T.R. Knight Confirms He is Gay

by at .

Actor T.R. Knight, the terrific Grey's Anatomy star who has become a fan favorite as everyman George O'Malley, has announced he is gay.

T.R. KnightThe 33-year-old addressed rumors of his sexuality in a statement to People magazine Thursday, and while it's part of who he is, he hopes that isn't how people view him.

"I guess there have been a few questions about my sexuality, and I'd like to quiet any unnecessary rumors that may be out there," Knight said in his statement.

"While I prefer to keep my personal life private, I hope the fact that I'm gay isn't the most interesting part of me."

Before taking on the role of the bumbling, puppy-eyed surgical intern George on the ABC drama, T.R. (which stands for Theodore Raymond) made a name for himself as a stage actor. His TV credits include CSI: Crime Scene Investigation and Law & Order: Criminal Intent.

We're happy for T.R. in that the decision to come out is often a difficult one, and he clearly felt it was time. If we see or hear anything more, we will have it for you as soon as possible.

    I wish everyone would stop making a big deal out of sexuality. I do not see how it matters. TR is a very good actor... just keep doing what you do TR.

    when i found out you were gay i was a bit disappointed because (this is hard to say because like you i don't like to just yell my secrets out to the world- but anyway...) i had an oober crush on you... but that's not gonna work out (lol). anyway, not that its any of my buissiness but if the only reason your gay is because you dont think that girls like you... well my friend you are mistaken. but anyway i will always love ya "Georgie"! no matter if your gay or straight, cuz if you really like someone it doesnt even matter.
    lovin u always,

    I recently saw the interview with TR and Hellen in other website and honesty is the only substantial thin that I saw in the interview. For some one to come out that way and be public like TR takes a lot of cohones and real man have those....so I guess in other ways GOOD FOR YOU TR!!!!!!. And honestly for those that we watch the show is more for characters that really matters like all the residents. like George, Christina, Meredith and all the others, so if suddenly Preston get kidnap by aliens...not that many will miss him. SERIUSLY!

    I hate the rumor of you leaving the show due to all of this. Dont let peoples ignorance and bad taste run you off. You deserve to be there and I would hate to see you go - you bring alot to the show and I hope to see your character and Callie get together.
