After refusing to confirm rumors for some time now, Zachary Quinto, 34, who played Spock in the newest Star Trek movie, has publicly admitted he’s gay. He revealed the truth about his sexuality in an interview with New York Magazine, in order to speak out against bullying. He made a video for the ‘It Gets Better’ campaign to support victimized gay and lesbian teens, saying, “As a gay man I look at that and say there’s a hopelessness that surrounds it, but as a human being I look at it and say Why? Where’s this disparity coming from, and why can’t we as a culture and society dig deeper to examine that? We’re terrified of facing ourselves.” Quinto, who plays a role in the recently-released big screen comedy What’s Your Number? starring Anna Faris, will also reprise his role as Spock in the 2012 Star Trek sequel.
