Jesse Tyler Ferguson Steps Out With New Beau
By Christine Fenno Posted Jan 29th 2011 07:58AM
The couple were spotted walking the red carpet hand in hand at Elle's Women in Television event in West Hollywood, according to Us. Mikita reportedly told other guests he'd also be accompanying Ferguson to this weekend's SAG Awards.
"Jesse and Justin were inseparable all night," said a source on the scene.
Ferguson, who is openly gay (and active in PFLAG and the Trevor Project according to recent tweets), mentioned his "plus-one" on Twitter, although he has not yet confirmed the relationship: "So @justinmikita and I are at the Elle Women in TV party..."
Mikita's acting credits include 1999's 'Can't Be Heaven' (a low-budget Michelle Trachtenberg-Ralph Macchio film that was renamed 'Forever Together' for its 2000 DVD release).
'Modern Family' co-star Sofia Vergara was being honored at Thursday's Elle event, where actress Judy Greer, 'The Office' star Mindy Kaling, 'Boardwalk Empire' beauty Paz de la Huerta and TV presenter Maria Menounos also appeared.
Until now, Ferguson, a native of New Mexico, has been relatively private about who he's dating. In this recent clip (from a broadcast earlier this month), the actor reminisced with talk-show host George Lopez about his past -- make that distant past -- dating females, and exactly how he decided that women were just "too much drama."
