Andrew Garfield is in hot water with the LGBTQ community after a recent interview where he "came out" (only not really at all) by declaring himself a "gay man right now, just without the physical act." And he may not be able to lipsync to Whitney Houston or kiss Ryan Reynolds his way out of this one.
The 33-year-old actor is currently starring in the London revival of the play Angels in America by Tony Kushner, in which he plays a gay man during the height of the 1980's AIDS crisis. And to prep for the role, he said he's been watching RuPaul's Drag Race.
"My only time off during rehearsals—every Sunday I would have eight friends over, and we would just watch Ru," Garfield said during a recent NT Platform discussion, the Gay Times reports. "This is my life outside of this play. I am a gay man right now, just without the physical act—that's all."
LGBTQ folks and allies are understandably pissed at the actor for implying that homosexuality is a "lifestyle" that you can just try on for fun when, umm, it's not. And now the gay-but-not-gay Spiderman actor is getting dragged all across Twitter.
