Rami Malek insists ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ doesn’t “shy away’ from Freddie Mercury’s sexuality or battle with AIDS.

The 37-year-old actor portrays the late Queen frontman in the upcoming biopic – which chronicles their rise to fame, culminating with their 1985 performance at ‘Live Aid’ – and though it was criticised because of a teaser trailer which seemingly glossed over the subjects, the ‘Mr. Robot’ star doesn’t think the negative comments were justified.

He said: “It’s a shame that people are making remarks after a minute teaser where you just wanna see the music. It’s difficult. First, let me say that I don’t think the film shies away from his sexuality or his all-consuming disease, which is obviously AIDS.I don’t know how you could avoid any of that, or if anyone would ever want to. It’s a bit absurd that anyone’s judging this from a minute trailer.”

And Rami believed it was important to approach Freddie’s battle with the disease and his death in 1991 in a “delicate matter” and get the tone just right.

“The film needed to approach it in a delicate manner. “You can’t shy away from it. It was an important moment to have in the film, one that ultimately is very sad but also empowering in a way. It shows you just how resilient human beings can be and how much we rely on the strength of our friends and family to get us through tough times.”

    I find it funny how these "critics" think they know the movie when they haven't seen it yet. In a recent interview I saw with Rami and Gwilym Lee (Brian May), they talk about the scene where Freddie tells the band he has AIDS and how emotional it was. So I have no doubt they are going to address the AIDS diagnosis. I actually liked the teaser and it made me very excited for the movie.

    I totally agree. How can anyone assume what the movie does or doesn’t do or say from a trailer? And it’s a movie so not every little thing is going to be shown and things that may be talked about may be in different periods cuz it’s a movie. It’s not a documentary. All in all this movie is suppose to entertain and tell a story the way Brian May and Roger Taylor contributed. They where definitely involved. Especially since Freddie Mercury isn’t with us and John Deacon is no longer playing music. The bottom line is haters are gonna hate and you can’t please everyone. And if that’s the attitude anyone has towards the movie than don’t see it. I’m not gonna miss it! I love Queen. I love their music and I am crazy about Rami Malek. Take my $ cuz I’m already in the theater. In my seat with my popcorn. Ready Freddie!

    If a single person criticizes movie based only the preview then that person is mentally ill. Rami has said it has all of that, so let's BELIEVE IT. The man PLAYED IT. So, calm down and be normal. AND WATCH THE MOVIE BEFORE YOU GO OUT OF YOUR MINDS!
