That face is probably the same one Lee Pace made after realizing he just came out while trying not to come out.
Lee Pace has been a resident of the Hollywood glass closet for a while now, and a few years ago, many thirsty hos prayed to the gay gods for a sex tape of him and Richard Armitage to leak. Lee Pace has never said that he loves peen, even though Ian McKellen accidentally said it for him, but he recently shuffled out of the glass closet during an interview with W Magazine. And I don’t think he really wanted to.
Lee is currently playing Joe Pitt, a gay character, in Angels in America on Broadway, and he told W that he thinks gay actors should play the gay roles in the play. Brian Moylan, who interviewed Lee for W, followed that up with a question about Lee’s sexuality. I’m guessing the question was, “So, you like dick or what?” Because Lee went down to Tiffany & Co, bought a string of pearls, put them on, went back to Brian and then clutched those pearls over the disgusting audacity of being asked a question he opened himself up to!
Pace added that he feels it’s important for gay actors to play the gay roles in both plays, but stopped short of labeling himself. He seemed a bit flustered and surprised by the question. “I’ve dated men. I’ve dated women,” he explained. “I don’t know why anyone would care. I’m an actor and I play roles. To be honest, I don’t know what to say—I find your question intrusive.”
I’m sure Lee Pace’s lady fans aren’t annoyed with his answer, because they were too busy thinking to themselves, “So you’re telling me I have a chance,” after he said he’s dated women.
But really, Lee answered that question all wrong. What he should’ve said is, “Bitch, I just said that gay actors should play the gay roles in Angels in America, and I’m currently playing a gay role in Angels in America. Do you need me to get Taraji P. Henson as Katherine Johnson so she can tell you the obvious answer to that simple ass equation?”
