The American actor told NewNowNext: “It seems like almost every gay movie is about some struggle—the struggle of coming out, how hard it is, people not understanding”. He said that it is really great that it is shown, but it is necessary to show gay guys like straight guys are shown, living their lives without speculating on who they are attracted to, it means equality. Devine, who stars opposite Rebel Wilson in new rom-com parody Isn’t It Romantic, also said he would have no problem if he was asked to play a gay character if this character is good and the script is good. “I certainly would never pass on a role because it was gay,” he added. The actor, who has a large gay following, said that he is overwhelmed by all the love and support he receives from them.
