Kate Winslet says she knows ‘at least four’ actors ‘hiding their sexuality’ due to ‘homophobia’ in Hollywood

“I can think of at least four actors absolutely hiding their sexuality,” the 45-year-old actress told the Sunday Times. “It’s painful. Because they fear being found out. And that’s what they say. ‘I don’t want to be found out.'”

Winslet explained that the discrimination often begins as soon as actors and actresses launch their careers.

“I cannot tell you the number of young actors I know — some well-known, some starting out — who are terrified their sexuality will be revealed and that it will stand in the way of their being cast in straight roles,” she said, calling the notion “f–ked up.”

The “Titanic” star further claimed that some Hollywood agents tell their up-and-coming clients not to “publicize” their sexuality as it may hurt their careers.
