GAYS IN HOLLYWOOD

Who Will Be The Next Celebrity To Come Out Of The Closet?

As the cover story in last week’s Entertainment Weekly reinforced, it’s a different world out there for gay celebrities: We’ve seen Matt Bomer, Zachary Quinto and Jim Parsons come out to little or no controversy. Heck, even American Idol and The Voice alum Frenchie Davis just came out in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

Of course that doesn’t mean that Tinseltown’s closet doors are being flung open en masse. Depending on a star’s place in the Hollywood firmament, coming out could be a risky gambit—or at least they think it would be.

Over the past few months, several stars—well, headline-makers at least—have been identified as gay in various media outlets.  (Gossip Girl‘s Chace Crawford and J-Lo boy toy  Casper Smart were just called out this past weekend.)

Now, none of these people have come forward to acknowledge they’re indeed queer—and to paraphrase Tallulah Bankhead’s comment about Gary Cooper, they never sucked our cock—so we’re not gonna confirm or deny anything.

But we are going to lay out the rumors and speculate the odds of them having a “Yep, I’m Gay” moment in the near future.
