“Modern Family” star Sofia Vergara didn’t shy away from discussing rumors regarding her 18-month marriage to Joe Manganiello.
“We don’t care about that,” she told the Daily News at a special screening of “The Emoji Movie.” “What can you do? It’s the entertainment business.”
In May, the 45-year-old Colombian actress slammed Star magazine for its cover, which screamed “Sofia & Joe: It’s Over!” and alleged she had been caught cheating in Rome.
“The editor of this magazine is an idiot,” Vergara fumed on Instagram.
Her “True Blood” star hubby, 40, also blasted the tabloid, writing it was a “fake story” that “Photoshopped my wife’s engagement ring off her finger in order to sell magazines. They are run by malicious trash. Do the world a favor and don’t buy their garbage.”
Indeed, on Thursday night, the couple was spotted hugging and laughing as they enjoyed a date night at a Guns N’ Roses private concert at the Apollo Theater alongside other celebs, like actors Jason Biggs and Drea de Matteo and Mets pitcher Noah Syndergaard.
Vergara, who came to the screening with her son Manolo, 24, says her favorite emojis are “the smiley one and of course the dancing girl.” That’s the one she happens to play in the cartoon film, which also features the voices of T.J. Miller, James Corden and Anna Faris.
The sitcom star noted her part in the film is minuscule.
“It’s a tiny, tiny part. I’m barely in the movie but I thought it would be super fun and easy for me to do because it was in L.A.,” she explained.
Indeed, Vergara estimates she spent no more than half an hour recording her lines as Flamenca, a flamenco dancer emoji.
Despite being a genetically blessed celeb duo, Vergara and Manganiello don’t spend time gazing into the mirror.
“Don’t you do that, too?” she asked laughingly. “Get in front of the mirror with your man? Can you imagine? I tell him, ‘You’re very handsome’ but I don’t say, ‘Look at yourself in the mirror!’ ”
