Queerty is better as a member
I really don’t think Josh Hutcherson is gay. He doesn’t strike me as the kind of guy who would have any problem saying he was gay if he was, so by the fact that he hasn’t, I think he is acgenuinely straight. But like Daniel Radcliffe and James Franco, he genuinely doesn’t give a shit what you think of him, so he doesn’t let restrictive notions of masculinity and heterosexuality control him. As for his LGBT-friendliness, doesn’t he have two moms or lesbian aunts or something? And why shouldn’t he be gay-friendly? You don’t have to be gay to not be an asshole.
As for the rest, Sechrest and Crawford are definitely gay. So is Travolta obviously, but no way in hell will he ever come out.
But some that you missed: Taylor Lautner. Colton Haynes. Bradley Cooper. Jeremy Renner. Luke Evans (again).
I really hope that we can evolve to a point where we can love whomever we want without these stupid labels…Until then please don’t let John Revolting be gay…I’m not saying he isn’t I just don’t want him to be…We have enough cray cray creepy queers already.
You know who should also come out? Beards. Those professional female companions who show their acting skills (or lack thereof) by pretending to be oh so in love with the closeted celebrity whenever there’s a camera around and a movie or some other project to promote.
Yet again with the incessant Tom Daley posts and references. In this big scheme of things, his coming out was a minor blip on the radar screen, which Queerty is attempting to equate to the coming of the gay Messiah. Enough already. How about this New Year’s resolution for Queerty? No mention of Tom Daley in any form or fashion for one week. It will be difficult at first, and may ever hurt a little. You may also feel some withdrawal symptoms, but in the end, you will be better for it, and your readers will thank you.
@Caleb in SC: let’s discuss other Tom – the football player who just came out. I think he’s cute too in a daddy-bearish way ;)
Ya know, if the issue ever comes up in conversation, I politely inform people that I’m a private person and prefer not to divulge the details of what happens in my bedroom, and guess what? 100% of them are cool with that.
Just because these people are public figures is no reason to pressure them into revealing themselves to us. If anything, we should be more respectful—especially if they’re gay and struggling with it.
Are any of these people even gay?
@litper: Who? Do tell.
@DShucking: No. They’re all bisexual. Except for Will Smith. He just likes girls – girls & t-girlz.
My BiDar is infallible.
This list is schizophrenic: a mix of wonderful allies of the G/L community (Josh, Ellen, Jake, Chace, Oprah) mixed with strange closet cases ranging from pathetic to trashy.
I rather liked Tom Hardy’s cavalier admission of bisexual history… until he caved to the badgering and retracted.
The sexual admissions by Osa Wallander, a Swedish actress looking to break into the U.S. market, are awesome. My favorite statement, “I’ve been luckiy: I’ve never been turned down by someone I found attractive.”
@BJ McFrisky: For some of us, sexual orientation isn’t limited to “what happens in the bedroom.” I look around the office where I work and there are sexual signals all over the place: wedding pictures, baby pictures, vacation photos, family portraits.
I just don’t understand posts like this. It would be one thing if the list only included celebrities who are speculated to be closeted. Or if the list was only a “wish list” of guys/gals who the author hopes are gay. But this is a weird mixture of the two and it waters everything down and makes the post practically useless.
Also, the author has some of the most obnoxious stereotypes in mind about gays apparently. So taking naked selfies and spelling your name with n’s make you gay? Maybe, just a hunch, it makes you a vapid celebrity, regardless of sexuality.
Oh, and I completely agree about being so sick of hearing about Tom Daley. Really? He needs to be referenced numerous times in a post about people who MIGHT come out in 2014? Not everyone finds him adorable and the more that Queerty pushes him down our throats, the more I’m starting to actually dislike him.
I’m getting tired of Tom Daley being the gold standard by which to rate all coming out stories….the boy lied for starters- he said in his world famous video- that he’s ‘NEVER lied- maybe had been vague’ There’s a number of times- including audio and vis=deo of him saying he was straight! Plus- who actually believes he’s bi??? I believe in bisexuality- I’m not questioning it, but Tom only said it to string girl fans along/to keep his popularity- BF DLBlack has questioned the existence of bisexuals in the past, so do you really think he’d be with one???? Robbie Rodgers, Jason Collins and Orlando Cruz are much better role models and standards for coming out!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
why do they need to?…it’s their life!
I actually find your inclusion of Josh Hutcherson and the reasons stated very offensive and stupid.
@Caleb in SC: Queerty may very well collapse without all the references to and posts about Tom Daley. Queerty’s obsession with this kid is dull, stereotypical, and a little creepy.
@Caleb in SC: No Tom Daley references? Let’s be realistic. How about if they just stop with these obsessive, intrusive and borderline creepy “Who Should Come Out Next” lists? Baby steps.
@GeriHew: But we don’t actually know that any of them are bisexual, do we?
The real celebrities are the everyday folks who live out and proud, and authentic allies who stand up for human rights. They are true role models who have changed the world.
Only Chase and Seann William Scott for me please.
Seann William Scott sort of ‘came out’ in an IASIP episode. It was more of an ‘in joke’ thing- and he looked insanely hot when he took off his shirt. Project Badass badass.
At least Q included women on this list.
@BJ McFrisky: said…
“Ya know, if the issue ever comes up in conversation, I politely inform people that I’m a private person and prefer not to divulge the details of what happens in my bedroom,
A typical comment from a self hating right winger. Is a woman putting a picture of her husband on her desk at work “Divulging the details of what happens in her bedroom”?
Only right wingers, self haters, and bigots, try to claim that the simple act of coming out of the closet is something shameful and X rated.
Jennifer Annisten announcing she is dating a man is not the same thing as her announcing she likes to get peed on or likes orgys.
But thanks again for reminding everybody just how embarrassed you are to be gay BJ.
@Daniel-Reader: That is the ideal.
Those that openly fight the good fight are justly heroes and we do need more heroes.
That doesn’t make everyone who isn’t ready to shout from the rooftops that “I’m here and I’m queer” a bad person – or a self hating right winger.
While I’ve been fortunate to be able to live my life openly since I was 14 in relative safety not everyone can. Yet.
It is long past time for the gay media to stop doing three things:
1) Assuming that being super-comfortable with gayness equals being gay.
2) Assuming that the least hint of bi-curiousness equals being gay.
3) Assuming that a man with any sort of fashion sense has to be gay.
That would eliminate several of the people on this list, which quite frankly is a fantasy wish list lacking anything resembling credibility.
“That doesn’t make everyone who isn’t ready to shout from the rooftops that “I’m here and I’m queer” a bad person – or a self hating right winger.”
That has nothing to do with my comment. BJ likened telling somebody he is gay to telling them every aspect of what goes on while having sex. THAT is a right wing attitude.
Another pointless and stupid “article” from Queerty! If I wanted trash like this I’d go to perez hilton’s page!
Oh give it a rest, your post is no different than the posts that used to say exactly the same thing when anybody dared suggest that Ricky Martin, Clay Aiken, Neil Patrick Harris, Rosie O’Donnell, Lance Bass etc… were gay before they came out.
How about the media stops reinforcing the closet as if being gay was some illegal shameful secret once and for all. When somebody is photographed walking holding hands with their partner, or kissing as Neil Patrick Harris was apparently for years and the press purposely hides the pictures even though they were out in public, that is just reinforcing the attitude that being gay is shameful.
I really don’t see the problem in speculation about something so innocuous as sexual orientation, unless you believe that the label “gay” is worst thing to befall an ostensibly straight person.
The fact that some people want silence on this issue only means we must explore it further and deeper.
Some of the ‘reasons’ provided here explaining why the celebrity is gay seems a bit shallow/lame. Just because a person is well dressed or spells their name a certain way doesn’t mean they’re necessarily gay ?
I find this article rather rude … if people don’t want to come out and are not actively working against the gay community hide their identity, then the media should NOT be throwing stones at them …. SHAME ON YOU!
Even if some of the reasons aren’t solid or should be taken in jest, there’s nothing wrong with speculating on someone’s sexuality. Now I don’t think it’s fair to say someone should come out/speak negatively of them if they don’t come out, but come on, this isn’t a serious article, just some fun speculating.
Ryan Seacrest coming out would be nice but Richard Simmons? The gay community needsShepherd Smith that like a whole in the head.
PS You forgot to mention Fox News’ Shepherd Smith.
@DShucking: We do if we have decided to assume everyone is bisexual until proven otherwise.
Assuming everyone is bi is probably a bit silly. But I don’t think it’s quite as silly as speculating that every other celib in the world is a gay.
another asshole article from Queerty. it’s like highschool gossip.
Horrible article. Between the cheap gossipy vibe, the bisexual erasure, the almost-outing and the reinforcement of ridiculous stereotypes, I almost think it was written by a homophobe in hopes of making a mockery of us.
I am reaching the point where I no longer care if someone I like on screen is gay or not. As long as I am entertained, the entertainer has done their job and is free to go back to his/her PRIVATE life.
It’s only an “Asshole Article” if you think that suggesting somebody may be gay is a horrific insult because you think being gay is a horrible thing.
@Cam: By calling someone a closet case, you’re not simply calling them gay. You’re calling them gay and a liar and a coward.
So, no, it’s not a compliment.
I’m particularly pissed to see an outspoken straight ally like Josh Hutcherson lumped in with the liars.
@GeriHew: So we’re intentionally assuming that they’re bisexual. And for what reason are we doing that?
my classmate’s half-sister makes $75/hour on the internet. She has been fired for 8 months but last month her payment was $14393 just working on the internet for a few hours. linked here….. http://ttt.tf/4tre
my girlfriends mum just got Nissan Quest Minivan by part time working online from home… pop over to this site http://gg.gg/yks3
“I’m particularly pissed to see an outspoken straight ally like Josh Hutcherson lumped in with the liars.”
Because once again, apparently you and some others seem to feel that being asked if you are gay is the worst insult ever and that being gay is horrible.
There’s nothing wrong, shameful or bad about being gay, bi, trans, or queer. Or non-conforming, like B. Smith.
Gay, bi, trans, queer people are not the problem.
Homophobia is the problem.
Heterosexism is the problem.
Heteronormativity is the problem.
The sooner we stop accepting homophobic premises that being gay, bi, trans or queer are shameful and something to be hidden, the better off we ALL will be, including straight people.
On the list above, the one who should come out is Tyler Perry, since he is notorious for pushing moralistic bullcrap in his films. He even ruined Ntozake Shange’s play for colored girls in his film version by adding an unnecessary anti-gay, anti-DL, blame-the-closed-gay-man storyline.
Because we are bisexual?
Because we are beyond fed-up with people who seem to assume everyone is straight or gay?
Another zealous failed attempt with Queerty filling wasted journalism space with nonsense speculative celebrity pulp on a slow news day. Especially when there is so much buzz during awards season i.e. House of Cards known closeted actor Kevin Spacey nominated for Golden Globes or gay director director Lee Daniels of The Butler snubbed by HFPA. Hello??!!
my best friends cousin got an awesome white Cadillac CTS Wagon from only workin part time on a home pc. view it now http://gg.gg/yojw
@GeriHew: Who is we?
Ugh, I think Kevin Spacey coming out is WAAAAYYYYY past it’s sell by date. He has been kind of a tool about the whole thing.
@DShucking: One believes that it was in fact actually you who first introduced the majestic plural into this conversation.
However, we have grown rather fond of it.
@GeriHew: I see. You’re checking out now because you can’t back up the nonsense assertion that you know these guys are bisexual. Thanks.
@DShucking: Sometimes I wish everyone would just stop all this nonsense and come out as bisexual – at least in principle.
I mean, why not? There’s nothing wrong with being bisexual.
Unless of course you aren’t bisexual, but then again that doesn’t fit with your narrative does it?
@Cam: People who think there’s anything wrong with being gay are bigots.
And people who think there’s anything wrong with being bisexual are bigots too.
I think Colton Haynes should be on here as well!
@GeriHew: People who think everyone is bisexual are delusional.
@DShucking: Not necessarily. Certainly not as delusional (or as bloody boring) as people who think everyone’s either straight or gay.
@GeriHew: Okay, you keep up the good fight.
I think Richard Simmons should come out as straight. Now that would be a shocker.
No one has mentioned Channing Tatum. As soon as his popularity exploded, he stopped talking about being bi, immediately got married, and quicker than you can say Suri, was being proclaimed father of the year. Talk about finding a quick beard family. As far as Seacrest, someone in the know, phrased it much better than I ever could. “The guy was so turned on, he was sweating more than Ryan Seacrest watching ‘Brokeback Mountain.'”
Chace Crawford is a super hot guy. We have speculated on rather Chase is gay or straight in our blog as well. I have to say he is a very good actor. Fun to watch.
At the risk of inviting death threats from the trans community: ‘masseuses’ are female; ‘masseurs’ are male. ‘Male masseuse’ is an oxymoron.
It bemuses me when some posters like to equate being Bi to being str8 with a slight dip in the gay ‘pool!’ Come on, what str8 guy would even think of having sex with a guy, much less actually having sex with him? Maybe the str8’s I know are the exception to the rule? Also, I read an interview with a twink clarifying his status as Bi and not gay: He said he has sex with both, but, in truth, he prefers sex with a guy much more satisfying, than sex with a female! So, obviously, his sex with a female is more of a PDA and PR thing (to maintain his status, as str8) and not something that is emotionally and sexually, satisfying (IMO).
Miss Seacrest Gay????? Shocking
This really seems to have stirred up a hornets nest. Not bad for a ‘horrible’, ‘stupid’ ‘asshole’ etc article.
Lol I’ve met Richard Simmons, and it was at a gay bar lol he’s definatley gay
this was on a link at bottom of another story- I wanted to check and see if any had- well, Ellen Page did- one’s better than nothing- 5 weeks to go!
I have to be honest and say this article is obnoxious and narrow minded. Josh Hutcherson is on a list of “Celebrities who should come out” for saying he is open? That’s ridiculous. The guys obviously comfortable enough in who he is to say he’s straight but as James Dean said “Not going to go through life with one arm tied behind his back”. I don’t know much about him but what I just gathered, he seems to skip the stereotypes, is open to love in what ever shape or form depending on how it affects him at the time. A very honest and mature answer. To label him to come out is to demand he labels himself. Not saying he’s not on the spectrum but…who gives two. He don’t seem to be stressing about it so why should we. Also I’m only taking about Him in this comment because I didn’t even bother to read the rest after that.
@EdWoody: I do get that actors most often want to work, to do their craft, and not have that be weighed down or submerged because of their private life. Perhaps it is part of the assumed contract that someone makes, that their personal life will be unquestionably and unapologetically have their lives become fodder for gossip and rumors. While it’s not something that is us humans demonstrating our best or most sensitive behavior or intentions, it’s part and parcel of signing that contractural deal with the devil. Jeremy Renner was, I am sorry to mention, was arrested / ticketed for cruising a known gay public park-allegedly, and that’s sort of fair game to report on. If Ben Afleck or Bill Cosby had done a similar crime, it would be page on news, and no one would consider not reporting that fact. Jodie Foster and Rock Hudson, for a couple of examples, were gay, known to be such, and were not exactly really closeted about it either, and it seems that same sort of previous compassion and looking-the-other-way the press used to allow, is now bakc in vogue. “Tolerance” and “respect” are the liberal agenda towards gays in general, and that seems to inform and and edit what the press will report, and what it won’t. Sean William Scott may be a good guy, and the prototypical aging frat boy that Hollywood still loves, but it’s not a bad thing to say or suggest he might be gay or bi, if everyone is really approaching the idea that being gay is a ‘prideful’ status, then telling that truth is not any sort of insult or slander at all. I get how the real world works, and how a newly-out celeb is not going to be offered the ‘stud,”lady-killer’, or ‘leading man’ role, nor will the out lesbian actress to then likely score the ingenue, ‘sex kitten’, or ‘good, but hot girl-next-door”. I doubt The greats Ellen Page or Wentworth Miller are going to be staring in the role of the new sex-pot femme fatal to the newly-cast James Bond. Time and a reality-check, real-world test of that, remains to be seen and proven of what that would truly mean to the young women and men who are the targeted demographics that the Hollywood film factory creates their products for. Still, I NEED to know the real deal, and it does not have to be something i read about on some remote and private webpage blog, but on the cover of ‘US’ or ‘People” magazine, that should cover the truth, regardless of their sexuality. Equality means and should be acted upon, as any celeb is equally going to have his or business put right out there on the street, regardless. Knowing that some past or current star was gay or bi, HAS served to make us more visible, less scary and weirdly imaged, and that familiarity breeds acceptance. So, if ya got five million bucks and are a b-ranked film star, then i and every other busybody wants to know that actors business. Welcome to Hollywood’ it’s not like this prying-eye mindset started last year, but the way the celebrity machine works. Come out willingly and bravely, or expect to wind up seeing that assumed private moment when you played bongos on some younger guys butt, or kissed a man on your private airplane runway, to be front-page news the next morning.
Someone wrote above, that ‘beards’ should come out too. It’s a great story, and it would be tabloid gold for the gal or guy who would stop giving lgbt celebs a pass, and tell us about how Kristen Stewart is gay, and then what could that mean to the whole, very suspiciously easy and too well engineered ‘Kristen Stewart and Robert Patterson love affair’ that conveniently coincided with their running ‘Twilight’ franchise. I coulda told you she was lesbian when she was like 12 or something, when she played the equally-lady-lovin’ Jodie Foster in “The Panic Room” movie. If some brave and unapologetic writer would just acknowledge the pure gold and fame telling the true story would bring upon that reporter, they’d do it and reap the rewards. Instead, it’s a bunch of lgbt outsiders in the midwest like me, chit-chatting and gossiping, projecting and wondering pretty quietly if Liberace was really gay, like the rumors that just trickled-down to us, and we just now heard were true.
Often, the braver ‘out’-ers in the gossip media tend to very unapologetically out schittie anti-gay politicians who are secretly tap dancing their way into a same-sex interlude. So go ahead, if Aaron Schock is the queen he seems to be, or if Eddie Murphy is still hooking up with cross-dressing prostitutes, go for it, and expose them as the harmful, hypocrites they seem like they must really be. (Allegedly.) I remember sitting thru Murphy’s hateful, anti-gay and vulgar AIDS comedy routines made me feel like carp, and then he winds up getting caught, twice i think, with transgender hookers. Schock was a Republican, and is there any more that needs to suggest he deserves the old boot? I’m from St. Louis, and both Catholic Cardinal Burke and Cardinal Dolan grew up here like the ultra-homophobic rouge weeds they are, and i’d bet good money that at least one of the two has had a dck in them not too long ago. Tell us the juicy and delicious truth about how gay Michele Bachman’s husband really is, when he does that horribly evil, ‘homosexual conversion reparative therapy” BS. A guy like Spacey-allegedly- didn’t do any overt harm or hate towards the lgbts, but being closeted IS, in fact, a really damaging thing, and i’d rather them be outed fairly, other than seeing them get arrested in some gay bathhouse in Bangkok or British park or something. If Tim Tebow is gay, and he’s not likely one, but if he’s acting to hurt the very same guys he’s going to try to pick up later on Manhunt, then just go ahead and be ‘out’ with it. If Ann Coulter was truly born “Andy Coulter’, then spill the beans; we’ll all be better for it. I get a mildly-surpressed vibe from Rick Santorum, that he probably feels so bad about some circle jerk he did in his old frat house in college, that he’s rabidly trying to beat out the homosexuality in the larger culture, that he so angry at, that it makes rational people suspect and wonder. Shakespeare said it best, and probably about Rick, that “Me thinks he doth protest TOO much.” The ‘Roy Cohn”s and “J. Edgar”s need to be outed, if we want to look ourselves in the face and say we didn’t sit idly by and partake in our own oppression through our silence. Spill it, consult your Queerty lawyers, and then run with the story. I don’t exactly come here to read up on some nice and mannered, clean-cut, respectable “Advocate’-type reporting at all.
