Perez Hilton’s Daily Update: Live Action ‘Beauty And The Beast’ Will Feature A Gay Character

The live-action ‘Beauty and the Beast’ is switching it up!!

The film’s director Bill Condon revealed one of the characters is gay.

Sooo who is it? Gaston’s sidekick, LeFou, played by Josh Gad.

Bill Condon explained why it makes perfect sense for the character, “LeFou is somebody who on one day wants to be Gaston and on another day wants to kiss Gaston. He’s confused about what he wants. It’s somebody who’s just realizing that he has these feelings. And Josh makes something really subtle and delicious out of it. And that’s what has its payoff at the end, which I don’t want to give away. But it is a nice, exclusively gay moment in a Disney movie.”

‘Beauty and the Beast’ hits theaters March 17.
