Exclusive: Craig Ferguson Addresses His “Gay” Character In How To Train Your Dragon 2



Dreamworks How To Train Your Dragon 2 is full of comedy, action and thrills … But one thing that might catch movie goers off guard is the film’s reference to homosexuality.

In the fantasy flick, Gobber, the voice of late night host, Craig Ferguson, made a direct comment about his sexuality. “This is why I never married. This and one other reason,” the animated character says. So, during an interview with Ferguson to talk about the sequel, HipHollywood got straight to the point and asked the star about his character’s sexuality.

“I think that the implication would be that he is [gay]. I think, maybe more will be revealed later on,” Craig responded.

Co-star, Gerard Butler chimed in, “When I heard that in the movie I actually thought he was just missing a very vital body part which never gave him the confidence [to get married]. In Viking times, probably nobody wanted to marry if you don’t have your thingamagig.”

According to the director, Dean DeBlois, Gobber is indeed a gay man and while watching the film, Dean says it’ll take audiences a moment to realize, like, ‘Did he just say what I think he said?’”

DeBlois added, “Because I’m a gay man, and I don’t draw attention to myself for that reason. It’s just a fact of who I am, and the way the world is, and it’s nice to treat it as just a passing notion that isn’t something that people have to get so up in arms about.”

How To Train Your Dragon 2 is in theaters now.

    What? Who gives a flying fuck if the character is homosexual. It’s pretty important for kids to learn that not everyone likes the same things and it’s completely fine and natural to be gay.
    And if you think otherwise, you are an idiot.

      Maggot is a apropos. Anyways, we all have to tolerate your stupid gay-mafia trash. but we dont have to accept it or like it. You scum confuse tolerate with accept. Your HIV hepatitis culture and predation of children is sickening. You are NAMBLA scum and normal people everywhere will have to fight to keep your kids away from predators like you.

    I will not take my children to see a movie where animated characters are gay. Let’s be honest, this movie has bombed because no parent in his right mind would support this movie.

    Wow, another attempt to bring SEXUAL PERVERSION to the children. The Hollyweird Pedophiles never miss a beat in their recruitment drive, do they?

    Jesus effing Christ

    It is a fucking defect to be gay, nothing “normal” about it. Stop jamming it down everyone’s throats everywhere. This is sick.
