  • “I always thought I’d be a really good gay guy. I love American Idol. I watch Antiques Roadshowlike crazy. Guys like Oscar Wilde, Stephen Fry, Elton John – they’re all very bright, with a razor-sharp wit. David Sedaris – who’s funnier than David Sedaris? The Saturday Night Livethat I hosted was such a gay-heavy show. But it didn’t even cross my mind until after. The family that kept kissing each other – I didn’t even think of that as being gay… I remember doing interviews for The Object of My Affection, and people would say, ‘What was it like to kiss a guy?’ Like it was such a shocking thing. I said, How many times does anyone ask, ‘You had to shoot somebody. Was that weird?’ I love gay guys. I feel pretty gay. I’m certainly not the most macho guy in the room.” – Paul Rudd [World of Wonder]
