The actor – who has children Ava, 10, and Deacon, six, with ex-wife Reese Witherspoon – claimed he was comfortable enough to go to a gay bar in Austin, Texas, with a friend, because he’s so comfortable with his own sexuality.
He said: “We ended up going to a gay bar there, but I don’t even think anyone noticed me. I was kind of shocked. Maybe my gay fans are just better behaved than my straight fans. Who cares, man, in this day and age?”
The 35-year-old heartthrob – who stars in the new action comedy movie ‘MacGruber’, which is rife with gay jokes – knew the film would be a hit when he took his best friend to see it and even he fell in love with the character.
He told Advocate magazine: “I took my best gay friend with me to the screening and he loved it. The funny thing about MacGruber is that he’s a deplorable human being – he’s sexist, a little homophobic, a bit racist, and a bumbling idiot – but somehow, and it’s a testament to how good of an actor Will Forte is, you still like him.”
