She might be the highest paid actress on TV, but there’s more to Sofía Vergara than playing Gloria on Modern Family or being the lucky Mrs. Joe Manganiello. For one, she has a large family — two sisters and a brother, to be exact. Her sisters are also in the entertainment industry, and yes, in case you’re wondering if they’re as gorgeous as she is, they are. Watch the video below to learn more about her look-alike sisters.
Although Sandra is quickly building her own career alongside her big sis, the 29-year-old doesn’t credit her success to her famous sibling. “I did everything on my own, but it helps [being her sister] because it’s name recognition,” she said in 2011. “She is beloved by the public, and so being related to someone who is so dear is a good thing. It wouldn’t be the case if my sister was Lindsay Lohan.”
Although her sisters are doing fine in their respective careers, things aren’t doing so great for her brother, Julio. In 2011, he was deported after being arrested more than 30 times for drug-related charges. Sofía has been honest and candid about the ongoing hardships with her brother. “To see somebody dying over 10 years, little by little, that’s the worst punishment,” she told Parade magazine. She also has another brother, Rafael, who was tragically murdered in 1998. “I was devastated,” Sofía has said. Thankfully, Sofía and the rest of the Vergara family have managed to turn their tragedy into success.
