Is Eric Stonestreet really straight?

Anyone know?

Eric Who?

by Anonymousreply 111/18/2011

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.

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....

I prefer not to think of him in sexual situations, be it with a man, woman, or anything in between.

by Anonymousreply 711/18/2011

Why would he lie about it? It's not like he's gonna be a leading man if he stays closeted!

by Anonymousreply 811/18/2011

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.

by Anonymousreply 1611/20/2011

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.

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?

by Anonymousreply 2301/30/2014

He's as dumb as Cam is. That's for sure.

by Anonymousreply 2401/30/2014

He loves vagine. Deal with it.

by Anonymousreply 2501/30/2014

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)

by Anonymousreply 2801/30/2014

He based his role in MF on his Mother, an hysteric. He's an actor.

Gay or straight he's an annoying and one note actor.

by Anonymousreply 3101/30/2014

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.

by Anonymousreply 3201/31/2014

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.

by Anonymousreply 3801/31/2014

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.

by Anonymousreply 4001/31/2014

Lord he is creepy. He talks about scoring "pussy" with Stern.

by Anonymousreply 4102/01/2014

When I finished listening to that interview all I could think of was that this guy is deeply closeted.
