Gay German actors
The "Gay British Actors" thread which has just been bumped got me thinking: it's funny how Germans like to think they're so progressive and laid-back when it comes to homosexuality (and in some aspects they are), yet there are hardly any out gay actors in Germany.
As a German, I can only think of 3 or 4 openly gay or bi male actors in Germany. Compare this with the number in the UK (a country with a smaller population).

Who are these gay or bi German actors you speak of, OP?
And do you know anything about that cute, beefy actor Ronald Zehrfeld, who was in the movie Barbara? He's fine.

Sorry, r1, don't know anything about Ronald Zehrfeld.
The actors I'm thinking of are all middle-aged or older: Jaecki Schwarz, Gustav Peter Wöhler, Georg Uecker (and Hape Kerkeling, but he's more a comedian than an actor per se).

Footballers are the celebrities in Germany, and the tabloids are obsessed with them. I have no proof, but I think Arne Friedrich might be gay.

What about the main actor from Sommersturm? Robert Stadlober.

The most beautiful gay actor who ever walked the planet was German. Ah! Helmut Berger...

Old & retired now, lives in Palm Springs. But in his heyday in the 70s, he was absolutely gorgeous.

Dennis Grabosch, who played Roman on "Alles Was Zahlt," is openly gay.

It seems that the younger crowd of actors all seem to be either hetro-flexible or homo-flexible. None of them seem to identify as Gay. The only youngish one that I can think of are Ralf Schmitz (again, more of a comedian).

Maybe it's because we get more of their product, considering they speak in English and all that, that we're more aware of their gay actors.

Speaking of German actors, any sex dish on Thomas, last name starts with a K, I think...was the ship's captain in the most recent "King Kong" movie & the army captain at the end of "The Pianist"....he has the most beautiful blue eyes...

And R4, last I checked Robert Stadlober was one of those actors who did not want to be labeled either gay or straight.

Boy, is this a boring thread. Only another German will have ever heard of most of these people. Back to sleep.

Actually, there are a few of us Americans that have a passing knowledge of German cinema.
I am sorry if "Pura vida Ibiza" did not make it to the US for you. I am sure it is a German movie you would enjoy.

Benjamin Kiss & Lars Steinhöfel from the German soap Unter Uns are both gay.
I also think that Jo Weil from the soap Verbotene Liebe is bi if not gay although I am not positive.

r13, you are thinking of Thomas Kretschmann, and he is a god. But I know nothing about his sexuality.

Is this anything like Jewish sports legends?

How can we forget the Irish/German halfbreed hotness that is first-time Academy Award nominee Michael Fassbender (no relation to Werner?)

Why do people think he's gay? I know there's been rumors about him, but he's had the same girlfriend for 10 years. He's also retired now, so if he was gay, why would he bother bearding and staying in the closet?
