Bebe Neuwirth's new interview about being Morticia Addams

Bebe Neuwirth and Nathan Lane are currently on Broadway starring in the critically panned - but - audience pleasing Addams Family musical. recently spoke with the actress and dancer about her role as Morticia Addams and recent allegations that she's a diva!

Out: What’s it like working with Nathan?

Bebe Neuwirth: He’s really funny! He’s really nice, and we get along really well. I joked to him that we should go to some restaurant where all those people [gossip columnists] go and get a booth and make out. Then they can start calling us Bethan!

Out: Earlier this year the Human Rights Campaign honored you with its Ally for Equality Award. What did that mean to you?

Bebe Neuwirth: It was a huge, huge honor. I got to learn a lot more about the HRC. I was so inspired. I was just filled with awe. My husband too. Both of our jaws just dropped at the work that they do and the people they drew. I don’t know how many politicians made sure that they were there. It just inspires me to do more.

Out: Was there ever a moment when you thought, I have a gay following?

Bebe Neuwirth: I guess it sort of crept up on me. It wasn’t anything that seemed...

Out: Were there ever Bebe Neuwirth drag queens running around?

Bebe Neuwirth: No. It didn’t seem unusual in any way. It was like, “Oh, right.” I think somebody pointed it out to me. Maybe when I did Out’s fifth anniversary cover when I was in Chicago. I was like, “Oh really? Great.”
