Hyland: Romance needs honesty

Sarah Hyland

Sarah Hyland thinks being “real and honest” is important in a relationship.

The Modern Family star has been with her actor boyfriend Matt Prokop for three years.

Despite their busy schedules they make it work and Sarah, 22, revealed their secret.

“We’re both real and honest with each other and since we’re both actors we both understand what it’s like to be in the business and what comes along with it,” she explained to the British edition of OK! magazine.

“Every couple gets into fights, but it’s what happens after the fight that brings you together. When you realize you’ve got to work on stuff!”

Sarah and Matt, 23, try to make as much time as possible for each other, which is helped by the fact they live together.

They might be a great couple now, but it wasn’t love at first sight for the pair.

“I thought he was really cute when I first met him, but it was at an audition and I was like, ‘I’m not here to focus on meeting guys,’ I wanted to focus on getting the job,” she remembered.

“He didn’t think he was going to get the role and he was like, ‘I may as well take advantage of the situation and meet girls here instead.’ Matt and I were friends for a year and a half before we started dating and I think that’s best.”
