5 Things: Tomi Lahren Is Still a Bitch, Tunisia Is Still Terrible, Methodist Church Is Still Banning Gays, Sir Ian McKellen Is Still Spilling Tea, and HBO Is Still on Track for New Gay Drama

Sir Ian McKellen spills some tea about Kevin Spacey, Bryan Singer, and the current climate about sexual conduct/misconduct.

Well frankly, I’m waiting for someone to accuse me of something, and me wondering whether they’re not telling the truth and me having forgotten… But with the couple of names you’ve mentioned, people I’ve worked with, both of them were in the closet. And hence all their problems as people and their relationships with other people, if they had been able to be open about themselves and their desires, they wouldn’t have started abusing people in the way they’ve been accused.

Sir Ian McKellen, when asked about the Kevin Spacey and Bryan Singer situations.

The iconic actor goes on to talk about how America may or may not allow the various shamed celebrities back into the limelight, and how every issue has its own subtleties and grey areas.

Honestly, the whole podcast is worth a listen. And, McKellen is on a roll, his recent appearance on the David Tennant podcast offers a lovely take on what it means to play a role as a gay man who ha a rough time accepting and playing themselves.
