No one will ever accuse my future wife, Sofia Vergara, of taking herself too seriously. In a recent appearance on “The Tonight Show,” host Jimmy Fallon persuaded the Colombian actor to inhale from a helium-filled balloon. Vergara briefly hesitated, asking, “Is this legal to inhale?” Then of course she took the challenge like a champ. After a healthy hit of helium, the 44-year-old actress was barely able to squeak out a hilariously high pitched “My name is…” before breaking into a fit of laughter, along with Fallon and the entire audience.
She might be the highest paid actress on television, but that doesn’t mean she’s afraid to make her self the butt of the joke.
The helium gag has always been a fan favorite, especially because it takes very distinct voices to new levels of hilarity.
Not every guest on The Tonight Show has shown the same level of enthusiasm as Vergara.
Morgan Freeman, who has one of the most distinctive voices on the planet, was a bit apprehensive when he tried it, but it was worth it.
