Ask a Gay: Is It Okay for Straight Guys to Play Gay?

Your straight buddies may be evolved and your girlfriend plenty chic, but even in this day and age, there are some questions that only a stylish gay man can answer.



Q: What's the deal with straight actors taking gay roles in movies, like Jim Carrey and Ewan McGregor in I Love You Phillip Morris? Is that a good thing or a bad thing?
A: I'm all for it—as long as the movie depicts us gays in a serious light, say Jake Gyllenhaal staging a dramatic confrontation . . . in his underwear. Butt shot optional.
