Heath Ledger of “Brokeback Mountain”
“Aren’t we at the stage these days when it just doesn’t fucking matter? It’s a story of love and it’s a story between two people. If people can’t get over that and just accept it as a story, then that’s their problem. I’m big enough and brave enough to do it.” – Ledger to the BBC in March 2004

Jesse Bradford of “Heights”
“There are certain risks involved. But it was one of the most heterosexually reaffirming moments of my life. Like, ‘Oh, that’s why I don’t like this. That’s why I always figured I wouldn’t like this.’ Now I know. Now I know for sure.” – Bradford on his kiss with co-star James Marsden to the New York Daily News

Colin Farrell, “A Home at End of the World”
“When you feel his stubble against your lip, it’s repulsive to me, as repulsive to me as for a lot of gay men the idea of putting their tongue near a pussy is – something that, for me, is akin to heaven sometimes.” – Farrell to GQ magazine

Jason Ritter of “Happy Endings”
“I finally understand about stubble … I didn’t even consider using a stand-in. I wouldn’t have missed doing that scene myself.” – Ritter to the San Francisco Chronicle
