Julie Bowen Envies Sofia Vergara

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Award Shows, Comedy, Prime Time, ABC, Features,

Sofia Vergara and Julie BowenJulie Bowen is jealous of Sofia Vergara. The Modern Family actress is envious of her co-star's natural grace and femininity, and admits she feels like a tomboy next to the super confident and seductive Latina star.

"Sofia is just so comfortable with herself. She knows who she is and she has accepted it full. I've always felt like I've straddled this line between being a tomboy and I guess if you dress me up just right and put on the right bra I can sort of look girly, but I always feel like I'm playing dress up. Sofia's one of the first women I've spent a lot of time with who's just so female and so completely at ease with herself and the power that comes with that and the money she's made with it," she explained.

During awards season, the cast members all submit themselves for the Best Supporting Actor and Actress categories instead of Leading, and Julie confessed she was devastated when she won in 2012 and Sofia didn't. "When I won the Emmy the first year, I came over to her and was about to cry because I thought she should have it and she said, 'Now you listen to me, you do not apologise for this, this is yours, you take it. Next year its mine, but now it's yours.' I love that person," she said.

Modern Family Sweeps Board at Emmys

The Modern Family cast at the Emmys

Modern Family swept the board at the Emmy Awards last night winning four prizes. The sitcom took home the top Comedy Series prize as well as gongs for Supporting Actress and Supporting Actor in a Comedy for Julie Bowen and Eric Stonestreet, while the ABC show's helmer Steven Levitan won the Director award.

Psychological thriller Homeland upstaged some of the more established programs by winning four drama series honors including the main prize for the category and Series Actor and Actress in a Drama prizes for Damian Lewis and Claire Danes, respectively. Damian introduced himself to the audience as "one of those pesky Brits" and later admitted he thought Breaking Bad star Bryan Cranston, who has won the accolade three times, would be victorious in the category again this year.
