Josh Gad & Bill Condon Talk Gay 'Beauty & The Beast' Character At Film Premiere

Beauty and the Beast director Bill Condon and actor Josh Gad reflected on the decision to make LeFou gay at the film's premiere on Thursday night. 


From Variety:

“It was something we developed as a part of a lot of things about LeFou,” said director Bill Condon. “I’m excited for the moment that he has. I don’t want to give too much away because I think it’s part of a whole celebration of love, but Disney’s been great about it. That’s the thing; the whole ethic of that company is inclusion.”

Condon also confirmed, “It’s a kind of lovely little sprinkling.”

Gad shared that he was very happy to be a part of this particular moment in Disney history, adding, “As subtle as it is, I do think it’s going to be effective and I do think it’s important.”

We're excited to see the end result!



The photo makes him look like the tired stereotypical conception of a gay man, the one for the jokes. Nothing to relate to.

Anyway, I don't really feel any particular interest in stories so heavily centered around the idea of heterosexual love so I'm not even watching.
