He was so convincing in As Good As It Gets as a gay guy. The facial expressions and mannerisms were pitch-perfect.\
Either gay or a very talented actor.
shanaynay but if yea would be a pocket gay.
I think he comes from a religious family.
And frankly? Over.
He used to be so cute but I saw him recently and he has aged terribly. Age is a bitch on white guys.
I've never seen any positive proof to indicate that he's straight.
I was in love with him circa 1997. Haven't seen him in ages.
I remember seeing him on The Soup back in the 90s. He was taking the piss out of himself, and was very funny and charming. I've had an extremely soft spot for him ever since.
There's no proof that he's not gay.
He was my neighbor for 5 years. He's straight. He dated 2 women during that time before he began dating the woman whom he married. Quiet guy.
He strikes me as straight. Cute, but not very interesting.
He used to do Talk Soup?!?! How did he manage to go from that to winning an Oscar? He must have a terrific agent.

Please! He was just a mere nominee.
He coulda been a contender. What the hell happened?
I think he deserved to win for "As Good As It Gets". Sorry, but Robin Williams for "Good Will Hunting" was okay, but didn't deserve an Oscar.
He was hysterical on The Soup.
His dad was in the CIA or something and he grew up around the world.
He's got those cocksucker lips.
He got discovered on The Soup by Sydney Pollack (Sydney loved blonde men----Redford for example) and cast in Sabrina. That started his film career.
Wait. r18, are you saying Sidney Pollack was gay?!?! This may be the best gossip I have heard in YEARS.
[quote]He was hysterical on The Soup.
Back in the 90s it was "Talk Soup," since it focused on the then-plentiful daytime talk show genre. The show became "The Soup" when reality shows became the dominant trash genre.
I was just wondering whatever happened to John Henson, the guy who succeeded Greg Kinnear in the late 90s ("Since 2008, Henson has co-hosted the ABC obstacle course game-show, Wipeout" -- who knew?), and to my surprise his Wikipedia entry identifies him as African-American. How did I never realize he was black?
Or maybe that's a joke.
[quote]Wait. [R18], are you saying Sidney Pollack was gay?!?!
Not r18, but Laurents autobiography spent a lot of time discussing Pollack's Aryan worship of Redford. He intimated that there was a man-crush at minimum.
Thanks for that, r21. Interesting idea about Pollack and Redford. I wonder if there is a similar erotic charge between Scorsese and di Caprio (not to mention the previous dynamic between Scorsese and de Niro.)
It is the ideal personification of how those directors see themselves. Call it a crush if you must.
Yes, I see, Dr. Adler. How many other director/actor pairs like this are there in film history? John Ford and John Wayne? Fellini and Mastroianni? Burton and Depp? Earlier I think Spike Lee and Denzel Washington had an erotic collaboration. On somewhat similar grounds, I think it even works for the male director/female star dynamic. It makes more sense to me that Hitchcock wanted to BE Ingrid Bergman or Grace Kelly than he wanted them sexually. Or von Sternberg & Dietrich. Or Almodovar and Carmen Maura or Penelope Cruz.
