Michael C. Hall is opening up about his sexuality.
During a recent interview, the 47-year-old former Dexter star revealed the he considers himself “not all the way heterosexual.”
“I think there’s a spectrum,” Michael told The Daily Beast. “I am on it. I’m heterosexual. But if there was a percentage, I would say I was not all the way heterosexual.”
The topic of conversation came up while Michael talked about playing LGBTQ characters including David in Six Feet Under along with Broadway roles Emcee in Cabaret and Hedwig in Hedwig and the Angry Inch.
“I think playing the emcee required me to fling a bunch of doors wide open because that character I imagined as pansexual,” Michael continued. “Yeah, like I made out with Michael Stuhlbarg every night doing that show. I think I have always leaned into any fluidity in terms of my sexuality.”
Michael went on to share that his “craving for emotional intimacy with a man” comes from the death of his father when he was only 11-years-old.
“I’ve never had an intimate relationship with a man,” Michael added. “I think, maybe because of an absent father, there has definitely been a craving for an emotional intimacy with a man…I don’t mean to suggest that an emotional relationship between a father and son is any way homoerotic. I mean an emotional intimacy or connection that at least in the milieu I grew up in was considered fey. I had an appetite to have emotional connections with men beyond beer, sports, and fist-pumping that were considered ‘gay.’ “
Michael married wife Morgan MacGregor back in 2016.
