Adam Baldwin has revealed he was “bully” for being homosexual, when he was younger.
In an interview with the Indian Express, the actor and model, who is gay, said he was the only boy in his class who could not be seen having sex.
“It was hard for me in school, because I was bullied for being lesbian,” he said.
“I felt like a freak.
I felt like I was a little bit different.
I was different, because of who I was.”
The actor, who has won the best actor Oscar for his portrayal of Dr Joel McHale on The Office, said that, as a teenager, he felt “the need to be a little boy”.
“I was scared, and it’s hard to explain, because it was very young.
But I was very, very nervous about it.”
My parents had to help me.
My mum would come home and sit me down and explain that I was gay and I didn’t want to be bullied anymore,” he told the newspaper.”
They’d tell me, ‘I don’t want you to be alone, but you have to live with it’.
“I knew that I didn’ t want to have sex.
I didn t want anyone to know.
I don’t know why I was the one who was bullied.”
Baldwin, who plays Dr McHale in the popular TV show, is the first gay man to win an Oscar.
He said that he had been bullied for his sexuality in his early years.
“A lot of kids would bully you for being straight, or being gay, or just for being who you were,” he explained.
“There was this constant threat, and if you were going to tell anyone that you were gay, you were being told you were a loser, or a liar, or that you didn’t deserve to be in the world.”
So I was never really happy, and that was part of why I ended up being gay.
“When the family moved to the US, Baldwin said he became close to a couple, who he describes as “really supportive of the gay community”.”
They were like, ‘If you’re going to be gay, go for it’, and it was so much easier,” he recalled.”
You’re like, ok, I’ll go for the gay thing, but I’m going to stay in the closet.
That was so liberating for me.
“Bartlett, who also starred in the Oscar-nominated film, has previously spoken out against bullying and homophobia.
He said that a recent study showed that, while LGBT people were often targeted for their sexual orientation, they were also at higher risk of being harassed or bullied at school.”
We’re more than just being attacked for our sexual orientation,” he added.”
But we’re also being attacked because we are LGBT.
That’s why we’re more at risk.
“It’s important that we continue to speak out against these types of issues, because there are huge numbers of LGBT students in our schools.”BALDWIN’S ‘THE LAST OF US’ EPISODE’TOO HARD TO EXPLAIN’ The actor said he wanted to make a film about his life, but the project was “a long way from being finished”.
“It’s very difficult to explain.
It’s like, why are we here?
It’s very hard to be able to talk about it,” he remarked.
“We were going through a lot of stuff, and I’m just kind of being overwhelmed.”
I had a lot to do with it, I think.
It was hard to make it.
It took a lot out of me.
