Hank Azaria

Wasn't he out and proud long before Neil Patrick Harris or even Sir Ian McKellen? Isn't Hank the real gay pioneer in the entertainment world?

OP = Helen Hunt

by Anonymousreply 108/19/2011

Um, he's not out, OP.%0D %0D I'm not even 100% convinced he's gay at all. %0D %0D (Plus only about 25 people know or care who he is.)

How "out and proud" could he possibly be if he was married to Helen Hunt?

by Anonymousreply 308/19/2011

R2, millions of people have seen The Birdcage, and I think they all know who he is.

by Anonymousreply 408/19/2011

He has a nice built body which he loves to show off in nude scenes or skimpy costumes. Doesn't mean he's gay, however.

Most of those people don't even know who Nathan Lane is, much less the Mexican guy who played the maid.

You're an idiot, R6. Azaria is a Greek Sephardic Jew.

R6 is an idiot in more ways than one.

You should've added a smiley face for the mentally deficient, r6.

My best friend for the last 14 years knew Hank Azaria and Helen Hunt. He has seen Helen in bed with her girlfriend and knows Hank is gay. I have posted this on many occasions. If I told you how he knew both of them you would believe him as I do.

by Anonymousreply 1108/19/2011

You're the Idiot, r8... to most people who saw the movie Hank Azaria is just "the Mexican guy who played the maid."

And the guy who walked the dog in Mad About You

by Anonymousreply 1308/19/2011

There is a spread in one of the decorating magazines of the house he shares with his wife. Doesn't mean he isn't gay but I don't know why he would go to all that trouble.

by Anonymousreply 1408/19/2011

Both he and Helen Hunt are cowardly gay closet-dwellers.%0D %0D Disgusting.

by Anonymousreply 1508/19/2011

Was in an LTR with Matthew Perry for years before he bearded with Miz Hunt. And the marriage "failed" because Hank's sperm couldn't give Helen a child.

by Anonymousreply 1608/19/2011

I think John Cusack would know. Like r11,I posted several years ago that HUFF was a vanity project for Azaria that Cusack was behind. The entire cast of HUFF reads like a "Six Degrees Of Separation", but with Cusack instead of Kevin Bacon. Just look at the credits-from the producers to the actors-they have all worked or been associated with Cusack before. The same with the canceled FX series DIRT with Courtney Cox. That show was produced by Helen Hunt's curent husband who,like r11 noted,was once married to Azaria. Check the credits on that one as well. You guys really missed the boat on this one.

by Anonymousreply 1708/19/2011

Wait...Helen Hunt's current husband was once married to Hank Azaria?!?

by Anonymousreply 1808/19/2011

I'm completely lost.%0D %0D Are you saying Cusack is also gay?

Full hank-

by Anonymousreply 2008/19/2011

I think many people, gay and straight, know who in the hell Hank Azaria is by now. He's a talented actor who can look and sound different so it wasn't always easy to spot him or know who he was in different projects at first. They may not have realized it in The Birdcage, but many did in the Simpsons and his guest appearances on talk shows and other shows. He did play Phoebe's scientist love interest on Friends who had to go to Minsk. Is someone saying Azaria and Matthew Perry hooked up or were bfs or something? If so, what and when was this rumor? And well Helen Hunt was on Friends too on an episode although many actors were --

by Anonymousreply 2108/19/2011

Sorry about that,r17! I meant to say that Helen Hunt's current husband produced DIRT and that Azaria was married to Hunt first!

I personally know a chorus member in "Spamalot" who was fucking him regularly during the run.

And it was a female chorus member.

by Anonymousreply 2308/19/2011

The only place I ever read about him being gay is here. I have detected a hint of gayness watching him interviewd. A bit OT but I remember watching him interviewed on a show called Celebrity Liars with Matthew Perry and it was amazing how much better he looked than Perry and he is almost 4 years older.

by Anonymousreply 2408/19/2011

I was obsessed with The Simpsons as a middle-schooler and I barely even know who he is.

he has a wife and kid(s), but yeah, i'd be really shocked if he were actually heterosexual.

I first heard HH is a lesbian from someone who worked on "Dr. T and the women." Then HH got married. I guess she is bi.

by Anonymousreply 3008/19/2011

I have no clue about his sexuality but HH is definitely a lesbian.

by Anonymousreply 3108/19/2011

right, r30. just like marcia cross is bi.%0D %0D

Bi? Hunt and Cross are both lesbians, R32.

This is really hilarious - he's gay and so is Helen. I know very, very well...

Well, Miss R34, can you tell us who are they seeing on the side?

Most of the people R6/12 knows are stupid bigots.

Azaria and his wife's "fabulous house was in Architectural Digest. It's all very standard issue California millionaire and Azaria's poker and closet/dressing room (insert joke here) are "masculine" without being overdone. As is his son's playroom. Very made to order, picture perfect, and not quite the Disneyesque extravaganza that is Will and Jada's Calabasas palace. (But then, even Simpson's voice-over cash doesn't equal Willy & Chilly's Big Bucks).

by Anonymousreply 3708/20/2011

He was also the main villian in the "Night at the Museum" sequal... whatever that was called. MILLIONS saw that as well.%0D %0D He's been in a LOT of popular movies and comedies, never mind The Simpsons for, like, 84 years now.%0D %0D

I saw his house on the AD website and I thought it was odd there was no photo of the wife anywhere.%0D %0D It made me believe the beard rumors.

by Anonymousreply 4008/20/2011

and don't forget, Lisa Kudrow was on Mad About You for a few years playing Ursula, the waitress at Paul and Jamie's favorite restaurant. When Friends came around a few years later, they wrote it in that Phoebe was Ursula's twin sister. As for Hank, who cares? He's ugly and his new show seems WRETCHED.

R37, who is Simpson, and where does he/she get their voiceover cash?

by Anonymousreply 4608/20/2011

[R46], Hank Azaria is on of the voices on The Simpsons.

Married or no, these rumors have been around for eons. He and Hunt were each other's beards.

by Anonymousreply 4708/20/2011

I knew Hank before "Birdcage" when he played a gorgeous hunk on a show called "Herman's Head" with the gorgeous William Ragsdale.

by Anonymousreply 4808/20/2011

Back in 1997 or 98, when i was a college student, I went to a music store at midnight for the release of a Sarah McLachlan CD. Helen Hunt, Hank Azaria, and Matthew Perry were also there. At the time, it struck me as odd to see the three of them together... and let me just say that Matthew Perry seemed VERY happy with his new Sarah McLachlan CD.

by Anonymousreply 4908/20/2011

And, R48? What do you say, gay or not?

Are you all SURE he's not out and proud? I thought I read it here like 15 years ago.

R52 --

If you read here he was gay -- that should have been your first clue he wasn't.

by Anonymousreply 5308/20/2011

I remember he was asked in an interview what he would do if he was transformed into a woman for a day. He answered that he would masturbate in front of a mirror.

by Anonymousreply 5408/20/2011

Whatever he is, he hasn't aged well. He looks horrible in the promos for his Fall Show and the show itself looks terrible.

by Anonymousreply 5508/20/2011

Wasn't he on Tracy Ullman's original show? (The one where the Simpson's were a 30 second cartoon break?)

by Anonymousreply 5608/20/2011

I've been watching Free Agents and found myself crushing on him. Is he cute or is it just me? He seems like a big dork.

by Anonymousreply 5709/24/2011

Free Agents is not great, but is not the disaster the reviews say it is. (The ratings are another story.)

Hank still looks pretty hot to me.

r60, we didn't bump a stupid dead thread.

by Anonymousreply 6112/27/2012

It's amusing that there are multiple posters in this thread claiming to have first-hand knowledge that Azaria is totally straight and other posters claiming first hand that he is 100% gay. I always assumed he was gay - marrying a lesbian tends to be a tipoff - but didn't realize he married a different woman after HH and has kids now (not that that means he's straight). Just given the responses in this thread it kind of sounds like he's bisexual.

My question is - what's all this about Matthew Perry being gay?! It appears to be universal knowledge on this board that David Schwimmer is gay and Matt LeBlanc is gay (& poz, poor bastard) but Matthew Perry is barely discussed, even though he's [arguably] the most attractive of the lot and certainly has had the most successful career post-Friends.

by Anonymousreply 6212/27/2012

He was Herman on Herman's Head.

Perry is ugly so no one cares about him. He's got moobs for christ sake

Just saw Azaria on Seth Meyer's show and Azaria talked about his 2 kids and even made a joke that he was the only straight guy to do musical theater.

by Anonymousreply 6608/23/2014

In show biz, Azaria has the reputation of being a real pussyhound. A closeted gay might beard, but he surely wouldn't chase women right and left.

By the bye, I happened to pass Azaria on the street just two or three days ago, crossing Fifty-seventh Street at Sixth Avenue (in NYC). He was conversing avidly through one of those mike things people wear, and I thought, That's a very efficient way for a celeb to guarantee his privacy. Because he was just too occupied for anyone to catch his eye or address him.


He also looked great.

He has (had?) a great upper body but his ass was completely flat in "The Birdcage." Extremely disappointing.

Hank played Herman's Head.

by Anonymousreply 7508/23/2014

No he didn't. He was in the sitcom Herman's Head but he played the hot office casanova, not the head.

by Anonymousreply 7608/23/2014

I knew him before fame when he was an undefined hunk of protoplasm.

A nice person, but undefined.

Much better.

It's especially effective in his case, 'cause only like three people have ever heard of him.
