Which one of the following 10 oft-rumored to be gay actors should come out first?
I no longer believe Jake Gyllenhaal is gay
Zac Efron - not gay
Colton Haynes - probably gay, but doubtful he'll come out.
Taylor Lautner - I assumed he was gay, but kept reading bis that in-ed him, maybe he isn't gay.
Hayden Christensen -not gay.
Andrew Garfield - not gay, maybe nni.
Kellan Lutz - not gay,could have been gay 4 pay though.
Robert Pattinson - def not gay.
Chace Crawford - not gay
Leonardo DiCaprio - nit gay, maybe had a bi past.
Jake Gyllenhaal - def not gay.
How do you know that Leo's possible bi tendencies are a thing of the past, I wonder? Is it our steadfast believe in blind items?
All of them.
It's funny how almost all name actors are straight, what with the stereotype about actors and all. Does someone weed the gay ones out early?
Jake is not gay....
I agree with r3. I think Colton will come out eventually though
Taylor Lautner is bisexual. And, I suspect that the other Taylor (John Carter) is gay, after watching his interview...Legs crossed, claiming that he doesn't have a gf, because he's married to his career. Taylor seemed really uncomfortable when asked that question on The View.
The Colton pictures were just publicity shots, that was not his bf. I firmly believe he's straight, because he doesn't act gay at all.
R10, you got to be kidding me? Colton is gay, hun.. sorry to disappoint.
Can someone tell me when we found out Hayden, Taylor and Leo were all straight? Hell.. I can understand Leo being straight.. but Taylor and Hayden? REALLY?!?! they're both so queeny, and sorry, but I don't believe Hayden's relationship with Rachel Bilson at all. It just seems incredibly fake. I think she's his long term beard.
R10 is probably just trolling, r11.
He "doesn't act gay at all."
I love the self-loathing posters the best.
[quote]I firmly believe he's straight, because he doesn't act gay at all.
Your brilliance is astounding. We're so lucky to have you posting here.
No one cares about any of those interchangeable Hollywood himbos. Every one EXCEPT DiCaprio will be gone in a few years. He has had staying power for a much longer time.
Chace Crawford not gay? Does his boyfriend know?
The NY Observer pretty much outed Chace last week.
Haynes is definitely gay and there is proof. And only someone blind and deaf would believe that Lautner is not gay. All of the guys on this list have at least had a blow job from a guy and put out on the casting couch which for most Americans woukd mean that they were gay.
Someone's who's star is waning, they might come out in desperation he'll have a career like Bomer.
What did the NY Observer say about Chace? He is a former roommate of Taylor Kitsch's (John Carter), btw.
[quote]Does someone weed the gay ones out early?
You were likely being sarcastic, but yes, studios and publicists and casting agents do indeed shy away from the "obviously gay" actors for any significant roles. I've been told by a number of agents that they segregate their own clients this way, too, just as they would for any other "type." It's pathetic. And forget butch women - there's no place at all for them in front of the cameras in Hollywood, unless they sneak in with child stardom and butch out post-fame, a la KStew.
Leo is gay, I got this from a family member (I can't define it more you will just have to trust me) 4 years ago and have posted it here before.
Well, Taylor Lautner was not weeded out.
I believe you, r24. I knew for sure he was gay when Gisele Bundchen, in a Vanity Fair Magazine article after thier "break-up" spoke of him fondly but in terms that were saturated in careful ambiguity.
It was obvious from reading between the lines that they traveled in the same circles and perhaps were close friends and both got something out of being photographed together, namely, the publicity that being a "couple" gave them.
OP, your poll is bullshit, because the actors most overdue to come out are all well over 30. Based on career longevity alone (35-plus years in the business), I'd say Travolta is most overdue. If we're talking "glass closet" types, I'd vote for Kevin Spacey.
I second Travolta.
Benjamin Bratt r19? Really? Details!
I also think Leonardo is gay, R24. I got this impression when I first saw The Basketball Diaries when I was 14.
Did Antonio Sabato Jr. ever officially come out?
I think I might remember you R24. Are you the one who talked to Lukas Haas' mother? So you'd call her Leo's family member? Ah, I'm just more of a curious than a trustful person.
Colton has the most evidence that he's gay. He really should just come out. Anyone with the ability to do a quick google search would know he's gay, so what difference does it make?
Chace Crawford should come out after Gossip Girl is cancelled because that boy is finished anyway once the show is toast.
[quote]Well, Taylor Lautner was not weeded out.
Sneaked in as a child star, like the aforementioned Kristen Stewart.
Is R3 serious?!
Does he really think all the people he listed are not gay?
R9 Don't you think that in the year 2012, talk shows would know better than to ask a young, handsome actor if he has a girlfriend? How presumptous of them to think that way....mindboggling...
Also, I read a story several years ago where Richard Burton said that he was a bisexual and that all actors are at minimal, bisexual. I have always viewed actors with that in mind so when someone comes out as gay, it never surprises me in the least.
R27, this is a poll of younger, good-looking actors - not middle-aged, unattractive guys.
Another vote for Travolta.
Ugh r30. You can't determine someone is gay based on how they look in a movie. Geeez
Not saying that you're lying R24, but do you post here only when someone mentions Leo Di Caprio, because you keep posting the same story over and over again, it's kinda tiring.
Leo is probably bi.
And when was that, R43?
Isn't he already out, R42?
John C. Reilly
Charles Nelson Reilly
Come on though R46, how many people always post the same shit on a given topic and it's the insider gossip that tires you the most?
Waiting also for more on Benjamin Bratt.
Doubt Bratt. Pissy straight type.
Leo sooo gay in Quick
R55, do you mean "The Quick and the Dead"? The western movie that Leo did with Hackman and Stone back in the 90's?
You left off Jeremy Renner, who actually is gay and pretty much out in his every day life.
Also, Luke Evans, who had had some increasingly high profile roles in recent years. Gay, but now back in the closet.
Wenthworth Miller. Seriously.
R45 Is that her holiday card photo?
You're an idiot OP. This whole poll is just wishful thinking on your part.
John Travolta is the obvious winner - hands down.
Our friend Zac went to a Halloween party (1) with "a male pal" (2) dressed as Jake and Heath in Brokeback and (3) let his PR team either leak it to or allow it to be printed in Page Six. Tell me that's not one foot out of the glass closet.
Well, Leo just quit his most recent Victoria's Secret model. They dated for a year, and then he was spotted out bowling with Lukas Haas and a few people from the movie he's shooting in NYC. According to the NYPost he was "actung playful" and in good spirits.
Leo=notgay. No, Really
Zac Efron is definitely gay. He's out to the people he works with but who the hell knows if/when he'll come out publicly? He's young, he wants a career as a romantic lead. We'll see.
Travolta and Spacey, no contest.
They've been around so long, and been so half-hearted about the closet that everyone who takes an interest in them knows how gay they are. There is absolutely no reason for them to stay closeted.
OP, I thought you said you had a list of G-A-Y actors. Am I missing something?
OP definitely chose the biggest closet cases. Not one straight guy on that list.
I would like Andrew Garfield to come out, because I think the closet is hurting him more than the others.
R45 oh yes
i saw the film and she seems like she has an iron pussy like a guillotine. you go down on her and you will lose your head.
good luck to the tongue that charts those waters...
What's the t on Andrew Garfield? He's the only one on that list that doesn't ping for me and I've never heard any gay rumors about him. Is there some gossip I've missed out on?
Do people like Spacey stay closeted for themselves and their own careers, or more for the careers of the people around them? like managers, agents, publicists who feel they stand to lose major $$ if their clients come out...which is ironic considering how many of them live comfortably out of the closet (I'm looking at you Stephen Huvane...)
I've posted this before. Zac is definitely not gay. Trust me, I know him.
Yes, John Travolta owns this thread.
If you don't realize at least that Chace Crawford is gay, then your gay-dar is beyond repair.
r70, there are so many unsavory stories about Spacey, that I think he hasn't come out because he doesn't want any attention on his sexual life.
In addition to DL, even mainstream sites like Deadline have mentioned it, although they phrase it differently there.
He is the only Hollywood person I've read about whose public rumour mill is worse than Michael Bay's, and that's saying a lot.
As misogynistic & sleazy as he is, I've never heard rumours of Bay getting physical or aggressive or worse with the jailbait.
Not that I approve of screwing 16 year olds, but you know what I mean.
[quote]Zac Efron is definitely gay. He's out to the people he works with
How do you know this?
R64, Zac is making a mistake trying to be a romantic lead. That is pigeon holing yourself and chopping off at least 15-20 years off of your career.
He should go for being a character actor. As soon as a cuter flavor of the month comes along is "romantic" appeal will fade anyway.
If he leaves the stupid vapid romantic comedies or melodramas behind and picks quirky challenging roles, he'll have a long memorable career. He is not a bad actor unlike Chace Crawford.
I really don't mind if guys are in lame shomances to help tabloid editors sell magazines to middle America, but I hate how gay actors like Renner are so ADAMANTLY opposed to anyone even THINKING of him being gay. James Franco, as much as I loathe, probably dealt with the gay question the best of any actor. I
If you've seen Liberal Arts, r75, that does seem to be the direction he's heading in -- I didn't even realize it was him in the movie, and you couldn't find a much smaller, lower-budget movie to mess around in.
How do you know Renner is gay? It's not like he lives with a guy. Maybe he just likes to flip houses and having a partner is advantageous in doing that.
I'm not sure all of them are gay. A few of them are too young for me to think of them as overdue to come out.
John Travolta and Kevin Spacey are so long overdue to come out that they seem firmly planted in their transparent closets.
All straight, Op. Big Bush supporters all of em.
Keanu Reeves. He hasn't had a blockbuster in almost a decade.
r80 Cavill has bigger problems than the closet.
I agree with you. Henry's problem is his lack of acting talent.
gave Zac blowjob last week at Hollywood party he wanted me to fuck him but I was working the party
Any other details you'd like to share? (eg. description of Zac's cock).
Orlando being married and having a child rules him out???!
I'm not saying it rules him out, but it makes him different than most of the other guys on the list. The other guys on the list are still single, unmarried & without children.
So if Orlando is gay, he's certainly been willing to go a lot further than the others to cover it up, and appears to have had sex with a woman.
r90...Travolta is not single. Clooney has been married. Tom Cruise has been married 3 times....but cant make it work. Rock Hudson was married for that matter. Justin Timberlake just got married.
I think it's called bi-curious.
R90...Laurence Olivier was married and supposedly in an affair with Danny Kaye...and not his first. Reverend Ted Haggard is still married with kids and GAY as a bluebird in a Judy garland musical produced by Vincent MInnell! And what about Reverend Long who paid off those boys? Still married. And governor McGreevy who was married and then finally came out.
But with Travolta we've actually seen evidence of his involvement with men.
Has there any been any evidence or photos of Orlando making out with men?
What do we base the Orlando is gay storyline on other than he is cute?
r98..I haven't seen photos of you with men but I don't question your gay. So what now ...you want evidence of gayness? Its called gayer and they ping off the charts with their gay face too.
R99, do you think Orlando is gay, though?
I believe Taylor Lautner is gay, and probably Andrew Garfield, Kellan Lutz, Colton Haynes and maybe Hayden Christensen.
But unlike the other guys, Orlando has never really pinged to me and I've never seem him snuggling up with guys the way I have with some of the others.
Just want to see some more info on him.
So was Oscar Wilde, r88.
Yes, r102, but what evidence is there that Orlando Bloom is gay?
Not a great actor but Ian Somerhalder
Twinkie eater Kevin Spacey! He likes 'em young!
Oscar Wilde was bisexual, r102.
Does James Franco even care anymore?
Travolta, obviously, but since he's hanging on to his lies by the skin of his teeth, maybe Hayden Christensen. His career is dead, he's never going to be a romantic leading man. He should try just being himself.
Seann William Scott is another who shouldn't bother.
The OP's poll is more of a hottie wish list. The more obvious choices, like Travolta and Spacey, were left off because they're ugly old toads now.
More more. Benjamin Bratt? Whut?
If the one who played Magnum is family, then he should come out.
Wilde might've been bi r107, but being married with kids was no proof of it, because there was no such thing as "out and proud" at the time. Gays didn't have any other option but to be closeted and married. And there are still plenty of married gay men on the down-low to this day. You sound like a frau not to get that simple point.
Who cares about Oscar Wilde coming out. He's been dead for what? A hundred years? It's a bit late for him to come out. He's dust now.
Lee Pace is the more obvious choice than any of the guys on OP's list.
Christopher Meloni--sooner or later he is going to come bursting through the closet door gasping for gay air!
[quote]So if Orlando is gay, he's certainly been willing to go a lot further than the others to cover it up, and appears to have had sex with a woman.
R90, John Gacy had sex with a woman & had a biological child. So have millions of other gay guys.
I disagree with you. He's back in the closet, obliging his Breaking dawn 2 silly fangurls.
I totally agree that a number of these guys are "bi" but possibly lean gay, which makes it complicated.
David Sutcliffe is a textbook case. He aggressively pursues women, particularly the centerfold type. His ex-bunnie ex-wife insists he's not gay but not straight. He gets turned on by guys, has sex with then (with limits) but at 43 still sees it as a lifestyle not his and can't reconcile it with his straight image. He insists he's straight but interested in gay sex. Deep in therapy and fucked up
r121, he's not out?
Travolta (but he'd probably come out except for the church).
Then Hugh Jackman, who starts talking nonstop to coverup.
Didn't someone who claimed they spoke with family of Leo Dicap, claim he was gay...? What about Toby Maguire? What's his deal?
There was a lot of blind items supposed to be about Orlando Bloom, Ted Casablanca as well use to always wink at his relationship with the model Miranda Kerr as a mutual benefit club, in the way it would help her career. A beard.
Google Cannes Film Festival, 2004, I believe, R101.
When the movie Troy came out.
"Overdue" meaning we've known forever and he never has or "overdue" meaning he's perhaps likely to do it but still hasn't?
They are two very different questions.
Well it seems Orlando might be having marriage difficulties if the grapevine/press machine is anything to go by. Lots of strange conflicting stories in the British press that run alongside blind items about infidelity, and not him.
Whether it's true I don't know. May all be bs.
R1 has it.
I have NO idea who most of these names are.
Elijah Wood is NOT gay. He's had girlfriends all along.
The scientolofreaks will take their secrets to the grave, then the church will publish the true stories and make a fortune. With all the stories of Spacey's evil antics I'm surprised there's never been a big expose. I'm sure there's a very high occurrance of bisexuality among beautiful young people in any sort of creative business, but I'm sure many of them settle into a normal sort of life of at least near monogomy. Don't most of us do this as we age? Not everyone, but most.
David Sutcliffe's in therapy, r124? Why?
I'm kinda surprised by the poll.. it's all younger gays. I think it's more likely that an older gay comes out, like Kevin Spacey or someone else in the glass closet.
The closet has made him look terrible.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
