Ryan Kwanten's Brother is Gay, But He'd Prefer to Remain a Mystery


In a new interview with The Advocate's Brandon Voss, True Blood's Ryan Kwanten reveals he has a gay brother:

"My youngest brother, Lloyd, is gay. He’s a doctor, so he got every ounce of intelligence in the family. He was probably about 18 when he came out, and I can wholeheartedly tell you that from the day that he did, he was a changed man for the better. The sheer beauty of who he is really came through...There was never an issue (with my family). My parents always encouraged an open channel of communication, so we talked about that and everything else. That’s something lacking in a lot of modern-day families — just talking. It’s almost a lost art form."

Kwanten, however, keeps his own love life to himself:

"It was Einstein who once said, 'The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious.' We almost know too much about far too many actors in this day and age — to the point where it becomes harder and harder to see them as a character. So I’ve always tried to maintain somewhat of an air of mystery."

Movies: Superheroic Chris, Tortured Cary, Magnetic Stephin

Cary Elwes returns to the pain in Saw 3D.


Guestblogger trailers through fingers (too many spoilers) and waits impatiently for the feature. He blogs daily at the Film Experience. Follow him on Twitter @nathanielr.

Halloween is generally a weak movie frame, usually dominated by just one or two wide opening horror films. Last week Paranormal Activity 2 raked in the ticket sales threatening to become the new inexhaustable horror franchise. The previous ubiquitous October champ, Saw, returns for what it's billing as its final outing SAW 3D. If it opens big again, there's no way it's a "final" film. These things never die... much like the murderous monsters they strangely idolize.

Cary_tortures Who'da thunk when we first met Cary Elwes, torturing Rupert Everett with his boy beauty in Another Country or being tortured "to the pain" in The Princess Bride that he'd one day end up so associated with mainstream torture porn?!

Other new films opening in limited release include the buzzy indie horror film MONSTERS, the all star crime caper WILD TARGET with Rupert Everett, Rupert Grint, Emily Blunt and Bill Nighy and the final chapter in the Swedish Millenium series THE GIRL WHO KICKED THE HORNET'S NEST (the first chapter of that series, "Dragon Tattoo," is already being remade for American audiences).
