In an interview with Larry King this week, the 92-year-old actress reaffirmed her favorable stance on gay rights in response to a fan’s question regarding the impact the gay community has had on her career.
Echoing the sentiment from her 2010 Parade interview, in which she first came out in support of gay rights, White says she doesn’t understand why homophobes think same-sex relationships are any of their business.
“I don’t care whom you sleep with,” she said. “It’s ‘what kind of human being are you?’ I don’t understand [why people are antigay], it’s such a personal private business and it’s none of mine.”
In her initial 2010 interview, White said “I don’t know how people can get so anti-something. Mind your own business, take care of your affairs, and don’t worry about other people so much.”
