Ty Burrell says his co-star Sofia Vergara gets a “disturbing amount” of fan mail from prisoners.
The pair appear in the award-winning US TV show Modern Family. Sofia has attracted hordes of admirers from all over the world with her curvy figure and stunning looks. Ty admits this has also led to some unwanted attention.
“I just get people seeing if I‘m available for birthday parties,” he told the may issue of UK magazine Glamour when asked if he gets any weird fan mail. “Julie [Bowen] and Sofia get a disturbing amount from prison, but I’m very low on the prison list.”
In Modern Family, Ty plays hapless father Phil Dunphy, while Sofia is his mother-in-law Gloria.
Phil is often seen looking mesmerised by sexy Gloria – but Ty insists that his wife in real life understands it is just for the cameras.
“my wife is really good friends with Julie Bowen, who plays Claire, and they are both big admirers of Sofia’s too. Plus, because it’s fictional, my wife can laugh, but if she saw me fumbling over a Colombian woman in the street, it might be a different story,” he quipped.
Ty is full of praise for Sofia’s acting skills. he says that she has excellent comedic timing and is far more intelligent that her character in Modern Family.
“She’s so good at making fun of herself. And the thing is, there’s nothing ditzy about her at all – she’s really sharp,” he added.

Despite losing the Golden Globe to Jessica Lang for “Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy” Sofía Vergara was still the talk of the night.
From the moment she arrived on the red carpet, jaws were hanging and twitter went wild with comments about her stunning midnight blue strapless gown.
“I’m wearing Vera Wang and Harry Winston jewelry,” a smiling Vergara told NBC’s Carson Daily on the red carpet. “I feel like five million bucks.”
But it was the undergarment that she did not wear to the Golden Globes that made headlines on social media websites.
“I’m not wearing anything,” Vergara told ABC News backstage. “For what, I don’t need it.”
This isn’t the first time Vergara has left everyone speechless. She also dazzled last year as she took the Emmy Awards by storm in a Vera Wang fire-red gown certainly aimed to drop jaws.
The “Modern Family” actress praised her native Colombia for the whopping earrings and accessories she sported along with her figure flattering ensemble.
“Everything that comes from Colombia is huge,” Entertainment outlet Zap 2 it quoted the star saying on the red carpet prior to the telecast.
Sofia Works Hard to look Good
Vergara also had the undivided attention of the audience when she and her “Modern Family” won the Golden Globe for “Best TV Series” (Comedy or Musical) presented to them by Puss in Boots stars Antonio Banderas and Salma Hayek.
Besides looking like ‘five million bucks’ Vergara also stole the show during Modern Family’s acceptance speech in which she decided to jokingly give her thanks in Spanish on behalf of the cast.
“Thank you Antonio, thank you Salma,” Vergara said. “Because this is an international prize we will be receiving it in two languages,” said Vergara with an exaggerated Colombian accent.
“On behalf of Modern Family we thank the Foreign Press for this great honor,” she continued in Spanish as the crowd laughed.
Like Vergara, Banderas and Hayek had all eyes on them for their elegant ensembles.
“Salma Hayek and Antonio Banderas are extremely gorgeous specimens,” said Golden Globe host Ricky Gervais as he introduced the actors.
He then poked fun at Banderas for not understanding him when he talks in Spanish.
Banderas then took the podium and began jokingly ranting at Gervais in Spanish.
The night carried on as re-runs of Vergara’s newly debuted Pepsi commercial aired in between takes followed by commercials from Jennifer Lopez and Eva Longoria.

A thirsty Vergara is seen at a chic nightclub chasing a cold Pepsi held by a waiter on a platter, but she is interrupted as multiple men take her on the dance floor.
“It’s a lot of fun,” Vergara told Bader TV during the shooting. “A lot of dancing!”
After the commercial, Vergara got busy on the dance floor dancing Salsa with the crew.
