As fans of the Dexter star know all too well, Michael C. Hall is currently married for the third time with a woman, but the actor got candid about love more than ever, revealing that he is ‘not all the way heterosexual.’ While this may be great news for the male fans of the attractive celeb, he has been married to Morgan McGregor since 2016, so they still have no chance!
Still, during an interview with the Daily Beast, Hall explained that he is also willing to ‘lean into’ gender fluidity!
‘I think there’s a spectrum. I am on it. I’m heterosexual. But if there were a percentage, I would say I was not all the way heterosexual,’ he went on to tell the outlet.
Apparently, playing the emcee in the Broadway revival of Cabaret in 1999 was what helped him understand himself through the character.
‘I think playing the emcee required me to fling a bunch of doors wide open because that character I imagined as pansexual. Yeah, like I made out with Michael Stuhlbarg every night doing that show. I think I’ve always leaned into fluidity in terms of my sexuality.’
The man was actually married twice before wedding Morgan.
Michael has played gay characters before! In fact, his breakout role was funeral home owner David Fisher on Six Feet Under!
When asked, the star admitted that ‘I’ve never had an intimate relationship with a man. I think that maybe because of an absent father (died when he was just 11), there’s definitely been a craving for an emotional intimacy with a man. I do not mean to suggest that an emotional relationship between a father and so is in any way homoerotic. I mean an emotional intimacy or a connection that at least in the milieu that I grew up in was considered gay. I had the appetite to have an emotional connection with men beyond just beer, sports, and fist-pumping that were considered ‘gay.’’
As for being attracted to men, Michael said it only happened once, and the object of his desire was John Cameron Mitchell on Broadway as the lead in Hedwig and the Angry Inch.
‘I was attracted to John Cameron Mitchell when I saw Hedwig. But no, as a rule, I am heterosexual,’ he went on to explain.
