Like many others I love how Jude doesn’t give a damn about what’s considered manly and his anti-bromance campaign but I think many of you don’t fully realize how amazing it is for Jude to be like that.
As a teen, he got bullied for not being manly enough, for being called ‘Jude’ and wanting to be an actor. He got called ‘poof’ and got beaten up regularly - for God knows how long. Yet, he never adapted this toxic way of thinking.
Only a few years after the bullying, in the 90s, he accepted the role of Bosie, playing an openly gay man in a film that’s quite important for the gay community (which is something Jude is really happy about). When asked if he’s manly enough for a Lexus, he replied he’s a healthy mixture of being feminine and masuline and whenever someone just dares to mention the word ‘bromance’ around him, he openly voices his annoyance and just wants it to be called a romance.
The kids in his school could have easily broken Jude or at least change his way of thinking but instead he came out of it stronger and that’s just beautiful and makes me incredibly proud of him.
Hello aaron! I checked all of your tags but i couldnt find the answers you've given to "she/her" and "sue" anons and your posts about what they mean in the gay community. Can you link them pretty please if its not much trouble ? Thank you.
