Was Chad Everett a gay for pay?

I just watched him in two of his first movies . I wondered if his pretty face knew cock to get movie work. He was too handsome to be exclusively straight.

OP, I watched those two movies too. I was going to start a thread about him but you beat me to it.

Years ago my sister went to some tropical island on a vacation and met him. She had such a crush on him when she was a teenanger and said he couldn't have been nicer to her.

I googled him and read that he had a confrontation with Lily Tomlin, but later he played gay in a movie.

I'd like to think he was bi. He was married to the same woman for years if that means anything.

I had no idea he had made that many films. He was/is very talented and handsome.

He was funny in "Mulholland Drive"....and still looked pretty good. I love that movie...totally.

Any hot young unknown guy in the Hollywood of the 1950s would have had to put out to get a career going.

Keisha gurl, he cute.

He played a gay cop in this episode of Cold Case.

by Anonymousreply 506/19/2012

He's still a handsome man btw.

by Anonymousreply 606/19/2012

wait, I thought Chad Everett was known to be gay. Am I mistaken?

by Anonymousreply 706/19/2012

He looks great for 75!

"He was too handsome to be exclusively straight."

Yeah, keep telling yourself that.

by Anonymousreply 906/19/2012

He also played gay on "Will and Grace" - but then, so did I...

There was an episode of Supernatural a couple of years ago in which Jensen Ackles' character was suddenly aged many years by some supernatural chicanery or other. ElderJensen was played by Chad Everett. What says DL?

I'm thinking he was a gay for gay.

I had a Chad Everett lunch box in the 3rd or 4th grade. It was from some TV show set in Africa or somewhere that had giraffes as those were also featured on the lunch box.

by Anonymousreply 1306/20/2012

Was that a Daktari lunch box by any chance, r13?

If so, the hot guy was actually Ross Hagen.

by Anonymousreply 1406/20/2012

I heard he is a Born Again Christian. However, a lot of actors claim they are but they are wishy washy about it, who knows?!

As I recall, Susielee said he was an awful man and you just wouldn't want to meet him because he is completely gross. She never went on further in detail ,but I wonder what he did that she said that?

by Anonymousreply 1506/20/2012

He was probably gay for free as long as you genuflected before him.

by Anonymousreply 1606/23/2012

He was masculine beauty perfected when he starred on "Medical Center". I was only a small boy, but just one look at him and I KNEW I was gay...

by Anonymousreply 1706/23/2012

Like R17, I was a wee lad watching Medical Center and suddenly Chad appeared in one scene in his bachelor pad shirltless and wearing a gold choker around his neck. I early died. It's been all gay all the time for me ever since that life-changing moment.

by Anonymousreply 1806/23/2012

That scene in Mulholland Drive is sorta played for creepy humor but I stil went home and rubbed one out thinking of him.

by Anonymousreply 1906/23/2012

My grandmother used to giggle at the big bulge in his scrubs during Medical Center. I was speechless.

by Anonymousreply 2006/23/2012

Someone said he was one of Keanu's Daddy's. Who knows?

He's dead now so I guess it doesn't matter.

by Anonymousreply 2108/09/2012

OP - Was one of the first movies " The Chapman Report" , where he played a repairman, and seduces Claire Bloom, in his tight khaki uniform ?

by Anonymousreply 2208/09/2012

He was a (self-admitted) alcoholic for years. He looked great, for his age, but think how much better he would have looked without the booze taking it's toll, on his handsome face.

by Anonymousreply 2308/09/2012

Henry Wilson named him. 'Nuff said.

by Anonymousreply 2408/09/2012

As a budding fairy I always wanted to put Chad Everett over my knee and spank that ample behind of his--oh well, can't spank 'em all. He and Lily Tomlin had a fracas years ago--I imagine she had that Ernestine smile when she heard he started taking the dirt nap.

by Anonymousreply 2508/09/2012

Was Wilson that guy who handled a lot of gay actors?

I never knew he was an alcoholic.

Of course apparently, actor = alcoholic.

by Anonymousreply 2608/09/2012

I had read a little about that but I wonder what Lilly was really angry about? Maybe she took him more seriously then she should have or maybe things were just that bad for women, that she felt like she needed to make a statement?

by Anonymousreply 2708/09/2012

I remember seeing him in a David Niven movie that I'm too lazy to look up.

by Anonymousreply 2808/09/2012

" The Impossible Years" - made just before he got his role on "Medical Center". Also in it- Christina Ferrari, who made lots of cooking appearances on "Oprah" (she's her neighbor in Santa Barbara), and was married to car maker John DeLorean, during his trial .

by Anonymousreply 2908/09/2012

Tchad was only OK looking, the only thing you can say about him is he had a good toupee when he was older

by Anonymousreply 3008/09/2012

WTF ? He did not wear a toupee. Look at the photos of oler Chad more carefully. And he was an amazingly good looking man. Maybe not your type - but handsome is handsome.

by Anonymousreply 3108/09/2012

I thought he was great in Mulholland Drive. He was also good in Van Sant's Psycho.

He had a great ass. In his scrubs on Medical Center, it would jiggle when he would walk away from the camera. As with Robert Conrad, the directors knew they had a hot property in Everett's ass and showcased it on camera, sometimes. Oh, the fantasies I had about Chad Everett's ass.

by Anonymousreply 3408/10/2012

It's the same on Dexter. Hall has a great ass and they show him walking away from the camara all the time. If the star has the talent, feature it.

by Anonymousreply 3508/10/2012

Speaking of focusing on actor's asses... It seems every scene Eric Bana is in, he's shown leaving so the camera can follow that fat ass.

by Anonymousreply 3608/10/2012

In 1972, during an appearance on “The Dick Cavett Show,” he was enumerating his “personal property,” including horses, dogs — and “a wife.” Comedian Lily Tomlin walked off the show in anger

by Anonymousreply 3708/10/2012

There's only 1 Chad now.

by Anonymousreply 3808/10/2012

r38, that guy could not shine Chad Everett's shoes. ZERO sex appeal. Chad was a MAN.

by Anonymousreply 3908/10/2012

I have sometimes thought that a good role for Chad, more in his "prime", would be one of maybe the bum who lives in a trailer/shack at the old fishin' hole who is stoned or drunk alot, wears old gray pants and will do anything you want sexually.

by Anonymousreply 4008/17/2012

You mean a gay man pretending to be a straight man who fucks men?


by Anonymousreply 4108/17/2012

What made Lily Tomlin leave the Cavett set was Everett saying his wife was the most beautiful animal he owned.

Yep, that would do it.

He was hot looking, anyway.

by Anonymousreply 4208/17/2012

Hum...why doesn't someone write a book? He's dead already.

by Anonymousreply 4302/20/2013

"He was too handsome to be exclusively straight."

But he had a doughy, untoned straight man's body.

by Anonymousreply 4402/20/2013

If he was doughy, it wasn't for a lack of trying. My auntie used to see him jogging along the beach in Santa Monica.

by Anonymousreply 4502/20/2013

He needed weight training to tone up, r45. Besides, you can jog all you want, but with steak and potatoes every night you're chubby.

by Anonymousreply 4602/20/2013

He also gave my auntie a flirty look, so he wasn't gay.

by Anonymousreply 4702/20/2013

I knew him, he always said, "Don't play ball in the house."

by Anonymousreply 4802/20/2013

Actors flirt with everyone, aunties included.

by Anonymousreply 4902/20/2013

R10 I'm pretty sure Chad was never on W&G. Are you sure you're not thinking of Perry King?

by Anonymousreply 5002/20/2013

I don't know about the pay deal, but my parents ran a Motel in Pasadena,CA. and he and a "friend" checked in for a quickie.. My mother almost died, she loved him in Medical Center... ! That was even before I really knew what gay meant.. He sure was handsome tho....

by Anonymousreply 5102/24/2013

Thanks, R5. Those musical montage endings on Cold Case always get me, the gay ones more than the rest. It's one of the only shows whose reruns I've watched.

by Anonymousreply 5202/24/2013

Thanks for that info R51.

by Anonymousreply 5302/25/2013

Didn't he share the notoriously gay agent that represented Sal Mineo, Rock Hudson and the rest early in their careers?
