Eric Stonestreet Sexuality
Often, people are confused regarding Eric Stonestreet’s sexuality, and rightfully so. In fans’ eyes, Eric is that funny-looking gay guy from the TV. People tend to picture Eric as the character he plays. However, this judgment about Eric is not valid.
Though Eric’s character portrays a gay person dating men in tv shows, he is straight. Moreover, Eric has openly said that he is heterosexual during an interview with Oprah. However, Eric is not bothered by fans slamming him for being gay or labeling him as one. Eric believes that his fame most likely caused this confusion on his sexuality as a gay character.
On the other hand, Eric’s partner in Modern Family, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, is gay whose husband is Justin Mikita. Perhaps Eric being in contact with other gays also made the fans mistake him for being homosexual.
Though Jesse and Eric have good chemistry on the show as a gay couple, the two are only friends in reality. Furthermore, Jesse disregarded any rumor of Eric’s sexuality by calling him a guy, who became gay only for pay.
Nonetheless, Eric is straight. However, Eric strongly supports the LGBT community. Eric even proved his support for this community by refusing to take a photo with Rick Santorum, a protestor and a hater of LGBTQ+ equality.
In other words, regardless of his gender, Eric has no problem with meeting gay people and instead supports them from all his heart.
