He's hot, hot, hot. Is he gay? He lives in Austin because he doesn't like Hollywood. Red flag: Joy asked him on The View this morning if he had a girlfriend. All he would say is he's "married to his career." I'd love to have him on our team.
So hot! He doesn't ping to me though.
He's straight. He's dated a number of local girls - no one famous, but I casually know one of them and she's a sweetheart (not to mention hot). Considering he'll have had three films come out in 2012 alone, all filmed far away from Austin, I'm not surprised he's presently single.
Who cares. He'll never be heard from again after this year.
Lol at r3!
He may still get a few roles here and there.
Look at Nicole Kidman.
So good in Friday Night Lights. He deserved better. And so damn hot.

He's not single--he clearly must be dating some girl in Europe.
Again, with big male movie stars, it happens all the time.
B-b-but, h-h-he...he...he, oh never mind.
I love him. He's hot. I think he'd kick back with a beer and let a dude blow him.
What business was it of Joy's to ask him a personal question like that? Why not just ask him about the movie?
[quote]Who cares. He'll never be heard from again after this year.
He still has a lead role in Oliver Stone's next film coming out later this summer. If you've forgotten about the potential that starring in an ultraviolent Stone film can have on one's career, look at Brad Pitt and Woody Harrelson.
His first 2 films this year bombed because they were bad films....no one in America knows who he is well enough to say "I am not going to see that Taylor Kitsch movie." I think he will be just fine if he picks better projects.
And lets dudes blow him.
I loved John Carter and thought a crappy marketing campaign and even crappier title doomed what was one of the most enjoyable sci-fi films I've ever seen. And not even Lawrence Olivier could've saved "Battleship." I think industry people understand that those films' underperformance isn't Taylor Kitsch's fault at all, though I bet studios will be more cautious about betting the farm on no-names as leads in the future.
By all accounts, Kitsch is hard-working, good to work with and very professional. He's also not a drunk or drugged-out mess and he's truly athletic, not just a hulked out gymrat, so he's perfect for roles that call for athleticism, like John Carter - he did all his own stunts and they're pretty amazing to watch on screen. So he'll keep getting work, if he picks smaller, more understated roles. I don't think he has a big enough personality to carry bombastic action films, but he's great in an ensemble.
And I totally think he's gay.
After he said "I'm married to my career", Joy said "So that means he's single, girls." And Taylor says "Uh, no."
Sherry asks what he means by married to his career and he said "Take it for what it is" very dismissively. Very weird and awkward exchange.
I want to know the reasons why people think he's gay. I don't have an opinion, I've never seen him move or heard him speak, but he's hot enough.
I worked with him on "FNL". Trust me, the camera loves him. Kind of short and blobby in person, no plains on the face, weird because I too thought he was so hot on the show -- but not in person.
How short he?
R14, the question is: why do interviewers always have to be so nosy about actor's personal lives today? They don't they just focus on their films, and lay off the personal questions?
50 years ago if you asked questions like that to Humphrey Bogart or Katharine Hepburn, they would punch the interviewer in the face.
Today people seem to have no problem asking personal questions.
I agree with Hugh's post at r13, except for the last line. I don't think Kitsch is gay, but I do think he's very private. I got the impression that saying he's married to his career was just to avoid talking about his personal life and not to hide in the closet. But who knows... That's just my take; I have no insider info.
[quote]How short he?
He's pretty definitively 5'10". I think that's average, but he's very broad and I think that makes him look shorter than he really is.
The "no planes on his face" person posts on every Taylor Kitsch thread. Sometimes he says that he worked on FNL, sometimes he says he knows him from around Austin, sometimes they have a mutual friend. Really odd.
There are a lot of reasons I think he could be gay. For one thing, he was Chace Crawford's "roommate" for a year or so. He used to party with the Matt Morrison/ JC Chasez/ Shawn Pyfrom/ Chace/ Colton Haynes/ Bryan Singer/ DLB crew, and I think all those guys are gay. Or maybe he's just open minded?
I've heard he's a little rough around the edges and eccentric one on one, coarse and off the cuff, and that some people find that refreshing and other people find it off putting. I've never met him, but he seems earnest and kind of awkward in interviews.
5'10 is not short, nor is 5'9 for that matter.
Anyway, speaking of Chace Crawford, they appeared together in "The Covenant", a 2006 movie about a group of young warlocks who spend most of their time half-naked.
Searching for movie now. I wanna blow him.
Which movie are you searching for, R22?
I thought that MHB said that Taylor was NOT gay, but very gay friendly?
Savages or Battleship. Netflix turns up 0 results. Looks like I have to go to Redbox or Blockbuster.
He and Hugh Jackman have been close. They vacationed together at one point. Make of that what you will.
R26, he actually said in an interview last year that Hugh Jackman introduced him to a few people to get the ball rolling on his career. Make of THAT what you will.
R25, why not check out "The Covenant"? You'll get Taylor and several others guys for the price of one.
[quote]Savages or Battleship. Netflix turns up 0 results. Looks like I have to go to Redbox or Blockbuster.
"Battleship" came out in May; "Savages" comes out later this month. You'll have to wait a while for the videos. That said, "John Carter" is out on DVD and has copious scenes of Taylor shirtless and/or in a veritable loincloth.
R26 & R27 - you've apparently forgotten that Hugh and Taylor co-starred in "Wolverine" together, which was indeed Taylor's first big-budget film. Doesn't surprise me that they're friends, but you also shouldn't read too much into it.
He's straight. I knew one of his close friends a few years ago when he was playing minor league hockey in my town. He played hockey with Taylor in high school and they're still good friends and hang out together. They love the ladies.
That remains to be seen, R30.
Time will tell.
If the stories he gives on late night talk shows are true, Taylor Kitsch hasn't played minor league hockey since he was 20, more than a decade ago.
And no, R29, that's where they met, but it's clear they kept in touch long after. Could be nothing though.
R31, it doesn't "remain to be seen." It's been reported on other Taylor Kitsch threads that he has an active love life, with women, in Austin, where he lives when he's not filming something.
He's gay. My brother has a friend of a friend who fucked him in a Hotel room, then left money on the bedside table thinking he was a hooker.
There, R30, now we're both liars.
Kitsch? That's unacceptable.
He's gay. I lived in Austin, where he lived, and worked as a key grip in FNL. He had a male friend who would frequently visit him on set who was gay, very sexy. The two would disappear for hours in his trailer.
He's bi. I know this for a fact because he dated two friends of mine, a male and a female.
A fact, I tell you. A fact.
Maybe we should call him bi, and leave it at that.
Fuck you all! He's pan.
He's trans. I live in Austin and worked on FNL as a personal assistant. I recall a big meeting about Taylor's transition from male to female and how they would incorporate this into the FNL storyline.
Sigh, it's funny how if the gossip was him being gay it would be accepted, but god forbid someone give gossip that a celebrity actually happens to be straight and people want to attack and mock them.
It defeats the purpose of gossiping if we assume every attractive celebrity must be gay, whats the point in trying to track down accurate stories about those who actually are gay?
Because it's not gossip, R41. It's usually some self-loathing, or homophobic shrill posting "he's straight!" shit all over the board, and we are mocking those assholes for it.
At this point I'm going with gay.
[quote]Sigh, it's funny how if the gossip was him being gay it would be accepted
This is a GAY GOSSIP SITE, braintrust.
Anyway, Taylor actually has a cute guy friend who travels with him, worked with him on FNL in some capacity, and lives in Austin. If you look through any fan gallery of Taylor Kitsch candids, you'll see this guy in many of them dating back at least 3 years. Here's them partying with Rihann some time this year. The traveling companion is in aviators and a red t-shirt.
Pretty sure that's also him on the left, this is them going back to Austin from LAX a few days ago. I'm pretty sure there are some pics from this pap shoot that you can see it's the same guy but I can't find it right now.
I saw him on some talk show a few months back, and I have to say he pinged a little.
Supposedly he revealed he was uncut during an interview in Canada a few years ago.
Dude at R20, it's "plains" not "planes" as in airplanes and I can assure you I am the guy who posts this on several threads -- but the origins of how I met him NEVER change. I acted with him on the show and that's it, no mutual friends, no Austin anything, no gossip, just a weird response to how NOT hot he looked in person.
Not sure who you are troll-dar ing but my story always remains the same. Trust me, meeting and working with him was no big deal (I've worked with bigger and better, ha).
I'd like to sniff his musky "John Carter" loincloth.
R45, R30 here. That's the friend I was talking about. He plays hockey in England now. He has an MBA from the University of Sheffield. He lived with Kitsch for a while when Kitsch first went to NYC.
I love how just asking if you have a girlfriend is some intrusive personal question.
She asked if he had a girlfriend...not his social security number or his home address.
R53, I think you miss the point. I realize that's a common question today, but his reaction shows that there are some actors who are sick of being asked about it, particularly on national television.
His reaction indicates that it is an intrusive personal question to some people.
I think you're being a bit melodramatic.
R50, it's Planes, not Plains.
I can't get beyond his stupid name.
LOL at R50's whole post.
I love Taylor Kitsch :) I want marry with him~~!!! I'm a girl anyway!
He makes awful movies - John Carter and Battleship. He's also too short.
What ethnicity is he? Kitsch - it sounds German.
He's a schnitzel schnapper!
I'm stupidly wading into this argument with this contribution. Take it or leave it.
The guy is either straight, bi or deeply closeted.
He was at Chantal Bergron's (who was doing hair on one of his films, I forget which) bday dinner about 5 years ago and he had his tongue shoved down some girls throat for the 20 minutes he was there.
He wasnt famous back then though. The only reason I remember him is because 1) none of his other co-stars showed. It wasnt a glitzy type of dinner but its always nice when your work colleagues show up.
2) they were so inappropriate.
He's 5'6". Also, he's shaved 7-8 years off his age.
Taylor Kitsch,I know that u will never read this post.Anyway I wanna tell u,that I'm in love with u sooo sooo sooo much!U r the man of my dream!I've never met someone like you in my life!I don't know why but your eyes seem sad very often even though you smile.you look very sincere and straight,true and noble!I wish to have you in my life!!!I wish you all the best!
By far the biggest flameout and flop in Hollywood in several decades.
Girls, why would you bump this lame thread?
Why do you care about this pocket gay?
He is not a flame-out, r65...you need to get a life!
I wouldn't be so sure..ie. person who thinks he will dissapear. There are always opportunities for those who can acutally act. Taylor Kitsch is a professional.
I think Taylor is just gay friendly, because he's close friends with JC Chasez. And, Taylor has amazing abs!
I would do him so dirty he would be so rough and i would love every minute
He's not gay. I know a few of his past girlfriends since we are from the same place. He is actually tall. He is 6 feet. His two movies were not a hit because of marketing not because of him. He is one of the nicest people you will ever meet and yes he is just as good
looking in person.
That's fine R73, but he's got the flop smell on him. 3 high profile flops (including the Oliver Stone movie) in the same year are hard to live down.
I find his face ugly now. I hate that tiny little pig nose and puffy face ew.
And the taint of John Carter will follow him for a while. It was branded the biggest flop of all time (even though that's not the truth). Add another notable flop in 2012 and he's completely over as a lead in big budget films. He'll probably still carve out a very respectable career though.
Try [italic]the Bang Bang Club[/italic] to see both Taylor Kitsch and Ryan Philippe.
Taylor Kitsch was the least of John Carter's problems.
Taylor Kitsch has a very pretty...and tasty...pee-pee.
