Well this must have been an awkward interview! Kevin Spacey was interviewed by an openly gay reporter from The Daily Beast to promote his new movie, Casino Jack, and I bet that he was a bit surprised by some of the questions he was asked! The interviewer asked Spacey;
“We gay men have always proudly claimed you as a member of our tribe, and yet you don’t proudly claim us back,” “Why?”
Um, wow, ok. I’m sure Spacey was a bit taken aback by the question, and he responded with;
“Look, I might have lived in England for the last several years, but I’m still an American citizen and I have not given up my right to privacy,”
“People have different reasons for the way they live their lives. You cannot put everyone’s reasons in the same box. It’s just a line I’ve never crossed and never will.”
Well you have to respect that, although I’m still not sure if he’s confirmed that he’s gay or not! He went on to say that;
“I don’t live a lie,” “You have to understand that people who choose not to discuss their personal lives are not living a lie. That is a presumption that people jump to.
“Look, at the end of the day, people have to respect people’s differences. I am different than some people would like me to be. I just don’t buy into that the personal can be political. I just think that’s horses–t. No one’s personal life is in the public interest. It’s gossip, bottom line. End of story.
Hmmm, I still wonder though if he is gay why not just admit it? Do you think that if you refuse to acknowledge your sexuality publicly that you are living a lie, or do you think that it really is none of our business and no one should care who he chooses to sleep with?
