Bruce Weber's Straight?

I always took it for granted (that) he was gay.

by Anonymousreply 6009/29/2013

Many of the celebrities that you people wrongly assume to be gay are actually straight as a 2 by 4!

by Anonymousreply 109/26/2013

OP, why do you think he's straight?

by Anonymousreply 209/26/2013

He's married to his business partner who is a woman, but his work speaks for itself.

by Anonymousreply 309/26/2013

Men who are married to their business partners are straight, not gay!

Never liked the "look" of Bruce Weber models...the whole hairless, Ivy League,Martha's Vineyard elitist, WASPy appearance is so unsexy and banal to me.

by Anonymousreply 509/26/2013

Well, I'll be damned. He's married to Nan Bush, who looks like a woman. My guess is they have/had a very open/swinging marriage in the 1970's and 80's.

Yeah, why would you want someone goodlooking R5, when you can fuck some whore who's tattooed from head to toe?

Bad taste ascendant for R5.

business marriage. like most.

Barely. Check her out. She's in the fifth picture down

Here's MY idea of "fuckable".

The only one with dubious taste around here is you.

R7...the above was directed at you.

No shit, R10, R11. I don't really see much difference between your ideal muscleclone and the ones at the Weber link, except that yours if 50 y.o.

When he was young, he'd probably have given his left nut to be photographed by Bruce Weber.

I love that you found him at, btw. Who knew there was such a thing?

"I love that you found him at, btw. Who knew there was such a thing?"

I certainly didn't as I have never even set FOOT inside a bathhouse! can keep the barely legal,insipid twinks for yourself with my blessing...just save the handsome,hairy men for me please.

Even if they DO look 50.

No, he ain't.

Know his botty boy.

Strange even to suggest such.

Bruce Webber had been taking the same picture for decades now.

R13, you're the one who posted from As for Gramps, well, you can keep Gramps. I'll take Garrett.

Is Bruce Webber jewish? It's always funny to me that jews like Ralph Lauren so idealize that WASPy ideal.

by Anonymousreply 1809/27/2013

On the outside looking in, R18. I'm that way with Jewish stuff. I grew up in a neighborhood in NJ that was equal parts Irish, Italian, and Jewish. I loathed Catholicism from an early age, and so the Jewish "other" was my idea of the coolest thing possible.

Yes, how dare they? They should stick to this >>>

by Anonymousreply 2009/27/2013

As gross as it is to now contemplate, he's had sex with a lot of those male models.

Straight he ain't.

by Anonymousreply 2109/27/2013

I recall reading an article on his work years ago, it stated he only used straight models to dispel any real sense or threat of actual homosexuality to his images.

I lost interest after that.

by Anonymousreply 2209/27/2013

Yes, Bruce is Jewish.

by Anonymousreply 2309/27/2013

No, he's nothing close to straight. I've worked with him for years. He and Nan are a great couple, but it has nothing to do with sex.

by Anonymousreply 2409/27/2013

He is NOT straight

I was watching one of his movies. His favorite singer is Doris Day!

Loved his house. Is it in Montauk? Very unfussy place. Nice small pool in the garden and a sandy pathway through a picket fence onto the beach. Heaven!...and here I am stuck in London.

Are the orthodox/traditional jews the ones that only marry each other inbred? My friend was telling me this. He said that's why so many of the Eastern Euro jews look a like and have odd features?

OMG, I don't know.

How come he knows so much about this?

I resemble that tautology.

I'll bet he has a complete set of "After Dark" magazines from the seventies next to his terlet.

Obviously bisexual, as he has a wife.

by Anonymousreply 3609/28/2013

R29, Very religious Jews marry within their culture, believing that those raised with similar values have the best chance of happiness. Of course the couple must not be even distantly related. Physical appearance is not considered as important as inner beauty.

Less religious are also strongly encouraged to marry other Jews, and to raise Jewish children.

Many immigrants of all backgrounds idealize WASP images that they constantly see in the media. That doesn't mean they would be very happy partnered with one of them.

Miss Weber is an adamant heterosexualist.

by Anonymousreply 3809/28/2013

His pictures are obviosuly taken for the "male gaze." Females wouldn't sexualize an image like this one.

by Anonymousreply 3909/28/2013

If you watch the Pet Shop Boys documentary, in the Bruce Weber interview he comes off like a fat, bearded Liberace.

Why would such an intense "artist" feel the need to marry if he were strictly homosexual? He wouldn't; he's bi.

by Anonymousreply 4109/28/2013

What I found odd, R41, was during the PSB interview, he surrounded himself with beautiful young men, but nary a woman in sight. For a het, he really loves to hang out with cute young men.

by Anonymousreply 4209/28/2013

If he's straight, then I'm a pussy-hound.

So am I, and I can affirm Mr. Weber's raging heterosexuality!

Who was that photographer who took homoerotic pictures much like Bruce Weber's? I think he was also Jewish, but he was in great shape and had glasses and was pretty handsome. He may be dead now. I think he lived with his mother.

R45, Herb Ritts.

Herb Ritts

Why not? I get the impression that it's basically a platonic relationship between two pals.

by Anonymousreply 4809/28/2013

Herb Ritts was gorgeous.

Whet Herb Ritts? Is he dead?

by Anonymousreply 5009/28/2013

Ritts died of AIDS. Such a shame, I really loved his photography.

I read the Ralph Lauren biography (it was unauthorized), Genuine Authentic. Bruce Weber is NOT straight.

by Anonymousreply 5209/29/2013

I'm guessing bi, that seems like the most likely case. There are a lot of bi celebrities (like Freddie Mercury, Frank Ocean, Gore Vidal) that get labelled as gay by default by the media.

by Anonymousreply 5309/29/2013

Bruce Weber is gay...why in the fuck would you think he is straight? That's the damn dumbest thing I've ever heard of.

Why did Barry Diller marry? Barry and Bruce are a couple of fucked-up assholes.

Two things I know for sure, Bruce Weber and Barry Diller are gay men.

by Anonymousreply 5509/29/2013

"There are a lot of bi celebrities (like Freddie Mercury, Frank Ocean, Gore Vidal) that get labelled as gay by default by the media."

If by "bi" you mean "guy who slept with one woman and 300000 men"

by Anonymousreply 5609/29/2013

I think Barry Diller married because he wanted DVF's children to inherit his estate.

by Anonymousreply 5709/29/2013

Has anybody really interrogated him about the Leni Riefenstahl-esque imagery he adores? It's so fascist, and the models look RETARDED. In a mall, I once walked past an Abercrombie and Twink store with a giant - I mean, giant - wall-size photo of a big, dumb platinum jock gazing down with his dim eyes. He looked so stupid I started laughing. A family of tourists saw me and started laughing too. The dorks with their shirts off at the entrance - do they still DO that?
