Marlon Brando’s sexuality is no big secret among Old Hollywood. But is there proof he was playing for our team? A photo that’s apparently Brando fellating childhood friend and longtime lover Wally Cox (ba-da-bum) has been rumored about — but now it’s been found, reportedly. “Part of Brando’s private collection the photo was burried for years during his marriage and fathering of many children,” reports gossip site L.A. Rag Mag. “Even though he allegedly continued to play on the side with Cary Grant, Rock Hudson, Stewart Granger, Montgomery Clift, John Gielgud and James Dean.” (Brando and Cox’s ashes were spread together in Death Valley.)
And let’s not forget it was Brando who’s this quote is attributed: “Homosexuality is so much in fashion it no longer makes news. Like a large number of men, I, too, have had homosexual experiences and I am not ashamed. I have never paid much attention to what people think about me.”

Why is any of this important now? BECAUSE IT’S A HOLLYWOOD CELEBRITY WITH A SEX TAPE! Or at least, a sex photo. And as we learn more secrets of A-listers from the days of Rock Hudson, even salacious material like a picture of Brando giving head is, at the very least, evidence that gays have always played a part in American culture, whether James Dobson and his ilk choose to acknowledge it.
