In the past few days, some rumors emerged indicating that famous actress Sofia Vergara was actually one of the women who accused Bill Cosby of abuse. However, it seems that the rumors were dismissed.
The rumor that Sofia might be one of Bill Cosby’s victims first emerged at a Spanish-language radio show. “A video of an interview of Bill Cosby and a young Sofia Vergara came out. It’s rumored if she could’ve been one of his victims,” the radio show said. The Modern Family star quickly responded to the rumor and asked everyone to stop inventing things, dismissing the claims.
The video to which the radio station was referring dates back to 2003 and it actually is an interview with Sofia, at the time when Bill Cosby was guest hosting for David Letterman. Sofia was in the show to promote one of her first famous movies, Chasing Papi. The video is without a doubt very interesting.
“Men look at you, and they think only of sin. What you have on tonight is wonderful. This is just wonderful. When you walking out, many people became attentive,” Cosby says to Sofia during the interview. “You make me feel young again, you make me feel excited,” he added.
Sofia looked quite uncomfortable with the comments, but she managed to laugh off the attention received from Cosby, while the famous comedian seemed to exaggerate with the comments. Sofia continued to joke and she managed to save the interview after all.
“Respect people. Stop inventing nonsense,” Sofia shared on her Twitter, in Spanish, after the rumor emerged. So, it seems that the Modern Family actress has nothing to blame Cosby for. Well, this might be the case for Sofia, but more than 50 other women claimed that they were victims of the popular comedian. These women alleged that Cosby had drugged and sexually assaulted them. Bill Cosby denied the allegations, which have not been proven yet. No criminal charges were filed against the famous comedian, but these cases remain ongoing.
