Sofia Vergara is the highest paid TV actress in Hollywood, in part thanks to her comedic stylings and effervescent charisma.

But sometimes, even the professionals miss the mark, as evidenced by Vergara’s speech at the Golden Globes.

She was enlisted to introduce Sylvester Stallone’s three teenage daughters, in a time honoured Golden Globe tradition, whereby the children of a legendary actor take the spotlight

Vergara was charged with a simple task: Introduce the Stallone daughters, 14-year-old Scarlet, 18-year-old Sistine and Sophia, 20.

In an attempt at humour, Vergara played up her accent and fumbled over the word ‘annual’ in her address to the audience.

Instead she replaced the word with a crude sexual reference, saying:

Good evening. The Hollywood Foreign Press Association has an anal tradition… I didn’t mean anal, I mean, they have an anus tradition

They have a tradition that they do every year of choosing a second generation to assist in the presentation of the award to fulfil the duties of Miss Golden Globes.

Tonight we have the three beautiful daughters of Sylvester Stallone and Jennifer Flavin, Scarlet, Sistine and Sophia Stallone.

We’re not sure what Sylvester – who later presented the final award of the evening – thought of the joke.

But Vergara must be brave to take on Rocky Balboa himself.

Although the introduction prompted some giggles from the star-studded crowd – who were probably grateful for some cheap, light relief from Meryl Streep’s politically-motivated speech – Twitter was not happy with the 44-year-old Columbian-American actress.

Others were annoyed at the scripted joke, which not only used sexually explicit humour with regards to an underage girl, but actually mocked Vergara’s heritage too.

Luckily, Vergara herself seemed to buy into the humour of the bit.

Posting a photograph to Instagram, she wrote, ‘I look lonely back stage but I was just trying to come up with my an*s joke…’

Rather than making a good joke, it seems Vergara’s script writers have only served to make an ass out of the brilliant actress.

What a bummer.
