Ian Roberts: Always 'the thug'

The Australian rugby player-turned-actor tells the Advocate in its new issue that his imposing size -- he's 6-foot-5! -- makes it hard to get acting gigs. "I’ve always been ‘the thug,'" he says of a career that's included Aussie TV and roles in Superman Returns and Little Fish, alongside Cate Blanchett. “I don’t mind doing that sort of role either, as long as I work."

Fucking Availability Index: Lowish. The story notes his "sparsely furnished" West Hollywood apartment is full of photos of his boyfriend, Daniel, who lives in Sydney. Of course, that is a long way from Southern California...
