Wow - did the NY Observer just out Chace Crawford?
[quote]At a crowded movie premiere in Midtown recently, The Observer witnessed a young movie and TV star—a dashing young man who’s been involved with several starlets despite whispers about his close relationships with other men—sitting for the entire party in close conversation with a well-groomed gent, even as his co-stars circulated. As we passed, the plus-one stared us down, as if to say, “Step off,” or perhaps, “Don’t you dare write about this.”
[quote]Nor did we, since the question of whether it is news that a virile young actor was enjoying the company of one man—if not the company of men—is very much still open.
[quote]If he’s in fact gay, that’s a lesson Chace Crawford—the dashing, engrossed young man at the premiere—may do well to heed.

I have to agree, he was stunningly gorgeous when he was cast on Gossip Girl but he has pretty much proven that all he has going for him are his looks.
And yes, bland is the right word R6. I've never seem him really sizzle or pop oncreen. If he is gay, it is a pity as another talented gay hearthrob would have been nice but I can't see him going anywhere.

How is it outing someone who is openly gay? You can only 'out' someone who is married and denies being gay while trolling for same sex. Chase, and all the others, better get a clue.

R42, first of all, where's the proof that Chace has picked up men and had sex with them?
And secondly, if you haven't noticed, an official declaration IS required before you are considered openly gay. The media will not refer to an actor as gay until they say "I am gay". Even if an actor is 'known' to be gay, like Zachary Quinto, it wasn't until he actually said it last year that it became official.

"I just think you can tell such things from a photograph"
Freudian slip, R53?
In any event, I'm not just basing it on one photo. I'm basing it on many, many photos, and on the interviews I've seen, the sound of his voice, the men he hangs around with etc.
|by Anonymous||reply 54||06/24/2012|
R55, now you've really damaged your argument - you were holding on to some credibility until your last post.
Nowhere did I use the phrase "looking pretty". I said he looked gay. I didn't say he was gay because he looked pretty. I also explained to you that it is based on interviews, voice, mannerisms and all the speculation surrounding him.
You then try to transition into another dubious claim: that I think he's gay because he's pretty. Wrong. That's not what some of us are saying. There is no 'wishful thinking'. We don't automatically think all pretty guys are gay if there's evidence they are straight.

It was an auto-correct error, not a Freudian slip R54. My point is you can't tell who someone is based on a photograph or many photographs. You said you've seen interviews. Okay. I find that more believable than a bunch of pictures or who he hangs out with. Your argument dances around playing into every stereotype that homophobes use to paint with broad strokes. I still contend that it is wrong to assume anything about a person based on how he or she looks.

R60, you are overreacting and this is a gay gossip board anyway.
Many of us think Chace is gay based on a variety of factors. Why do you keep focusing on just the photos? He pings in the photos - that's the reality. But that's not the only reason. It's because he is defensive about his personal life, hangs around gay men in his posse, and even media outlets like the one at the top of this thread are trying to let people know the obvious.

I think the ultimate realization of this thread isn't whether or not Chace Crawford is gay, because quite frankly who cares, but the amazingly homophobic belief that someone can tell if a person is gay based on a picture that doesn't show a cock up in an ass or down someone's throat or whether or not someone hangs out with gay people.

[quote]Interesting that neither Chace or his team has commented on the article.
Any acknowledgement of the article by Chace or his flacks would've been read by the tabloid media as a "doth protest too much" comment. SOP in these situations is to ignore it to the fullest extent possible. Also, the article didn't outright *say* that Chace was gay; it merely indicated that Chace had been the subject of gay rumors, which is true, and that he happened to be attending this particular event with an attractive male, who may or may not be his lover.
In any event, the whole point of the article was to discuss the "glass closet," and Chace really isn't in it, considering (assuming he's gay) that he's engaging in full-on bearding (as opposed to people like AC, who've never denied the gay rumors or dated women).

r64, r75: I've also heard Camp Podwall referred to as the Usual Suspects. 'Usual' because they go on vacations together & spend an inordinate amount of time hanging out in El Lay - a regular posse. 'Suspects' because many of them are rumored to be gay. Yes, including little Joey Mazzello. Just rumors, mind you, but rumors nonetheless.
I give them credit for their collective cuteness. It's like a Justice League of good looks. I'd gladly have sex with most of them (Crawford, Mazzello, Haynes, Pyfrom).

I think Chace is gay based on long-term gossip, ambiguous photos and his body language. These clues and ques have nothing to do with femininity (he is ostensibly masculine and presents as straight, except for an occasional mannerisms) and everything to do with signs and symbols that are usually read as gay.
I don't think he's out because I suspect it would rip his traditional Southern family apart, and its easier for him to maintain the ruse than come clean.
I get that.
I do think all of Podwall's clients are gay, although "mafia" seems a misnomer.
