Another Reason to Love Stephen Fry
Stephen Fry, the brilliant actor, comic, writer, and all-around hot piece of ass, wants to know why the media lauds straight actors for playing gay roles. In an interview with the BBC's Radio Times, he noted that gay actors are never told, "How brave of you to kiss that woman, that must have been very difficult for you."
"It wouldn't be that difficult for me to kiss a woman," Fry continued. "I'll kiss a frog if you like. It's difficult to ride bareback backwards while unicycling, but to kiss someone isn't difficult." Perhaps we could start a collection to fly Stephen to Los Angeles, so he could explain this to the American media. Brokeback Mountain came out two years ago and I still have a headache from all the stupid questions that were asked of Heath Ledger and Jake Gyllenhaal. Given the opportunity, you don't ask those two if it was hard to kiss. You ask them to apologize for The Four Feathers and Bubble Boy.
