Jude Law Says Dumbeldore Isn't Explicitly Gay Since "Your sexuality doesn’t necessarily define you"


– In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Jude Law broke his silence about playing a straightwashed character after director David Yates spilled the beans and then Rowling got mad at him for telling anyone what she didn't do, again. Law explained that he asked Rowling about it, and she confirmed that he's gay (lol that he had to ask?), but he goes on to say that humans are "multifaceted" and that "your sexuality doesn't necessarily define you."
– Law also said that he does not share any scenes with Depp in the film and that "this is only Part 2 of a longer story", hinting that we could see more about Dumbeldore's sexuality in future blockbuster films. Interview quotes below:

There was some uproar earlier this year when director David Yates told EW the character not “explicitly gay” in this film. What’s your take on how apparent Dumbledore’s sexuality should be?
"Jo Rowling revealed some years back that Dumbledore was gay. That was a question I actually asked Jo and she said, yes, he’s gay. But as with humans, your sexuality doesn’t necessarily define you; he’s multifaceted. I suppose the question is: How is Dumbledore’s sexuality depicted in this film? What you got to remember this is only the second Fantastic Beasts film in a series and what’s brilliant about Jo’s writing is how she reveals her characters, peels them to the heart over time. You’re just getting to know Albus in this film, and there’s obviously a lot more to come. We learn a little about his past in the beginning of this film, and characters and their relationships will unfold naturally which I’m excited to reveal. But we’re not going to reveal everything all at once."

Obviously, Dumbledore had a relationship with Grindelwald. What’s that relationship like at this point in time? And what was it like working with Johnny Depp?
"I don’t actually have any scenes with Johnny. As I said before, this is only Part 2 of a longer story. I’ve always admired him from afar, but we don’t know each other, and I’ve not yet met him on this. In many ways that suits the relationship as it’s been many years since they’ve seen each other. So there’s complexity in that that’s fun to mine. Again, the past will reveal itself."








ONTD, does your sexuality define you?
