I’m the only person out of the closet at my school. And I tried to stay strong about it but there’s this Neanderthal who’s made it his mission to make my life a living hell. And nobody seems to notice.
It’s interesting because now, on this season of [Scream Queens], it’s been this whole thing with the guys taking their shirts off and having the sexy guys on the show. It’s kind of nice just for a little while to put them in the spotlight and be like, ‘Be hot, get us viewers and do your job.“ [Chelsea Handler: Exactly. They should have to be subjected to all the things that women are subjected to.] Exactly. And it’s crazy. I definitely think that people make such a big deal when women take their clothes off, and when girls are naked, it’s like this huge deal; not so much when it’s guys. But at the end of the day, I find that men are so much more self-conscious about having to take their shirts off and have, like, naked scenes. Way more than you would think that they would be. Any time I’ve ever worked with any guy who had to do even just a shirtless scene, they were on, like, a sweet potato diet and no water for three months and freaking out. Or if they would see it in the script, they’d be like, “Oh my God! I have to take my shirt off!” We’d be like, “It’s Glee! Relax!” You know? It’s such a big deal. […] Any guy I’ve dated or worked with, it’s always, like - they’re so much more insecure about how they look and I think women need to remember that. Because we’re out there all the time, like, “Do they see this? Do they see that?” […]
Q: “What did you do for your “Glee” audition?” A: “I sang about 12 songs: some Indigo Girls, Sara Bareilles, maybe a David Bowie song, I think some Talking Heads. Like, weird songs you would never think to sing for a “Glee” audition. [Laughs]” (x)
Okay, but like, I NEED to know which Indigo Girls songs she sang. For reasons.
