Michael Urie's Quotes

  • It's a business of perception. My being perceived as queer is likely not going to affect the jobs I get, but with certain people it might. Coming out can ruin your career. My career is not based on people believing me with a woman. If it was, I'd be in trouble. If George Clooney came out, he'd be in trouble. Suddenly people would say, 'Wait, he doesn't like what I see him doing? Now I don't believe it.' When you have 20 people who have to agree to cast somebody in a role, a little thing like that could be a really big thing to them.
  • Certainly there was a point where I was like, I don't know how long Ugly Betty is going to last and how well it's going to do, and I might want some real anonymity if it ends quickly. I was also never one to seek out publicity or attention, and I basically didn't want to be labeled. That kind of attention could turn ugly. I guess if I wasn't in a relationship with a man and I tried to tell people I was queer, it would appear to be a lie or a cop-out-Γ  la college 10 years ago, when people believed in that notion of 'bi now, gay later.' But things are different now. I'm much more comfortable, and I'm in a relationship now. I'm not as worried about a future for myself.
  • I'm not fashionable. And here I am, playing two people in the fashion world, one of which has to hide the fact that he's gay in order to succeed, the other of which is successful because he's gay.
  • I've never been in. I've never said I was straight, and I'm not saying I'm gay now. I never lie, and I've never shied away from the topic. I've certainly chosen through my work to do things that promote the rights of LGBTQ people. I am not a hypocrite-certainly not now.
  • I've been in a relationship for a while now, and if you just met the two of us together we'd be 'gay'. But that somehow means anything that happened before [we met] didn't count-and I don't feel that way. I know that some people feel that way. They were with women, but it always felt wrong. But it didn't for me. It felt right at the time. It didn't work out, but it also didn't work out with other men-many times. That's why 'gay' never seemed right.
