The guy who played the well-hung high school nerd R.J. Berger,
23-year-old Paul Iacono, on MTV’s hit show “Hard Times of R.J. Berger” just revealed he’s gay … but he’s still attracted to women. More details below…………..
Paul came out publicly to “The Village Voice” saying, “I think it’s the right time to say something.”
Iacono explains, “I grew up in a really old-school Italian traditional family in New Jersey. I tried coming out a couple of times as a kid, from 13-14 on, and was always squashed on.”
He adds, “I was just coming to terms with the fact that I was bisexual, which culturally I do identify with as a gay man — I am attracted to girls, I’m just attracted to guys much more.”
“It was not until I was 18 that I came out with my mom and 20 with my dad. I was older and able to address it from a different perspective.”
Paul also says part of the reason he came out publicly was to be a role model to kids so they “won’t have to grow up and be afraid of their sexuality.”
