The actress sat down with fellow judge Howie Mandel on his podcast Howie Mandel Does Stuff to discuss her life and career.

While talking about feelings of security among the group, they both asserted that Heidi was "super secure, being a supermodel".

Sofia continued: "I feel like I'm secure. But imagine, being 50 and sitting next to a supermodel," talking about inherent comparisons between the two and how she had internalized some of them.

Howie brought up a particular incident in which he found the two ladies screaming, with Sofia adding that she was the one doing it.

Sofia and Heidi playfully clash over the latter wearing heels

"I screamed at her because why am I at 50 competing with this? It's not fair," clarifying that the situation was regarding Heidi wearing heels.

She stated that because of her co-star being "super tall," she would be a little unnerved whenever she wore taller heels because they'd make her look shorter in comparison.

Howie kept asserting that there was no comparison between the two, but the Modern Family actress said: "I am beautiful, I am sexy, I am whatever you want. But you don't compare me to a supermodel."

The group broke out into laughter when Sofia suggested that if there were an emergency, Heidi would have to be barefoot so they could run together.

She did add at the end: "I love having fun with her because I love her. And she's so stunning, I love her getting dressed to the nines every time," with Howie also mentioning that they've become quite close off the show.
