Bowen explained to Boston Common that she sought out television roles in recent years in order to spend more time at home with her three young sons.
“The boys are finally at an age where I find them to be so luscious and fantastic that I don’t want to be away if I don’t have to be. We all love each other,” she explained.
“The reality is, Claire is a mom who has older kids… I might grow into a Claire, but I’m definitely not dealing with the issues of sex and boys at school,” she quipped.

Actress Julie Bowen, awarded her second Emmy Sunday for her role in the hit TV comedy “Modern Family,” starts a more serious role today: raising awareness about life-threatening childhood allergies.
The two-time best supporting actress in a comedy series and mother of three knows firsthand about potentially fatal allergic reactions (anaphylaxis). Her oldest son, Oliver Phillips, was 2 years old when he developed anaphylaxis in reaction to the double-whammy exposure of a bee sting coupled with a bit of peanut butter.
Bowen now is spearheading the nationwide awareness campaign with the help of Mylan, the pharmaceutical company that makes an epinephrine-loaded delivery device called the EpiPen.
“The goal is education,” said Bowen. “We, as parents, can’t always be with our children all day, every day. So we want the people around them to be educated.”
In addition to winning the award for outstanding comedy for the third year in a row, “Modern Family” swept both supporting acting awards for comedies and picked up another for directing.
Eric Stonestreet claimed the first Emmy Award Sunday night, honored with the trophy for best supporting actor in a comedy series for his “Modern Family” role as Cameron Tucker.
After a summer of heated salary negotiations that led to a lawsuit, the cancellation (and subsequent rescheduling) of a table read and a tense week of back-and-forth negotiations, the six adult actors on ABC’s top-rated comedy have agreed in principle to new contracts with producer 20th Century Fox Television.
The end to the messy stalemate allows the fourth season of the Emmy-winning comedy to begin production on time next week in advance of its Sept. 26 premiere. The series is a profit center for both 20th TV and ABC, for which it regularly draws 13.1 million viewers, according to Nielsen. In 2011, Modern Family generated $164 million in advertising revenue for ABC, up 40 percent from a year earlier, reports Kantar Media.
Simmering tensions in the battle over the spoils from a wildly successful sitcom boiled over in public Tuesday as five “Modern Family” stars filed a lawsuit against 20th Century Fox TV amid a stalemate in their contract renegotiation talks.
Julie Bowen, Ty Burrell, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Eric Stonestreet and Sofia Vergara claim in the suit, filed in Los Angeles Superior Court, that the original contracts they signed for the show violate California’s seven-year limit on personal service contracts. That legal precedent was established in 1944 after actress Olivia de Havilland waged a long contract fight against Warner Bros.
The other adult star of the series, Ed O’Neill, was not named as one of the plaintiffs but has since joined the litigation in a show of unity with his co-stars.
