Now that he's going to do a television, it seems to me impossible that even he could ever say to himself that coming out would damage his career. There are plenty of out younger men on TV whose careers have not suffered (Sean Hayes, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, NPH, Matt Bomer).
And he's going to be 53 in just a few weeks. Surely he cannot be so deluded as to think that at this age his coming out would cut him out of young heterosexual heartthrob roles.
Yeah that would be totally deluded!
A massage therapist will come out with a story in 3... 2...
Kevin Spacey will not come out because in 1999 he said he was not gay. If he comes out now he will probably be accused of being a liar. So he will stay in.
Who cares? I hope he doesn't, we could do well without his kind, thank you very much.
I've always thought he was a no talent hack that probably sexed his way to the middle...so to speak.
"Now that he's going to do a television..."
I always knew that old perv was into Kink.
It's so pathetic when obvious old queens finally crawl out of the closet. Lookin' at you, Dr. Kildare.
Tony and I were the Chase Crawford & Ed Westwick ,of our day. But we couldn't come out - it was a different era.
I think for the most part he has been concerned how it would affect his career. Remember 1999 was the year of american beauty and im sure he didnt want hurt the film or his oscar chances by coming out. Meanwhile after two oscars and a tony he has accomplished everything as an actor and at this point and his age it wouldnt hurt him i believe. His best parts are probably behind him.
He'll never come out because absolutely hideous stories of him stalking and harrassing co-stars in plays and films will come out, too.
He doesn't have a Tony.
He is another one, like Queen Latifah, who has said he will never come out publicly . Period. So don't expect that anytime soon. I respect that. But I didn't respect him lying, saying he was straight. I just hope he never tries to bring his personal assisstant to a function , and pass her off as his fiancee - as he did the year he won the Oscar, for "Usual Suspects". I'm sure he'll continue his 'walks in the park' meanwhile.
R12 He won one in 91 for lost in yonkers
r12 Research before you tard out.
He outed himself with that "I was mugged for my cell phone" story.
Will Kevin Spacey ever come out?
(laughs manically for 45 minutes)
Hoo, boy. Thank you. That was the best laugh I've had all day.
[quote] He doesn't have a Tony.
Not since he stopped paying me.
[quote]His best parts are probably behind him.
Oooh, truer words never spoken, honey! And you can lick those best parts once I drop my pants!
Well R11, this Datatlounge! We don't have to wait for him to come out to hear stories of him stalking and harassing his co-stars. Spill!
Is his mom still alive? Something tells me when she passes he'll come out.
Probably not. He'll be running the Old Vic for a few more years, then wants to return to more film work. Glass closet maintained.
[quote]He outed himself with that "I was mugged for my cell phone" story.
And those photos of him playing grabby hands with Eurotrash ass.
If Sissy Spacek married Kevin Spacey she'd be Sissy Spacey.
The Ghosts of Rowan and Martin
R5 has it right. Spacey has lied about his sexual orientation so often and so vehemently that he can never, ever come out.
R20, he sexually harrassed Rupert Graves when they were in The Iceman Cometh in London. Spacey had a fixation on Graves ever since he saw him in Maurice, apparently, and HAD TO HAVE HIM. Poor Rupert declined the chance to go to Broadway with the show and Robert Sean Leonard was his replacement.
Has anyone ever met and/or worked with Kevin Spacey? If so, what is he like?
Really, r32? I would think Rupert Graves would be a little long in the tooth for Spacey.
RE:Tony. My bad, I was thinking of when he expected to win for Iceman. I didn't even know he was when Yokers was done. He might be able to do the Irne Worth role now.
I don't mean to hijack this thread, but what does it mean when your boyfriend won't have sex with you...and he lives thousands of miles away...and he hasn't returned a call in ten years?
[quote]Has anyone ever met and/or worked with Kevin Spacey? If so, what is he like?
I have several friends who've worked with him. He likes twinks and openly chases them even if he doesn't know for sure if they're gay. Quel shock, I know...
He's putting the finishing touches on his coming-out email, OP. He said to check your inbox in the morning.
Why should he come out? For that matter, why should any gay actor come out when/if they do so they are derided, laughed at and critized, by their own gay community? Don't you guys know how bitchy and mean you are? It's very sad because, while there are a few sensitive and intelligent gay men out there, for the most part, the gay community is full of self-loathing and hence project that loathing onto anyone else they can . . and, more than sick, they project that loathing on to their own kind. If we want the same rights as the straight world, then we have to stop acting in that all-too-true stereotypical manner.
I know him. He's actually very nice looking, looks much younger in person, and very masculine. Friendly personality, too. He's also very straight, unfortunately. He laughs at all these gay rumors, and doesn't mind them, because it actually helps him pick up chicks (keeps them off guard). He gets LOTS of girls, but he keeps it low profile.
RE 40 = Bill Clinton, Kev's 'great friend'. Do you think, when they're on Ron Burkle's private jet ,on their way to some Sudanese conference, in Dubai, Kev tries to act all straight, and when Bill's thumbing through Playboy, or Hustler, and says " Ooh, theres a nice little piece", Kev pipes up with " Oh yes Mr. President. That certainly is a beautiful pair of tits, and a lucious little snatch. Makes me horny just looking at that " to appear like one of the guys ?
RE 41: No! Bill Clinton is friends with Kevin Spacey because Bill knows that with Kevin around Bill can have all the girls to himself.
His pussy is OVER the HILL
Anyone else think it's ironic that Spacey's Oscar winning role in "American Beauty" was a straight, teen-loving letch - when in reality ,Spacey is really like the gay, teen-loving letch the neighbor, Chris Cooper, thought he was - which is why he kills him ?
[quote]My bad, I was thinking of when he expected to win for Iceman. I didn't even know he was when Yokers was done. He might be able to do the Irne Worth role now[/quote]
How many times do I have to go over this:
[quote]It's not that I want to create some bullshit mystique by maintaining a silence about my personal life, it is just that the less you know about me, the easier it is to convince you that I am that character on screen. It allows an audience to come into a movie theatre and believe I am that person.
Yeah - I forget everytime I see that pic, from some restaurant in Prague, where you're surrounded by twink porn actors, and your pulling the pants off one, to spank him. I think 'Ill forget about this, next time I watch "L.A. Confidential"......Not.
His acting made Bobby Darin seem like a prissy queen.
I love that Kevin Spacey is running a theater named for an old queen.
R40's post is hilarious!
Whatever happened to his brother Randy's book? In previous interviews, his brother called him a lying weirdo. Did Kevin's lawyer stop this book or is no one interested?
He'll never come out... but then again I said that about A. Cooper, too.
In 2000 Kevin said he did want to marry his girlfriend Dianne. However, those "Male Romp" rock climbing pictures came out. Dianne broke up with Kevin soon afterward.
Perez Hilton said that Anderson Cooper and Kevin Spacey should come out. Anderson did and Kevin did not. Will there be even more pressure for Kevin and other stars to come out now?
The National Enquirer
Well July 26th has come and gone with Kevin turning 53. So WEHT his career? And, since other posts are talking about Janet Jackson's financial status, how much is Kevin worth?
Bobby Darin's Royalties
I think he was telling the truth when he said he's not gay since I know from a few reliable sources women he's been with. However, I know that he has also been with men.
So technically speaking he's not gay but bi. It would be interesting to see how a more well-regarded actor would fair if they come out as bi.
Bi actresses continue to do ok...
Bow Wow outed again. This should have its own thread.
A shitty Netflix show is not exactly a television show. He is so sad and ugly.
The first time I ever saw or heard of him was in an episode on LA Law. I thought he was great.
What was that movie where he moves to some remote fishing village in Canada and finds himself?
He figures that if he comes out he will no longer be considered for romantic leading man roles. He points to Richard Chamberlain who has not had a romantic lead since he came out.
This is what Margaret 'outing Travolta is like outing Liberace' Cho said about Spacey:
No. I’m really slutty when it comes to MySpace, I’ll be friends with everybody.
Perez Hilton says on his blog that Kevin Spacey is slowing inching out of the closet. How do you feel about that?
That’s cute! How is he inching out?
He told Gotham magazine, “I’m living my life how I choose, in no way am I hiding or am I terrified. I’m having the time of my life living my life.”
Good! What if he was straight, though? Wouldn’t that be wild? It’s like Olivia Newton John. For years everybody was talking about how she was a lesbian, and then I met her and she was so hetero. It was the headband she wore all through the 80s that made people think she liked women.
It’s not like she played tennis, though.
No, but she did sort of have the wristband and white tennis outfit in the ‘Physical’ video. She did kind of have that minty lesbian quality.
So whats her deal???? Is she being paid to out and in celebrities?? Are high up scientoligists trying to ruin Travolta???
He won't come out because he can't face all the jokes that will follow about his "I love you Dianne" speech.
[quote]coming out would cut him out of young heterosexual heartthrob roles
When was Kevin Spacey ever cast in heterosexual heartthrob roles?
Is he a top?
I've heard he is R65
The quintessential imdb is he gay or not thread on his profile is very interesting. His tastes vary from younger guys to married women.
So yeah to answer OP no he's not gonna come out now. Or ever.
Shall we guess who his date to the Emmys will be?
He's gonna bring a young asian guy and Sting's wife.
