Christopher Reeve Dated a Gay Porn Star? Doubtful

The gay porn star who told the tale, Cal Culver (aka Casey Donovan), is dead. So too is his subject, Christopher Reeve. And the interviewer Culver supposedly told is unidentified. So let’s call bullshit on the claim that Culver had a two-month affair with the Superman actor. Now rumors about Brandon Routh bedding a fella? Those I’ll buy!

    I don’t believe or disbelieve, but in the late 70’s sex was just sex. I a lot of guys I know who are str8 played around with anything that would say yes.

    About as credible as the rest of the trash in Hollwood Babylon…

    Brandon Routh is one fine looking man.

    No matter how they photographed him in his Superman drag, his big basket was unmistakable.

    Few remember that Reeve played gay in the Broadway production of “Fifth of July” … courageously AFTER having appeared in the first “Superman” film, as well as in the later film “Deathtrap” in which [below], as in the play he kissed another man full-on. But that does not a closet queen make.

    I’d imagine it’s not beyond the realm of possibility that he dabbled for a while. Lots of young men do before they realize that they’re closer to the Kinsey 0 end of the scale than Kinsey 6. And a biographer noted that, like many such beautiful straight men in Hollywood [and everywhere] he benefited from the kindness of gay strangers.

    In any case, he was a great man lost too soon.

    Cal Culver was lover to Thomas Tryon who was later replaced by a young hot model from Texas named Jett. Tryon was pals with Rock Hudson. Jett introduced Hudson to his pal Mark Christian.
    Cal Culver was into fist fucking and I doubt that he ever got his hand near the ass of Superman.
    The 70’s and the early 80’s had a lot of unreported star fucks that didn’t get published as there was no internet.

    Christopher Reeve was gay, yes (trust me on this one), but I’m not sure he would have stooped to dating a porn star.

  • Jon (not that one)

    Please stop the fantasy over dead people.

    I don’t believe it either, though I’m tempted to wish it. Nevertheless, if Reeve were ever so inclined, he could have done worse than Donovan in his prime.

    @MSZP:

    A lot of stars during that time and even now fuck with porn stars.

    And they pay them money for it.

  • GEW

    Hmmmmm… mustn’t be that gay, Donovan in his prime does nothing for me.

  • Gregg

    In the 70’s Christopher liked sex. Whether it was with a woman or a man, he was down with having sex. Later on, after he met Dana, he was exclusively with women.

  • Jon

    I’m not sure why this is “doubtful”. There have been rumors about Reeve for YEARS. Plus it was the 70’s a much different time from the uptight 2000’s.

  • REVEMUPMAN

    The 70s was a blur, what went on then stays in that time. And yes, ALOT went on back then.
