Last week we covered Lee Pace's "coming out" of sorts in an interview with W Magazine and it stoked some reactions, up to and including from yours truly. Most of us were just irritated at Lee's tone, which read as hostile in the moment. So I'll happily share his three-tweet response to the brouhaha today, hoping we can put this all behind us, present company included, and focus on what really matters - getting Netflix to green-light ten more seasons of Pushing Daisies. Here's what Lee had to say for himself:
"In a recent phone interview, I was asked questions that I wasn’t expecting and found myself momentarily at a loss for the right words. My privacy is important to me, so I protect it. When interviewed by the media, I keep the focus on my work. As a member of the queer community, I understand the importance of living openly, being counted, and happily owning who I am. That’s how I’ve always lived my life, just as it's been important to me to portray queer characters with dignity for my entire career: A Soldier's Girl (Showtime. 2003). The Normal Heart (Broadway. 2011). Halt and Catch Fire (AMC. 2014-2017). Angels in America. (Broadway. NOW.) Onward, with Pride."
