‘Modern Family’ actress Julie Bowen explained why she believes Ann Romney named the show her favorite during the election, in the Metro UK.
What do you think of the fact Michelle Obama and Ann Romney have both namechecked Modern Family as their favourite show?
I think it’s great that two such diverse groups of people watch the show. I think that having Jay [Ed O’Neill] in the show gives people a set of eyes to watch with, particularly those who are more conservative or old-fashioned. It gives Ann Romney her way into the show. Yes, his son is gay, yes, his son has a partner and they have a child – he accepts it but was it his first choice? No. Does he love it if they are touching each other? No. And I think that’s also Ann Romney’s way of letting us know she had to say and do things she doesn’t really believe for the election.
