Jonathan Taylor Thomas turns 37 Today

This makes me feel old.

by Anonymousreply 13410/12/2018

His Wild America costar Devon Sawa, just turned 40 yesterday.

He’s channeling Billie Jean King.

Is he homosexual?

by Anonymousreply 409/08/2018

I can remember when he was rumored to be gay, and rumored to be coming out of the closet. Then his agent said, "Sorry, just kidding. I think you all got confused because JTT was in a movie where he played the role of a gay teen who came out of the closet. He's not really gay."

So now he's 37 years old and never married or had a girlfriend. And he's still living off those Home Improvement residuals.

He just seems so uninterested in anything - he'll be single forever.

He also played a gay character in the TV movie Common Ground. I remember JTT fans such were excited to see him in a speedo (he also played a swimmer). Not sure if his character in Speedway Junky was gay or not. It's been years since I've seen it. After that, he had a guest or recurring role on Smallville and then nothing else after that for many years. I did catch his guest appearance on Last Man Standing by accident.

[QUOTE]I wonder when he lost his anal cherry.

I think I read on that Zachary Ty Bryan took it around Season 4 of Home Improvement during a party at Tim Allen’s house. He couldn’t resist Jonathan any longer and cornered him in an upstairs bathroom. Zachary came up behind Jonathan and wrapped his muscular arms around him, breathing in the scent of Jonathan’s freshly shampooed hair before kissing down the side of his neck. And you can imagine where it went from there.

How the author of the article knew all these details, I have no idea.

Me too. I wonder if he knows that he turned so many adolescents gay lol. I still love pocket gays until this day. JTT was also very laid back and it made him even more appealing

All of the “straight” characters he played were in the closet, or at least seemed to be with JTT playing them.

by Anonymousreply 4409/09/2018

R43 Actually... come to think of it, I think some of that public attitude of his rubbed off on me. I was too lanky, socially anxious, and nerdy to pull it off, but it stayed in my values as I matured. Its very easy for me to just shrug and smile at things now, and it seems (and is proven sometimes) to attract some other people to me. Huh, this is all enlightening me.

by Anonymousreply 5209/09/2018

JTT identifies as Christian. It is a German name and I know many Weisses that are not Jewish. Or he had a Jewish ancestor where he got his name from and that was it. I remember reading articles about him going To church or supported Christian organizations or something like that. Anyway I logged on to say that perhaps the reason he doesn’t do anything anymore is that the rampant abuse that the child stars went through in the 80s and 90s has soured him up industry. I don’t know if he ever was photograph by Bob Villard but I remember some pretty sketchy pictures of him when he was a teen magazines that would never be published today. While I think some actors do you fall into a drug spiral I think a lot of them just leave and don’t go back to Hollywood. CB Barnes Who is in a lot of stuff in the 80s and 90s reply directly to a Twitter post to Corey Feldman saying that while he is not going to talk about it he was abused to as they all were and they were just commodities and not people. I remember seeing his stuff and really thinking he was a good actor. It is super sad and depressing to think what they went through

R53 what sketchy pics of JTT were there? I remember he was all over the teen mags in the 90's and the pics were usually with dogs, cats, various other animals, sports equipment, cars, etc. but nothing weird like Brad Renfro for example- who was often topless lying around somewhere.

Or the Noah Hathaway ones like r57 mentioned. Those were not cool.

by Anonymousreply 5909/09/2018

To clarify- I'm not looking for sketchy pics, but I can't remember seeing any of this kid (and I was all about teen mags in the 90's- my babysitter would bring them over and I'd look at them all. Loved Joey and Matthew Lawrence the most). His mom was a known stage-mom and a bit overprotective and I can't imagine she'd let him do creepy photoshoots.

Noah Hathaway Was photographed by Bob Villard. I wondered what happened to him but apparently He sustained a pretty serious injuries of the movie that eventually led to a drug addiction or something like that. He is covered in tattoos and looks nothing like he did when he was younger or what you would’ve thought he would’ve grown into. His claim to fame now is pulling out of 80s shows. I wouldn’t be surprised if he ODs. The pictures that Bob took of him should’ve gotten him arrested. He did it in Germany or at the time the age of consent is 14. They are definitely pictures that should’ve Got him on some police radar

R72 same. I also thought JTT was going to go far as an actor. Or be very successful outside the industry because he was very smart and always talking about getting a good education to have something to 'fall back on'.

But from what I recall he went to Harvard around 2000, did a semester at st. Andrews in Scotland, but didn't graduate Harvard and ended up transferring to Columbia and graduating there in like 2009. Maybe it was for a grad degree, but I don't think so. I guess he really liked school and took a long ass time to get his BA.

I guess you can do that when you're rich and don't have to work.

by Anonymousreply 7709/09/2018

JTT's involved... with some... company or something. He's on a board somewhere. Sorry for being vague, but I can't remember it. It was mentioned on another JTT thread. I think it's still film related though.

If I remember correctly Jonathan Brandis, although several years older, was popular at the same time. I definitely believe these two were abused. Brandis Was the only child and two wasps from Connecticut. They probably cannot even comprehend it will be into think about what was really going on. JTT Was being photographed and in those teen magazines and who knows what else he was around. I don’t think Tim Allen abused it were anything but the more I’m reading about it it seems to be more like crew members or tutors doing this stuff.

The only child From two Wasps in Connecticut. It makes no sense that he hung himself while he out with friends. Who knows with that poor kid was dealing with . I definitely believe once they get older and those pedos discard them They need an amazing support system and a pile of money where they don’t really need to workto get out from that

Someone mentioned Joey Lawrence And his brothers. Joey file for bankruptcy and one of his brothers looked like he was out of faces of Meth although that was a couple of years ago. Ricky Schroeder Married a Mormon while he was really young at all though they got divorced recently he seems to be one of the few 80s teen stars that her ok. Jodie Foster of course wins that overall. FFS I hope this is wrong read but I read Wesley from Mr Belvedere was abused by producers.

by Anonymousreply 8609/09/2018

Gay anti-choicers are strange. He voiced a “fetus that was about to be aborted” for a commercial? Creepy shit. Must be his Amish family values. Although, the Amish treat gays terribly so you’d think he’d have rejected all those conservative Christian values and become a “Hollywood liberal.” ...unless he was sexually abused or exposed to abuse while working in LA.

Qwerty gave a few clues to his identity, like a blind item, and they narrowed down the possibilities to a couple of young (at the time) actors. He never confirmed it either way.

As for him being anti-choice, he was very young when he made that PSA and was possibly put up to it by a parent. You can't extrapolate his political beliefs from something he did as a child that may not have been his idea.

You can see a vague similarity in looks.

I remember in some HI episodes the jokes would make a point of emphasising how, in spite of their divergent personal politics, their personalities lined up too (like saying exactly the same phrases at different times and so on).
