“90210” star Trevor Donovan says that playing gay on TV gets him girls

HollywoodNews.com: Trevor Donovan has been one of the more thoughtful actors to ever take on a high-profile gay role on television. It has been clear from the very beginning that playing Teddy Montgomery on 90210 has been a career high point for the actor and his various comments in the past year have been insightful.

So the actor was mortified by the tone of an interview he did with Life & Style magazine in which he said about playing Teddy: “It’s been good for me. Girls want to challenge it. They kind of assume I’m [gay in real life] and try to change me back. Of course, I let them!”

He has clarified his comments: “Dear @Life_and_Style,” the actor writes. “Although I appreciate the interview/article, but the headline ‘Playing gay gets me girls’ was an off the cuff, joking around remark, & feel takes away from the real meaning of the discussion/interview, which was the importance of the Teddy storyline and what influence a simple storyline can have & mean to some people.”

“I grew up in a small town and understand the hopefully positive impact an important story like Teddy’s could have on teens growing up in rural areas. Again, thank you for the interview, but for the record I did not see playing Teddy or ‘Playing Gay’ as a way to get girls, but as an opportunity to embody a challenging role and do it with purpose.”
