Robbie Williams has joked he loves musical theatre so much, he feels “49 per cent homosexual”.
The 39-year-old singer wants to branch out into musical theatre and admits he identifies with gay men because of his flair for all things dramatic.
He told the Daily Star newspaper: “I would really like to have a crack at it. I love musical theatre and a lot of the other things that are often associated with gays.
“I am 49 per cent homosexual and sometimes as far as 50 per cent. However, that would imply that I enjoy having a particular sort of fun, which I don’t.”
The Take That star – who has 14-month-old daughter Theodora, known as ‘Teddy’, with his wife Ayda Field – is keen to take on a starring role in a stage production about his life, and would love some big Hollywood names to get involved.
Robbie joked: “I don’t know who they could get to play me in the musical, so it would have to be me. If anyone has ideas I am up for writing new songs. But when I say anyone, I actually mean directors of massive films.”
The ‘Candy’ hitmaker will be getting a makeover before he takes to the stage, however, since he is fed up with his “turdy” looking grey dye job.
He quipped: “My wife said it would look good on me but now it’s gone from being grey, striking, interesting and windswept to a little bit turdy.”
