In a 2004 interview with Playboy magazine, he said, "I don't like gay people around me, because I'm not comfortable with what their thoughts are. I'm not prejudiced. I just don't go with gay people and kick it—we don't have that much in common. I'd rather hang out with a straight dude. But women who like women, that's cool."
