Jane Lynch is not “immune” to male charm as she has a crush on Russell Brand.
The Glee actress is a lesbian and married clinical psychologist Lara Embry in 2010. Although Jane is happily settled with Lara, she admits she still finds some men attractive. When asked who she would like to “dabble with”, Jane revealed she is intrigued by outspoken British comic Russell.
“Let’s get one thing out there right away: I have crushes on guys all the time. I’m gay but I’m not immune to the male charm,” she told the latest issue of UK magazine Glamour. “Russell Brand would be fun. I kissed him full on the lips on Jay Leno’s show… of course he’s out of his mind, but I think that might make things quite fun.
“Then there’s Hugh Grant… he was beautiful, but he’s aged, hasn’t he?”
Jane was then asked if she finds traditionally beautiful women like Angelina Jolie attractive. The 52-year-old explained that personality and a sense of humour are more important than looks when it comes to sexiness.
“No they don’t [do anything for me]. But someone like Helen Mirren does: she’s a vixen and she’s got a potty mouth and she’d be crazy,” she laughed.
Jane also discussed the misconception that lesbians are simply best friends who have sex.
The star believes that a relationship can only work if you keep the spark alive.
“There’s this thing they call ‘lesbian bed death’, where two women become best friends and just snuggle. I am sure it happens in straight relationships too,” she added.
Jane plays ruthless cheerleading coach Sue Sylvester in Glee, and the character is renowned for her caustic remarks.
The actress loves the role and hopes the show will continue for years to come.
“End? I don’t think it will ever end,” she replied when asked if there is a natural end planned for Glee. “Seriously though, I still have two years left on my contract and I hope they’ll use them. And I think that as long as the show stays true to the premise that you should be celebrated for who you are and that we have a plentiful supply of talent, it can go on forever.”
