Alan Cumming Vs. Richard Chamberlain

Filed under: Gay Gay GayRupert Everett

alan cumming vs richard chamberlain

Following in the footsteps of Will & Grace co-creator Max Mutchnick, gay actor Alan Cumming has put actor Richard Chamberlain in his place.

While he may be gay himself, Chamberlain advises gay actors to stay in the closet due to the "tremendous amount of homophobia in our culture."

Alan does NOT agree. Here's what he said in response:

"I think it's so mean-spirited. If you're living a lie, that's not healthy, and I think it is really irresponsible of [Chamberlain]…to say these things."

Alan ALSO slams Rupert Everett, who shares Chamberlain's views about gay actors playing heterosexuals.

More from Alan:

"It's not about your work… It's about how you exist as a person in the world, and the idea that your work is more important than you as a person is a horrible, horrible message. I always think about a little gay boy in Wisconsin or a little lesbian in Arkansas seeing someone like me, and if I cannot be open in my life, how on earth can they? Anyway, it's an academic question: how can you know [that coming out affects your career]? Some people get less work than others, and it has nothing to do with sexuality."

Right on, Alan! We LOVE what you're saying here and we wholeheartedly agree!

We Love You Jane Lynch, But We Disagree

we love you jane but we disagree

Last week, Will & Grace co-creator Max Mutchnick spoke about gay actors playing straight roles, and said that he does NOT think audiences are "as homophobic as the media would have us believe."

Glee's Jane Lynch seems to have a much different opinion.

Here's what she had to say on the subject:

"I don’t know when or if [gay actors in leading roles] will ever happen. I think because since most of the world is straight — and maybe we'll get to a place where this will happen — most of the world is straight and we want the audience to project their hopes and dreams for love and romance onto those actors. And if it’s not in some way possible, maybe never probably, in their mind that it could never happen, then they're not going to do it. You know, most people are straight, and I think that’s probably why…. This is a business of projection and desiring people from afar. And watching people go through trials and tribulations, so there has got to be some truth to it, in terms of, 'I could see myself with that person.' Because the leading man and lady are the person we want them to fall in love with, and most of the audience is straight. So for right now, we can only use straight actors."

Sorry Jane, but we're with Max on this one. Just look at Neil Patrick Harris! He's straight on How I Met Your Mother, and that show's been on the air since 2005!

Do U think audiences can accept gay actors in straight roles?

Will & Grace Co-Creator Talks, On Gay Actors

will and grace co creator talks about gay actors

Back in December, gay actor Richard Chamberlain advised that other gay actors stay in the closet due to the "tremendous amount of homophobia in our culture."

Will & Grace co-creator Max Mutchnick does NOT agree.

Here's what he had to say in response to Chamberlain's advice:

“I don’t think the audience is as homophobic as the media would have us believe. Neither is Hollywood. I’ve never denied an actor a job because he was gay, but I have denied actors jobs because they suck."

"There is no blacklist that forbids gay actors from playing straight roles. Convince us you’re in love with her and we’ll hire you. And I promise we won’t care who you’re cuddling up with when you’re off camera."

You tell 'em, Mutchnick!

As we said before, hiding the truth is not the answer.
