Let it be, part 2

What I wanted to add is that there is a big difference between being an actor and a celebrity. Sometimes the one comes with the other, but not always at the choice of the actor. Believe it or not, but some actors (Leonardo tried really hard after Titanic to be taken serious as an actor, and look at his two great performances last year), like myself, would not like the tabloid attention and the fame, but just to earn a living by doing what they want do to: act.

**Okay, so, I’m very pleased with the response to these last posts, and I encourage everyone to leave their opinion. One more thing. My issue with this article in Out Magazine, does not mean that I don’t think it’s a great thing for people in the entertainment business to come out. On the contrary, I think it’s great and actor’s like Neil Partick and athletes are leading examples for a more open perspective on sexuality in the entertainment industry. It also can be a positive example and influence for millions of people to come out. Again, my issue is with a magazine trying to force people out in the closet and presuming that this will make their life happier, while everyone should have the right to make that decision themself.**
