Moreover, she has received rave reviews in the media for the performance.
"I didn't [suspect he was gay when we were dating], but I was a little naive because I was 17. I didn't really have a lot of experience in relationships, but my mom had actually suspected and had said something to me after we broke up. She asked me if I thought it was a possibility, and at first my reaction was like 'No!' And then, the more I thought about it, I was like 'Hm, maybe.' After we broke up, I started thinking about it and I started hearing things from people we were friends with. I was like 'OK, I wish he had felt more comfortable at that time to be honest with me then,' but I respect his decision and the way he handled everything. He was nothing but a great boyfriend and an incredible gentleman."
