Hollywood heartthrob Andrew Garfield has come out of the closet—sort of. The English actor currently stars in Tony Kushner’s Angels in America as Prior Walter, a young New York man living with AIDS. During a recent panel discussion about his role, Garfield admitted preparation included watching past seasons of RuPaul’s Drag Race.
"Every Sunday I would have eight friends over and we would just watch Ru," the actor said. "I mean every single series of RuPaul’s Drag Race. I mean every series. This is my life outside of this play. I am a gay man right now just without the physical act—that’s all."
Although The Amazing Spider Man star sets the record straight by insisting he’s not gay, he admits there may be a time in the future when he’s willing to "explore," saying, “As far as I know, I am not a gay man. Maybe I’ll have an awakening later in my life, which I’m sure will be wonderful and I’ll get to explore that part of the garden, but right now I’m secluded to my area, which is wonderful, as well."
