Hollywood Life: Sofia Vergara on romance with Joe Manganiello

"Modern Family" star Sofia Vergara graces the cover of Vanity Fair magazine's May issue, and inside it she talks about how she at first resisted dating Joe Manganiello.

Apparently Manganiello, the "Magic Mike XXL" star, turned to actor Jesse Tyler Ferguson, who co-stars with Vergara on "Modern Family," to fix them up the moment he found out she was single. (The Colombian actress publicly announced her split in May from her entrepreneur fiance Nick Loeb.) Vergara, though, was initially turned off and said "Jesse, no, he's too handsome. Then after two days of Jesse trying to convince me, I'm like, 'OK, give him my number."

The couple, who got engaged on Christmas while vacationing in Hawaii, have been "inseparable" since they met. "There's nothing about him I'd change other than the fact that he's four years younger than me," said Vergara, 42.

The magazine comes out Tuesday.

A 'Gremlins' reboot?

A reboot of the 1984 cult film "Gremlins" is moving forward, and some of its creative team is already coming together. Steven Spielberg, who served as executive producer on the first film, will co-produce the new version, along with Chris Columbus, who penned the original screenplay, according to Deadline.com.

The website also reports that the new screenplay will be written by Carl Ellsworth, the scribe behind the upcoming horror film "Goosebumps."
