While on the Wendy Williams Show on Wednesday, the pop-singing brother was asked by the show host, why sans ring and if he regretted discussing his sexuality in public?
The 22 year-old responded, "I don't regret it, I think it was an important part of my childhood and it was that. As I grew up, I sort of figured out what was important to me and my own belief system. We all grow up and we all live life and find out what’s important to us, that’s what happened. I went on that journey myself and I’m now comfortable with who I am and what I believe in and I’m an adult."
And on his current girlfriend, former Miss Universe Olivia Culpo. "We’re enjoying the ride together and its’s been a pretty insane year and half. Lots of changes in both of our lives and she’s been a teammate through all of it."
Amy Adams tells Vogue that when she turned 40 last August she had a meltdown and even more, she says that she didn't feel like a "grown-up."
"I was like, ‘I’m 40 and I still care what people think of me,’” she says. “I still don’t do laundry so I’m always out of things; I’m just not a grown-up at all, and I had this expectation that I would be by this age.” She explains, “It wasn’t, ‘Oh, I’m getting old and I’m going to lose something vibrant about myself.’ It was more that I was just so disappointed with myself. It’s just awful. Any chance for self-loathing!”
She says that she often puts stress on herself and tried to work through it, “Every time I get stressed out or anxious, I say to myself, ‘Just live and love. Feel love.’” She continues “I think that’s what I took away from my turning-40 meltdown. I have been operating out of fear, and I just don’t want to do it anymore.”
She has been nominated for five Oscars and says that when it comes to acting shes a total perfectionist - it took her awhile to be noticed when she first started acting. “There was a TV show called ‘Grosse Pointe’ that I was fired from,” she remembers, adding, “I probably sucked. I never got a straight answer. It was my second year in L.A., and I got hired for two pilots and got fired from both of them. The producer called me and said, ‘It’s just not working.’ And I was like, ‘I know. I could tell.’” The actress recalls it was a “painful” time in her life and she was considering quitting. She explains, “My lawyer called me after I was fired from the two shows and said, ‘Just to even get two shows in a pilot season is amazing. So you’re doing something right.’ I thank him all the time for that call.”
