Yusaf Mack, the Philadelphia boxer whose sexuality became a national headline after appearing alongside two men in Holiday Hump’n tells HipHollywood in an exclusive interview that he’s been into men since he was a teenager and is looking forward to dating someone with that XY chromosome.
Mack, who has ten children with six women, tells HipHollywood in an exclusive interview that he was fearful of being treated differently causing him to hide his homosexual desires from the world. “It was like that man in me that I didn’t want anybody to know. I’m over it now though. I’m living my life and I’m happy,” the athlete reveals us in a lengthy sit-down interview.
Holiday Hump’n, a gay porn starring the boxer, forced him to confront his sexuality, an effort he fumbled initially. Mack first stated he was drugged before appearing in the XXX flick, then admitted that tale was a lie, he was actually bisexual. In the days following the bisexual revelation, Mack upped the ante, coming out completely as a homosexual man.
The entire episode strained the former IBF champion’s family ties, particularly with his daughter. “[She] said, ‘Kill yourself. You’re an embarrassment to our family. Then she apologized and we cried. I didn’t want to hurt nobody. I didn’t want my kids to look at me different.” One person who has been supportive through the entire ordeal is Mack’s now former fiancée. “She was like, ‘You gonna be you and I’m gonna love you regardless,'” he recounted.
Now that he’s living openly with his sexuality, the boxer says he’s looking forward to exploring his options by dating a member of the transgender community.
Watch: Julia Roberts And Owen Wilson Give Advice To Their 10-Year-Old Selves
To say Wonder is a must see movie is an understatement! Not only will the film touch you and inspire you to be a better person, it will also entertain you from start to finish.
But don’t take our word for it. HipHollywood sat down with the film’s stars Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson who shared their excitement to bring this heartwarming story to life and how they channeled their real-life parenting skills into the role.
“I think we felt a responsibility to be authentically parents and authentically parents to these two kids, said the 50 year old mother of three. “And I think that’s why you really believe these four people are family and are really having this experience together.”
In the film based on the NY times best seller, Roberts and Wilson play the parents of a teenage daughter (Izabela Vidovic) and 10-year-old boy (Jacob Tremblay) with facial differences entering mainstream elementary school for the first time.
When asked if they had any advice for their ten year old selves, Roberts said: “I have a ten year old son and I tell him to run.”
Meanwhile Wilson says he remembers 5th grade vividly, and enjoyed having his brother Andrew Wilson at the same school to protect him. “It helped so much having an older brother who was already at the school, so that would be the advice I’d give, have a cool older brother.”
Wonder hits theaters November 17, just one day before Wilson’s 49th birthday.
