Saddest things closet cases did to remain closeted

Let's name them!

Raymond Burr - invented a bunch of fake ex-wives and fake kids for himself. He even received sympathy notes from fans for the death of his imaginary son!

Liberace - sued a paper for saying that he was gay (and he won!)

Randy Travis - marrying his old lady manager after a tabloid outed him

John Travolta - entered into a sham marriage after being outed. Sued Gawker for printing the truth about him

I wonder how much of a payout he got, R15. I don't think he married that bitch to stay in the closet. He married her for her money. When he got arrested for cruising at 3 a.m., she had to bail him out of jail. The marriage ended shortly after that. She probably paid him big bucks not to write a book telling the truth about their time together.

My friend is the only male hair stylist at a salon in Midtown and all the women there are constantly hitting on him, completely unaware that he's gay gay gay. For him it's the thrill of the fact they think he's straight and he's determined not to do anything to ruin that fantasy, even saying he may "switch" and start dating women just to keep them from ever finding out the truth.

It doesn't help matters that my friend is also very lonely, due to the fact he hasn't had a boyfriend in over two years, so he thinks dating women may be the only option he has left at this point (he's 42), plus with a mother (back in his native country) who has always pressured him to "find the right girl," get married and have a family, his resistance to the lure of a straight life is simply breaking down. And though I told him that "no matter what, you're a gay man and always will be," he's just not hearing me right now. But hey, whatever makes him happy I guess.

Hugh Jackman: I have sex dressed as Wolverine

Hugh Jackman has opened up on his marital relationship in the bedroom, saying he enjoys wearing the full Wolverine costume (blades and all) to bed.

Jackman made the admission during an interview with The Sun.

"The sheets we go through..." Jackman joked.

The Aussie actor's wife Deborra-Lee Furness said the costume had some uses outside the bedroom too, including the kitchen, where it’s ideal for making salads.

"Oh my God, it’s dreadful! Always with the claws. I’m like, ‘Mix the salad. Put them to use, come on!'"

The interview was part of Jackman's promotional tour of the UK to celebrate the release of the iconic character's latest outing The Wolverine.

He married Furness in 1996 before adopting two children with her years later.

Richard Simmons absurdly claimed that he didn't think he'd ever get married (to a woman) because he was too busy with his career. This was on like ET in the early 90s. I think he really believed someone would take that seriously. He still storms off talk-shows to this day, if he thinks his homosexuality might be acknowledged. He personally deleted a post I wrote on YouTube, for a campy video he just put out a few weeks ago. All I asked is if he's finally out now. I think he's a delusional freak.

Christopher Lowell went on Jay Leno in 2001 and early in the interview claimed he was straight and married and that his persona was an "act."

Here's an interview with the Chicago Tribune where he says the same thing (except without the wife part):

[quote]When he first approached the Discovery Channel with the idea for his show, he told them that comedy and a flamboyant decorator persona were necessary to set him apart from the rest of the decorating shows. They agreed, but as time passed, he says the network wanted him to bring it closer to the mainstream. "We started out very over the top, because we knew we needed to get the Saturday Night Lives of the world spoofing us," he says. (They did in May 2000.)

[quote]Raymond Burr - invented a bunch of fake ex-wives and fake kids for himself. He even received sympathy notes from fans for the death of his imaginary son!

He invented two wives who died as well as the son who died. The first wife, a made-up British actress named Annette Sutherland, supposedly perished with Leslie Howard on BOAC Flight 777, shot down by the Nazis during WWII; however, there was no one by that name on the passenger list. The third wife, the fictional Laura Morgan, was the mother of his fictional son, Michael; both supposedly died of cancer. He was married to starlet Bella Ward, his only documented wife, for three whole months in the late '40s.

He also claimed to have been madly in love with Natalie Wood.

Can't believe no one has mentioned Justin Bieber and the "sex pictures" of him and an equally gay looking young guy rather tentatively licking the nipples of some woman with a rather obvious boob job. I'm a woman, and my female friend sent them to me. We both had a laugh and figured no one has ever gone to such lengths to in himself as this kid. We both agreed neither guy looked like they had any experience with the real thing, or, as my friend put it, "they didn't look like they'd touched a nipple since they were last breastfeed." We also agreed that Justin and his friend probably fucked when it was over to get over that whole nasty girl cooties feel.

Then there's Tom Cruise and that ridiculous couch jumping on Oprah, which actually had the unintended side effect of actually calling to question his sexuality among a lot of regular Joes and Janes who never thought about it before, even with the rumors that ran on some internet boards.

Mr. Cee Hot 97 DJ admits to oral sex with gay prostitutes. Still professes he is not gay, because he has never penetrated another man.

"Absolutely not," he told GQ when asked point-blank if he's gay.

"And it's nothing — it's no offense to transgender women, but I only get with transgender women for one thing and one thing only, and that's for oral sex," he said. "Like I said: I never had sex with a man. I never had sex with a transgender woman."

The beloved 47-year-old deejay, whose real name is Calvin Lebrun, said he's remained single since a video of him soliciting sex from a man in drag surfaced online last September following multiple arrests for solicitation and public lewdness.

All of these examples should show you something - these people believe they have a lot to lose if they come out of the closet. And they are right.

I believe the vast majority of "outs" who are so critical of those who are not are people for whom the great announcement was no surprise to anyone.

R151 I really shouldn't bother to answer your post, but I will this once.

Travolta is a poor example for your case. Had he come out, he would never been able to get all those great movie roles. And he may be gay, but he has not announced it and the general public can easily believe he isn't. They are happier that way.

The only person I can think of who recently took a risk by coming out is Luke Macfarlane. Unsuspected at all, on cusp of a big career, etc. Virtually everyone else on the list is either an athlete, or an entertainer who didn't surprise anyone.

True: "No, it's just that not every gay man is a self-loathing closet case". But I suspect you believe that every closet case is a self-loathing gay man.

Just keep telling yourself that, George Rekers.

"We will have true equality when sexuality is no issue and people can be out and proud or private if they prefer."

We will have true equality when homosexuality is not treated like a dirty secret.

Have every article/photo about you remind us how you are single, but have a baby with an ex girlfriend.

Mention the wedding date over and over. We get it Mr. Clooney, you really are going through with this!

I really think someone from the press should ask George Clooney to just come out because at this point, no one is respecting him and if he really wants to get involved in politics...he better take a good look at Charlie Crist.

It was pathetic and really made him look stupid. After all, was there anyone in showbiz at that time who didn't know he's gay? At the post-Oscar parties, it gave everyone something to laugh and joke about. He really made a fool of himself.

The best closet case is Keanu Reeves. He never does the girlfriend thing. He'll pose with some of his many female friends but he never treats them as girlfriends. I saw him beard one time...for the romantic film he did with Bullock but I'm sure the only reason he did it was to please Sandra.

The woman who said she was having his baby? Dead.

Two roommates married women.

One I'm 100% sure is gay. He came out to a previous roommate. "I'm gay," he said. The roommate made fun of him. (Ouch.) I moved in with him next; I wasn't out yet but the tension between us grew negative. I guess he hated in himself what he saw in me?

The other one I'm only partially convinced. He was always weird around me in terms of not touching or roughhousing, but one night when he was really drunk he put his arm around me and pulled me in for a bear hug. Later, he moved back to the east coast from LA and told me he was going to marry his grade school girlfriend, the one his brothers used to make fun of for liking.

"Wow," I said. "You sure showed them."
