In The Real O’Neals, Noah Galvin plays a gay teenager who has just come out to his family.
Now, the actor, who is also out in real life, talks to Vulture about coming out, and he has a few choice words to share about Colton Haynes.
Haynes came out last month, which seemed pretty clear although he never actually spoke the words, “I’m gay.”
And Galvin thought it was pretty lame.
During the interview, the journalist asks if Galvin was familiar with Haynes, to which he replies, “The worst.”
He went on to reiterate:
“That’s not coming out. That’s f**king p**sy bullsh*t,” Galvin said of his fellow actor.
“That’s like, enough people assume that I sleep with men, so I’m just going to slightly confirm the fact that I’ve sucked a d*ck or two,” he added.
“That’s not doing anything for the little gays but giving them more masturbation material.”
Galvin also addresses how he wants to approach his character “Kenny” on The Real O’Neals, and says he doesn’t want him to “just be the Eric Stonestreet,” referring to the actor who plays an effeminate gay character on Modern Family.
“No, I think as wonderful of an actor as Eric Stonestreet is — I’ve never met him, I assume he’s a wonderful guy — he’s playing a caricature of a caricature of a stereotype of stereotype on Modern Family,” said Galvin.
“And he’s a straight man in real life,” he noted. “And as hilarious as that character is, there’s a lack of authenticity.”
“I want Kenny to be more than the funny gay kid,” he explained.
