Eric Stonestreet Responds to Rumors He’s Dating Charlize Theron
Eric Stonestreet is already big pimpin' across Hollywood — if you believe the rumors out there, anyway. The Modern Family star recently split with his girlfriend, actress Katherine Tokarz, and he was reportedly "talking to several attractive women and exchanging phone numbers" at a recent Emmy Week kickoff party.
Not only that, he's supposedly already stolen the heart of A-list Oscar winner Charlize Theron, who broke up with her longterm boyfriend, Stuart Townsend in 2010. According to The Daily Mail, Eric and Charlize were introduced by mutual friends in L.A. earlier this year. "Charlize and Eric get along incredibly well," an unnamed source close to Charlize told the Daily Mail. "They started off as friends but things are blossoming between them." The Daily Mail has a cute photo of Charlize leaning on Eric in April at the White House Correspondents Dinner, but that doesn't really hint to anything more than friendship.
Eric joked about the situation September 23 on Twitter: "I wish people would stop spreading rumors that Charlize Theron and I are dating. Its starting to make Halle Berry jealous."
Ha! It’s making us jealous, too. Between the romance rumors and his Dodgers game outburst, it’s clear Eric may be different from his Modern alter-ego, Cameron, but they’re both very passionate — and hilarious — gents.
