German actors gossips?

We have noce thread about french cinema gossips, and I need one about Germany. August Diehl, Daniel Bruhl, Max Riemelt and all the rest. You can add Christoph Waltz, even though he is from Austria.

I’ve been following hottie pocket-twink Jannik Schümann ever since I saw him in “Center of My World”. I don’t read German, but his social media accounts don’t seem to indicate any romantic ladies in his life. And he’s heavy into musical theater. Hope he’s family.

Bruhl is excellent in “The Alienist” and I’m amazed at how much work he’s getting in high profile U.S. projects—very rare for a German actor in this day and age.

I wish I had some gossip on him, but all I know right now is that I like him in everything I’ve seen him in so far, and I’m really happy for his (unexpected) success.

Daniel Brühl is extremely career driven from what I read about him. He is the top of a new crop of actors and producers in Germany that plans their resume for practically decades ahead. He is part of a network that is very much committed to economics in movie and TV which I think is in strong contrast to the traditional European actors' approach. Actors in Germany (or all Europe really) are usually all about "interesting gigs" or just getting any sort of work. Daniel Brühl has business acumen, has a profile as producer and even as director I think. Having said this, he will not have any scandal derail his career. He is married with a kid, gay friendly but not gay. If he is gay or bi, he will not make it public as it would probably be an obstacle for him to be successful.

From 1997 to 2000 openly gay Laurent Daniels played a gay character on a German daily soap called Gute Zeiten Schlechte Zeiten (Good Times Bad Times - adapted from the Netherlands I believe). But to this day he deeply regrets to commit to the show, because he couldn't find any more acting gigs, because he was on a soap and his singing career tanked, too. Only recently he got a bit of a comeback going after he re-invented himself.

Jochen Schropp is gay. My roommate when I first moved here had nothing nice to say about him because (according to my ex-roommate) he's a sloppy drunk who flirts with other guys' boyfriends.

At the moment, my friends are questioning Roy Peter Link, currently on "In aller Freundschaft – Die jungen Ärzte." It's an ok series. Don't know if he's secretive like Riz Ahmed but he ended a relationship with a girl in 2014. I suspect it's wishful thinking, but he would definitely be catnip to some posters who are into his type.

Hmm... Matthias Schweighöfer ist immer wieder im Gespräch und wurde schon genannt- zwar verheiratet aber soll auch gerne mal gelegentlich was mit Männern haben.

Jo Weil (Oliver aus Verbotene Liebe) pingt total für mich, aber vielleicht ist mein gaydar ja einfach auch nur kaputt. Thore Schölermann (Christian aus Verbotene Liebe) pingt hingegen bei mir nicht. Scheint aber mit Jochen Schropp befreundet zu sein, also wer weiß....

Daniel Brühl - nach wie vor keine Meinung zu ihm. Pingt nicht bei mir.

Max Riemelt: tolle Rollen in Sense8 und Freier Fall. Ich vermute hetero.

Ansonsten nur die üblichen Verdächtigen: Marco Schreyl (glass closetted), Jochen Bendel (out).

I'll translate for him.

Matthias Schweighöfer is constantly discussed. Despite being married, he'd probably still have fun with guys.

Jo Weil does ping, and he's hot when he has facial hair.

When I can remember the name of the show, I'll come back. It's about a female doctor or vet on an island, and there's another doctor on this show who has eyes like Eric Dane. I don't have a specific type or race preference, but he's one I'd put in the wishful thinking category.

OK -- I'll try it in English ;-)

It's hard for me to give any informations about German actors because I barely watch German TV anymore...

Matthias Schweighöfer is rumoured to have fligs with guys occacionally despite being married to a woman.

Jo Weil (Oliver from Forbidden love -- German soap) pings for me. Thore Schölermann (Christian from Forbidden Love) doesn't ping but he is friends with Jochen Schropp who is confirmed gay so who knows...

Daniel Brühl - still no real opinion about him. He just doesn't ping for me but I might be wrong, of course.

Max Riemelt: great actor and great roles in Sense8 and Free Fall. But I'm assuming he is straight.

Besides them only the usual suspects: Marco Schreyl (glass closetted) and Jochen Bendel (out) (both are TV presenters).

There's only been a handful of German gay homoerotic films. I know this only because I've asked repeatedly to help learn the language. There's a store in the neighborhood that has a section for gay titles but most are international with German audio or subtitles. "Coming In" is more comedy than romance starring Kostja Ullman, the dark-haired guy who played opposite the blond in Sommersturm. But I seem to remember a shower scene or two that weren't particularly gratuitous. He's a pocket straight with a stereotypical pretty blond wife who also does something in the biz.

There is much less gossip about celebs in Germany than in the US, and people are much more careful and reserved in gossiping on the internet; but of course German celebs can't always not be much part of gossip and Germany has to try to become a bit more independent from American entertainment industry; German celebs have never sued a poster on the internet, and it would be unwise to do so for them, but generally people are much more careful in what they write on the internet in Germany, and German media pretends everyone famous &co is straight.

I read some gay rumors about Florian David Fitz and about Simon Verhoeven, his mother is Senta Berger who had a short Hollywood career and a big career in Germany and internationally, his father is a successful director, whose father was a director, legend, as well. Rosa von Praunheim is an openly gay director, modern legend, and he outed Götz George, a famous German macho actor, don't know if he said mostly gay or gay, George sued, his father was a legend. A film critic who worked for respectable regional papers told a friend of mine 20 years ago, that if you want to make it in German movies, you just have to offer your behind, he named director Detlev Buck as someone quite into the gay casting couch, he was e.g. important for the careers of David Kross, who had Hollywood movies with Kate Winslet and Spielberg, and Till Schweiger, who looked like a rent boy, when starting out. I guess his attraction to women is real, but I read some gossip on German gay site, that he was with his boyfriend at a party with the poster. Christoph Maria Herbst played the German 'Office' lead, he sounded kinda out at the beginning of his career, does have girlfriends since then, but I guess they aren't real relationships, his present one is very dykey, and before that he was with an actress who has a child with the guy from E.T. An actor said in a late night show he was on a cruise and actor Gedeon Burkhard was there with a lady boy, is I think also friends with Roland Emmerich, as is actor Hannes Jaenicke, environmentalist and childless; Ralf Bauer, childless as well, relationships with women seemed a bit fake.

Sascha Hehn, pretty sure at least bi, childless, does have relationships with women though of course. Important producer Nico Hofmann no relationships with women public, Oliver Berben, had his first producing job, or one of his first in the gay sitcom Bewegte Männer, after a comic of the gay author Ralf König, artists tend to be more real at the beginning of their career, his mother is successful actress Iris Berben, he looks semitic and she was in Israel for a a pretty long time before he was born, she never disclosed the father of her son, there are rumors it is Israel singer Abi Ofarim; Oliver Berben presents himself as a womanizer, and the media does, and I guess it's true, he might have used and use the gay casting couch quite a bit with his actors though, famous producer Bernd Eichinger half-jewish (as well), probably also gay casting-couch type, Helmut Dietl presented himself as straight, they all do, guess he used gay casting couch quite a bit as well. Thomas Fritsch, was German voice of Russell Crowe, Jeremy Irons, William Hurt, and had many other voice roles, but also a big career in German acting, is openly bi; Clemens Schick, was in Casino Royale, Bond #1 with Craig, came out as gay after his main success was over. A friend of mine interned in a main theatre in Bonn 20 years ago and she said the male actors were all gay or had another problem. Marc Waschke, guess gay or bi, Oliver Hasenfratz, I guess died of AIDS, I guess gay; Benno Fürmann, in an interview I saw, he kinda admitted to being attracted to men, I guess bi, maybe gay, Matthieu Carriere admitted in a talkshow to being attracted to men, presents himself as bi and straight, Hape Kerkeling openly gay, had some movies with former lover, who is a writer; Sebastian Koch, guess gay or bi. And then there was and is the pervy problem

I won't answer to questions, I never do that on dl and similar sites

Ah yes, I just checked IMDb, it's the same guy I was thinking of (I had misremembered - he was the screenwriter on the Tobias Schenke film as well, not the director).

Not sure if anoyne's pervy enough to be interested, but both Louis Hofmann and Tobias Schenke did quite lurid (though nudity-free) straight rape scenes on German tv; I'll put up links if anyone would like to see them.

Is Moritz Blebitreu a gay? He has the perfect ass for plowing! He also looks very Italian or Jewish for a German of Austrian descent. I love his look.

Why has Lars Eidinger shown an erection in like five mainsteam films?

And he does Richard III frontally nude on stage.

Is he just a huge exhibitionist?

Any gossip on Nina Hoss and Ronald Zehrfeld? I think they are both amazing actors( Phoenix, Barbara, etc) but I can't find many English language sources on them in terms of personal info.

All German actors are expected to go nude in one scene in every movie and TV show.

It is expected; it is normal.

by Anonymousreply 12710/20/2018

But not only Germans, Italians do it as well.

R122 He is straight, but played convincing a gay role when he was very young in "Wir zusammen allein mit dir" [no english title for that, sorry] Loved him in that small movie and still love his deep voice.

R5 German and Austrian are basically the same ethnicity. That actor looks very Slavic or Eastern European but he's from what was then East Germany when he was born so that's why.

What do we know about Ftanz Hartwig?

I just binge watched Pagans Peak/ Der Pass which is the German-Austrian take and a tweaked version of The Scandi Bridge goes alpine and snowbound. Loved it (any German dish on how that went down in Germany with success for a further series btw?)

Anyways - there's not much on Franz's IMDB page, yet he comes out of nowhere with a third wheel charactisation role + impresses somehow humanizing a stone cold psychopath.

I want to see more of him - but he doesn't seem to have anything slated after Der Pass.

Any info from our Deitsche Freunde bitte?

R140 You might enjoy the work of Christian Petzold (Phoenix, Barbara, Yella , Jerichow ). He's a tremendous talent . I still haven't seen his newest film, Transit , but am looking for to it as it received very good reviews.

I’ve long wanted to see Phoenix as I had tickets at a film festival but decided not to go at the last minute. Thanks for the rec, r141.
