“Who who else is gonna do that than me?” she quipped. “But, you know, what it was, like, a very easy thing for me to do. I just did like half hour on a on a recording booth, it's a very, very small role. It was just, like, a little fun thing that they wrote into the movie so I was able to do it when I was doing Modern Family, so it was it was good.”

Other stars who voice emojis include James Corden, Anna Faris, Maya Rudolph, Christina Aguilera, Patrick Stewart, and Rachael Ray.
