Reese Witherspoon dishes on pals Sofía and Joe


Reese Witherspoon approves of Sofía Vergara and Joe Manganiello.

The 42-year-old Modern Family actress and 37-year-old True Blood actor have been romantically linked since July of this year. They were introduced in May while Sofía was engaged to ex-fiancé Nick Loeb. Now it appears the couple has the seal of approval from Reese. “They’re great!” the Legally Blonde actress told Us Weekly. Reese and Sofía filmed the comedy-action movie Don’t Mess with Texas in New Orleans earlier this year.

‘They’re great!’

"I just wanted to make a movie with Sofía," Reese told The Hollywood Reporter. "We got together and just started brainstorming. The Latino audience is so underserved. This woman is Lucille Ball. She is so funny."

Reese posted a photo of herself with the new couple on Friday, Sept. 5, at the Stand Up To Cancer telecast event held at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles.

“Sorry I stole your earrings @sofiavergara and please #SU2,” she captioned the image.

Sofía expressed her happiness with her new beau when she arrived at the 66th Primetime Emmy Awards last month. The actress appeared solo at the event, joking Joe was “too hot” to bring along.

“We’re having a lot of fun,” she added while talking to E! News’s Giuliana Rancic. “We’ve been going out just for like two months and a half and he’s a really funny guy, which is something very important for me. And a very nice guy.”

Sarah Hyland has also given the star-powered couple her approval. In July she told Us Weekly, "I think they are super hot together.”

The 23-year-old actress, who stars alongside Sofía in Modern Family, added, “I love them individually. So him and Sofía together, I’m all for it! They’d make really hot babies!"
