'Mean Girls' Actor Comes Out in Letter to Damian
Posted Tuesday, April 22nd 2014 @ 10pm
Daniel Franzese, who played openly gay Damian in "Mean Girls" - which came out 10 years ago this month - asked IndieWire.com to share this coming out letter he wrote to his character in the film. It includes some of our favorite Damian moments...and is all kinds of awesome.
"When I was cast in the role of “Damian” in ‘Mean Girls,’ I was TERRIFIED to play this part. But this was a natural and true representation of a gay teenager - a character we laughed with instead of at. (You can thank Tina Fey and Mark Waters for that. I can only take partial credit.)"

Here's some of Damian's best lines! You go, Glen Coco!
