Fry Refuses To Congratulate Straight Actors
British funnyman Stephen Fry is annoyed when straight actors are congratulated for playing gay characters. The star believes it is wrong to hail actors "brave" just because they can realistically kiss other men onscreen. He says, "I think the fact that I am so well known to be gay makes it very difficult to have a convincing relationship with a woman on screen. "Straight actors can play gay people and they're rather congratulated on it. People say, 'Ooh how brave of you.'"
