Though Aubrey has done a great job on the show, Jesse said there were a few humorous shenanigans that proceeded her arrival.

“She looked at me and Eric at one point and said, ‘Are you real people because you live in a fake house?'” Jesse said and laughed at how surprisingly poignant he found her question.

Most hilarious of all, Jesse said Aubrey likes to play with costar Sofia Vergara‘s breasts.


“First of all, she was obsessed with Sofia‘s…area,” he said while he gestured to his chest. He looked over at Ellen and teased, “I’m desperate to show on you how she was but I’m not going to do it.”

Jesse found it very amusing and joked, “All of the grips and stagehands were like, ‘Aw man…she’s a lucky little girl.'”

Ellen: Jesse Tyler Ferguson Modern Family Emmy Awards

When star of Modern Family, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, sat down next to Ellen, she immediately thanked him for what she called a “Modern Family Emmy occasion.”

“It was a crazy night,” Jesse said. “I woke up that morning without any electricity or hot water.”

Jesse said he ran around his neighborhood trying to find anybody who had electricity and hot water so that he could take a shower before the awards ceremony.

“I almost took a little horse bath,” he said.

Luckily, his hot water came back just in time for him to shower before heading to the ceremony!

Ellen: Jesse Tyler Ferguson’s Acting Career

Jesse told Ellen he has been acting his whole life. Apparently, when he was a child, Jesse used to put on his own shows.

“I was very active in my living room,” he said.

Ellen asked how old he was when he put on living room shows and Jesse comically estimated between six and 18 years old.

“I would sell tickets to my parents,” Jesse said.

“They had to pay to be in their own living room?” Ellen asked.

“For the evening because that space had been rented out,” Jesse said.

Jesse said that once his siblings backed out of a show that he had planned for the living room and when they asked for their parts back, he made them sign contracts!

“You’ve always been way way into this,” Ellen said.

“Super into this,” Jesse said.

Jesse Tyler Ferguson Wants to Marry President Obama?

Jesse recently attended the the 98th annual White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner. He told Ellen that while at the dinner, “all of the sudden all of the secret service were talking to their wrists.” He was informed shortly thereafter that President Barack Obama wanted to meet him.

Jesse said that when the president came by, he opened his arms in a grand gesture and exclaimed, “JESSE!

This warm interaction was likely prompted by Jesse‘s previous tweet, “With @MichelleObama & @JustinMikita permission I would like to marry @BarackObama right now!” following the president’s endorsement of gay marriage.

Steven Spielberg’s a Modern Family Fan

Ellen spoke very highly of Jesse‘s show Modern Family.

“It’s a very funny show,” she said. “Very clever.”

Jesse said that legendary director Steven Spielberg is a huge fan of the show. This was quite an honor to Jesse because he said Steven is a “man I’ve adored for so many years.”

“He actually corners us at these events,” Jesse said and joked, “We have a restraining order against him. He’s just too big of a fan.”
