During an appearance on Monday's "Ellen DeGeneres Show," Vergara admitted that she got a little carried away during one of her fight scenes with Witherspoon. "I sent her to the emergency room," the 42-year-old Modern Family star said proudly. "Something with internal bleeding."
After playing coy about the "secret" injury, Witherspoon elaborated, "I thought my appendix had burst."
Vergara further explained what went down during their on-screen altercation, and sort of implied it was her co-star's fault. "I pushed her and I pushed her and I kept telling her I think I'm pushing you too hard and she was like 'No, do it real,'" she recalled.
The 39-year-old Oscar winner corroborated her co-star's story, adding, "I was like, 'Push me hard!'"
That's when it happened. "I was like this in the sofa," Vergara demonstrated, "and I popped her ovary."
When Ellen asked Witherspoon to confirm the story, she quipped, "It's clearly something that happens in Colombia... I don't know what happened."
