    I'm more than happy to let you call him "fem-phobic" with "internalized homophobia," @GoldenGrill. If an actor makes a public statement to a major news outlet then obviously anyone who reads that statement may draw whatever conclusion they like, whether that conclusion be accurate or not. I am certainly more inclined to agree with @Jbdesc's conclusions that Mr. Tovey's ability to play both gay and straight characters with ease is because his father made him take on the "tougher" education. I certainly don't need to defend a well-respected gay actor's CV of either his straight or gay roles over his career. His reviews and the acting awards he's been honored with speak for themselves.

    I re saw a few quantico shows last night just to give me more of him..the way he speaks, uses his eyes, those ears gave me something to hang onto while he is kneeling front of me or on top or me on top..oh man does he push buttons..and that voice woof woof..I hope he is around for a long time
    I do love the character he plays so sexy and dark and mysterious and naughty and needy and passionate

    He does seem a bit extreme. As if it were a path leading to hell, but I get it. I know that my mannerisms and speech patterns are much more constrained at work. It was a conscious choice I made during high school and then the military, and it just sort of stuck.

    The article brought back a great memory though. The movie "Beautiful Thing". One of the sweetest gay-themed movies I've ever seen. Anyone else seen it?

    I thought "Beautiful Thing" was a wonderful film for much the same reason stated, that it was a gay themed movie with a happy ending. I'm sure every word was easy for Mr. Tovey to understand but I had the darndest time with the actors' accents. Eventually my ear adjusted and when I bought the DVD, I made sure it had English subtitles! :)

    Two scenes. The one where they were coming home from their first visit to a gay bar feeling joyful and free and made out in the park. And the last scene where they danced together. That last one was corny but oh so sweet.

    I'm going to have to find someplace to stream that movie or break out the old DVD player! :)

    Here's an article a year later by way of some explanation for his "fem-phobic" comments in that interview a year ago:

    I didn't read a single quote there that indicated he actually understood why anyone was upset. What it seems he got out of it:

    1. He's famous, so people listen to him. He has to be careful about what he says because of this.
    2. His comments were "blown out of proportion" by social media. He thinks his comments were as innocuous as commenting on the color of clothing.

    Maybe he expressed some sentiment that he doesn't disparage more effeminate men, but if he did it wasn't included in that article. I'm assuming, therefore, that he didn't say anything along those lines.
