During a new interview with HollywoodLife, however, he admitted that in the past, he’s been afraid of losing many of his fans since his role in Mean Girls made him a major heartthrob in the industry.
I mean, for decades, everyone has told you that you’re going to lose all your teenage fans معجب [if you come out] They will all hate you. And if you lose it, no one will watch your movies and therefore no one will throw you. Jonathan revealed that this is the harsh truth of what you hear.
It turns out that the opposite happened!

“My girls who are fans of Mean Girls fell in love with me more as a person, just because they saw the real me. When you see the real person, his true authentic self, it’s hard not to love him,” the actor told the same news outlet.

After all, he can live and honestly love with his other half.
Aside from designing an amazing engagement/wedding ring for gay couples, the happy couple also runs their own LGBTQ+ travel company, called OUTbound Travel.
