Lee Daniels has talked about his sexuality in the past and today he's opening up about his painful childhood.

In a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, The Butler director said he wanted to kill himself as a kid because of the bullying he went through for being gay.

"You know, the universe has been kind to me," said Daniels. "I had a rough childhood growing up—very rough. Oftentimes I wanted to kill myself as a kid. You know, I was bullied because I was gay and then I was bullied because I was Black going to an all-white school later on. Thank God I didn't kill myself, huh? I think that the universe took care and God took care of me. I am the product of that environment."
