Some girl wrote me “I think you should be on Glee, you could play Blaine’s dad”. And I never respond, I mean I don’t generally respond, but I wrote back, I was like, “You’ve got a lot of fucking nerve”. To a child, I’m sure. Blaine’s dad? Are you out of your goddamn mind? I was just filled with rage. And I was like, that means I’m also Matt Bomer’s father. I was so pissed. And I had friends over at the time, they were like “Don’t write her back, don’t write her back”. I was like, “No, I’m writing her back”. So mad. To be Matt Bomer’s father.
The best way to get kids to read a book is to say: ‘This book is not appropriate for your age, and it has all sorts of horrible things in it like sex and death and some really big and complicated ideas, and you’re better off not touching it until you’re all grown up. I’m going to put it on this shelf and leave the room for a while. Don’t open it.
