Colombian-American actress Sofia Vergara, one of the judges of the hit talent competition America's Got Talent, is now following Catriona Gray on image-sharing app Instagram.
Cornerstone Entertainment, the agency that handles Catriona's career, shared the news on its social media pages on Monday, July 12.
However, in the comments section of their post, a fan page dedicated to the Filipina beauty queen pointed out that Sofia has been following her on Instagram since 2019.
Another fan confirmed this, and noted that aside from Sofia, other Hollywood celebrities, including supermodels Miranda Kerr and Tyra Banks, also follow Catriona on the platform.
The netizen added: "I hope Catriona and Cornerstone go global and expand sila internationally. Imagine if Catriona makes it big sa Hollywood! I believe in her kasi she has the talent and charisma to back it up."
Catriona, who recently hosted the 2021 Binibining Pilipinas grand coronation night, is one of the most-followed Filipino personalities on Instagram. Currently, she has more than 12.1 million followers on the platform.
The 27-year-old beauty queen rose to fame after winning the Miss Universe pageant back in 2018, making her the fourth Filipina to bring home the coveted crown.
Shortly after her victory, top fashion magazine Vogue, through its online website, featured Catriona, specifically her signature "lava walk", which it described as a "runway stomp worthy of fashion month".
Aside from the written feature, Catriona also had her own episode of Vogue's popular online segment "Beauty Secrets" on YouTube. She is the second Filipina to appear on the segment, after Victoria's Secret model Kelsey Merritt.
