Colombian actress Sofia Vergara was selected by prestigious entertainment magazine Variety as one of the 50 Women Changing Hollywood.
Vergara has had a banner year, with a hit TV show (Modern Family), a Emmy nod and a role in the blockbuster film adaptation of The Smurfs. She is joined by Diane Lane, Jennifer Garner, Eva Mendes and Amy Adams in receiving this special distinction—but Vergara was selected for the cover.

They have changed the perceptions of the business and have re-written the path to success. These women serve as encouraging high-profile inspiration to all people of different social classes." The glossy honored the women at the 2nd annual Power of Women luncheon held in Beverly Hills, California.
