LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Eric Stonestreet and Charlize Theron a couple!?!? Not according to the Emmy-nominated “Modern Family” star.
Eric took to Twitter on Sunday to weigh in on a report from Britain’s Daily Mail that claimed “things are blossoming” between himself and the Oscar winner/single mother.
“I wish people would stop spreading rumors that Charlize Theron and I are dating,” Eric Tweeted. “It’s starting to make Halle Berry jealous.”
The Daily Mail also reported, “Eric is down to earth and funny and Charlize thinks the world of him. It’s early days but they’re very fond of each other.”
The actor’s rep was quick to point out that the pair has only met a few times.
“There is nothing romantic going on between them. He has only met Charlize twice!” the actor’s rep told People.
As Eric makes his way down the 2012 Emmy Awards red carpet, he won’t have Charlize ( or Halle) by his side – he’s actually taking a friend.
“Today I’m taking my best friend Paul to the Emmys. He dared me to audition for the first play I ever did,” the “Modern Family” star said in another Tweet.
