Eric Stonestreet Speaks About Dating Charlize Theron
Hot new couple alert?
A steamy romantic relationship is "blossoming" between Charlize Theron and Modern Family star, Eric Stonestreet, says a well-placed source at the Daily Mail.
The single stars met through mutual friends in L.A. and the Monster actress is "very fond" of the "down to earth and funny" comedic actor.
But wait — could Eric be stringing along another A-lister too?
"I wish people would stop spreading rumors that Charlize Theron and I are dating," he Tweeted. "Its starting to make Halle Berry jealous."
Clearly, he was joking with his 319 thousand followers and complained that Halle was "so cold" after hearing about his fictional dalliances with Charlize.
"It was just quiet — fork and knife on the plate," he quipped to Ryan Seacrest on the red carpet. "Halle and I weren't speaking at all. And I'm like, 'Halle, listen! It's just a rumor. It's not a real.'"
Jokes aside, this might not be the worst time for a Eric/Charlize/Halle love triangle to hit the web.
"There is nothing romantic going on between them. He has only met Charlize twice!" his rep told People, but it is true that the Emmy winner is recently single after a summer split from his long-term girlfriend Katherine Torkaz.
