Has Eminem, 42, been playing “gay peek-a-boo” with us all along? In a recently released clip from The Interview, which finally hit theaters on Christmas Day despite terrorist threats from North Korea, Eminem is a guest on James Franco‘s characters talk show in which he admits to being a homosexual. Whoa!
Eminem Admits To Being A Gay Man In ‘The Interview’
Eminem is just one of many celebrity cameos in The Interview, but his fake one-on-one is definitely the funniest to watch.
In what appears to be a very serious interview, despite James’ try-too-hard TV persona, Eminem talks about things he’s afraid of. Some of those things include rapping about women, which he reveals is his way of dealing with his past issues with his mom and his ex-wife.
Then, out of nowhere, he says: “Or, you know, when I say things about gay people and people think that my lyrics are homophobic, you know, it’s because I’m gay.”
He continues to talk, but James’ character is completely flabbergasted. And rightfully so!
Seth Rogen Acts As A Showrunner In ‘The Interview’
While James is trying to get Eminem to continue talking about his sexuality, which he randomly said during his interview, we see Seth Rogen in the production room freaking out.
“Eminem just said he was gay. Four times!” Seth yells as their phones all start ringing and the entire room goes into a frenzy.
“This is the greatest moment in gay history!”
Um, hilarious! You HAVE to watch the full clip above to see Eminem talk more about his “sexuality.”
