"Snow White and the Huntsman" actress Charlize Theron is reportedly dating "Modern Family" star Eric Stonestreet.

Stonestreet, 41, began dating Theron, 37, after the pair was set up by mutual friends.

"Charlize and Eric get along incredibly well," a source close to Theron told Daily Mail. "They started off as friends but things are blossoming between them. Eric is down to earth and funny and Charlize thinks the world of him. It's early days but they're very fond of each other."

Theron ended an eight-plus year relationship with her "Trapped" co-star Stuart Townsend in 2010. The former couple also appeared together in 2004's "Head In The Clouds."

Theron later adopted an African-American boy, Jackson, in May of this year after a two year adoption process.
The South African actress won an Academy Award in 2003 for her portrayal of serial killer Aileen Wuornous in "Monster."

Theron headlined this year's "Snow White and the Huntsman" playing the Evil Queen with Kristen Stewart. She also played the lead in last year's indie "Young Adult."

Stonestreet ended a longterm relationship with Katherine Tokarz earlier this year. Tokarz was a red carpet fixture and always attended premieres with the ABC star.

In 2010, Stonestreet won a  Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series for his role as an openly gay man, Cameron Tucker, on ABC's hit comedy "Modern Family."

Stonestreet and his onscreen partner, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, play a gay couple with an adopted Chinese girl. The mixed family live together in the suburbs.

"He is so game for this character," said Ferguson, who is gay in real-life. "He is straight. He is so game for his character," he told OUT.

Stonestreet made headlines recently when he was rumored to have been kicked out of a Dodgers game on Sept. 15.
The "Modern Family" star cleared up the rumors on Twitter the following day.

"I did not get kicked out of the Dodgers game last night. Did I get escorted to the top of the stairs by security? Yes," the 41-year-old tweeted. "Yes I sure did."

According to TMZ, Stonestreet had an argument with a St. Louis Cardinals fan during a game at the Dodgers Stadium in Los Angeles. Security asked Stonestreet and the Cardinals fan to leave due to the disruption.

A publicist for the Dodgers told TMZ the Emmy winner was not kicked out.
