Freeman Urges Hollywood Gays To 'Come Out'

THE OFFICE star MARTIN FREEMAN is convinced there are many high profile gay actors in Hollywood - and can't understand why they don't reveal their true sexuality.
The British actor fears many stars are put off announcing they are gay, for fear it may harm their box office credentials.
But Freeman insists their fears are unnecessary as their fans won't care.
He says, "The funny thing about the acting business is that there are more poofs (gay people) in it than you can have hot dinners thrown at you.
"But no one is out. It's not so bad here (in Britain), but in Hollywood... Why don't they just admit it? No one cares if they are gay or not. I certainly don't.
"In this so-called liberal industry, no one has the guts to come out because of the box office, but someone has to be first in the firing line."
