What did Willie Garson say about playing a gay character on Sex and the City?

On Sex and the City, Garson portrayed the role Stanford Blatch, one of TV’s most memorable gay characters.

In a 2020 interview with PageSix, Garson opened up about why he never liked talking about how he was actually straight in real life.

“For years I didn’t talk about it because I found it to be offensive to gay people,” Garson said. “People playing gay characters jumping up and down screaming that they’re not gay, like that would somehow be a bad thing if they were.”

Garson continued: “When the question would come up during the show I would say, ‘When I was on White Collar no one ever asked me if I was a conman, and when I was on NYPD Blue, nobody ever asked me if I was a murderer. This is what we do for a living, portray people,’”

Despite his successful career, Garson went on to reveal that his character put a damper on his dating life.

“At the beginning, you would approach someone at a bar and realize, ‘Oh, they want to be Stanford’s best friend.’ They don’t necessarily want to sleep with you,” he said.

While Garson never got married, he found great joy in being a father to Nathan, 19, who he adopted in Los Angeles back in 2009.
