People say we gays are vain, but we don’t know anyone quite like straight man Mario Lopez.
The actor, who recently began playing lead choreographer Zach in Broadway’s A Chorus Line, reportedly wants to be the biggest muscle man in the show – and he’s making demands to ensure he faces no challengers:
[Lopez] refused to wear Zach’s costume, a tan sweater with long sleeves.
It’s an iconic outfit, based on that worn in real life by A Chorus Line creator Michael Bennett, and it’s been worn by countless Zachs… for the past 30 years.
But “Flex” Lopez wanted to wear a brown shirt with short sleeves so that he could show off his biceps.
The only trouble is, Flex is sharing the stage with a pair of biceps larger than his. They belong to Nick Adams, who plays Larry, the assistant choreographer.
Larry’s iconic costume is a navy blue tank top with the number 17 on it… Flex, sources say, was concerned that Adams’ biceps would upstage his, so he requested that Adams wear a hoodie over his tank top, which Adams does whenever he’s next to Flex.
We’re not that shocked to hear all this – someone as pretty as Lopez is sure to have a complex. We are surprised, however, that he has the nerve to request such changes. His biceps must not be the only big thing on him…
