Adam DeVine is on his press tour for Isn’t It Romantic, the anti-rom-com with Rebel Wilson and Liam Hemsworth, and he recently revealed that Hemsworth would be his heartthrob of choice.
In the film, Wilson has a gay sidekick played by Brandon Scott, so when asked who’d play his gay sidekick that he falls for, DeVine told the Dallas Voice, that’d it have to be his Aussie co-star.
“I mean, Liam. If I’m a gay dude, I want the hunk. I’m goin’ hunky!” Finally, a straight man with taste. Interviewer Azzopardi teases that this is the film Hollywood needs to make: and we’d pay $20 to watch that.
DeVine then went on to share how gay Twitter has been educating him on his queer social status:
“I’ve been told that I’m a bear cub, so I’m not a full-on bear. I think I’m too tiny, so I’m a bear cub is what my gay buddies tell me”. He went on, “I’m not afraid to ‘scape. I manscape. And I think that’s important. I don’t want puffy T-shirts, that’s the issue. That’s the reason I do it”.
And don’t think the wave of thirst amongst the gay community after his full-frontal scene in Game Over, Man went unnoticed, recounting:
“I noticed some fan blogs, and I’m like, “Oh, cool, a fan blog, they’re spreading the word,” and then I’m just like, “Oh, it’s very gay and it’s just every naked photo I’ve ever taken.”
Sorry bout it?
DeVine was also asked how he was determined as the bottom out of his co-stars Blake Henderson, and Andres Holm, for a gay threeway in Workoholics, which he put down to that booty.
“I don’t know how or why. I think my ass is kind of on and poppin’, so that must’ve been it”.
Also along his press junket, were New Now Next, who he told “it’s very flattering to have that support,” of the queer community.
“It’s funny because my first manager, TV producer Eddie October, is gay. After seeing me do a stand-up set at the Hollywood Improv Comedy Club when I was 21, he came up to me, like, ‘You’re going to be a star.’”
“He was putting together this all-gay stand-up show that I couldn’t do because I’m a straight boy, but he wanted to make a tape of me doing stand-up, so we filmed my set at The Abbey in front of an all-gay audience,” Adam continued. “It was an awesome experience. Afterward, he was like, ‘You have no idea how many gay fans you’re going to have.’ He called it.”
Yes he did!
