Beauty and the Beast will be enchanting audiences worldwide this weekend — except for Malaysia, which has decided to postpone the film's release to conduct an "internal review."
The live-action Disney remake was set to open on Thursday in the Southeast Asian country, but has been put on hold over controversy sparked by the story's portrayal of a gay character.
Earlier this month, it was reported that a theater banned screening the film because Josh Gad's LeFou had more than you're average guy crush on Gaston (Luke Evans), and had *GASP* an "exclusively gay moment" at the end of the film.
For a chat with London's Sunday Times, the A-lister revealed that she was never "hiding" anything about her romantic past and/or sexual orientation. She explained:
"I wasn't hiding anything. I didn't talk about my first relationships that went public because I wanted things that are mine to be mine. I hated it that details of my life were being turned into a commodity and peddled around the world. But considering I had so many eyes on me, I suddenly realized [my private life] affects a greater number of people than just me. It was an opportunity to surrender a bit of what was mine, to make even one other person feel good about themselves."
Very fair. In fact, after the scrutiny she faced while dating Robert Pattinson, KStew became at odds with the public. The 26-year-old continued:
