Jack Dylan Grazer chose to come out during a recent chat with his fans on Instagram and Twitter. When asked if he was homosexual, the 17-year-old actor replied that he was bisexual, citing a famous phrase from his latest film, “Luca”, and admitting that from now on he would like to be identified with the pronoun “They”. . “I’m bi,” says Grazer in the question-and-answer with the fans, which he broadcast video on social media, before exclaiming “Silenzio Bruno!”, the most famous joke said by Alberto, the character he voices in the Pixar animated film, and which – by his own admission – has now become his mantra.
Protagonist of Luca
After the confession regarding his own sexuality, some users noticed that Grazer also changed the pronouns of his Instagram bio to include ‘him / they’. Returning to «Luca», as soon as the film was distributed by Disney +, many people expressed the belief that the protagonists of the story – that is, Alberto and Luca – were homosexuals, although the director Enrico Casarosa had previously explained to Yahoo! Entertainment that the film was about “a platonic friendship.” Concept reiterated by Grazer himself in a subsequent interview with CinemaBlend: when he was asked if “Luca” was an animated transposition of “Call me by your name”, the actor replied that “Alberto and Luca are simply friends”, except to add that “it would be nice if we got back together and fell in love”, thus suggesting a potential sequel to the film.
