Teri Hatcher implied that her "ex-boyfriend" Ryan Seacrest was gay on some talk show (I think it was The Tonight Show)%0D\
Can you think of any other stars who''ve outed other stars?
In a recent thread someone mentioned a story about Diane Keaton. Said she was being interviewed and the interviewer asked her about who was gay in Hollywood, and her answer was something along the lines of "Who isn''t?"
Jennifer Beals outed Kate Moenning
Someone posted in a thread that when he was a guest on the Howard Stern show, Alec Baldwin accidently let it slip that Gina Gershon likes women. Stern tried to cover it up.
Betty White owns this thread
Gisele Bundchen outed Leo DiCaprio when she was caught in Brazil vacationing with her real boyfriend.
I heard that r5, which is why she moved on to someone who could really fuck her and get her pregnant.\
The most obvious is Mimi Rogers'' Playboy interview where she said Tom Cruise is like a monk and they never have sex.
On the Jim Parsons thread, someone posted that the chick from "Big Bang Theory" mistakenly let it slip during an interview that she and some of the other cast members all had boyfriends.
@R7, juicy!!! I bet is the actor who plays Sheldon, he''s sex on a stick.
Russell Crowe announced that Jodie Foster played for the other team.
R9, I had forgotten about that!
Weir and Lysacek.
Rosie outed Clay Aiken on The View\
The Hatcher incident happened on Letterman op
Speaking of Stern and Seacrest, one outs the other all the time.
Liz Taylor outed James Dean.
Jason Alexander said that he was the only straight guy to ever play the lead in "Love Valour Compassion", thereby outing Nathan Lane.
Seth Rogen outed his co-star in Pineapple Express, Amber Heard, on Howard Stern.
I can''t remember his name, but Jessica Biel was outed by a wrestler she co-starred with when the wrestler was being interviewed on a radio show. He said she had an awful lot of women going to her trailer. Recently, Perez Hilton outed Ellen Page in an interview with a Canadian newspaper, but I don''t know if that counts.
Homer Simpson outed Burt Reynolds.
R16, what did he say?
Mariah Carey - don''t recall if it was Vin Diesel and/or Wentworth Miller back in 2004.
Mariah worked with Wentworth in one of her videos, so it was probably him
Katie Couric interviewed Jennifer Aniston during the press tour for Object of My Affection. During the interview Katie said that Paul Rudd was gay, right? Aniston just said, %C3%A2%C2%80%C2%9Cuhhh, uhhh%C3%A2%C2%80%C2%9D. %0D
Howard Stern doesn''t believe many of the outings on his own show. I think many of those guys just go on there and mention some "hot'' chicks name for the hell of it.
Jude Law basically outed Hayden Christensen a few years ago when he was asked about the tablois rumors about Hayden and Sienna Miller; Law said "Hayden is more likely to be interested in me than Sienna".
Paul Rudd is gay, huh? Well, that could explain his very plain looking wife.\
What about James Spader, his wife was also very plain homely looking, not sure if he''s still married to her, but I do remember being very shocked when I finally saw what his wife looked like.
Spader doesn''t exactly look great himself these days, R25.\
And he''s a major fattie now.
Take it from me, Spader is most definitely not gay. He separated from his wife, with whom he has two sons, several years ago and now has a girlfriend, with whom he has a child.
I could care less what James Spader, or anyone else who is or might be gay, looks like. Of course, I realize gay men are overly obsessed with looks, but being gay doesn''t mean a man has to be an Adonis or a woman has to be a goddess!\
Gay people come in all shapes,sizes,colors etc....just like str8 people.
[quote]Law said "Hayden is more likely to be interested in me than Sienna".%0D\
That''s funny - and true.
Holy shit! R7, does that mean she outed that hot bitch Kunal Nayyar as well? Simon Helberg is straight, as everyone knows
Paul Rudd is not gay. I don''t think he even plays gay very convincingly.
I believe Paul played a gay person in the Object of My Affection and Jennifer probably thought Couric was referring to Paul''s movie character as being "gay." I am pretty sure Rudd is not gay.
Paul Rudd is a conundrum. I worked with him several times on stage. Definitely had sex with men. I met him a few month ago, and I could not believe he was the same person. Total video game playing, straight boy, couch potato. I cannot believe the change in 12 years.
Betelgeuse is a big old bottom.
R30 I did a bit of research after reading about it in the Jim Parsons threads. %0D\
She doesn''t really out all of them but she suspiciously interrupts herself when she says boyfriends (at 1.00 and 1.30). Maybe the poster on the other thread meant another show?
I''ve watched the video, and her remarks are ambiguous at best. Could mean she outs one, two, three or none of her castmembers.
Didn''t P-Ratz out Tay-Tay for getting aroused while wearing his grey body suit whenever they''re around each other? Or that could be in the PR sense like Ben Affleck and Matt Damon outing each other.\
I seem to recall Kathy Griffin was alluding to Ryan Seacrest being gay after he fondled her on stage on some award ceremony.\
Hillary Clinton supposedly outed Stephanopulus with a "that little fag" comment in a rant.\
Johnny Weir did allude to Lysacek being gay in an interview.
Esther Williams outed Jeff Chandler in her autobiography.\
I think Paul Lynde outed Agnes Moorehead in some book.
"Esther Williams outed Jeff Chandler in her autobiography."%0D\
Correct me if I''m wrong...but didn''t she just say he liked to wear women''s clothes? That''s not the same as being gay. Actually, most transvestites are straight.%0D\
"I seem to recall Kathy Griffin was alluding to Ryan Seacrest being gay after he fondled her on stage on some award ceremony."\
Every Bravo stand-up special she has done she has stopped just short of calling Secrest gay.\
[quote]Every Bravo stand-up special she has done she has stopped just short of calling Secrest gay.%0D\
Leno and Conan both do the same about Secrest.%0D\
"Or that could be in the PR sense like Ben Affleck and Matt Damon outing each other."\
What does that mean?
"now has a girlfriend, with whom he has a child."\
It''s typical for heteros to have kids outside of marriage today, being that we live in such a traditional marriage society.
A ton of comedians have outed Seacrest - everyone thinks he''s gay except the fangurls
Kathy Griffin does more than "allude" to Seacrest being gay, she actually calls him Miss Seacrest.
Trust me, in the trailer, Paul Rudd is still gay.\
In the trailer, on the back seat, in the hotel room...anywhere but at home.
That would make him bisexual then.
don''t fear the word
No r47, that would make him a closet case.
Didn''t Maureen O''Hara out John Ford in some book?
R50, he is about to pay off the hunky? photographer for giving him the boner he is trying to hide.
Since he was coming from lunch at the Pink Taco, does that mean he likes and eats pussy?
The fat woman from the Drew Carey Show outed Richard Simmons on Rosie''s talk-show in the 90s. She didn''t know she was outing Richard though, they were friends and she thought everyone knew. Everyone does know, but he''s never officially said it. Rosie flipped out and started yelling at her. She still hadn''t come out herself. The interview never ended up airing.
R49, yes, she outed him in her biography
Maureen O''Hara outed John Ford her bio. Did she mention who she caught him with?
A lot of people thought it was Tyrone Power but that Susie lady said he was busy doing some theatre in the East Coast. It could be Robert Wagnery or Dan Dailey.
Brad Pitt outed George Clooney when he told Ellen she would do better to get blond hunks to lure him to her show than a hot gal.
Supposedly, Laurence Olivier used to refer to Alec Guinness as "John Gielgud''s boyfriend"
LO called Gielgud "Johnny," not "John Gielgud."
OP has a very liberal definition of "outed."\
"Suggested he was gay" would be more appropriate for Hatcher, instead of "outed him as gay."
R20 Mariah Carey did out Wentworth Miller while working with him. She was asked if she fancied him and she said that she didn''t because he was gay.
Johnny Weir Outed Evan Lysacek.
Seth Rogan outed Amber Heard on Howard Stern.
[quote]Perez Hilton outed Ellen Page in an interview with a Canadian newspaper, but I don''t know if that counts.\
NO it doesn''t.
New York Timeout Magazine, Boy George, Vincent Gallo all outed Hugh Jackman.
R66, what did they say?
Timeout: "Hugh Jackman, I know people who you know! And you are gay! You know? He was just on with Oprah, the great irony, talking about how it''s okay to be gay, he just happens not to be gay. He''s singing about Harvey Milk on the Oscars. I mean, grow up! [Yelling] Why? Like, why is everything up for grabs? You can go onstage and say anything, but you cannot say that actors are gay!"\
Boy George: "Hugh Jackman is so gay. I just saw him at a benefit the night before the Tony''s and I saw him holding hands and kissing his lover! The nerve to go onstage during the awards to say he is not."\
Gallo: you can google the article "GALLO''S BIRD''S-EYE VIEW INTO JACKMAN''S PRIVATE LIFE"
Paul Lynde outed Tony Randall and Jack Benny\
Lucille Ball may not have know what she was saying, but she more or less outed Eve Arden.
r69 what did Lucy say? I love Eve Arden and always heard rumors.
r68, you should post that on the recent Hugh Jackman thread. Some people seem to think that dataloungers are the only ones who believe that Hugh is gay!
Lucy said she would never play a "man" the way Eve Arden did.
Lena Horne outed herself when she said she had a sense of "being both sexes" in a Vanity Fair Proust Quesionnaire in 1997. That''s the way old people talked about homosexuaity-bisexuality. Of course, her fightened biographer left that part out of his book.
Lucille Ball would never play a man? I''m watching an I Love Lucy marathon and shit, that funny fox was masculine. And in Stage Door, Ball in a pantsuit was way butcher than her co-stars--who included Eve Arden.
That''s not what Lucy really *meant* Lena. You of all people should know better.
Simon and Ryan have both bantered back and forth, implying that the other is gay, making it sound like a horrible thing in the process.%0D\
It''s disgusting given the number of teens watching the show.%0D\
I think EW did a story on it. Good for them.%0D
Evan Dando a musician who lived with Johnny Depp in the 80''s called their house the ''the Big Gay House'' in an interview. Admittedly though, it was said in jest and not much people even know this comment was said and even fewer people think Johnny Depp is gay, so I guess that really doesn''t qualify as an ''outing'' someone. But fun tidbit. Here''s the only picture I have seen of them together.
Can''t believe Rosie got nasty with Kathy Kinney. She had no problem outing Clay Aiken or saying that Oprah was just a little gay.
Ask Ardith of Keanu fangurl boards about the book Pink by Gus Van Sandt which she vows is an autobiography about a long term affair GVS had with Reeves.
some good gossip here.
R75, please. Simon and Ryan have both been rumored by more than a few gossip mavens as well as performers such as Kathy Griffin and Teri Hatcher to be each other''s lover. They are obviously strong-armed by Fox into the gay bantering in order to distance themselves from the career damaging rumors.
Sorry, I meant R76.
[quote]They are obviously strong-armed by Fox into the gay bantering in order to distance themselves from the career damaging rumors.\
how does that work exactly?
I remember Boy George casting aspersions on George Michael in the ''80''s. I was a naive teenager and taken aback by his statements.
It is understandable that out performers such as George might make disparaging remarks about closeted queens whose careers are thriving. Careers often go down the crapper after a star comes out while a few like George, who was campy to begin with, can thrive to some degree.
Chris Evans accidently outed his brother Scott in an interview.
"I remember Boy George casting aspersions on George Michael in the ''80''s. I was a naive teenager and taken aback by his statements."%0D\
Didn''t he also say something about Michael Jackson?%0D\
How do you know about that story r53?
Carrie Fisher outed John Travolta
Dominic Monaghan greeted Elijah Wood on a cell phone call "Hello gayboy!" w/o knowing Wood was on a stage in front of hundreds of people at a Comic Con sort of thing and had the phone on ''speaker''. But I don''t think that really counts as an "outing" because the only people in the world at this time who don''t realize Elijah Wood is gay are he and his mother (and I''m not sure about his mother)
[quote]Can''t believe Rosie got nasty with Kathy Kinney. She had no problem outing Clay Aiken or saying that Oprah was just a little gay.\
She didn''t get nasty with Kathy Kinney. This never happened. Rosie''s show was LIVE except for Fridays and she taped that show the day before right after her Thursday or Tuesday live show. So she didn''t just throw shows away. The only shows that didn''t a few practice shows that all talk shows do to rehearse the show before the premiere.
Billy Crystal on Jake Gyllenhaal:%0D\
%E2%80%9CHe was always performing,%E2%80%9D remembers Crystal. %E2%80%9CHe would sing from South Pacific and we%E2%80%99d all go, %E2%80%98He%E2%80%99s gay, he%E2%80%99s going to be gay.%E2%80%99%E2%80%9D%0D\
Sam Mendez also made what could be interpreted as a loaded quip in the behind the scenes Jarhead commentary about the other characters getting to ''blow'' Jake (referring to the scene where the soldiers fake an orgy).
What is that Billy Crystal quote from?
no way, 94.
Jake''s snl Dream Girl performance was exquisite!\
The boy can sing his heart out! and I''m being serious.
Alan Cumming outed Heather Graham when they did that movie together he made some remark about how Heather knows about parents not being accepting and she can relate to the role or something.
That''s a bit of a reach, r99.
This is a couple of months old now, but the 80''s pop singer Tiffany inadvertently outed New Kid on the Block Jonathan Knight in an interview she was doing for that cheesy sci-fi movie she made with Debbie Gibson. Tiffany thought Jonathan was out and apparently he was sort of, but hadn''t made a public statement at that point. %0D\
He has since officially made a twitter announcement and said that all was cool with Tiffany saying what she said. %0D\
And just this week he was at the NewNowNext awards holding hands with a guy I assume is his boyfriend.
Well I don''t know Heather Graham''s life story, but given that the moive (Gray Matters) is all about her character''s coming out, I assumed he meant that her parent''s weren''t accepting of her sexuality and Heather could relate on that level.
Apparently Graham''s parents were very strict and are disapproving of her acting career. At some point, she said in an interview that she hadn''t spoken to them for years because they didn''t approve of some of her roles. It wouldn''t be a far leap to think that they aren''t accepting of her sexuality.
R17, that was Triple H, the WWE wrestler who appeared in Blade: Trinity with Jessica.
Joan Rivers recently said that Seacrest was the perfect boyfriend for that blonde chick because he''s rich and would never touch her.
I agree with R100. I was reading a thread somewhere about encounters with celebrities. One guy wrote a low-key, believable account about having gone home with Graham one night. (Hell, it''s as believable as anything here.)
Paul Rudd is not gay, you guys are full of crap !@#*&%^$
Jessika Biel just outed Timberlake last week. She agreed to marry him.
I think Rudd is gay, I always have.
I can't fight it anymore, but I once read an interview where James Woods heavily implied that Larry Clark and Vincent Kartheiser had had sex.
I meant "I can't [italic]find[/italic] it anymore"
Ardith of ugos has been pushing that spiel for years and no one buys it. I mean, Reeves may be gay but no way is he into ugly trolls like Gus Van Sant. Please.
Gavin Rossdale was outed by both Marilyn and Boy George.
I've been surprised at how many stars have outed Paul Rudd, and some have not been oblique about it. But, of course, it's so obvious he's gay, you have to wonder why he bothers to hide it.
I recall Kirsten Dunst saying something about always ending up dating guys who turn out to be gay. It was a TV interview, and shortly after breaking up with you know who.
Scorned Julie McCullough outed ex-husband David Sutcliffe of Gilmore Girls as bisexual, on his IMDB page. David had dumped her after two years of married and had, allegedly, cheated on her with costars through out. I think the post is still there to read.
R-102 I know Heather Graham once had an intense relationship with a younger Heath Ledger.
Heath's parents didn't approve of him being with an older woman.
Why is it a "given" that Simon Helberg is straight? He seems as gay as, if not more gay than, his male Big Bang co-stars.
Heather Graham is bi.
Cmon, who knows what about Simon Helberg??
117, Naomi Watts was also older than Heath - how were his parents about that rship?
More on Paul Rudd please.
He has a cute ass?
Simon Helberg is married. From IMDB-
Spouse: Jocelyn Towne \t(July 2007 - present)
So most likely hetero.
Elvira was doing the commentary for one of the shitty movies on her show and when they showed a bearded caveman she said, "that's the biggest beard I've seen since Katie Holmes".
When Jason Alexander did the movie version of Love Valour Compassion he announced he was the first straight mad to play the role thus outing Nathan Lane and Mario Cantone (who were believe it or not were closeted at the time)
Mario Cantone and Nathan Lane in the closet? Girl, please my grandma could see they were gay without her bifocals on.
Van Sant did out Keanu Reeves but no one was paying attention. I guess no one actually cared.
[quote]Van Sant did out Keanu Reeves but no one was paying attention. I guess no one actually cared.
What did he say?
yes, ardith, what did he say?
family guy (the cast as such) outed trey parker on a commentary.
Come on Ardith, spill.
Why do numerous people out Seacrest, a fairly powerful guy as Hollywood players go, and stay mum on everyone else they know about? Is Seacrest that despised?
Many think Seacrest does not deserve so much money for the reality trash he churns out at E. I am curious why he doesn't try to sue more often those that either say he is gay or hint strongly at it.
In that wig, Jake G. is prettier than his sister Maggie.
He said "he lies on his back and I fuck him."
He said he had a "longtime secretive affair" and he was in love.
You could ask him, he would tell you.
Everyone thought Gus was in love with River but that's not what his book says.
Ask John Cameron Mitchel or Todd Haynes. They'll tell you.
[quote]I am curious why he doesn't try to sue more often those that either say he is gay or hint strongly at it.
Why would he sue? Is it an insult to be known as gay?
Seacrest is gay and even though Liberaci and Tom Cruise can sue and get away with it, could Ryan Seacrest?
How does Cowell get away with all of his bullshit? Talk about fucked up situations with his "significant others."
R57 - Ben and Matt are NOT gay.
Didn't Lisa Lapinelli recently out Seth MacDonald on one of those terrible comedy roasts?
Seacrest is used to being the butt of the joke, pun intended. He knows on some level he's laughable but, ultimately, he's the one laughing--all the way to the bank.
Kathy Griffin told RS on his radio show that he was ridiculous, and that was why she went after him on stage. What could he say?
Evidently, he knows she's right. He just had dinner recently with her, Anderson Cooper, and Carson Daly. (That must have been an interesting group to the other diners: three closet cases and a faghag.)
Doesn't Seacrest ever feel like being respected?
[quote]Didn't Lisa Lapinelli recently out Seth MacDonald on one of those terrible comedy roasts?
I think that probably has more to do with the sort of humor they use at those roasts. The guys are all called cocksuckers, the girls are all sluts.
Who's Seth MacDonald? You mean Seth MacFarlane?
FWIW - everyone gets outed at a celebrity roast. You know, because it's hilarious to call someone gay.
When John Barrowman was hosting Never Mind the Buzzcocks, he introduced one of the beardy comedians as "the most impressive show biz beard since Sinitta".
Who has Sinitta dated?
You opened the box...you let Ardith out..help
Simon Cowell, R150
[quote]When John Barrowman was hosting Never Mind the Buzzcocks, he introduced one of the beardy comedians as "the most impressive show biz beard since Sinitta".
If you take a closer look of the British media you'll notice lots and lots of hints about Simon being gay.
Chris Moyles from the Chris Moyles Show, who has more than 8 mio listeners daily drops hints about Simon (and Louis Walsh) very often. Once even to Lord Sugar and he played along. It's no secret "in the business".
Simon and Ryan used to out each other on Idol fairly regularly.
Ricky outed Jody, right?
I think a big outing was of Matt Dallas and Jonathan Bennett on Kathy Griffins my life on d list season 1 show. Especially since the only other male celeb friend featured that season was lance bass and look how that turned out!
[quote] I once read an interview where James Woods heavily implied that Larry Clark and Vincent Kartheiser had had sex.[/quote]
Vincent Kartheiser has admitted to having sex with men. In fact, I thought he was openly bisexual.
I think Carrie Underwood made a few remarks that implied that she broke up with Chace Crawford because he was gay - this was at the height of the rumors about him and JC Chasez - but I can't find any original sources right now.
What does Chace Crawford work on? I hear his name over and over but who the fuck is he?
R116: David Sutcliffe is bi?? God he's adorable.
R158 he's one of the stars of Gossip Girl on the CW. He's friends with what I think is the new "gay mafia" in Hollywood, and frequently parties with JC Chasez, Shawn Pyfrom, Matt Morrison, Lucas Grabeel, Dustin Lance Black, Colton Haynes, Bryan Singer and Tyler Shields, as well as fellow possibly-gay co-star Ed Westwick.
[quote]JC Chasez, Shawn Pyfrom, Matt Morrison, Lucas Grabeel, Dustin Lance Black, Colton Haynes, Bryan Singer and Tyler Shields, as well as fellow possibly-gay co-star Ed Westwick.
And who the fuck are they?
r159. His ex wife's exact post was something like... "He's not gay, and he's not straight, nuff said (sic).
[quote]And who the fuck are they?
That's a secret I'll never tell.
She's not really a star, but Rebecca Luker openly discussed in a jovial manner Julie Andrews being lesbian on Seth Rudetsky's XM show a while ago.
Has anyone ever outed Olivia Newton John? Or is she just too sweet to out (and besides, it's old news)!?!?
Olivia Newton John? I heard that rumor when I was a kid but I never believed it. She doesn't seem like she would beard so I doubt it's true.
Oh please, R160. As if Lucas Grabeel could possibly be gay! He's all man, that one.
what exactly did she say, r164?
No one ever outed Tom Selleck but why not? He is gay (I know) and that's nice except he is a big old right winger, who is hated by the people he associates with and was the spokes person for the NRA...what's with him?
R169, there was a story years ago either on here or on IHSG that Selleck went on Rosie and they didn't have a deal not to talk about gun laws. They're violently opposed to each other's positions, and it got heated when the topic came up, and someone said they began throwing insults and both of them were *thisclose* to outing each other.
That was when Rosie was Queen of Nice, and straight as far as all the housewives knew (and in love with "her Tommy").
I've never seen the clip. Don't even know if it aired. It might have been a story from someone who was at the taping (viewer or worker). Or it might have been made of whole cloth. But I remember the story well, because it was well-told and so funny to picture.
Other things I've read about Selleck: in person, he's more femme than Jillie Mack, who in person is butch.
I showed on TV, I think it was soon after the school shootings in Colorado. Rosie was upset. It's hard to believe that the whole world didn't realize that Rosie was a lesbian. Actually I had never realized (for years) that Tom Selleck was gay. You would have thought I would have gotten a clue from the super tight short, shorts that he wore on his show?
Why can't non-members search on here anymore? I don't want to pay $18 to search.
Rosie O'Donnell and Tom Selleck. Not sure if this is the entire clip.
It's very annoying that we paid our money but can't do a search...so fuck you, Datalounge.
Gun lovers...I can find no excuse for them.
"The new gay mafia"? I thought The Mafia was suppose to have power, a gathering of twinks does not a mafia make.
I am friends with a man (now in his late 50's) who did the bathhouse scene in LA back in the 70s. He said he used to see Selleck in the baths all the time (this was before he was famous) and my friend is surprised that Selleck is still among the living, given his behavior back then.
Not a star, but David Ehrenstein is going on about George Clooney again on Salon:
[quote]That George is “not to be able to stay in a committed relationship for more than a couple of years” only underscores his honesty. He was married to Talia Balsam and it didn’t work out. So he plays around with no end of fabulously gorgeouswomen.
How would he know, anyway?
Did Joan Rivers out George Clooney on her Twitter account?
"George Clooney said he doesn't care if people think he's gay. I feel the same way about people who think I'm a woman."
People leaving replies there seem to think she did.
Charlie Sheen outed Keanu Reeves in Movieline...his little speech about he and Emilio scratching there heads, wondering about why Coppola and Bertolucci would work with Keanu.
[quote]The Hatcher incident happened on Letterman op
Teri also recounted that story on Oprah - with photos.
Some female, I don't remember who, talked openly about Clooney and/or Cruise, saying it's an open secret in Hollywood. It wasn't Kathy Griffin, either.
Roast of Charlie Sheen, Jon Lovitz joking about Mike Tyson's gayness.
Lovitz-- "You know his boxing nickname is Iron Mike. Which is what the guards used to scream at him in the prison laundry. "
Tyson-- "I don't do that anymore Jon."
Lovitz-- Deadpan "Well I know you don't do that anymore Mike, you're not in prison anymore."
Tyson-- "Just making it clear, Jon."
And then Lovitz this dismissive hand motion.
Also notable that Tyson is clearly drunk out of his mind. 11:00 in the video.
Fran Drescher outed her husband and Maura Tierney's husband. I guess the hubbies aren't really celebrities though
can someone point me to where julie mccullough outs david sutcliffe on imdb?
Diana Ross basically outed Michael Jackson when she released "Muscles" (which he wrote), and said that she didn't know whether it was supposed to be her fantasy or his.
"She's not really a star, but Rebecca Luker openly discussed in a jovial manner Julie Andrews being lesbian on Seth Rudetsky's XM show a while ago."
...and that is why she probably never became a big star. The big stars protect their own.
"Fran Drescher outed her husband and Maura Tierney's husband. I guess the hubbies aren't really celebrities though"
When was this? I didn't know Maura married a 'mo
muscles was about MJ's pet snake LOL ...i know
[quote]muscles was about MJ's pet snake LOL ...i know
That's how he tried to spin it, but we know damn well what he was thinking with lines like "I just want some strong man to hold on to" and "Make him strong enough/From his head down to his toes". Snakes don't have toes.
Why would MJ write a song about muscular men?
He obviously didn't enjoy them in real life.
Wait, so the search option isn't broken and won't be fixed... it's turned off on purpose?
Helen Lawson outed Julie Andrews decades ago on the Tonight Show When she thought the show had gone to commercial, she leaned over to Johnny and called Andrews "that fucking muff diver who think she sings better than me."
Yes, Maura Tierney's ex-husband Billy is now living as a (out?) gay man in NY.
Didn't Madonna call Michael Jackson a drag queen?
"No one ever outed Tom Selleck but why not?"
Not publicly as far as I know. But I met a woman who interviewed him and she blabbed all about it.
What was the name of the woman who played "It's Pat" on SNL? Julia something? She outed John Travolta on the old Alex Bennet radio show. He was asking her who the biggest jerk who hosted (Steven Segal) and who was the most different in private than in public. She said Travolta was the nelliest queen she ever met (and something to the effect that she knows a lot of queens).
Just remembered her name: Julia Sweeney.
[quote]Didn't Madonna call Michael Jackson a drag queen?
Yes, and she also outed her own brother. She's a vile, evil person. I don't know why eldergays would like her.
R200/R201 Was she joking or serious?
Johnny Marr of The Smiths was asked about Morrissey and sex and men and he said something with a laugh along the lines of "look, we're finally getting along again. I don't understand it, either". Sort of oblique, and not really a secret, either, I guess. Moz seems to love the lavender 50's, hiding in plain sight style, like Dirk Bogarde.
[quote]Has anyone ever outed Olivia Newton John?
I'll never tell, you know, since I'm dead and all.
I love this thread.You occasionally get a thread and think yep this why I love Datalounge. Most of the time I think of Datalounge like bad co dependence but something
like this surfaces and I am like yes you are not just crazy,you also love a good old goss:)
R204, Johnny Marr has said more blatant things than that about Morrissey. Back in the 80's he said,
[quote]None of [the Smiths] are actually gay - Morrissey doesn't participate in sex at the moment and hasn't done so for a while, he's had a lot of girlfriends in the past and quite a few men friends. The rest of the band, however, are all sex maniacs.
Olivia's remarried and VERY happy w/ her hubby.
Didn't Chevy Chase out and Cary Grant and Cary grant sued and won,but then Liberace won against someone calling him gay.
Carrie Underwood basically outed Chace Crawford. She said that their "relationship" from a few years ago was basically a scam on his part and that he saw it as a big "publicity stunt"
Is Chase the one who's supposedly dating Erin Andrews now?
Not movie stars, but tennis player Monica Seles once outed fellow player Jim Courier.
r212, when was this?
R111 Liked your REO Speedwagon reference for some reason.
Tom Selleck was sort of outed on some kind of celebrity poster, but for the life of me I can't remember the details of this.
R213, I think R212 might be referring to an interview or a press conference in the early nineties when Seles was asked if she was going to give her winner's speech in French if she won the French Open that year. A bit hazy on the details now, but Jim Courier had won the men's title the previous year, I think, and spoken in French during the trophy presentation. So anyway, Seles got talking about this and someone suggested that she get a French boyfriend who could teach her, to which she responded, "You mean, like Jim Courier did?" and then giggled.
I wouldn't read too much into that, though. Courier had been reportedly seeing a French girl around that time and Seles might have been referring to that. As she wasn't terribly fluent in English at the time, I have my doubts over this particular incident being an outing of Courier. Not that I think he's straight, mind you. I do think he pings a lot.
Not quite a celebrity but a fairly well know queer chick website, autostraddle.com, has outed Lea Michele (as bisexual) and Ellen Page on a few occasions.
R37, Robert Pattinson seems to really enjoy flirting with Taylor Lautner in front of cameras and Kristen Stewart occasionally enjoys encouraging it. Why the two of them enjoy messing with Taylor, I don't know. It hasn't outed Lautner though.
Nikki Reed fueled a lot of rumors about her and Kristen Stewart several years ago in a lot of ways, including by referring to Kristen as her "girlfriend."
Every few years Nicole Kidman will mention something innocuous about Tom Cruise. Is it her way to remind him to keep sending $$$$$$ or she'll tell what she knows?
Re: Director, John Ford's outing, Maureen O'Hara, in her autobiography writes that she say him kissing another man when she walked into his room to show him something concerning her wardrobe.
"The gentleman Ford was with was one of the most famous leading men in the picture business".
Earlier, she had come to confer with him, and Ford was drawing pictures of penises. All sizes and shapes. She didn't react as he probably expected; i.e. shocked.
But, the confusing part about the kiss: The actor Ford kissed, approached her later, and asked, "Why didn't you tell me John Ford was homosexual?"
Chevy Chase, on Cary Grant.
Forrest Tucker, on Will Geer, (Grandpa Walton).
Hedda Hopper, on Michael Wilding and Stewart Granger.
The ex-Mrs. Charlie Sheen, on Charlie.
The ex-wife/beard of Randy Travis said he spent a lot of their money on rentboys.
R222 I've heard that several times, but only on DL.
[quote]Paul Rudd is gay, huh? Well, that could explain his very plain looking wife.
Paul is bisexual, not gay..a very big difference.
[quote]âHe was always performing,â remembers Crystal. âHe would sing from South Pacific and weâd all go, âHeâs gay, heâs going to be gay.ââ
Any guy who knows the words to South Pacific is gayer than Richard Simmons.
Not sure how this works, but the Phoebe Bufay character on "Friends" declared that (actor) Ed Begley Jr. is gay.
My opinion is that he's gay-friendly, rather than gay, since he's married. Not that that would insure his not being gay.
I watched "Living With Ed" on Planet Green a few times. He spent a lot of time with his 2'nd wife and daughter, and just seemed like a cool, slightly goofy (eccentric?), straight guy.
Lucy Lawless once outed Kate Moening on a video from a Xena convention.
appreciate this is like saying the sky is blue, but I remember thinking it wasn't cool. It's not like Kate disrespects the gay community, she's just very private. And it's not like Lucy Lawless hasn't had her own rumors she's rabidly deflected.
Lawless speaks with forked tongue sometimes. Saying she's all about gay rights and then taking every opportunity to remind that she's straight and how uncomfortable she finds playing lesbian sex scenes. Yeah. We know you're straight, Lucy. Let it go already.
Plus all of her flip-flopping on whether character of Xena was gay or not? Jees, all the cast and crew have said in interviews how a lot of the gayness was her creation and steering. Why the hell do it if you're so freaking awkward about it?
Before Jodie Foster came out, her brother declared her to be a lesbian.
A then young, country singer outed Country Hall of Famer, Roy Acuff.
The construction worker member of The Village People claims T. Cruise serviced him.
Renee Zellwegger, on Kenny Chesney.
OK, here is IMBD's gorgeous actor's list. Who else on this list is gay!!
R217, I know it's been awhile, and I don't know if you're still here, but I wanted to thank you for mentioning autostraddle.com. I'm really loving the site and intend to pass it on. (So thanks for passing it to me.)
Someone had to actually out richard Simmons and Nathan lane?
[quote]Before Jodie Foster came out, her brother declared her to be a lesbian.
Well no, he declared her to be bisexual even though he'd been estranged most of her life.
Outing other people? Who'd do a terrible thing like that?
How you doin'?
[quote]He's friends with what I think is the new "gay mafia" in Hollywood, and frequently parties with JC Chasez, Shawn Pyfrom, Matt Morrison, Lucas Grabeel, Dustin Lance Black, Colton Haynes, Bryan Singer and Tyler Shields, as well as fellow possibly-gay co-star Ed Westwick.
That's the new gay mafia? That's the saddest bunch of losers you could come up with.
This is stretching the term "star," I guess, but Ted Allen outed Anne Burrell last year.
Betty White outed Cary Grant on the Joy Behar Show..youtube it! Joy Behar was gracious enough to back off after she saw Betty's face. Classic!
R190, are you sure you mean Rebecca Luker, or do you mean Rachel York?\t
I remember Sela Ward sort of outing Billy Campbell on The View many years ago when they were promoting their TV show. She said something to the effect of how close she was to Billy and his partner and then really stepped on her words to try and wiggle out of what she had said. Billy looked terrified.
[quote]Charlie Sheen outed Keanu Reeves in Movieline...his little speech about he and Emilio scratching there heads, wondering about why Coppola and Bertolucci would work with Keanu.
Don't get it. What did he say?
Carrie Fisher and Rashida Jones both outed John Travolta.
Anne Burrell is a lesbian? I can't stand her! she is so nasty to people.
BTW, is Ted Allen a Top or bottom? I always thought he was a top.
"A then young, country singer outed Country Hall of Famer, Roy Acuff."
Roy Acuff was gay?
that oh-so famous heartthrob in One Direction outed himself to a swedish interview - does it count?
" Interviewer: All the famous boysband have a member who are gay. (Westlife, Backstreet boys, Boyzone, NSync) Who are most likely to come out in One Direction?
Zayn: Louis are the most camp. (They boys agree)
Liam: But we don’t say you are gay, just that you are most likely to come out.
Harry: Oh okay, I can play double, its okay for me. "
What a dishy thread.
R245, Nick Grimshaw (the 1D kid's rumored boyfriend) recently went on a panel show and the host and guests repeatedly implied or outright said him and Harry were dating.
R34 is quite possibly my favorite DL quote ever.
Didn't Howard Stern out Rosie, during all her fake Tom Cruise love stuff?
R236, what did Ted Allen say about Anne Burrell? I figured she was gay, but she never says anything. (Then again, Tabatha Coffey had her silly reality show, a guilty pleasure of mine, for several years before starting to be open that she's a lesbian, and now she mentions it constantly, which I love.)
Burrell's not "nasty" to people on her shows, unless the poster above has met her in person. She's your typical hard-ass, hard-core chef, who had recognized talent long before there were celebrity chefs, and who combines tough-love with being super-supportive of other chefs.
However, if that poster has met her and she's a shitty person IRL, I apologize. I'm well aware that celebrity chefs, like all other celebs (real and manufactured), have a public image and a real personality that are often totally dissimilar.
That old cunt Barbara Walters essentially outed Ricky Martin. She admitted she felt guilty that it wrecked his career in the US.
What disingenuous bullshit, like in the year 2000 she wouldn't know not to ask the question, how long has this old bat been in showbiz for?
And although I had heard rumours as far back as the mid 90s that said he was a laughing stock and notoriously gay in Latin America, I don't remember the rumours being THAT loud when he broke into the mainstream with La Vida Loca, a few years later yes. Certainly they weren't known by most non-media obsessed people. Bitch just picked on him cause he was a soft target to get ratings.
This is embarrassing and the audience laughs at him but while as much as we'd have liked him to come out at the height of his career, it just wasn't gonna happen. His choice at the end of the day. It looks like she ambushed him.
Adam Sandler ( don't even get me going!!!) jumped into a live red carpet interview with Sandra Bullock. This was when Speed was huge ( might have been the premier?). He blurted out words to the effect of,"let me show you what it's like to kiss a REAL man"! He then planted an unwanted hard kiss on Sandra's mouth. It was very clear she was repulsed by him. I even think she said something like "what's wrong with you?).
Apparently outing Keanu Reeves!?
Barbara is an idiot.
I love how she thinks SHE wrecked his career. What an ego.
If anyone thinks she has that kind of power, you're a fucking moron.
The rumors were swirling at the time, and she asked him a question, and she doesn't back down because she wanted the scoop. That's why she had a career in journalism to begin with.
Hardly an outing.
In 2000, Barbara Walters wasn't the only interviewer to ask a star (Ricky Martin) if he was gay. On 60 Minutes, Leslie Stahl asked Kevin Spacey if he was gay too.
[quote]On 60 Minutes, Leslie Stahl asked Kevin Spacey if he was gay too.
Was that before or after his romance with Diane?
Joan Rivers announced Barry Diller was gay on the Phil Donahue show once.
(R257) That was during his romance with Dianne. When on 60 Minutes, he said, no, he was not gay, he was in a relationship, and her name was Dianne.
