Sofia Vergara certainly has a very distinct voice, and one of her co-stars has a habit of emulating it! "Modern Family" star Julie Bowen talked to E!'s Ryan Seacrest on the Emmy red carpet this afternoon and explained that she and Vergara always consult on what color they're wearing to the award ceremony. The actress imitated her Colombian co-star's signature accent when explaining this year's phone call, "Apparently it's a turquoise, but in her translation it's, 'You know it's like a blue, but a green, you know, it's a color.'" Despite the language barrier, Julie then knew her yellow gown would not match Vergara's choice. "I just don't want to stand next to her in the same color," she explained.

It's not the first time Bowen has channeled the exotic accent. Julie also took to "Jimmy Kimmel Live" earlier this week and attempted to re-create a scene at Sofia's birthday party last year, where the Colombian imitated white people dancing and explained the difference between American and Colombian moves. Bowen verified Vergara's statement, saying that after she spent time there she realized it was true.

The two actresses have a friendly rivalry going, as they were both nominated for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series. Bowen came out on top, winning the award for the second consecutive year. "Modern Family" is also up for Outstanding Comedy Series.
