Maulik Pancholy's sexuality wasn't a secret, but he did take the extra step of going on the record about it in November 2013 -- just in case someone out there wasn't clear.On a November 2013 episode, personal trainer Harper, 48, talked about his sexuality for the first time on the reality weight loss competition in an effort to show the contestant that he doesn't have to be ashamed. The actor, who memorably portrayed the obsessive and loyal assistant Jonathan on "30 Rock," told Out magazine that he's been in a relationship for nine years.Blanchett and Stewart joined fellow Cannes jury members, Ava Du Vernay, Khadja Nin, and Léa Seydoux, in the South of France for the start of this year's festival earlier this week.

And being gay doesn't mean that you are less than anybody else.
