‘I’m not dating Charlize Theron’

2012-09-25 00:00

ACTOR Eric Stonestreet, who won an Emmy on Sunday for playing gay dad Cameron Tucker in Modern Family, has laughed off reports that he and Charlize Theron are dating.

The Britsh Mail Online reported at the weekend that the pair had met through mutual friends and that their relationship was “blossoming”.

Interviewed on the red carpet before the Emmy ceremony, Stonestreet was asked by Entertainment Tonight why he was accompanied by a friend, rather than by Theron. “Well, I tried,” he joked.

He said he couldn’t imagine where the rumour had started.

Earlier he had tweeted: “I wish people would stop spreading rumours that Charlize Theron and I are dating. It’s starting to make Halle Berry jealous.”

His representative said Stone­street had met Theron twice. One of those times was at a White House reception in April.

A representative of Theron also denied the story, the Huffington Post reported.
