Stand-up comedian, writer and actor
Norm Macdonald said this week that he cannot acknowledge that he's
gay because he's deeply closeted.
Macdonald appeared on Larry King Now
to promote his memoir Based on a True Story: A Memoir.
The 57-year-old Macdonald also stars in
the upcoming Netflix comedy series #Girlboss, which is slated
for release next year.
When asked by host Larry King to name
something people don't know about him, Macdonald answered: “I'm [a]
deeply closeted gay guy.”
“No kidding,” a stunned King
responded. “That means you're gay.”
“I wouldn't say that. Why would I
say that? I'm deeply closeted,” Macdonald
“But doesn't that mean you're gay?”
“Hey, hey, hey easy buddy!”
Macdonald said with a smile.
