Joan Rivers to gay performers: Stay in the closet
Hollywoodnews.com: Joan Rivers thinks it’s a bad career move for an actor to come out of the closet and announce that they are gay.
“If you’re going to be a romantic idol and try to get every teenage girl to love you, then you’d be an ass to come out and say you’re gay,” Rivers says.
“Ricky Martin was so smart. He did what he did, made his millions and then he said, ‘Guess what, every body? I’m gay . . . It didn’t matter anymore because he didn’t have to bring in 16-year-old girls.”
Rivers says that should she ever play a lesbian onscreen again, she would pick her daughter Melissa to portray her love interest.
“Let’s really make it good.”
The IFC documentary about the former E! Style host “Joan Rivers: A Piece of Work” has grossed close to $1 million at the arthouse B.O. in its first three weekends.
