Bruce Weber's Straight?

Many of the celebrities that you people wrongly assume to be gay are actually straight as a 2 by 4!
|by Anonymous||reply 1||09/26/2013|
OP, why do you think he's straight?
|by Anonymous||reply 2||09/26/2013|
He's married to his business partner who is a woman, but his work speaks for itself.

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 Anonymous||reply 5||09/26/2013|
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.

Bad taste ascendant for R5.

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 bathhouseaddict.com, btw. Who knew there was such a thing?

I certainly didn't as I have never even set FOOT inside a bathhouse!
Anyway..you 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.

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

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.

As gross as it is to now contemplate, he's had sex with a lot of those male models.
Straight he ain't.
|by Anonymous||reply 21||09/27/2013|
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.

Yes, Bruce is Jewish.

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.

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?

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.

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

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

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.

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.

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.

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?
