"I love my personal life and having a social life. And I didn't ever want to have to compromise. I could imagine being at this stage now and having skeletons in the closet, and you sitting here going, 'So have you got a girlfriend?' and me saying, 'I've not got a girlfriend at the moment, I've not met the right girl, there's a few people around.' And in my head going, I'm going back home to my boyfriend in five minutes.
"D'you know what I mean? I just can't be arsed with that."
Guardian Weekend magazine.
Highly imaginative cover lines; Acting Out - Russell Tovey playing it straight.
Barely a month seems to go by without another glowing profile of Russell Tovey in the weekend supplements.
Everybody loves Russell!
And why not?
He's adorable; good-looking, talented, very busy work-wise*, and seems utterly charming.
But how about just for once not talking about his ears, being a big gayer who's a birrova lad, The History Boys, Him N Her, coming out, the acting closet, and ye olde, 'Can gay men act the straights?''
