Ryan Phillippe talks about his gay role on “One Life to Live”

By Greg Hernandez

Long before there was Oliver Fish and Kyle Lewis, Ryan Phillippe played gay teenager Billy Douglas on ABC’s One Life to Live.

The 34-year-old actor had not yet starred in such films as Cruel Intentions, Gosford Park, Igby Goes Down, Crash and Stop-Loss when he was on the soap and his character the first gay teenager on a daytime soap opera paving the way years later for Luke Snyder on As the World Turns.

In a Men’s Health cover story featuring a now very studly Ryan, the actor said of his 1992-93 soap stint: “I would worry, ‘What will the people at school think?’ And they shunned me in a lot of ways. But it ended up being an incredible experience and such a time of growth for me.”
