Okay, so Billy Crystal’s words about how he thinks TV should calm down with showing so much gay sex were taken out of context. Billy never said that he’s sick of TV shows shoving hot, hard, sweaty, long gay sex scenes in his face. He said that he doesn’t really want to see ANY sex scenes, not just the gay ones. Remind me to never watch TV with Billy Crystal.
During a panel at the Television Critics Association Press Tour this past weekend, Billy Crystal said that he thinks TV is pushing it a little too far with the sex scenes and he hopes it doesn’t become an every day thing. Billy made those comments right after talking about playing one of the first openly gay characters in Soap, so many critics and reporters thought his comments were about man-on-man action. A gay editor from Xfinity was there and after the panel, he told Billy that many other critics and reporters asked if he was offended by what was said. Billy responded like this:
“First of all, I don’t understand why there would be anything offensive that I said. When it gets too far either visually… now, that world exists because it does for the hetero world, it exists, and I don’t want to see that either. But when I feel it’s a cause, when I feel it’s ‘You’re going to like my lifestyle,’ no matter what it is, I’m going to have a problem and there were a couple of shows I went ‘I couldn’t watch that with somebody else.’ That’s fine. If whoever writes it or produces it…totally get it. It’s all about personal taste.”
Because of the line about “lifestyles,” it sound like Billy is specifically talking about gay stuff, but he tells The Hollywood Reporter that he doesn’t want to see any naked bodies bumping up against each other. Billy then threw pebbles at The Hollywood Reporter and screamed at them to get off of his lawn.
“What I meant was that whenever sex or graphic nudity of any kind (gay or straight) is gratuitous to the plot or story it becomes a little too much for my taste.”
More fuck scenes for me then! It’s actually a good thing that Billy Crystal doesn’t like any kind of sex scenes, because that means he’ll probably never do a raunchy ass sex scene, which means we’ll never see him get his ass eaten out in Girls or get butt boned while holding onto a tree in Looking. I know, that’s bad news for those of you sucio fucks who want to see that.
