39 Times Actors Refused To Kiss Their Costar On Camera
Luke Grimes refused to kiss Nelsan Ellis on True Blood
Can you imagine giving up thousands of dollars just because you didn’t want to do a same-sex kissing scene? Personally, I can’t. But that’s the story of Luke Grimes who quit True Blood when he found out his character was slated to get into a relationship with that of Nelsan Ellis. Luke Grimes claimed it was because he had conflicting movie schedules (oh, really??).
Nelsan himself spoke about the rumors to Vulture, saying, “We’re all sitting there going, ‘You quit your job because … really?’ I’m just… I’m over him. You quit your job because you don’t want to play a gay part? As if it’s … You know what? I’m going to stop talking.”
