Gay bait

Andrew Garfield says he wouldn’t rule out gay sex in the future… there’s just one caveat

Actor Andrew Garfield says he wouldn’t rule out gay sex in the future.

In a new interview with OUT, Garfield says, “I have an openness to any impulses that may arise.”

There’s a caveat, of course.

For the past 34 years, he’s only ever been attracted to women and has never once found himself sexually attracted to a man.

But that could change, right? …Maybe? …Possibly? …Perhaps?

“My stance toward life, though, is that I always try to surrender to the mystery of not being in charge,” he continued. “I think most people–we’re intrinsically trying to control our experience here, and manage it, and put walls around what we are and who we are.”

“I want to know as much of the garden as possible before I pass,” he adds. “But, if I were to identify, I would identify as heterosexual.”

Last summer, the white, heterosexual, cisgender male received criticism for saying he was a gay man “just without the physical act.”

“[Watching Drag Race] is my life outside of this play,” he said during a Q&A at the National Theatre. “I am a gay man right now just without the physical act – that’s all.”

In his interview with OUT, Garfield tries to explain what he meant by those remarks.

“I think part of what I was trying to say was about inclusion, and about that openness to my impulses,” he says.

Again, impulses that, for the past 34 years, have exclusively involved women.
