I'm curious, Richard was a friend of Sam Smith? Because otherwise, I don't understand why Sam was so petty about it. They broke up a long time ago, it's not like Brandon cheated on him with Richard.

R109 and R112 exactly. He met Brandon oct/nov. (that’s when they start commenting on each other’s social) Maybe he and Ellie were on the rocks. They had a 10 year age difference, maybe she wanted to focus more on work, maybe he wanted to move to LA all the way back then, it could have been anything. They break up and he and Brandon get together in December. (Someone here in the older thread said Brandon was in Scotland for NYE, but I didn’t see that confirmed anywhere. There are photos of him and his dad at a pub...) Brandon is with him and his parents at the Critics Choice. All that being said. It seems as though both relationships were/are genuine, but we’ll never really know, it seems.

R129 has he liked anything? I haven't seen it. He only posted, hasn't been on a liking spree, from what I can see.

Besides, how much can be read into him liking or not liking Brandon's pics? I feel like he liked his last two in the aftermath of the explosion on social media about them probably to indicate that he wasn't turning tail and running a mile from whatever friendship or relationship they do have just because people are now talking about it, but up until then he wasn't liking any of his pics he's been posting, and we know whatever relationship they have has been going strong, so that wasn't an indicator of anything.

R142, but was she ever with Richard? They never followed each other SM (not that it matters) and she was spotted with Diego Luna not long after that. And the movie Ellie and Suki filmed was Pride and Prejudice and Zombies which was filmed back in 2015. Does that mean Suki bearded for Luna and is doing so for Pattinson now? R131, my thought is Brandon would be better off keeping it platonic with RM and be with someone who doesn’t need to hide the relationship.

by Anonymousreply 14304/12/2019

R91: I find a little tiresome the trashing of Brandon. It's curious that everytime there's something involving an openly gay celebrity and someone who is not openly gay is the openly gay the one who ends bashed.

Brandon is a young actor popular for being in Netfilx biggest hit, he is not an instagramer or a youtuber and he is not a kardashian who sells his life. As a lot of young people he shows himself on social media. He is out when most gay actors of his age are in the closet or openly bearding, just only for that he deserves some respect

by Anonymousreply 14404/12/2019

Exactly, r143. Brandon deserves so much better. Hiding would contradict coming out in the first place, and I don't think he would be for it (assuming they are a 𝘳𝘦𝘢𝘭 item).

by Anonymousreply 15404/12/2019

With all this new info and Brandon not really hiding the relationship anymore, how can people still doubt that they're together? It's so obvious! I wonder if they both agreed to "go public" with those pap pics, like... it was planned in a way that they blew the closet door open and didn't want to hide anymore, in case people spotted them together. Also, they were smart in doing it ambiguously. Like, they didn't go overboard with the affection, so the most delusional fangirls will still believe they're "just friends" if they get spotted together again. This way they can spend time together without worrying what people might think. I doubt this means Richard will come out, but I do think it was sort of a middle ground for them, a compromise of sorts. Brandon would prefer to be totally out with his significant other, considering he's out himself, while Richard is still in the closet so would probably prefer to keep it a secret. It makes sense.

He also is someone who likes to leave comments on people's posts on IG and yet except for at the beginning he's been strangely silent when it comes to Richard's posts. So to go from all of that to this whatever it is where he can't even hold his hand in public and to get called his pal seems like it would be hard. The dick must be mighty good but I wonder how long he'll be willing to basically hide in Richard's closet with him.

R154 Jeremy is the editor/creator of Mr. Porter. He and RM have been friends a while and used to own the big country house where RM and Douglas went for the summer in those other photos linked in the old threads.

Brandon is really cute and easily one of the best things about 13RW. He'll continue to have a lowkey career and ride those Netflix coattails for a few years at least. Y'all are haters.

R148 I don't have anything bad to say about him except I just found out who he is. When I looked up his IMDB couldn't believe he hasn't really been in much except that Netflix show which I have no interest in. He doesn't seem very ambitious. Instead of following Richard around like a puppy maybe he should be trying to audition.

I don’t think RM’s ex-girlfriends were beards. Could be he’s bi, but it’s also possible he’s still trying to figure things out himself.

A friend of mine’s dad (now deceased) married and had two sons the old-fashioned, penis-in-vagina way before he came out and left his wife. I’m not sure how old he was at the time, but it happens.

And just a couple months ago, my former boss left her husband for another woman. I was so slow to catch on... I’d seen her and her girlfriend out on the town a few times, and the she even introduced us. But it wasn’t until, as they were walking past me at the farmer’s market one day, the girlfriend put her arm around Tina’s waist that a lightbulb went off in my head. I jumped on her FB page and did some snooping, found tons of pictures of her and the gf but none of the husband, and where her profile used to say married it now said “taken,” and she’s in her mid-30s with a kid, too. So, stranger things have happened.

I’d be surprised if RM fully came out, though. Maybe he’ll be more comfortable if/when he officially becomes an A lister in Hollywood. Either that, or his career starts to slide and he no longer cares about hiding.

R148 I'm pretty sure he got cast in 13RW almost straight out of college or drama school or wherever he had been. And you can see why, watching it- he may not have much professional experience but he's a damn good actor. The show itself may be all over the place in terms of quality but his performance certainly isn't. He's one of the best of the young cast and has been repeatedly singled out for praise of his portrayal of a character that can't be easy to play.

I have a question for those who believe that R90 pic from Critics' Choice Awards after party proves that R & B were a couple already in January and that they came together to London where a week later RM won at the National Television Awards. If so, how come another very cute guy was with Richard at that NTA event? He got overexcited when RM won, was all over him, almost kissed him making R slightly sweetly embarrassed. R had more logical options for his guest that night if he was already dating Brandon but wanted to keep it under radar: 1) to come with his PR team only (pretty blond lady proved quite suitable for tabloids "mysterious women"), 2) bring a female friend / actress and let tabs do their guessing, 3) bring a family member etc. What does not make much sense to me, if R & B were already dating at the time, is to bring another handsome male friend (not even close?) and fellow actor - but publicly not widely known as either. Interestingly, the guy was wiped out from tabloid reports though he could have been 'mysterious man' - especially after his intimate reaction. The most likely explanation is that R & B were not dating at the time in January (no clue about now). Brandon might have easily come to R90 after party on his own, run into R (who he already met before) and his folks, clicked well, got into pic etc. No evidence that they flew to London together either, right?

r182 Because if you want to see a friend, you can? He also had some other male friends with him, as per instagram. Richard only flew in to attend and he took the first flight out, skipping the after party, to go back. Just because he was possibly dating Brandon doesn't mean he can't ever see male friends again. What kind of logic is this?

by Anonymousreply 18704/12/2019

R181 I think back then, there were very little rumors about his sexuality, so I don’t think the gay baiting scenario was an issue. He had just broken up with Ellie a few weeks prior. If I recall, the photo with the dog and the article that he was moving to LA that specifically mentioned Brandon were the first links people had on twitter/ig/here of their friendship or relationship and that was sometime end of February/early March. The necklace/photo at critics choice/playlist (if legit)/Instagram habits were all discovered later and put together, indicating a longer relationship. Maybe Andrew was the only one who could go? I think R flew right back out for the SAG awards. Maybe he wasn’t going to originally attend?

R184 Alisha whatsherface is in the “desert”. So maybe she’s at Coachella? The band that Brandon and Richard went to the party for (wallows) is playing on Saturday and Idris is performing on Saturday. So maybe...

About the theory that Brandon and Richard’s walk with the cigarettes had to be a pap stroll because they were clearly paparazzi photos, I’ve been wondering- does anyone think it’s possible the pizza pictures came first? Because I’ve been doing a bit of research, and apparently Kate and Jamie are papped a lot. Like, a LOT. Kate, in particular. I’ve no idea whether they’re calling them themselves or there’s more value in photos of Kate Mara and Jamie Bell than I would have thought, but yeah- a LOTTA photos of them out there. And I haven’t been able to track down an exact date for either sets of photos on an actual paparazzi photos site. I just wonder whether the paparazzi photographed Brandon and Richard with them first, maybe not even realising what possible story there was there, and then when they did went after them and got the “stroll” pics. The pizza pics were certainly floating around online for at least a day before the tabloids picked them up, maybe even around the same time as the other set. (Wasn’t clear when they were put up though.) I don’t know. I don’t even necessarily believe it myself, it’s just a theory.

I just remember those pap photos of them kissing. Brandon wasn't into Sam at all. I still think the entire relationship was for publicity and fame. This is also why some people are saying Brandon is a fame whore. He went into that relationship for all the wrong reasons. Flash forward to this relationship and there's a huge difference. Brandon seems very fond of Richard. You can tell by his heart eyes. Also, there's no way in hell he would enter a relationship with a closeted star if all he wanted was fame (unlike what happened with Sam). I think the relationship with Madden is legit.

Relationships, especially celebrity relationships, are complicated. In public, they may present themselves as devoted, monogamous couple and in private they have a bearding arrangement, are swingers, have an open relationship, etc. I can't see Madden being an ass who cheats on his real girlfriend with a guy (either they had an understanding and / or he broke up with her as soon he realized he wanted something serious with Brandon).

The surprising thing is the fact that they kept their friendship a secret, Richard never liked Brandon's posts on ig except one in November, they never worked together, Richard said that he spent a lot of time in LA at the end of the year and fell in love with the place....and then the roommates thing and the pictures were really unexpected, they know each other for a few months but they seem too close and intimate to be just friends. Brandon has heart eyes and Richard touch him in a very possessive and affectionate way.

And Brandon is successful in his own, he's young and out, he's rumored to be in AHS, He was really into Sam, they spent a lot of time together.

It's a bit unfair to BF to say he "obviously" wasn't into Smith, was using him for fame and fortune etc. There were plenty of photos of the two of them where they looked very happy together, and he's never talked about him in any interviews or used his name for anything.

by Anonymousreply 30704/14/2019

Typical sign on fangurling is making up evidence like R296 did to strength up his obsession. I agree with R301 that exactly because there was no such evidence this turned big with general audience.

In the podcast the female host said something interesting that maybe represents straight people's perception: she finds the fact of them living together more intimate than them possibly fucking. Yes, people are intrigued with the gay-straight-bi riddle as always but in this case maybe more fascinated with R moving in with B, openly though lowkey, like the most natural thing to do.

With regards to the necklaces, they are the same brand (and before people jump down my throat, this is not to say they are or are not dating) but they are different pendants. We cannot really rule out what r295 is saying though. Dating or not, the speculation only needs to be out there for Bond producers to give him an audition and than have another reason to pass him over for another actor without widespread gay/bi whispering.

by Anonymousreply 32204/14/2019

To be clear I don’t see sharing glasses/shoes as necessarily proof they’re dating, but it’s interesting. If anything it does show they’re comfortable enough as “roommates” to be wearing each other’s stuff... and ties back to that podcast host talking about the intimacy of living together, which Richard with all his money really does not have to do.

No idea when this next one (with "NY's resolution") posted on January 4 was actually taken (by his 13RW costar). Richard was in LA on January 5 for the Golden Globe, his parents as well. He was also in LA mid December, but not sure how long he stayed nor where he was for NY. These facts make it very unlikely that Brandon was in Scotland for New Year.

Agree about CDAN. BlindGossip is in general much better gossip site, they are not vague like CDAN. Unfortunately, they were sloppy in their RM BI posted few days after he said he is not next Bond.

Pretty sure the blinds that have popped up that are obviously meant to be about RM are full of it. It's notable that they ONLY appeared AFTER the photos came out and social media started talking. As someone else said upthread, whether it's because he had his private life locked down tight or there simply wasn't much there to form the basis of any rumours, there was pretty much nothing out there about Richard possibly being bi or gay before this, no rumours, and definitely no hinting in blinds like they're doing now.

by Anonymousreply 33404/14/2019

R334 It was ‘who will come out in 2019’ thread and i don’t remember which part, but it was dated early March. Then there was the poster here (1st thread, I think) that spotted them “acting like a couple” in Feb at a restaurant in Franklin Village. Maybe that was the same poster? Saw them in February and posted in March. That was also around the time RM was walking the dog and BF started wearing the necklace.

by Anonymousreply 33504/14/2019

R330 I was the one who brought up Scotland NYE, further upthread.

Back when the first photo surfaced of Richard walking Brandon's dog, there were a bunch of fangirls talking about it on Instagram, wanting to know how they knew each other. Someone said they were friends and another person said, "Oh, that's right. Brandon spent NYE in Scotland with Richard." (Maybe not the exact quote but something to that effect. But there were a bunch of people speculating in the same thread that they were more than friends, and the Instagrammer who posted the pic got mad and deleted all the posts, then turned off commenting.

This is the photo it was posted on, but of course there is nothing there now. I also said upthread that, sadly, there were no receipts -- at least not anymore. Maybe the person who orginally posted that will pop up again on another photo.

(And if anyone wants to know how/why I know this, it's because I've been crushing on RM for years and cyber stalk him from time to time.)

A good example how pathetic fan fiction is. Can you point to the original poster, that girl on the photo? It does not make sense to me that B spends Christmas with his folks, then couple of days later flies to Scotland to be with R and his parents for NYE (where they there at all?) and flies back with them to LA couple of days later. It is physically possible but unlikely to me. Yet.

R349 She has also this similar quote on IG (a great passage). It can be interpreted differently. I am inclined to think it is related to their break up.

Maybe they would've broken up (RM and Ellie) regardless of whether he met BF or not. Also consider how young Ellie is she's probably focused on her career than starting family, something RM might be thinking about at 35.

I think that's the main reason bi men end up with women; it's easier to start a family in a hetero arrangement. Ellie was likely career focused so he went with the next best thing in BF even if he isn't family focused either. But if Ellie were open to having children soon then she and RM probably would've decided to work on the relationship and stay together.

R381 Brandon is easily the best thing about 13 Reasons Why. He brings a depth and vulnerability to his character, despite that the show is basically just a teenaged soap opera. (It's not necessarily a bad show. I think someone earlier described it best as "uneven.") And I'd never have guessed he was gay from watching the show, though. It's funny that there are a ton of gay characters on the show and he's one of a handful of straight ones, lol.

Richard is very likely bi (no, i dont think all his past relationships were beards so he's bi or straight) and it would be great to have that representation if he decides to come out. Who are other bi actors? Alan Cumming and?

Did you have any reservations about the show's racier scenes? I've always got the attitude that if it's relevant to the show, I don't mind doing it, but if it's just gratuitous, I don't really agree with it. If it's just trying to get people to watch because there's some boobs or whatever, I don't really like that. But in this, it felt relevant that I had to take my clothes off and kiss guys on-screen. That was a different thing for me, playing a gay character. That's why I quite liked the part, because Ashley is this gay man who isn't defined by his sexuality. I think too much of what we see just goes back to that Queer As Folk thing and being defined by your sexuality. We're halfway through the first episode before we find out my character is gay, and I like that because it's a really laddish relationship [between him, Stuart and Rachid]."

So is Ashley a gay man who dislikes gay culture? "Yeah. He's a gay character who's kind of straight in every sense of the word, except that he has sex with men. That's what I was excited by, because I don't remember the last time we saw that on British TV. We don't really get to see gay characters who are completely open with their sexuality, but it doesn't define who they are."

R395 Eh, he used to spend a lot of time with Smith too, with plenty of travelling to be with him too. Seems to be the type that doesn't mind making the effort for his guy. And it's more possible for him than many- he's young, no commitments tying him down apart from his dog when he's not filming, has plenty of money. Maybe it did feel worth it to him if he wanted to ring in the New Year with his new guy!

by Anonymousreply 41704/15/2019

They met in October and in December they were already close to each other to spend NYE together, they kept the fact that they were "friends" a secret until the press started to say they were "roommates". They started to live together in February, it doesn't look like a hook up, they are in love. I'm curious to see if Richard is going to bring him to the Rocketman premiere!

by Anonymousreply 41804/15/2019

R417 I would think it would be QUITE unlikely for Brandon to make a flying trip to Scotland for New Year's and have it be nothing to do with Richard, not when they had been getting close since Oct or Nov, he had no other reason to be there that we know of, and, as you say, she mentions meeting RM at a later date so he clearly frequents the area she met Brandon in too. They may or may not have been together when she bumped into Brandon but it DOES look like he was there to spend time with Richard.

(Oh, and you're right about twitter search- it is NOTORIOUSLY unreliable nowadays and has actually been for a while. It used to be a lot better, but these days it's really poor.

We've been over this a hundred times already in these threads, R464. Newspapers, and even tabloids, don't generally just call anyone "sex mates" or "fuck buddies" or even "lovers" WITHOUT official confirmation from them or at least a "verified source close to the couple".

I've lost count of how many times waiters come up to my dad and sister and assume my sister and dad are a "couple", calling them "partners". It's so gross and cringe.

Questioning whether one is "a male" or "a female" (Smith's own words) is not "questioning gender identity" - it's questioning one's biological sex, R485. Biological sex is not "assigned", it's observed and objectively verified if necessary.

When Smith hits 50 and starts going for his regular prostate exam - he'll do so because he is and always will be a male (regardless of how he "identifies" in his fantasies), because males have a significant risk of prostate cancer and therefore need prostate checks.

Huh. I wasn't aware of this. Richard's friend Jeremy Langmead -- the one who owns the beautiful home in Sussex that Brandon commented about on Instagram -- used to be married to a woman. They had a couple of kids, divorced, and now he's remarried to a man.

Given that Brandon had asked Jeremy if that was the view where he'll be staying, it's presumed that he'll be staying there with Richard ... at the lovely English countryside home of a middle-aged married gay couple, where they can sleep late, brunch together and take romantic strolls through the garden ...

At this point if there is anyone left in this thread who's still insisting that Richard is 100% straight and is bringing his gay but totally platonic friend on vacation with him to hang with other gay couples, I'd say you're in deep denial.

Who else but a wealthy gay man would let a country house to Madden. Isn't that how most actors get perks - from rich older gay benefactors? Madden owes his current gig to rich gay men as well (Elton and Furnish).

Richard Madden Says 'There’s No Difference' Between Filming Sex Scenes With Male and Female Co-Stars" ALYSSA MORIN | Mon., Apr. 15, 2019 1:33 PM

[quote]Just last week, the two were seen taking a stroll in L.A. The Bodyguard actor had his arm wrapped around Flynn's neck, while the Netflix star had his arm on Richard's waist. However, both stars have yet to address the rumors about them.

If nothing else, Brandon is making some nice connections to the rich British gay circle through this affair. Those Eldergays must be loving the juicy gossip.

Eonline openly floating them as a couple r521. It's really obvious how their teams are okay with this speculation, likely planned it.

It's kind of like a version of CMBYN in real life. Older bi closeted guy + young gay guy. And it might end like that, too. Older guy leaves and marries for his career.

You queens are really reaching. He looks NOTHING like Caulfield, R529.

R509 It's definitely true that Brandon posted that picture and later deleted it. I can't tell you the dates he put it up or took it down or anything, and I have no idea about the Sam Smith nasty comments thing, but I DO remember when he posted it, because it was weird to see two actors I liked but would NEVER have thought would run in the same circles hanging out. I remember I was like- "what the hell, how do those two even KNOW each other?!" out loud to someone with me. At the time I think I just figured it must be some sort of Netflix connection. I never realised he'd taken it down until I saw comments about it recently and went to check.

I keep telling you that this was something planned, they knew the paps were there, now Richard is free to like his boyfriend's post, I bet Richard is going to bring Brandon to one of the premieres of Rocketman. They are not denying it, their pr team let E! online write about the speculation so they want people to know. They will probably appear together without making it a big deal!

R512 yes, I too was quite surprised that he was married to a woman...he has such a gay face; the husband looks butcher. The ex wife seems like a ‘sturdy’ opinionated lass, the kind I could see a young gay man getting close to. Weird that these fey men who work I fashion still go through the motions of being closeted. I only recently learnt that jasper conran was married to a woman when he was younger.

by Anonymousreply 54304/16/2019

Quite a few older gay rich Brits (especially those who have, or want, county estates and manors) married women because those women had money $$$.

by Anonymousreply 54404/16/2019

R543, not that surprising once you look at Jeremy Langmead’s ex-wife’s (India Knight’s) illustrious connections. She was no classical beauty (chubby, double chin), but her Rolodex probably made up for it:

“She was born to a family related to one of the leaders of the Indian independence movement, and the family of Belgian statesman Henri Jaspar.

India's mother re-married a family friend, the [super-wealthy multi-millionaire] architect Norman Foster [who headed the design of the iconic Gherkin skyscraper in London, the restoration of the Reichstag in Berlin].”

No wonder her married her. I doubt it was sexual on his end, it was probably opportunistic. She’s a high-society’s catch. She’s now re-married to a former member of British Parliament.

I guess it's true what they say, that Brits age fast? Must be all that drinking, and the usually fair skin doesn't do well with sun. Does Richard smoke? That is also terrible for your skin. PS: I think Richard looks hot, but yeah, there's no denying he has aged rapidly in just a few years. He should really take better care of himself, otherwise he will look like a 50 year old when he reaches his late 30s.

by Anonymousreply 54804/16/2019

They probably met each other through Finn Jones. He was seen promoting his own netflix show together with Brandon and his 13rw costars, there are many pics of them together in diff events and of course Finn knows Richard because of GOT.

I believe it was love at first sight, Richard started to stalk him on ig as soon as he met him and then he started to follow him, it's funny because I read someone say they thought that it was Brandon that had a crush on Richard because he was liking all of his posts and they didn't think anything about it because they believed Richard was straight.

rumors of matching necklaces and spotify playlists aside, the most telling sign of a relationship other than the pap shots is definitely that they travelled to england together to see Richard's friend in a play, who brings their short-term roommate from LA to London. and those Instagram comments hinting Brandon will be travelling to england again to stay with Richard's friend

My prediction is that they’ll eventually get bolder about being seen as a couple in public. (And yeah, that includes the Rocketman premiere.) I’d be surprised if Richard ever made any comment to the press about it, though. He’s never talked about his love life before so it’s unlikely he’d start now.

by Anonymousreply 57204/16/2019

I hate to say it, but I kind of think it's setting yourself up to be disappointed if you expect Brandon to go to the Rocketman premiere with Richard. I honestly don't think they could do it in a low-key way. Or rather- no matter how low-key THEY might be, the media would make it into a big thing, 10 times bigger than just pictures of them walking down a road together. That's not how Richard operates. He never has, and I doubt he wants to start now. (Don't get me wrong- I'd LOVE to end up being wrong about this. I just think expectations need to be managed.)

Also- I just wonder will HE even be able to make it to Cannes? I saw someone point out that it may end up clashing with 1917 filming which will be happening throughout April and May, and which he MUST be due to start working on soon.

by Anonymousreply 57304/16/2019

would richard be invited to the MET gala do you think?

by Anonymousreply 57404/16/2019

R574 Quite possibly. He's attended before, and he made a reference to it in an interview pretty recently, musing about possibly wearing a suit they had had as an option on the accompanying photoshoot to it or something. But again- 1917 filming may clash.

by Anonymousreply 57504/16/2019

Yeah I really doubt they’ll be appearing on any red carpets together. Maybe they both attend and arrive separately, but that’s as far as I think they’d go.

by Anonymousreply 57604/16/2019

I don’t know though ... it would be different if he had a smaller part (hehe) in the film, but Richard is one of THE main stars of that film. You’d think he’d be able to work something out so that he could get away for a day/night to attend the premier.

R589 True. That’s also why the two of them attended the Elton John concert together, and that’s why they flew to London to attend a play together there. That’s also why they go to gallery openings and parties together and go out to eat together and do their shopping together. Man, these poor guys need more friends to hang out with!
