It was refreshing in a way that out of all of Jesse’s problems, he didn’t have a problem with being gay. How did you feel about that going in?
Dane DeHaan: It’s something that always attracted me to the role. Especially on TV and in entertainment today, gay issues are so prominent that the main issue of a gay character is almost always that he is gay, when in fact it’s not really something that has to be addressed or has to be an issue. Jesse has a lot more to deal with than the fact that the people he happens to be attracted to are males. He has a whole slew of problems… In this day and age, I think it’s very important for people who have a problem with homosexuality, or think it’s this or that, to realize that it’s just a natural part of somebody. x
