Actor Nick Frost talked about being a gay icon with Conan O'Brien.
The 41-year-old Frost appeared on TBS' Conan to promote the
film The World's End, which opens in the United States next
O'Brien asked him about his gay following.
“Well, it's the bears, essentially,” Frost explained.
“The bears?” O'Brien asked.
“Big guys who like big, harry guys. It's a niche market. But I
think if I can't attract the 25-35 year old women, I'll take the 40
plus giant, harry men,” Frost said.
Frost said he learned about his following through social media.
“There's a lot of tweets from big, harry guys, saying, 'Oh my
god, you're so hot,” he said with heavy valley girl twang.
“I'd love to pose on the cover of All-American Bear. I
think that would be great,” he added. “And I even got like a
little outfit that I think I'd wear. … It's essentially white
chaps, a kind of white cowboy vest and a tiny little cowboy hat. And
I think I'd have two little revolvers.” (The video is embedded on
