[ad_1] Nicholas Galitzine is definitely the man of the moment right now, but the British star has opened up about the toll his new-found fame has taken on him. The actor has been on the rise in recent years thanks to his roles in Red, White & Royal Blue, Mary & George, Bottoms and, most recently, The Idea Of You with Anne Hathaway. His various romantic roles have quickly landed Nicholas heartthrob status, but he’s admitted he’s not always found it easy to be seen as such. “I think the most important thing to me is that I’m taken seriously as a performer,” he shared in a recent interview with GQ Hype. “I’m not gonna ask you to cry me a river here, but it’s been difficult being part of a conversation that feels very much like I am a cut of beef at a meat market,” he said of the overly objectifying attitude that can pervade his work and personal life. “I think that being my defining feature is something I’m constantly terrified of.” …

[ad_1] After rising to fame by playing queer characters in the rom-com Red, White & Royal Blue and the drama miniseries Mary & George, Nicholas Galitzine is clearing the air about his own sexuality. “I identify as a straight man,” Nicholas said in a new British GQ interview published on Wednesday. “But I have been a part of some incredible queer stories.” The British actor admitted he felt torn about taking on so many LGBTQ+ roles because of his heterosexuality. “I felt a sense of uncertainty sometimes about whether I’m taking up someone’s space, and perhaps guilt,” he explained. “At the same time, I see those characters as not solely their sexuality.” Nicholas with co-star Taylor Zakhar Perez in Red, White And Royal Blue Jonathan Prime/Prime Video The Idea of You star went on to clarify that the characters he plays on screen are totally separate from who he is off the clock, adding: “I am Nick, and I’m not my role.” Speaking with HuffPost UK, the English actor explained the “plethora of reasons” why …

One thing that seems to re-occur, however, is queerness. “There’s sort of a plethora of reasons for this”, the actor tell us. “One, I have so many friends within the community, and I know …
