[HuffPost] The famously outspoken designer and movie director, 55, got real candid about sex, death and parenting in the December issue of GQ magazine. In one of the interview’s more jaw-dropping moments, Ford explained why he feels all men should be penetrated ― and yes, he meant in the physical sense.
“I think it would help them understand women,” he told GQ’s Taffy Brodesser-Akner. “It’s such a vulnerable position to be in, and it’s such a passive position to be in. And there’s such an invasion, in a way, that even if it’s consensual, it’s just very personal.”
Ford then noted, “I think there’s a psyche that happens because of it that makes you understand and appreciate what women go through their whole life, because it’s not just sexual, it’s a complete setup of the way the world works, that one sex has the ability to literally—and is expected to and is wanted to—but also there’s an invasion. And I think that that’s something most men do not understand at all.”
As it turns out, the “Nocturnal Animals” director was doubling down on remarks he’d made in a 2004 interview with GQ, when he proclaimed, “Every man should be f*cked at some point in his life,” and, some say, appeared to proposition writer Michael Hainey, who is straight.
