It all began when the Modern Family star, 41, and show host, 46, read mean Internet comments about themselves, aloud to each other on Wednesday’s Jimmy Kimmel Live. The web insults were light at first — “I hate Jimmy Kimmel. He has squinty eyes and a gape mouth that never really closes,” read Vergara with an apologetic smile. He responded, “Well, that one I actually agree with.”
He then read off his card, “If only Sofia Vergara was a mute, her voice rings in my ears.” The Colombian-born actress responded, “I’ve been said worse things.” He then read, “Sofia Vergara has an amazing body but the face? Not so much.”
Wearing a body-hugging, sleeveless, bright red dress, TV’s highest-paid actress retorted with attitude: “I find Kimmel to be the most smug, unlikable host in the late night, I don’t see how anyone can stand to watch him,” she said with furor. He followed up with, “Sofia Vergara has a man jaw, LOL it’s just something that annoys me, girl is ugly and has a more annoying voice than Fran Drescher.”
The back-and-forth war reached a crescendo when Kimmel read, “Sofia Vergara, has anyone checked for a penis?” With a slap across Kimmel’s face, Vergara amusingly quipped, “For sure bigger than yours!”
For those wondering, the entire account was staged. Watch the funny clip above!
