sofia vergara sag 2012 gi SAG Awards: Sofia Vergara's boyfriend, Nick Loeb, 'loves my career'Red carpet conversations can get a little, well, inane. Especially when E!’s Giuliana Rancic is behind the microphone. But we applaud her for thinking to ask how “Modern Family’s” Sofia Vergara landed boyfriend Nick Loeb — or rather how he landed her.

“He’s funny and you know very laid back and he loves like my career,” says Vergara. “He supports me and he likes coming to these events. For him it’s like a great time. For him it’s like a hobby to be part of this Hollywood scene.”

We’re sure Sofia didn’t mean to give the impression that her boyfriend is a– well, that he’s just with her because she’s a hot actress who gets to go to SWAG events and rub shoulders with the likes of George Clooney and Angelina Jolie, but that’s totally the impression we got.

The man in question, by the way, is 35-year-old businessman Loeb who in August 2010 was severely injured when his car careened off a cliff in Beverly Hills — leaving him with a broken leg, injured chest and fractured pelvis.

Loeb and Vergara, 39, were rumored to be engaged in 2010, but denied it.
