Oops! Julie Bowen Calls a Guest Star the Wrong Name!
Julie Bowen’s performance as Claire Dunphy on Modern Family snagged her an Emmy at Sunday night’s awards. And, while her acting chops in the series is clearly top-notch, she not always at her “best” early in the morning.
Recently, she had a minor "oops" moment on set with Season 3 guest star David Cross; who plays a town councilman caught up in a political “face-off” with Claire. '
“I called him David Chase,” Julie confessed to Entertainment Weekly. “I was maybe not at my very best at 5 a.m.”
She tried to address him as a "mister" to show more respect. “When I said ‘Mr. Chase,’ he looked at me like, ‘Are you joking? I love the respect with the wrong name.’ I was like, ‘I loved The Sopranos.’”
Maybe Julie could have used another cup of coffee!
