Kate Winslet: "I know at least 4 actors" still in the closet

I see what you mean - and that's a good point actually. I guess I worry would trans actors then only be able to tell trans roles? I guess I just think, if you were an actor and you had really devoted your life to telling the stories of those who might not otherwise be able to, it would be artistically unsatisfying to only portray experiences similar to your own. There's also the enormous problem of Hollywood needing a star to push it's movies and those stars are very predominantly white, but that's another issue cause certainly more stars can be created - just need to see the will, and more importantly need to see the audiences spending to watch.

That’s exactly the issue. LGBT actors aren’t getting many roles at all currently. Aside from my previous argument for much needed accurate representation of LGBT actors and actresses, Hollywood also simply isn’t hiring queer performers. At no point did I or anyone else say trans or LGB+ should only play characters of their respective orientation, but it’s a way to get their foot in the door at the very least. And that door is only opening if straight actors show more restraint in accepting those roles. (And I’m not saying that’s the only necessary step or solution either - a system-wide change is necessary in the entertainment industry, as Kate suggests.)
 

Also we don’t question it when straight cis actors play straight cis characters that are similar to their real life personas. It’s weird to suggest that we need to do that for queer performers simply because we’re asking that they get more roles they are already representative of.

Reading comprehension is essential. Emphasis on "at least". 

 

She's an A-List icon that's worked in dozens of films for decades. The safe assumption is she assumes there's more than 4 and likely speculates on more than four but said "at least 4" because of likely some confirmation for her that erased any remaining speculation for those 4. That could include their possible admission to her personally. Also, even though "actor" is used by some in the business for both genders it's safe to assume she's referring to men for all 4 given her immediate comment afterwards that the problem is much bigger for men than women that she willingly volunteered in this interview without being asked.

It still was not her place to talk :rip: 

Look what twitter is doing:

I was just joking but I wouldn't put my shocked face on if it'd turn out to be true.

 

How are you so sure?

This is BS... can a fem guy play a straight... no. And you can do all the movie magic there is you can't change someone's voice, demeanor and effeminate personality. It's sad but true. However, for guys that act and look like straight people it's easier. This being said, it's safer to stay in the closet to get your roles, money  and success even if you have to hide a part of yourself and keep a very low profile.

Do you know what the word “acting” means?

Imagine having to talk to your lawyers/assistants everytime you want a quick hook up and get them to do all relevant calls/documents so you can actually do it :toofunny2: (before or after the fact)

In K-Pop, idols only hook up with other idols so that nothing gets leaked (if one of the idols leak that they’re dating/hooked up then it would be detrimental to them as well since Korean K-Pop fans are crazy about their faves dating), maybe this is the same with gay actors/celebs. They only hook-up with fellow closeted high profile celebrities so that they both can’t afford to have anything leak about them.

And so what? It’s their business if they want  to be openly gay or not it’s really not a big deal.

Now people are just going to investigate the actors who are her friends. Not the smartest move, Kate. :rip:

From what she said, the first people who come to mind are,

 

bi: henry 

 

closeted: Hugh Jackman, Zac Efron, Bradley Cooper + Richard Madden 

 

if they are or not, it’s really none of ours of her business but she made some points.
