Larry King Asks Gina Gershon Why She's a 'Gay Icon', Playing Donatella Versace: VIDEO

Gershon

Larry King spoke with Gina Gershon on his Ora TV program  about her gay fan base and how she channeled Donatella Versace for this weekend's House of Versace Lifetime movie.

"I think gays like me because of Showgirls and because of Bound, those two movies...I dunno, spoke to them and they liked me from there.  And I think gays--when you have them as a fan base, they are loyal, extremely loyal -- I think after that, they were there."

She says she had a different of Showgirls going in than going out:

"Umm...you know, when I went into Showgirls, I was really obsessed with all his Dutch films, you know, Verhoeven's  Dutch films, so I thought it would be really dark and intense...you know, and then I got onto the set and I was like, Oh, wow, this is a different--it was like the Wizard of Oz, going from the black and white to the technicolor. I just thought it was funny, but then I realized I don't think everyone was thinking it was funny.  I just thought, 'Oh, the drag queens will love me after this show.'"

On playing Donatella:

"You know, I listened to everything. I went to sleep listening to her. I listened to her before. But you know, this is the Lifetime version of the movie, and I think sometimes on TV, you know, I guess they like you to be understood. If it were up to me, I wish we could have subtitles, cause sometimes she talks and everything is kind of mushing into everything else."

Tim Gunn Tells Larry King He Spared His Family the 'Disappointment' of Telling Them He Was Gay: VIDEO

Gunn

Project Runway's Tim Gunn tells Larry King on Larry King Now that he never came out to his parents:

"It was a very different time. It was a very different era. And I had a lot of fears about being gay, about what that actually meant. And I had already presented my family with a lot of disappointments and I didn't feel that I wanted to present them with yet this. It's very funny, though. My mother died two years ago. And I think she eventually figured out my sexuality, but we never talked about it. And my father was gone long before. We never once talked about it.”

Gunn expressed relief that it's a different time now and said he respects kids for being able to come out at an early age.

Larry the Cable Guy

In an interview with Larry King on "Larry King Now", Dan "Larry the Cable Guy" Whitney voices his opinion on homosexuality:

"I'm so sick of gay this, gay that. I could care less. It ain't affecting my life at all."

Not exactly a ringing endorsement, but it beats combative antagonism and outright bigotry. Although, his follow-up statement about "Everything offends everybody" could be directed at either side. The full interview can be seen AFTER THE JUMP...
