Ian McKellen Compares Hiding Secret Gay Life To Nazi Hell For Jews
The revered thespian was 49 when he 'came out' about his sexuality and admits he had a terrible time trying to hide the truth.
He tells Details magazine, "It was illegal for me to do (things) as a private person. Outside London, where I lived, there was no gay pub or bar you could go to. And even if you found one, it was, 'Knock three times and ask for Louis'. It was horrible living this secret life. You could feel a little bit what it was like to be a Jew in central Europe during a certain period. It was horrible."
