Oscar nominee Chiwetel Ejiofor says LGBT people have a harder time getting roles in Hollywood than African Americans do.
“I hope this changes, but I think it’s probably harder to be gay,” Ejiofor told The Times. “Sexuality is still marginalized in a way that is pretty open. I think it’s tough.”
Ejiofor, 38, continued he thought gay actors felt the need to hide their sexual orientation causing them to feel “less than” straight actors.
The actor said he had never felt discriminated against for his race in Hollywood since he was nominated for an Oscar in 2013.
He is currently filming his latest project “Doctor Strange” alongside Benedict Cumberbatch and Rachel McAdams.
