If you didn’t already know this, it may blow your mind: Sofia Vergara is a natural blonde!

As proof, the voluptuous, Colombian-born Modern Family star posted a throwback photo of herself when she was a little girl with light-colored hair.

Haja me in Barranquilla during carnaval,” she tweeted on January 10, along with the snap below.

Sofia has explained that she dyes her hair dark brown to look more Latina... and less Pamela Anderson. 

“I’m a natural blond,” Sofia revealed in Self magazine’s October 2010 issue (via JustJared), “but when I started acting, I would go to auditions and they didn’t know where to put me because I was voluptuous and had the accent — but I had blond hair. [...] They thought every Latin person looks like Salma Hayek. The moment I dyed my hair dark, it was, ‘Oh, she’s the hot Latin girl.’ I loved it. I’d always felt a little ‘too much’ as a blonde, like a big-mouth version of Pamela Anderson. Being brunette toned me down a bit.”
