What celebrity would shock you to find out he''s "Rock Hudson" scale gay.
None of this bisexual, trysexual stuff. 100% proof! No interest in the ladies.%0D\
Me: Jack Nicholson. If so, he put on a real good show. %0D\
Remember,don''t post men who may have tried the homosex a time or two, but who are mainly into women. In Hollywood, that doesn''t mean much.%0D\
Jake Gyllenhaal. Put on a damn good show.
Definitely Jack Nicholson for me as well. I''m not normally surprised when an actor is revealed as gay or bi, but I would be shocked about Nicholson.
R1, thanks for a laugh!
in honor of the old dead geezer''s 100th birthday
The late Dennis Hopper\
Charles Nelson Riley
Warren Beatty. Now that''s a guy who''d I call a womanizer in his heyday. Would be shocked if that was all for publicity and all the women played along.
Didn''t Gore Vidal say something to that effect about Beatty, that a man who has had that many women has something to prove to himself?
Mostly Black actors to be honest:%0D\
And old times like%0D\
None of the young up and comers would surprise me really.
R24, you don''t know much about them as a community.
Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson\
29 replies and no MEL GIBSON?
The best PR team in history.
Taye Diggs, r29? Really? He''s prettier than most women, he''s into musical theatre, and you''d REALLY be shocked to find out he''s gay? I''m gonna be shocked if we don''t find out he''s at least a little gay.
Armande Assante seems to fly under the radar.
Robert de Niro''s father (a painter, also called Robert) was "bi", but subsequently came out as gay.
Gore Vidal has probably had more than his share of male partners. Does he have something to prove to himself?
Is Paul McCartney alleged to be gay? I haven''t done much looking into the subject, but I read his autobiography Many Years From Now several years ago, along with a ton of interviews he''s given over the years, and he definitely doesn''t come across as 100% straight.
r13 wins. I can imagine the rest as doing the homosex.%0D\
The only other one that would shock me would be Prince Harry. %0D\
Will is probably bi.
Shock me, or shock America? I''ve heard gay rumors about half the names posted so far.\
If he actually came out, no one could top Clint Eastwood for the shock effect that would have.
Another vote for Will Ferrell. I don''t know how he got to be one of the pinnacles of heterosexual masculinity, but somehow, he is.
Sorry, I don''t understand that anyone could really think that Paul McCartney is gay. Since he''s been in the public eye he has had a steady girlfriend or been married. His girlfriend during the 60s, Jane Asher, left him because he was banging groupies left and right. He was married to Linda nearly 30 years before she died. He then pulled the typical straight man move of replacing his wife before he was really over her death by marrying the one legged golddigger. If he was trying to cover up his gayness he could have easily coasted to the end of his life as a single man and a grieving widower.%0D
Armande Assante is definately not totally gay. He hit on my sister and when she turned him down, he was a real asshole.
He may very well be straight R49, but that''s not enough evidence. He could be deeply closeted and genuinely needs a woman on his arm, with his gay encounters limited to anonymous or fuck-buddy experiences.
This is difficult, because op used the word "shocked" -- so, McCartney''s homosexuality would be shocking! %0D\
It would have to be someone that we think of as totally hetero ... again, difficult, because there are so many I think of possibly going any way the wind blows. %0D\
I would be shocked to find this out about: no one.
So which of these ''shocking'' names are there actual gay rumors about?
Is there something special or pristeen about Paul McCartney that precludes the possibility of gayness?%0D\
As far as I can tell, his apparently drippy/needy history with women may be no more than a succession of beards and baby buckets or companionship. %0D\
Oh yeah, they''re probably genuine, but tbh how would anyone be surprised?
he said it was just a phase when he was younger...what the hell did I know...I was like a 19 year old Aussie..he was cute...he had a nice house...they said I could be a movie star....
Nicole K. ,1 win 3 nominations (all lead! no supporting, taller)
All so called "straight"men. The handsome ones, I mean.%0D\
All closeted gays.
I assume R48''s list is meant as a joke?
Larry King. Bill Clinton. Woody Allen.
Lance Bass - he''s so masculine!
Dwayne Johnson (The Rock)\
All the handsome guys are gay.
[R67] As much as I wish you were right, it''s just not the case. Google Mark Vanderloo, and you''ll see. And he''s just one of the many cases that prove you''re wrong...(sigh)
Why would anybody be surprised about Mel being gay?
Ted C once did a BI about some meanie horrid closet case keeping a young guy at his home while openly ranting about gays. People pegged Mel for that.%0D\
R66, I remember years ago The Rock was rumored to be bi or gay, with waiters mostly, for some reason! %0D\
No idea if true. He is gay-friendly but also seemed very devoted to his family. I think he may have split from his wife now. What''s he doing these days?
"The Rock was rumored to be bi or gay, with waiters mostly, for some reason!"\
This sounds HOT~~~~\
Thanks for posting it [R70]
No worries, r71. IsHeSheGay used to have a few good bits of gossip about him but it was many years ago.%0D\
Honestly, to answer the original question, I can say hand on heart it would surprise me who was secretly gay or bi. It would not surprise me if Jack Nicholson, Ahmedinnerjacket of Iran or Shirley Phelps were gay.
"no one could top Clint Eastwood"\
that made me giggle. then shudder.
R56 wins for pure shock value. James Bond himself likes the dick!
Now wait, I''ve had nasty sex fantasies about Shia, so there is definitely a possibility.
Eric Mabius of Ugly Betty
r83 - Is that a joke? JC was presumed gay, even on mainstream tennis boards, for years. The recent marriage is a head-scratcher.
Consider McCartney is widely quoted as saying if Lennon came back from the dead for a day, they''d spend the day in bed. And he''s also reminded interviewers of the MALE groupies that were available, I''m guessing him being 100% straight is more shocking than him being 100% gay. (Though I don''t believe he''s 100% anything).
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
