Trevante Rhodes Says 'The World Will Benefit' From 'Moonlight' If They See It!

Trevante Rhodes is hot, hot as he shows off his muscular physique on Out magazine‘s March 2017 issue, available on newsstands now!

Here’s what the 27-year-old Moonlight star had to share with the mag:

On Moonlight‘s impact: “It was just the most beautiful thing I’ve ever read. It’s an incredible work of art, and it’s about a very, very marginalized group of people. I’ve had moments with many people who come up to me, red in the face, crying, tearing up because this is their story. They’ve never seen themselves put into a narrative on screen. How am I going to feel that again? I don’t think you can. At the core of it all, you just want to do something that makes someone else feel OK.”

On why Moonlight is so important: “It’s uncharted territory. The fact that it was done, and the fact that it was done so well — that’s just an added benefit of being able to tell a truthful story, a truthful story that hasn’t been seen in the way that it’s now been seen. Hopefully I’ll continue to do great work, but to do great work that’s never been done? That’s like, we invented fire — the world benefits from that. And I think the world will benefit from the film if they see it. Not just the black community, or the gay community, or the black gay community, but, fuck, the world.”

Moonlight playright Tarell Alvin McCraney on Trevante: “He’s pure joy. He’s full of peace and love.”

    The movie is lackluster due to its incompleteness. It is in a hurry to get nowhere. Aside from inducing a collective and maybe much needed nap, the world viewing this movie will perhaps compel us to want higher quality “importance” for our money and time. That would be a good thing, so bravo!
