Sofia Vergara on Joe Manganiello's Magic Mike XXL Moves: "It Was Fun to See Him Prepare"
Magic Mike XXL doesn't hit theaters until July 2015, but actress Sofia Vergara got an up-close-and-personal sneak preview of the eagerly anticipated sequel. That's because her boyfriend Joe Manganiello is reprising his role for the follow-up and, as she told Conan O'Brien during her appearance on Conan on Tuesday, "It was fun to see him prepare." (O'Brien, as he reminded her, also got to check out his famous moves during his last visit to the show.)
The Modern Family star—who looked stunning in a blue dress, paired with jewelry from her own line with Kay Jewelers—said that her beau "moves perfectly." She noted, "I don't have to give him any pointers."
While Vergara said she found Manganiello's Magic Mike moves surprising, what she learned the most was that "It's dangerous to be a stripper!" Turns out, after performing one particularly crazy stripper routine during filming, Manganiello injured his arm. As Vergara put it, "I thought it was just fun and games, but no."
Watch the full, hilarious conversation below, including Vergara discussing her own sexy moves on the dance floor with her Modern Family co-star Jesse Tyler Ferguson's husband Justin Mikita.
