Thomas Jane says he used to turn gay tricks as a young man




B-movie legend and Hung star Thomas Jane has been in hot water with gays before, mostly because he said he'd leave the show if his character "ended up with a (penis) in my mouth," but don't be so quick to judge. He told the L.A. Times he knows what he's talking about.

"You know, when I was a kid out here in L.A., I was homeless, I didn't have any money and I was living in my car. I was 18. I wasn't averse to going down to Santa Monica Boulevard and letting a guy buy me a sandwich. Know what I mean?" he told the newspaper. He said it was certainly an eye-opening change in his ideas of what life was about, and helped him decide he's heterosexual.

" I think up to a point it's a choice. But I'll tell you what — it's not a choice until you're open enough to experience both male and female sexuality," he added. "Until you've tasted the food, you don't know whether you'll like it or not, as my mom always said."

Um, your mom probably didn't mean that, exactly. But don't worry, it won't keep us from watching Deep Blue Sea or The Mist again whenever they're on TNT.
