Lily Tomlin’s 72nd Birthday Wish: Stop Expecting Closeted Stars To Come Out

Ninja, prease. Lily Tomlin was livin’ the lesbo-loca back before coming out on magazine covers was cool. But in a 2008 interview she said that celebrity fans shouldn’t expect closeted stars to come out because you never know their circumstances. As for anti-gay politicians, Tomlin says you can force those clowns out the closet whenever you like.

Happy birthday, Ernestine!
