Late Night: Sofia Vergara gets dirty playing Pictionary
Sometimes it's hard to tell where Sofia Vergara ends and Gloria Pritchett, her "Modern Family" character, begins. Case in point: Vergara's visit to "Late Night" on Thursday, where the actress showed off her less-than-remarkable Pictionary skills, but, of course, did so in an utterly charming and amusing way.
Paired up with one very lucky audience member -- Billy from Nashville -- Vergara was the first contestant to pick a clue. Unfortunately for her, that clue happened to be "dog catcher."
"What is this?" she asked. "I don't even know what that is in English."
Host Jimmy Fallon offered some help, but she shooed him away, "Nooo. Then you win."
Despite not fully comprehending the clue, the Colombian-born Vergara gamely started drawing -- or, as she put it, "I paint it fast." And paint it fast she did, confusing poor Billy with a drawing of what appeared to be a self-portrait. Her decidedly unique interpretation of "dog catcher" didn't score her team any points, but it did garner a huge response from the audience. The sting of defeat was quickly forgotten in the next round, when Vergara correctly guessed "ATM machine," celebrating her triumph with a boastful little dance.
Vergara, who's set to host "SNL" this weekend, might not be the world's greatest Pictionary player, but something tells Billy didn't mind all that much.
