He added that talking about sex between same sex couples was taboo, and that only very strong people were willing to talk about it. McKellen went on to say that he got on comfortably with life as an openly gay man without ever really talking about it. At 49 years old, McKellan said he felt comfortable enough as an actor and a person to challenge a law that disadvantaged gay people.
