In the piece, he opened up about an experience at an Emmys party five years ago, where an unnamed gay man he worked with chastised him three separate times for acting too effeminate.

“I was told that I needed to ‘get it under control’ around people in the business,” he revealed.

While waiting at the valet, he ran into the co-worker again and asked him for clarification. Instead, the man slapped Charlie across the face.

“It wasn’t playful but intentional, pointed and meant to be instructive. A slap. I told him that if he ever touched me again, I would name him,” he went on to say.

“That was the moment when I said to myself, ‘I can’t do this. I cannot police myself in that way.’”
