That headline doesn't sound quite right. I'm not sure rumors can be gay or straight. Notice I'm spelling it Rumor, and not Rumer, because obviously, Rumer is a person and a Rumor is a thought. Rumer is probably gay or straight. I mean she could be bi I guess. Oh, or asexual. Anyway, Hugh Jackman gave an interview to Parade Magazine and he confused the hell out of me when he was asked about the rumors that he is gay.
"I’d be happy to go and deny it, because I’m not [gay]. But, by denying it, I’m saying there is something shameful about it, and there isn’t anything shameful."
How is it saying that being gay is shameful if you deny you are gay. If I tell someone I'm not gay, how does that answer in any possible way say that you think it is shameful to be gay. It is a yes or no answer.
It is no different than asking are you the color blue? If you say no, is there something shameful about not being the color blue?
I can't believe he didn't try and clarify his remarks, because they are very confusing.
He also said the only place anyone cares whether he is gay is here in the US.
"The questions about sexuality I find more here in America than anywhere else, because it’s a big hang-up and defines what people think about themselves and others. It’s not a big issue in Australia."
