However, in a new interview for HollywoodLife, he admitted that in the past he was afraid of losing his many female fans, as his role in Mean Girls made him a major heartthrob in the industry.
“I mean, for decades everyone tells you you’re going to lose all your teenage girl fansmeisje [if you come out] they are all going to hate you. And if you lose them, no one will watch your movies, so no one will cast you. And that’s the hard truth of what you’re hearing,” Jonathan revealed.
It turns out the opposite has happened!

“The girls I have who are fans of Mean Girls fell even more in love with me as a person simply because they saw the real me. And when you see the real person, their true authentic selves, it’s hard not to love them,” the actor told the same news channel.
June is Pride Month and now that he’s engaged, the star confessed that it all feels different.
After all, he is allowed to live and love openly with his other half.
In addition to designing the amazing engagement/wedding ring for gay couples, the happy couple also runs their own LGBTQ+ travel company, aptly named OUTbound Travel.
At the moment, the two are enjoying life as an engaged couple and dreaming of their perfect wedding, the date of which has yet to be determined.
The ring is called ‘Our Ring by Jaymes and Jonathan’ and can only be found on KAY.com.
