‘Star Wars' actor gets honest about the topic of gender

In Star Wars, Billy Dee Williams played Lando Calrissian, but at the time, he faced a prevalent rumour about him that he was gay.

In a chat with Page Six, the veteran actor said, “I’ve been called a ‘Closet Queen,’ noting, “But, I don’t pay much attention to any of that.”

Addressing the issue in his memoir “What Have We Here?”, the Harlem native opened up about rubbing shoulders with the LGBTQIA+ community members — not to mention he attended secret gay parties in his lifetime.

“It all seemed very normal to me,” he penned. “I was around it all of my life, so I never really gave it much thought.”

Elsewhere in the interview, Billy Dee opened up about his venture into Star Wars.

“Especially when you do the conventions, and you’re doing Q & A’s, and you get some little 10-year-old kid who wants to kill you because you’ve betrayed Han Solo! So it becomes really, a kind of interesting adventure,” he shared.
