In a recent interview, Ian McKellen opened about confessing his sexuality to his family, adding that he regrets not coming out of the closet “much earlier.”
The 76-year-old actor confessed that had he seen the significance of coming out before, he would have been a different and a happier person, reported E! Online.
The ‘X-men’ star said that he felt much “freer” after coming out as gay and his family didn’t give a damn about his sexuality.
He further said that he made acting his disguise to express his emotions and to draw attention to himself in a way that he didn’t particularly want to do in real life.
