Considering you can get Restalyne or other facial fillers to combat the "HIV look," and actors are hardly averse to cosmetic procedures, I'd have to say this thread is an epic fail.
Now, I wouldn't be shocked that some actors have HIV, but based on their faces? Bitch please. If even a busted bitch like Lohan can still afford lipm plumping and the like, I'd hardly think A-listers with HIV couldn't afford a few shots now and then.

Daniel Craig looks no different than many 40something, English northern men. A rough, jowly look (see Robbie Williams whose face has aged similarly).
What makes so many of these men look ill is the terrible fake tan they don. One particular example is Michael C Hall who has this strange, sickly orange pallor on TV.

AIDS was dropping actors like flies before 1995. HIV infection rates are still on the rise.
So it's not logical to believe there ain't a shitload of HIV+ actors that are hiding their disease.
It's just like in the old days, when women hid breast cancer to keep the public from knowing they had no breasts.
|by curiousnCulverCity||reply 51||06/02/2012|
I think just about any actor with HIV is hiding it. But the point of this thread is you can tell by the way they look, which, as I stated earlier, would be difficult given the cosmetic procedures available to hide lipoastrophy. If, for example, people stated that Travolta was a likely candidate, given his compulsive behavior, and the fact that the recent kid was rumoured to have been a baster baby made from banked sperm, then.. yeah, that would make more sense than so and so "looks" like it.
They only time I ever see actors with obvious facial wasting, they're usususally character actors playing ghouls or demons on Grimm or Supernatural.

I know lots of guys with that lean facial look. It usually just means they're getting older and have low body fat. Fillers can make it go away if you want so its no real indication of illness or otherwise. For those who say they've noticed a change in bone structure - how would that work, exactly? As I understand it your bones don't change unless you have osteoporosis or bone cancer, not through muscle wastage.
I was seated near Daniel Craig a few years ago and he didn't look ill in any way. Slim, muscular, defined, very little body fat, and very healthy looking. Good skin and hair. Nice to the staff too. His wife was there and she is absolutely stunning.

GM refused to be tested because he didn't want to know. And obviously there was the recent acute hospitalization. I have no idea how he could sing after that and am glad I got a refund.
Michael Stipe has long looked this way going back to R.E.M.'s early 90s heyday. Nicky Wire of the Manic Street Preachers even said "I hope he goes the same way as Freddie". There were also side by sides taken at the time of Stipe looking like Tom Hanks's Philadelphia character.

|by curiousnCulverCity||reply 231||05/11/2013|
I don't know anything about Madonna except in bed...I'm sure she likes to be submission. In all other things, she seems to be obnoxiously aggressive.

R32 that was a rumor, and Stipe himself says he's not HIV+.
If you want to see someone who was HIV+ and who died of AIDS look at Steve Jobs.
|by curiousnCulverCity||reply 233||08/31/2013|
R137 how did he become HIV+? Sex with an HIV+ woman, sex with an HIV+ man, a blood transfusion, or IV drugs?
|by curiousnCulverCity||reply 234||08/31/2013|
Not everyone that's HIV+ and on meds or not on meds has the facial wasting.
I know people who are HIV+ and one person who had a low T-Cell count before they got on meds that you wouldn't be able to tell were HIV+ unless they told you.

Steve Jobs was HIV+ and died of AIDS but he thought his money made him invincible and could easily afford the very expensive meds but refused to take them.
|by curiousnCulverCity||reply 238||09/02/2013|
What? I don't think aids meds are expensive, if they are, you can get help.
All reports are that Jobs died of pancreatic cancer but he was one of those rare people who might have had a chance to beat it, but he refused to follow doctors advice and went with holistic medicine instead.
|by curiousnCulverCity||reply 239||09/10/2013|
Please do not take the advice of  he got lucky. It had nothing to do with assessing status by someone's looks. I am also 50 and negative. I played safe and still feel a lot of it was luck.
|by curiousnCulverCity||reply 240||09/10/2013|
R239 yes HIV meds are expensive but if you're Steve Jobs or Magic Johnson their high price is not an issue.
Jobs was HIV+ and he and Apple claimed it was "cancer" but it was really AIDS since he refused to take any medications for it and died of AIDS.

This thread has 255 replies?! What's been the main thrust? Is it mainly posters asserting that celebrities they don't like have HIV, or is it posters who have HIV themselves and need a celebrity idol to be in the same boat, so to speak?

r255, that rumour has been around a while, discussed here (and elsewhere) in one or more of the older, great gossip threads.

r109 types poz.
|by curiousnCulverCity||reply 262||01/03/2014|
RuPaul but he's sort of out about being poz, and Robert Downey Jr. alluded to it but he either was infected via sharing IVs or sex with men.
|by curiousnCulverCity||reply 264||03/06/2014|
Do you have a link to the Grindr pics R263? I did a search and just found his male fiance/husband and he, or is that the pic you are writing about?
|by curiousnCulverCity||reply 265||03/06/2014|
R266, that's just a bold faced lie. Rupaul is not poz nor has never said he was. He's an ectomorph, but not poz. You can't just make up anything to seem "in the know."
|by curiousnCulverCity||reply 266||03/07/2014|
I only recently saw The Time Machine with Guy Pearce. The movie is 10-15 y/o, but he looks completely physically emaciated & facially gaunt in it. I immediately thought he might not only have been poz in it, but full blown AIDS. He looked that sickly.
|by curiousnCulverCity||reply 267||03/07/2014|
RuPaul is clearly poz. If you see him without the special lighting, its very clear. That or he has facial wasting from meth, which I think is not as likely.

Ru wrote in his memoir about becoming HIV+ in the 80s.
|by curiousnCulverCity||reply 270||03/07/2014|
Ru has never disclosed his HIV status. R270: I believe Ru had fillers to deal with his lipoatrophy.
|by curiousnCulverCity||reply 271||03/07/2014|
Ru is not poz. If anything, he is a prude, which he readily admits to.

R241, Steve Jobs did NOT die of AIDS.
|by curiousnCulverCity||reply 273||03/07/2014|
Serious question. I was talking to this HIV+ guy who wants to have sex with me. Also, he wants me to bareback with him. He is an attractive dude but his slutty behavior still continues as he travels all over fucking numerous partners.
Anyhoo, after I told him no I would fuck you raw because I don't want to risk infection. He told me that, because of his medication use, his viral load has become undetectable. So, the possibility of my getting infected is near impossible. I have also seen someone make such a post on a social media site.
Is this true? Is this why I see these poz actors doing bareback porn because the medication is so good at suppressing the virus that transmission is very low?
|by curiousnCulverCity||reply 274||03/07/2014|
Undetectable is the new negative.
|by curiousnCulverCity||reply 275||03/07/2014|
R276, did you see the huge front page article about this on the cover of The New York Times? Or did you catch the CNN Special about it with the deliriously happy head of GMHC telling Anderson Cooper now that our mission is fulfilled, we can go out of business and use our resources for other things?
Well your answer to those questions should also answer your "Is this true" question.
|by curiousnCulverCity||reply 276||03/07/2014|
To R272: I actually read the pamphlet that was RuPaul's memoir. There was absolutely NO MENTION of him having HIV. In fact, his attutude toward sex is rather, as stared here, prudish. The man does look sickly these days, but I'd guess that it's the result of no dairy, no sugar, and no gleutin in his diet.
|by curiousnCulverCity||reply 277||03/08/2014|
r276 Technically, yes. But...and it's a big but.
|by curiousnCulverCity||reply 278||03/08/2014|
no 278, I do not live in the US, so the New York Times is not part of my media diet and the same for the US version of CNN. I don't know if you're being a catty bitch but I would think the DL, being a gay site and all, would answer these questions from an inquiring mind. Sure I can do the research online but sometimes it is like talking to a friend on this site in terms of being informed and given advice. Is there something wrong with that?
|by curiousnCulverCity||reply 280||03/08/2014|
R276 even though that guy you wrote about is already poz or HIV+ he can still get re-infected with the strain of HIV he has, infect other people who he fucks raw with new strains, or get infected with another strain of HIV or another STD.
Despite the way many poz men seem to think they're invincible and can bareback this is not true and barebacking messes up their medication regiment or how well it works and whoever else who they fuck who is on meds.
|by curiousnCulverCity||reply 281||03/08/2014|

I saw photographs of Heath Ledger in the months before he died, and he had lost a lot of weight, and looked unwell. I'm talking about maybe 6 months or so before he OD'd. He was promiscuous and he dabbled in drugs so the causative elements were there. He also had a bunch of tattoos.

|by curiousnCulverCity||reply 295||05/17/2014|
I agree that NPH looks deathly ill, and I know he lost weight for a role. He looks DEATHLY ill. A straight male actor(see Tom Hanks) can afford to that sort of role realism. No gay male actor who hopes to be cast can afford to look like he is a month away from the room temperature. So I don't buy it.
