    Talking about his role in the movie, he also remembered the days he kept himself hidden. He said,

    “This story, a story about AIDS and stripping away politics, stipping away activism, stripping away the medical drama of it, what you’re left with is something so personal about family and connecting with family and keeing secrets with family. It just overwhelmed me.”

    Apart from this, Smith hasn’t opened up about “possible boyfriends” just yet.
