More like Van HANDSOME, arewerite?

Van Hansis just sat down for a super revealing interview with The Fight, and we think some of the things the actor said about being gay in Hollywood will really blow your mind!

Though the As the World Turns star has been open about his sexuality with his friends and family since he was a teenager, he found it much harder to be openly gay in a professional capacity. Basically, he was a struggling actor afraid of agents and casting directors who might typecast him!

Van admitted:

"I was completely green, fresh out of college, and honestly, I was scared."

But now he's very well known throughout the LGBT community for the groundbreaking mano-en-mano storylines on his soap.

Yes, the infamous Noah and Luke. Of that relationship, Van admitted:

"I think there were long time fans who started off not liking the storyline for the gay content of it who were won over by the love story—indeed, at the time I got a lot of mail saying such—and Luke and Noah helped change and shape their views about the LGBT community… As far as making history at the time—I knew because I was being told that by people who knew the world—I had never watched soaps, so the historical part of the show didn’t truly resonate until I started getting response from people whose lives the story changed. I didn’t really get the weight of it at the time."

Ugh! Not only is the 32-year-old superstar almost painfully hot, but he's an inspiration to the entire LGBT community!
