Thank you, Alan Cumming

"I think it's so mean-spirited. If you're living a lie, that's not healthy, and I think it is really irresponsible of Richard and Rupert to say those things. It's about how you exist as a person in the world, and the idea that your work is more important than you as a person is a horrible, horrible message. I always think about a little gay boy in Wisconsin or a little lesbian in Arkansas seeing someone like me, and if I cannot be open in my life, how on earth can they?"

Partially in response to Richard Chamberlain (who needs to go back in the closet), who said recently that he "wouldn't advise a gay leading man-type actor to come out."

  1. Alan Cumming is one of my favorite, favorite actors and human beings. And this is one of the many reasons why.

  2. I've always liked him. And what the hell happened to Rupert Everett?! What a dick he's become.
