Clint Eastwood Didn’t De-Gay J. Edgar. There’s Still Plenty Of Snogging

Based on director Clint Eastwood’s WSJ interview, I know a lot of you are thinking his upcoming biopic J. Edgar isn’t going to be gay enough. But you are wrong! It just isn’t going to be cross-dressy. Except we already knew this; screenwriter Dustin Lance Black said he wasn’t going to let the FBI’s first-ever director appear in lady clothes because he couldn’t find concrete evidence he wore them. But that doesn’t mean the film, set to debut in 2012, is gonna be de-gayed. Leonardo DiCaprio, who plays the main man, will have a “a ton of kissing scenes” with co-star Armie Hammer, the The Social Network star says. “I am not nervous or afraid of it being awkward. The script is great. The scenes are in there for a reason.” Yeah, to scare off straight audiences! [photo via]

    apropos of leo:
    yes he has an oversized turnip for a head. but it’s not every spherical root vegetable you have the urge to deep-throat.

    i know, i know, i lowered the tone here …
    as if that was even possible!

    I wonder if Eastwood will try to get some of the kissing scenes edited out of the final script during its rewrite phase. It’s no secret (in Los Angeles at least) that he’s hardly homo friendly, even towards his own family.

    Where do people get this idea Clint Eastwood is homophobic? Has anyone forgot about a little old movie he made called “Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil”?

    Clint will try to show that a good conservative like Edgar was not undermined in his values by what happened when the lights went out.
