Did Ian McKellen Out A 'Hobbit' Co-Star?
A German interview stemming back to 2012 that's only surfacing now depicts Hobbit star Sir Ian McKellen perhaps outing a co-star.
“Just look only how many openly gay actors in the Hobbit with were: two of the dwarves, to Luke Evans, Stephen Fry, Lee Pace," McKellen told a German publication in a 2012 interview that's just now surfacing. "In The Lord of the Rings I was the only one next to it there was my make-up artist and one from the wardrobe team. That’s only once a progress, right?”
Evans, Fry and Pace have all been known to be gay or flirted with coming out in public, but the only, singular actor who plays a dwarf in the film to have come out publicly as gay is Adam Brown. Thanks for confirming Lee as one of us, Ian, but that still leaves 12 dwarves for us to guess from in addition to Adam. Our money (based entirely on wishful thinking) is on Dean O'Gorman, but basically just because he's as sexy in his dwarf gear as he is out of it.
Whoever the sexy gay dwarf is, welcome to the club! Your fruit basket (we've got to think of a welcoming gift that's less tongue-in-cheek!) and your 2014 Homosexual Agenda are in the mail.
