She came to chat with Jay Leno, but left with cat hair on her dress.
Emmy winner Julie Bowen got up close and personal with an 8-week-old lion cub on Leno's couch Tuesday. The Modern Family star cuddled the adorable baby big cat as animal expert Dave Salmoni explained that the cubs will one day grow to be about 500 lbs.
"Does he want to nurse or anything?" Bowen joked as the cat nuzzled into her chest. "I'm fine, I've just raised a lot of nursers and he's sort of doing that motion."
On ABC's Modern Family, Eric Stonestreet, 38, is the flashy and affectionate Lion King-loving Cameron Tucker, who moonlights as Fizbo the clown. His longtime partner, the tightly wound and Fizbo-loathing lawyer Mitchell Pritchett, is played by Jesse Tyler Ferguson, 34. Together, they make up one of the most high-profile gay couples on prime time.
And like any couple, real or fictional, these two have their pet peeves with each other.
