Takei: I Have Never Forced Myself Upon Someone
Sexiest Man Alive?!

DListed: George Takei explicitly disavows his words on Howard Stern's show:
For decades, I have played the part of a ‘naughty gay grandpa’ when I visit Howard’s show, a caricature I now regret. But I want to be clear: I have never forced myself upon someone during a date. Sometimes my dates were the initiators, and sometimes I was. It was always by mutual consent. I see now that that it has come across poorly in the awkward sketch, and I apologize for playing along with Howard’s insinuation.
