In the just-released comedy The Interview Eminem satirically reveals that he's gay.

The Interview, which stars James Franco as a television host and Seth Rogen as a producer who are instructed to assassinate North Korean leader Kim Jong-un had a limited Christmas Day release after a majority of theater chains canceled screenings over fears of retaliation from North Korea. Sony Pictures Entertainment made the film available for rental online on Wednesday.

In one scene, host Dave Skylark (played by Franco) is interviewing the rapper when Eminem explains, “When I say things about gay people, or people think my lyrics are homophobic, it's because I'm gay.”

“I'm just a little confused here, because gay can mean a lot of things,” Skylark says.

“I'm a homosexual,” Eminem responds.

“I'm more shocked that people haven't figured it out yet. I mean, it's kind of like I've been playing gay peek-a-boo,” he adds.

Eminem has previously argued that his lyrics are not anti-gay. In 2010, he endorsed allowing gay couples to marry.

Other celebrities who appear in The Interview as themselves include Rob Lowe, Bill Maher, Nicki Minaj, Emma Stone, Zac Efron, Guy Fieri and Joseph Gordon-Levitt.
