“Downton Abbey” Star Rob James-Collier Totally Fine With Kissing Dudes

Greece censors Downton Abbey gay kiss.

The very hot and talented Rob James-Collier, who plays the very hot and gay Thomas on Downton Abbey, recently chatted with British talk show host Jonathan Ross about what it is like to have to kiss other dudes when you’re a straight man. Turns out, not such a big thing.


In fact, Mr. James-Collier told JR that kissing a dude on TV is way better than kissing a lady on TV, saying:

I found it easier. The way I was thinking was that if you kiss a girl you worry about: One, how big her boyfriend is; Two, is he in the building watching and is he going to kick the shit out of you?; And three, what is my missus going to think of it?

So we went to the BFI for a big unveiling on the cinema screen, and the missus knew [the kiss] was coming, and we were all sitting watching it and I thought “Nice one, she can’t accuse me of anything,” and the missus turned to me and said, “You’ve never kissed me like that.”

Rob James-Collier is such a pro.

Downton Abbey returns here in the states for season four early next year.
