David Walliams Opens Up About His Sexual Preferences

David Walliams has opened up about his sexuality in a frank and honest interview.

Speaking to Attitude Magazine, he said that he wouldn't rule out finding love with a man. He explained: "I wouldn't totally rule it out.

"I had gay experiences growing up, which I enjoyed. I was a teen and in a lot of all-male environments. I am naturally very camp.

"When I was at school I used to play Wonder Woman in the playground."


Walliams said: "I'm attracted to women. Sometimes I think it would be simpler if I wasn't because people think I'm gay and I'm camp. It would just be quite easy but I do find women really, really attractive."

Walliams has never been shy about his personality, which he describes as 'naturally camp'.


However, in the past he's only been linked to women.

In an interview with the Radio Times in 2013, he did allude to the fact that he was pansexual. He said: "I think it's all about falling in love with the person and that is overlooked, really. I hate it when people 'confess' or 'reveal' their sexuality and also things can change for people over the years.

"So it is about the person but I also think it goes beyond that. You don't just fall in love with someone's body, do you? You fall in love with someone's soul and heart and brain."


He told CNBC last year: "People assume certain things if people are effeminate. But I didn't mind too much. I mean, I sort of played up to it I suppose to some extent playing these camp characters on screen.

"And then I was I linked to some glamorous women so there was a kind of, 'Oh hang on, how is this man who wears a dress, you know, being seen out with these glamorous women' and so it confused people."

Fair play to him.
