Innerested in hearing about Kevin Spacey's sexuality?
During an interview with Kevin Sessums for the Daily Beast, Spacey SORT OF opens up about his sexuality.
Here are some highlights of the conversation from Kevin…
Spacey on why he hasn't publicly claimed himself as a gay man:
Look, I might have lived in England for the last several years but I'm still an American citizen and I have not given up my right to privacy.
More on why his sexuality is a private matter for him:
…People have different reasons for the way they live their lives. You cannot put everyone's reasons in the same box. It's just a line I've never crossed and never will.
Spacey on why he doesn't feel he's living a lie by not announcing his sexuality publicly:
I don't live a lie. You have to understand that people who choose not to discuss their personal lives are not living a lie. That is a presumption that people jump to.
And here's Kevin on why he feels that sexuality IS an important issue and should be discussed:
Look, I think finally this is a very important issue to be discussed. I do. Mainly because of how sad it is that young people in this country—and even around the world where they don't have the freedoms and rights we do—are being subjected to the kinds of abuse they are being subjected to. That's what is shameful.
We certainly agree that it's an important issue that needs to be discussed. Other than that, we agree that it's Kevin's decision as to whether or not he wants to publicly announce his sexuality.
Admittedly, we think it'd be wonderful if he embraced his sexuality publicly, so that we'd have another open, celebrity icon for gay youth to look up to, but let's be honest…he's made it pretty clear what his sexuality is.
