It didn’t take long for Handler to bring up Colfer’s sexual orientation.
Said Handler, “Your character on the show’s gay. We know that you’re gay. That’s good for you. Congratulations, don’t be shy about that.
“Seriously… you shouldn’t be shy about that because every time an actor like you is helping a zillion other people that are scared to talk about their sexuality so good for you,” she said.
“You know what my answer to that question was prior to coming out, was that I was straight as every other actor in Hollywood,” responded Colfer.
“I don’t know who you’re referring to. I’ve never seen Valkyrie…,” quipped Handler.
