Cheyenne Jackson: “My biggest journey in life really is the journey of being comfortable in my skin and in my body”
The talented and gorgeous Cheyenne Jackson is on the cover of the latest digital issue of The Advocate.
Here are some excerpts:
On finding himself: “Growing up queer, different, in the little town that I did in northern Idaho, I just always knew that I didn’t belong. I never felt like these were my people. It never felt like home to me. Once I started to find my people in community theater, I started to really feel ok in my skin. My biggest journey in life really is the journey of being comfortable in my skin and in my body. At 47 years old, it’s still a daily struggle for me.”
On raising children with husband Jason Landau: “It is the hardest job I’ve ever had,” he says. “Jay and I are pushed to the limit because we are extremely hands on and that’s how we want it. We are there for every single bedtime, for every single meal, every high and every low. You’re not raising kids, you’re raising humans.”
On marriage: “We work really hard at [our relationship] and it doesn’t come easily,” Jackson says. “You have to be willing to have those conversations and sit in those uncomfortable moments. It’s hard to feel vulnerable and you really have to put yourself out there.”
