Jonathan Groff opens up about dating Zachary Quinto
Looking star Jonathan Groff has opened up about his relationship with ex-boyfriend Zachary Quinto.
The former Glee star was rumoured to be dating the Star Trek star, but the pair were reported to have split in 2013.
Groff spoke openly about his relationships with Quinto and actor Gavin Creel, in an interview with FourTwoNine.
He said: “I feel like in dating actors the nice thing about it is they understand the schedules involved or having to leave for three months to shoot something and all of that.
“But when I was dating Gavin and dating Zach, it was more about the people they were instead of the actors they were, which is the same about the people who aren’t actors that I’ve dated.
“It’s about them as people and not about any careers or jobs they have.”
Of the impact on his own career, he said: “When I came out, I understood that maybe I wouldn’t be the male romantic lead in a Nicholas Sparks movie. And I’m okay with that.
“When I came out, I made peace with the fact that maybe I wouldn’t be a huge movie star or a huge TV star. But I’d rather be a working actor and not hiding anything in my personal life.
“Weirdly, after I came out, I began to get a lot more film and television work. That’s all a way of saying that the reason I don’t mind talking about it over and over is because that is the way acceptance happens, and that’s the way you break down those walls.
He continued: “It’s what Harvey Milk said about coming out to all your friends. It’s important. And the more we talk about it, then the less we’ll finally have to talk about it.
“And for me personally, it feels liberating. I enjoy talking about it because I felt I couldn’t talk about it for so long.”
