In an interview with in 2007, Wentworth denied that he is gay by saying that he would like a girlfriend and a family. When the Interviewer asked, “There are rumors that you prefer men.” His answer was along the lines of,

"I'm not gay, but that rumor can't be killed. I'd like to have a girlfriend and a family. But I haven't met the right one yet. Until then I'm focusing on my job. I had to wait so long for this chance I savor every second on set even if it means 14 hours of shooting a day."

Despite all his denial, as reported by in 2013, he once opened up himself as a gay in a letter to  Maria Averbakh, director of the St. Petersburg International Film Festival, also when he was invited to said festival but declined the invitation considering Russia's strict anti-gay laws. Most notably refusing while saying

" As a gay man, I must decline."

Luke Macfarlane on coming out as gay

In an interview with in 2008, Luke talked about his experience in coming out as gay and how it influenced his career, life as well as the various factors that affected his action.

When questioned with how he thought his decision to come out of the closet would affect him personally he replied with

I don’t know what will happen professionally … but I guess I can’t really be concerned about what will happen, because it’s my truth

When asked with how the media handled his coming out as well as its effect on his career, he had quite a lot to say

I feel strongly that there is a distinction between revealing my sexual preference and my most private thoughts. My sexual preference is one irrefutable aspect of me, like the color of my skin. I’ve never been interested in revealing intimate details about my life. The concern with engaging with the media has to do with trying to make sure they will understand this difference.

He also went on to talk about how his then-role of Scotty(who is homosexual as well) in the TV show 'Brothers and Sisters' definitely influenced him and furthermore gave him the strength to accept who he was as he was essentially projecting himself on Scotty everytime he was acting as him.
