde came from. She use to dye it blonde when she was younger but she always had dark roots, heres a picture of her younger with bottle blonde hair and dark roots;

kyle August 14, 2014 at 1:03 am

I’m just letting you know that you’re talking a lot of BS I’m of German ancestry but my stepmom is Colombian and she just so happens to be Sofia vergaras second cousin by marriage. As far back as we’ve known her she has had blonde hair she dyed it dark brown I’m order to match her very strong Hispanic accent which I find very ignorant because when I went to South America I saw many people who were in fact brown but I also saw a lot of people who looked like me, some were even whiter than me and I am 100% German. My stepmom has pale skin, green eyes, and natural blonde hair. Hispanics can be white I hope you know that, jus as Hispanics can be black, and even Asian because being Hispanic is an ethnicity/ heritage not a race so I can have black,blonde,brown,red hair or dark brown,light brown, hazel,green, or blue eyes it has nothing to do with being Hispanic

kyle August 14, 2014 at 1:04 am

I apologize for my a million typos.

zombiecop September 22, 2013 at 11:20 pm

Colombian is not an ethnicity colombians are immigrants from Spain and other countries.

luluz September 20, 2013 at 8:50 pm

she is a white latina or brown… but if i have to guess white cuz she looks more white

correction; her eyes are hazel (light brown) and her hair is dark brown (brunette) I think it should be listed

anakaterina October 14, 2013 at 1:27 pm

Correction: her hair is naturally blonde

eLl November 6, 2013 at 6:47 pm

CORRECTION: She WAS BLONDE AS A CHILD. Like many brunette’s, her hair darkened as she grew older. Its called a “lazy gene”, the true hair color doesn’t appear until the body begins to mature. She says she dyes her hair brown for acting roles but if you look at her roots you’ll see they are a darker brown than her light brown highlights. Also, if you google “Sofia Vergara young” there are many photos of her with bleached blonde hair and brown roots. I’m a natural blonde, I can spot a bleach job from 100 yards in failing light without roots, rest assured, SHE IS A BRUNETTE

follers November 6, 2013 at 6:53 pm

She’s listed as a brunette right now.

fuzzybear44 November 8, 2013 at 3:53 am

I’m looking at her hair right here,it looks brown to me:
http://media2.whosaystatic.com/437602/437602_800wc.jpg

Also in my opinion,it doesn’t look like she had that much work to do,to look like a latina;at least from this picture

J.J. June 18, 2013 at 5:22 am

correction; colombian and south american countries are not an ethnicity, if mexican, colombian, argentinian etc qualify for an ethnicity then so would USA, Canada and Australia. If she is colombian with a surname like Vergara her background is obviously spanish and it’s possible she’d have native in her aswell e.g. mayan or aztec. Perhaps you could list hispanic or latino colombian to show the origin traces back to Europe (Iberian peninsula/western mediterranean) like how some pages say anglo infront of American or Australian when the European origin isn’t 100% accurate/known

guurl August 2, 2013 at 10:39 am

Agreed. She was a natural blonde as a child. She is predominantly Spanish.

fuzzybear44 August 3, 2013 at 4:58 am

@guurl

( She is predominantly Spanish.)

Maybe

ssempre August 10, 2014 at 1:02 am

Just because they are naturally blonde, doesn’t mean they are white. There is a lot of racial mixing in Latin America so two visibly mestizos could give birth to a blonde child. I have friends who are sisters, one is seemingly a white latina and the other is an afro latina/afro mestiza. The same goes for my sister and I, we are both half latino but I look like a mestiza and she just looks white.

fuzzybear44 August 3, 2013 at 4:56 am

@J.J.

(colombian and south american countries are not an ethnicity, if mexican, colombian, argentinian etc qualify for an ethnicity then so would USA, Canada and Australia. )

you might as well cut out everything.Saying french doesn’t mean your white,just like African does doesn’t mean black anymore.

(If she is colombian with a surname like Vergara her background is obviously spanish)

Not necessarily,there were a number of different European Cultural affiliations,that set up shop in that country.There’s no telling what’s in her background,people adopt names to fit in.

(Perhaps you could list hispanic or latino colombian to show the origin traces back to Europe (Iberian peninsula/western mediterranean) like how some pages say anglo infront of American or Australian when the European origin isn’t 100% accurate/known)

I do see your suggestion,but even that might not work.These people are so mixed with (Euro,native,African,Asian),that they are confused about their own background;they go by what they are told,which isn’t always truthful.

anakaterina October 14, 2013 at 1:29 pm

She’s Colombian. In Colombia there was no Maya or Aztec those were in Mexico. They had the incas in Colombia though. I would say she is predominantly European

marjanel August 9, 2014 at 8:59 pm

Incas only settled in a little part of the south of Colombia (Pasto) for a short period of time. Sofia Vergara is from Barranquilla, a city in the north part of Colombia, a city which doens´t have many links with Pasto. She can´t be Inca.

notional November 6, 2013 at 11:33 pm

Agreed, Colombian isn’t an ethnicity unless they’re talking about Indigenous Colombian.

If Colombia doesn’t have ancestry records then list her as Euro-Colombian or White-Colombian like ‘Petrarca’ suggested.

Petrarca June 1, 2013 at 5:50 pm

Latino/Latin American is not an ethnicity. Afro-Colombian is. White Colombian is. The indigenous groups have their own ethnicities. Sofia Vergara is a White Colombian. End of story. She admits to making her appearance more “Latina” to appeal to Latin American audiences. She is not Mulatto, Mestizo, Triracial, etc.

none April 27, 2013 at 11:23 pm

only in this Hemisphere are Hispanics called Latinos. this is a misnomer since the Latin language belong only to the Romans. the people of Rome in Italian are known as Latino or Latina(birthplace of the Latin people is Latium, modern day Lazio, of which Rome is the capital) no one in Europe, except the British of course, call Hispanics or Latin Americans “Latinos” as a derogative term to lump Mediterraneans with Spanish speaking Indians as if no difference exists between them.Attention Hispanics, stop hijacking Italian culture, call youselves whatever you want but Latin, which you are certainly not.

Marc 2 April 28, 2013 at 7:56 am

Rather. “Latina” became just some kinda brand. which designed to erase ethnic rootes and memories for many people

Justify May 15, 2013 at 12:11 am

I know what you mean, it’s like saying Italians are white…when they obviously aren’t. People can’t seem to get ethnicity’s right.

andrew May 15, 2013 at 10:00 am

I know what you mean, it’s like saying ” Justify” is a smart guy…when he obviously isn’t. “Justify” can’t seem to get ethnicity’s right.

Justify May 19, 2013 at 1:03 am

The real whites are the Anglo-Saxons. Not the olive skinned Mediterraneans, so, yes, you are correct the real Latins are Italian…who are not really white :)

andrew May 19, 2013 at 7:05 am

ah ok..thanks for the history lesson.. “The real whites are the Anglo-Saxons”!!!, that’s the old concept of “WASP (meaning even Irish and Polish weren’t *white* being Catholics and NOT Anglo-Saxon). You forget “Anglo-Saxon” argument is pointless since history of British Isles doesn’t start since Anglo-Saxon invasion, that’s why a considerable part of what you call Anglo-Saxons are actually of Mediterranean type. Also the English language is largely influenced by Latin, just 1/3 or less of his vocabulary has Germanic influence, that’s why many English words are similar to Italian and French

ricksterflo May 19, 2013 at 10:27 am

Wow, bravato Andrew, and now that is some effort to just say who cares. (Handshake). Justify, since when are you rectus and right about Italians are not and Anglo-Saxons are. ? YOU are stupid and brainless because in truth if people wanted to be cruel to such only I2 people are caucasian, and Anglo-Saxons do not have that gene. Caucasian is a genetic admixture of several genes in consideration, and genetic history of Europe is ultimately admixture all around in Europe. Also,Italians and Spaniards are ultimately white because there are some neonazis,social contruct, and integration ofwhitehood. Hell, when segegration happened equal white areas determined that, and of course, jews, italians, negroids, japs, chinese, so on because of Ethnicity, not always race. And no one in this world cannot purify a race at alllll because what is natural overrules, and that is natural. why in the world would we have had such an admixture if such? Can’t

J.J. June 18, 2013 at 5:37 am

anglo-saxons were just one germanic tribe which invaded england, they were not the only whites nor were they the most pure, there were many other germanic tribes and there is no such thing as a pure white as all european caucasians would have been mixing for thousands of years plenty of centuries before the saxon tribe even existed, if this was not the case then all white caucasians today would be ash blondes with pale white skin and deep blue/violet eyes. the only difference between mediterraneans and nordics is the extent they’ve mixed, the mediterranean has had many arab invasions where as the nordics and germanic tribes had little invasions from other continents. They’re still considered the same race (white caucasians) and exist within the same continent

J.J. June 18, 2013 at 5:29 am

Italians are white european caucasians, yes they’re technically mediterranean caucasians not nordic caucasians and most have dark hair and eyes not to mention some having an olive complexion in their skin, but olive skin still comes under the white caucasian category, it is just a variation. and news flash, no caucasian is pure otherwise they’d all be ash blondes with pale white skin and deep blue/violet eyes. Italy is in Europe and the people are therefore considered white caucasians

fuzzybear44 June 18, 2013 at 6:51 am

@JJ

I like the way you keep Identifying them as (white Caucasians),instead of just Caucasians

andrew June 19, 2013 at 1:46 am

There arent just “Med” and “Nordic” as Euro types, u forget “Alpine” (do a research) as one of the three sub-races of the Caucasian race .Btw those are historical race concept defined by some late 19th-century and early 20th-century anthropologists.
https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/4/4a/Passing_of_the_Great_Race_-_Map_4.jpg
I dont know which is your education level but saying “the mediterranean has had many arab invasions where as the nordics and germanic tribes had little invasions from other continents” is crap

fuzzybear44 June 19, 2013 at 5:07 am

@Andrew

You Do know that those 19th-century and early 20th-century anthropologists,were full of crap

J.J. June 24, 2013 at 8:39 pm

i’m well aware of alpine and i know the the native anglo celts of britain & ireland were alpine and it’s the germanic invasions that introduced the nordic gene, however i find alpine to be a difficult race to classify as. The way i see it alpines are just white europeans with more prominent features rather than more defined ones, and there are plenty of alpine looking people in scandanavia with very light features, so i ask you what is alpine? could they be the result of a nordic and an african/asian (i find that hard to believe as the gene would either have been bred out or they would have spread dark features all over europe and europeans woudn’t have the light features the do today), could they be the native inhabitants of europe before the indo aryan nordics entered (also hard to believe as they would have to of had light features otherwise when the indo aryans came into contact the light features would have been bred out like what happened in the mediterranean, and it’s hard to believe that both the native alpine inhabitants had light features aswell as the indo-aryan nordics). So that is why i choose not to mention alpine because it is a sub category of the caucasian race who’s origin is hard to identify.

andrew June 27, 2013 at 5:48 pm

those anthropologists studied skeletons/skulls, they did mistakes but their work is not all crap

bellaressiosa June 26, 2013 at 7:25 pm

Clearly you need to review the source of your information as you are actually incorrect. Let me assist you in getting your facts straight. Latinas (of which I am one) is a shortened term deriving from the collective term “Latin American” or “Latin America”. Therefore, just to connect the dots for you, people that were either born in Latin America or live in Latin America call themselves either Latina or Latina (depending on their gender). It is not a name/term that Spanish speaking people have acquired to liken themselves to Italians, because trust me, why would we? We are proud of our cultural and racial heritage and do not need to be aligned with Italian heritage. Now, let me break it down for you further. The term Latin American was first used in 1861 by a South American magazine with reference to the collective Spanish speaking cultures of South and Central America. So that you are clear, the term Latin defines any of the “Romance languages” of which Spanish and Portuguese are two. It has nothing to do with your warped reference to Rome, other than the fact that many of the romance languages (ie. Italian, Frence, Spanish, Portuguese, Romanian, etc) have a direct root to Latin. Perhaps what is more offence than the collective term “latina/latino” is the derogatory racial terms that are used in all of these posts (above and below). South American and Central American people have rich and varied cultural heritage, mostly linked by our cultural traditions and our common languages. We believe in our connectedness as people of Latin America and we are “latino/latina” regardless of your nonsensical views. It’s a term we use to define our people so your approval really isn’t needed, nor wanted.

marjanel August 9, 2014 at 9:04 pm

No, the word Latinoamericano comes from Latino not the contrary. And the term is relationed with Romans and was invented by Napoleon not by any Magazine. Search the origin of the word Latin American and you would know that is relationed with Rome. I´am Latin America too.

RexSteelMax December 16, 2012 at 10:31 pm

She is brown. Her skin has always been brown. Hollywood never “changed” anything. Brown is her natural skin color. Seriously, I don’t get how everyone is arguing she’s white… and i mean physically WHITE! Not by nationality. We’re ALL MIXED! But overall she is brown. What’s wrong with that? NOTHING.

BellaTrainer December 24, 2012 at 9:14 am

Why are you obsessed with skin color? Sofia, like almost everyone else is not “one” thing. She is a mixture, just like most everyone in her country. Most Colombians have a lot of European blood running through their veins. 50% of the country is Mestizo (mixed European) and almost 40% are white European. These are rough estimates from online but you get the picture. Very few African and Ameri Indian blood left…I do not care. I am just pointing out the obvious. She is very pretty but I’d say, a tad overrated at the moment. Just my opinion

Belokki March 28, 2013 at 5:01 am

sorry to break this to you, but Sofia is a White Colombian. Her natural hair color is blond.

On the Lopez Tonight show she said, when she arrived in Hollywood, they made her tan and dye her hair, because she wasn’t “latina” enough, so they made her more “ethnic” looking to fit the “latina stereotype”. Numerous actors actresses can confirm this.

RexSteelMax April 25, 2013 at 10:40 pm

That doesn’t mean ****, Belokki. Anyone can get tanned if they aren’t “latina” enough. Because Latino isn’t a race. Her skin isn’t white is all I’m saying. Brown. Do people on here not like that word or something? Fine, then mixed. All I know is that skin is definitely NOT white. It’s like calling the sky green. When she tans it’s unbelievable. No white woman tans that dark. None!

kyle August 14, 2014 at 1:13 am

You have some serious issues, white people do tan because I am white, both my parents are German blonde hair blue eyes and we all tan very dark in the summer. Melanin gets more productive in order to protect the skin from harmful rays. Sofia vergara is not brown because she is seen very white in some pictures as very tan in others. She is simply a white Hispanic her race is white and her nationality is Colombian and her ethnicity is Hispanic she is a Latina women with mostly Spanish ancestors like most people from south and Central America. The thing is that in South America there is a lot of European blood that hasn’t died off and mixed with itself so there a lot of blonde blue eyes people walking around South America example Argentina and Venezuela probably the most “white” countries in South America.

nnnnn April 26, 2013 at 11:50 pm

Her natural hair colour is blond??? Not possible

SvenneL April 28, 2013 at 8:37 pm

It is blonde. How is not possible? If you look at a high resolution photo of her you’ll notice that her eyebrows are a dark blonde/light brown color.
http://www.photoinpixel.com/mypicture/sofia-vergara-hd-wallpaper.jpg
People can have blonde hair and brown eyes. People can have black hair and white skin. Do you not know how genes work?

andrew May 15, 2013 at 10:25 am
J.J. August 14, 2014 at 4:04 am

it is possible once upon a time when she was very young she had light hair, but earlier pictures of her in her teens and early 20’s, her hair is dyed blonde and dark at the roots

bellaressiosa June 26, 2013 at 7:31 pm

You are an idiot. “She is brown” ? Clearly you are colour blind and need an urgent review of the colour palette. Shall I send you a swatch of browns? The terms, ‘brown’, ‘black’, ‘yellow’, ‘red’ and ‘white’ need some serious readjustment. They are derogatory and unnecessary.

anakaterina October 14, 2013 at 1:31 pm

George Clooney is also tan so is he not white either going by your dumb logic. She is predominantly European whether you like it or not

J.J. August 14, 2014 at 4:26 am

@rexsteelmax
you are really uneducated and make yourself sound very sad. “she is brown” perhaps her complexion has slight brown hues but it wouldn’t be defined as ‘brown’ a prominent beige colour perhaps, but it definitely is on the light side of the skin colour spectrum. I think you need a reality check, no one has ‘white’ skin and if you think otherwise go look at the palest person you know, put a white piece of paper next to their skin tone and tell me if it matches because i guarantee you it won’t. A person being defined as “white” has nothing to do with literal colour, it merely refers to a person who has skin on the light side of the spectrum with a caucasian facial structure (particularly european phenotype), it is also often considered a culture thing as european people often referred to as “westerners” have always been perceived as white. It is true southern europeans like the spaniards and the portuguese have undergone arab invasions from north africa which has left them with darker features to the rest of europe but it is rode off as a drop in the pond and their culture has still remained more similar to that of mainstream europe rather than north africa and the middle east. so saying people like sofia vergara of obvious european descent with a white phenotype aren’t “white” because her skin isn’t as pale like that of mainstream western europe is just plain ignorant and just a little bit prejudice. educate yourself on terms like “white” when it comes to race, because i know where you’re coming from but people on this site (myself included) take race very seriously and don’t like when ignorant people refer to people of southern european descent as ‘brown’ just because they’re not pale and don’t fit the social moronic perception of “white”

marjanel October 13, 2015 at 7:22 pm

No her skin color is not brown.It seems that she has use a lot of tan products.Also her family is not that brown either Look at photos of her family,some are blonde with blue eyes like her brother

anakaren November 14, 2012 at 3:34 am

ok americans in Colombia, Mexico, Venezuela, latin america in general, there also WHITE PEOPLE GET IT!!! WE ARE A MIXED FROM SPANIARDS AND NATIVE AMERICANS!! UGHHHHHHHHHHHH

Sofia’s good on Modern Family. :]

LAgal188 August 5, 2012 at 2:57 pm

First of all, that is not her natural hair color, and that sure as HELL isn’t her natural skin color. In fact, her skin looks like its been burned and cooked in pot. It looks like damaged white skin. Her neck is a bit white. Honestly, I feel so sorry for this girl. Poor sofia vergara, who has to darken/tan her naturally FAIR, pale skin, and darken her naturally blonde hair into a coal black color. She is doing all this just so she can fit into Hollywood’s fucked up idea of what a Latina/Latino should look like. Just so she get parts in Hollywood. I feel really bad for this girl, she is damaging her naturally pale skin by constantly tanning it for the stupid Hollywood directors, as well as taking away her natural beauty by darkening her naturally, beautiful blonde hair. She looks so much better with blonde hair. And it’s natural! Hollywood is taking away her natural beauty! I feel so bad for her, she’s naturally gorgeous and ruining that..

Blonde Frizzles May 13, 2012 at 8:56 am

It’s not worth fighting over whether you think she’s white or not. It doesn’t change who she is. Anyway, she is really beautiful!

hi April 8, 2012 at 11:22 am

i thought she was just a hot white chick from Colombia.

DaTruth April 29, 2012 at 6:57 pm

i don’t care how much you guys boohoo and poohoo. That is not what white women look like…. No one is denying that she has Spaniard blood…. However, there’s more to her than that. Like others are saying, she’s most likely multiracial. Only 20% of Columbia is white (European) and i doubt they look like this.

Jerry302 May 10, 2012 at 6:08 pm

Um, yeah. Sorry but your wrong. First off I have to say I have seen many white woman in my short lifetime since I have been alive that are hotter than Sophia Vergara. They just aren’t celebrities(although there are a few hotter white woman who I would consider hotter.) But there are MANY who aren’t celebrities. You just have to live in the right areas. Second she has natural blonde hair and looks really good & white with it. : D Like a white girl with a tan, you know those really hot white girls. Mostly in Europe or rich neighborhoods you will find the hot white woman. But yes, the average white girl isn’t as hot, but the ones that are. HELL YES!!!!

Over900000 September 16, 2012 at 9:35 pm

You can’t tell she is full white by just looking at her. Granted, it does seem like she has a high percentage of Spanish but the chances of her having Native are high!

Jerry302 May 10, 2012 at 6:10 pm

And if you need proof just look at her photo shoots from the 90’s where she was sporting her natural blonde hair. : D

Jerry302 May 10, 2012 at 6:17 pm

Oh, and you are probably correct about her being multiracial but the fact is she has white skin. Which is why she looks so sexy. It ain’t black. Why do you think they call Obama black even though he is mixed? Because he has black skin. Deeeeeeeeeeeeeeeerp.

DaTruth May 11, 2012 at 8:41 am

Shut the hell up you ignoramus. That is not white skin…. Emma Stone, that is white skin. Can you not see her melanin? You know nothing about genes. Just because you’ve seen “many white women in your short life” doesn’t mean a little something something is not present. Show me a woman who’s 100% anything, AND prove it with her DNA results… Thank you!

Over900000 September 16, 2012 at 9:35 pm

She is definitely NOT BLACK you idiot. She is so gorgeous and has the perfect figure unlike alot of these plastic females. She is Columbian/white!!

M March 19, 2012 at 11:07 pm

She’s a typical triracial Colombian. A mix of Spanish, Amerindian, and black.

Jenifer March 18, 2012 at 3:13 pm

Colombia is its own country, therefore it is it’s own ethnic. Why would an American just be considered white? There’s people from Ireland, Canada, Scotland, France, Paris, and many other places where they are white. Makes no sense not so call them by their country’s title.

BIG PAC March 18, 2012 at 3:19 pm

Tyrone February 28, 2012 at 3:20 am

Its a Latin Name. But to me it sounds spanish

I love you, Roger Scientist March 21, 2012 at 10:27 pm

Vergara sounds Spanish, not Italian.

Elle February 8, 2012 at 3:20 am

shes columbian. why cant people just accept shes columbian and they dont think of themselves and spanish or italian or native, they think of themselves as columbian because thats what they are!

Gutierrez January 29, 2012 at 6:53 am

She is a Colombian white woman. She is of Mediterranean European ancestry. She looks Mediterranean. Like Spain, southern France, Italy, Portugal, Albania, Greece. Latin European.

Tyrone February 28, 2012 at 3:22 am

Your right about her looking mediteranean euro but lets face it… She look Spanish from Spain or Brazillian. Thats just my opinion

Tyrone February 29, 2012 at 6:13 pm

Ok Skip the part where i said brazillian just leave it at Spanish

Over900000 September 16, 2012 at 9:39 pm

Lady Avarice January 27, 2012 at 9:51 pm

She looks Latin like Spanish from Spain or Italian, but she can never pass for a Nordic.

anen February 7, 2012 at 4:27 pm

what do u mean? she’s the same or even more “nordic” looking than Cheryl Cole/Pam Anderson who are full Nordic

She’s almost 40 and has changed her look a bit but if u see the Young Sofia, in what was her most natural state…
http://www.publispain.com/sofiavergara/galeriadefotos.htm

Tyrone February 28, 2012 at 3:25 am

well obviously shes changed because shes no longer young like those photos but she still one 40year old hot sexy mamasita. Besides i rekn she suits black/brown hair. She dont like her natural blonde hair anyways

sycogcx January 23, 2012 at 10:01 pm

I love her! Shes so beautiful! ( I love the new rule thing; NO RACIST OR ABUSIVE COMMENTS OR YOU WILL BE BLOCKED. I got so tired of racist comments

Joe January 22, 2012 at 5:11 am

Just an observation,if someone is Colombian,Mexican,or other LatinAmerican descendent they are just labeled such.No one is asking how much European,American Indian or African descent Sofia Vergara has,so why ask that about Americans ? how much of this or that they have.Wouldn’t they all just be American?

Johnny Depp is listed as White in websites like NNDB

And many other Americans actors who have been mentioned having 1/8 asian/nativeamerican/black ancestors are also listed as White in this website…

Whatever her exact ethnicity is, She’s Mostly of Euro ancestry I come to that conclusion by the way she talks about her family “Very Blond. My whole family is blond blue eyes, very nice.” Reference: ‘The View’ interview

storm January 29, 2012 at 12:26 am

they only consider you “biracial” if you are at least a quarter or more of another race.

you’ll notice that halle b., thandie newton, kristin kreuk, rashida jones, charisma carpenter, keanu reeves, dean cain, mariah carey, moon bloodgood, etc. etc. etc. are actually listed as ‘multiracial’

kjsdfks January 16, 2012 at 1:46 pm

And just so you know, concerning the human being, there is no such thing as “race” either. Those are terms you apply to dogs or horses, but no one has proved there are different human races. And believe me, they have tried!

kjsdfks January 16, 2012 at 1:43 pm

There is no such thing as “colombian ethnicity”! So idiotic..

Alice January 12, 2012 at 3:57 am

The name Vergara is the Castilianized form of the Basque surname Bergara. One of her European ancestries would Spanish.

Marc January 20, 2012 at 5:19 am

Thanks! but we know just her parents.Her mother is Margarita Vergara Davila de Vergara.Some aristocratic spanish surnames such complex :) what is her nee surname? Davila? It is also Spanish surname originated from Central region Spain called Avila.It would be very intersting to see their family tree.i think most of their ancestors were from Spain

Alice January 20, 2012 at 5:21 am

Her family tree would be interesting. I agree most of her family’s origins are Spanish.

Alice January 20, 2012 at 5:22 am

I meant to say “most likely” Spanish.

Being latina is being of latin orgin which is WHITE stuid ass.even the language we speak is from a white man. Majority of us race wise are mestizos (indigenous/spanish)some of african decent and some pure white or arabic. Read up honey you sound stupid as fuck

No, white people are obsessed with her because she looks white. Sure she probably has some other race mixed in her blood somewhere down the line. But she has white skin and NATURALLY Blonde hair. That’s being white whether you want to admit it or not. If she should be considered “any race” it should be white, not “hispanic” just because she has a little of that. I mean her dominant features are white including HER SKIN for christs sakes. She is a latina, not doubt about that. Because she was born and raised in a LATIN culture. It is a culture after all. : D Why do you think most people consider Obama black even though he is mixed? Explain that one? I will help you out, because he looks black and has black skin. : D Fun fact. Yes, you can call her “mixed” if you want to be as accurate as possible. But she is mixed in the same way Obama is mixed. It doesn’t take away from the fact that she has white skin and naturally blonde hair. : D

You’re right her race shouldn’t be considered hispanic since hispanic is NOT a race, moron

Catherine W. July 8, 2011 at 11:59 pm

Who’s the IDIOT that made this page? COLUMBIAN? REALLY?

it’s COLOMBIA and it should say Race: White Ethnicity: Colombiam

Catherine W. July 8, 2011 at 11:59 pm

Colombian*

LOL September 30, 2011 at 3:26 pm

LMAO! You know you just contradicted yourself!

Niklaus October 18, 2011 at 8:30 am

lmao right back at u man. how exactly is she contradicting herself ??? are u aware that colombia is only a country nothing more nothing less. and colombian would be only a nationality nothing more. where do u think most of the latinos came from ? come magical land called latinia ? they came from europe ofc. some of them did mixed with natives but some didnt. so that makes them white same as US whites rly. the only ppl that lived there in pre columbian era were native americans. does she look mayan to u ???

phillygurl July 20, 2011 at 1:17 pm

Wow. For someone who thinks we should get pass race, you sure as hell are quick to point out that a latina is white, when you see them. She does not consider herself white lol and like other latinas in hollywood, she has had more black men run up in her than Kim Kardashian. So it is not always about race to all latinos.

rafael July 20, 2011 at 5:35 pm

phillygurl,what black men has she been with?

phillygurl July 21, 2011 at 5:51 am

Tyrese, Craig David, John Singleton. The media will only tell you about the Tom Cruises and Nick Loebs that she dates.

rafael gonzalez July 21, 2011 at 9:43 am

yeah but you have the inside scoop

LOL September 30, 2011 at 4:16 pm

OMG! SMMFH! Wow read books people not the internet! A Latina is not white! Latina has to do with all types of cultures that are similar due to history and the language spoken in the country, Spanish being one. She is Hispanic and we are all different shapes and colors. JLO has dark hair but dyed it lighter…why for a part or because she just wanted to do it. Sofia is a humble person that’s what matters. Its funny because if your love life was open to the public I’m sure we would know all the people that ran up in you to! Shhhh for all we know you could have way more people than her. You could respond and lie about it of course beacuase a hoe would never admit to being one. Oh and by the way the media (if you know any better) lies to. If your caught eating dinner with a friend they assume your messing with each other so quit reading that media gossip sh** and pick up a mf book!

P.S Don’t be jelouse because she had Tyrese and you didn’t!

Niklaus October 18, 2011 at 8:35 am

rly roflmao here. latino is a european culture same as anglo or slavic or nordic or germanic. latino only means latin in spanish. it has nothing to do with latin america. first latins that originated and spread their culture were romans. so if it werent for them we wouldnt have this name for latin america today. plain and simple. no one says that only whites can claim that title. but same as black US americans are part of anglo culture and have english names doesnt make them english theyre still considered of african descent. saying u are latino and huspanic and being 100% black is a bit out of reach.

Jerry302 May 10, 2012 at 6:57 pm

Latin is neither white, brown, or black dumbass. It’s a culture not a race. Hispanic, Caucasian, Asian, Black, etc… are races. Yes she is a WHITE latin girl. Fun fact. Why? She has white skin, and her hair is naturally blonde with the white skin to top it off. She looks very white. A hot white girl no doubt about that, they are a minority just like every race hot girls are a minority. And yes she is mixed but her features tend to be more white like her SKIN for example. Obama’s black because he has black skin, although TECHNICALLY he is considered mixed when it comes to his “race.” : D But he looks black. Just like Sophia looks white.

anakaterina October 14, 2013 at 1:50 pm

Latinos can be white ! Latino isn’t a race, stupid

joros July 1, 2011 at 6:18 pm

“columbian” is wrong. “colombian” is the correct denonym

Lola April 28, 2011 at 3:50 pm

I agree that she’s slightly overrated, but she is pretty.

jackie April 28, 2011 at 11:23 am

omg you must be blind, this woman is beautiful!

ProudFilipina March 27, 2011 at 3:04 am

i love her!

rafael July 1, 2011 at 6:54 pm

its too bad she has to perform in brown face and dye her hair to look like a hollywood hispanic and not what the majority of hispanics look like

no July 1, 2011 at 7:18 pm

She’s naturally a brunette dude. But I agree she has to upkeep her tan to fit Hollywood’s perception of what a Hispanic should look like.

rafael July 1, 2011 at 7:26 pm

no she is naturally dirt blonde,i know that for a fact,she started doing soda commercials in columbia,check out those pics she was even hotter then

anakaterina October 14, 2013 at 1:51 pm

The majority of hispanics aren’t white, moron

DGB January 24, 2011 at 8:33 pm

Colombian is her nationality, not her ethnicity. Quite a beautiful lady, however.

jackie April 28, 2011 at 11:24 am

WTF April 29, 2011 at 3:48 am

rafael July 1, 2011 at 7:36 pm

no July 1, 2011 at 7:40 pm

whatever floats your boat.. but i agree i would jump her bones, blonde or brunette ;)

rafael July 1, 2011 at 7:43 pm

see now we agree

phillygurl July 21, 2011 at 9:51 am

It is well know that she dated Tyrese and Craig David and John Singleton (set of Four Brothers). Just google it. I found this out because I am obsessed with Tyrese and I saw info on their albeit brief relationship.

wtf December 7, 2011 at 8:04 pm

Once again..i must point out how fugly and miserable you are, why do you give a fuck about who she dates? The difference between you and her is that she dosent even know you exist yet you still cut her down to make your lard ass feel better haha you gotta be the most miserable cow to graze your fields.
