Girls star Andrew Rannells lost his virginity at age 16 to a man more than twice his age, RadarOnline.com has learned.

In his new memoir, Too Much Is Not Enough, the actor, now 40, reflected on his teenage years growing up in Omaha, Nebraska before he made it big on Broadway.

Rannells revealed his exploration of his homosexuality began with a 40-year-old man he met through a theater group.

“It was 1995, I was 16 years old, and I thought I knew it all,” Rannells wrote. “I saw an opportunity and decided to go for it. Sex seemed very far away.”

Rannells explained his sexual acts with the 40-year-old man started off “slow.”

“I trusted him and I believed that this was safe and somehow blameless,” Rannells admitted. “Once a certain level of touching was reached, everything came together rather quickly.”

One day, Rannells said he “snuck off” to see the 40-year-old.

“Clothes started to come off, and that felt even more wrong/exciting,” he wrote. “I wasn’t attracted to him, but it was a man’s body and a mouth and I had never experienced either.”

Rannells said he did not love the man who took his virginity. He added that, as a minor, he struggled for over a year to get the guy to leave him alone.

“I continued to have sex with this man but tried to avoid him as much as possible,” Rannells reflected. “I tried to make excuses about why I couldn’t see him, but he would eventually wear me down and I would agree to spend time with him.”

The former Girls star said that it’s been 20 years since he last saw the man. Still, he admitted he gets “scared” to run into him during his hometown visits to Nebraska.

In 1997, Rannells moved to New York City to pursue his acting career. In addition to landing a role on Lena Dunham's former HBO show, he is also well known for his roles on the Broadway stage including The Book of Mormon.
