Sofia Vergara’s illness kept her from attending the 2013 Oscars on Sunday. The 40-year-old "Modern Family" star reportedly had the flu and decided to stay home.
There are rumors that Vergara was hospitalized with the illness, but on Sunday night, the actress tweeted a picture of herself lying in bed. She tweeted, "Watching the Oscars at home so I don’t give everyone the flu haha.”
Her radiant personality and beauty were surely missed at the Academy Awards this year, but it's likely her fellow actors and actresses appreciated the fact that she stayed home instead of spreading the flu at the awards show.
The flu usually comes on fast, so it seems the Sofia Vergara's illness started over the weekend. On Friday, the New York Post reported that Vergara and her fiance, Nick Lobe, were out at the Boa Steakhouse in West Hollywood and she "beamed" as Lobe escorted her to a car.
There are several media reports, including one from Yahoo, that indicates Vergara is going to be hospitalized for an upcoming operation, but that cannot be confirmed.
