Emmy Award-winning actor Eric Stonestreet dropped by HuffPost Live this week, where he sounded off on his gay “Modern Family” character, Cam Tucker.

Although he is straight, Eric Stonestreet said playing a gay role on such a high-profile TV series has garnered him admiration from male fans.

“I’m a type… Jesse [Tyler Ferguson] and I call Cam a ‘bossy, fussy bottom,’” he joked. “Now, what I get is a lot of guys who come up and want to challenge my sexuality.”

On a more serious note, Eric Stonestreet said that while playing Cam on “Modern Family” for five seasons didn’t change the way he thought about the community, he nonetheless has “more compassion and more empathy” for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people than he did before the show.
