Shawn Mendes Confesses He Almost Auditioned for the Lead Role in ‘Love, Simon’
Self confessed straight guy Shawn Mendes admitted he almost auditioned for titular ‘Love, Simon’ role.
While promoting the release of his newest single, “In My Blood,” on the Elvis Duran and the Morning Show Thursday (March 22), the singer shared of how he decided to treat himself to a screening of the much talk about gay movie ‘Love, Simon’ just hours before the song’s big premiere.
He says it was an “incredible movie”, which then prompted the host to quiz him on the rumors that indicated he nearly auditioned for the role in the gay teen romance flick himself.
“Oh yeah, I was,” Mendes confirmed before explaining the reason why he didn’t accept the role. “Unfortunately, timing didn’t work out. It would have been amazing!”
