Matt Damon is opening up about his thoughts on gay actors being open about their sexuality in Hollywood.
“I don’t want to, like [imply] it’s some sort of disease – then it’s like I’m throwing my friends under the bus,” Matt added. “But at the time, I remember thinking and saying, Rupert Everett was openly gay and this guy – more handsome than anybody, a classically trained actor – it’s tough to make the argument that he didn’t take a hit for being out.”
“I think it must be really hard for actors to be out publicly,” Matt continued. “But in terms of actors, I think you’re a better actor the less people know about you period. And sexuality is a huge part of that. Whether you’re straight or gay, people shouldn’t know anything about your sexuality because that’s one of the mysteries that you should be able to play.”
