Eric Stonestreet not dating Charlize Theron after all
Speaking of Modern Family news, best supporting actor Emmy winner Eric Stonestreet is the subject of a lot of talk these days, but not because he tweeted a photo of his rump (thank goodness). There have been a lot of rumors he's dating Charlize Theron. Unfortunately for him and pudgy guys everywhere, that's not the case.
"I wish people would stop spreading rumors that Charlize Theron and I are dating. Its starting to make Halle Berry jealous," he wrote via @ericstonestreet. His publicist confirmed the news to People, saying, "There is nothing romantic going on between them. He has only met Charlize twice!"
The rumor ramped up after the U.K.'s Daily Mail said the 41-year-old was having a fling with Theron after he broke up with Katherine Tokarz, so we wonder why he's so quick to dispel the chatter. He does have one new affair, though: FX's American Horror Story will be having him back on the show after his one-episode story last season, TV Online says. This time, instead of playin a guy afraid of urban legends, he'll be a killer locked up in the show's asylum. If only Charlize could have saved him.
