There have been Kevin Spacey gay rumors as long as there’s been Kevin Spacey. And when the Golden Globe nominee for Casino Jack recently met with an interviewer from the Daily Beast, said reporter was not interested in how great it must feel to be nominated. Instead, interviewer Kevin Sessumes asked the American Beauty actor why he refused to come out the closet, despite the fact that everyone and their mama “knows” that he’s gay. “People have different reasons for the way they live their lives. You cannot put everyone’s reasons in the same box. It’s just a line I’ve never crossed and never will,” replied Spacey. “I don’t live a lie. You have to understand that people who choose not to discuss their personal lives are not living a lie. That is a presumption that people jump to.” Yup, just the kind of statement you’d hear from someone with absolutely nothing to hide about his sexuality! So, how great was it to be nominated?
Concluded Spacey, “Look, at the end of the day people have to respect people’s differences. I am different than some people would like me to be.” For example, we would like him to be an actor who never appeared in K-PAX, but we just have to make peace with the fact that he was.Ã‚Â It’s something we struggle with every day.
