"The Help" director Tate Taylor

Openly gay and cute. Who's had him?

by Anonymousreply 11103/05/2017

I wonder if the hot guy in THE HELP who played Jessica Chastain's character's husband diddled with him. Or the guy who played Skeeter's date. Both were very easy on the eyes.

Apparently Nate Berkus helped him get the picture made and was credited as one of the executive producers... I wonder if they were bfs.

His voice is kind of high-pitched considering how butch he looks.

I like to help him by inserting my cock into his ass.

Oooh, he is cute. Hot, even.

Since taste in men obviously vary, I'm often disappointed by these "hottest. guy. ever." or "look at this hot guy" threads.

But, not disappointed with Tate Taylor.

Wow, I had no idea Tate Taylor was so hot! Seems to be a really great guy. And whoever said he has a high voice must have mush for brains because his voice is very low and sexy!

I thought it was great to see Leslie Jordan in "The Help," not just once, but twice! And both times he stole the show! AND injected a lot of fun into the movie so it didn't become too heavy.

He was also in the sordid lives series in a small role. He was pretty husky in it.

That film was wildly inconsistent in tone. Very sad and then silly slapstick.

In fairness, so was the book.

Lots of people live on former plantations, both grand and modest ones, myself included. Should former plantations be torched? Turned into thousands of museums that no one will visit?

With the Viola Davis role played by Madea.

Kind of cute for an eldergay.

by Anonymousreply 2812/17/2011

The Help is not at all a "White people are all evil" movie. About 5 of the white characters are heroic in their support of the black characters. And other white characters,like Leslie Jordan's character, are also not portrayed as overtly racist.

I grew up in Atlanta in the 50's, and I never witnessed the vile, hateful treatment of maids as depicted in The Help. But the story was in Mississippi, which was widely regarded as worse than Atlanta for blacks. And the movie did capture the feeling of hopelessness that blacks had to feel at that time. It seemed impossible to change the racist system. Even some of us white folks felt it seemed hopeless. My father (white) feared losing his job for being an "N-lover." And rednecks drove by our home shooting bullets at us for expressing pro-black opinions. So I can only imagine what blacks experienced. It seemed like a prison from which none of us could escape. And when you visited the North, you heard even more racist comments than you did in the South. Those were horrible times.

"It's another one of those White people are all racist and evil! movies, Spike Lee would be proud"

Oh, please, that is hardly the case - a lot of the white characters in the movie are not racist at all.

And I doubt your "black friend" even exists. It is white Repukes like Glenn Beck, not black people, who accuse Spike Lee of being "racist" or hating white people. Repugs like to pretend they have black friends (and gay friends) to look less bigoted.

Tate and I hooked up pre-"The Help." Definitely sexy, probably vers, but bottomed for me. Nice guy, a bit too "hollywood" and self-centered. Had a little trouble staying "up." But a sweet sweet guy.

He is really hot. I had no idea. I thought he was a much older man. I had the impression that both the writer and the director lived through the period in which the film takes place.

by Anonymousreply 6401/19/2012

He said in an interview that he bought the film rights before the book became a huge best-seller, back when nobody had heard of it. That's how a no-name director was able to produce and direct such a high-profile project. He paid next to nothing for the rights. Then the book took off and the rest is history.

by Anonymousreply 6501/19/2012

Gorgeous and very aware of it the way he rolls up his sleeves and undoes 15 buttons from his shirt. Ugh, so hot.

by Anonymousreply 6601/19/2012

Actually that is not true R65. The author and Tate are childhood friends who grew up together.

The author sold the rights to Tate because she wanted him and only him to direct the movie. Both of them being Southern, she felt he was the best person to tell the story.

by Anonymousreply 6701/19/2012

Wrong, R67. I watched the interview and he said flat out that he got the rights cheap before anyone had even heard of the book. These are his own words.

by Anonymousreply 6801/19/2012

I haven't actually seen anything that says that Taylor is openly gay. It seems pretty obvious, but has he actually talked about it?

And yes, Kathryn Stockett and Tate Taylor have known each other since pre-school! She gave him the film rights to the book before it was published.

The Help is nothing but schlocky trash. Just because an actor can rise above the material (e.g., Meryl Streep in The Iron Lady...Max Von Sydow in Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close) doesn't mean they're obligated to ignore the screenwriters'/directors' ineptitude.

He lost his erection because my big dick was in his ass. A lot of bottoms lose their erections when being fucked. He is a sweet guy though. And my cock "helped" him enjoy his evening.

R72, he was a bit of a long shot for best director. However he did have a serious chance for screenplay. That could be considered a snub.

This week on the View the ladies asked Josh Hopkins about when he escorted Octavia Spencer to the SAG awards - they asked how those two knew each other. Josh said that he is friends with Tate Taylor and he met Octavia through Tate years ago.

Now I never hear much about Josh's personal life, but I've always wondered if he is gay. And being friends with Taylor doesn't mean anything in that regard, but it makes me wonder further.

I don't believe for one second that anyone here "had" a good looking, successful guy who just directed an extremely and critically acclaimed movie. I just plain don't believe it.

R80, did you watch last night's Cougar Town premiere? There was a brief segment where Courteney Cox's character briefly thought Josh Hopkins' character was secretly gay. Given the way the camera focused on Hopkins, it seemed like one big in-joke for the audience. It pretty much confirmed for me Hopkins is gay.

R82, thanks for the heads-up. I have the new Cougar Town recorded but haven't seen it yet. I'll watch for what you talk about. My guess is that I'll come away with the same feeling that you got.

I have always gotten a gay vibe from Josh Hopkins, and after that interview on The View and his proclamation that Octavia Spencer is his best friend and he met her through Taylor, I became pretty convinced. If they aren't a couple now, I would bet they were at some point. And I would like to see the tape.

"[R81], Tate Taylor was a struggling actor in LA for over a decade before he got "The Help." Why would you find it hard to believe someone here might have had him?"

Because he was always attractive and had options to be with other hot guys. Thus, he would never have to have resorted to a DLer.

It's similar to the fella on the RuPaul's Drag Race thread who claims that he previously dated one of the current crop of queens.

You idiot, r91. There are plenty of attractive guys who post on DL along with the uggos and mouth-breathers who live in Mom's basement.

I would have liked to see who Tate's date was for the after Oscar parties. Josh Hopkins? or the cute actor that played the guy trying to date Emma Stone in the movie?

I'm sure Octavia and Tate each had 'real' dates after the ceremony.

by Anonymousreply 9502/27/2012

R85, hasn't Nate been involved with some South American guy for a while now?

I agree with OP. Tate Taylor is very handsome! Those rich and famous guys have their pick of some of the world's most handsome men. It doesn't matter if they may be ugly, mildly handsome, or a super stud. Some of the world's most handsomest men gravitate to guys who are rich, famous, and powerful. Average guys don't stand a chance with rich and famous men. Also, rich and powerful men, straight or gay like trophies to accompany them and adorn their elite lifestyles.

BTW, I remember Nate interviewed Carson Kressley on his show once and Carson was acting like the queen of fruits as usual ,and Nate kept putting his hands in a fist position on both sides of his waste posing like Mr. Clean and he spoke in a very low masculine voice. Someone told me that after they watched that interview, they believe Nate is a masculine top, LOL! right!

R81 doesn't understand that they only reason Tate got The Help is because the author, Kathryn Stockett, is his best friend. Otherwise there is nothing on his CV that would've landed him a big studio project.

They're all family, Tate, Allison, Octavia, Kathryn - they're all really good friends.

He did an excellent job with The Help, btw.
