Sofia Vergara fulfils pledge to run nude down Sunset Blvd. after Emmy win
Washington: Colombian actress Sofia Vergara has revealed that she has fulfilled her pledge to run nude in Hollywood should sitcom ‘Modern Family’ win an Emmy.
The team behind the hit ABC comedy had through an ad stated in July that Vergara, 38, would “run naked down Sunset Blvd.” if the show won the outstanding comedy award at the Emmys on August 29.
They also added in a disclaimer that the “cast member may change without notice”, but the actress says that she is not one to back down and has already done the run.
“Listen, I’m not afraid of anything. I’m Colombian,” People magazine quoted her as telling Access Hollywood.
“Yes, I mean, I’m fast. I run fast. They zipped me and they sent me to do press,” she said.
Vergara’s co-star Julie Bowen has backed her story.
“When we went back to the press room, she had made a left turn and we all made a right turn. So for about 20 minutes, she was missing,” she said.
When she returned, Bowen asked her where she had been, and Vergara replied that she went to run nude down Sunset Boulevard.
“‘No one was there. So I did it. It’s over … No one said I had to do it at a certain time’,” Bowen said Vergara told her.
