'Ghostbusters' Debuts at Number Two with $46 Million

Kate McKinnon's 'Ghostbusters' Character Is Gay, Paul Feig Confirms

The sexuality of Kate McKinnon‘s character in Ghostbusters is not addressed in the new movie, but director Paul Feig is now confirming she is gay.

The director was asked by a Daily Beast reporter if Holtzmann is gay and he gave a “grinning, silent nod.”

“I hate to be coy about it,” Paul said. “But when you’re dealing with the studios and that kind of thing…”

“You know, Kate is who she is and I love the relationship between Kate and Melissa‘s characters,” he continued. “I think it’s a very interesting, close relationship. If you know Kate at all she’s this kind of pansexual beast where it’s just like everybody who’s around her falls in love with her and she’s so loving to everybody she’s around. I wanted to let that come out in this character.”

“I wasn’t like, ‘And now you should wink at them.’ This is stuff that is coming out of Kate! That’s why you connect with those characters. They’re playing versions of themselves,” Paul added. “That’s what makes a comedic actor fantastic, when that personality comes out. That’s why it’s so terrible when writer-directors say, ‘Stick to the script!’ Why would you hire these people who have these enormous personalities and then just cut them off?”
