Happy Birthday Eric Stonestreet! Or belated birthday as the case may be. Yesterday the Modern Family star turned 41, and hopefully he celebrated with a Wizard of Oz themed soiree (at least, that’s how I celebrated mine).
It’s hard not to fall in love with Eric and his Modern Family character, Cameron Tucker. The bright smile, boisterous laugh, and big personality of both men warms American’s heart. But what makes us love Eric is his ability to portray a flamboistrous ( and dare I say FABULOUS) gay man while being straight (something very few actors can accomplish). You can’t help but watch him and Mitch (Jessie Tyler Ferguson) and think “Damn, I want that.” If they can’t convince politicians to legalize gay marriage, then I don’t know who can!
Like Cam, I can’t hide my excitementÂ and enthusiasm. (It’s who we are! We can’t just turn it off!) So you can imagine the fun I had searching for GIFS of my favorite faux gay man and, incidentally, preparing for the season four premiere on September 26 Â (an hour of Cam-isms. Get excited people!)
So here’s to you Eric! May your 41st year be as amazing as these animated pics.
Enjoy these and feel free to share your own in the comments!
