Paul Iacono: I'm Gay
Hard Times of RJ Berger star Paul Iacono just revealed that he’s gay.
The 23-year-old actor came out publicly in an interview on Wednesday (April 11) with The Village Voice while promoting his new show , Kenzie’s Scale, where he plays one half of a homosexual college couple living in New York City.
“I’m rolling with the punches here,” Paul explained. “I was asked if I was comfortable doing gay press. I said ‘Of course.’ I didn’t think I’d be coming out. But why not now? I think it’s the right time to say something. It’s not about me, it’s about change and the work.”
Paul went on to say that growing up, he struggled with coming to terms with his sexuality. “I tried coming out a couple of times as a kid, from 13-14 on, and was always squashed on,” he shared.
