The web exploded this weekend with reports that the flawless Charlize Theron was dating the funny Eric Stonestreet, but the Modern Family actor was quick to squash the hearsay.
One may well be Hollywood's most bankable blonde, an actress known for her endless legs and charisma.
Add to that pictures of Charlize and Eric cuddled up at a recent awards ceremony, and celeb watchers were beginning to think they'd stumbled on an unlikely new couple.
And Eric, who plays a gay father on the cult comedy show, tweeted followers to comment on their 'romance'.
Hosting this year's star-studded ceremony was John Cena and Victoria Justice, with a performance by Serayah and Charlie Puth.
But is this funnyman really romancing the Snow White and the Huntsman star? Stonestreet took to Twitter to clear up the false report, writing, "I wish people would stop spreading rumors that Charlize Theron and I are dating. This weekend, reports hit the web that Charlize Theron, 37, and Eric Stonestreet, 41, were dating.
