Paris Hilton sparked a media uproar this week after an audio recording of the star proclaiming that gay men were "the horniest people in the world" and that most who use the popular social app Grindr "probably have AIDS" went viral.
"I am NOT discriminating against Matt Bomer because of his sexuality," Ellis tweeted. "'Fifty Shades of Grey' demands an actor that is genuinely into women. Get it?!?"
Interestingly, Ellis' stance on both Hilton's comments and Bomer's casting may come as a surprise to some fans, given that the author has frequently declined to label his own sexuality in interviews. "I definitely don't identify as gay," he told Metro Weekly in 2002. "So I can't commit an answer."
Still, earlier this year, Ellis told The Paris Review, via Out magazine: "I was fairly bisexual in college -- I had girlfriends, I had boyfriends."
