Mario Flexes His Diva Muscle

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…
