Softpedia reported on Feb. 26, 2013, the reason behind the mysterious disappearance of Sofia Vergara from the Oscars red-carpet.
She is usually fixated on the red carpet and always one of the best dressed ladies. However she was visibly absent at the Oscars 2013 red carpet owing to a mysterious illness.
While the Academy awards were underway, rumors started floating that the "Modern Family" actress Sofia had been hospitalized and she would not be seen at the Oscars.
The rumor came to be partly true as she indeed missed the event. Though she really missed to attend the Oscars, the reason was certainly not because of being hospitalized. The New York Post confirmed that Sofia has the flu.
A source told the E-zine that Sofia came down with a nasty case of flu. So she had to cancel all plans for Oscar weekend.
The source said that the actress was recovering at her home in LA where she had planned to watch the show.
