Has it become accepted among straights that Tom Cruise is gay?
Stars drop references about Cruise and Travolta all the time, but does middle America get it? Travolta, yes, finally.
I was just on the IMDb Sports Board and one topic (started by a straight man) is: "OT: Gay American icon Tom Cruise to be divorced." The only disagreement is from their resident troll. I was little surprised.
We don't want him.
Yes, a 50 yr old Frau from work thinks he's straight
After the divorce from Nicole, the straights started to realize what an incredibly creepy and artificial person Tom Cruise was, so they didn't want him any more.
I have always thought he's asexual. Neither straight nor gay. He exudes...well...nothing. Not one iota of any sex appeal. My vote is asexual.
Is he into the a-sex?
I agree, R5. And he can love only himself. Not that that's a bad thing, in fact some very attractive men can love only themselves.
It's accepted that Obama care is Universal Health care but it's not.
It's accepted that Obama allowing 800,000 illegal aliens and their parents to break the law and stay is OK but it's not
Right is right no matter who says it's wrong. And WRONG is ALWAYS wrong no matter who says it's right.
You can say 1+2=8 but that don't make it so.
I can't wait till 2014 when you 'mos start bitching on here how you can't afford healthcare or you went from Blue Cross to Medicaid.
Oh wait most of you 'mos are already on AIDS related disability anyway
Jesus, how'd a freeper manage to post on Tom Cruise thread?
I know of many clueless people who think he's straight.
Most of them will believe anything they're told by Entertainment Tonight or People. That's what closet cases count on.
Because its a closet case, trolling for it's own jollies, with the venom of self loathing to compensate for it's cowardly existence.r9
I feel sorry for him in a way. He strikes me as someone who is very repressed. I think the Scientology ruined him. Completely. Maybe if he sufferes some shock, like Katie getting full custody of Suri, he will look inside himself. He is definitely not at peace. He is a wreck, IMO. Whether he's gay or straight he seems like a really miserable person. I mean, yeah, he's a mega-rich man, but I can't really stand to look at him anymore he makes me so uncomfortable.
My GF thinks he's straight (she doesn't read gossip mags, internet forums etc).
The Katie Holmes relationship really opened up the eyes of the people who still thought Cruise was straight, and convinced them that he is gay, especially that stupid, contrived Oprah appearance.
No other major actor has had gay rumors this persistent and long-lasting, though I guess people are starting to wonder about Clooney.
Middle America got it 15 years ago. You can't be an entire episode of South Park without everyone in on the joke.
Mimi Rogers didn't get any because Tom was considering becoming a monk - now that's funny (from r17's link).
What about 100% gay Miscavige and Davis?
"Maybe if he sufferes some shock, like Katie getting full custody of Suri, he will look inside himself. He is definitely not at peace."
If a narcissist suffers a shock, or isn't at peace, he doesn't look inwards. He suffers intense rage, and looks outwards for others to blame and punish! Katie you in danger, girl!
If Tom is capable of a normal human emotion like anger, of course.
Exactly R21. However, I believe Cruise is beyond narcissism because he's not only totally lost touch with who he is, he's lost touch with what it is to be human.
He's a robot, programmed to take orders. He will be whatever it is tptb want him to be, want him to do.
His meat suit is the only thing left of Tom Cruise. In other words, he's dead.
I see a vast difference between John Travolta and Tom Cruise. Travolta has been outed time and time again. Has Tom Cruise ever been outed? With Travolta we know all about his hookups, can the same be said for Cruise?
I'm not straight, but haven't encountered any compelling evidence so far to suggest that he is gay. Crazy yes, gay no. He doesn't ping to me either. Why are y'all so sure that he's gay? What are the stories about him?
How could you have missed the story about his auditions for the third wife at the SciFi building in L.A.? Did you not read about his first wife's complaints about no sex? Have you skipped all the stories about him shooting blanks when he can manage to get it up? Did you miss the story about his wrestler boytoy? Do you realize that his children with wife #2 were adopted?
Not to mention the Cream of Wheat.
The audition thing - yes, but never read what Scarlett Johansson had to say. Anyways, that to me is more an indication of an extreme need for control and perfectionism. The first wife's complaints - true, I had forgotten about that. Shooting blanks - what does that have to do with being gay? Wrestler boy toy - no, I didn't know about that. Adopted children - yes, but so are half of the children of Hollywood, it seems.
He might have a case of the gay, but not an overly obvious one like John Travolta.
I know a few people, mainly older, who think he's straight and his marriages genuine. They were in total shock over learning of the Hollywood tradition of bearding and arranged marriages. You'd think they would realize it since they lived through the Hollywood studio era.
A couple of straight guys at that sports board actually brought up Will Smith and Hugh Jackman as probably gay. I found that interesting.
[quote]Did you not read about his first wife's complaints about no sex? Have you skipped all the stories about him shooting blanks when he can manage to get it up?
Yeah cause there are no straight men that don't want sex with their wives. Of course if you're medically impotent and want kids and that can make you shoot blanks.
FUCK YOUR MOMMA with the LA Raiders.
Most people and commentators here in the UK think and say that Katie has "escaped" from Cruise - what does that say about him to the general public? They all know what a creepy control freak he is.
One BI among the recent bonanza said the final impetus for divorce was the discovery of two men in a bed, superstar actor plus famous athlete. Slash-fictional, but not quite out of the question. Beckham's take on the split would be interesting.
If the split spills the gay, Cruise will be seen to have perjured himself in a UK court. That's where he sued and won against an insinuating tabloid.
Straight people know, except for the ignorant fucks who are mired in crushing on the cute little star they first saw in the 1980s, their Tommy.
One would hope so, r32.
I am surprised how kind most straights are to put Tom Cruise in the creepy crazy looney bin than call him gay.
The public has long assumed that Tom Cruise is gay. And Cruise does nothing but add fuel to the fire by constantly threatening to sue anyone who calls him gay. If he was straight, wouldn't he just brush off those rumors as ridiculous?
Straights in flyover states are learning just how creepy Scientology really is in detail. That weird "religion" overshadows TC's sexuality issues. He never was much of an object of true lust and envy or a real romantic lead, a la Pierce Brosnan, of the same time period.
From the time he split with Kidman, the public has figured that he's gay.
[quote]That weird "religion" overshadows TC's sexuality issues.
I think you may be right.
You forgot the little gay porn actor who had a nervous breakdown after getting legally crushed for revealing that he had an affair with Tom. That explains the lack of gay rumors since then.
And then there's the alleged gay sex tape...
Oh, and then there's the book (available on Amazon, ha!).
I don't know if he's gay (although I very much suspect that he is) but what I know for sure is that something is very wrong with him mentally - that's accepted. Something is also very wrong with his sexuality too. Could be that all his issues are rooted in his refusal to accept his homosexuality. I don't know but it's obvious he needs a lot of therapy which I doubt will help at his age.
The younger generation certainly things he is gay. I have a teenage relative on facebook and I'm often surprised by how similar her celebrity conversations with her friends are to Datalounge. (They think Gyllenhaal is gay and that Taylor Swift beards.)
I think in some areas, people may be catching on. I remember reading about a year or two ago, I think in the New Yorker, how straight guys are toning down the anti gay talk because they noticed the most vocal homophobes are eventually revealed as gay. Plus, especially for the younger ones, their girlfriends are much more accepting of gay people so they dont want to turn them off. If they happen to catch wind of Cruise's homophobia and how he reacts when anyone hints he may be gay, they may grow suspicious. But as someone posted above, his creepy religion may be more troubling to them than him being gay.
I'm a straight person who thinks he probably is straight but wouldn't be surprised if he is gay. He has become such a turn off in every way that I don't really care what he is. He seems like a total jerk and weirdo. Also, for the poster who said he was asexual because he has no sex appeal? Most people on this earth have no sex appeal. Doesn't mean they don't have sex.
R8 what the hell does that have to do with Tom Cruise?
