Julie Bowen has said her Modern Family co-star Sofia Vergara and her new boyfriend Joe Manganiello are "just too good looking."

The 44-year-old actress, who plays Vergara's stepdaughter on the hit comedy, told Entertainment Tonight Canada of the couple, "You know, it almost is like a genetic explosion and there might not be enough diversity in the gene pool because they are just too good looking."

Bowen added, "I have never met him. I saw him, certainly, and he does not hurt my eyes."
