Dylan McDermott doesn't care knows whether his admirers are women or men -- he's just happy to provide the eye candy!
The American Horror Story hunk tells The Advocate he has no problems whatsoever with gay men appreciating -- or even hitting on -- him. McDermott, 50, opens up to the gay and lesbian news magazine about his track record with gay fans and his new role, which requires him to walk around naked on every episode.
"Honestly, I'm cool with everyone, and people pick up on that," replied McDermott when asked if gay men flirt with him. "I'd say, 'I'm not gay, but it's all good.' It's kind of like going to Paris when you don't know the language; some Americans get into trouble over there, but I'm just like, 'Sorry, I don't speak French.'"
When McDermott realized his new show -- which has turned into the cult hit of the fall season -- involved multiple nude scenes, he went on a diet and fitness regime to sculpt those abs into camera-ready condition.
"I'm no fool, so I hit the gym and watched what I ate," he told the magazine. "Actually, when I first got the role, production called me and asked, 'Who's your body double?' I said, 'Oh, hell no. It's going to be all me, baby.'"
Obviously his exercise has paid off, because despite the 30-year age difference, McDermott could give even six-pack-sporting Taylor Lautner a run for his money!
