“If I were to be really honest, there was a homophobic voice that rose up inside me that said, ‘Gee, this is kind of scary.’ First of all, what will people think, and second of all, will I like it? Will I like kissing Ewan? How will that affect me? There were a few people in my world who said, ‘Are you sure you want to do this?’ And that still exists. I said ‘Absolutely’ because, sexual preference aside, it is a story that is so compelling and interesting and different. It’s about humanity. It is about you love who you love. And love is love. And that’s it.” —I Love You Phillip Morris star Jim Carrey on playing the gay character Steven Russell
