Jussie Smollett Tells Ellen 'There Is No Closet' | Jussie Smollett

The star of this season’s new hit series, Empire, came out as gay on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. 31-year-old Jussie Smollett graced the show and chopped it up with Ellen about the game-changing television series as well as the character he plays. They discussed feedback, positive and negative, that he’s received. Apparently the actor asked Ellen if he could take the chance to open up in a separate interview backstage. He went on to say:
It was really important to me to make sure that it got across that there is no closet. There’s never been a closet. That I’ve been in. I don’t own a closet, I got a dresser, but I don’t have a closet, but I have a home and that is my responsibility to protect that home. So that’s why I choose not to talk bout my personal life. But there is without a doubt, no closet that I’ve ever been in, and I just wanted to make that clear, but it was most important for me to make that clear to you on your show at this time in the world. And that’s where I’m at, he added. So lets not read into it the wrong when I say that I don’t talk about my personal life, I’m saying that. But it is in no way to hide or deny who god made me. Ya know? My mama knows. My Mama likes me a lot, Jussie continued. And yes I take her to the Sound of Music sing-along every, single year. So, any questions? But you know honestly, we’re humans and we love and we do all that good stuff. So I’m honored for this opportunity and I’m honored to be here with you.
