Sofia Vergara thinks Joe Manganiello is from ''another species.''

The 'Modern Family' star admits the 'Magic Mike' actor's physique is incredible and she feels very lucky she ''gets to play'' with him.

The 42-year-old actress told the 'Today' show: ''To me, he's like another species. I look at him, and it's like I feel like I am like in the movie 'E.T.' Remember? When an alien lands ... and I'm the one who gets to play with it.''

The Colombian star recently claimed she only started working out after she turned 40.

She said: ''Everyone knows that I've never been into working out. I was always very happy with what I have. Then I hit 40 and I started seeing a softness everywhere on my body.''

But the brunette beauty still has a very sweet tooth and is considering hypnosis to help her curb her addiction to sugary snacks.

She said: ''I heard about someone in LA who got hypnotised so they wouldn't eat candy. I'm seriously looking into that because I'm obsessed [with candy].''

The couple started dating in July and former 'True Blood' hunk Joe, 37, previously revealed he had a huge crush on Sofia before they got together.
