Yeah, and the wife was a waitress when he married her, which always makes me roll my eyes - these wealthy celeb men who go trolling for a woman who's way below their league in order to get a submissive stay-at-home type. She probably showed signs of wanting to get a job or something, and that was it.

Maybe in flyover land where everyone lets themselves go after they get married at 25, but not by Hollywood standards, he doesn't. Compare to some of his peers - Jason Bateman, Rob Lowe, even the odious Kirk Cameron. He's very haggard looking.

This interview with RS discloses a bit about his politics. He's "more tolerant," he says, though he doesn't say about what.

I must say I find it hard to believe that anyone short of an enraged zealot like Mel Gibson would be homophobic after a life in show biz. There are just too many gays to deal with for you to nourish a hatred of them.

He does have a nice-looking family.

Working for Disney when Walt's side of the family was still in charge taught him some manners, and working for Embassy when Norman Lear still owned it exposed him to a diverse workforce. Hell, he's the same ethnicity as Trump and hasn't come out in support of him, unlike Scott Baio.

Sometimes I just don't you guys. He has to be the least likely to be gay man in Hollywood. Married young, had four kids, Mormon, no gossip about affairs or cheating, or drugs, and his wife is still slim and attractive for her age.

Kurt Cameron, YES!! Because any dude who constantly talks about homosexuality being wrong is suspect in my eyes. But from what I have heard RS is more like a Steve Young Mormon. He is gay friendly and has many gay friends.

Or was OP being jokey?

Yet they're still breaking up.

And Mormons sometimes do get divorced. Marie Osmond's been through at least one, and Mike Lookinland is a Mormon and his parents got divorced during the Brady Bunch Variety Hour era.

But I did manage to find at least one picture of him kissing another dude. Too bad it was only Mickey Mouse:

I think the OP was being jokey.

R49, you really can't see why someone with Schroeder's background would choose to stay closeted if he were gay? The religion, the ties he has with his equally religious family...duh. It isn't all about his earning potential. There would likely be serious personal fallout.

That said: there is no reason to think he's gay, as R47 said.

He's originally from Staten Island and the people there are essentially the typical Trump supporters: conservative, blue collar, uneducated (although they are typically Italian /Irish). So his politics have never surprised me.

As an adult he looks like a blond Ray Liotta: same roundish flat face, similar nose, both have bad skin.

R59: Like you were a saint letting any white dick you could get inside you without a condom no matter how diseased, and keeping your HIV serostatus a secret for a longer period of time than you ever actually worked in show business? And that DL screed by the guy who claimed to be your boyfriend read you to filth. You're the biggest disgrace to gay men since Roy Cohn. "Beacon of Light"? More like a human petri dish. You're lucky, though. My first boyfriend actually died of AIDS. You're still alive. Maybe someday you'll contribute something of value to society. Until then just shut the fuck up and stay in obscurity where you belong.
