'Smurfs' Star Sofia Vergara: Katy Perry has the 'Perfect' Voice For Smurfette
By Krista Wick
"Modern Family" bombshell Sofia Vergarawont be hitting the big screen for 'The Smurfs' in the franchise's signature blue, but Vergara has a lot of praise for her animated cast mates, complimenting co-star Katy Perry as "the perfect voice for Smurfette."
Vergara says she grew up watching "The Smurfs" in Columbia, and although she (like many other little girls) always wanted to be Smurfette, she finds Katy Perry to be "adorable" in the previews she's seen so far.
Sofia plays the real-life character of Odile in the big-screen adaptation. Odile is an executive at a cosmetics company which she describes as being "mean and strong" with a goal to ultimately "destroy the Smurfs."
Vergara tells us she's psyched for Global Smurfs Day which happens tomorrow, June 25. "I think it's fantastic," she says of the ritual which will give people the opportunity to don their white pants and caps, and paint themselves blue with fans all over the world for a global, Smurf-tastic event.
Don't miss your chance to participate this Saturday, and make sure to catch 'The Smurfs' when it Smurfs into theatres, July 29.
In the 3-D animated movie, the Smurfs wind up in the human world after their archenemy Gargamel forces the little blue creatures out of their village. Havoc ensues when the Smurfs land in the middle of New York City's Central Park. Neil Patrick Harris ("How I Met Your Mother"), Hank Azaria ("The Simpsons"), and Jayma Mays ("Glee") lend their voices to the family film.
