5. Is Michael Cimino gay?
Michael Cimino is straight. He experienced backlash, and even death threats, for playing the gay lead in Love, Victor. He told Attitude: "The show is important to me. The messages of hate – I came into it knowing that would happen, regardless of how good I was. But there are some straight actors who play gay characters, who are all about supporting LGBTQ+ rights while they’re promoting their project, but once they’re done, it’s kind of forgotten. That’s not how [to] be an ally." [Hulu]
