A few idiots have suggested that Ellen page came out to help her career. Yes, because coming out as gay always helps people get leading roles doesn't it there is a reason lots of people don't come out and pretend to be in heterosexual relationships or just don't says anything about sexuality and it hurting your career is a part of that. Another nonsensical line is "I didn't have to come out as straight
" we'll Ofcourse you didn't because you don't face oppression like LGBT people do!

Ellen Page's chances of 'leading woman' roles are going to be very limited now. If anything, it's harder for a lesbian to be taken seriously in a hetero role than it is for a gay man

Surely the point of being an actor is being able to pretend you're someone you're not? I'm guessing a lot of people who say this (in the industry, not you) are saying this because either 1) they think the person is shit anyway or 2) they're homophobic.

As hard but definitely not harder. There are no out male or female leading actors. It's not such a big deal in television but it definitely is on film. For example, if vin diesel is gay then I can imagine some
men who look up to him in his action roles would find it hard accepting it because of the stereotype that gay men must be really camp and can't be tough. There are obviously a lot of people who wouldn't care but the studios wanna make as much money as possible so I don't see them risking casting someone who could turn people away. That is why a lot of actors do stay in the closet. We'll one reason why, some of them must do it because they fear family, friend reactions aswell etc

Vin Diesel has a partner who he has been with since 2008 and has two kids with her. Not that people on here would respect that though, which is the sad double standard in this thread. Unless you have legitimate reasons to doubt someone's heterosexuality, how can you not see how disrespectful it is to doubt them based on nothing? It baffles me,

It's been rumoured that one member of A1 was gay. Any surprises (besides Kavana)coming up in The Big Reunion 2?

She hasn't had that many lead roles recently anyway unless you count Beyond:Two Souls. Even in The East she only got third billing.

That's still not enough for some people! Someone elsewhere on the web speculated that it was an arrangement enabling him to preserve his macho image and her, being from Mexico, to stay in the US.

Also John Travolta is married with kids. Do you think he is straight?

Let me guess, they will trot out their favourite line "Elton John was married". As if that changes the fact that the vast majority of people who are married to women' are straight. I guess the appalling individuals who say all gay me are pedophiles based on several cases aren't absolutely disgusting then. Granted that is horrible and this isn't anything wrong, but it is the same principal. With anything you can't use a few examples as your reason.

The hypocrisy is just too much. But obviously it is peoples own problem if they aren't willing to believe someone is straight despite no evidence otherwise. I actually know someone who used to be respectful and would never take internet rumours seriously and make her doubt hetero relationships, but sadly that changed. We aren't friends anymore, as I mentioned, she actually got quite nasty in her insistence.

One good example was Harry Styles. At first she talked about how wrong it was for Caroline flack to sleep with him but then she questioned whether it was real. It's not like Caroline got death threats and abuse and people still go on about It. Why would she risk that? Probably read the ludicrous Larry fan fiction as I said, unless there is good reason to doubt, why would your mind go there unless you had an issue?

I didn't trot out Elton John but John Travolta,

Can you quote the person who said that alla married people are people are gay, because I've never read such a thing,

So, what about John Travolta, gay or not?

Quit with your anti bisexual agenda. Pathetic how some gay people can't accept others sexuality. Again, hypocrisy many of us are bisexual thanks, you may not like it but you can't say people are lying when you have no idea. No wonder some bisexual people refer to themselves as either straight or gay...

Why do people need to superglue a specific label to themselves and never deviate from it?
If people think it's "fun" to speculate on others' sexual preferences then fine - even the media seem to like playing that game nowadays, but why get so angry if people are fluid about their sexuality or don't choose to announce it to the world?
What business is it of anyone else anyway? Wouldn't real equality be when no one gives a hoot what anyone else gets up to in the bedroom, or who they do it with?
And people don't always pretend to like the opposite sex for the sake of their careers, but because they have family, friends, etc., who they may not feel comfortable about telling.
Sorry if I'm spoiling the thread - but if people must speculate, does it have to get so nasty?

I always thought that was Paul but I checked his twitter last week to see what he was doing and he seems to be straight.

Mark could be, nothing was said about a girlfriend. I seem to have in the back of my mind he was married.

If her career was limited purely on her sexuality, wouldn't that be homophobia? She can act and if she can do well in a role, I can't see why it'd stop her. lso not all films need to have a "love" section. In fact it'd be refreshing to see more without the cliched ending!

The two lads in Brokeback were straight (I'm sure) and they seemed to do okay. Maybe she came out because she has a girlfriend? Maybe she came out because she thought it'd be helpful for people to see someone else do it, or maybe, and this is insane, maybe she just wanted to be herself or something.

Exactly. Straight actors play gay all the time, so why can't it work the other way round? Though I have seen some gay people complain about straight actors playing gay. They are ACTORS. So you can believe someone is a murderer but not believe they are gay if they are straight in real life or vice versa Gay people have also got really angry when straight guys said they found kissing a man weird, but it's natural for a straight guy to feel like that. Though Ian Somerhalders comments on the subject were pretty homophobic and then be trotted out the "I have gay friends" excuse

Jake gyllenhaal has only dated women but I am sure I read a quote where he said he wouldn't rule out falling for a man. I am sure people on here who have never met him know better and will say he is a closet homo though

queen latifah has played mostly straight roles even though the public know/suspect she is gay though I don't recall any sex scenes also amber heard came out when she was a rising star.
I know she is bi but she was in a long term relationship with a woman.

Sam Smith?

He uploaded a picture of himself in his house with a dildo in the background - he quickly removed it!

Hahaha really? Well it could be his girlfriend's ... or a friend's ... you never know with those things

About Mark Read, he did Nothingham Pride in 2009. Again, nothing conclusive. It's just that the *rumours* (between asterisks to stress they were never confirmed) about a male escort spending a night with a member of A1 were all over the place!
