Modern Family‘s Julie Bowen smiles for the camera in a pair of gold earrings, casual hair and black acetate glasses. However, the actress looks completely changed on the cover of Lucky Magazine, the April issue, donning a Tommy Hilfiger jacket, gorgeous jewelry and her hair down. The 43 year old doesn’t consider herself a beauty: “I don’t even know what to say about that, because then, I’d have to acknowledge I was some kind of attractive ideal, and that’s just not the way I was raised. Plus, I feel like I look like the pale girl in some Flemish painting.” About Claire, the role that made her famous, she says: “All I can say is, thank God for television! Our writers are flexible enough to write to my strengths and open-minded enough to imagine Claire in a car pool and naked in a hot spring. I needed good material. I’m not like Amy Poehler, who can make anything funny.” She also admits to having a stylist now, which was a must in her job. She’s also sharing her with Kristen Stewart, who, as Bowen puts it, gets all the “funky stuff”: “If I get K-Stew’s castoffs, that’s all right with me,” she jokes.
