Julie Bowen recently told Stylist magazine that she admired her "Modern family" co-star Sofia Vergara for being able to be "comfortable with herself," and exuding femininity. Headlines quickly reported the comments in the context of either "Julie Bowen has a girl crush on Sofia Vergara," or "Julie Bowen is jealous of Sofia Vergara."
Asked about her remarks by the Los Angeles Times at a Mommy & Me Soiree for Baby Buggy event this week, Bowen clarified her statements: "I sort of worship Sofia, though. It's more of like ... a girl crush I feel like you would have on somebody you don't know, like Katy Perry or something, somebody like far away," she said. "But Sofia, I know and see all the time."
