Quote from Cameron in Fifteen Percent

Mitchell: [aside to camera] I came out of the closet in my mid-20s. I had to actually come out to my dad three times before he finally acknowledged it. I'm not sure if maybe he was hoping he heard it wrong, like I had said, "Dad, I'm gray."
Cameron: And my parents, they always just knew. My mother says labor with me took 36 hours because I came out of the womb like this, [jazz hands] "Hello!"
