I remember someone claiming he'd been pretty out before he got the role on "Modern Family" and went back into the closet. Not sure if that's true or not. Seeing interviews with the cast I've gotten the impression that Jesse Tyler Ferguson doesn't really care for Stonestreet. Though I can imagine JTF being something of a diva.
40's, never married, took mother to Emmys.
that is all
So weird that he would stay in the closet. Maybe saying he's really straight got him the Emmy?
They tweet each other often enough. Sometimes with photos together. Doesn't seem staged....
Here piggy piggy pig.
I prefer not to think of him in sexual situations, be it with a man, woman, or anything in between.
Why would he lie about it? It's not like he's gonna be a leading man if he stays closeted!
According to Wikipedia he is married. He is "Gay for Pay"!
I sincerely hope not. He'd be an ideal wife for a chubby chaser like me!
I keep hoping they'll get him in drag for at least one episode, but the closest they seem to get is that dopey clown costume.
When he visited Australia recently, he had some woman on his arm and was sporting designer stubble.
R1 is so fucking tiresome.
I heard him say in an interview that he has a girlfriend.
I don't know.. he seemed pretty gay to me in American Horror Story
He was in the movie "Girls Will Be Girls" which had an all-gay cast.
Last week he was on some talk show and immediately started talking about dating women.
Any interview he does he always talks about his hetero love life.
but he still PINGS
Well, whether he's straight or not, the fact that he "seems" gay and "pings" is exactly why he was cast in Modern Family, r13, r16.
He's dating some girl from Rock of Ages on Bway.

Seriously? Girls can be chubby chasers too?
I used to love him on Cold Case.
He definately gay. What straight guy would be vine(ing) every minute. Im gay and he's gayer than i am. He is way back in the closet......
Well said r21....vine(ing)-huh?
Did anyone listen to Eric on Howard Stern yesterday? He claims that he picks up a lot of women on Tinder (Grindr for straights, I guess). And that he doesn't take a date to award shows so he can potentially hook up at the after parties. In fact, most of the interview was devoted to his raging heterosexuality. The lady doth protest too much?
He's as dumb as Cam is. That's for sure.
He loves vagine. Deal with it.
Howard Stern has become like a press agent for people now. Just shilling their shit. Do they pay HIM?
In the old days he'd be trying to hook him up with someone on air.

Yes he's straight. Actors who portray gay characters on television often spend their media appearances mentioning their straightness. Thats just how it works. maybe one day they wont need to but since most of us only know him from that role, it makes his interviews a bit more interesting since his persona is so different. (this is true of anyone who plays comedically broad characters, not just gays)
He based his role in MF on his Mother, an hysteric. He's an actor.
I eat old peoples excrement.
Gay or straight he's an annoying and one note actor.
I've always thought he was gay, and not just because of his role. He NEVER has a girlfriend. Fat and ugly straight guys are ALWAYS still able to find women if they're rich and famous.
I just listened to the whole Stern interview today. Was interesting to say the least. He did seem way too concerned about flaunting his heterosexuality.
Wish Ty Burrell was gay. Fuck, he's hot.
great big fat person
On Howard they talked a lot about all the times he was rejected for different roles and how he now has two Emmys. He doesn't seem to realize, or at least admit, that Hollywood history is littered with actors who struck gold with one role in a hit show and then faded into obscurity once the series ended. It has nothing to do with whether they are talented, but just the luck of being the right actor for the right role at the right time. The downside is he will always be "Cam from Modern Family" whenever he pops up in any future projects.
"just the luck of being the right actor for the right role at the right time"
Because he looks like every queen in cargo shorts + tie-dye shirt at the Gay Pride Parade.
Have no idea why he won an Emmy. His acting is uninspiring-to-cringeworthy.
R36, it's not unlikely that someone who tells those stories about being rejected over and over is fully aware that this could be the role and the only role for him. On the other hand, most of us thought Al Bundy would never be able to shake that character, and look at Ed O'Neill now.
I don't know why someone would "admit" that publicly, it's not good PR for the show. There's no reason to bring it up. Doesn't mean he doesn't think it.
On the Emmy Hollywood Reporter round table last year he complained a lot about people not being able to accept him in different roles and how ridiculous he thought it was.
Matthew Perry's advice was: "you better get used to it!"
(hee hee good one Matthew!)
He was on Letterman this week. I don't recall him mentioning being straight in the interview. They did cut to the woman who was with him in the green room: his mom.
Lord he is creepy. He talks about scoring "pussy" with Stern.
When I finished listening to that interview all I could think of was that this guy is deeply closeted.
