Oscar-Winning Actor Joel Grey Comes Out As Gay
Broadway legend and Oscar-winning ‘Cabaret’ star Joel Grey has opened up about his sexuality in a new interview.
The 82-year-old said that while it was not a secret to his family, the announcement is the first time he has spoken publicly about his sexuality.
Joel Grey, the actor who won an Oscar for his stunning performance alongside Liza Minelli in Cabaret, has come out as gay. In an interview with People magazine, Grey said…
”I don’t like labels, but if you have to put a label on it, I’m a gay man”
The 82-year-old actor, who is the father of actress Jennifer Grey and also has a son, added that his family and friends have known about his sexuality.
“All the people close to me have known for years who I am [but] it took time to embrace that other part of who I always was,”
His daughter Jennifer spoke about the announcement, saying…
“I feel very happy for my dad that he has come to a point in his life where he feels safe and comfortable enough to declare himself in a public way as a gay man, mostly because the more people are free to own their true nature and can hopefully come closer to love and accept themselves as they really are, no matter what age, no matter how long it takes, to finally be free of the lies or half truths, it is freedom.”
