Modern Family co-star Sofia Vergara says she supports President Barack Obama's endorsement of gay marriage.

The 39-year-old Vergara plays Gloria Pritchett on the ABC Wednesday night comedy Modern Family, which prominently features a gay couple, Mitchell and Cameron, played by Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Eric Stonestreet, respectively, who are raising an adoptive daughter. In the show's final season 3 episode, Mitchell and Cameron agree to table their search to adopt a boy.

In a interview with film critic Maria Salas, Vergara, a Colombian native, was asked her thoughts on Obama's recently completed “evolution” on gay marriage.

“I believe that it's very important to accept the entire world as they are,” she said. “The important thing is that we should all be happy. And that which makes a person happy, well, we should all support and help him or her achieve that.”

Before landing stateside, Vergara was widely known for co-hosting two television shows for the Spanish language television network Univision in the late 1990s. She can currently be seen in the film The Three Stooges.
