Wentworth Miller felt he was "feeding a fantasy" before announcing that he is gay.
The former Prison Break star, who opened up about his sexuality for the first time last August, says he has a better relationship with his fans now.
"I feel more fully expressed. After Prison Break, I came to grips with the fact that my public persona was in misalignment with how I actually felt. I was out to a handful of people in my twenties, and once I hit 30, I was out to family and friends. But professionally, I was feeding a fantasy. I created this air of 'We don't address that thing,'" the 42-year-old actor told Details magazine.
Asked if he felt like he was lying about his sexuality in the past, he said, "My face was on billboards, and I thought it was my job to act a certain way. But I think audiences knew to a certain degree. The people onscreen aren't the characters they're playing. They're our projection of who we want them to be. I think it's possible to have a man-crush if you're not gay or to have a crush on a guy you know to be gay if you're a woman."
Lady Gaga doesn't feel "threatened" by her boyfriend's sex scenes.
The "Applause" hitmaker doesn't mind Taylor Kinney - whom she has been dating for three years - getting close to his Chicago PD co-star Sophia Bush because she is confident in their romance and understands he is just doing his job.
"[Gaga is] an artist through and through. There's no part of her that doesn't understand our job or thinks it's weird. I thinks she's probably the least threatened woman on the planet," Sophia said.
Sophia also admitted her first encounter with the 28-year-old singer - whose real name is Stefani Germanotta - was "a little strange" because she had already shot intimate scenes with Taylor at that point: "It's always a little strange to meet the love of someone's life after you've swapped spit with their partner! But she's just the loveliest human being and so warm and welcoming - I've been such a huge fan of her for so long."
Vanessa and Nick Lachey are expecting a baby girl.
The TV star's singer-songwriter husband has revealed his wife is pregnant after announcing the big news on Twitter today. Nick tweeted a picture with the words "It's a girl" written in the sand on a beach, and said it was a great way to celebrate their third wedding anniversary.
"Can't think of a better way to celebrate 3 years of marriage to my beautiful @VanessaLachey than this! #family" he wrote.
The couple got married in 2011 after five years of dating, and welcomed son Camden into the world in September 2012. They recently admitted they wanted to add to their family, and Nick had said he would love to have a daughter - although she will have her work cut out for her to be as well-behaved as her big brother. "We won't wait too much longer. I really want to have a little girl ... Cam's got the best temperament ever, we can't imagine having a better kid than we do. He's an angel," Nick previously said.
Gary Oldman has spoken out to defend Mel Gibson over his anti-Semitic behavior.
The Dark Knight Rises actor has blasted the "political correctness" which has seen the Lethal Weapo actor shunned from the movie world over racist and anti-Jewish slurs he is alleged to have made in recent years: "I just think political correctness is crap. That's what I think about it. I think it's like, take a f***ing joke. Get over it."
Mel is said to have made anti-Jewish slurs while being arrested for drink-driving in Malibu, California in 2006 with police reporting that he told his arresting police officer, "F***ing Jews ... the Jews are responsible for all the wars in the world."
"As women, we are constantly told that we need to compare ourselves to a girl in school, to our co-workers, to the images in a magazine... How is the world going to advance if we’re always comparing ourselves to others? I admire Jennifer Lawrence, but she’s everyone’s favorite person to compare me to. Is it because we both have short hair and a vagina? I see us as separate individuals. And that’s important. As women, our insecurities are based on all these comparisons. And that creates distress."
- Divergent star Shailene Woodley explains why she told Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show that "Comparisons always lead to despair" when the SNL alum asked her how she feels being compared to Jennifer Lawrence (to which the audience booed at her response).

Kristen Wiig used to worry that she was too old for Hollywood.
The 40-year-old star - who shot to fame with her hit comedy Bridesmaids in 2011 - was concerned she was too old to make it in the industry after the excitement of moving to Hollywood wore off and she realized other most other aspiring actresses were far younger than her.
"When I first moved there, there was 'the dream,' as there is for a lot of people. Then I got really scared. I moved there and I was like, 'Oh, I don't have any experience,' and I was surrounded by people a lot younger than I am, a lot better looking than I am, who've been acting for a while, who've been taking classes, who already have agents and I just felt like, 'Oh, there's a lot of work I have to do.'"
The Secret Life of Walter Mitty actress first decided to pursue a career in acting during a class at an art college in Arizona, and although she struggled to find work after moving to Los Angeles she admits she came into her own after she joined an improv group, The Groundlings: "I was like, 'Oh my God, I love it,' which was weird because I was terrified of being on stage. But the idea of being someone else and not myself didn't scare me as much."
Lana Del Rey thinks that feminism "isn't interesting."
The "West Coast" singer, who is set to release her new album Ultraviolence this month, insists that she doesn't find feminism "an interesting concept," and admits she is often bored when people talk to her about it.
"For me, the issue of feminism is just not an interesting concept... Whenever people bring up feminism, I'm like, God. I'm just not really that interested. I'm more interested in, you know, SpaceX and Tesla, what's going to happen with our intergalactic possibilities," she said.
However, the star went on to explain that her idea of a true feminist is a woman who "feels free enough to do whatever she wants."
Meanwhile, the star, who debuted the title track from her new album yesterday on YouTube, also spoke about video footage taken by a fan of her crying on stage last year during a gig in Dublin, Ireland. "I'd been sick on tour for about two years with this medical anomaly that doctors couldn't figure out. That's a big part of my life: I just feel really sick a lot of the time and can't figure out why. I'd gotten these shots in Russia, where we'd just been. It was just heavy. It's just heavy performing for people who really care about you, and you don't really care that much about yourself sometimes," she explained.
Nicki Minaj would like to get married on a beach.
The "Starships" hitmaker, who has recently sparked rumors she's engaged to her boyfriend of 10 years Safaree Samuels, has already starting planning her big day and has an ideal location in mind.
"I'd want it to be on a beach somewhere, like Turks and Caicos," she said.
The 31-year-old rapper has also already lined up her dresses for her big day and is adamant she'll have at least three wardrobe changes throughout the romantic event: "I'm gonna have 10 [dresses] ... OK, maybe more like three -- a big princess dress, something short I can dance in at the party and then an Alexander McQueen gown that's sexy and figure-hugging."
Benedict Cumberbatch once "joke-punched" a journalist for bad-mouthing Keira Knightley.
The Atonement star defended his stunning co-star by lashing out after a member of the press reportedly said something rude about her at an event.
"When I saw him [Benedict] again, I said, 'Did you punch a journalist?' and he was like, 'I f***ing did.' Everybody needs a friend like that," Keira recalled.
Despite her budding friendship with Benedict, 37, one thing the pals won't be doing together is karaoke as the 29-year-old actress hates singing in front of people. "I hate karaoke. Like, I really, really hate it. I have to be so drunk I'm nearly about to fall down before I sing in front of anybody. It just terrifies me. But, also, among the people you go with, there will be somebody who secretly has an amazing voice, and you're just like, 'F*ck off,'" she explained.
Usher believes that Justin Bieber needs to "manage" his own life now that he's an adult.
The rapper has mentored the pop heartthrob since his career took off at the age of just 13, seven years ago, but he hasn't tried to stage an intervention following Justin's recent run-ins with the law and bad publicity as he insists the youngster needs to learn from his own mistakes.
"I gave every bit of advice and always told him it was up to him if he really wanted this. Now that he has it, as an adult, it's his to manage. Do I turn my head in shame based off of what I see, what I know? Nah, I don't because it's all part of life's process. Am I in it with him? Yeah," Usher said in Nylon.
Usher, 35, was mentored by Diddy from the age of 15, so he understands why it's important to have someone else in the industry looking out for you. "Artistic development made me who I am. Somebody took the time to help me find what it is that works for me as an entertainer and who I am as a music maker," he explained.
