"I am an observer. I am an only child, so I spent a lot of time just watching people. And now as an adult I watch and observe. When you get to work with people like Ian McKellen or directors like Peter Jackson, you sit and watch. That's how I learned to be a film actor."

Can't find the clip up anywhere yet, but Chelsea Handler and her panel "outed Luke Evans and then destroyed his management team" over this week's inartful migration back into the closet for the Musketeer. It really is hard to unring a be-e-ell [sung to the tune of the Anita Ward classic].
In my opinion, by noting they discussed whether to even write about the Luke Evans in/out story as if it were some sort of grave journalistic decision, AfterElton feeds into the perception that calling someone gay is a very big deal, possibly libelous and certainly an invasion of privacy. I'm sure the eds' trepidation is organic (and I'm aware most gay people are against outing), though I doubt they'd have jobs if they felt otherwise as they'd likely get fired by their corporate bosses if they outed people willy-nilly.
Says Michael Jensen at AfterElton:
Evans, who will be seen in the sure-to-be blockbusters The Three Musketeers and both parts of The Hobbit among many other film roles, was once openly gay. Unabashedly so.
