Jonathan Groff On Coming Out After SPRING AWAKENING & Zachary Quinto Romance

Jonathan Groff On Coming Out After SPRING AWAKENING & Zachary Quinto RomancePopular stage and screen star Jonathan Groff is riding a career high with his recent starring role in the mega-successful Disney animated movie musical FROZEN as well as his recently renewed new HBO series LOOKING as well as his memorable featured role in Ryan Murphy's hit HBO film adaptation of Larry Kramer's The Normal Heart and the actor opens up about coming out as well as a famous romance as part of a new interview.

Addressing his decision to come out immediately following his turn starring in the original cast of SPRING AWAKENING on Broadway, Groff shares, "I wasn't denying it or anything. I knew I would talk about it someday, but I didn't know how or why or when. But then I fell in love for the first time after the show, and I thought 'Well I'd rather be out and be in love with this person than try to hide it for any job I had when I came out,' so I just said f*ck it."

Groff elaborates, "Being in love was more powerful than any job I'd had before. That was the impetus."

Additionally, Groff opines of internet rumors about his romance with fellow film and stage star Zachary Quinto, "I heard from friends of friends or whatever that like, 'This picture was online' or 'I saw you and Zach walking down the street.' So I'd know that things like that existed, but I dont ever look at it."
