Luke Evans feels “vulnerable” when he sings.

The 43-year-old star admitted that recording his second studio album “A Song for You” was a completely different test than acting.

Luke, who has starred in films such as Beauty and the Beast and Fast and Furious 6, explained: “I don’t play myself in a film, I always play someone else’s story.

“When I sing, I don’t have to wear a mask. It’s a pretty raw, vulnerable place.”

Luke, who came out as gay at the age of 22, insists he doesn’t mind being too open and honest in his lyrics.

He told The Independent: “When it comes to writing, you are influenced by so many things. People can interpret what they want.”

Luke also admitted that he was inspired by Adele.

He shared, “There are songs written by her that have helped me understand my own feelings and process past relationships. A true artist just pours her heart out and she makes it louder as she digs deeper into the journey she’s been on. This is a brave act. “

Despite this, Luke insists that his personal life should remain a private matter.

The Hollywood star said: “I just don’t think it’s appropriate for anyone to talk to me about my personal life.

“They don’t do it with straight actors, so why would they with gay actors? It shouldn’t happen… I’m not talking about it because it’s nobody’s business!”

Luke also insists that his sexuality hasn’t had much of an impact on his career.

The actor, who was tipped to replace Daniel Craig as James Bond, said: “[My sexuality] had no influence on any of the roles I played, my list is so varied, so varied in such a brilliant way. I’ve played everything and nobody seems to have a problem with it.”
