Sofia in the summer! Sofia Vergara and her hubby, Joe Manganiello, are loving the summertime in New York City. The couple enjoyed a private SiriusXM Gun N’ Roses concert in Harlem last week and on Sunday they had a big day out.
Vergara, 45, who is currently starring as the voice of the flamenco dancer emoji in the new Emoji Movie, attended the film’s premiere.
For the red carpet, she rocked a navy lace dress with a flared-out bottom, which featured some sexy red lining. She spoke with ET about her role in the new animated film and how she came to play Flamenca.
“Who who else is gonna do that than me?” she quipped. “But, you know, what it was, like, a very easy thing for me to do. I just did like half hour on a on a recording booth, it's a very, very small role. It was just, like, a little fun thing that they wrote into the movie so I was able to do it when I was doing Modern Family, so it was it was good.”
Other stars who voice emojis include James Corden, Anna Faris, Maya Rudolph, Christina Aguilera, Patrick Stewart, and Rachael Ray.
Vergara was later spotted out with Manganiello, 40, walking around the streets of Manhattan and even grabbing some ice cream.
The Modern Family star shared a shot to Instagram, writing, “We [love] NY!!”
