I'm a 49-ish lesbian dating a much older closet lesbian in the Entertainment Indutry. I know it's part of her job to be photographed with everyone else and happy at all times. I often see her pictured with other actors . . . I think exploiting the fact that she's closeted and probably thinking they're the stud that's gonna change her. Anyway, I'm in a ton of pain seeing all of these men kissing and groping her. Does anyone have any insight that might help me?

by anonymousreply 27512/31/2013

First, of course, you have to tell us who it is.

by anonymousreply 106/08/2010

And, second, you have to give up the notion that a 'stud' feels like 'changing' a woman over the age of 49.

by anonymousreply 206/08/2010

You're 49 and the celebrity you're supposedly dating is "much older"? Well, that certainly narrows it down.

by anonymousreply 306/08/2010


by anonymousreply 406/08/2010

[quote]Anyway, I'm in a ton of pain seeing all of these men kissing and groping her. Just look at it from the point of view that she's doing a job, an acting job.

by anonymousreply 506/08/2010

I hope Holland Taylor is worth it, OP.

by anonymousreply 606/08/2010

This. Never. Happened.

by anonymousreply 706/08/2010

She's fucking Barbara Bush!

by anonymousreply 806/08/2010

Studs are groping a woman who is much older than 49? If that is the case, I would think most of the audience thinks it is for show.

by anonymousreply 906/08/2010

OP is obviously dating Catherine Zeta Jones.

by anonymousreply 1006/08/2010

taxi for Joan Collins

taxi for Joan Collins

by anonymousreply 1106/08/2010

Debbie Reynolds is the only other name besides Holand Taylor I can come up with.

by anonymousreply 1206/08/2010

what in the hell is OP?

by anonymousreply 1306/08/2010

Jessica Tandy is not dead. She wunk at me at the corner of 10th Street and Broadway.

by anonymousreply 1406/08/2010

What exactly did you think this post was going to get you, OP?

This is the fucking DL perfect storm of nasty responses.

Lesbians, unidentified closet gay, and adive for pathetic personal problems.

Oh, jesus. Sorry, op. Mother go back to being dead.

by anonymousreply 1606/08/2010

Please let it be Catherine Deneuve. Please let it be Catherine Deneuve. Please let it be Catherine Deneuve.

by anonymousreply 1706/08/2010

it's nancy reagan

by anonymousreply 1806/08/2010

Actually, [R5] gave me some practical advice - Thank you for that. All the others were funny, and [R15] has a ton of unresolved issues himself.

by anonymousreply 1906/08/2010

This type of conversation leads me to wonder:

Would I date Jake Gyllenhall (or whoever) if I knew it had to be on the sly?

Probably, but I think it would get old fast and the first time I saw macking on some girl at a party or something.......well, that'd be the end.

by anonymousreply 2006/08/2010

A friend confided in me yesterday that she has been dating a politician. My friend just got out of a six year relationship and wasn't looking for anyone. Well, this woman, who has never dated a woman before or even slept with one, perused her, and told my friend that if need be she would "come out" and be honest about the relationship. Well, yesterday my friend said the woman told her she was having second thoughts about the coming out part and if they could keep it under wraps longer. My friend agreed. I asked her why and she said "well, we are both 43, so it wasn't like I went in with blinders on, but oddly enough, I am still somewhat hurt." My friend said she would not go to any public events and pretend to be a "friend" or not know her. We'll see. My friend is an out lesbian.

by anonymousreply 2106/08/2010

I'm wishing someone would just kill me.

by anonymousreply 2206/08/2010

"perused her"

oh, dear.

by anonymousreply 2306/08/2010

A few years ago I was a Popular Local Celebrity (TV)and under orders not to be seen with my BF out in public. It sucked. He was a real champ about it and did his best to conform.

He dumped me.

by anonymousreply 2406/08/2010

Thank you [24} for you candor . . . Much appreciated.

by anonymousreply 2506/08/2010

So who is the celebrity you're dating, OP?

by anonymousreply 2606/08/2010

Sharon Stone?

by anonymousreply 2706/08/2010

I always peruse before I pursue.

by anonymousreply 2806/08/2010

Another vote for Debbie R.

Everyone knows she does the lez lez, right?

by anonymousreply 2906/08/2010

Please tell us you're dating Betty White.

by anonymousreply 3006/08/2010

Lauren Hutton?

She's the only "much older" than 49 celeb I can think of that could be construed as both gropable and dykesque.

by anonymousreply 3106/08/2010

Jesus, how much older than 49 can one get?

by anonymousreply 3206/08/2010

never happened

[quote]Jessica Tandy is not dead. She wunk at me at the corner of 10th Street and Broadway.



by anonymousreply 3406/08/2010

I'd just like to say how laughable it is that once again Josh Kilmer-Purcell starts a thread hawking his book, he gets vilified, then obviously defends himself under various guises, then - yet again- the webmaster closes the thread immediately after he/she/it/josh gets a huffy defensive last word.

Obviously someone at Mediopolis knew Josh when he was a whore.

I know, wrong thread, but the cunt that runs this site closed that thread.

by anonymousreply 3506/08/2010

Okay...the most likely suspects as OP's girlfriend: Debbie Reynolds, Holland Taylor, Lauren Hutton,...who else?

by anonymousreply 3606/08/2010

Michelle Pfeiffer is 49.

by anonymousreply 3706/08/2010

[quote] A friend confided in me yesterday that she has been dating a politician...

That's a very tough position to be in. I hope the politician comes out soon. It sounds like they really like each other. Her gf wouldn't happen to be a House Democrat from northern Illinois?

by anonymousreply 3806/08/2010

OP, what is 49ish. Is that like 55 but you still can't just say it.

If you aren't going to say who it is just tell us how old she is.

Give us that, and let us speculate.

by anonymousreply 3906/08/2010

Do you love her OP? Do you feel she truly loves you? Do you feel this relationship is worth fighting for?

by anonymousreply 4006/08/2010

Does the much older celebrity lesbian do the crab-walk across the room?

by anonymousreply 4106/08/2010

OP, you're 49 and your gf is MUCH older. Is it Betty White? j/k :)

by anonymousreply 4206/08/2010

We all know this thread was started by a man.

by anonymousreply 4306/08/2010

Is Lauren Hutton gay?

by anonymousreply 4406/08/2010

I read (here?) that she slept with Jodie Foster, r44. So she might be.

by anonymousreply 4506/08/2010

Who is Kim Dickens' girlfriend?

by anonymousreply 4606/09/2010

So she is a 60 SINGLE female celeb, who FREQUENTLY gets photographed in intimate poses with males and the general public thinks she is heterosexual.

by anonymousreply 4706/09/2010

Diane Sawyer

by anonymousreply 4806/09/2010

Diane Keaton. This thread is now closed.

by anonymousreply 4906/09/2010

OP is a gay man. No lesbian I know would describe herself as "49-ish," and if she did, she must be a jackass.

by anonymousreply 5006/09/2010

if you want advice go to, there are a lot of thoughtful responders there

if you want cattiness, stay here

by anonymousreply 5106/09/2010

Haha. 49-ish.

by anonymousreply 5206/09/2010

Punch & delete, baby.

by anonymousreply 5306/09/2010

LOL @ r28. I didn't even notice that typo.

r38, I can't say, but she is a democrat though and is very attractive, I googled her after she told me. From the little bit I read, I could see the woman coming out, slowly, saying she is Bi. She seems to have integrity.

They are very much in love, I've never seen my friend happier. I am worried about her though, the previous relationship wasn't far removed and she was tore up. I guess it's true what they say...The best way to get over one is to get under another one.

by anonymousreply 5406/09/2010

Jane Fonda?

by anonymousreply 5506/09/2010

I can't for the life of me recall any photos of an old broad being kissed and groped by men.

by anonymousreply 5606/09/2010

I KNEW Joe Gillis was a Merkin. The BITCH!!!!

by anonymousreply 5706/09/2010

If men are groping a woman much older than your 49ish ass, OP, it's because they're looking for her purse or she's choking on a piece of Swiss steak.

by anonymousreply 5806/09/2010

OP, how can we help you if we don't know who you're dating?

by anonymousreply 5906/09/2010

How much older than "49ish" is your alleged GF?

by anonymousreply 6006/09/2010

I'll concede that fondle is a more accurate description than grope.

For what it's worth, Meredith Baxter is over 60, but it isn't her. I am sorry I cannot say at this point who it is.

Also, for whomever is bothered by 49-ish, it's the same thing to me as 49.

by anonymousreply 6106/09/2010

Has anyone guessed the woman, OP?

by anonymousreply 6206/09/2010

Aren't you going to give us a few hints, OP?

by anonymousreply 6306/09/2010


by anonymousreply 6406/09/2010

Susan Lucci?

by anonymousreply 6506/09/2010

It's Maya Angelou!!!

by anonymousreply 6606/09/2010

Jacqueline Bisset?

by anonymousreply 6706/09/2010

Susan B. Anthony!

by anonymousreply 6806/09/2010

Lauren Bacall

by anonymousreply 6906/09/2010

Hedy Lamarr?

by anonymousreply 7006/09/2010

She's over 60 but not yet 70. That's it for the hints.

by anonymousreply 7106/09/2010

Shirley Phelps-Roper

by anonymousreply 7206/09/2010

Julie Andrews?

by anonymousreply 7306/09/2010

From your first post, OP, I take it she's not closeted in her personal life.

by anonymousreply 7406/09/2010

Helen Mirren

by anonymousreply 7506/09/2010

Joan Baez

by anonymousreply 7606/09/2010

[quote]Who is Kim Dickens' girlfriend?

Jill Souble.

by anonymousreply 7706/09/2010

Gloria Stuart

by anonymousreply 7806/09/2010

Didn't Jill Sobule deny being gay after her big I'm A Lesbian song became popular?

by anonymousreply 7906/09/2010

Nan Michiganwomyn

by anonymousreply 8006/09/2010

What older woman would let men fondle her and have photographs taken?

by anonymousreply 8106/09/2010


by anonymousreply 8206/09/2010

Phyllis Schlafly, r81

by anonymousreply 8306/09/2010

Studs groping and kissing a 60-70 year old woman in a sexual way? YECH.

BTW, the OP said "Entertainment Industry" and not actress...this could be a singer, model, director or put on your thinking caps my friends.

by anonymousreply 8406/09/2010

Maybe Dolly Parton?

She's long been rumored to be lesbian, and she is certainly fondlable.

by anonymousreply 8506/09/2010

I thought Dolly and Judy were solid, but that sounds like a good guess to me otherwise. OP is Bonnie Mace!

by anonymousreply 8606/09/2010

I'm dating a conehead.

by anonymousreply 8706/09/2010

I'm thinking...lena Horne?

by anonymousreply 8806/09/2010

I'm still going with Deneuve. No matter what OP says.

by anonymousreply 8906/09/2010

[quote]Is Lauren Hutton gay?[/quote]

Yes, but he doesn't kiss men.

by anonymousreply 9006/09/2010

Uh, r88, those studs would be fondling and groping a corpse.

by anonymousreply 9106/09/2010

[quote] I'm thinking...lena Horne?

You do know that she is dead, don't you?

by anonymousreply 9206/09/2010

Janice Dickinson?!?

by anonymousreply 9306/09/2010

You're dating Betty White?

by anonymousreply 9406/09/2010

[quote]I often see her pictured with other actors...

Um, read a little closer R84.

by anonymousreply 9506/09/2010

Can you give us a hint of what she known for op?

by anonymousreply 9606/09/2010

OP, here's the thing: when you met her she was closeted and in the entertainment industry and now that you're dating her she's still closeted and in the entertainment industry.

She hasn't changed, you have. Ask her if she's willing to come out. If she's not, decide if you can stand being with a closeted person.

Once you've made your decision, stop whining.

by anonymousreply 9706/09/2010

OK. My choices are:

Susan Sarandon

Jaqueline Bisset

Candace Bergen

Jane Seymour

Sharon Stone

remote possibility, Diane Sawyer. If we're thinkin' truly randy, add Hele Mirren to the list. That is all. Then again, there's Jackie Collins, as well as Joan. Should we look at live theatre?

OP, you need to dump this chick or get her to agree to some dealine. It is wrong to be this old with your life on hold. That is bullshit.

by anonymousreply 9806/09/2010

Joanne Worley

by anonymousreply 9906/09/2010

Is she married?

by anonymousreply 10006/09/2010

Susan Sarandon - old Sue is dating a young guy

Jaqueline Bisset

Candice Bergen - Candice, not Candace, is married to an older guy, has been for years.

Jane Seymour - I can tell you it's not Jane.

Sharon Stone - she's 52, OP's gf is over 60.

by anonymousreply 10106/09/2010

Dolly Parton.

...or Linda Hunt

by anonymousreply 10206/09/2010

OP, did anyone name your girlfriend yet?

by anonymousreply 10306/09/2010

It is possible to be famous and closeted even to the gay community.

This has been interesting and fun but these posts are so far from my original question, I'd might as well go for now. Thanks anyway.

by anonymousreply 10406/09/2010

If it's Jackie Bisset then you are a lucky lady!

by anonymousreply 10506/09/2010

Deidre Hall?

by anonymousreply 10606/09/2010

What do you want to hear Op? You walked into this situation knowingly.

by anonymousreply 10706/09/2010

OP, are you the same old broad who had a problem with a contractor recently? If so, stop posting if you don't like what people have to say in response.

by anonymousreply 10806/09/2010

Candice Bergen's husband--the "at least" bisexual Louis Malle--has been dead for awhile, r101.

by anonymousreply 10906/09/2010

Candice Bergen has had her share of gay rumors but she has also gotten remarried, R109. She has been married the past ten years to Marshall Rose. Not that that means anything, though.

by anonymousreply 11006/09/2010

OP left after the Dolly guess. Coat of many colors indeed.

by anonymousreply 11106/09/2010

[97] Your advice is the most intelligent yet. Thank you.

by anonymousreply 11206/09/2010

r97 is right. She's just not of the out generation, and it would be a huge media circus if she were to come out. That that would be highly stressful for... Jane Curtin?

by anonymousreply 11306/09/2010

Susie Lee?

by anonymousreply 11406/09/2010

[quote]Didn't Jill Sobule deny being gay after her big I'm A Lesbian song became popular?

Yes, but what's your point?

by anonymousreply 11506/09/2010

It has to be Sylvia Myles.

by anonymousreply 11606/09/2010

Holland Taylor-67...No matter how many people on DL know she is gay, she is not "out" (hiding in plain sight, perhaps, but the straights just think of her as the shrewish mother on "Two and a Half Men").

by anonymousreply 11706/09/2010

r117 is probably right.

by anonymousreply 11806/09/2010

re: r115, well, why would she do that and then enter into a public lesbian relationship which is only not well known because its two participants are only moderately famous?

by anonymousreply 11906/09/2010

[quote] BTW, the OP said "Entertainment Industry" and not actress...this could be a singer, model, director or put on your thinking caps my friends.

The OP ALSO said:

[quote] I often see her pictured with other actors

so I would say she's an actress.

by anonymousreply 12006/09/2010

Stick to my question, and you may get to know more. This is not a guessing game, It is about someone who does not wish to come out and other hollywood males and my delimma. Sorry.

by anonymousreply 12106/09/2010

If she is not going to come out than your only choice is to stay with her and accept the closet or break up with her and move on. I hope you don't hope that she will come out FOR you. That WILL break you up.

by anonymousreply 12206/09/2010

If she's out in her personal life OP and isn't hiding you from her family and friends, then be with her if you love her.

How important is it for you to be known as the partner of a famous person? Do you want to be in paparazzi photos? Do you want to be known? If you don't care for those things, then view this as her acting...part of the job.

by anonymousreply 12306/09/2010

You know, forget what I said. What do I know what it's like to date a closeted celebrity...

by anonymousreply 12406/09/2010

OP at R121: She is never going to come out until you learn to spell.

by anonymousreply 12506/09/2010

I think from OPs message that her girlfriend is in the glass closet. She states that the studs think they are going to change her - everyone in the industry knows she's gay.

I don't see why you would even care. Do you have to have your face on People Magazine as her latest.

And you should know if you are on here that Datalounge is about many about gossip not helping someone with their psychological issues.

If you mention celebrity we want to know who the fuck it is not help you deal.

by anonymousreply 12606/09/2010

Point taken [R126]. Perhaps I am barking up the wrong tree with DL, and for that I am truly sorry.

Thank you to those people who gave me honest feedback. It was very much appreciated.

by anonymousreply 12706/09/2010

OP, can you tell us how did you meet?

by anonymousreply 12806/09/2010

Barbara Walters

by anonymousreply 12906/09/2010

OP, as long as you know she loves you, everything will be OK. She has to keep up the pretense. She's an actress, her behavior is an act.

by anonymousreply 13006/09/2010

Actually, OP, you have the advantage. I really cannot imagine, if what you say is true, that she would want you to go. She is at an age where having a meaningful relationship is very important. I bet the idea of you leaving her is completely beyond her.YOu need to be the strong resolute person here and tell her how you feel, with an "I don't know how much longer I can live like this" caveat.

by anonymousreply 13106/10/2010

[quote]re: [R115], well, why would she do that and then enter into a public lesbian relationship which is only not well known because its two participants are only moderately famous?

I have no idea, R119. You'd have to ask her about that.

by anonymousreply 13206/10/2010

Angie Dickinson?

by anonymousreply 13306/10/2010


by anonymousreply 13406/10/2010


by anonymousreply 13506/10/2010

Dolly or Cher, both 64

Maybe Cher has somewhat flown under the radar all these years......

by anonymousreply 13606/10/2010

again, I ask what old lady is often pictured being FONDLED by male actors?

by anonymousreply 13706/10/2010

I never said old lady, that is your prejudice. And it isn't often, it is at choice moments. How I wish I could provide you with the pictures to prove my point, but to do that is to betray her and I will not.

by anonymousreply 13806/10/2010

You knew the deal going into the relationship, so if you can't handle it, move it along, toots.

by anonymousreply 13906/10/2010

To [R130] and [131] . . . Thank you for your wonderfully kind words and support.

by anonymousreply 14006/10/2010


by anonymousreply 14106/10/2010

What never happened?

by anonymousreply 14206/10/2010

OP does she reassure you of her love? Don't be afraid to ask for reassurance, it doesn't make you seem needy. Let her know how you feel about the situation, don't make any demands, but let her know how hard it is for you. You are in a tough fix.

No woman wants to see her lover pawed over, or the subject of rude and crude remarks or gossip.

You are responding in a perfectly understandable way to a situation that is beyond comprehension for most of us.

Don't bottle your feelings, because they WILL emerge in subtly destructive ways. But realize that her career is extremely important to her on a deeply emotional level. Entertainers have a need for validation from strangers, they have tremendous egos, and deep insecurities.

YOU know the real woman, the world doesn't. They are responding to an image and have agendas of their own, as know.

by anonymousreply 14306/10/2010

[quote]And, second, you have to give up the notion that a 'stud' feels like 'changing' a woman over the age of 49.

If Raquel Welch were lesbian, lots of studs would try to change her. She's 60 years old.

by anonymousreply 14406/10/2010

Is Tina Turner 70 yet?

by anonymousreply 14506/10/2010

Only a lesbian would post a thread with the subject in all CAPS!

by anonymousreply 14606/10/2010

Is Jessica Lange sixty yet?

by anonymousreply 14706/10/2010

[R143] I cannot thank you enough for your kind words and deep insight. You're perhaps the only person on the whole thread that understands my situation. Thank you.

by anonymousreply 14806/11/2010

This thread is useless without pictures!

by anonymousreply 14906/11/2010

WW for r10!

This thread is lulz.

by anonymousreply 15006/11/2010

If I were this closeted celebrity, I would break it off because OP spends WAY too much time on anonymous message boards!

HMMM....Donna Mills....Mary Kay Place...Morgan Fairchild...?

Wayne Newton

by anonymousreply 15506/11/2010

Kate Jackson?

by anonymousreply 15606/11/2010

I'm curious: how did you meet? And what is it *really* like to be w/a celebrity? Fun...or a pain in the ass most of the time?

by anonymousreply 15706/11/2010

I used to date a female celeb. Five years later, heartbroken. She says she still loves me and sometimes wears our ring. But I will never be seen with her and now she is actively bearding. I don't regret but looking back, I could have been with happier with someone else whom I can have a future with. I left her immediately after she got married.

Happiness comes from self esteem and shared circle and security. Almost impossible with a closet case in the long run.

by anonymousreply 15806/11/2010

The only woman guessed on this thread that I can understand man wanting to grope is Donna Mills but she's not really closeted, is she?

by anonymousreply 15906/11/2010

R158, does her husband know the deal? Did she want you to continue to see her after she got married?

by anonymousreply 16006/11/2010

Celebs always put their career/fame/fear whatever ahead of lovers. Invariably so. If they find they can get away with the hiding (having the cake and eating it too), they will never come out. You will be locked into the dark closet for life.

by anonymousreply 16106/11/2010

R158 do we sometimes discuss her? What's it like to read about your former girlfriend? Or to read all the "happy couple" article in the papers?

by anonymousreply 16206/11/2010


We're still talking about this?

by anonymousreply 16306/11/2010

Still? r163, this is the kind of stuff DL was made for!

by anonymousreply 16406/11/2010

[quote]Does the much older celebrity lesbian do the crab-walk across the room?


by anonymousreply 16506/11/2010

r158, Mariska Hargitay, right?

by anonymousreply 16606/11/2010

I think the original post contained a typo. I think OP meant to say 40ish, not 49ish.

I think we're looking for someone in her mid-50s.

Which widens the field considerably.

by anonymousreply 16706/11/2010

R167, OP said somewhere in the thread that the celebrity is over 60.

by anonymousreply 16806/11/2010

uh-oh. looks like someone's closet case is trolling...

by anonymousreply 16906/11/2010


by anonymousreply 17006/21/2010

It's a pity, I would have liked to hear more from R158.

by anonymousreply 17106/22/2010, how old is Danielle Egnew...?

R158, if it's of any consolation to you it's hard to imagine that she's happy living a lie. Though, some of these people are so calculative and hungry for success and fame I wonder if they do get satisfaction from superficial things. I have never seen a photo of an unhappy Hargitay, for example.

by anonymousreply 17306/22/2010

OP, come back and let us know how it's going.

by anonymousreply 17406/25/2010

OP are you in the Industry as well?

by anonymousreply 17506/25/2010

OP must be dating Cicely Tyson

by anonymousreply 17606/28/2010

OP is dating Mike Tyson, the over 60 and lady thing were just red herrings.

by anonymousreply 17706/28/2010

OP, are you an agent?

by anonymousreply 17807/01/2010


by anonymousreply 17901/24/2012

Donna Mills is a lesbian only on DL.

by anonymousreply 18001/24/2012

So the closeted lesbian celebrity OP is dating is single and is 60 to 70 years old. What are the best guesses?

I doubt OP will return to give us more hints.

by anonymousreply 18101/24/2012

oh get over it. it's part of the job. would you be mad if you dated a plumber and he occasionally smelled like shit? no. you'd over it and used to it.

by anonymousreply 18201/24/2012

OP has made it perfectly clear that she doesn't want to identify the woman.

by anonymousreply 18301/24/2012

How to difficult can it be to guess who it is? How many over 60, single actresses are photographed with younger actors?

by anonymousreply 18401/24/2012

Joanna Lumley???

by anonymousreply 18501/24/2012

Joan Collins, Muff Diver.

by anonymousreply 18601/24/2012

Who cares about the celebrity OP is dating. It's obviously someone incredibly dull and uninteresting.

by anonymousreply 18701/24/2012

Joanna Cassidy?

by anonymousreply 18801/24/2012

The best guesses so far in this thread are Joanna Cassidy, Donna Mills and Jackie Bisset.

Any other guesses?

by anonymousreply 18901/24/2012

It's Betty White

by anonymousreply 19001/26/2012

Oh for fucks sake you idiots. This was posted almost 2 years ago. Whoever OP was dating then doesn't matter because it's OLD news.

by anonymousreply 19101/26/2012

it's Susan Sarandon.

by anonymousreply 19201/26/2012

But we never did find out who the closeted lesbian is, R191. So even if it's old news it's still fun to guess.

I haven't read through the thread but did the OP mention if her gf had any gay rumors in the past?

by anonymousreply 19301/26/2012

must be Liza

by anonymousreply 19401/26/2012

We've already done this only it was guy/guy. Goes over much better IMHO.

by anonymousreply 19501/26/2012

Debbie Reynolds

by anonymousreply 19601/26/2012

Helen Mirren?

by anonymousreply 19701/26/2012

My money is on Linda Hunt.

That Oscar winning muff diver can eat pussy standing up.

by anonymousreply 19801/26/2012

R189 is right. The other guesses don't fit. We are forgetting that the celebrity is single and is sometimes photographed with younger actors.

by anonymousreply 19901/26/2012

A female friend (well, more acquaintance) claimed to have had a lesbian affair with Sarandon.

by anonymousreply 20001/26/2012

Holland Taylor

by anonymousreply 20101/26/2012

[quote]Holland Taylor

Holland Taylor is photographed with young actors groping her?

by anonymousreply 20201/28/2012

r189 is right

by anonymousreply 20301/28/2012

[quote]Does anyone have any insight that might help me?

It's called "ACTING".

And red carpet publicity is nothing compared to naked love scenes on film.

Comes with the territory. Deal with it or move on.

by anonymousreply 20401/28/2012

I agree, R203. Now if only the OP would come back and give us more clues.

by anonymousreply 20501/28/2012

It's Jaqueline Bisset

by anonymousreply 20601/30/2012

First guess: Patricia Clarkson (even though she is only ~52)

Second guess: Catherine Deneuve

Third guess: Isabella Rossellini

Fourth guess: Isabelle Adjani

by anonymousreply 20701/30/2012

Patricia Clarkson and Isabelle Adjani aren't yet 60 years old, R207. Op said she is from 60 to 70 years old. And although Catherine Deneuve and Isabella Rossellini are good guesses I don't think they have ever been photographed with younger actors groping them.

Joanna Cassidy, Donna Mills and Jacqueline Bisset are the best guesses so far. And from those three I think Bisset is the only one that has been photographed with younger actors. She has always been involved with younger men.

by anonymousreply 20801/30/2012

A couple of you have mentioned Linda Hunt.

She is openly lesbian and has been married to her wife for several years.

by anonymousreply 20901/30/2012

Well, they have Holland getting into bed with Ashton Kucher on "Two and a Half Men", r202!

by anonymousreply 21001/30/2012

I think the OP was talking about young actors with her gf on the red carpet and other events, R210.

by anonymousreply 21101/30/2012

Why has nobody suggested Bernadette Peters? She's in the entertainment industry and gets pictured with actors. And her bod's still pretty smoking for a 60 something.

by anonymousreply 21201/30/2012

OP, if you trust your gf you should have nothing to worry about. A guy--no matter how young and handsome he may be--is not going to 'change' your lesbian girlfriend. Is she bisexual? Regardless, if you cannot cope with her choice to remain closeted perhaps you should decide if you want to stay in the relationship, languishing in the shadows.

by anonymousreply 21301/30/2012

R212 might be right. But isn't Bernadette Peters in a glass closet. Would it be much of a surprise if it was her?

by anonymousreply 21401/31/2012

I think Peters is still pretty closeted as far as the general public is concerned, R214. I don't know if she fits OP's description of cozying up to guys for photo-ops, though.

by anonymousreply 21501/31/2012

I guess you're right about Peters, R215.

As far as the cozying up to guys for photo-ops, I think the only one that really fits is Jacqueline Bisset, although I never got a gay vibe from her at all.

by anonymousreply 21601/31/2012

My first guess was Dana Delany but I don't think she is over 60 yet.

I'm going to agree with R189, too.

by anonymousreply 21702/04/2012

An older queen know who puts a little money into Broadway shows and rubs elbows with that crowd of theatery New Yorkers said BP is straight and Julie Andrews is gay. I am willing to believe his accuracy on BP, as disappointing as it is, if only to have confirmation on Julie Andrews.

by anonymousreply 21802/04/2012

My guess is Anna Deavere Smith (who is 60) because she pings like the dickens and has literally never spoken of her personal life. She also has never married and she is from that last generation of folks who were ones for marriage.

Oh yeah.

Have I seen her photographed with fellows while doing PR? No. I have actually never looked that up or anything.

Anna Deavere Smith has never been linked to a soul.

by anonymousreply 21902/05/2012

Sorry, R218, but your friend is wrong, at least about Peters.

by anonymousreply 22002/05/2012

For Holland Taylor, see the She-Wired interview. It's as close to saying 'Yes, I am' as she's ever likely to come.

There's also a thread on DL.

by anonymousreply 22102/05/2012

Has anyone guessed Diane Keaton? She fits in with the age but I can't really see her being photographed and groped by young actors.

The way OP worded it it sounds like her gf is an older, sexy woman that even young men would want.

by anonymousreply 22202/06/2012

SUSAN SARANDON!Dating a younger man and check out R200

by anonymousreply 22302/07/2012

Someone in the Jacqueline Bisset thread posted that she knows that Bisset had a lesbian affair.

I believe that a lot of guesses on this thread had lesbian affairs but OP's gf is someone that is still sexy as an older woman. I'm going to guess Jacqueline Bisset.

by anonymousreply 22402/07/2012

[quote]SUSAN SARANDON!Dating a younger man and check out [R200]

How long has she been dating the younger man? This thread was created 1.5 years ago.

by anonymousreply 22502/07/2012

I thought Peters was pretty widely known to be a lesbian, at least within Broadway circles. Wide Broadway circles. And yes, Anna Deveare Smith is a lesbian, but she's hardly known for posing with men groping her.

by anonymousreply 22602/07/2012

OP this isn't the best place to be asking this question. The majority of the people here are on Klonopin and never leave their mom's basement.

by anonymousreply 22702/07/2012

Yeah, stop dating her if it bothers you.

by anonymousreply 22802/07/2012

Isabella Rosselini was having an affair with a woman trainer I knew a few years back.

by anonymousreply 22902/07/2012

Um, this thread is 1.5 years old, honies, get a grip.

by anonymousreply 23002/07/2012

r220, I needed something to make me smile tonight.

Thank you :)

I will believe you over my friend because I want you to be right.

by anonymousreply 23102/07/2012

Kaye Ballard is still worrying about being outed????????

by anonymousreply 23202/07/2012


by anonymousreply 23302/13/2012

I think this is Diane Sawyer she is older but still attractive. OP never said actress.

by anonymousreply 23403/31/2012

I doubt it, R234. The OP said she is photographed with "other" actors, meaning she is probably an actress. But even if she isn't an actress, Diane Sawyer is never photographed with young actors looking all sexy.

by anonymousreply 23504/01/2012

You don't think Mike Nichols looks sexy?

by anonymousreply 23604/01/2012

you're right about the implication of "other actors" r235. And I didn't realize she was married. But, I think she could do better than Mike. She'd definitely be the type I could see getting hit on by much younger men.

by anonymousreply 23704/03/2012

And the lesbian celebrity is....

by anonymousreply 23804/13/2012

For any celeb, or anyone really desirable, you have to just block out everyone else and deal with them as an individual.

Too many people want a piece of them; you need to leave it up to them to eliminate your competition. To the extent they won't, you have to learn to live with it and be positive, i.e., not attack your rivals, or the fact you need to be private.

by anonymousreply 23904/13/2012

[quote]Been there, done that

With who, R239?

And since we are on the topic, who the hell are we talking about in this thread? The only guesses that seem to fit are Donna Mills, Joanna Cassidy and Jacqueline Bisset.

by anonymousreply 24004/13/2012

OP take what 239 said.

by anonymousreply 24104/13/2012

Ok, I know I'm late to the party but somewhere in this thread the OP said that her gf is over 60 and not yet 70. So that would leave out Donna Mills because she was 70 in 2010 when this thread was started.

So Joanna Cassidy and Jacqueline Bisset seem to be the best guesses left.

by anonymousreply 24204/14/2012

r239 takes it.

by anonymousreply 24304/15/2012


by anonymousreply 24404/28/2012

I've always thought Joanna Cassidy was gay. Don't know exactly why.

by anonymousreply 24504/28/2012

So who is the much closeted older actress? Please say it's Catherine Deneuve!

by anonymousreply 24608/29/2012

[quote]So she is a 60 SINGLE female celeb, who FREQUENTLY gets photographed in intimate poses with males and the general public thinks she is heterosexual.


by anonymousreply 24708/29/2012

Did OP ever come back with more clues?

by anonymousreply 24809/26/2012

[R218] That's hysterical- Patty S. They seem to both be very nice people, at least BP is, on the couple occasions I met them.

by anonymousreply 24909/26/2012

She looks tired in that photo, R247, and bored. He's got a great ass,though.

by anonymousreply 25009/26/2012

If that's the case R247, OP is a lucky lady!

by anonymousreply 25109/27/2012

can we bump this

by anonymousreply 25203/27/2013

Wait, Debbie Reynolds and Megan Mullally are back together?!? I guess we know why Carrie was getting shock treatments recently.

by anonymousreply 25303/27/2013

My guess: Jane Fonda. She's been pretty open about her preference for women since the 70s amongst lovers/husbands but only recently did she hint at it publicly.

by anonymousreply 25403/27/2013

[quote]My guess: Jane Fonda. She's been pretty open about her preference for women since the 70s amongst lovers/husbands but only recently did she hint at it publicly.

Uh, no. She said she had threesomes because Vadim wanted her to. And since she was more or less acting like a sheep in her relationships with men, she did it to please him.

by anonymousreply 25503/27/2013

Fonda was sleeping with women for years and years, with and without men involved. What she says publicly is one thing. That's why it's called the closet.

Recently she inched out and admitted she preferred her "female friends" to any man she'd been married to. A lot of people think she's preferred girls since she had lesbian affairs with some of Old Hollywood: Stanwyck and others.

by anonymousreply 25603/27/2013

That is BS about Jane Fonda. Know lots of insiders and never heard anything like that. Did hear she was a cunt, though.

by anonymousreply 25703/27/2013

Maybe my insiders should meet yours. The woman is notorious for being a sexual dynamo, and seducer of women. There's actually plenty of material on this on the web.

by anonymousreply 25803/27/2013

What the hell happened to the OP?

by anonymousreply 25903/27/2013

Hot, r258

Jane is better off with women anyway, her father and husband were rabid woman-haters. She deserves some peace (and great fucks). That can't be achieved with men.

by anonymousreply 26003/29/2013

Jane had 3 husbands - were they all women haters? I thought they were just narcissists like her father.

I never thought Jane was gay or bi. I know she has an affair with Jimmy Smits during the Old Gringo time. Don't know of any women.

by anonymousreply 26103/29/2013


by anonymousreply 26204/11/2013

My guess, Susan Sullivan.

by anonymousreply 26304/11/2013

From a bio on Jane Fonda:

One friend recalls that Jane often confided that she’d enjoyed sleeping with girls since she was at boarding school. Even when sex wasn’t involved, she always forged intense female friendships.

At primary school, her best friend was a tomboy called Sue Sally Jones, who played professional polo — then not open to women — for 20 years, disguised as a man. Jane has carried a photo of Sue Sally with her throughout her life.

Another intimate friend was the petite and intense Canadian actress Madeleine Sherwood. When the two women starred in a Broadway play — with Madeleine playing Jane’s mother — they were often seen holding hands backstage.

Once, during a performance, Madeleine kissed her full on the mouth.

The director objected, saying: ‘A mother doesn’t kiss a daughter on the mouth.’

Madeleine recalls: ‘It was a gentle, loving kiss. We didn’t slobber.’

Rumours about Jane’s sexuality surfaced again in 1970, during an anti-war road trip across the States with her French friend, Elisabeth Vailland. They shared a curious bond: like Jane, Elisabeth had also procured women for her late husband and indulged in threesomes.

When Elisabeth asked if she enjoyed being with other women, Jane said she thought she did — ‘because I liked having an up-close view of the varied ways women express passion’.

by anonymousreply 26404/11/2013

She's 49 and they still grope her? She must be very attractive.

by anonymousreply 26504/11/2013

Is there something like a support group for spouses who date celebrities or those who are their 'dirty little secret' (like mistresses and gay lovers)?

by anonymousreply 26604/11/2013

It can't be Jane Fonda. OP said early on in the thread that her gf is over 60 but not yet 70. Jane Fonda is 75.

The best guesses in this thread are Jackie Bisset and Catherine Deneuve. They are the only over 60 actresses I can see being photographed with guys wanting to grope them.

by anonymousreply 26704/11/2013

More like Fonda is a man hater, r261. She attempted to make her own sexual excesses out to be "love" for her husband, basically blaming him for all the group sex. Pitiful example of someone who wants us to believe her overactive interest in her own sex was some sort of burden.

Recently, however, she admitted that she'd rather take getaways with women, and that her deepest relationships had been with women rather than any men she'd been involved with.

There were rumors *everywhere* about her sexuality in the 70s and 80s, and many near or outright confessions about her love of pussy back then. She used to routinely make lists of powerful Hollywood Bisexuals, and the details are readily available on the web.

by anonymousreply 26804/11/2013

Loving women doesn't = hating men, hater at r268. Sit your ass down.

by anonymousreply 26904/18/2013

3 years later...

by anonymousreply 27004/18/2013

The op is 49 and dating a much older closet case? She said the closet case is being groped by men...even though she is much older then 49? I must have read that wrong.

by anonymousreply 27105/12/2013

You think Jane Fonda's husbands would marry a woman who did not like to have sex with them? I find this a little hard to believe. I guess you feel like if you spread the lesbian rumors, people would think less of her? You're at the wrong board.

by anonymousreply 27205/12/2013


by anonymousreply 27312/31/2013

OP here. I'm shocked this thread is still around.
