Ellen: Julie Bowen “Modern Family”
Ellen welcomed Modern Family‘s Julie Bowen to her June 26 show. Modern Family won its fourth consecutive Emmy Award for Best Comedy in 2013.
She said she was wearing Monica Chang pants and said that wearing the pants was as far into the ’80s as she was willing to go. Ellen asked her if she ever sported the typical 80’s fashion and she said she actually went to a boarding school in the ’80s and people didn’t even use product in their hair there, so she never had the big ’80s hair.
As for Modern Family, she said when they were at the Emmys, the cast would get up during commercial breaks and be like, “Okay, so we’re not going to win, but it’s cool. We love our show.” But then they actually announced that they won and they were incredibly excited about it.
Ellen TV: Julie Bowen Red Carpet
Ellen showed a picture of Julie Bowen on the red carpet and said you’re basically like a puppet, because you’re standing there while photographers shout things like “blow a kiss” or “look over your shoulder”. But then when she was standing there, she heard “Bowen” in a deep voice, and turned and saw it was Jon Hamm so she stopped to chat and then over the loud speaker she heard “Julie Bowen, move on”.
She said it’s so awful to stand there in the beginning because people are yelling things that are sometimes vulgar and then to be told to move on, she just shook her head. She said she just had to take a minute with Jon Hamm because “If he acknowledges you’re alive, you acknowledge back.”
Ellen: Julie Bowen Anaphylaxis
Julie Bowen talked about when her son went into anaphylactic shock, and said since she has been trying to raise awareness for anaphylaxis. She said she wanted to make sure people are using their auto-injectors and they’re up to date. She said she wants people to know the signs and symptoms so they could maybe save themselves as well as someone else.
Ellen TV: Julie Bowen Son Oliver
Julie shared that her 6-year-old son Oliver is obsessed with DJ-ing. Ellen asked Oliver to come out and help be her DJ, so she gave him a hat, glasses, a chain, and a hoodie that said DJ Oliver on the back. He even had his own DJ set next to Mario Lopez’s. When Mario asked him what song he wanted to play, he said “Gangnam Style“. The song started playing and Oliver started doing the dance.
Ellen: Jesse Tyler Ferguson Wedding
Ellen shared that Julie actually passed on an important appointment in order to be at Ellen on time. Julie said she made an appointment with the Trusted Traveler Program down at LAX, where they were going to quiz her or something. For doing it, she would get a card where she gets to go through a special lane where she doesn’t have to take her shoes off or anything. But she passed on the appointment to come to Ellen.
She also shared that she just went to New York to watch Jesse Tyler Ferguson get married. She said her husband said “every wedding should be a gay wedding.” She said there was a gospel choir, which she thought was a big thing. She also said she danced all night long, which is not something she usually does.
