T.R. Knight has been giving a bunch of interviews over the past few weeks in advance of the first legal gay wedding ceremony here in California. At one point one of the questions was about his new boyfriend Mark Cornelson who if my math is correct is about 16 years younger than TR. Let's see. 35 - 19 = 16. Yep, which means that T.R. was driving when Mark was born. Cool.
I am okay with age differences, but think about this. You are in the hospital and you are 16 or 17 years old and you see an infant that has just been born, and say, "I'll see you in about 18 years." Kind of sick when you think about it like that.
Anyway, T.R. said yesterday that he was surprised his boyfriend was interested in him, especially given the age difference. Now, under normal circumstances this would probably be true, but T.R. is an actor, on a hit show, makes a decent living to say the least, and so perhaps Mark felt just a little more warm and fuzzy about the whole thing compared to if T.R., had been say a ditch digger.
Gay relationships or straight relationships, money and celebrity talk. I think what T.R. should be surprised about is if the relationship continues after the show and the huge paychecks stop. That to me would be a surprise. Again, as always I could be wrong and they could live a long and happy life together. You just know that Mark is counting down the days until marriage is legal so he can get himself half. Maybe. It could just be love.
