But Modern Family star Sofia Vergara?

"What do you want to know? I love to talk about my figure!" she joked backstage to reporters when told her curves are just as famous as Hendricks'.

"What are you wearing underneath?" asked the reporter. "I'm wearing my underwear from my Kmart line!" she enthused.

"What do you feed your famous body?" Vergara responded: "I like guacamole and marshmallows and cotton candy."

"Do you work out?" "I work out, because Julie [Bowen] is very big into working out and I always feel bad and try to follow her example. I don't eat that good, but I work out."

"Wait," co-creator and executive producer Steve Levitan interjected, "I want to know what Ed [O'Neill] is wearing underneath his tux."

"My Kmart underwear too!" said Vergara.

The show won five Emmys Sunday. So how is the cast celebrating?

"Those over 21 will be drinking. We're just going to have a party and hang out together and have fun. We actually enjoy each other's company," said Levitan.

Eric Stonestreet (who won last year for his role as Cam) also addressed a question about the cast being entered as supporting roles instead of lead.

"It's really no decision. It's the same this year as last year. We consider ourselves an ensemble cast… if they're going to give trophies out to people for doing good at their jobs… we're a united team and cast. We love each other. We all add the same amount of value to the show."

Of winning outstanding comedy series two years in a row, O'Neill said: "I wanted to win it very badly. For me, it was better than the first time. Just to repeat it is difficult, and for us to have done it, I'm relieved."
