Julie Bowen is dishing about her longtime costar and friend Sofia Vergara and her relationship with fiance, Joe Manganiello. In fact, Julie revealed that their chemistry is so hot it borders on ‘primal’!
Julie Bowen, 45, has starred alongside Sofia Vergara, 43, on Modern Family going on seven seasons now, so it’s safe to say she knows the fiery diva pretty well. Apparently, that includes the intimacies of her relationship with her fiance Joe Manganiello, 38! At the Variety and Women in Film’s Emmy Nominee Celebration on Sept. 19, Julie chatted about why she knows Joe is the right guy for Sofia and, believe it or not, she likened Joe to a ‘caveman’! No, seriously.
“He’s tough,” Julie told reporters when we asked how she knows Joe will be the perfect hubby for Sofia. “He is like a cave man with her. It’s sexy. I love it. He’s like [grunting noise]. She is like this strong [woman] and calling the shots all the time and then you see them together and there’s a part of her that kind of melts. It warms your heart to see that because it’s not all the time but you can see there’s an aspect to this relationship that is very, how shall we say, primal.”
So, with Sofia and Joe’s nuptials just around the corner, is Julie setting up an on-set wedding shower for Sofia or what? “I should,” she said. “But what do you do? You’re like, ‘Oh, Sofia, what do you want for your wedding shower?’ She’s going to be like, ‘I want a toaster and some plates.’ No. She has a beautiful new house. Her to-be husband is a minor deity or a major deity. But I should, shouldn’t I? I should do that. Maybe there’s a charity she’s into. You probably know better than I do. Something like poor, unfortunate supermodels. She’s very involved with charities back in Colombia for kids and education.”
What do you think of Julie calling Sofia’s relationship ‘”primal”?
