Lee Pace: “I’ve dated men. I’ve dated women. I don’t know why anyone would care”

Anyone paying attention would not be surprised that actor Lee Pace of Pushing Daisies and The Hobbit fame is not heterosexual.

It’s not something this gifted actor, who is playing Joe Pitt in the Broadway revival of Tony Kushner’s iconic play Angels in America, has ever wanted to talk about directly.

But Pace was asked about his sexual orientation in a recent interview with Wmagazine.

Via Towleroad:

The last time Pace was on Broadway was in a revival of another classic gay play, Larry Kramer’s The Normal Heart, which like Angels takes place at the onset of the AIDS crisis. “Our understanding of what it means to be gay is just so different,” Pace said of the climate in 2018. “It’s culturally different. It’s just so much further down the road. It’s an interesting thing for me to think about in this moment while working on this play.”

Pace added that he feels it’s important for gay actors to play the gay roles in both plays, but stopped short of labeling himself. He seemed a bit flustered and surprised by the question. “I’ve dated men. I’ve dated women,” he explained. “I don’t know why anyone would care. I’m an actor and I play roles. To be honest, I don’t know what to say—I find your question intrusive.”
