NEW YORK (AP) – Joel Grey has publicly announced at age 82 that he is gay.
The Oscar- and Tony-winning actor tells People magazine, “I don’t like labels, but if you have to put a label on it, I’m a gay man.”
Grey was married to actress Jo Wilder for 24 years and they have two children together: actress Jennifer Grey and son James, a chef. He says, “It took time to embrace that other part of who I always was.”
Grey’s show-stopping performance as the devilish master of ceremonies in “Cabaret” won him an Academy Award and a Tony.
