Sofia Vergara On Her Menage a Trois in Woody Allen's 'Fading Gigolo'

Sofia Vergara has been speaking about her nerves at shooting a ménage a trois with Sharon Stone and John Turturro in Woody Allen's romantic drama Fading Gigolo. The movie - easily the least talked about bit of cinema ever - has a limited release in the U.S this weekend.

It follows the story of Turturro's character, who plays a male escort teaming up with an unlikely pimp (Woody) to make a little bit of extra cash. Vergara and Stone play Turturro's satisfied clients. 

The Modern Family star admitted that it took a little while to get used to a love scene involving two partners. "At the beginning, I was a little nervous because...I've never done anything like this, not in real life or on camera," Vergara told CBS, "So it was a little nerve-wracking."

Luckily, she had help from Stone - who is no stranger to racy scenes.

"When I arrived on the set, Sharon was very supportive," Vergara said. "She was very nice. She told me, 'Just follow me, I've done this many times, it's going to be fine, just relax.'"

Turturro - who also wrote and directed the movie - said he made Fading Gigolo to explore people's reactions to unusual encounters.

"I thought it would be interesting to put these characters in situations they had never been in before," he said.

"He's got an energy that is so communicative," said French actress Vanessa Paradis of her director. In the film, Paradis - the former partner of Johnny Depp - plays a very conservative Orthodox Jew who falls in love with Turturro's character, which creates issues when he has to see his clients.

Fading Gigolo opens on Friday.
