We guess once your girl-on-girl make out sessions span two continents and get broadcast to millions of people, it’s sort of hard to ignore the fact you’re kind of into the ladies. So hats off to Snooki for keeping it real about her sexuality! “I would consider myself bi,” the Jersey Shore star revealed to The Huffington Post’s Gay Voices in a joint interview with JWoww. “I’ve done stuff with girls before. But I would never be with a girl because I like… penis. But I’ve experimented.” We’re sure Jionni is at least 50% reassured by that declaration. If only Vinny was completely androgynous, then maybe Jionni could finally sleep at night!
As for the other Jersey Shore cast members, the ladies have their super-sensitive gaydar trained on one gentleman in particular: The Situation. “[H]is posture and the way he holds his cigarettes… everything,” JWoww muses when asked if their smoosh-crazy roommate could be gay, explaining, “Listen, I know I keep talking about my best friend Joey, but his husband was closeted for 27 years of his life. And I knew him before he came out. So because of that I know… the signs.” Says Snooki of the Sitch, “He told me one time, ‘[All the talk is] making me wonder.’” Luckily the two ladies also discuss their support of gay marriage, which makes us want a Jersey Shore gay wedding so bad. They can have the ceremony in the t-shirt shop and the reception at Karma! Deena can make bridesmaid bouquets out of all her piles of cast-off weave!
Remember Zach Braff? Barely, right? Okay, now imagine that you heard that the former Scrubs star had recently come out. Suddenly you’re slightly more interested, right? Sadly the Zach Braff gay rumors, the ones that made you think about of the actor for the first time since 2004, are unfortunately false. TMZ reports that hackers managed to post a coming out letter to Braff’s website that declared in part, “I am excited and proud to announce that I am an open member of the homosexual community.” Said Braff’s rep, “He was hacked … that site has been down since 2006.” Quiet, Zach’s rep! You are squandering this amazing opportunity!
All kidding aside, Braff didn’t totally drop off the radar once he slipped of his stethoscope. The actor-director is currently working on the play “All New People” in New York City, and recently appeared in the film The High Cost of Living. At least this wasn’t another awful rumor about Zach Braff’s death like last time, though even when that happened, just for a split secondÃ¢â‚¬Â¦we all thought seriously about a Garden State sequel, right?
We’ve teased James Franco to the breaking point! The Rise of the Planet of the Apes actor has had enough snarking, and he wanted the world to know: Franco knew the Oscars were going to bomb before the show even hit the air, especially the sight of James Franco dressed as Marilyn Monroe. “I was so pissed about that I was deliberately going to fall onstage and hopefully my dress would fall off or something — they couldn’t blame that on me; I was in high heels,” Franco explains in his new Playboy interview, later adding, “I just didn’t want to fight anymore, even when they said, ‘You’ll come out as Marilyn Monroe. It’ll be funny.’ Me in drag is not funny.” Just admitting it is the most important step, James; it’s going to be okay. It’s all going to be okay.
There is something else that’s been stuck in the actor’s craw: a little rumor in 2008 that claimed James Franco is a gay rapist. “Then Gawker picked that up and did this ‘Gay Rapist’ story that was so f—ing offensive because I have friends who have been raped,” Franco rages, referring to a New York Post blind item that claims an A-list actor sexually assaulted, then paid off, his boyfriend. “My lawyer called them and said that it was completely untrue and to take it down. They said, ‘Well, we’re just reporting what the New York Post told us. If James wants to make a comment on our blog, we’re happy to report it.’ It was a choice. Either let this thing build and become bigger and bigger, or just let it go and let them be the petty scumbags that they are.” At least this explains why Franco always has that sleepy half-smirk on his face: he must be using every ounce of his strength not do constantly go ballistic on us gossip mongers.
When it comes to celebrities, people often see what they want to see. When it comes to seeing Jake Gyllenhaal canoodling with another dude though, these people unfortunately need to get their vision checked. While visiting with Jimmy Kimmel to promote his new film Source Code, Jake Gyllenhaal complained that everyone thought his best friend was his boyfriend after Brokeback Mountain hit theaters. According to Gyllenhaal, when traveling to London as a BAFTA nominee for the film, his agent and manager saw his pal adjusting Jake’s tie…and though his buddy was going in for a little face time. “They walked in and were like, ‘Ohhh, we’re so sorry, we’ll just let you guys be!’” Jake laughed. When Gyllenhaal actually won the award, he recalled: “He’s sitting next to me, and when I won he yelled, ‘Yay, baby!’ and everyone around is was like, ‘Did he just call him baby?’” We don’t know how everyone could be so confused when clearly Jake has just been quietly waiting to date us. WE SAID CLEARLY.
Despite public romances with lovely ladies likeTaylor Swift, Jenny Lewisand Reese Witherspoon, Gyllenhaal has always been followed by lingering gay rumors, or as we like to call it, “wishful thinking.” Believe me, we understand. Have you seen Neil Patrick Harris? Some part of us will never give up hope. Never.
If you are operating heavy machinery or prone to fainting spells you might want to take a seat, as Olympic skater and diva Johnny Weir has come out of the closet. Finally. In his new memoir Welcome to My World, Weir admits that “In a sexual way, IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m gay,” which sounds like a great way to be it. ApparentlyÃ‚Â Weir knew he was gay since childhood, reminiscing how “Watching Richard Gere in Pretty Woman at the tender age of six was when I had first realized there was something different about me…Kissing seemed like a weird thing to do, but I knew if I was going to do it, it would be with Richard Gere.” That movie made us feel the exact same way!
While he had been feeling pressure from gay advocate groups for a while to publicly announce his orientation, Weir decided to come out now as a way to support the next generation of LGBTQ youth. “With people killing themselves and being scared into the closet, I hope that even just one person can gain strength from my story,” Weir explained. Huge fabulous hats off to Johnny for the announcement, and be sure to check back in tomorrow when we reveal or not rain is wet (we’ll give you a hint: it is).
There have been Kevin Spacey gay rumors as long as there’s been Kevin Spacey. And when the Golden Globe nominee for Casino Jack recently met with an interviewer from the Daily Beast, said reporter was not interested in how great it must feel to be nominated. Instead, interviewer Kevin Sessumes asked the American Beauty actor why he refused to come out the closet, despite the fact that everyone and their mama “knows” that he’s gay. “People have different reasons for the way they live their lives. You cannot put everyone’s reasons in the same box. It’s just a line I’ve never crossed and never will,” replied Spacey. “I don’t live a lie. You have to understand that people who choose not to discuss their personal lives are not living a lie. That is a presumption that people jump to.” Yup, just the kind of statement you’d hear from someone with absolutely nothing to hide about his sexuality! So, how great was it to be nominated?
Concluded Spacey, “Look, at the end of the day people have to respect people’s differences. I am different than some people would like me to be.” For example, we would like him to be an actor who never appeared in K-PAX, but we just have to make peace with the fact that he was.Ã‚Â It’s something we struggle with every day.
