| Filed under: TV NewsSofia Vergara

Sofia Vergara says she doesn't care about being seen as a stereotype.

Sofia Vergara has no qualms about being seen as a stereotype.

In a new interview with Hola!USA magazine, the Modern Family star addresses complaints that have dogged her portrayal of Gloria Pritchett on the popular show.

Namely, that her character is too much of a Latina stereotype.

She said:

"What's wrong with being a stereotype?. Gloria's character is inspired by my mom and my aunt. They are both Latin women who grew up in Colombia, like me. They love color, prints and shoes."

Sofia also said that she gets upset when other "Latinos complain about Gloria," saying:

"I am grateful for the opportunity because the gringos have let me in with this strong accent I have. Eight years ago nobody had an accent like this on television."

Critics of the character's portrayal have pointed out that there is a vast difference between being a stereotype and having some stereotypical traits, and that Sofia goes too far in the former direction.

They believe this makes people of other ethnic groups view Latinos as if they are all the same.

Others have suggested that her character is too one-note, and doesn't have the nuances of a truly good, well-rounded character.

But what do YOU think of Sofia's interpretation of Gloria, Perezcious readers???
