Zac Efron - not gay

Colton Haynes - probably gay, but doubtful he'll come out.

Taylor Lautner - I assumed he was gay, but kept reading bis that in-ed him, maybe he isn't gay.

Hayden Christensen -not gay.

Andrew Garfield - not gay, maybe nni.

Kellan Lutz - not gay,could have been gay 4 pay though.

Robert Pattinson - def not gay.

Chace Crawford - not gay

Leonardo DiCaprio - nit gay, maybe had a bi past.

Jake Gyllenhaal - def not gay.

by Anonymousreply 307/07/2012

How do you know that Leo's possible bi tendencies are a thing of the past, I wonder? Is it our steadfast believe in blind items?

All of them.

I agree with r3. I think Colton will come out eventually though

by Anonymousreply 807/07/2012

Taylor Lautner is bisexual. And, I suspect that the other Taylor (John Carter) is gay, after watching his interview...Legs crossed, claiming that he doesn't have a gf, because he's married to his career. Taylor seemed really uncomfortable when asked that question on The View.

by Anonymousreply 907/07/2012

The Colton pictures were just publicity shots, that was not his bf. I firmly believe he's straight, because he doesn't act gay at all.

Can someone tell me when we found out Hayden, Taylor and Leo were all straight? Hell.. I can understand Leo being straight.. but Taylor and Hayden?

Haynes is definitely gay and there is proof. And only someone blind and deaf would believe that Lautner is not gay. All of the guys on this list have at least had a blow job from a guy and put out on the casting couch which for most Americans woukd mean that they were gay.

[quote]Does someone weed the gay ones out early?

You were likely being sarcastic, but yes, studios and publicists and casting agents do indeed shy away from the "obviously gay" actors for any significant roles. I've been told by a number of agents that they segregate their own clients this way, too, just as they would for any other "type." It's pathetic. And forget butch women - there's no place at all for them in front of the cameras in Hollywood, unless they sneak in with child stardom and butch out post-fame, a la KStew.

Leo is gay, I got this from a family member (I can't define it more you will just have to trust me) 4 years ago and have posted it here before.

Well, Taylor Lautner was not weeded out.

by Anonymousreply 2507/07/2012

I believe you, r24. I knew for sure he was gay when Gisele Bundchen, in a Vanity Fair Magazine article after thier "break-up" spoke of him fondly but in terms that were saturated in careful ambiguity.

It was obvious from reading between the lines that they traveled in the same circles and perhaps were close friends and both got something out of being photographed together, namely, the publicity that being a "couple" gave them.

by Anonymousreply 2607/07/2012

OP, your poll is bullshit, because the actors most overdue to come out are all well over 30. Based on career longevity alone (35-plus years in the business), I'd say Travolta is most overdue. If we're talking "glass closet" types, I'd vote for Kevin Spacey.

Colton has the most evidence that he's gay. He really should just come out. Anyone with the ability to do a quick google search would know he's gay, so what difference does it make?

Chace Crawford should come out after Gossip Girl is cancelled because that boy is finished anyway once the show is toast.

by Anonymousreply 3607/07/2012

R9 Don't you think that in the year 2012, talk shows would know better than to ask a young, handsome actor if he has a girlfriend? How presumptous of them to think that way....mindboggling...

Also, I read a story several years ago where Richard Burton said that he was a bisexual and that all actors are at minimal, bisexual. I have always viewed actors with that in mind so when someone comes out as gay, it never surprises me in the least.

Our friend Zac went to a Halloween party (1) with "a male pal" (2) dressed as Jake and Heath in Brokeback and (3) let his PR team either leak it to or allow it to be printed in Page Six. Tell me that's not one foot out of the glass closet.

Well, Leo just quit his most recent Victoria's Secret model. They dated for a year, and then he was spotted out bowling with Lukas Haas and a few people from the movie he's shooting in NYC. According to the NYPost he was "actung playful" and in good spirits.

by Anonymousreply 6311/05/2012

Zac Efron is definitely gay. He's out to the people he works with but who the hell knows if/when he'll come out publicly? He's young, he wants a career as a romantic lead. We'll see.

by Anonymousreply 6411/05/2012

Travolta and Spacey, no contest.

They've been around so long, and been so half-hearted about the closet that everyone who takes an interest in them knows how gay they are. There is absolutely no reason for them to stay closeted.

OP, I thought you said you had a list of G-A-Y actors. Am I missing something?

I would like Andrew Garfield to come out, because I think the closet is hurting him more than the others.

What's the t on Andrew Garfield? He's the only one on that list that doesn't ping for me and I've never heard any gay rumors about him. Is there some gossip I've missed out on?

by Anonymousreply 6911/05/2012

Do people like Spacey stay closeted for themselves and their own careers, or more for the careers of the people around them? like managers, agents, publicists who feel they stand to lose major $$ if their clients come out...which is ironic considering how many of them live comfortably out of the closet (I'm looking at you Stephen Huvane...)

Yes, John Travolta owns this thread. If you don't realize at least that Chace Crawford is gay, then your gay-dar is beyond repair.

by Anonymousreply 7211/05/2012

r70, there are so many unsavory stories about Spacey, that I think he hasn't come out because he doesn't want any attention on his sexual life.

In addition to DL, even mainstream sites like Deadline have mentioned it, although they phrase it differently there.

He is the only Hollywood person I've read about whose public rumour mill is worse than Michael Bay's, and that's saying a lot.

As misogynistic & sleazy as he is, I've never heard rumours of Bay getting physical or aggressive or worse with the jailbait.

Not that I approve of screwing 16 year olds, but you know what I mean.

How do you know this?

by Anonymousreply 7411/05/2012

R64, Zac is making a mistake trying to be a romantic lead. That is pigeon holing yourself and chopping off at least 15-20 years off of your career.

He should go for being a character actor. As soon as a cuter flavor of the month comes along is "romantic" appeal will fade anyway.

If he leaves the stupid vapid romantic comedies or melodramas behind and picks quirky challenging roles, he'll have a long memorable career. He is not a bad actor unlike Chace Crawford.

by Anonymousreply 7511/05/2012

I really don't mind if guys are in lame shomances to help tabloid editors sell magazines to middle America, but I hate how gay actors like Renner are so ADAMANTLY opposed to anyone even THINKING of him being gay. James Franco, as much as I loathe, probably dealt with the gay question the best of any actor. I

by Anonymousreply 7611/05/2012

If you've seen Liberal Arts, r75, that does seem to be the direction he's heading in -- I didn't even realize it was him in the movie, and you couldn't find a much smaller, lower-budget movie to mess around in.

by Anonymousreply 7711/05/2012

How do you know Renner is gay? It's not like he lives with a guy. Maybe he just likes to flip houses and having a partner is advantageous in doing that.

by Anonymousreply 7811/05/2012

I'm not sure all of them are gay. A few of them are too young for me to think of them as overdue to come out.

John Travolta and Kevin Spacey are so long overdue to come out that they seem firmly planted in their transparent closets.

David Sutcliffe is a textbook case. He aggressively pursues women, particularly the centerfold type. His ex-bunnie ex-wife insists he's not gay but not straight. He gets turned on by guys, has sex with then (with limits) but at 43 still sees it as a lifestyle not his and can't reconcile it with his straight image. He insists he's straight but interested in gay sex. Deep in therapy and fucked up

The scientolofreaks will take their secrets to the grave, then the church will publish the true stories and make a fortune. With all the stories of Spacey's evil antics I'm surprised there's never been a big expose. I'm sure there's a very high occurrance of bisexuality among beautiful young people in any sort of creative business, but I'm sure many of them settle into a normal sort of life of at least near monogomy. Don't most of us do this as we age? Not everyone, but most.
