It'll be interesting if he becomes established as a leading man. The UK press won't keep quiet about it once he's big enough fame-wise.
Now you've done it. If DL believes the closet would help them lose weight, they will all do it.
Does not matter who is playing The Crow, a remake is a bad idea.
Who is his agent? He was nowhere and now he's everywhere.
Who keeps trying to make these British closet cases Hollywood stars?
The Crow? Really? This is a movie that doesn't need to happen.
[quote]Who keeps trying to make these British closet cases Hollywood stars?
British? huh? I thought he was Chris Evans' brother?...I'm so confused.
r8, SCOTT Evans is Chris Evans' gay brother. LUKE Evans is a British actor who, when he was starting out in the early 2000s in the Boy George musical "Taboo" was openly gay, and continued to be so until Hollywood came calling about 3 years ago and he rather embarrassingly attempted to go back into the closet.
how do you go back in? Isn't that like being a born again virgin?
[quote]I love this man!
You love people who go back into the closet and make it look like being gay is something to be ashamed of???
Wow, you're pathetic.
That's not true, r14. He's not ready to come out yet.
He's a coward and a liar.
Was that youtube video of him at the Boy George play yanked? That beggars belief. I'd love to get a hold of his voice coach.
Anyway, look at this. If he had longer hair like he had before the resemblance would be clearer. I'm team McAvoy all the way in this Celtic thespian battle.
[quote] He's not ready to come out yet.
Umm, he came out, quite loudly and proudly, in an interview with the Advocate about a decade ago. He even boldly proclaimed that he'd never let anyone force him to hide his sexuality. Now, he (or his PR people) want us to pretend that the interview never happened, even though it can easily be found with a simple Google search.
OP why did you say black was slimming? Do you think Luke is fat? Cause he has a pretty hot body, IMO.
He's actually a lovely guy. I was an extra on a film of his and he was friendly to everyone, chatted to me and my small group until it was time to film.
He deserves all his success.
R20 = Luke
Well, he must be a great guy, because great things are happening for him.
When I heard he got the lead role in the Crow, I thought someone got it mixed up, because he just got a lead role in the new monster series movies in which he'll play Dracula. (I forgot whom Tom Cruise is playing)
Anyway, I happened to be watching a movie he was in, Blitz. Man, if he can just stay looking like that.
[quote]OP why did you say black was slimming? Do you think Luke is fat? Cause he has a pretty hot body, IMO.[/quote]
I was wondering the same thing, because he's far from fat. He needs fat. Luckily, the last photo I saw of Luke, he appears to have picked up some pounds and is growing out his hair, which was super short.
I sure hope that photo was not just an illusion, because he was getting pretty skin and bones.
r10 we had a great thread here last year about the whole thing. Annoying, hilarious and unbelievable.
A great read.
[quote]Well, he must be a great guy, because great things are happening for him.
Yes, because only great guys have great things happen to them.
[quote]I guess he's getting paid and doing it his way.
Gays like you are a disgrace. You'll cheer on some ugly closet case who now denies that he's gay for the sake of fame and fortune, yet you'll criticize and put down successful out gay actors like Matt Bomer and NPH.
Oh, I stand corrected - R22/R23/R26 isn't a gay man; that's the fangurl that comes on DL almost every day around this time to post in threads about Luke Evans and Henry Cavill.
Run along back to Oh No They Didn't! and Just Jared now sweetheart.
This bitch. I never thought I would say it, but I think I have more respect for the actor who never comes out in the first place than I do for someone who came out, loudly proclaimed that he'd never closet himself for something as base as money, and then went and closeted himself for money.
It's true that the ones who don't come out aren't helping the cause by staying invisible, but at least they're not actively doing damage by openly declaring that being gay is something to hide if you want to be successful.
I agree, r20. The rest are just JEALOUS.
Oh, it's completely possible for him to be a lovely person but still be an asshole coward for going back in the closet.
Basement dwellers everywhere are out today searching for beards. Slow day on DL
Give me a break, r32!
Why, r34? There are plenty of people who made loathesome decisions or actions in order to promote their careers, but could still be lovely, nice people face to face.
I've also heard he's a great guy from people, if occasionally a little full of himself. I've no problem with him being 'out' or 'in'.
More importantly, where's the Cam4 video? Pics are already out so you just know the video of him wanking his 8 incher is going to hit sometime.
These days those kind of videos don't really impact careers - Colin Farrell's doing better than ever, Jamie Foxx is going fine even with that dick pic out there, etc.
I've a huge problem with cowards who are closeted.
He looks like he has facial wasting. I'm guessing poz since '98, '99.
Why does the media let him get away with it? The media drives everything regarding celebrity, so that's where you should look first and foremost.
When has the media ever gone after closeted celebrities?! They are the biggest perpetrators of helping actors be closeted.
His blatant attempt to go back in the closet made a lot of news among the gay blogs and was mentioned on Chelsea Lately but that is about as far as it can go.
Is it not the case though that he's just not denying it and going along with it? The media not asking questions would be it.
I doubt if he was asked the direct question he would say a flat no. I think Brad Cooper got around this by pre-empting it and spouting some bull about gay rumours, he also is much worse since he was married.
If Luke was asked what girls he thought were hot, hopefully he'd say "I'm gay" rather than just making a list. For me I wouldn't say I was gay unless I was asked the direct question (beside it being frigging obvious lol), but also if I was asked if I had a girlfriend I'd say "no, I'm a gay".
Nevertheless I agree that complicitly going along with bearding is really sickening, like some things will never change and it gives The Daily Hate stuff to throw in his face.
He is also a special closet case, Cavill can maybe erase some of his past but he was never out and proud to the world professionally - he was more looks based anyway. Discarding your past and your identity is never a good thing.
In contrast to Luke there was this actor on the soap Eastenders who played straight but immediately said "sorry girls, I'm gay" and was in 20 year relationship since he was a teen. That was so refreshing and inspiring.
*41 of course, always caught out by the post numbers.
r41, actually, what happened is he showed up at a premiere with a female friend that he'd known for years and they both claimed they were now engaged.
This created a brouhaha due to the Advocate article and other articles where he talked about being openly gay and his love of watching gay porn.
After weeks of this going on (and an edit war going on over at Wikipedia), his PR people issued a non-denial denial, saying, in essence, that, yes, he had said such things long ago but did not wish discuss his personal life now. Such bullshit.
I wonder if he's finally going to have the balls to rectify the situation. If not, I think we should put some pressure on the media to fucking do their jobs.
Here is the statement After Elton finally got from his PR after weeks of the back-and-forth:
[quote]I do not comment on my client’s personal lives in the media. As for Luke, he did so once, a long time ago when he was an inexperienced, young actor and now with maturity and hindsight, he has learned not to engage the press in his personal life again.
Translation: With maturity and hindsight, he has learned the exact manner in which he is expected to whore himself out before he can have a Hollywood career.
Then whatever semblance of gay community there is should be shunning him and his films, but there seems to be a solid contingent of gays who find him hot, so that goes out the window.
R46. A number of us also feel his personal life is just that, personal.
LE is a hypocrite and a liar. End of story.
Nasty closeted queen! Deport her to Saudi Arabia!
But then he sat for a painter who was doing a series of painting of gay actors put into classic scenes. McKellan, Stephen Fry and Fry's boyfriend, Steven Webb, all sat for the artist separately.
It's clear Evans is just avoiding the issue. The girlfriend comments were attribute to his friend, a PR girl. Not to say that he wasn't in on it, but because he didn't make the comments he'll be able (in his mind) to deny the re-closeting in the future.
Hiddles will only do oral; with Evans you get oral and anal.
They should call this film The Bottom Crow.
Btw, the Cam4 video(s) makes me think we'd get on very well in the bedroom.
[quote] After weeks of this going on (and an edit war going on over at Wikipedia)
Yes, this was the other annoying thing. Anytime anyone would edit his Wikipedia page by mentioning the Advocate article (even if it was just a simple mention that Evans had done an interview with the Advocate, not even a mention that he said he was gay), the edit would almost immediately be undone. Sometimes, this back and forth would happen several times in a single day. Many of the people who tried to insert the reference to the Advocate article (an article that is publicly available on the Web) were banned from Wikipedia. This went on for MONTHS.
R49. He is an actor, not someone I know personally,and he has no impact whatsoever on me. Why should I care if he lies about his orientation. Seems like these people obsessed with other people being out need a hobby, a therapist, or some other distraction.
I agree. I understand disapproving of what's he's doing. But it bugs me that there's all this in-fighting over guys like Evans as if they're the orchestrators of this social problem (homophobia), rather than examples of it. I know "coming out" has contributed immensely to the enormous turnaround in public opinion, but I think people take it too far in criticising indibual cases like Evans (though I agree he is a somewhat special case).
Exactly, R56 - who gives a fuck? You're not going to force him out of the closet, so get off DL and do some charity work or something constructive.
so very many closet cases...
Oh my motherfucking god, I didn't know all this. That beggars belief. I'm actually shocked by this.
I thought doing the bearding thing and not saying anything was bad enough, but this is vile and shameful.
R59, just because I don't want to force everyone to be out doesn't mean I am not. I happen to have respect for a persons ability to live how they see fit.
I do, too, r61, as long as the person isn't doing harm to other gays or to the gay community. Unfortunately, I think Luke Evans crossed that line and deserves to be called out for it. It's one thing to never come out, but to come out and then go back in the closet sends a horrible message.
I'm sorry, but anybody who is gay and denies to the public that he is and even goes as far as getting a beard deserves to be outed. They are contributing to the problem.
Maybe you should stop worrying so much about his life, R28. Most of the benefits of people's coming out have already been realized in the past few decades. That's how a majority of people came to support same-sex marriage. Another out actor would not change anything except his career.
What's really awful about this pussy closet case is that it makes straight people (especially delusional fangurls) believe that being gay IS a choice and that people can change their sexuality (even though this asshole said 10 years ago he was completely gay).
People like this should not be supported. They do a lot of harm.
[quote] What's really awful about this pussy closet case is that it makes straight people (especially delusional fangurls) believe that being gay IS a choice and that people can change their sexuality (even though this asshole said 10 years ago he was completely gay).
Yes, he's really THAT influential.
R63. Your mentality will send men running to the closet. If and when should be their decision.
Congratulations fuck nugget.
Well, r67, I may be a fuck nugget, but at least I'm an out and proud fuck nugget. I'm not ashamed of who I am.
He can go fuck himself.
It will be interesting to see what happens if/when he becomes more well known. At the moment he seems to be avoiding the subject of his sexuality but I doubt that's going to work in the future.
Oh puleeze, people!
There are tons of A-list actors and those that are well known, and NONE OF THEM report as GAY!!!
Don't you think there are many closet cases amongst them?
Yet, you want to harp on ONE up and coming actor, whom most people don't know. You want to cut him at the knees, because he did or is doing what the A-listers have done and continue to do.
Why isn't there a thread about John Travolta, closet case? Tom Cruise? Bradley Cooper?
Anyway, this makes no sense. You are mad the person and not at the system. Hollywood is made up of many gays, behind and in front of the camera.
You need to attack the decision makers, not the employees, who must tow the company line.
[quote]I've also heard he's a great guy from people, if occasionally a little full of himself. I've no problem with him being 'out' or 'in'.
More importantly, where's the Cam4 video? Pics are already out so you just know the video of him wanking his 8 incher is going to hit sometime.
That wasn't Luke Evans, since he has no southern accent nor tattoo.
Erm, R71, none of those A-Listers previously came out in a magazine interview before backtracking when they became famous. Very very different cases.
Closeted and creepy.
[quote] That wasn't Luke Evans, since he has no southern accent nor tattoo.
Must try harder. His Cam4 shenanigans go back to his musical theatre days.
He likes to perform - no shame in that :)
He should have just left things as they were instead of trying to beard and backtrack. The articles are there in black and white. Now, someone is always going to preface him as 'closet case'.
The sad thing is that they've accomplished part of their goal. They weren't successful in getting it scrubbed off Wikipedia, but when it comes to how the media will treat him and how he's portrayed, no one is going to dare mention the "g" word. If he does talk about relationships, it will be with women, and he'll never be challenged on that or asked why. For all intents and purposes, he's now closeted.
[R72] Not sure what you're talking about. The one I saw had no tattoo and no audio track, but that was his face alright - the guy made no qualms about showing his mug when he could have easily kept it out of the frame.
[R75] I've only seen the one, do tell if he does more than a quick wank.
I can't imagine him talking about relationships with women again - it just made him look ridiculous last time. I think he's trying for the glass closet now.
He's a pathetic asshole. I boycott all his movies!
Look, can't yall just be happy for the guy that he got casted in The Crow? According to his wikipedia, under Personal Life, his 'gay' quote is still there. Of course, in the second passage, there is reference to his connection to some woman, but that's phony. Just let it be, he's gay, you know it, I know it, but instead of crucifying the man, allow him the opportunity to professionally develop as an actor in a high-profile film and let the chips fall where they may. When he's ready to confront his personal life in public, he'll do it. I love gay men too, but christ, some of you need to relax and stop forcing people to live up to your high expectations.
straight but not narrow
How dare you!
Ooops, sorry, I typed too fast.
You are straight and very narrow if you don't understand how "visible" gay people are important for the entire community.
Someone posted this on IMDB:
It's not a "private" matter when he does a public interview and talks about having a boyfriend and being openly gay.
What it is, is hypocritical that he talks about not hiding and being proud, yet as soon as his career starts going well starts hiding behind this "I don't talk about my private life" shamefulness.
And it is shameful. You have teens killing themselves because they are ashamed of who they are, and Luke Evans just adds to society's perception that being homosexual is something you should be ashamed of.
Around and around we go, if it's not Luke Evans, it will be another actor.
As I stated before, go after the decision makers, who force these guys to be closeted.
Disagree, no one forces these guys to lie. They're arrogant bastards who believe they can fool everybody.
Well, he ain't fooling Henry Cavill. He's tapping that for sure.
I love that the PR person put both of them together for this interview
It's a business decision.
His brand, his choice. It doesn't affect you.
If you don't care for the Luke Evans brand, don't buy it.
Homosexuals are men who, in 15 years of trying, can't get a pissant anti-discrimination bill through City Council. They are men who know nobody, and who nobody knows.
I know EVERYBODY!
R89, they are put together, because they are the villains. He also did an interview with Gina Carano, because they are the newbies of the cast.
What I got from the interviews is that he appears more comfortable around Michelle, or at least, he has a better rapport.
With Gina, he seems to be mad at her, and he usually plays off very well with people he interacts with, so it's telling. Perhaps, he is ticked off that she is carting off his boo, Henry Cavill, around the globe.
So why an NBA man can be out? But not some Z list movie queen?
Because fangurls don't like that we spoil their sex dreams.
This thread isn't about Michelle Rodriguez!
But girls like gay guys, R95.
I'd much prefer: but girls like OUT gay guys. What about Andy Cooper?
Andy Cooper, r100.
She's more interesting though r96.
[quote]So why an NBA man can be out? But not some Z list movie queen?
That's what I'm wondering. Not like he'll ever be a "star". He'll be lucky to have an Alan Cumming type career.
R90 = Typical retarded fangurl.
Leave Luke Evans alone! You're just jealous, r104.
R105 as well, I think. Poor deluded fangurls. If they knew what these closeted cowards think of them. Haha
I'm not R90 or R105, I'm a fan with no delusions; I just want to see him do well.
Ok Luke, Now keep calm.
Leave. Luke. Alone. Bitches.
R101/R105/R109 = Same deluded fangurl
I think that the deluded fangurl is Luke himself. Haha
I doubt it. He's too busy getting paid.
[quote]Poor deluded fangurls. If they knew what these closeted cowards think of them. Haha
When he think of you he went back into closet. Whose fangurl are you? Orlando Bloom or Matt Bomer?
F&F the dumb straight fangurl at R86/R88/R93/R100/R107/R112
So sick of straight cunts coming on this site with their bullshit.
I couldn't agree more.
f&f is for limp biscuits.
R106 I agree, how coward of a man Luke Evans is, they are just dumb girls...but will you stop with that "Haha" thing? it makes you sound like a lowlife insufferable cunt.
Not sure if I've posted this before...but Wikipedia has stopped censoring Luke's page when it comes to his sexuality. So anyone who looks him up can now see that he's outed himself in the public domain and there isn't some psycho PR freak trying to hide it anymore ;)
Not sure why they stopped but I'm glad they did. It's on permanent record and trying to hide it was futile.
For R113 R116 R117 aka the same fangurl.
r118, the way it reads now, it sounds like he "changed" his sexuality from gay to straight.
During his early career, Evans openly identified as gay. In a 2002 interview, he said "[E]verybody knew me as a gay man, and in my life in London I never tried to hide it" and that by being open he would not have "that skeleton in the closet they can rattle out". In 2004, he said that his acting career had not suffered by being out.
In September 2010, Evans was romantically linked with a female PR executive who stated, "Luke's lovely – we're really old friends and it just sort of happened. ... We are nowhere near engaged but things are really good."
[R121] That is a point...Still, it's not outright denial anymore. It's a start.
R120 = Orlando Bloom fangurl.
I love how people think they can order people into doing something that might be a detriment to their careers.
So, let's say Luke does what you want, and his career sinks to the sewer. How does that help the cause?
He wouldn't be high-profile to speak.
Wouldn't it be better, if the decision makers of Hollywood actually changed thing on the screen?
I say this, because I haven't seen any out person making changes in Hollywood nor do I see them having these big careers.
Obviously, you're another closet case.
At this point, R124, staying in the closet is doing more harm than good to Luke's career in the long term. He just comes off as a coward and a douche.
R124 Who's trying to order Luke to do anything? He already came out of his own accord. Maybe he regrets that now, but he can't undo it. All the fake girlfriend story did is make him look stupid.
His cock is actually very nice. Not especially long, but girthy.
What a hunk! His Welsh accent is sexy. Shame about the closeting business.
He's on the record being openly gay.
How does he beard? He takes a PR chick to premieres, so what? If he really wanted to beard, he'd be married to an actress.
The rumor about him being engaged originated on twitter. Just so ya know
Hunk my ass. He looks like shit up close without makeup on and old as hell for only 34.
I agree, he is handsome. There is something quite seductive about him.
He'a a coward and a liar.
R143 Can we honestly blame him? Wouldn't you want to have a great career in the movies? Yeah, it's ridiculous that he went back into the closet after coming out, but the reality is that Hollywood wouldn't let him have it all. He had to choose. I'm sure it doesn't make him too happy. WE want them to be out and successful, but show me an out A-lister. Yeah, exactly. Sucks, but what can you do.
Bollocks. And he's no a-lister.
R144, didn't say Luke was an A-lister, but he is surely on his way, with two starring roles in two major upcoming movies not to mention his big parts in the TWO Hobbit sequels.
What R144 said is that s/he does not know an Out
A-lister, meaning that if Luke is striving to become one, he'll have to follow the playbook.
[quote]There is something quite seductive about him. [/quote]
I know. Even the interviewer was tripping out and pretty much thinking the same thing.
Zachary is an a-lister and a man with balls, Luke Evans is just being pathetic trying to in himself.
That's why his Cam4 exploits are so interesting. He continued to appear there AFTER his movie career had taken off. It's like he wants to be outed.
Zachary is not an A-lister, check out the definition of one.
Here's a quick one: a household name that can headline and fill seats in a theater.
By your definition Luke Evans is definitely not an a-lister, then.
NO ONE SAID HE WAS.
Geez, how lame can you be, if you can't be bothered to re-read what was written.
R151 Is that really hard to get what R144 was saying? He didn't say Evans is an A-list, you gay emotional idiot!
GAY emotional idiot? You can do better, frau.
He's an average actor but, above all, he's a coward and a liar. Ok?
R154 I was talking about how slow you are, idiot.
Better a coward and an average PAID actor than an idiot, who can's read, right?
Nor, can he admit he read wrong, and that's why I second R153, you're an idiot, indeed.
R154, no he wants to deflect his fault and start harping on another complaint about an actor, when he needs to work on himself.
I just cannot stand when poster want to blow up on something, that they didn't read right in the first place.
When they are called out on it, they can't admit they read wrong.
What's so hard about that?
R155 Never as much as you are, king of idiots and probably another closeted case.
So slow and emotional she even thinks Zachary Quinto is an A-lister...seriously, how old are these so called "anti-cowards & liars" here? Most of them sound like a dumb broken record.
Can you cunts quit fighting so we can get back to trashing Luke?
clearly, another closeted one.
Yep, you're right. Let's trash Luke.
I'm not going to trash Luke. He's not doing anything that 50% of actors are already doing in the business.
Why spend time trashing someone, who merely wants to work?
Saying he is gay is one thing, but to destroy someone I'm not going to do.
He was extremely attractive in F&F6.
Actually, he is, R163. It's one thing to stay closeted during your career. It's entirely different to be out as a gay actor at one point, giving interviews saying how much you love cock, and then go back into the closet, and even start bearding! It's disgusting.
Nobody wants to destroy him. He has just to be honest and stop this charade about being straight.
I just love how people feel as if he owes the public anything.
As the saying goes, he doesn't really have to do anything but pay taxes and die.
Love that video on R147, and he was sexy in F6, as much as he could be.
I thought he and Michelle Rodriguez had great chemistry.
R146 Exactly what I was saying!
Don't blame Luke. Blame all the directors, producers, casting agents that want nothing to do with openly gay actors.
Quinto used to nab a part or two a year but since he came out, he hasn't nabbed one movie part. Not even small one.
Yep, you're right, STID is definitely a very, very small and low budget film.
(at least in your nightmares)
R172 It's true. But I feel like Quinto is not a good example here. Sure it's a huge franchise movie, but would anyone cast him as a romantic lead? He wasn't before, so it's difficult to say really.
Everybody says that Quinto won't get a (non-psycho) romantic role because he's out, I say it's because his looks just doesn't fit in that kind of role.
Romantic roles are so overrated and boring.
Who's doing them? Gerarld Butler, maybe.
Not a shining example of successful actor.
R173 Star Trek 2 was filming prior to his coming out.
r174 I'm not talking about romantic roles. He isn't getting ANY roles. No openly gay actors in Hollywood do.
It's not true and maybe the best example that an out gay actor can be cast in huge productions is Ian McKellen.
r178 That's the ONLY example and his work has all been limited to Lord Of The rings stuff. He's so strapped for cash now that he has to do a low grade British gay sitcom.
Ian McKellen stripped for cash. Haha, this is the best joke of the day/week/month...
You have to be kidding, r179. Ian McKellen, who has had starring roles in the LOTR, X-Men, and The Hobbit film franchises, all of which are billion-dollar smashes, is strapped for cash. You are a special kind of idiot, aren't you?
I think that R179 wants, very badly, to deny that a talented out actor can be extremely
successful, typical of the closeted cases.
Maybe I should have said strapped for work instead of "cash strapped". He clearly doesn't have work or else he wouldn't be doing that gay show.
His work is all linked to Lord Of The Rings with the exception of the small part he plays in the upcoming Xmen film.
What other gay actors work in film? ZERO. Unless you count Neil Patrick Harris in the Smurfs or voice over roles.
Hell, even gay roles in film are played by straight actors.

This line of discussion ought to be further developed as Quinto is the only young, out, male, MOVIE actor who is currently high profile (why people continue to tout old, non-leading man, character actor McKellan as the best example of an actor for whom being out didn't damage his movie career is puzzling and desperate as he falls into a different demographic category for both movie-makers and movie goers). However, now people are saying that since coming out, Quinto's movie offers have dried up. Others say that it has nothing to do with his sexuality, and it's better attributed to his "unusual" looks.
So, which is it, people? Frankly, if one removes Quinto's Spock garb, I believe that he's an attractive man -- certainly, no less attractive than the other guys his age who are being hired for leading man types of roles. On HEROES, he even had a brief arc in which he romanced one of the main female characters (yes, I know that that's television. My point is that he was believable when doing so). Using his looks as an argument for offers drying up is a poor explanation.
Thus, to what can his current dry spell be attributed? It's analogous to the chicken/egg saying... Which came first? Being out or not being leading man material? Are apologists using his looks because they don't want to acknowledge that there may have been a negative consequence to coming out, or -- when removing his STAR TREK franchise -- were Quinto's opportunities limited regardless of his sexuality?
Quinto is working steadily, the person who says he's not working is the same that says that Ian McKellen is strapped for cash.
It's a question of talent and intelligence not of sexual orientation.
R185 He works in THEATER. The one small film part he has was announced months before his coming out and he has no other projects.
You know Quinto troll, I wish I had the small parts he has. Now I get that R181 was right, you are a special kind of idiot.
"You know Quinto troll, I wish I had the small parts he has. "
Haha, we know you are a closeted case, too.
Same with Matt Bomer. He had parts in In Time, Magic Mike, and got a role in a collin farrell movie.
Now it's been about 15-16 months since he came out and he has landed NO parts.
I'm not familiar with Matt but Zachary is 9th on the IMDB rank, not so bad for an actor "who's not working".
r191 That just proves my point even more.
Haha, you're out of your mind.
Re: Sir Ian McKellan. He does whatever roles take his fancy. Around 2005 he did a stint on Coronation Street - a soap. He certainly wasn't strapped for cash as it was not too Long after TLOTR and around the time of the first X Men movie. He probably decided to do Vicious because it looked fun and he'd be working alongside Sir Derek Jacobi.
R192, I'm not sure if you're a troll or not.. but I'm gonna go with not, just for the sake of it. If he didn't want to come out, he shouldn't have come out.. easy as that. You can't just take it back. It doesn't work like that. I know he probably didn't think about a big Hollywood career at that point, but so what? You can't keep defending him. It's not possible to take back something as frank as "I love big dicks". He made his choice by coming out that time. It may cause some inconvenience at this point in his career, no doubt about it. But he should just own up to it. There is such a thing as having morals.
Heck.. I'd even have at least some respect for him if he only said "no comment", basically being in the glass closet. But he hasn't done that.. he's hinted at the fact that he likes girls and he's even had beards! Maybe if he was never out, or maybe if he just went back into the glass closet, it wouldn't be half as bad as it is now. It's just the way he's done it.. from being an open and proud gay man, talking about cocks. Then, tasting a bit of success, goes back into the closet, beard up, and sell his morals just like that. Just for some money. I'm sorry, but "him wanting a big movie career" doesn't cut it. It's not a valid excuse. He's a dick. He sold his soul for money. That's a fact. What he did was appalling and I can't believe people here are defending him! wtf?!?
r190, Bomer got all those roles AFTER he came out.
r196 no he didn't. He hasn't gotten anything since he came out. he booked all those jobs prior.
You are pathetic. Remember to lend some money to the "poor" ian McKellen, frau troll.
I wish Bomer got a big leading role in a movie to prove that it's possible after all. It's a shame. If I had to choose, I'd rather all these actors didn't come out, if it meant we got to see them get great parts. What good is an out Bradley Cooper or Luke Evans if they are not on the screen.
I so agree with you, r199; I just don't want to see or hear about such perversions.
R200, nasty hom,ophobic scuum! Rot in hell you dirty pig!
Bomer has been known to be gay since White Collar started. So yes, he has, secured parts in film after that point.
I don't think Quinto counts because I don't think that he is really hoping to be an A list film star. He has always worked more in TV and Theater.
The argument that he isn't successful in film since he came out, is to quote Spock, illogical and invalid. There simply isn't enough information to determine if that is true.
First we would need evidence that he wants to be an A list film star, then we need evidence to support that he was primed for that to happen prior to coming out.
Well already we have a fly in the ointment of your assertions because Quinto was not on the brink of A list film status. He had ST, but outside of that he wasn't in many films, Margin call was his other somewhat big film.
Even if he had not come out, I doubt he was going to become an A list film star. and I further doubt that he wants that.
None of his interviews support that, he has lots of friends and colleagues in TV, He does a lot of indie short films and he loves to theater.
He has even hinted at wanting to work as a musician. I think he likes doing a variety of things and doesn't just want to be a film star. His friend and co-star Chris Pine on the other hand, really is looking for mostly just Film work. He likes theater too, but I think he is hoping his career trajectory is headed towards A-B list film star with occasion theater or indie work.
Zach's career is not derailed by being out. He has the career he wants.
Stop assuming that for actors, the only sign of success and fulfillment is to be a major Film star.
In actuality, the shortest shelf life for most actors is Film. Where as versatile actors who work in several mediums are the ones with longer, more varied careers.
