A still from Beauty and The Beast.
Los Angeles: Bill Condon, director of Beauty and the Beast, says too much has been made over the film's "exclusively gay moment".
The director first announced Josh Gad's LeFou would come out of the closet, in a recent issue of Attitude magazine, giving Disney its first openly gay character. At the time, he referred to it as "an exclusively gay moment", but has since downplayed his past remarks during an interview with ScreenCrush, reports ew.com.
"Oh God. Can I just tell you? It's all been overblown. Because it's just this, it's part of just what we had fun with," he said.
"You saw the movie, yeah? You know what I mean. I feel like the kind of thing has been, I wish it were -- I love the way it plays pure when people don't know and it comes as a nice surprise."
Wishing "to not make a big deal of it", he asked, "Why is it a big deal?"
