From bullied gay kid in Wales to out and proud Hollywood leading man – Luke Evans is Attitude’s Man of the Year, supported by Virgin Atlantic.
“In a way it sort of feels like the right time for it to happen,” Luke Evans says of our interview – the Hollywood star’s first with a gay magazine since his profile went global.
“I’ve talked about being gay many times in other things, but this just feels right, after this year and everything that we’ve all been through. We’ve all got a story to tell, and a journey that we’ve all been on, and we’re still here.”
In a year which saw him release his debut album and start shooting for his first gay screen role opposite Nicole Kidman and Melissa McCarthy in television’s Nine Perfect Strangers, being crowned Attitude Man of the Year, supported by Virgin Atlantic, has given Luke a rare opportunity to pause and reflect on just how much how his life has changed a decade after he first swapped the West End stage for screen roles in The Hobbit and Fast & Furious franchises.
