Jane Lynch has revealed she used to worry about what she would do if she got famous and people discovered she was gay.

The Glee actress, who recently tied the knot with long-time partner Lara Embry, spoke about being an openly gay celeb at this year's Outfest in Los Angeles.

She said: "It's funny, when I was younger I used to lie in bed and think, 'What will I do if I ever get famous and they find out I'm gay?' I would really angst about that."



The actress added: "It just happened so naturally and I didn't hide anything."

Despite being honoured with this year's Outfest Achievement Award, Jane refuses to accept she can take much of the credit for setting an example to Hollywood.

"It's the people that came before me that have really blazed a trail for me. Ellen DeGeneres, Rosie O'Donnell, Melissa Etheridge, Kd Lang, those people that stood up when it wasn't popular and said, 'I'm gay - deal with it'," she said.

"I never let anything like my sexuality stop me from pursuing what I wanted to do and what I do has nothing to do with my orientation really."

She added: "I play straight people all the time, I think I'm an actor first before I'm a gay person."
