Eric Stonestreet Answers Whether He Was Drunk At The AMAs On 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' (VIDEO)

Eric Stonestreet certainly made a memorable presentation at the "American Music Awards" Sunday night. There was a lot of online speculation that the "Modern Family" star might have been drunk during his appearance, but Stonestreet was quick to clarify on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" Monday night.

"I was not drunk! I was tipsy! There’s a difference," he insisted.

But that was before he saw the footage.

"Not drunk? Just tipsy, then?" Kimmel asked him again, after showing the clip.

"Yeah, yeah. Totally," he said. "But, boy, that’s the first time I saw it and, wow, is that guy drunk or what?"

Catch a more sober version of Eric Stonestreet every Wednesday at 9 p.m. ET on "Modern Family," while "Jimmy Kimmel Live" is on at 12 a.m. ET every weeknight; both on ABC.
