I think, as an actor, the challenge is to choose wisely. And, you know, say "no" more than you say "yes."
What I know is true is that there is no shame in being gay. Love does not understand gender.
I don't care if people think I'm gay. Gender is of no consequence to me. It's a person's brain that counts.
[on sex scenes with another woman] It's nothing to be ashamed of. I genuinely enjoy doing them, and I think that women are lovely and generous. There's an intangible feeling and a comfort level that is beautiful.
