Perhaps Gilles Marini’s appearance as Samantha’s equally-liberated neighbor in the
best first Sex and the City film inspired his progressive attitude, or maybe it’s just a liberal viewpoint that comes with being French-born, but the heartthrob doesn’t understand why any gay people would stay in the closet today.
While appearing on Bethenny, former Real Housewives star Bethenny Frankel’s new chat show, Marini was asked if he’d ever help a famous friend hide his sexual orientation from the public.
“We’re in 2013!” he answered in disbelief at the question. “I think it’s very uncool to be in the closet nowadays. I never was a witness in any wedding in my life, and the first time I was a witness in a wedding in my life was for my dear friends Philippe and David — same-sex couple — and I think it was fantastic. Don’t stay in the closet. You’ll only hurt your heart and, down the line, probably your family. They need to know the truth about what you like and what you want in life.”
