Jonathan Groff Says 'Playing Gay' is in the Eye of the Beholder
Glee actor Jonathan Groff says he was not fazed by Ramin Satoodeh’s article saying he was unconvincing as a straight character, in a new interview with the L.A. Times:
To be honest, I feel the same way now as I did then. Here’s the deal — I go to my auditions and plug away and try and do my best. People are going to say whatever they’re going to say about your performance, and at the end of the day, you can’t let that stuff affect you. Everyone is entitled to his opinion, and it started a lot of good conversations probably. All I can do is laugh and keep moving forward. Sexuality is such an interesting thing. Unless you’re playing a very effeminate person, a stereotypical queen, it’s hard to say what it means to play gay.
