If an actor came out as bisexual, would you believe him?
Much more acceptable for women, OP. \
Some publicists even push it because it can be seen as "edgy". Notice all the females on your list are alternative...you wouldn''t catch a Reese Witherspoon type admitting to be a muff king.
The public accepts bi women over bi men, its just the way it is....better to keep it hush if you are a bi man other wise people will just say you are a self loathing gay man.
Didn''t Billy Joe from Green Day at least claim for publicity to be bisexual without anybody being convinced that he ever fooled around with a guy?
R3, I''d think he was taking an easy route for coming out as gay.
Men who claim they are bisexual are really gay.\
Women who claim they are bisexual are really straight, but desperate to be perceived as edgy.\
It boils down to the superiority of the penis.
Cold Hard Truth
What about me?
Lindsay, formerly known as Lindsay Lohan
Angelina slept with 2 one night stand women. She''s never had a long term relationship, and she is only involved with men. Not gay, nor bi.\
Drew had a relationship with a woman once, but that woman is straight now too, and Drew only hooks up with men now. Not gay nor bi. She was experimenting that''s it.\
Megan Fox - please. I think the only person she''s ever slept with was the guy she married.\
Evan Rachel Wood. Again, full of shit.\
Billy Joe "short stuff" Armstrong who is about 5''3" tall claimed to be bi but was never bi/ gay/ none of it. Married one of his groupies.
Alan Cumming = Gay.
When did Evan Rachel Wood come out as bi?
Robert Downey JR is bi but then "in" himself when when he become popular with Iron Man\
R15,Here you go\
Evan Rachel Wood In Sexy Lingerie, Announces Bisexuality
If announcing any sort of bi gay behavior had the cache for men it has for female stars and less stigma, you''d have tons of hippie attention whores like the Green Day singer. There''s been a few British musicians (probably due to slightly less negativity in Britain for gay males) that fit that bill.\
I look forward to the days when male bisexuality is considered hot/naughty/interesting, so you gay boys can suffer the faux-bis like lesbians do.\
Anyways, these actors are gay not bi OP, and I''m sure you know why they''re not out: fear, understandable in most cases, just plain old greed and lack of backbone in the rest.
British actors are ok to say they''re bi until they hit America.
[quote]Angelina slept with 2 one night stand women. She''s never had a long term relationship\
I thought she had a long-term relationship with Jenny Shimizu?
or whatever her name is. during gia.
There is Saffron Burrows. She dated Alan Cumming and now she is with a woman I believe.
How many of these female bisexuals actually have or had gfs? They all say it for publicity. Most or all have never been anywhere near a snatch.
Tom Hardy never said he was bisexual, he just said he screwed around with a guy or two when he was completely wasted on heavy drugs. Also he seemed to regret it.
What about Franco?
Didn''t Angelina have a relationship with that Asian model?
Lady Gaga wishes she was bi so she can claim outsider status and be "One of us." She may have experimented with a woman or two but so have half of my female friends, who identify as straight. It ends up making it harder for real bisexuals.
There's a lot more bisexuality with female and male actors/musicians/ artists but the public doesn't really hear about it. %0D
If an actress dated another woman for a few months, paps would just assume they were friends. If a musician fucks around with other musicians, no one really discusses it.%0D
BJ Armstrong did say he was bi and there are vids of him kissing guys but since he got married young and his wife has his balls in check, he's not going to be messing around with guys in public.%0D
Pete Wentz and Mikey Way from MCR were rumored to have had an affair during 2005 Warped tour. The fans talked about it but it didn't go public. Gerard Way and Frank Iero also from My Chem kiss in front of fans but it's not something that anyone out of the scene cares about. If Gerard messed with Bert McCraken from The Used back in the day, that's old news. Other scenester musicians are also suspect in their behavior but it's not like the Rolling Stone is going to talk about it or ask them.%0D
Point is, it's rare for the press to discuss males or females who they know/suspect are engaging in same sex behavior. Even those women who come out as bi, they could probably screw half of LA and no one would report it.
r31, I can tell you are a female.
Bisexuality is a lot more common than people think. People put too much emphasis on labels.
I think just Amber Heard but I doubt that she''s ever going to be "anyone". She was bi before she was full on gay so you know how that goes.
I didn''t realize it before but Mikey Way did look like a Lisa Loeb.
r34,I see you are one of those girls who are into m/m band slash. Are you a member of livejournal?
r38 = Pete''s PR flack
Still laughing at seeing Angelina Jolie and Drew Barrymore being considered as "young".
Angelina Jolie has pussy cheese. She''s mass producing it to sell at Whole Foods.
Pete Wentz can''t be inned, he already acknowledged that he''s bisexual. IIRC he tried to backtrack slightly when he married Ashley Simpson by saying that he hadn''t been with a guy in years, but he didn''t deny it.
I remember Pete Wentz on the cover of Out announcing that he made out with guys but never actually admitted to fucking or dating guys. I am not sure if he counts as a totally out bisexual or just a publicity whore.
You morons claiming to know every detail of these celebs personal lives really need to get one of your own.
Men who claim they are bisexual are really gay%0D\
I strongly disagree
Still laughing at seeing Angelina Jolie and Drew Barrymore being considered as "young".%0D\
Robert Downey Junior, ca.1985
There''s something to be said about 1960''s/1970''s Hollywood and the sexual revolution, when truly bisexual men actually admitted it (Richard Burton, Marlon Brando), or at the very least - not wanting to be perceived as old schoolers Olivier or Kaye - did not deny it (Stony Curtis, Steve McQueen).%0D\
Yes, they also came out as bi because it was hip, groovy, and with it.%0D\
Lee Majors, still crouched in the back corner of the closet
Young bi guys are just straight guys experimenting and having fun. There is a reason so many gay men feel bitter or suspicious toward bi guys, the fact is almost every bi guy will always choose a woman over a guy and will almost always end up living a conventionally hetero life by the time he is 30.
I would say that George Clooney is bisexual. At least that''s what a friend who dated an associate of his told me.
[quote]Tom Hardy never said he was bisexual, he just said he screwed around with a guy or two when he was completely wasted on heavy drugs. Also he seemed to regret it.%0D\
Oh look it''s the Tom Hardy PR flack again. Wondered when you''d pop up. How''s Charlotte btw? Still split from Tom? (Smart girl.) %0D\
The only ''seeming to regret it'' is inside your head.
But he''s not open about it R49.
Despite the bisexual naysayers and those that argue everything MUST be for PR purposes or attention, I think bisexuals do exist.%0D\
People that spend time arguing and analysing it all need to get a lfe tbh. If these people are causing you no harm what''s the point?
Billie Joe Armstrong\
Tom Hardy \
Have all acknowledged their bisexuality, and the public accepts that their primary attractions are toward women because of their frequent and well-documented female relationships.\
Andy Dick insists he is bisexual, but I think we all know he''s mostly gay.\
Daniel Tosh implies that he is bisexual on his show without ever disclosing his sexuality -- he taunts people who question him about it.
Too many guys that claim to be bi are actually gay. It''s a way for them to be more accepted and it helps keep the self-loathing at bay. A true bisexual is rare amongst homo sapiens.
I think bisexual males are more straight than gay.
Billie Joe Armstrong and Pete Wentz qualified their coming out as bisexual by saying they had never acted on it. Sounds like attention whores.
Add Brett Anderson from "Suede" to that list, r56 - I think the quote went "I''m a bisexual who has never had a homosexual experience", or something like that.
Brett was "culturally gay" - he was attracted to gay culture and liked teasing the boys. Privately, he dated Indian women.\
Andy Dick is obviously gay.
That guy from some Brit boyband came out as bisexual, Duncan from Blue, by claiming he had a few flings with guys in his past. But he kept going on about how much we was turned on by women, most fans and media commentators just thought it as an attention seeking pr stunt and he was really straight.
Although any guy who dated Justine Frischmann has to be at least bi.
To any who claim bisexuality does not exist or that most bisexual guys are really straight-getting-head, go to any adult bookstore, train station bathroom, truck stop, gym shower/sauna, bathhouse, and start counting the wedding rings.
Don not try this in MA, CT, DC, NH, VT, IA,
Do I believe that there are people that are sexually attracted to both sexes, yes. Do I believe that many people claim to be bisexual for attention, as a step in coming out, to be seen as edgy, to turn on men (in the case of many women), yes. I believe most of the people who claim to be bisexual are in the latter category.
r61 if you could ever get any of those guys to be truthful, I suspect you would find that they do not enjoy sex with women as much as they do with men. They may state that they love their wives and they probably do, but they are not turned on by them. If being bisexual means that you are able to have sex with either sex, then they are bi; if it means being sexually to either sex, no they are gay.
I agree with r62.
Here we go again...
Strike Nelly Furtado and Nicki Minaj from your list, R6. They recanted as quickly as they made their claim. I believe Gaga also falls into the "theoretical" strain of bisexuality.%0D\
And who the hell is Jesse J?
So a woman who kisses men and is attracted to them but has never had full on sexual intercourse with a man is not heterosexual or capable of opposite sex desire?%0D\
Same shit, different day with people who are attracted to the same sex but only engage in certain behaviors without full on sex.%0D\
Many people engage in same sex and opposite behavior but they are primarily attracted to one gender or the other. Doesn''t make them less bisexual in behavior. It just makes them prefer one gender over the other. That''s what bisexuality is. Doesn''t mean that bisexuals are 50% into one gender and 50% into another.
sexuality is not black or white for everybody
Most people who have had sex with both sexes don''t even claim to be bisexual. That''s why stats re: same-sex self identification can seem like a crock. You''ll have 2% of the population self-identifying as gay or bisexual but 15-20% of the society having had at least one same sex encounter since the age of 15 resulting in orgasm (either for themselves or their partner).
I''d rather talk about bye-sexuals, who are the people who can''t stop talking about other people''s orientations, which is fine, but who then argue about whether various categories exist and what they mean and how the mix and how they mingle and what it represents in terms of penguins and solar flares and tumors and right hemisphere brains and PR and Madonna and the other Madonna and Britney''s tongue and RDJ or if he should be RDJr or just RD now that his dad is dead or RDjr or RoDo or if his wife knows or his bf knows or his prison guards knew and if he blew or got fucked or fucked or banged or liked it or fucked women while being dildoed or fingered and if the finger counts as bi or if it''s a guy''s dick and RoDo imagines it to be a baby girl''s fist is it bi or just perverted if the baby girl has a tiny sock stuffed into her diaper so it makes her look like a baby boy and you see that''s when it is and why it is\
r69=10lbs of shit in a 5lb bag.
Lady Gaga has MAJOR MAJOR bi-face. I would NEVER assume she was really straight.\
I see Amber Heard as the new Portia De Rossi. Took her a while to sort out her homoness.
So I recently read this interview with Owen Pallett (Afterelton directed me there) in which he calls Morrissey gay and Sufjan Stevens straight. WTF? I''d say he is wrong on both accounts. Morrissey probably is a Kinsey 5, while Sufjan is a Kinsey 2. I know they arent young, or actors, but this seemed the only thread where my rant would fit in.
[quote]Lady Gaga has MAJOR MAJOR bi-face\
Is bi-face "beggars can''t be choosers face"?\
If so, yes Gaga has it in spades.
[quote]Lady Gaga has MAJOR MAJOR bi-face.%0D\
If by bi-face, you mean bi-polar, then yes, I agree with you completely.
Ha ha, Gaga totally does have bi-face. She is a shameless famewhore so I think that is the only reason why I defend her against accusations of faking it to sell records
Openly bisexual actors\
Alan Cumming, Andy Dick, Ra%C3%BAl Esparza
You guys who feel some since of "victory" because some married guy cruises by the truck stop to get a free anonymous blowjob from you are seriously delusional and sad.%0D\
Women have too much self-respect to serve as someone''s free anonymous cum dumpster. Getting sex out of them requires an investment of either money or time. %0D\
The guys who are cruising you aren''t necessarily closeted gays, most of them are just practical.
[quote]You guys who feel some since of "victory" because some married guy cruises by the truck stop to get a free anonymous blowjob from you are seriously delusional and sad.%0D\
You are the one who''s delusional if you think that married guys just go there to "get blow jobs" %0D\
Counting the wedding rings on those giving blow jobs, handling dicks, eating ass, getting fucked etc will produce a MUCH HIGHER number than those just being passive oral recipients. %0D\
You are obviously not experienced in the field of truckstop sex. It doesn''t make you better or more righteous than anyone else posting here ... but it does make you ignorant about the subject matter and married guys.%0D\
Oh,... and ignorant about spelling the word "sense."
I hate know-it-alls
Hey, the wives want the emotions of a marriage and don''t want the bjs, the men want the bjs and the trappings of a marriage.\
Sounds like a win-win situation, with the exception of the AIDs risk to the wife.
You know, alot of actresses come out as bi but no actors are brave enough to take that step. I think that''s kind of sad.
I thought Butler came out as bi? Maybe he was kidding?
[quote]but no actors are brave enough to take that step.%0D\
They were in the seventies
[quote]You are obviously not experienced in the field of truckstop sex.\
And the fact that you not only *are*, but also feel the need to brag about it, is nothing short of completely pathetic.\
[quote]It doesn''t make you better or more righteous than anyone else posting here ... but it does make you ignorant about the subject matter and married guys.\
I''m not R77, but I think *you* are the ignorant and deluded one here, thinking that bisexuality must truly exist on the basis of truckstop tricks doing more than sitting back and letting guys blow them. Newsflash: THEY ARE ALL GAY. They go home to their wives and, assuming they even still fuck them (which is not a given - an increasing number of couples married over ten years have separate bedrooms), fantasize about gay sex while doing so, which they''ve been doing since day one.
I don''t see a problem with truckstop sex. I''m just sayin''...it''s better than no sex.
Unless you feel there''s no bigger turn-off than a closet case.
Ah, yeah! As in, HEL-LO?
r77 / r79 And that is why, whether with a man or another woman, they will always cheat on you.
Bi-face, Judas, GaGa, haha!
Megan Fox has always been full of shit.\
She claims to be whatever is hip or hot at the moment.
They wouldn''t do it if I hadn''t done it first.
[quote]They wouldn''t do it if I hadn''t done it first. by: M. Ciccone %0D\
Is that so?
Fuck you bitches, I had more men and women than both of you combined.
Dave Matthews said he was, but he doesn''t say it any more...
"Angelina slept with 2 one night stand women. She's never had a long term relationship, and she is only involved with men. Not gay, nor bi.
Drew had a relationship with a woman once, but that woman is straight now too, and Drew only hooks up with men now. Not gay nor bi. She was experimenting that's it.
Megan Fox - please. I think the only person she's ever slept with was the guy she married.
Evan Rachel Wood. Again, full of shit.
Billy Joe "short stuff" Armstrong who is about 5'3" tall claimed to be bi but was never bi/ gay/ none of it. Married one of his groupies."
okay mr/ms i know everyone sexuality.
Angelina has had a relationship with a women, with Jenny Shimizu. Angelina even says it.
I doubt Megan only slept with the guy shes married to, but since you know her sex life i guess she hasn't. I strong believe she is attracted to women, maybe she hasn't slept or did many with them but doesn't mean shes not bi.
Evan Rachel Wood even discussed it with Esquire Magazine, look it up.
& for billie joe..
he told the advocate
"I think I've always been bisexual. I mean, it's something that I've always been interested in. I think people are born bisexual, and it's just that our parents and society kind of veer us off into this feeling of 'Oh, I can't.' They say it's taboo. It's ingrained in our heads that it's bad, when it's not bad at all. It's a very beautiful thing."
and in 2010 he told OUT magazine..
"There were a lot of people who didn't accept it, who were homophobic." Armstrong continued, saying, "The fact that it's an issue is kind of phobic within itself. At some point, you gotta think, this should be something that's just accepted." Armstrong added: "I don't really classify myself as anything. And when it comes to sex, there are parts of me that are very shy and conservative. I want to respect my wife."
even if he says he doesn't like to be classified as anything, to society, hes bi.
Okay basically nobody here KNOWS what these people are, all of you are just guessing, which is fine, but stop sounding so authoritative because your only exhaustive knowledge is of gossip sites and blogs. %0D\
None of us are under their beds so how the fuck can we claim to know who is truly bi or not? I''m not going to spout Megan Fox or Evan Wood are lying just because it''s trendy to bash down any female who says they are bisexual. For all I know they might be.
@[R25] Saffron Burrows was with Fiona Shaw for a while. The press seemed quite matter-of-fact about it, too.
Bisexuality is its own sexual orientation just like being gay or straight is, and bisexuality is not a mixture of heterosexuality and homosexuality.
No you don't have to be 50/50 or fall in love with both genders in order to be bisexual.
Yes men are just as likely to be bisexual as women are.
A person is bisexual even if they marry or only have sex with a single gender, it's like how you can be gay and a total virgin and yet you're still gay, and how men who are gay who marry women are still gay.
R14 actually Alan Cumming is bisexual.
Chistopher Meloni is but that's been know about for awhile.
Agree with R61 bisexuality exists in men and always has.
To suggest otherwise or that they're all just closeted gay men shows ignorance about human sexuality.
Angelina Jolie is a young actress? When did that happen?
No one has mentioned Ezra Miller? Although I think he is more theoretically bi-sexual than practicing.
"Men who claim they are bisexual are really gay.
Women who claim they are bisexual are really straight, but desperate to be perceived as edgy."
Strength in numbers, particularly when it comes to voting for gay rights.
Do you really want us all gone from the GLBT voting bloc? Odd choice.
r76 There isn't a woman alive who would have sex with any of those 3. Well, maybe if she was blind.
all actors and people in the arts have the
"bi-sexual" capability in them. They are creative people and that creativity does not stop when they are having sexual encounters. That is why non-creative creatures cannot understand. Everything to them is a label or black and white. Anything goes, so just go with it.
no such thing as male bisexuality
Leo Dicaprio comes across as bi. Any stories about him besides his early infatuation with David Blaine
Are any of you planning on dating these people listed?
R107 I don't know. To me, it seems impossible for bisexuality NOT to exist. I know a handful of people, male and female, who wish they weren't bisexual. But they get turned on by both. And no, they don't go around doing everyone and everything they see. It makes me sad when people who identify bisexual are invalidated or given a bad rap.
Gay men or straights for that matter are not qualified to opine on bisexuality.
By the very fact that you are only attracted to one sex means that you cannot wrap your arms around the reality of being attracted to both sexes to varying degrees. And most of you are closed minded fucks who would be homophobes if you were straight.
So stop talking out of your arses.
"none of this back and forth back and forth PICK ONE ALREADY."----
Suzanne Sugarbaker on why she always outs bisexuals to their parents
Actress Olivia Thirlby came out as bi in In Style magazine last month.
"Yes men are just as likely to be bisexual as women are."
Studies show otherwise.
Yes, men can be bi but women are much more likely to be bi than men.
I think Elias Koteas is bisexual. He was married to actress Jennifer Rubin in the late 80s but is never publicly linked with anyone, he has played almost as many bisexual characters as Peter Sarsgaard, and he always seems flirty and tactile with male co-stars at premieres and other events.
R114: male behavior in prison, seminaries, the military and single-sex boarding schools throughout the ages says otherwise.
That's considered adaptive behavior, R116. Once removed from those environments, the subjects generally revert back to their primary inclinations.
[quote] Drew Barrymore
Drew Barrymore hasn't been young for 20 years!
They had a few papers come out in the last several years that show that men indeed can be bisexual, one of them put out by the same group of authors who had previously "disproved" male bisexuality in 2005.
One of the more interesting ones had to do with pupil dilation (which cannot be self-suppressed, as tumescence/engorgement can).
So yes, male bisexuality definitely exists.
R119 - I heard about that study. I believe it was larger and used participants who had actually had relationships with both men and women.
R115, Peter Sarsgaard plays bisexual characters amusingly often.
The only young male actors I can think of that are young and put are: the lead from The Life and Times of RJ Berger (Paul Icano), Ezra Miller, and Thomas Dekker. Though the first said he's mostly gay and the other two never used the word bisexual but said they were "open" to dating men and women.
r116, if you had common sense you wouldn't confuse situational homosexuality with bisexuality
Oh I see, R116/R114 male bisexual behavior has a *completely different* name and happens under special circumstances that, when they are applied to women, certainly would never, ever foster female bisexual behavior, so idiots like you can say bisexual male behavior doesn't really exist--or is extremely rare. I know! I'm going to make up some new name for female bisexuality. That way female bisexuality won't really exist either.
