According to Star Trek star, Zachary Quinto, ever since he has come out he has been getting more jobs than ever.
Quinto was on The Jonathan Ross Show Saturday night to promote Star Trek Into Darkness. While on the show he discussed his coming out and why it, “felt like it was the right time and the right way” and the impact it has had on his career.
He told Ross that he is not interested in working with anyone who has issues with his sexuality, and that has not limited his production because he says he has worked more “since he came out.” “If people don’t want to work with me because of my sexual orientation, then I have no interest in working with them to begin with.”
In the interview Quinto also talked about why he thought coming out when he did was the right time to do it. He came out shortly after the teen suicides that were happening in America at the time because he, “was in a position, and am in a position, for young people to look at the experience that I’ve had, to look at the opportunities that have been presented to me and to recognize in themselves that there is no limitation and that we live in a time where the tide is changing.”
Be sure to catch Quinto as the legendary Spock in Star Trek into Darkness on May 17th in the North America and on May 9th in the UK.
