She’s usually a fixture on the red carpet and, at the same time, one of the best dressed ladies on the circuit, for which reason she’s always a sight for sore eyes. However, Sofia Vergara was notably absent at the Oscars 2013 due to a mysterious illness.

As the most important awards show of the year kicked off, rumors started making the rounds that Sofia had been hospitalized and, consequently, would be out of the ceremony.

Indeed, she did not attend the Oscars but not because she was in hospital suffering from some mysterious illness: Sofia has the flu, the New York Post confirms.

“She came down with a nasty case of flu and had to cancel all plans for Oscar weekend,” a source tells the e-zine, adding that “the star was recovering at home in LA, where she planned to watch the show.”
