Jane Lynch: Gay actors will never get straight roles


Jane Lynch: Gay actors don’t get lead film roles

Say what?!!! Jane Lynch is pressing the hot button, bitches. Glee’s Lynch strongly believes that gay actors will never get a lead role in a film as a straight person…ever.

So what prompted such a strong assumption?

We’ve got the dirt below.

Lynch spoke to AfterElton.com about her thoughts that Hollywood will probably not hire openly gay individuals for their straight lead roles, especially when it comes to romantic flicks.

Here’s how she explained it: “I don’t know when or if that will ever happen. I think because since most of the world is straight – and maybe we’ll get to a place where this will happen – most of the world is straight and we want the audience to project their hopes and dreams for love and romance onto those actors. And if it’s not in some way possible, maybe never probably, in their mind that it could never happen, then they’re not going to do it. You know, most people are straight, and I think that’s probably why.”

And listen up, this strong opinion isn’t from a personal film role denial.

She adds, “Look, I’ve never – as far as I know, it’s been behind my back if it has – I’ve never been turned down for a role because I’m gay. I’m a character actor, and that’s probably why. I don’t find Hollywood, in my own experience, to be homophobic. Have I ever been turned down? I don’t know because you never know when you don’t get something or why you didn’t get it. But I do think the straight folks will continue to play the straight roles.”
