Well that’s nice to hear.
Matt Damon had a bit of a controversy on his hands Monday when reports came out that he thinks that gay actors should stay in the closet to make it in Hollywood.
However, the 44-year-old taped an episode of Ellen set to air Tuesday clarifying that what he actually said was that people of every sexuality should keep their preferences in the closet.
The Martian star defended his statement claiming that his initial comment was taken out of context, saying:
“I was just trying to say actors are more effective when they’re a mystery, right? And somebody picked it up and said I said gay actors should get back in the closet. Which is like, I mean it’s stupid, but it is painful when things get said that you don’t believe. You know what I mean? And then it gets represented that that’s what you believe.”
We were pretty upset when we first heard Matt’s opinions on homosexuality, but his reasoning actually makes sense.
Your sexuality shouldn’t really play a part in the parts you play.
What do U think about Matt’s clarification??
