Everyone has been gushing about what a cute couple Charlize Theron and Eric Stonestreet make ever since the two were spotted together at the White House Correspondents Dinner in April. One “insider” told the Daily Mail, ”Charlize and Eric get along incredibly well. They started off as friends but things are blossoming between them.”
According to the source, Charlize has a thing for laid-back guys with a sense of humor. “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.”
Eric Stonestreet might be fond of Charlize Theron, but that doesn’t mean that the two are officially an item. Eric’s Twitter page certainly suggests otherwise. The actor recently tweeted the following complaint: “I wish people would stop spreading rumors that Charlize Theron and I are dating. Its starting to make Halle Berry jealous.”
For those who didn’t get the message, Eric’s rep was happy to clarify things, telling People, ”There is nothing romantic going on between them. He has only met Charlize twice!”
Eric didn’t get a hot date with Charlize (or Halle Berry for that matter) at the Emmy Awards, but he did have a good time with Paul, his best bud and earliest supporter. Eric told his Twitter followers that Paul “dared me to audition for the first play I ever did at #kstate.” (Translation for the Twitter illiterate: #kstate means Kansas State University)
We’re a little bummed that Eric and Charlize aren’t an item, but who knows? This just might free Eric up for a hot fling with Halle Berry!
