Australian actor Hugh Sheridan has spoken out about his sexuality after years of public speculation, saying he has been with both men and women but does not like to describe himself.
Sheridan, 35, best known for his role in “Packed to the Rafters,” wrote in Stellar Magazine that he had a “duty” to speak up to help others struggling to find out for themselves .
He revealed that he was in a relationship with a man when he was younger, but was told that if people thought he was gay or bisexual it would harm his acting career.
He talked about being relentlessly bullied in Adelaide school and being yelled at by an adult that it was “not normal” to have a girl as a close friend during the camp.
When his relationship with the man broke down, he saw a woman but was too embarrassed to tell anyone about his past.
“After moving to Sydney to attend NIDA, I finally met a man I was emotionally, mentally and physically connected with,” he said.
“I was over the moon – I could finally be what people always wanted me to be, so I told everyone.
“In return, I was told that if I were anything but straight I would never find work and that I would have to hide my newfound love.
“To add to the confusion, the two mentors who told me this were openly gay themselves. They tried hard to protect me and actually had my best interests in their hearts. That was just the reality. “
Sheridan was diagnosed with COVID-19 after returning from the United States earlier this year.
He said Stellar Lockdown gave him a chance to think and decided to stand up for people who “didn’t pick a label” when it came to who they loved.
“I never felt like I really knew who I was and I didn’t like the sounds of the labels people were giving me, so I decided not to say anything. But Lockdown gave me time to think and it occurred to me that no one would advocate for people who don’t pick a label, ”he said.
“Where is the person older than me who got out and said, ‘Some people work slower than others’?
“I want to be that person and speak for people who feel in this gray area.
“When I get to know someone romantically, I am not interested in age, gender, sexuality or religion. I am interested in connecting on a human level. Sex has always been very secondary to me. In a way, I feel very blessed now. ”
