Bowen: Vergara deserves Manganiello

Julie Bowen thinks Sofia Vergara “deserves” to date hunky actor Joe Manganiello.

The women have starred together on TV comedy Modern Family for several years.

Sofia, 42, is said to be romancing True Blood star Joe, 37, and Julie is convinced the couple might be a match made in heaven.

“I like it. I’m all for it,” she told Extra. “I saw that picture of them at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner, where he was staring at her booty with such love and respect, and that was before. You just know that man will worship at her feet, and he should. She deserves it. He’s gorgeous.”

According to Julie, who is currently promoting new animation comedy Planes: Fire & Rescue, Sofia hasn’t spoken much about her new romance with Joe.

But she suspects the stunning Colombian actress will brush off the affair if the subject comes up in the future.

“She always plays things off like, ‘Oh please, whatever, you know, I am beautiful, he is beautiful…’ She didn’t actually say that but that’s the way I’m imagining it,” Julie joked.

Sofia split from her fiancé Nick Loeb in May, following a stormy few years together. Sofia is rumored to have met Joe at the White House Correspondents Dinner in May, which she attended with Nick.

It’s claimed the Magic Mike actor visited Sofia in Louisiana over Fourth of July weekend, where she is currently shooting Don’t Mess With Texas with Reese Witherspoon.

Joe, who has been linked with Bridget Peters and Audra Marie in the past, told People previously that she was his ideal woman.

“Girls that do squats. I love a butt. Sofia Vergara, that’s it,” the Magic Mike star said. “She’s got that Latin thing going. She’s got the butt, she’s got curves, she’s got a beautiful face, beautiful hair, just gorgeous. And she’s feisty!”
