Alan Cumming, Constance Wu Applaud Noah Galvin’s Candid Interview About Gay Hollywood

“Keep on telling it like it is,” Cumming tweets Thursday

Alan Cumming and Constance Wu have applauded “Real O’Neals” star Noah Galvin for a candid interview about being gay in Hollywood.

Although Galvin has since apologized his comments published Thursday, he spoke openly about his experience of being a gay actor, and criticized former “Arrow” star Colton Haynes for how he came out of the closet.

The actors did not specify which part of Galvin’s lengthy interview they appreciated the most. “Modern Family” star Jesse Tyler Ferguson, however, has made it clear he supports free speech but he disagrees with Galvin’s assesment of Haynes and co-star Eric Stonestreet

Galvin also brought up sexual assault allegations against Bryan Singer. The director’s accuser dropped the lawsuit in 2014, and the lawyer representing the man publicly apologized for “the untrue and proveably false allegations.” Galvin apologized for his comments about Singer, too.

“My comments were false and unwarranted. It was irresponsible and stupid of me to make those allegations against Bryan, and I deeply regret doing so. I have never been to Bryan’s house, and I admit there is no basis for any of the things I said or implied about Bryan in that interview,” Galvin wrote.

As for Haynes, Galvin took aim at his coming out process, which many found vague and rather drawn out. Galvin regrets the criticism, especially in light of his role as a 16-year-old closeted high school student.

“I have no right to dictate how or when anybody comes out of the closet; I know how difficult and scary the process of coming out can be, and the last thing I would ever want to do is make it scarier,” he said.

Ferguson applauded Galvin for his apology, writing, “A truly classy response. Mad respect for you Noah.”

Meanwhile, Haynes responded to Galvin’s remarks, stating “It’s extremely ironic that only a month ago I was tweeting this kid and saying that he should win an Emmy for his work. Then today he returns the favor by calling me a p–y & the worst to the entire world.”
