Luke Evans Talks About Being Single & Keeping His Life Private

Luke Evans shows off his newly blonde hair in a photo shoot for Mr Porter.

Here is what the 37-year-old The Girl on the Train actor shared with the mag:

On being single: He treats the single life as an opportunity for “finding contentment with myself, and not relying on anybody else to validate it. I think being an only child has hindered that slightly, because I’ve always wanted to be around other people.”

On avoiding the topic of his sexuality: “If somebody talks to me about my personal life, well, the clue is in the title: it’s personal, it’s private. I’m protecting myself, not because it’s anything that I’m embarrassed about, but because it’s mine.”

    He’s still ashamed of being gay. Poor guy.

    only supporting tv actors come out

  • Nath

    He never was ashamed of it. You don’t know what you’re talking about.

    I love he’s not in a hurry to find someone. I’m so tired of people being so pushy about someone finding a sole mate. Like being single is the worst thing in the entire world! You go Luke! :)

  • Dee

    he originally was very public about it, then he had all traces of it erased from the net…..

  • Lucas

    Its on his wikipedia page. It’s not hidden and talked about in nearly every article he’s the topic of. Being private isn’t being ashamed.

  • Dee

    his wiki originally didnt have it, it use to say he was in a long term relationship w/ his female PR lady… for a LONG time. its not that he was private or ashamed of it, its that he didnt want it to effect his career.

  • Nath

    It’s not because of shame. He was young and unknown when he did coming out. It’s understandable that he wants to keep his personal life private when he’s famous actor now.
    “then he had all traces of it erased from the net” It’s not true. His “Advocate” interview always was there and everyone could find and read it.

  • Nath

    Do you realise that everyone can edit Wiki pages?

  • Dee

    yes, ive edited wiki pages. i was replying to someone who brought it up. also, can see in articles he went to events with her and introduced her as his girlfriend. Holly Goodchild was her name…

  • Dee

    he could get rid of that, and it was the only thing out there… you would acctually have to search for it. to know. and as i said before, it wasnt shame, it was to protect his career. he came out after doing his first real big budged leading movie … the dracula one, cuz he obviously felt stable in his career.

  • xyz

    U dont know how rite u are

  • Nath

    So what? He can’t appear with women at events? He never said that Holly is his girlfriend. All the rest is irrelevant. Holly is his longtime friend. And she was with him at the Olivier Awards this year, by the way. When people like you leave him alone and let him be?!

  • Dee

    lol why are u defensive of him? yes, she was presented as his girlfriend. I dont think i said anything offensive to get u all ruffled. ive been a fan of his forever, he obviously hid his sexuality for his career, and he obviously had a staged coming out w/ his boyfriend when he felt his career was secure. that is what happened. idc how u want to spin it, im not saying he did anything wrong. that is just wut it is.

    You aren’t obligated to talk about your private life or sexuality. Sexuality isn’t always black or white. He described himself as bicurious at one point. I bet he satisfied that curiousity at least once.

    He never actually said she was his girlfriend. Since he started doing movies he’s never actually refers to any girlfriend/boyfriend. He speaks in generalities. He once was open, now he says it’s none of your business. Nothing wrong with changing how much you share with people.

  • Dee

    nothing wrong with anything he did or anything i said,
