Plays the genderless pronoun in interviews.

Well, I didn't imply he was gay, but there is something really fishy about his love life. He has officially been single ever since his X Factor days ended.
And when he did his stint on the Chris Moyles Show last spring (for one whole week) he found every woman attractive. The team even made fun of the fact that he would say that.

No I know you didn't imply anything. :)
You just jogged my memory on him as regards how lowkey he is and uses genderless formats in interviews. He may be straight and simply private or doesn't want to date. I think he's more interesting for it tbh.

To be fair, r22, the Daily Mail is the UK's version of People crossed with Life and Style.
If anyone needs straightening up, or ridiculous levels of publicity for some reason, they plant at the DM with impunity.
The last papaer you'd trust to be open about gay sexuality on the whole, is the DM.

There are parts of the worldwide entertainment industry that welcome gay actors for entertainment purposes and projects. And then there are parts of the worldwide entertainment industry where being openly gay can be a disadvantage.
A British blockbuster production pandering to straight men or teenage girls wouldn't be so keen to hire an openly gay man in a lead role the same way Hollywood wouldn't consider an openly gay man to be the lead in a summer blockbuster movie.

R95, he has always maintained he is straight from what I can tell, and in the past he has appeared to dislike people looking for homoerotic or gay sub-texts in the t.v. show.
|by Anonymous||reply 96||02/25/2012|
R96, but I don't think he's actually said or maintained anything - "from what you can tell" is just speculation? - and his alleged discomfort about people talking about the homoerotic subtext of his show could well be him being closeted or conscious of PR for a family show.
And if he were that uncomfortable with homoerotic / gay subjects personally, he wouldn't have played the gay son in bed with another guy on the Catherine Tate show.
Again, he could very well be straight - it's just that I follow Merlin and haven't heard him address his personal life before, so hearing that he'd somehow maintained he was straight was news to me. I think he (and the rest of the cast) have largely avoided discussing their personal lives, and definitely their sexualities.

I don't know myself what I am so it can be bewildering to see that being plugged. I have been in relationships with women. And men. That doesn't make me gay. That doesn't make me straight. Its hard enough to go through these things in my mind without being scrutinised about it so there are times when you want to close the door and say my sexuality is my own personal business."

Charlie Condou has an 8" cock, I know that one. He's also a top. I know a guy he hooked up with who couldn't believe how frigging huge he was. It was a one night stand back in 1998 or 1999. They met at a club. People have seen Charlie nude at the gym he frequents as well. All have commented on how hung he is. He's married now with two kids, but he said that although they don't have an open relationship, who knows what could happen down the line. He said his partner, who's Canadian, was physically perfect for him.
Condou writes a weekly piece for the Guardian, and wrote how when he saw the ultrasound for his now newborn son, he was so proud to see how endowed he was on the monitor. Guess he got the genes.
I personally have never seen him nude, but he's been shown in briefs in numerous television shows. He's packing.
I'm more interested now to hear about Samuel Barnett. It's hilarious how he's never officially come out of the closet, but basically, based on mannerisms, he don't need to. lmao. He's made a lot of comments about gay issues, and he's let it slip in a documentary that when his boyfriend isn't with him in bed, he feels uneasy about being alone.
I read the comments about him and Tovey being big old sluts in NY, and was wondering if someone could expand upon on it.
Tovey was very close to actor, Michael Arden, when he was in NY, and they did keep in touch. Maybe he was fucking him.

Who was that young guy on one of the British soaps who was playing a chav character, who knocked up his girlfriend, and then realizes he's gay? This actor came out on live television in an interview.
I don't know if I could do that. Could imagine haven't to wait in the green room, not only waiting to come on, but having to wait through commercial breaks knowing that you're going to announce it on live television for the first time? I'd come out in a publication first. While I support and respect people who have the nerve to do such things, I sometimes wonder if they're doing it for press.
For instance, I don't buy Ricky Martin's reasoning for coming out to the public. He needed something for his career. There are many actors who do this now, and give bullshit reasons for doing so. It helps gay youth, and getting a face out there, but these people aren't doing it for altruistic reasons IMHO.

r189, dishing more dirt is not the same as saying, "What's your name?" That wasn't what was being asked. All we want is more dirt, and something more concrete to put credence into that info. As you've probably noticed, many of us 'do' have information -- some more than others. If one of us can confirm that something being said on here could only be known by someone close or in the subject's inner circle, then we know that the dirt is accurate. That almost never happens on DL.
Look, we know that it would be ridiculous or suicide to reveal your identity. However, if you're not directly friends with the person, you can basically say that you know people who know them, or something in that vain. Maybe you overheard something, knew an ex-boyfriend?
To reiterate, all we want is more info. Again, many of us obviously have some sources. The more dirt dished, and some info as to how you know what you're saying, enables us to pretty much conclude what you're saying in the real deal. Everyone understands that if you're a friend of the person, you can't give too much of your personal identity away. I doubt many of us are personal friends of the individuals being discussed here, but you never know.

However, his easy life is shattered by the outbreak of the Civil War, and he is forced to train as a soldier in Cromwell's army.

OK, thanks for the reply, R230.. in this case though I just think the movie is homophobic, not him.. yeah, I know.. he choose the role, not denying that.. but I really doubt a homophobic man would play gay.. he played gay in TTSS and he doesn't seem to have any problem playing opposite gay actors like Russel Tovey in Sherlock, or Zachary Quinto in Star Trek.

Russell Tovey was superb in the "Hounds of Baskerville" episode of "Sherlock." He has a fetching Cockney accent in the DVD audio commentary.
There's a weird bit in the audio commentary of "The Great Game" in which Gatiss starts, in an exaggerated American gay voice, "Tell us about Rupert Graves, Benedict," and Cumberbatch starts to reply in the same exaggerated voice, like it's a longstanding joke between them. The bisexuality of Graves alluded to above makes this weird bit a little clearer.
According to IMDB Gatiss' husband has a cameo as Moriarty's defense attorney in the "Reichenbach Fall" episode.

He does play Moriarty as very flirty with Sherlock. Of course the scripts hardly fight that interpretation - his first greeting of "hey, sexy", passing his phone number, bringing up sex frequently in their conversations, etc.
