BBC Radio 4’s “Desert Island Discs” on Sunday. “I don’t think there’s a different standard, it’s more this thing about – if you are something then now you’re allowed to joke about it.

But if you’re not [you can’t]. That’s kind of what’s currently happening. So it’s not really gendered.”Wilson continued: “I think that’s hard.

It’s going into this territory of like saying, ‘Well, only straight actors can play straight roles and gay actors can play gay roles’, which I think is total nonsense.”The actress, who came out in June 2022, added: “I think you should be able to play any role that you want.

But I always think, in comedy, your job is to always flirt with that line of what’s acceptable.”“Sometimes you do step over it, but at the end of the day, you are trying to entertain people,” Wilson said. “If people are just always being safe and protective, you’re not going to get good comedy from that.”Other gay actors have similarly weighed in on the topic of acting jobs being determined by sexuality.
