Jonathan Groff Talks to Scene Mag about Coming Out and Internet Gossip, Flashes Pits While Doing So


Jonathan Groff looks so hunky and cool on the cover of Scene magazine’s latest issue, provided exclusively to

Here’s what the 29-year-old Normal Heart star [He is also the star of HBO's Looking, Jared! Season Two starts filming soon!] had to share with the mag:

On not coming out until after Spring Awakening: “I knew I would talk about it someday, but I didn’t know how or why or when. But then I fell in love for the first time after the show, and I thought ‘Well I’d rather be out and be in love with this person than try to hide it for any job I had when I came out,’ so I just said fuck it. Being in love was more powerful than any job I’d had before. That was the impetus.”

On social media: “I haven’t googled myself in five years. I stay completely unhooked when it comes to social media.”

[So relieved to hear this -- I can now be as creepy as I like about him on ontd and he'll never know.]

On word of mouth when it came to ex Zachary Quinto: “I heard from friends of friends or whatever that like, ‘This picture was online’ or ‘I saw you and Zach walking down the street.’ So I’d know that things like that existed, but I dont ever look at it.”



[He's an action star! He's running!]
