Another case of the media and some gay men exaggerating and twisting someone's words. The Gay Times asked Louis, if he had to be gay, who would it be with?
Louis said: "I got asked this the other day...I said Will Smith. Because he's very dedicated to his family, he's very loyal, funny, hard working and talented. So, in the most non-sexual way, it would have to be based on the person."
Louis' response, while admiring Will Smith, is explicitly non-sexual. He speaks of Will as someone he admires, not someone he is attracted to. In fact, he doesn't describe Smith as sexy or even mention any of his physical attributes. Louis' response is very non-sexual, platonic.
R12 Look I'm not saying he is or he isn't (I honestly don't care) but you're not really doing your argument any favours. You see if someone did want to hide that they're gay they would probably emphasise how non-sexual their response is (which he does every time he's asked something like this).
Not that it would mean anything anyway because often straight guys who get interviewed and asked the same question usually just answer without needing to place so much emphasis on the fact that their answer to a hypothetical question in jest is totally platonic and non-sexual.
For example when I get asked this question my answer is Scarlett Johansson because she was hot in Avengers. Being gay she doesn't do anything for me but there are some people/scenes in films etc when you recognise not being attracted to that particular woman proves how gay you are. I consider myself completely gay but there are certain female celebrities who I personal think are more attractive than others.
And you can't complain about certain media and some gays because when a relatively minor celebrity does a magazine and photos like this they are trying to attract gay fans. He has it in his head he's some sort of gay icon in the UK which he really isn't.
Louis is a cutie pie, I cant tell if he pings or not because he's British and I cant read them like I can American guys. I raised my eyebrows when I learned he auditioned for British X-factor, but whatever.
Louis said he is NOT competing in the 2016 games. He also wants to start his own clothing line.
Aussie talk show host Rove always did a segment with his guests when he'd ask "Who'd you go gay for?"
You can look up on YouTube under rove and go gay for.
R14, I'm British and Louis Smith pings off the charts.
He is a douche, I guess it's no surprise he'd wanna go gay for a douche.
how is he a douche r17, he seems perfectly nice to me
r13, your reasoning is strained at best, dude.
LOL! I always assumed he was out and gay but didn't realize he's "straight"
is he dating anyone?
I adored him dancing with Flavia Cacace, that stunning Italian professional dancer, in the last British "Strictly come Dancing". They did some sizzling numbers. As said here before, Flavia looked like his big sister but he was very willing to dance up a storm with her.
He and Flavia won !
Why does it have to be Will Smith?
He has done some naked poses too. Doesn't seem too straight to me, and he is too busy to have a girlfriend ! He also looks very camp dancing in the Dance contest episodes on YouTube.
So he basically said a really non-explicit of preference, guarded and polite comment and sections of the press have gone ballistic and totally taken their own version of what was said?
Welcome to my world.
homegurl had MAJOR case of gay face.
Who would you rather it be, R25? Someone like Cavill or Chris Pine?
There was never any heat between him and Flavia. He's not a credible heterosexual.
I lost respect for him when he started doing ads for Subway after the Olympics. An Olympic champion promoting Subway? That's just diabolical.
And Will Smith puts him on Speed Dial in 3..2..
Don't worry, he's not an Olympic champ, he's a silver medalist
Louis is 1/2 Jamaican = dick is huge
[quote]homegurl had MAJOR case of gay face.

R34 , look at the link R26 provides. His face looks gay as fuck.
Im not seeing the gayface, maybe its just me.
He's really sexy

Gymnast Louis Smith says he plans to continue competing after his success at the Commonwealth Games — but does not regret taking a break following the Olympics.
The 25-year-old, who won gold in the team event and bronze in the pommel horse in Glasgow, said he needed time out after London 2012 to relax and think about his career, even though getting his body back into shape was “really hard”.
He told Hello! magazine: “After what I’ve achieved since I came back into the sport I think I’d be crazy not to continue.
The huge success of the home nations at the Commonwealth shows how tough competition for places is, so I have to be at my very best to even challenge for the team.”
During his time away from sport, Smith starred on Strictly Come Dancing which he won in 2012 with dance partner Flavia Cacace.
As well as training and competing, he is to be a judge on new television show Tumble.
Okay I may be remembering the details wrong and I don't have time to find the story but I seem to recall that the press SORT-OF outed him. The Sun ran a front page (!) with a story from two girls that went home with Louis after meeting him in a nightclub. The girls said that he wasn't interested in them and that he had a bigger cosmetics and hair supplies collection than they did. The story kind of made my jaw drop. It was all but saying 'He's Gay and Closeted'.
