We’re great supporters of LGBT rights, here at Smashing Tops! We usually don’t listen to the rumor mill too much, but today we thought of going with the flow and see what the great, big Internet is saying about who’s gay in Hollywood. We support coming out of the closet, those out and proud celebrities bring nothing but joy into our hearts, but we also feel that it’s important to respect people’s privacy and not force anyone to come out. Look how long it took Anderson Cooper to come out, or Ellen Page (and how wonderful she came out!). This article about celebrities who might be gay is just harmless fun and it should not be taken seriously.
10. Richard Simmons
Surprise, surprise, right? Richard Simmons, the fitness guru and possibly the funniest personal trainer in the world has not come out. To say that he’s as gay as they come is an understatement, but Richard has not officially come out and we believe that he never will. It’ll be one of those things that will never be confirmed. Not that we need any official confirmation here.
9. Seann William Scott
Seann has been dodging gay rumors since the beginning of his career, but the line that pretty much confirmed that he’s gay was delivered by him in 2011: I really have no desire to date a super hot actress because they’re all nuts anyway. Anyway, I’m a pretty private guy so if I was going out with Britney Spears you wouldn’t find out about it from me. Do you think that makes him gay? Maybe not, but who knows?
8. John Travolta
God Himself could come down from Heavens and tell the world that John Travolta is not gay and the world would be all You’re funny, God! Go home! What more can we say about John Travolta’s sexual orientation that hasn’t been said a thousand times before and confirmed by various masseurs and airplane pilots?
7. Chance Crawford
Chance Crawford is one of those Hollywood actors who have been chased around by gay rumors for years. The rumors seemed to flourish when in 2008 he was seen getting a bit too familiar with another man in a steam room. Another time the New York Observer did something very uncool: they outed him. He hasn’t confirmed anything, but we’re getting some strong vibes from him and we hope he comes out soon.
6. Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith
This Hollywood power couple is thought to be gay and that they’re each other’s beards. It’s also been said that they are in an open relationship, which Jada has somewhat confirmed and infirmed on various occasions. If they’re gay and they’re each other’s beards is just swell for us. Have them confirm it and then we’ll congratulate them for coming out.
5. Ryan Seacrest
Out of all these celebrities who might be gay, Ryan is thought to be the most obvious. While we’re not too keen on that term, we kind of have to agree. Julianne Hough, the actress he had been dating for a while is thought to be one of the most obvious beards of all time in Hollywood. What do you think?
4. Henry Cavill
Up until Man of Steel, Henry Cavill was an actor who wasn’t afraid to be seen online and in real life with his gay male friends, which were plenty and to whom he was very close to. He didn’t come out but he was in a very grey area. When Man of Steel came out, the lad went all Hollywood on our behinds. Yes, he did date the beautiful Gina Carano for quite a while, but many believe she was just a beard. What do you think about Henry? Gay or nay?
3. Alexander Skarsgard
There are rumors out there that say Alexander Skarsgard is bisexual. He has not confirmed anything and to be honest we don’t believe he will any time soon. He was linked to Ellen Page, who came out a few months ago, so that gave some people some food for thought. But to be fair, when the two were hanging out, they didn’t say they were dating or anything, but that they were only good friends.
2. Tom Cruise
You can put Tom Cruise in the same pot as John Travolta, minus the masseurs, airplane pilots and their juicy man on man lovin’ stories. There is no love lost between Scientology and the LGBT community and that’s why, we believe, Tom is still in that tightly shut closet that will never be opened. Too bad, Tom!
1. Kevin Spacey
Kevin Spacey managed to keep his personal life personal. Maybe a bit too personal, which has prompted people to wonder if there’s a (gay) reason behind it. An American magazine ran an article in which they said that Kevin Spacey was gay and then there were the pictures. The pictures of Mr. Spacey at a party with a young man draped all over his body. We should mention that the young man’s pants were pulled down and he had his (very perky) bum up in the air, inches away from Mr. Spacey’s face. We think that spells gay better than the letters G A Y.
