Andrew Rannells says he is a ‘purebred’ gay man: ‘I personally have never had sex with a woman’
He’s played a gay man on stage in The Book of Mormon and plays a gay man on TV in The New Normal.
But on HBO’s Girls, Andrew Rannells is playing a character who is wondering if he might be bisexual instead of gay.
Off screen, Rannells does no such wondering.
‘I personally have never had sex with a woman,’ he tells New York magazine’s Vulture blog. ‘I’m more of what you call gold-star gay. I’m purebred.’
He adds: ‘I knew it wasn’t my thing, so I was like, Why do that? So I didn’t. … I feel like I’m in the minority for a lot of gay men. Most of my friends have tried [having sex with a woman] at some point.’
But Rannells has tried other things he wasn’t really into – like martinis.
‘… At a certain point in my early twenties, I was a guy who drank martinis,’ he says. ‘I hated martinis. But I was going to be that guy. I was going to try that out. It’s silly, but it’s how you figure out who you are.’
