‘Modern Family’ Star Eric Stonestreet Reveals The Epic Moustache Prank He Played On His Girlfriend

“Modern Family” star Eric Stonestreet is quite the prankster.

Stonestreet appeared on Thursday’s “Ellen DeGeneres Show”, where he revealed how he’d tricked his girlfriend Lindsay Schweitzer many, many times.

One of his best pranks involved a crazy moustache and the “Modern Family” team.

“She hated it [the moustache]. Then I convinced her that ‘Modern Family’, the writers, they saw my moustache and they loved it.

“And they said, ‘You know what? We want Cam to have that moustache in the season premiere.'”

Stonestreet continued, “I had the creator Chris Lloyd, one of our executive producers send me fake emails saying, ‘Here’s our story ideas for the moustache.’ She’s like, ‘You have gotta be kidding me.’

“The night before ‘Modern Family’ started, I got up in the middle of the night and shaved it off. And then just woke up and she wakes up in the morning and looks at me like, ‘Your moustache is gone.’ I’m like, ‘What? Are you kidding me? Are you serious? What do you mean? Oh, my God! I sleep-shaved!'”
