Thought For The Day: Ian McKellen

'That's my message to anyone in this town who thinks 'I've got to stay in the closet to be successful in films'... I didn't.

'Do you want to be a famous movie star who has love scenes with ladies and in private be an unhappy gay? There's no choice. Forget the career, dear. Go and do something else ... A closet's a really nasty place to live, you know? It's dirty, it's dusty, it's full of skeletons. You don't want it. Open that door — fling it wide and be yourself.'

Hollywood Reporter.

Sireena came out when she was 48, long after her 'leading man' days were over.

She is now cast as elderly wizards and vicious old queens.

So let that be a lesson to you, aspiring gay actors.
