Washington D.C. [USA], July 6 (ANI): It looks like Andrew Garfield seems to believe that you can be a "gay man" without even having "s** with men". While supporting his part in Tony Kushner's play 'Angels in America', Garfield found himself discussing his character who struggles between his Jewish faith and homosexuality, reports E! Online. During the panel discussion, Andrew revealed that he prepared for the role by watching episodes of RuPaul's 'Drag Race'. "Every Sunday I would have eight friends over and we would just watch Ru. I mean every single series of RuPaul's Drag Race. I mean every series. This is my life outside of this play. I am a gay man right now just without the physical act-that's all." The statement quickly received many reactions from fans online. At the same time, the 'Hacksaw Ridge' star later made it clear that he is not gay. He said, "As far as I know, I am not a gay man. Maybe I'll have an awakening later in my life, which I'm sure will be wonderful and I'll get to explore that part of the garden, but right now I'm secluded to my area, which is wonderful, as well." Adding, "I adore it, but a big concern was what right do I have to play this wonderful gay role? It was about doing honor, doing justice." Angels in America is a 1993 play about the AIDS crisis and other LGBT issues. Regardless of what followers think of Andrew's latest statements, the actor is very grateful to take on a role that has become "the most fulfilling creative experience." (ANI)
