OK, so Sarah Hyland officially had the coolest childhood ever.

How do we know this? Well, the Modern Family starlet revealed that she took dance classes with the iconic Liza Minnelli when she was younger, giving E! News' Ross Matthews the scoop on the red carpet at  the 20th annual Screen Actors Guild Awards.

"I used to take dance classes with her. At Luigi's in New York," Hyland said. "From ages like 8 to 15."

But wait, her childhood gets even cooler.

Hyland, who looked gorgeous in a Pamella Roland gown, dished on her "first job ever": a small part in Howard Stern's Private Parts!

"He was so nice. I remember him taking him taking his glasses off and I remember thinking he hadthe bluest eyes I had ever seen in my life," she recalled, before telling a surprising story about the radio personality, who is known for his shocking interviews.

"It's actually funny in retrospect, looking back at everything, what his show is like and stuff, but a crew guy cursed in front of me, I was four or five and he like yelled at him," Hyland said. "He was like, ‘Don't curse in front of the children! It's disrespectful.' And I was like, ‘Oh, he's so nice!'"

Hyland, who will next be seen on the big screen in Vampire Academy, and her Modern Family cast members are nominated for Best Comedy Ensemble at the 2014 SAG Awards.
