Actor Leslie Jordan talked to Ellen about his appearance on her sitcom in the 1990’s where he played a straight man.

“It was a little bit after your announcement that changed everything, when you told everyone you were gay,” he said. “So I thought, ‘Oh, wow, I get to be on this gay sitcom!'”

“I get the script and I’m playing a straight guy!” he said, disappointed.

“I open my mouth and 50 yards of purple chiffon come out,” he joked.

Jordan said that he tried to “butch it up,” but a friend told him… that he was less than successful.

“He said, ‘There was a big group of people here that didn’t know you, and when you opened your mouth they said, ‘Get a load of her!'”

Ellen asked the Call Me Kat actor about a photo he posted to Instagram where he had a six-pack, and Jordan explained that he was living in Miami at the time, 26-years-old, and had a job exercising race horses. He said he still likes riding horses.
