“The Real O’Neals” star Noah Galvin has no patience for gay actors and closeted men in Hollywood.
In a recent interview with Vulture, the New York native star of ABC’s family sitcom rips L.A.’s gay community and it’s relationship to the entertainment industry.
“Yeah. Bryan Singer likes to invite little boys over to his pool and diddle them in the f—ing dark of night. [Laughs.] I want nothing to do with that,” he joked. “I think there are enough boys in L.A. … who are willing to do things with the right person who can get them in the door.”
He went on to explain that Los Angeles doesn’t have a “healthy gay community” in the way that New York does. According to Galvin, “half of the men are closeted and the other half are just dumb.”
Galvin also tore into actors like “Arrow” star Colton Haynes, who choose to stay closeted for professional reasons. He called Haynes’ sly coming out “f—ing p—y bulls–t.”
“That’s like, enough people assume that I sleep with men, so I’m just going to slightly confirm the fact that I’ve sucked a d— or two,” he said after explaining that he felt an obligation to come out because of the role he plays on TV. “That’s not doing anything for the little gays but giving them more masturbation material.”
“I like to think it makes it that much more relatable,” Galvin said of his own public coming out. “And older people who watch the show are like, damn, I wish I had something like this on TV when I was younger to normalize my situation and make me not so self-hating.”
The downside is that since “The Real O’Neals” is his first starring television role, Galvin said he’s been pigeonholed by other people’s expectations of him as a young gay actor, missing out on roles because he’s “too gay.”
“Somebody who watches our show is maybe blinded by the fact that I play gay on this television show — I’m sure there are a thousand contributing factors,” he said. “it’s an interesting thing I’m learning to navigate and having to deal with for the first time.”
