Nick Jonas

Nick Jonas is no longer that squeaky-clean tween he was during the heyday of the Jonas Brothers.

No, he hasn't done anything wrong, but...

He admits getting naked on the Broadway stage doesn't exactly scare him.


In the latest issue of gay magazine The Advocate, Jonas is asked if he'd be up for repeating Daniel Radcliffe's full-frontal performance in the play Equus. (Jonas is getting ready to star on Broadway in How To Succeed in Business Without Really Trying in the part originally played in this revival by the Harry Potter star.)

"I don't know that it's something I would've done in the end, but I definitely would've considered it," he tells the mag. "You have to be open to everything."

Being that this is Jonas' first interview with the gay press, he's also pressed on how growing up in an evangelical Christian home shaped his opinions about the Jo Bros' gay fans and same-sex marriage.

"My thoughts on gay marriage are that everyone has the right to love and be loved, and that's the position I take," he tells writer Brandon Voss. "My upbringing was faith-based, but we believed you should love all others as you want to be loved, because everyone should be treated equally."

"We love our gay fans," he said. "Obviously, doing musical theater, I've had a lot of gay friends over the years. Les Misérables in London in 2010 was my first reentry back into theater, and my gay castmates in particular were really helpful to me during that transition. I've kept in touch with all of them, and it's great when I can go back and see them, get some food together, talk, and have a good laugh."

Rock on, Nick Jonas!
