In an interview with British GQ, Jonathan discussed the piece of advice given to one of his gay actor friends and how it had “stuck” with him. What he actually stated was: “”There are two things we don’t want to know: if you’re an alcoholic or if you’re gay,” they had told him. It only takes one of those powerful people to say something like that for it to have repercussions.”
