Sir Ian McKellen Regrets Not Coming Out Of The Closet


June 4, 2015: The 76-year-old actor, Sir Ian McKellen admits that he would change if he could do it all over again and opened up about his experience with coming out of the closet to family and friends.

McKellen said that he felt much “freer” after coming out as gay, and that his family didn’t “give a damn” about his sexuality.He further said that he regret and always shall that he didn’t see the significance of coming out at a much earlier date because he think he would have been a different. He also stated that he had been using acting as a disguise—somewhere where he could express my emotions, and draw attention to myself in a way that he didn’t particularly want to do in real life.

McKellen is currently set to receive the Trevor Project’s Trevor Hero Award and will serve as one of four Grand Marshals in this month’s New York City Pride celebration.
