Sofia Vergara Defends Ed O'Neill on Emmy Misunderstanding


Ed O'Neill, Sofia Vergara


'He didn't mean it like that,' Vergara who plays his on-screen wife on 'Modern Family' explained about the comments he made that looks like he was against Jane Lynch.

Actress Sofia Vergara has come to the defense of Ed O'Neill following his controversial comments about Jane Lynch's Emmy Award win, insisting her "Modern Family" co-star's words have been misinterpreted.

O'Neill hit the headlines earlier this week after appearing to question whether the "Glee" star deserved her trophy for Outstanding Supporting Actress for her portrayal of acid-tongued Sue Sylvester on the hit musical TV series in August. The veteran actor claimed Lynch played a "one-note character", while he hailed Vergara as "so funny", adding, "I don't think people realize how hilarious she is. She's so sharp with her wit, it's amazing."

But the Colombian beauty has spoken out to put a stop to the controversy and she's adamant her on-screen husband O'Neill simply used the wrong choice of words to express his feelings about the Emmys.

Vergara tells U.S. news show Access Hollywood, "He didn't mean it like that. I know Ed and of course he loves me and adores me and I'm so happy that he thinks I deserve an Emmy, but he didn't say it like Jane didn't deserve it and I did."

"He said to me, 'What I was trying to say was that I would have loved for you to get it, that your character, you know, deserves an Emmy', but he was not making her (Lynch) less than me. I mean, he's not crazy!"
