Julie Bowen: We All Want to Look Like Jennifer Aniston

The Modern Family star says she'd have to be really drunk to think she was as beautiful as Aniston

Every week we watch Julie Bowen absolutely kill it as Claire Dunphy on Modern Family, and we're secretly a little jealous that someone can be so pretty and so funny at the same time. But it turns out Bowen has a girl crush of her own -- on Jennifer Aniston!

"She's one of our own," Bowen told People.com of her costar in the upcoming movie Horrible Bosses. "She's incredibly beautiful in the way that you think you could be if you got drunk enough and looked in the mirror just at the right angle." 

Bowen, 41, says that the minute she met Aniston, she immediately wanted to be her friend.

"In the makeup trailer, I was pulled into her orbit," Bowen laughed. "I've met her a few times before, she's an incredibly nice person. I don't think I've ever heard a bad word said about her, and it's all true." 

Though Bowen is no slouch herself, the blonde beauty says that Aniston, 42, has the type of looks that everyone wants, herself included.

"You think she's an accessible sort of beautiful, but you really can't get that beautiful on your own,"  she says. "You'd have to drink your way there."

While we think Bowen is totally underestimating her own appeal, we see what she's saying about Jen. Aniston is naturally beautiful in a way that doesn't overwhelm the average person like, let's say, Angelina Jolie. And while Bowen may want to be BFFs with Jen, we'd love to meet both down-to-earth ladies for a cocktail!
