Sofia Vergara and Reese Witherspoon worked side by side for quite some time while filming Hot Pursuit. Actors learn a great deal about one another when they work this closely together. The Modern Family star shared during a recent interview with People magazine that some of what she learned about her costar really surprised her.

"She eats a lot! She's very delicate and petite, but she eats a lot," Sofia Vergara says.

"This one eats cake," Reese Witherspoon adds. "I've never seen somebody eat so much cake in my entire life."

Sofia Vergara noted that in addition to food, Reese Witherspoon indulges in lots of coffee.

"I've never seen someone drink more coffee than you. I mean, I'm the Colombian one," she says.

During the Hot Pursuit press tour, Sofia Vergara introduced her costar to a "weeny secret weapon called Cuban coffee."

"My husband gets mad at me. He's like 'You drink too much coffee,'" Witherspoon says. "I try to only have two cups in the morning and that's it, but it gets to be 4 o'clock and I'm so tired."

Despite Reese Witherspoon's appetite and penchant for Cuban coffee, she and Sofia Vergara make a great team in Hot Pursuit. Playing in theaters now for just over a week, they are cracking up audiences with their hilarious antics.
