It's silly and offensive to call an actor brave in 2018 for playing gay in a movie — but it was accurate to use that word in 1982! Harry Hamlin's career took a hit when he played gay in Making Love, and co-star Kate Jackson had to endure an incredibly stilted appearance on The Tonight Show. (Her movie career went nowhere after that, too.)
Luckily, he rebounded with L.A. Law and more. Happy 67th to my Clash of the Titans crush.
