Stephen Amell to gay fans: Go ahead, hit on me

Chelsea Handler should not just assume that a hunky straight actor minds being hit on my gay men.

Stephen Amell, star of The CW’s Arrow, taught Chelsea that lesson last night when she oddly said: ‘I just want to clarify that you are straight and people should not hit on you if they’re men.’

Replied Stephen: ‘People can hit on me if they want to.’

The audience cheered.

Stephen talked about playing a gay spin instructor on the Showtime series Queer As Folk and about being on the first season of Dante’s Cove on HERE TV which I was completely hooked on at the time.

Of Dante’s Cove he said: ‘I was the villain because I was the straight character. I couldn’t do the show the second season and in the second season my character went from not gay to really, really, really gay.’

I remember there was a little bit of controversy over Stephen not returning with it being floated that he was uncomfortable with the character being gay.

I was a columnist at the LA Daily News then and Stephen emailed me personally to let me know that it was not true. He had instead signed to do the film Closing the Ring with Shirley MacLaine and Christopher Plummer.

Well, it has certainly all worked out for him in the end!

4 Remarks

  1. I keep up with Stephen Amell thru his Facebook account. He is so active with his fans thru his postings. I consider him one of the most handsome guys on TV. He is a great actor and a pleasure to watch each week on his CW show, Arrow. I even have several of the episodes of “Hung” where he played Jason. He was very funny and “easy” on the eyes. Truly a great guy!

  2. I would hit on him any day! Every day!

  3. I love men like Stephen and James Franco. They just don’t give a sh*t about the stereotypes and are all-accepting for every one of their fans.

  4. He reminds me of my father who is the most hetero man I have ever seen, Has never had a issue with anything gay. It never occurred to him that he should. When I told him I was gay, later bi, he just said it was just like buying a bicycle, just get the brand that is right for you!
