If Raven-Symoné came out, that would be awesome. The rest I don’t give a fuck about, especially Jaime Foxx.
Charlie Crist? Really?
You are just a wee bit behind on things. Shep Smith has already said he is gay.
None of the Scientology club will come out (they’ll sick their Thetas on them before that happens). Out of this list, Charlie Crist is the most likely just because he’s the only one who’s seem to have been on this deliberate path over the past several years. (Any of his former supporters would have probably not supported him anyway because of switching parties, so being gay shouldn’t make a difference. It will, however, make him look like an opportunist whose been lying the gay community for years, not endearing him to us.)
Tim Cook might come out, but it would be an Anderson Cooper non-story, he’s not a celebrity. (Didn’t we already have the jokes when he first became CEO that all new iPhones would now come with Grindr pre-installed?)
The two most likely would be Queen Latifah could pull it off and not lose her fan base, and Chace who has that Clay Aiken “oh you might as well, everyone knows” thing. Shepard Smith might become FOX’s token gay person. (“See, we like them now, we have one over there!”)
So has Kevin Spacey become passé for these kinds of lists? Or is he more litigious than Cruise? Or did I miss a news flash?
Side note: Kellan Lutz is BUTT UGLYwhy do people think he is hot?
Raven: is youngish, she will need some time
Travolta: GIRL PLEASE!
Shepherd: he is closeted by definition but still is a snapping queen on TV so he isn’t really hiding it
Queen Latifah: it’s time….out with it already
I so love how the media get the reader to speculate about a Celatards sexuality. The truth is the entire industry knows who is and you is not. Like Anderson Cooper said he was out-gay. But, the whole stigma that being gay means you must be some sexual deviant or pervert. Really! I am not longer in the “BIZ” so what I tell the reader; does it really matter who is “out”? I does not at all matter one bit to the general public who is and who is not. We live in a sick society where we worship famous ppl like they’re gods. They are NOT. Just ppl like you and I; except they’re fricking rich and famous and you are not.
Queerty, are you serious? You mentioned the national inquirer! Like the inquirer matters in the world media! It’s hardly a reliable resource. SAD =(
I thought Shepard Smith *was* out. Same with LaTiFah.
Tom Cruise hasn’t been relevant to me since that Vampire movie he did in 1994, prior to which I’d seen everything he’d been in, often on opening day. His co-Scien Travolta is almost as interesting to me today.
If Chace Crawford comes out, then I want him to come over, and then I want him to come, and then I want me to come. A thousand times each. I’ve been in Man Bangs withdrawal since last Monday (or even earlier–ever since they announced GG was over). If there really were such a thing as Intelligent Design, it would be possible for everyone to have a Chace Crawford of their very own.
Kellan Lutz looks like a gay duck. And I like gay ducks. It’d be perfectly nice if he came out. I think he’s the one who’ll come out next (but I thought Justin Timberlake would come out five years ago, so you can’t go by my opinion). I vote for him, though, Kellan Lutz (whom I have never seen in anything, btw, except still photos).
Kevin is already out
@Rockery: Got a source for that, rockery?
He openly hits on guys in the club, is photoed with guys in sexual positions, he does not have to come out, just like Carson Cressley, Andre Leon Talley or Christian Siriano etc these people don’t have to come out. They are just “out” and assumed gay
@Jay: You are so right… Justin really, yup you missed that one. But I am with you can Kellan and Shep. I thought Shep was out… Queer Latifa huh!
@Rockery: who is “he”?
In a pig’s eye Spacey is out. I don’t care how many guys he hits on in clubs or is “photographed” with (and which mainstream publications are carrying these photos, btw?) Kevin Spacey will go to his grave insisting to any journalist who dares to bring up the subject that he is… Not Inclined To Discuss His Private Life. Which is not saying he’s straight of course but is definitely avoiding acknowledging his queerness.
The younger people on this list…maybe, eventually, and probably as quietly and indirectly as possible ala Bomer, Parsons and Cooper.
I don’t see it ever happening with the others, largely for generational reasons and in the case of Foxx, Latifah, Raven-Simone and the Pinkett-Smiths for racial/cultural reasons also. There has been a growing shift in the African-American mindset about gender and sexuality (and Obama’s embrace of marriage equality and LGBT rights has helped) but the Black Church still exerts a powerful negative influence, so fear still rules the day for Black Queer celebs.
@Matthew: The general public totally cares who is and is not gay and if you truly were in “the Biz” you should know that perfectly well.
Why the general public cares is where it gets complicated: the LGBT members of the public, particularly the very young ones, care for what by now should be pretty obvious reasons. And the straight members of the public care either because they have LGBT family and/or friends they love and support, or because they’re haters looking for a dog to kick and a dumping ground for all their anxieties and self-esteem issues.
And then there’s plain old-fashioned curiousity about other people’s lives– and there’s nothing wrong with that. It’s when honest curiousity is met with lies and dissembling and censure that the troubles starts.
I doubt that the commercially-minded actors will come out. Maybe the ones who don’t care about their financial prospects but not the ones who want to become very rich. Hollywood was invented to make money from heterosexuality. The whole Hollywood structure is built around creating an artifice of heterosexuality for male actors.
You failed to mention semi-alcoholic and very hot man Kiefer Sutherland.
I don’t know if people would be surprised about Tom Cruise, Chace Crawford and Travolta.
Basically, it would be an “I told you so” fest if the all came out.
Umm no one I mean no one thinks Queen Spacey is straight and much like the people I mentioned if he ever came out with a “girlfriend” everyone will be laughing. The only thought with him is G-A-Y. Come on now….
What a peurile discussion. Most American queens come across totally self-obsessed and vaccuous. THIS is news? Get a life.
@Michaelmouse1: If you’re going to call people names, could you at least spell them correctly? It’s “puerile.” And “vacuous.”
Who made you you queen of the spelling bee?
I can understand why a young, up-and-comer might stay closeted for a while, because being gay in hollywood still comes with a guaranteed stigma attached to it. People like Neil P Harris and Matt Bomer did things the right way. Cruise, Smith, Crist and the like…I couldn’t give two shits. These men have vehemently denied being gay for years, so they can all stay in the closet where they belong.
stop saying the public doesn’t care about the sexualities of celebs: the Mail Online’s sidebar of shame, gawker, tmz! the interwebz cares for little else BUT other people’s sex lives whatever the flavour. probably because are own sex lives are so shitty…k just me then. (i guess it’s marginally preferable to the fascination with what the duchess of bitchface may have done to her fucking fringe this week or whether her literal and figurative parasite of a fetus has farted at the right stage in it’s overprivileged development.)
i saw video of an off-duty raven looking VERY comfortable at a gay crowd burlesque/drag act thingy. she seems like a good sort. if she’s not actual family she’s def got our backs.
happy xmas y’all from the u.k.
i love you all and i’m not even drunk lol.
@Rockery: I get what you’re saying, but this article is about celebs actually coming out–not who have we always known about. The conversation is very different when someone comes out as opposed to “everybody” just knowing. Even for the celebs we think are dead obvious, you’d be amazed how many folks will insist the “gossip” is not true because the celeb hasn’t said it (thus Spacey’s continuing silence on ths subject).
@PRINCE OF SNARKNESS aka DIVKID: Happy Xmas to you too, PoS aka D!
One thing puzzles me–if you’re so antagonized by the Royal Family or the idea of royalty, what explains your own royal moniker? Just curious.
@Callum: Kiefer Sutherland? Really? Go figure. Maybe that’s why Julia backed out of the Big Hollywood Wedding back in the day.
What happen to the rumor of Scott Caan? Didn’t he get into a fight in a gay bar when someone was getting to friendly with his boy friend?
I think next year someone in the sports world will come out. Tim Tebow, anyone? Or maybe Dick Buttons.
I beg your Ladyship’s pardon, verily ’tis not privilége and majésty such as thine own that doth offendeth me, nay only it’s usurpation by vile pretenders to mine own patrimony which by divine providence wouldst be restoreth to the snarkness line wherein i shalt exercise kingship most kickassly and sexily for the good of ALL MEN… and occasional wenches, if ye mead is strongeth enough.
adieu, sweet lady.
§§§§§§§§§§§§ rest ye and be full merry for sweet baby jesu was borneth this morn. §§§§§§§§§§§§§§
yes, NOW i’m drunk wo0oho0o0o.
just to know that the universe is ordered in such a way that their exists an entity called DICK BUTTONS happies me. so fucking much.
Oh come on … Tim Cook is certainly out. What do you expect, a press release?
Ellen Page seems more like a Matthew Bomer. “glass closet” type, I don’t think she’s truly “in”
The only one’s I see coming out are the women. The men are so deep in the closet and Zenu wouldn’t allow it.
Anyone The Beard (Taylor Swift) dates is assumed gay. Jake, Taylor, that One Direction twink, and whoever else.
Mr, Will Smith can you hurry and come out please! I want to married you.
#31 Prince of Snarkness, This made me laugh. Thank you.
Um, some of those pictured, even if lgbtq whatever, are not people you want to piz off. Tom’s got a good lawyer, and Queen will beat your ass..
So “comic” and Serial Assaulter/Resident Cray-Cray of late, Katt Williams, is your “Magic 8 Ball” regarding Jamie Foxx? It MUST be 100% true, then! That loon acts like it doesn’t even know what IT is anymore, let alone anyone else… :(
@LadyL: Thank you!
@PRINCE OF SNARKNESS aka DIVKID: Oh, okay. I thought it was something like that. Goodnight, Sweet Prince.
Innkeeper! More wine!
I didn’t even know there were gay rumours surrounding Jamie Fox. He doesn’t seem to give off a vibe.
As for Chace Crawford, I’m not sure how he spells his first name is an indication of homosexuality. And besides, it is his middle name. Anyway, he has said that whenever he’s faced with rumours like these things (whether he’s hooking up at bars or getting involved in gangbangs or cohabitating with Ed Westick), he just laughs. And laughs. And laughs. When someone is so amused by these things and he’s maniacally laughing, it totally means he doesn’t like peen.
As for the rest, I don’t really care. Although it’d be interesting to find out if Bill Cobsy is a homophobe or not when he’s asked about Raven. But at the same time, I don’t really want to know. It’d forever change my views of him.
what p.o’s me about these closeted celebs (including sports figures) is their coyness when confronted with these rumors. Several are main stay ‘suspects’ and one is quoted as saying: If I can’t find a woman, a guy will do, nicely!’ Others have ‘beards’ fronting for them while having a secret male lover! I follow the BI and BG and it is amusing to read about those celebs who for years proclaimed their str8ness, only to come out on some talk show;or retire from the ‘scene’ and let everyone know they are ‘free’ at last and don’t have to hide their sexuality anymore!My wish is for them to saying nothing or tell the inquisitors to f*ck off or my private life is just that, private! They don’t have to defend themselves or lie about it.
I heard from a few sites that Will Smith is not only gay, but that he may have molested his own son…has anyone been able to verify this….it’s on too many sites to ignore!!!
I don’t get the constant rumor mill implying that Tom Cruise is gay or bi. I know all about that lawsuit, I have heard empty rumors, but I demand proof, really any sort of proof beyond his ardent assertion he isn’t gay..and not some porn star trying to get some media face-time either. What is the basis for the rumors in the first place? (wise advice: Use a pseudonym to avoid any possible libel here.)It IS homophobic though, to fear being perceived as gay or bi, Tom.
PLEASE let it be that smokin hot Kellan Lutz.
Justin Timmberlake needs to admit that lance bass was right all those years ago and come out of the closet he in stop pretending to be straight known as closeted but he afraid of how coming out will affect his career cause his solo career took off when he killed the queer boy band look and it’s odd he hate’s lance of all the member of nsync he hates the one who tried to out him yet he keeps dating hot women and now even married to ugly as hell J biel and his marriage is BS anyway he only got married to promote his 20/20 album mila kunis is hott as hell even taylor swift is hott.
Why do people think Tom Cruise is gay. Is that what pathetic salivating fags have to do to satisfy their lust and arrogance about someone that’s ageless and smart that they can’t have? “Hmm well he must be gay, because no one that ageless and good looking is straight.” Grow up.
Why isn’t Christina Aguilera on this list? I’ve seen her limousine pull up to the ABBey in West Hollywood on more than one occasion
…the moment I saw Kellan lutz in the Immortals I thought what a fat poof! So am I wrong?
