Jesse Tyler Ferguson, who plays Mitchell on the hit ABC series “Modern Family,” was a victim of bullying growing up–a moment in his life that he still remembers to this day.

“I left school in the eighth grade and I went to a different school,” he said at the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network’s Respect Awards recently, as reported by E! Online. “It was hard. It was a horrible, horrible experience.”

The openly-gay actor also said that lived in fear everyday. “I’m sure a lot of it was rooted in homophobia. I mean, I was an ‘artistic,’ kid, which was AKA gay. I think a lot of people sensed that I was gay and were terrified of that. I think bullying comes from fear and insecurity.”

Crave Online has an interview with Sofia Vergara, here are some of the hightlights:

CraveOnline: You look amazing. Is there anything you don’t look good in?

Sofia Vergara: Well, I don’t look that good in bathing suits anymore.

CraveOnline: But I’m sure it’s still awesome.

Sofia Vergara: Everything is still up there a little bit. Yeah, I would have to say it’s still awesome.

CraveOnline: How important is it for you to be portraying a mixed-race couple on TV?

Sofia Vergara: It’s fantastic. I hope that this new season of TV shows for all the networks, maybe they’ll try to have another Gloria in their cast or that some Latin actress got a job. That would be fantastic. It’s very difficult. Now, it’s less difficult than ever but it’s still, you cannot get as many roles as a normal American person. So for a black actor I’m sure it’s the same.

CraveOnline: I hear you are going to be in the Smurfs movie. Are you a Smurf?

Sofia Vergara: No, no. I’m an executive, a makeup executive. We filmed already in New York during the spring and it’s coming out next summer. Hank Azaria is Gargamel. He looks unbelievable.

CraveOnline: What do you get to do with the Smurfs?

Sofia Vergara: Nothing really. All my scenes are with Gargamel and Neil Patrick Harris. There are Smurfs out there but I don’t see them so I never really have to talk to them which takes hours, those filming with animation.

‘Modern Family’ won another Wednesday night on an evening where viewership appears to be down across the board. NBC’s new entry in the Law & Order franchise won its slot in both viewers and 18-49.


Wednesday’s top show was ‘Modern Family’. The show did drop from last week’s 5.0, but no one came close to its 4.5 last night. ‘Cougar Town’ could not maintain the momentum: it registered only a 2.9 (down from 3.3) and lost 4 million of its lead-in audience.

‘Criminal Minds’ came in second overall with 14.41 million viewers (up from last week) and a 3.6 (down from last week’s 4.0).

‘Law & Order: SVU’ experienced a slight dip from last week, scoring a 2.7.
