Modern Family’s Eric Stonestreet draws inspiration for his camp character Cameron Tucker from an unusual source – his mum.
“I sort of grounded the character in my mum – she loves it, loves every square inch of it!” Eric laughed, speaking during a break from filming the mockumentary-style comedy in Hollywood.
“Playing other characters, people would always say I reminded them of my brother or my dad or whatever so it was a real treat to be able to say ‘not only did I get the part, but mum I based the character a little bit on you’ and she was like ‘oh my god!’”

Ed O’Neill, beefy star of ABC sitcom “Modern Family,” says there’s nothing wrong with being overweight.

“I think you’re worse off being too thin,” says O’Neill, 63, who has a black belt in Brazilian-style jujitsu. “To be overweight is not that unhealthy. You see those Midwestern waitresses, strong as bulls, they live until they’re in their 90s. Hollywood is so obsessed with thin that it is a sickness.”

O’Neill, whose most famous TV role was the uncouth Al Bundy on “Married With Children,” is not into low-cal treats. “Health food ice cream?” he asks. “Why even eat it?”

His idea of health food? “I like wine,” he says proudly.
