Lee Pace Happily Owns Being Part of the 'Queer Community'

Lee Pace is opening up about his sexuality in a new series of tweets after he was asked to label himself in an awkward interview recently.

The 38-year-old actor – best known for roles in Pushing Daisies, The Hobbit series, and Halt and Catch Fire – was reportedly flustered by W Magazine‘s question in an interview posted last week.

“I’ve dated men. I’ve dated women,” Lee said. “I don’t know why anyone would care. I’m an actor and I play roles. To be honest, I don’t know what to say—I find your question intrusive.”

Now, Lee is speaking out on Twitter to clarify that he happily owns being a “member of the queer community”

    I loved him in the “miss pettigrew” movie. People need to stop worrying about actors’ bedroom matters and just watch the damn movie.

    Love him so much! I’m still salty about the Pushing Daisies cancellation btw…

  • Ram

    good for him. hey lee, you’re hot, you’re talented — and if you’re gay/bisexual/straight you’re still all that before it, and we love you!

  • Ram

    I am SHOCKED that show hasnt been brought back to life (ha) by Netflix. Shocked. I thought that was one that would be a no-brainer!

  • Ram

    we’re lucky in ‘western world’ countries. international appeal is huge because it makes more money. people can still be executed in some countries for being gay. its unfortunate, but its getting better and progressing. seeing openly gay athletes compete on the world’s stage at the olympics gives me some hope

    Not really a surprise as Ian McKellan outed him, Luke Evans and Richard Armitage years ago in an interview and many assumed Lee and Richard are/were a couple because of the amount of time they spent together and wore the same clothes.

  • Reilly

    You aren’t wrong but unfortunately with all the negative comments towards those who have come out, especially recently, it shows that while it’s got better, there is still a long way to go.

  • Just Saying

    Imma start some petitions xD!!!

  • Ram

    I’ll sign!! :) :)
