Coming off a performance on stage in Angels in America - playing a character who abandons his AIDS-stricken boyfriend - Quinto spoke to New York Magazine this week and said the off-Broadway play was "the most challenging thing I've ever done as an actor, and the most rewarding," adding:

"At the same time, as a gay man, it made me feel like there's still so much work to be done, and there's still so many things that need to be looked at and addressed."

Quinto will next be seen on the FX drama American Horror Story.

You are an absolute twit... Who do you think you are speaking about people like that. Do you honestly think that gay people choose their Life style?? So you think they choose the discrimination and bullying etc... It's people like you who reinforce old outdated ways of thinking. I hope you can sleep at night kowing that your comment may lead a poor teenager to commit suicide... So perhap before you open your uneducated mouth you have a think a about the implications of your irresponsible comment, and by the way, go back to junior high and learn how to spell... As you put it... LMAO.... loser!!

He's one of the most masculine guys I've ever seen. Hairier than a shower drain at the Y. Shoots a lot of theories to hell about making assumptions based on testosterone levels.

Oh is a very pity for him why is he gay? he should pray for forgiveness and stop being a gay, because GOD hate gays. How can a man allow his fellow man fuck his anus where toilet come out from? in fact it is a very big problem why don't they ask themselves a question? How come they where born where they born from the anus or from the vagina. Did their father fuck another man anus to made them? or the woman fuck another woman to made them? The thing is man to woman and then woman to man that is the real natural thing ok. peace one love
