"At the restaurant, Lane talked about his friendship with Terrence McNally, whose "Lisbon Traviata," "Lips Together, Teeth Apart" and "Love! Valour! Compassion!" Lane starred in. It was the film version of the latter that caused a rift between the two. Lane had just wrapped "The Birdcage," and New Line Cinema, eager to finance the film, announced his involvement before any contracts had been signed. Soon after, with the film still not in place, Lane took a role in a television special, "The Boys Next Door." McNally was furious, and the press insinuated that Lane didn't want to play another gay character. "So I played retarded instead of gay," Lane responded. "It was a matter of them waiting five weeks. But in retrospect, I wish I'd just turned the TV thing down. It wasn't worth the angst." He looked uncomfortable. "I don't want to reopen old wounds," he said. "Terrence and I have mended."
