Los Angeles premiere of 'The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies'

Lee Pace was asked if labels himself as a gay actor and he said “I’ve dated men. I’ve dated women. I don’t know why anyone would care. I’m an actor and I play roles. To be honest, I don’t know what to say—I find your question intrusive.” [Dlisted]

    I’ve had the biggest crash on Lee back when that “Miss Pettigrew” movie was out. He is a lovely, lovely man.

    • Olenna says:

      Yes, he is and his voice is so, so sexy.

      • Rhys says:

        His voice is heavenly. It’s a draw for me between Lee Pace and Tom Hiddleston when it comes to voice.

    • Lightpurple says:

      I found him distractingly beautiful in Lincoln. Like okay, yes, the Lincolns are doing this important stuff and DDL is amazing and Tommy Lee Jones character is really doing interesting things and look James Spader but can we please put the camera back on that gorgeous man in Congress?

      • Digital Unicorn (aka Betti) says:

        He is mighty fine but I still would with James Spader *swoon*. Better still they can both read to me – at the same time, that would be the best experience EVER!!

      • deets says:

        Oh god yes. I love Spaders voice.

    • pwal says:

      @Rhys… yes, he did, withvthat peach fuzz. I watched him Pushing Daisies, but the camera lived him in that movie.

    • Betsy says:

      Me too, but it’s weird because you look and he shouldn’t be attractive because things don’t seem like they’re in the right place…. but he really, really is.

  2. Jennifer says:

    I don’t care who he dates, I’m angry that he doesn’t have his glorious long gold Elven hair ALL THE TIME.

  3. Incredulous says:

    Good for you, Lee. Also, that top picture gives me weird younger Robert Mueller vibes. Anyone else?

  4. Lotal says:

    I love Lee Pace

  5. Krill says:

    I’m sorry but Lee Pace full quote makes him look ridiculous. He began by saying that he believes that gay roles should be played by gay actors and he said it in the context of the fact that he is currently playing a gay character in what is being referred to as a “gay play”. How can he fault the interviewer for asking the most obvious follow up question? He was laying out breadcrumbs and then got all offended at someone following his own prompts. Interviewer probably thought he wanted to officially come out and was trying to be helpful.

    • Jenns says:

      Yeah. I’m not sure what he expected. He walked right into that one.

    • Mina says:

      Context is so important.

    • Reef says:

      lol, yeah. I had to read that section a couple of times. Mr. Pace, are you ok? Glass closet actors that take gay roles and then get offended or dance around questions about their sexuality while promoting said gay role confuse me.

    • Hikaru says:

      This. Also, how are we supposed to make sure that gay roles are being played by gay actors when even established actors like him insist on staying in the closet and consider all sexuality talk intrusive – even in relation to the conversation they themselves started?

    • HelenaTroy says:

      Exactly. I’m getting tired of this pretentiousness. You wanna stay in the closet? Great, keep quiet. Bug if you begin with a statement like his, then don’t play offended by the journalists or the people being curious. Own it, man.

    • Sunny says:

      “He began by saying that he believes that gay roles should be played by gay actors ”

      Sorry, I’m a bit surprised with such concept. Actors are supposed to play anything, any role. For example, does it mean that roles of mentally deranged characters in movies should be played only by actual real psychos?

    • DesertReal says:

      Wait, wait, wait!
      Hold on a second, here.
      …Hes dated women?

  6. Nina says:

    I can’t really deal with Jimmy Fallon anymore so I almost skipped it but that videooooo…OMG. ALL THE TEARS. <3

  7. adastraperaspera says:

    The Red Sparrow trailer wasn’t very compelling. Made me want to go see Atomic Blond again.

  8. Clairej says:

    He is such a damm fine man. He is gorgeous and did things to me dressed as an elf Orlando never did. Plus he seems nice.

  9. Lucy says:

    I found out about SZA through her awesome collab with Rihanna and now I love her voice so much. All The Stars is probably one of the most beautiful songs I’ve listened to this year. Love what she had to say to GQ.

  10. Anastasia says:

    Whoever Lee Pace is, he’s a very attractive man.

  11. Rachel says:

    I have a massive crush on Lee…Halt and Catch Fire was one of my favorite shows ever and he is just so sexy; my heart raced when I saw this because he’s hardly ever discussed!

    • hindulovegod says:

      I thought he was attractive before I watched Halt & Catch Fire. After, I can’t get enough. The show often hinges on his magnetism, and it totally works. You understand why people would make such bad decisions to be with him.

      • KBB says:

        Good to know. I loved him in Pushing Daisies and Halt and Catch Fire has been on my list of things to watch but I just haven’t gotten around to it. But you’ve convinced me! I’m going to start this weekend.

  12. Tiffany says:

    No, the question that should have been asked is what is going on with him and Richard Armitage.

    That is one hot couple.

    • Rhys says:

      Oh, yes! How hot are they together? I’ve only seen one picture of them together and there hasn’t been a confirmation if they ARE indeed a couple, but they look very fine together.

    • Malificent says:

      Yep. That was the elf/dwarf romance that we all really wanted to see in The Hobbit.

    • trollontheloose says:

      He’s with a 27 year-old male model now and has been since summer..He even went to some of his runaways in Paris and London and they spent New Year’s eve in Costa Rica

    • Jellybean says:

      I don’t think anyone should have to answer questions about their romantic/sex lives. Lee Pace doesn’t really interest me, but Richard Armitage is a sexy man, regardless of what he enjoys in the bedroom. I can’t help but think that when people on line stop making a fuss, then actors will come out naturally – they are not obliged to be figureheads for the LGBT community, they are actors not politicians or activists.

    • H says:

      Rich and Lee we’re together for about 5 years. Rumor on another site is Pace wanted to come out and Richard did not, hence break up. But yeah, they were adorable together and were able to keep it quiet (unless you count Sir Ian’s announcement).

      • HelenaTroy says:

        If Pace was so eager to come out, his current fuss makes even less sense. I don’t buy the willingness to come out.

  13. Penfold says:

    Honking for Lee Pace!

    The Fall was an incredible movie. Check it out if you’re a fan of Lee’s.

    • Anners says:

      Ooh thanks! I’ll watch him in anything. He’s beautiful and his voice is divine!

    • the other bronte sister says:

      Yes!! The Fall is everything. I LOVE this man.

      • ArtHistorian says:

        The Fall is just such a gorgeous movie on all levels. it is the movie that made me a fan of Eiko Ishioka’s costume designs. She collaborated with Tarsem Sing on thre movies before her death: The cell (svially gorgeous but so very disturbing and uncomfortable to watch), The Fall and Mirror Mirror (that movie showed that she mastered comedic costume as well)

  14. Yikes says:

    Had no idea there were gay rumors about him and don’t care. I like him.

  15. Mina says:

    Red Sparrow is not really a feminist movie, in the sense of female empowerement, but I wouldn’t call it a sexual fantasy for men either (unless they are sadists, since 99% of all the nude or sexual scenes are horrific and violent). It’s more about a culture that sees human lives as completely disposable and women get the worst part for sure.

  16. Gaby says:

    He’s just beautiful!

  17. Sarah says:

    I would climb Lee like a tree, if he’d allow it! And he’s a great actor and seems like a good guy. :)

    • Mira Belle says:

      @sarah the “climb like a tree” expression never fails to give me the giggles. I would climb him like a gay tree, a straight tree. Just want to be all up in his forest.

  18. K says:

    I don’t care who he dates, because that doesn’t affect his acting! The only people who care about that are possessive fans who are in it more because they’re attracted to him than care about his talent, and I don’t blame him for maybe feeling uncomfortable around those types of nosy fans and/or interviewers. He can keep his relationships relatively private while also being pro-gay actors playing gay characters, or rooting for more representation in general.

  19. Talia says:

    No wonder. He is elf.

  20. TaniaOG says:

    I couldn’t care less if Lee Pace is gay. He’s hot AF and a fine actor. I’d watch anything he did.

  21. Shijel says:

    Good luck finding any women he’s dated since like… high school or something though? I don’t think he’s even had beards?

    We’ve heard this ‘I’ve dated and loved both men and women’ and then when the career starts slowing down, these male actors just come out as gay. Giving momentum to that horrible stereotype that all bisexual men are really just gay.

    Glass closet, and funny too considering how he just walked into a trap he set for himself in that interview. Like, it definitely did read like he’s ready to come out, but got cold feet at the very last second.

    Everybody in the industry knows you’re gay, fans know you’re gay, Ian McKellen outed you, Armitage AND Luke Evans (who I think was out before the Hobbit but quickly scrambled back in for promotional purposes I guess), and nobody rightly cares. Well, nobody but other LGBT people to whom this pussyfooting around the glass closet sends a pretty discouraging and exasperating message.

    Just.. tired I guess, being one of those LGBT kids.

  22. Layla Love says:

    Another Gay actor…nothing to see here except his talent . Can we PLEASE move on and up from this rude, intrusion on a persons PRIVATE life ?

    • Turtle says:

      He is playing an iconic role of a gay man in an iconic gay-themed play written by an out gay playwright and was, himself, talking about gay actors playing such roles, when he was asked how he, then defines himself. How is that intrusive?

  23. bikki says:

    Lee Pace is so delicious <3 I've loved the films/TV series he's been in.
