Eric Stonestreet: 'Cam is a Bossy, Fussy Bottom'

Screenshot 2014-07-27 14.56.48Eric Stonestreet, famous for his portrayal of Modern Family’s resident farm-raised house husband Cameron Tucker, spoke to the Huffington Post about his character’s sexuality, a topic that the show has made a point of avoiding addressing directly.

“Jesse [Tyler Ferguson] and I call Cam a ‘bossy, fussy bottom,’" the actor explained. "Now, what I get is a lot of guys who come up and want to challenge my sexuality."

Early in Modern Family’s run, ABC came under fire for its seeming refusal to acknowledge Cam and Mitchell’s (Jesse Tyler Ferguson) relationship aside from their referring to each other as “boyfriends.” A Facebook group titled “Let Cam & Mitchell Kiss on Modern Family” eventually brought enough attention to the omission of physical displays of affection that the network dedicated an entire episode to it.

Stonestreet also said that he is struck by the number of conservative politicians who appreciate his character:

Stonestreet said he was amazed at some of the conservative politicians who have approached him wanting to take photos. When Santorum did just that at a recent White House Correspondents Dinner, Stonestreet flat out refused.

“It was at a time when he was publicly saying, ‘Gay marriage, gay marriage’ and I’m like, ‘You know, I can’t do it,’” he said. “It was with him and his kids or something like that, and I said, ‘I’d be happy to take a picture with the kids,’ but I can’t just be in a picture with [Santorum.]”

The on-camera couple were finally married in the show’s most recent season, but their sex life has remained something of an obscure topic rarely touched upon in Modern Family’s five-season run.

Eric Stonestreet Talks About Modern Family's Upcoming 'Gay Agenda'

Ericstonestreet[SPOILERS]

Eric Stonestreet, the Emmy-award winning actor who plays Cam on ABC's "Modern Family" (and appeared in a hilarious 2011 sketch, at right, with co-star Jesse Tyler Ferguson) recently revealed a few upcoming episode secrets, proving that what happens in Vegas does not stay in Vegas. Of course, Cam and Mitchell's wedding is coming up and a bachelor party is inevitable. In true comedic fashion, though, the couple finds themselves in the midst of someone else's celebration rather than their own.

Entertainment Weekly reports:

“We just shot an episode that was kind of an anti-bachelor party episode in Vegas,” says the man who plays Cam. “When we get there we run into Langham, Mitchell’s ex played by the great Fred Armisen, and he’s there having his bachelor party. And they say ‘Well, while you’re here, feel free to stop by,’ and he hands me a piece of paper with all the happenings, and I turn and I go, ‘Wow, an actual gay agenda.’ So I sneak off and go and participate in their bachelor party while Mitchell gets a sauna and gets a message.”

Sounds like things may get a little rowdy, but will we see some ever-elusive "Modern Family" gay PDA? 

Head over to EW and listen to Eric Stonestreet's podcast! And let us know your favorite Cam/Mitchell moments in the comments below.


Mitch And Cam Evolve Their 'Modern Family' [Spoilers]: VIDEO

[SPOILERS]

On last night's season premiere of Modern Family, Mitch and Cam (arguably the most prominent gay couple on television today) celebrated the end of Prop. 8 by getting engaged. After lots of speculation (as well as some pressure from the ACLU), the Emmy-winning comedy had both characters drop to one knee simultaneously for a dual proposal. As the show enters its fifth season (as well as its first in syndication), Mitch and Cam continue to (sometimes slowly) broaden audiences' exposure to gay relationships on TV.

Watch the scene and see Eric Stonestreet discuss the possibility of a Mitch and Cam wedding on a recent appearance on The Ellen Show, AFTER THE JUMP...

Jeffrey Richman, one of the show's openly gay writers, tells THR how it went down:

As I started writing, I became unexpectedly emotional. I teared up writing it. I teared up hearing it read. And I completely teared up seeing that moment where they both just say "yes" at the exact same time. That was so moving for me. I felt like, "OK, maybe I got it right because I never cry at weddings." My boyfriend [actor John Benjamin Hickey] always reads the first draft and he called me in tears after he read this one.
