JIMMY KIMMEL and Eric Stonestreet have a friendship you can really sink your teeth into – they’re the founders of their very own Meat Club for Men!
The Emmy-winning star of “Modern Family” and the “Jimmy Kimmel Live” host are so obsessed with red meat they actually send savory cuts of steak to each other by FedEx!
“He has sent me cuts of steak he likes, and I’ve sent him cuts from a place I really like,” Eric, 41, explained in a recent interview. “We’re bringing meat to each other.”
Jimmy, 45, who hosted the 2012 Emmy Awards and recently received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, “is all about flavor and tenderness,” an insider told The ENQUIRER.
“A medium rare porter-house is his idea of heaven. He and Eric once went on a coast-to-coast trip in search of the perfect Chateaubriand.”
And the wacky steak fiends have recently expanded their exclusive meat appreciation society to other close pals and Hollywood carnivores, including Ben Affleck, Matt Damon and Andy Garcia.
“When we first started talking, he knew I was from Kansas City, so he asked me about barbecue and quickly figured out it was a passion of mine,” Eric said. “So when we get each other’s meat, I take a picture of the whole process. Defrosting on the plate, on the grill, bite in the mouth, and he’ll do the same. It’s a play-by-play of the meat.”
The insider added: “These guys are firm believers that real men eat meat. Give them a great steak, a glass of red wine and a Caesar salad and they turn into a couple of wolves!”
