Eric Stonestreet sighs slightly when asked if some people are disappointed at finding out he’s not gay like the flamboyant character he plays with such zeal on Modern Family.

Some devoted fans of the TV sitcom have criticized him on Twitter for cussing or doing things they believe his character Cameron Tucker wouldn’t.

Others who maintain they can’t see him as anyone but Cam even said they were surprised to see him in this summer’s Bad Teacher, a raunchy comedy about a foul-mouthed, junior high school teacher played by Cameron Diaz.

“That’s the sort of thing I’ve got to stop caring about,” said Stonestreet, 39, who will be hosting a show at Montreal’s Just For Laughs comedy festival next week.

“People are disappointed sometimes but I hope they understand that I’m an actor playing a character. They love the character and they might like me too if they give me a chance.”
