Anderson Cooper Gives Julie Bowen Nipple Covers To Commemorate Her Emmys Speech (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

“Modern Family” star Julie Bowen stopped by "Anderson" on Wednesday, where she and Anderson Cooper reminisced about her Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Emmys acceptance speech in which she mentioned nipple covers no less than three times. In honor of her speech, Cooper presented Bowen with an appropriate gift.

"We actually got you 'Anderson Live' nipple covers ... it's a first for us," Cooper said, handing them over to Bowen. "I'm proud, thank you," Bowen gushed.

Bowen's 'nipple covers' speech started some internet controversy when editor Nikki Finke critiqued the speech, using it to make a point that, "Beautiful actresses are not funny. They don’t know how to do comedy."

But whether the speech is remembered as cringe-worthy or memorable, at least Bowen got a few free nipple covers out of the deal.
