Cockney actor Danny Dyer successfully shot himself in the foot when he was interviewed about his large gay following in a free newspaper. His comments about being a cover star of a gay magazine were "I'm not queer. I've got nothing against queers - they're sweet as a nut - but it was a bit of a mad statement for me to make ..." "... to be on the cover of a queer magazine with my top off ....". Danny is promoting the film "Severance" if any queers are interested . "I still get grief for it".
