Actor Russell Crowe spoke with Entertainment Weekly regarding complaints that the bisexuality of mathematician John Forbes Nash Jr. was left out of the film A Beautiful Mind, in which Crowe portrays Nash. "It was relevant to his character," said Crowe, "but we didn't want to imply that there was any possibility that schizophrenia and homosexuality are related. That would be ridiculous." In a recent statement to The Washington Post, Nash and his wife, Alicia, denied that the mathematician ever had a homosexual relationship, although Sylvia Nasar's biography, the basis for the film, suggests that Nash had involvements with men at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and that he lost his security clearance after an arrest for indecent exposure.
