Jared Leto: ‘I definitely don’t think a gay leading man would have the same opportunities as a straight leading man’
Oscar winner Jared Leto gave an interview to GQ Style and talked about the idea of a gay leading man (gasp!) in movies. He says: ‘I definitely don’t think a gay leading man would have the same opportunities as a straight leading man. I don’t think that. Not for a single second. I don’t know if that’s offensive or not, but that’s my thought right now. It shouldn’t be that way. I don’t think you’ll have as many opportunities. And I think you could say the same for minorities. What a word, “minority.” Have we taken that word off the list yet? ‘Cause it should be. Anyway, no, I think that this is still a very conservative business.” Sad, but true. So Hollywood, prove him wrong by giving Matt Bomer, Zachary Quinto, Jussie Smollett, Colton Haynes, Jonathan Groff, Russell Tovey, Cheyenne Jackson and other out and gifted actors some leading roles in feature films!
