Lenny Kravitz on his 'Hunger Games' inspiration

While some fans of "The Hunger Games" have arrived at the conclusion that heroine Katniss Everdeen's stylist, Cinna, is gay, the guy who plays him on screen, Lenny Kravitz, tells Celebuzz in an interview that the theory never crossed his mind.

When Kravitz would tell kids that he's playing the masterful fashion designer in this week's anticipated release, they'd respond, "‘Oh you’re playing the gay guy,’" the actor recalls.

"That was an actual answer," Kravitz continues. "I’ve never brought that up yet. That’s how they perceived it. So I thought about it, and I read the book and I don’t see that he is or isn’t [gay]. He’s a designer, he’s a stylist, he has gold eyeliner - that doesn’t mean anything either way.”
