The Beauty and the Beast star, who came out in an interview with The Advocate at 22, has managed to keep his private life out of the spotlight while carving a hugely successful film career for himself. In an interview with The Jackal earlier this year, the hunky actor insisted that believes his sexuality should have no bearing on his status as a leading Hollywood man. luke ev “I don’t think about it. I don’t feel they’re connected. Talent, success, what you do in your personal life – I don’t see how one should have an effect on the other. I don’t think I’d be in this business if I felt that I was not being employed because of who I am in my personal life,” Evans said. “As an actor you have to keep some sort of enigma and mystery. There’s a dignity to keeping private. I’m trying to keep a bit of dignity to my private life and to protect the people in my life. Like my family. They don’t do press.
