No, I don't think he's a little bit gay or a lot gay. He fucked around on his wife all the time with women.
I never thought Soderbergh was even the least bit gay but I'm starting to wonder if I was completely wrong.
I'm also wondering what is happening with Behind The Candalabra?
I also wonder why he was taked into Magic Mike after simple having a beer with Channing Tatum.
[quote] Maybe he's...bi?
Don't be silly. Bi people are an urban myth.
He's a director, I guess he sticks it where ever he wants.
Nancy Walker directed Can't Stop the Music. JS.
His unpaid intern told us curious people everything about him.
He's one of the most uneven directors I can think of. I've watched 3 of his films in the past week or so (Side Effects, Bubble, and Magic Mike). Side Effects was decent, Bubble was bizarre (ended so abruptly I thought it must be missing 20 minutes), and Magic Mike was garbage, and not sexy in the least. I did like Behind the Candelabra, though.
He has major issues, most of which stem from his psycho mother. But I believe he's straight.
He's mean to Jules Asner.
Who keeps bumping my old threads?
Anyway, I vote for self-loathing closet case. Apparently when he was filming "Magic Mike" he kept telling the cast "This needs to be a musical!" It don't get no gayer than that, folks.
I started to suspect that he was gay because of his movies - Magic Mike, Behind the Candelabra. Straight men wouldn't direct something like that.
Jules Asner was with him at the Emmys. I guess she has forgiven him for the baby he had with another woman.
Either he or the cinematographer of Ocean's 11 has some gay in him given the prominence that the Damon Butt was given in the vault break in scene. It was pretty much the focus of that scene and was lovingly filmed. It was in another Soderbergh film, Behind the Candelabra, that the Damon Butt received unclothed prominence.
R18, Steven Soderbergh is the cinematographer on all his films.
Soderbergh strikes me as a late-bloomer. He's probably been preternaturally horny since adolescence (explains 'sex lies and videotape') and a huge voyeur/porn consumer. So homosexuality was inevitably the next step. "Magic Mike" is essentially a film about homoerotiphobia, the simultaneous erotic attraction and repulsion to one's own sex (see also: Fight Club). Soderbergh more or less admitted it when he said:
[quote]“We have edited together the full-length versions of all the routines. They’re pretty disturbing. Honestly, it’s very…we sent them all to Sue Kroll at Warner Brothers and she said, ‘I really like these a lot.’ I think it’s not for men, these things. It made me really uncomfortable to watch them. We did 10 or 12, [and] to watch them all back to back was really disturbing. So, I don’t know.”
He might as well have added "NO HOMO" at the end of that! And we all know what that means.
Trust me, in five-ten years he'll be married to a man.
R10 and R19, you made my day. Or at least this hour.
I thought when I left E! my fag hag days were over! Boy was I wrong!
What's the story with the link above, "Extension765" - is it real? A real intern ratting out Soderbergh's insane b.s.?
Schizopolis was cool as hell, tho.
Um, ladies, he also directed Sex, Lies and Videotape and Traffic (Academy Award), Ocean's 11, 12, etc., The Good German, Contagion, Erin Brokovich, Full Frontal and Solaris. Anyone seeing anything gay in them needs to be medicated.
Solaris was merely an excuse to get George Clooney's pants off.
Jules looked pretty worn out at the Emmys and like she had just been crying. Soderbergh didn't mention her in his acceptance.
I feel so sorry for Julie. Her husband is an awful person.
That intern twitter is spot-on.
Plucky, pert Jules always struck me as an odd match for brooding, austere intellectual Soderbergh... But she's exactly the type of woman a closeted gay man would marry. She "looks the part" of a trophy wife.
Here's his illegitimate baby named Pearl Button Anderson
