Zac Efron addresses gay rumors

[quote]I don’t like to live in fear about things like rumors and backlash to begin with -- that’s the way I was raised -- but I just can’t see what’s so wrong about being gay.

A toe out of the closet?

not gay

Don't think he's gay either. Just a boy who used to be pretty.

Word on the street is he is a total pussy-hound, albeit a very discreet one. His attitude is not much different from a lot of guys his age. Being gay is not considered some terrible thing by many in the twenty-something crowd.

Oh, please.

OP, did you seriously expect to get a useful answer from a bunch of delusional queens who think everyone is gay or should be?

I find it curious that nowhere in the interview does he slip in "I'm straight" or "I'm not gay." Most actors in this situation would say, "I'm straight but . . ." or "As a straight guy . .."

"Word on the street" has become the lazy just-out-of-college PR intern's go-to phrase on DL lately -- am I the only one who's noticed this?

by Anonymousreply 709/20/2012

That is the word on the street, r7.

by Anonymousreply 809/20/2012

I don't know if he's straight or gay (I kind of lean towards gay but that's just speculations) but I wonder what guy who is really straight and supports gays, can say without offending gays? It's somewhat of an impossible situation. Having to "deny" you are gay is insulting because it assumes there's something wrong you have to deny. Not "denying" it makes people think you're indeed gay. Denying has some people also think you're gay and trying too hard.

There's no winning really.

r6 even if he said that you wouldn't believe him anyways.

I think his response was very appropriate. Not defensive (as if being gay is such a bad thing) and not homophobic (as most actors inadvertently do when replying to gay rumors).

I'd like to see he and Chace Crawford gettin busy. Oh yes I would.

If Zac Efron were straight (or trying to affirm it), the Advocate would have asked "THE QUESTION" and his publicists would have had him answer it.

The Advocate is notorious for letting us know that Actor X, though "straight", is cool with the gay rumours.

Nowhere in that piece does Efron or the Advocate say he's straight. He's dated a girl and done enough bathing in pussy talk.

One hopes that if he point-blank says he's straight and he's not, he'd feel uncomfortable about saying it to a gay magazine and pulling a Kevin Spacey, Tom Cruise, etc.

The tide is turning. He has to see that. If he's bisexual or gay, he'll be laughed if he lies and one day wants to be truthful.

Unless the Advocate changed its policy of inning celebrities and not asking them about their sexuality, someone said "let's not go there."

I agree, he is not gay, rumours about actors like Zac and Jake G was the reason i stop coming here.

She's gay!

by Anonymousreply 1609/20/2012

Faulty logic r9, somewhat addressing the rumors and saying how cool you are with gay people, gives people the impression that you're straight. It's a good way to say you're not gay and get brownie points for being such a nice guy.

He is taking baby (gay) steps with this interview.

by Anonymousreply 1809/20/2012

Watch an episode of "Summerland" when he was 17 and before Hollywood really got a hold on him and tell that's a pussy hound.

by Anonymousreply 1909/20/2012

Maybe you're right r17.

by Anonymousreply 2009/20/2012

We STILL live in a world in which masculine/leading men/young leading men who are gay will date girls/women and lie about being gay.

Most of the actors who've come out -- Jesse, NPH, T.R., they all play comic foils or nerd best friends.

When women slept with George on GREY'S they'd go to him and say: That was the biggest mistake of my LIFE! You are my BEST FRIEND!

Did they ever do that to McSteamy or McCreamy?


No. Sleeping with Eric Dane and Patrick D. are never referred to as 'mistakes.'

by Anonymousreply 2109/20/2012

It's kinda funny how straight frau types think ALL of Hollywood's leading men are "straight."

Girl, if you ONLY knew how few are . . .

by Anonymousreply 2209/20/2012

He's gay. Everyone in town knows he's gay. He knows he's gay. His tricks know he's gay. His "girlfriends" know he's gay.

And he says here he just can't see what's so wrong about being gay.

SO, you assholes here, even if you get tired of people insisting others are gay, the question for you on this gay site, as you snark and piss about it, before you let the door smack you on your nasty asses on the way out, is,

what's so wrong about being gay?

"Word on the street is he is a total pussy-hound"

And that street is Queen of Denial Boulevard.

by Anonymousreply 2509/20/2012

I don't know. I liked the reponse R9 gave. I also don't know what he is and I don't care. It's his damn business. But I wouldn't be shocked to find out he's gay.

by Anonymousreply 2609/20/2012

As r6 predicted, a useless thread with queens who know nothing acting like they know everything.

I'm on the street right now and I haven't heard that word at all!!

No one ever asks them if they're "bi." They can deny gay if they're bi. Or even if they've been with one woman one time.

As well they should.

If he was gay I don't think he would've said that.

by Anonymousreply 3109/20/2012

There is no proof he is gay.

All I know is the child seems to wear more make-up than Julie Chen.

by Anonymousreply 3309/21/2012

It sounds like Zac is all grown up and very mature now.

by Anonymousreply 3409/21/2012

There is also not a lot of proof he is straight R32. I mean a relationship with his co-star from highschool musical doesn't really smell of obvious authenticity.

I have no idea what his sexuality is, but I can understand why some might think he is gay.

by Anonymousreply 3509/21/2012

I know a lot of gay men think Chris Evans is hot. But you can tell he's straight by his "I'm down with the gays, but I don't go in gay bars" schtick.

Word on the street is that r14 is a moron.

by Anonymousreply 3809/23/2012

His response actually makes me like him now. He didn't get all anti-gay like that piece of shit Jeremy Renner. I think I just might spend money at a Zac Effron movie next time. Good for Zac for such a nice, respectful response.
