‘Teen Choice Awards’: Sarah Hyland Co-Hosts With Tyler Posey
Sarah Hyland is bringing the laughs from TV to the stage! The Modern Family actress, 23, is co-hosting the Teen Choice Awards with Teen Wolf hottie Tyler Posey, 22, and she can’t wait to reunite with her good bud on stage — the two both starred in Scary Movie 5.
“He got to be a torso with all his limbs cut off and I cut my tongue in half. So we had a lot of fun that day,” jokes Sarah about the last project she and Tyler worked on together — we have a feeling this time around will be less gruesome, but just as funny.
“Hopefully, I won’t put my foot in my mouth!” Sarah exclusively tells HollywoodLife.com about emceeing the big show.
You can’t ask for a much better co-host than Tyler, but Sarah is also amped to see another celeb attending the TCAs: Taylor Swift!
“I’m really excited I get to see my friend Taylor because she lives in New York and I never get to see her,” Sarah tells us. And what do they love to do together in their girl time (not at star-studded award shows)? Eat!
Sarah Hyland: I Get To Stare At ‘Pretty People’
As if having your best friend Taylor in the audience isn’t enough, Sarah can’t wait to see the sea of celebs in the crowd — and we don’t blame her! “I think being on the stage and looking out into the audience will be really awesome because there will be a bunch of pretty people that I get to stare at,” Sarah tells HollywoodLife.com, adding that actor Ansel Elgort probably had the biggest breakout year in the teen scene, after The Fault In Our Stars.
As for entertainment during the show, she’s most excited to watch MAGIC!‘s performance.
“I’m really to see MAGIC! to perform,” the actress admits. “I first heard the song ‘Rude’ in Australia when we were filming the Modern Family episode, and then it came to the States a couple months later. So I’m really excited to see that. And then I love ‘Wiggle’ by Jason Derulo. I always enjoy the dancing during that song.”
Demi Lovato, Rita Ora and Rixton are also performing, and Sarah, herself, is among the many nominees of the night — she’s in the running for Choice TV Female Scene Stealer for her work on Modern Family, which is also nominated again for Outstanding Comedy at the 2014 Emmy Awards.
If Sarah wins at Teen Choice, how will she celebrate? She says she’ll learn to surf! (For those of you who don’t get it, the TCA awards are real-sized surfboards.)
