Talking About the Naughty Bits with Eric Stonestreet of ‘Modern Family
Are you amazed at the reaction to you guys?
I would say I’m not amazed at the non-reaction, meaning the sort of people having a problem with it. But we are all amazed at how open and generous and kind people are at how our relationship and the show has affected their lives. I thought people would be like, “Oh, I really like your show,” not, “Your show has given me something to look forward to every week, thank you for being able to see myself on TV for the first time.” It’s just really over and above nice compliments. That 100 percent has been surprising.
You raised pigs. Any pig raising tips?
Pigs don’t have sweat glands, so you have to give them a nice place to cool off. That’s why pigs wallow in mud, to cool down. You never want to get between a momma pig and her baby because she will protect her young. I got charged by a pig growing up and she bit my belt buckle off of my jeans — that’s how close she got to getting my naughty bits.
