HollywoodNews.com: A four-time Emmy winner for ‘Frasier’ and a Tony winner for ‘Curtains,’ David Hyde Pierce has enjoyed a great deal of success in his professional life.
The star, whose other Broadway credits include ‘Spamalot,’ is currently back on stage in ‘La Bete.’ He talked about a host of personal topics recently which were reported by PopEater.
Here are some excerpts:
On being out: “It was very important to me never to pretend, never to hide.

We met this lovely married couple down in the grocery store below the apartment building where we all stayed. A month later, we finally had the courage to come out and let them know that in fact we were a couple. They said, ‘We knew when we saw you shopping.’”
