The model and TV personality speaks with ET on the 'America's Got Talent' season 19 red carpet in Pasadena, California.

Heidi Klum feels there was a role just waiting for her in Sofia Vergara's Netflix crime drama mini-series, Griselda.

The model and TV personality was all smiles on the America's Got Talent red carpet event on Tuesday at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium in  Pasadena, California, and she spoke with ET about her friendship with her fellow judge.

While Klum said she was really happy for Vergara over the success of Griselda, she also had a bit of a bone to pick about a possible missed casting opportunity.

"I was upset because I was like, 'Why couldn't I have been one of your cousins?' I could have been a cousin that doesn't speak, because obviously I don't speak Spanish," she said with a laugh. "But I could have just been, you know, not speaking! I was upset."

"I could have also been one of those gorgeous girls! I would have loved to. But she said, 'Nein,'" Klum quipped.

In Griselda, Vergara stars as infamous drug kingpin Griselda Blanco, known as the cocaine godmother, in a well-received six-episode miniseries that debuted on Netflix in January.

While they didn't act together in Griselda, the pair will be teaming up again for the upcoming season of America's Got Talent.

Klum says that she and her fellow judges also spend quite a bit of time together off the set.

"I mean, we all also do other things -- so, you know, sometimes when I'm not here I do a lot of other shows... I have a lot of kids, too. So I wish I can spend more time with [my co-judges]. But I feel like we do see each other a fair amount," Klum told ET. "I always have like dinners with Sofia or go to her house and, you know, we do, like, girly things together."

ET also spoke with Vergara, who gushed over getting to share her time with Klum during the long production days, and helping each other get their looks just right.

"We look at each other and it's like, 'You need more lipstick,' or, 'Your hair is not right.' We're always taking care of each other," Vergara shared. "I love that."

"We're always trying to have fun in between, 'cause you go crazy on the set for too many hours," she added.

Season 19 of America's Got Talent premieres May 28 at 8 p.m. ET on NBC.
