Chelsea Handler says to “Glee” star Chris Colfer: “We all know you’re gay” and he confirms it.
Well, it wasn’t exactly like getting a “Yep, I’m Gay” cover on People or Time magazine but adorable Glee star Chris Colfer confirmed on Thursday night’s Chelsea Lately show that he not only plays a gay character on TV, but he’s also gay in real life.
Host Chelsea Handler kicked things off by saying: “Your character is gay, and we know you’re gay.”
Advocate.com reports that Colfer replied with a faint ‘yes’ to both assertions.
Said Chelsea: “Don’t be shy about that, because there was all of that hubbub before.”
In an interview with USA Today last month, Chris said he doesn’t want to discuss his sexuality: ‘I try to keep up a mystery. As much as I give away of my personal life, the less people will believe me as other characters. I try to be private about it. It is what it is.”
When I interviewed Chris at the TV Critics Association’s Summer Press Tour, he seemed a bit vague about his sexuality. I did not come straight out and ask him if he was gay but tried to lead him there a few times with my questions and he didn’t bite. Here is a LINK to that interview.
.I’m glad he decided to bite when asked directly by Chelsea who then spoke about how Colfer’s being openly gay can help hundreds of other gay people.
Chris said playfully, “My answer to that question was, prior to coming out, that I was as straight as every other actor in Hollywood.”
This kid is terrific!
