Joel Grey, who won the Academy Award for his performance in Cabaret 42 years ago, has come out publicly as a gay man.
'I don't like labels, but if you have to put a label on it, I'm a gay man,' Grey tells People Magazine.
'All the people close to me have known for years who I am,' he adds. '[Yet] it took time to embrace that other part of who I always was.'
Grey, 82, has the staunch support of his daughter, actress Jennifer Grey of Dirty Dancing fame.
