39 Times Actors Refused To Kiss Their Costar On Camera
Eric Stonestreet Wouldn’t Kiss Jesse Tyler Ferguson On Modern Family‘s First Season
Modern Family has been praised for showing an LGBTQ couple on primetime network television, and Cam and Mitchell’s relationship on the show is definitely a step in the right direction. Still, the couple didn’t kiss at all during the show’s first season, reportedly because straight actor Eric Stonestreet was too uncomfortable with kissing a man at first. And despite multiple references to straight couple Phil and Claire Dunphy’s healthy sex life, there still hasn’t been even really a reference to Mitchell and Cam’s sex life on the show. For a show heralded as progressive, it’s actually pretty repressed in regards to its LGBTQ characters.
