Best known for playing a serial killer with a conscience on “Dexter”, actor Michael C. Hall is opening up about his sexual fluidity.
In an interview with The Daily Beast, the 47-year-old actor discussed portraying LGBTQ roles, such as his gay character in “Six Feet Under” and the emcee in Broadway musical “Cabaret”, and admitted that his own sexuality is not exactly clearly defined.
“I think there’s a spectrum,” Hall said of sexuality. “I am on it. I’m heterosexual. But if there was a percentage, I would say I was not all the way heterosexual.”
He explained, “I think playing the emcee required me to fling a bunch of doors wide open because that character I imagined as pansexual,” he added. “Yeah, like I made out with Michael Stuhlbarg every night doing that show. I think I have always leaned into any fluidity in terms of my sexuality.”
Asked whether he ever found himself attracted to other men, he replied, “No. I mean, I was attracted to John Cameron Mitchell when I saw “Hedwig [and the Angry Inch]”. But no, as a rule I am heterosexual.”
Hall is currently married to Morgan Mcgregor, whom he wed in 2016; he was previously married to “Dexter” co-star Jennifer Carpenter (from 2008 to 2011), and actress Amy Spanger (2002 to 2007).
