Zach Quinto's career in spite of coming out has been impressive, I will admit. Besides Star Trek and AHS, he had one of the most critically acclaimed acting performances of the theater season that will result in a move to Broadway and more likely than not, a Tony next year.
However, he is not, nor has he ever been what could be remotely described as sexy or hot. He is the antithesis of sexy. It's why he plays psychopaths, murderers, emotionless aliens, and immature sons who still live with their mentally defective mothers and sisters.
Zachary Quinto: boldly going where other actors fear to
It is no small matter to take on a role as iconic to a world of fans as Spock in the new Star Trek movies. But Zachary Quinto – one of Hollywood's few openly gay film stars – is a forceful presence, with clear ideas of where he'd like his work to lead
(Full interview at link)
a proof that out gay man is million times hotter than a closeted queen!
r5 = Luke Evans
R3, I could not agree with you less. He's way hot.
I disagree strongly with R3 as well.
I saw that pic and the only thing I could think of was the desire to run my hand up under his shirt.
I disagree with R3 too! ZQ is extremely sexy. I've found him attractive since I saw him on Heroes season 1 and back then I wasn't even aware he was gay.
I hope the hotel makes him pay for cleaning that cushion that's being abused by the grease slick on his head.
I don't find him sexy or attractive at all. But he is a good actor.
R3 I'm not sure if his career is really that impressive in spite of coming out. I mean, it does look impressive, but it's not a proof that coming out doesn't have an impact on actors' careers anymore (I guess that's what you meant). He has signed for Star Trek and AHS before coming out (also AHS is Ryan Murphy's show, so no big surprises here). As for theatre, it was always easier for gay actors to find work on stage than on TV and movies, so also no big surprise. We will have to wait and see how his career will look after that. Hopefully good.
What is "AHS"?
R12 American Horror Story. Its a show.
R12 AHS = American Horror Story
Sorry, just never heard it called that. I know the show.
He is a quintessential example of famous = hot in some people's eyes.
The eyebrow situation alone....
ZQ will be the first openly out star to successfully play conventional romantic leads. He is not not hot - I would describe it more eloquently but words are failing me right now.
There is something he is hiding behind the pillow in his left hand. Can't stop thinking till solved.
r16 Eyebrows can be fixed. Hotness cannot be taught.
So why doesn't he fix them? I can't stand to look at those caterpillars crawling above his eyes.
[quote]ZQ will be the first openly out star to successfully play conventional romantic leads
No, and he wouldn't have been getting conventional romantic leads (at least in films) even if he was straight or in the closet. He is not romantic leading man material.
He's been smart to start producing. He'll be a solid character actor in the Stanley Tucci vein.
R20 is most probably right.
I should add that there is nothing wrong with that and I suspect he'll have a long, fabulous career before the delusional ZQ fans pounce.
r22 Don't you mean after they pounce?
Quinto is a sensationally good actor. I'm not sure that he needs to be relegated to "character" status. He has a marvelous voice and uses it well and almost never comes across as nelly. His work on AHS was dynamite, and I'm sorry he won't be returning this coming season. I'm looking forward to his work with Cherry Jones in Glass Menagerie, though.
Physically he is hot and appeals to both men and women. I love that he is out and have a good career. But his creative insight, big words, pretentious talking and attitude kinda leave me meh.
r24 Does he play the brother or the visitor? Who plays the sister? Does sound incredible.
R24 is delusional.
Somehow, R25, it doesn't surprise me that someone left "kind of meh" would dislike an actor for using "big words."
You big, fat DUMBASS.
Brother. Sister is Celia Keenan-Bolger, gentleman caller is Brian J. Smith (is he gay?). Extraordinary production which deserves mutiple Tony Awards in 2014.
I'm sure you're not skinny yourself, r28...how rude!!
R16 is right. When someone is famous, some people automatically consider them hot. If that person looked exactly the same and was unknown, the same people wouldn't even notice him.
R20 is also right. Even if Zach was straight, he would never be a conventional romantic lead. The fact that he is gay complicates it even more.
Zach Quinto is hot to me, but the proof oh his appeal is in his Twitter and Instagram feeds - hundreds, thousands of men and women telling him how gorgeous/perfect/ he is and how they want to fuck/marry him.
I want to bear his children!
He seems like he might be too hairy if you got close. Any shirtless/nudes?
Has Qunto gotten one job outside of theater since he came out?
You say that like it's a bad thing [R43].
I don't think he's hot but I still want to have dirty, dirty sex with him. Make of that what you will.
Yeah, he sure is unattractive with his shirt off, R43.
I would not mind it if he woke up and found my ass on his dick.
Yeah, R51, but how would he feel?
How would his boyfriend feel?
The Voice of the Night
Thank you Voice. While it's natural to acknowledge someone's charisma it is a top 10 sin to covet, so some of you might want to keep a lid on it.
I think he is handsome, but not "unconventionally handsome." Seems a basic kind of regular handsome to me!
What's in his left hand? What's he hiding? A dildo? A bottle of lube? An invite to a Brian Singer pool party? I want to know!

I'm sure there are plenty of us who'd like to be spitroasted by Zach and Jon, so no harm, no foul.
I don't know, maybe I put on my prissy hat this morning.
The Voice of the Night
Spitroasted by Jon?! HA!?
Are Zac and Jon still together? Funny, there haven't been any paparazzi dog shoots for a long, long time. I hope so...
They're still together: seen/photographed together in Boston while Zach was doing The Glass Menagerie.
Who is the other guy in r47?
Quinto will be on Jimmy Fallon's show Wednesday, May 8th.
THEY ARE NOT
[quote]Has Qunto gotten one job outside of theater since he came out?
What about American Horror Story...Didn't he got that post-coming out?
He is also in some movie called "The Invitation"
R64 When did they break up?
Every celebrity gets that r41.
For every disgusting Luke Evans there's luckily a fantastic Zachary Quinto.
Why would anyone want to be a romantic leading man anyway? It's such a road to nowhere. It's hardly the pinnacle of an actor's career. A leading man carries the drama which Quinto can most certainly do. Who cares about rom coms?
Even McBongo got out of Rom Coms. He was kind of becoming a joke. But this year he turned it around with a bunch of interesting performances.
He has chosen a very odd color palette for that room.
Zachary ain't hot no alibi
A beautiful man inside and out.(I sound like a fangurl)
R65 American Horror Story is by Ryan Murphy, who gives job to every gay actor that is out there (and I applaud him for it). But because of it it's certainly not an indication if coming out had or didn't have an impact on someone career.
I'm so sad that Zachary is such a failure. It really doesn't get better, does it? Lost boyfriends, charity tv projects, even Paramount knew there would be hell to pay if they recast a more virile Spock. I just hate the whole goddamned world.
R79 must be luke evans. Such a jealous bitch.
I think he's hot and charming and a great role model.
He's not been in any movies except Star Trek, though, has he? (Besides cameos and things where he cast himself.)
Plaid check shirts make dudes look more masculine. more dudes should wear them.
