Werner Herzog:

I am unable to distinguish a gay man from a straight man unless he shows up in drag and make-up. For me, a man is a man. Not long ago I was with film director John Waters – whom I have known for 40 years – on stage at an event. A single, blinding spotlight shone down on him, and 1,600 eyes stared out from the darkness. I stepped aside and from arm’s length looked at John with an intensified focus. I turned to my wife and whispered, “Could it be that John is gay?” Such a bold filmmaker, a man very dear to my heart. I admire his audacity, but I was truly oblivious to the fact that he is gay. I always just took him for John Waters.
