Blind Item #9

This closeted foreign born A- list mostly television actor from an acting family is doing press for a new movie in which he stars. While out of the country doing the press tour from city to city he has been accompanied by a man he says is one of his PR people, but is actually a long time secret boyfriend.

He should just come out. I think straight female viewers want to f*ck attractive gay guys just as much as straight male viewers want to f*ck attractive lesbians.

@brayson

I agree. i think though its about international sales more than anything. the western world, as backwards and homophobic as it seems sometimes, is nothing compared to abroad - particularly in asia, china, russia, etc - big money makers. so much depends with the box office and marketability on abroad revenue

hope it changes tho

Sd Auntie said...

He is ! I thought a female was pegging him in a stairwell at last years Oscars!

@sd

omg...I forgot about that and nicole kidman....good point...maybe he is bi and had always felt gay

Isn’t he the guy that is supposedly a creep irl? Like he keeps his house freezing cold and spotlessly clean, and stares at the women he brings home while why’re sleeping?

Jeff said...

It only makes sense that he would want someone skilled in both public relations and private ones. He needs to get his money's worth. More BANG for the buck. A full service employee.

Tricia13 said...

I think the clean part is just the Swedish way lol. Have Swede friends and like that (notbyhebrestbifbthe weird stuff lol).

Cary Lem said...

I can't drool over a guy once i know he's gay. Happened when i saw a hallmark movie recently, lead actor was so hot, drooled and googled him, found out he's gay and now when i see him on rom coms i cant see him the same way, no interest in drooling anymore, no attraction. Psychological i guess, not sure but it happened, i have zero interest now lol

Brayson87 said...

@Cary, why do you think that is? Do you now associate him with some of the prevalent stereotypes? I'm just curious, not judging at all. I have a few female friends that love gay porn lol.

Kimberley said...

I'm the same @Cary Lem. I used to fancy the Chinese psychologist character in SVU (can't even remember his name now). Googled him, he's gay. Crush gone!

MichiganMama59 said...

Yeah, so.

rosie riveter said...

Lol Auntie

Lissette Monzon said...

B.D. Wong....I had a crush on him too... </3

orangesoda said...

Yeah finding out a guy you think is attractive is gay is the biggest lady-boner killer. First of, you already know that he isn't attracted to anything about you as a female and second, gay porn, unlike lesbo porn, is not attractive to most females. Two dudes ramming each other up the arse just doesn't have the appeal of two good looking ladies licking nipples. I'm straight but I would take lesbo porn over gay porn any day even though I'm not attracted to women at all.

LuLu said...

@ Brayson. i think its just an 'oh sh!t im barking up the wrong tree', move on thing. have you not seen the seinfeld episode...

sam said...

@Brayson, there is not a single straight woman I know that would want to hook up with a gay man. We just want to be besties with them.

hunter said...

Nope. I am a single straight female, have LOTS of really attractive gay dude friends and the thought of hooking up with one of them kinda grosses me out.

One time someone said, "you could turn him for the night!" and my first thought was "ew."

Why would I want to be with someone who doesn't find me attractive?

hunter said...

^^^ This final thought, of course, being one Weinstein has never had.

Brayson87 said...

I just meant still finding them physically attractive, not trying to give them your phone number. And people should be honest with themselves, even if the actor was straight that doesn't mean there's any chance he'd want to bang you. ;)

@hunter, Banging your friends is a sucker move anyway, although everyone tries it 😅

i never got this whole thing but i guess its hard to take Jamie Foxx seriously playing George Washington because hes not black so perhaps people view gay and straight the same .. personally it depends on the way someone acts .. there are certainly some pretty flamboyant straight guys out there.. im a gay guy on the butcher side.. someone mentioned on here international audiences and thats actually a point i hadnt thought about.. look at the box office these days.. most movies cant make it if they dont do well internationally .. if your playing characters that arent the star or arent supposed to be attractive i dont think it matters (ala Ian Mckellen) but would tom cruise command the same numbers overseas if he comes out? probably not sad to say .. so id probably if i were in their shoes avoid discussing it but wouldnt go over the top to hide it either... and as i got older id probably own it when it is no longer relevant to the roles id get.. always thought Jodie Foster plays it how i would

Cheyenne Jackson - first time I saw him was on Broadway in Xanadu and he was so hot. I knew he was gay, but it was easy to forget he was gay...yeah, I could see him as a lead in a Hallmark movie and buy into it

Jonathan Bennett - when he was younger I kind of wondered, but now he is very out. I always got him as the gay BFF character before I saw him come out for the first time (that I knew of) on DWTS. Still saw him cast as the boyfriend and I wasn't taken aback, but I would never have him as the romantic lead in my dreams. Now that I have seen him on CBB, I hope I never see him cast as the lead, because I don't know of anyone who would "get lost" in the film for a minute.

@cary lem - is this the actor you are speaking of? if not, which actor are you talking about? I am wondering if others would feel the same way if it was someone we never realized was gay? Also, I wonder if others feel the same way about Lindsay's bff? I like the guy, love him in these movies - just not as a lead.

Aquagirl said...

I guess I’m in the minority. I find Alex hot as hell and even though I know he’s gay, I’m able to suspend belief when watching him.

All X's said...

@Flashy Vic - don't you mean "in the pipeline"...?

Just another day on this stage we call ... life said...

I honestly think Hollyweird needs to wake up to the realization that girls will still swoon over a gay guy. It's not a big freeking deal.

Cary Lem said...

@Brayson. I can't pinpoint it lol some people i mentioned it to said maybe because they weren't attainable anymore, could be, i dont feel grossed out, maybe more like the fantasy is gone lol

@Pink_palace Luke mcfarlane lol dammit

Hiram Abiff said...

Women who really love men sort of lose interest when they imagine a hot guy rimming another hot guy. Some women like that, but those women are usually Bisexual, or Fruitflies. It's not the fact the guy's Gay, it's the very raw sex some Gay men have that's the turnoff - and the specter of STD's.

JL said...

Too much info about any actor’s or actress’s personal life ruins the character illusion for me. I only see Julia Roberts now, not whoever she is supposed to be playing. I watch Meryl act. That’s why I appreciate actors who aren’t thirsty fame whores like a lot of the Brits.

Pink_Palace said...

@cary lem i knew Luke played a gay character on brothers and sisters, but did not know he was gay. I don’t always buy him in roles anyway (acting choice not because i thought he was gay), but his voice is sexy as heck!! Thanks for sharing.
