Jane Lynch: Julia Roberts is Gay (Just Kidding!)
Jane and Ellen had a conversation about coming out to the world. Check it:
“You say that but there are a lot of people that are still in the business that are scared to death to do that,” Ellen said. “They would think that it would hurt their career. And, your career is bigger than ever and it hasn’t hurt you at all.”
Jane responded, “And, not just because you’re sitting with me but that’s because of people like you. You were at the height of your fame and you came out. And that just blazed a trail for me. It really did. It made it so much easier for me what you did.” Aww!
Added Jane, ” Let me make another point…this isn’t great news, it’s because I’m a character actor I think. If Julia Roberts were gay I think it would be harder. She’s an ingénue. You want to project your hopes and dreams for love… like Brad Pitt.
“So you’re saying Julia Roberts is gay?” asked Ellen.
Joked Jane, “That’s what I’m saying. Right here on this show. (laughs) She won’t admit it. I’m here to tell you she’s gay. You’re welcome Julia. It’s a push she needed and now she can join us.” Hah!
FYI: Jane is wearing a J. Gerard Design Studio black blouse with pleather applique.
