Noah Galvin is getting a mixed response over a super candid new interview.
The 22-year-old Real O’Neals star opened up to Vulture about his experience as a gay man playing a gay character on television. Here’s what he had to share:
On closeted gay men in Hollywood: “There was a kid who guested on our show. He was flirting with me so blatantly, to the point where he asked me out a few times. At one point I turned to him and was like, Are you gay? And he was like, Well … I don’t know. I’m more like, go with the flow. And I was like, Shut the f-ck up. Get out of my face with your wishy-washy bullshit answer. You’re a fucking f–ot. Like, I know you are. You know you are. Stop beating around the bush. Just go make out with me in my dressing room.”
On the portrayal of gays on screen: “Are you trying to get me to throw somebody under the bus right now? Because I’ve thrown Eric Stonestreet under the bus a solid seven times this week. No, I think as wonderful of an actor as Eric Stonestreet is — I’ve never met him, I assume he’s a wonderful guy — he’s playing a caricature of a caricature of a stereotype of stereotype on Modern Family. And he’s a straight man in real life. And as hilarious as that character is, there’s a lack of authenticity. I think people — especially young gay kids — they can laugh at it, and they can see it as a source of comedy, but like, nothing more than that. And I want Kenny to be more than the funny gay kid.”
On Colton Haynes coming out: “The worst…But you know he talked about coming out. He didn’t actually say he was gay. That’s not coming out. That’s f-cking p-ssy bullshit. That’s like, enough people assume that I sleep with men, so I’m just going to slightly confirm the fact that I’ve sucked a dick or two. That’s not doing anything for the little gays but giving them more masturbation material.”
