Vergara, who plays the main character, shared that director André Baiz became her guiding force as she embraced the role, jokingly mentioning, "I didn’t know anything. He taught me how to smoke. He taught me how to do cocaine. He taught me a lot."
The audience erupted into laughter, and host Jimmy Fallon interjected cautiously, "Alright, hold on, hold on."
Unaware of the reaction, Vergara continued, emphasizing the learning experience at the age of 51: "It was amazing because I was 51 years old and I didn’t even know how to, you know, how to light a cigarette. I’ve never done cocaine. So it’s like, it was amazing. It was like, a great experience."
The audience laughed again, prompting Vergara to realize the need to explain what she meant in her comments.
She quickly clarified, "The cocaine that I did was fake. But I had to pretend. The cigarettes are also fake. Everything was, it’s fake. But the acting was real."
Vergara's humorous nature extended beyond her project discussion to her relationship with former Modern Family castmates.
She mentioned staying connected through chats, teasing Ed O’Neill, her onscreen husband, for his struggles with texting.
"He’s not good with the texting. We joke about something or we say something and he reacts like 26 weeks later. And then nobody knows what he’s talking about," she stated.
When Fallon inquired about a potential reboot, Vergara emphasized that it had only been four years, suggesting they might need a bit more time before considering it.
