I've also heard the rumours about his sexuality but myself I couldn't say either way. But if indeed his is gay he'd have plenty of reason to play it straight. Some are saying it would make no difference but with these celebs there is always a fear factor. Hence why there are so many closet cases in the entertainment industry.
It must be a horrible thing for anyone who feels like they can't come out. We talk about "this day and age" but the fact is the whole wide world isn't a "super happy, tolerant" place. On the one hand we have the people who would be peeved if someone turned out to be gay, then on the other we have people who have endless discussions and make up cryptic clues worthy of Sherlock Holmes about if someone is gay and when they will be outed.
Sorry, kinda highjacked the thread there
