Sofía Vergara

Sofia Vergara, the Colombian former Univision TV host who became famous in Latin America for her flirty personality, voluptuous physique and Latin lovers, never intended to be a scene-stealing funny girl on American TV. But that's exactly what she is on ABC's new hit comedy Modern Family. Sofia is the new hot Latina that is coming with the movie New Year’s Eve.

Colin Farrell

When Irish actor Colin Farrell, 37, first arrived in America 14 years ago, he earned the respect of such A-list directors as Steven Spielberg and Terrence Malick. But at the same time he got a reputation for drinking and being a playboy, and as he explains in this interview being a father of two has gained perspective on his libidinous past and emerged as one of the finest actors working today. He was heartbreaking as P. L. Travers’ alcoholic father in Saving Mr. Banks, and in Winter’s Tale, a sweeping love story about a pull so strong it leads a man to time-travel a hundred years into the future to fulfill his destiny, the very definition of a romantic hero. With his little Spanish he confesses he travels frequently to our country as he is in love with the city of Seville
