British actor Ben Whishaw says that he
found it difficult to come out with dignity.
The 34-year-old Whishaw is best known
for playing Q in the James Bond film Skyfall and Freddie in
the BBC period drama The Hour.
Last year, Whishaw announced that he's
in a civil partnership with Mark Bradshaw, an Australian composer.
“It was never a secret, everyone
around me in my life knew,” Whishaw
said in an interview with Marie Claire. “It's just very
hard to know how to say it, in a way, with some sort of dignity and
to remain private.”
“It was something that happened at
that time and now I'm very happy it's just a fact and I can get on
with my life,” he added.
Whishaw will be the voice of Paddington
Bear in the film Paddington, which opens later this month in
the United Kingdom.
