The 51-year-old said he still faces prejudice because he is out, and that lots of LGBT+ people still face discrimination based on their gender identity or sexual orientation. “I live in the world. I’m very privileged person, but there are certain things I’m aware of in certain places I go to. If you’re a (gay) person living in this world, you still feel like you’re a second-class citizen. Because you absolutely are. You still don’t have the same rights,” he said. The actor is in civil union with his partner since 2007 and officially married since 2012.

He recently opened up to the Independent about the specific way he crafted his autobiography, which doesn’t often reference the fact he married a woman before marrying a man He said: “Some people have said about the book: ‘He doesn’t mention that he was first married to a woman and then married to a man’. But that’s not what this book is about… it’s not about me being bisexual. I get a little tired of everything – if I was straight, you wouldn’t think that I should make references to the fact that I was straight, so it just feels a little bit double standard-y. The whole bisexual thing keeps coming up, and I just think that, eventually, hopefully, we’ll all live in a world where we don’t talk about it as much and just get on with it.”

  1. Wow, these are some creatively advanced designs. They make me think of complex music like muyr-ilaleted funk pieces from the 70s, one of my favourite types of music. I really don’t know anything about quilting, but this looks good.
