It's starting to make Halle Berry jealous." PHOTOS: What all the stars wore to the 2012 Emmy Awards Though Berry, 46, is engaged to French actor Olivier Martinez, 46, that didn't stop Stonestreet from having a little fun.
"She was so cold to me this morning when she saw these rumors," he said of the Stonestreet added that he "would love to know" why anyone would link him to Theron, who split with actor Stuart Townsend in 2010 after nine years together and apparently hasn't had a serious relationship since.
Reps for Theron and Stonestreet did not return Celebuzz’s request for comment.
One may well be Hollywood's most bankable blonde, an actress known for her endless legs and charisma.
Armytage added: “Don’t believe everything you read in the paper. Stonestreet debunked the report on Twitter, telling his followers, “I wish people would stop spreading rumors that Charlize Theron and I are dating.
“Can I say publicly that Samantha has denied any allegations of a romance, it was just a five-hour lunch,” co-host David Koch said, coming to her aid. It was a lovely lunch.” Back in 2012, rumors swirled that Stonestreet was dating South African actress Charlize Theron.
Given that Stonestreet and his longtime love Katherine Torkaz broke up earlier this summer, the actor invited a pal to be his plus one at the Emmy Awards.
"I brought my best friend, Paul, who looks nothing at all like Charlize Theron," Stonestreet said.
The pair split in 2010 after nearly a decade together.
Stonestreet, who is up for a Primetime Emmy award for Best Supporting Actor on Sunday night, recently split from Broadway star Katherine Tokarz.
