Most people already know Modern Family’sEric Stonestreet is gay for pay, but aside from his raging heterosexuality off-screen, his personal life is a total mystery! Eric jokes that he’s “openly straight,” but he’s notoriously private about his love connections. We all know what that means: Homeboy’s a playa!
Then again, going gay on TV might make it hard to meet the ladies …
"To meet from the ground up a girl is difficult,” Eric says. “Being introduced by friends is a little easier. I never want to seem embarrassed or ashamed that I'm playing a gay person. So I would never want to be like, 'Hey, I'm not gay.'"
Sigh, how is it possible that this sweetheart isn’t taken?
Oh wait, he is! Eric’s been spotted arm-in-arm with Broadway beauty Katherine Tokarz, and says they bonded over their mutual appreciate for Brussels sprouts: "She made them for me in her apartment in Queens and brought them to me. And I thought, 'Wow, you are something else!'”
Hey Eric — if you like it, you better put a ring on it!
