Zachary Quinto - Zachary Quinto offered more work since revealing he's gay

Zachary Quinto has been offered more acting jobs since coming out as gay.

The 'Star Trek Into Darkness' star - who plays Mr Spock in the revamped franchise - is glad he opened up about his sexuality and believes it has a had a positive impact on his career.

He told chat show host Jonathan Ross in a pre-recorded interview that will air tonight (04.05.13): ''I haven't stopped working, I've only worked more since I came out.''

The actor also revealed he was encouraged to come out after a string of teenage suicides occurred in America shortly after he finished performing in a play called 'Angels in America', which focused on New York City during the height of the AIDS crisis.

He said: ''I just felt like it was a convergence for me where I was in a position, and am in a position, for young people to look at the experience that I've had, to look at the opportunities that have been presented to me and to recognise in themselves that there is no limitation and that we live in a time where the tide is changing.

''For me I felt like it was the right time and the right way.''

The 35-year-old actor - who opened up about his sexuality in 2011 - says despite the large amount of work he's been offered, he has no interest in working with anyone who has an issue with him being gay.

He said: ''If people don't want to work with me because of my sexual orientation, then I have no interest in working with them to begin with. It doesn't really put me in a position where I feel like I'm limited.''
