Eric Dane Says He Keeps Getting Dick Pics And Dirty DMs

June 13, 2022 / Posted by:

Last week, Eric Dane said in an interview that although he’s straight, he can relate to the conflicted feelings of the awful and closeted-gay character he plays on Euphoria and that he hopes his portrayal lends a voice to members of the LGBTQ+ community who may relate. On the latest stop on his “I’m not a gay I just play one on TV” tour, Eric shared that he’s single, and despite being straight, his inbox is a smorgasbord of schwanz and dirty messages from dudes.

Eric was recently on the SiriusXM show, Andy Cohen Live, and got candid about his preDICKament and struggle to meet women with that thirsty Golden Retriever, Andy Cohen. When Andy brought up that Eric’s DMs must be poppin’, Eric said that his inbox is a “dark alley.” Via ET Canada:

“Listen, Andy, that is a dark alley that I don’t go down alone,” Dane explained. “I get lots of dick pics.” Stunned, Cohen asked if Dane also receives “stuff” from women as well. “No, I get dick pics,” the actor retorted. “I think that guys now assume that I’m going the other way [because of ‘Euphoria’], which is fine. I’ve seen a lot of ugly penises. I’ve seen a lot of pretty ones.”

Eric has been the subject of many a fantasy over the years since his stint as McSteamy on Grey’s Anatomy, and with a whole new generation being exposed to him on Euphoria, Andy thought that Eric must be knee-deep in poon, which apparently is not the case.

“I really thought that women must be throwing themselves at you right now,” Cohen told Dane in amazement. “Where do you meet women?”

“I don’t,” the former “Grey’s Anatomy” star said flatly. “I feel, I feel like I don’t ever meet women […] because look, I’m not a dating app guy […] And I think that’s kind of the, where the majority of the meeting happens on these dating apps, the various Rayas […]Tinders, whatever… it’s just weird,” he added. “I’m from the nineties, man. I’m more of a, like, ‘hey, how are you?’ kinda person.

So if you’re looking to shoot your shot with Eric, first and foremost, don’t call him “McSteamy” if you see him out and about.

…Being lusted after by the public is familiar ground for Dane. But being labeled “McSteamy” by “Grey’s” fans was not something he particularly relished, though he admits the moniker has helped his career. “I didn’t mind it,” Dane said of the nickname. “I didn’t like being referred to as McSteamy on the street, but you know, the name was, the name has been very good to me.”

Next, and this is important: have a vagina. That’s an easy one to guess since he’s made sure that we all know that’s his favorite flavor of genital a few times in the past few days. Then, since he’s a “‘hey, how are you?’ kinda person from the nineties, the only feasible mating tactic is to approach him with a loud, startling “how YOU doin’?” a la Joey Tribbiani from Friends, to cover those two bases.  Et voilà! Now you can be the lucky lady that face is looking down on.
