Ian McKellen has 'no doubt' Shakespeare was gay

London, Fri, 06 Jan 2012 ANI

London, Jan 6 (ANI): Sir Ian McKellen has made the bold announcement that there is 'no doubt' that William Shakespeare was gay, even though the bard was married with children.


The actor, who played Gandalf in 'Lord of the Rings', said that he came to this conclusion after studying the works of the famed playwright.


"I'd say Shakespeare slept with men," the Daily Mail quoted McKellen as telling a New York newspaper.


"The Merchant of Venice, centering on how the world treats gays as well as Jews, has a love triangle between an older man, younger man and a woman.


"And the complexity in his comedies with cross-dressing and disguises is immense. Shakespeare obviously enjoyed sex with men as well as women," he claimed.


It is widely accepted that Shakespeare married 26-year-old Anne Hathaway when he was 18.


Six months after the marriage his wife gave birth to a daughter, Susanna, who was baptised 26 May 1583.


His twins, son Hamnet and daughter Judith followed almost two years later and were baptised 2 February 1585. (ANI)
