Mexican Dreamboat Luis Gerardo Mendez Reportedly Comes Out As Gay, Talks Infidelity

924420One of Mexico’s most popular young actors has reportedly come out as gay in an interview with Moi magazine this week.

After years of light speculation among fans, 32-year-old Nosotros los Nobles star Luis Gerardo Mendez says infidelity issues with his former partner inspired him to talk about his often-sheltered personal life and monogamy among gay men.

“If the agreement is that you can sleep with anybody, there are no problems, but if it’s not, it’s not cool,” he said. “I was not faithful to many, I struggled a lot with it, but I have redeemed myself.”

Latin Times notes that while Mendez didn’t officially come out, he used the masculine term “muchos” (men) rather than “muchas” (women) when referring to his former cheating partner.

Mendez has had a successful career spanning more than a decade and once locked lips with actor Luis Ernesto Franco in 2010’s No se si cortarme las venas o dejarmelas largas (check out the steamy pic below). He posed for the cover of Moi this month as “Mexico’s it boy” — check out some behind-the-scenes footage from the shoot below:

    No he didn’t really come out as being gay. But from watching that video, you can see that a mile away.

    “Reportedly”

  • ChgoReason

    He looks like Screech.

  • SportGuy

    I commend him for coming out, but calling him a dreamboat is like calling a Prius a sports car.

    As sexy as having a root canal with no anesthesia

    Spanish defaults to the masculine in the plural. Latino and Latina — in the plural — become Latinos, much to the outrage of feminists everywhere. So his use of “muchos” could also reflect that masculine bias when using Spanish-language plurals. I’ll believe it when he actually say “I’m gay” or “bisexual” or refers to a prior (single) partner in the singular masculine. Until then, I’m from Missouri.

    I guess it’s a matter of taste, because I find him really cute. I doubt any of you are better looking

    Bravo!!!

    He’s cute….why’d he have to find fidelity before he found me?

    @Chris: Wrong. Spanish goes masculine by default if there’s someone who is masculine in the whole thing. If the ones he cheated were all women the plural is muchas, and that’s not the word he used.
    I’m spanish, and nobody who is heterosexual will use the word muchos to refer to his lovers.

    And i find him cute too (everybody has different tastes, for the life of me that i can’t see Channing Tatums appeal), and he was great in the mexican series XY
