Jonathan Groff Calls Out Madonna for Texting at His Show

Jonathan Groff looks sexier than ever in this new photo shoot for

Here is what the 30-year-old Hamilton actor had to share with the site:

On doing sex scenes: “It’s so funny to me, because doing a gay sex scene and doing a straight sex scene—except for the different equipment—is the same. Although Russell did f–k me in the show, so I guess that’s a little different. And I f–ked him too, yeah. But for me, sex scenes are more about intimacy than they are about sexuality. It’s all about the chemistry you have with the other person, whether that person is a man or a woman.”

On his family’s reaction to his coming out: “They were shocked when I told them. It took them a while. They just couldn’t understand it. They didn’t shun me or anything like that. They’ve met my boyfriends. I took one of my boyfriends home for Christmas a couple of years ago, and they bought him a present. My dad did tell me that he started to feel really bad because he used to make fun of guys in high school for being sissies, and now he has a son who’s gay.”

On Madonna seeing his show Hamilton: “That bitch was on her phone. You couldn’t miss it from the stage. It was a black void of the audience in front of us and her face there perfectly lit by the light of her iPhone through three-quarters of the show.”

    Oh shut up you little A-hole!! Madge can do whatever she damn-well pleases! When you have a resume like her someday (although I doubt you will, your 15 minutes is up in 4….3…..2) you can bitch like a BIG girl then!!!!!

  • Mrs. Freeze

    Madonna is known for her very rude behavior during other people’s live performances.

  • Henrique

    No she can’t do whatever she wants. She can have a big resume, but that’s no excuse to be rude with other people.

    So, it’s okay for a D-list actor to call a woman the B word and nobody scroffs at this? Texting during a play is rude, but misogyny is worse, especially since it is accepted by the mainstream still.

  • Scottie Is An Idiot

    He is using her name to get himself publicity. He is obviously right about the issue, but that’s not why he is bringing it up in the first place.

  • annibella

    maybe his play sucks, its not her fault you suck at acting.
    the whiny bitch should be grateful she was at his play.

  • Mrs. Freeze

    Other performers have also brought this up because Madonna has behaved just like this at other shows.

  • itsok

    Okay so Madonna comes to your show… and you are who? At least show some class, who give you the right to call her a B*****. Women dont like that or dont you know that! or maybe you do! If you have her on your speed dial give her a ring, be cool about it though. Dont be crass & blow her up in the media (yawn). And werent you supposed to be working?! How did you catch that! :) (okay Madonna but still – ewwww- so crass lol) Anyway you will be treated as you deserve remember that the next time you through a b***** fit. Peace.

    Hamilton the the biggest show to hit Broadway in the last decade. In this case it was when the show was off-Broadway. It’s been nothing but lauded. It’s been a hot ticket, people desperate to see the show. The list of people who’d been to see the show at the point was insane including Michelle Obama, who saw the show with very little fuss of security or anything. Madonna was lucky enough to get tickets because of who she is, and then was rude enough to sit there text through most of the show. Just no. You don’t do that at a theater, it’s bad manners to even have your phone on. She wanted to come backstage after and was refused access after the shows creator noticed her behavior. She was called on twitter by several people who were in the audience after the show too. At the very least you have respect for other artists work.

  • Scarlett

    You have no idea what Hamilton is do you?

  • Juan S. Camargo Visbal

    Wait he and Russell had actual sex filming the show?! Brb…

    He coulda made his point across without calling her a bitch. Madonna is an icon and a living legend. She’s also done a lot for the gay community and the fight agains aids. How the hell is this extra from Glee gonna address her like she’s some jo schmo?!!! He needs to stay in his lane!
