Celebrity Gay Rumors: Are These Hollywood Stars Really Gay?

Photos: WENN

For so many years, coming out in Hollywood meant the end of your career. It could mean the plummeting of movie sales and Nielsen ratings. Times have changed and more and more celebrities are coming out of the closet and living their lives in the open. While it is more acceptable, it is not the norm and many still remain in the closet. Because of that, rumors fly around all the time about the sexuality of certain Hollywood stars. This is a list of celebrities that have battled gay rumors for years, but are they really gay?

Oprah Winfrey

Do I really need to explain this one? Oprah has been dating Stedman Graham for over 20 years now, but yet she is still battling gay rumors. Gayle King is Oprah's best friend and rumors have stated that the two are lesbian lovers, even though Oprah has been with a man for over 20 years and Gayle has been married in the past. Does that mean nothing?

Queen Latifah

Queen Latifah always seems to be hanging out with her personal trainer, who happens to be a woman. She doesn't look like she is in that great of shape, so why the close relationship? Pictures have been found of her hugging the trainer on a private boat, but she still denies it. She appeared at a Long Beach Pride Festival this past summer, which got the rumors going big time, but she denied she is gay again. You like women Queen, it's OK...we will still love you!

John Travolta

John Travolta has been married to Kelly Preston since 1991, but has been fighting gay rumors since the late 1980s. Those rumors got some big flames earlier this year when every masseuse seemed to come out with allegations that Travolta hit on them, groped them or tried to sleep with them and then offered them money to not say a word. He still denies the gay rumors, but I think it is time to open that closet door John!

Raven-Symoné

The former Cosby Show and Disney star tried to clarify the rumors she is gay earlier this year when she went to Twitter and said: "My sexual orientation is mine, and the person I'm datings to know. I'm not one for a public display of my life." She was supposedly dating a former America's Next Top Model contestant, but that has since ended and Raven remains in the closet!

Tom Cruise

It seems that if you get involved with the Church of Scientology that means you are trying to cover something up? Tom Cruise has been married three times and has children, but despite that he has fought gay rumors for years. In 2003, a gay Adult Video star claimed him and Tom had an affair, but Cruise won that lawsuit for $10 million. He also sued a publisher who claimed to have a videotape of Cruise having gay sex, but that lawsuit was dropped. He seems to be fighting the rumors pretty hardcore, doesn't he?

Will Smith

Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith have been married for 15 years now, but most of those years have consisted of divorce rumors and rumors of Will being gay. They have two children together, but Will is another one in the Church of Scientology and may be married as a cover? He brought his "bestie" Duane Martin with him on a trip to Monaco, but we all do that right?

Zoe Saldana

This one was new to me, but apparently people think that Zoe Saldana is a lesbian? She has had an off-and-on relationship with Bradley Cooper, but the rumors still fly. She responded to those rumors: "People have sometimes told my grandmother, 'Your granddaughter has a bit of lesbianism in her. It's that my sisters and I spent all our time among men. We were very popular with them. Our way of thinking is very masculine." So, she just thinks like a guy then?

Ryan Seacrest

Photo: WENN

Look at that face: tan, highlights and all done up. Ryan Seacrest has a feminine and been fighting the gay rumors for years. Kathy Griffin always gives him crap for it, but he still denies and happens to be dating hottie Julianne Hough, but is she a cover-up?

Zac Efron

Photo: WENN

Zac Efron is one of those stars that I think people wish and hope he is gay so they have a chance with him! Zac dated Vanessa Hudgens for a few years and he has been rumored to be with both Taylor Swift and Lily Collins, but that stops no one from still hoping he'll come out some day! I don't think it will happen.

Kelly Clarkson

Photo: WENN

Last year, Kelly Clarkson went on The View and said she has never been in love and never really dated, so that helped everyone cement their rumors that she is gay. Why? Well, she met a guy earlier this year and fell in love and just announced her engagement this past weekend. Still think she is gay?

Matt Damon

Photo: WENN

Matt Damon made a little film called Good Will Hunting with his friend Ben Affleck. Apparently they were too close of friends and people started to think they were lovers, even though both have gotten married and had kids. I get no gay vibe from Damon, but he never did deny the rumors until a recent Playboy interview: "I never denied those rumors because I was offended and didn't want to offend my friends who were gay—as if being gay were some kind of f----ng disease. It put me in a weird position in that sense. The whole thing was just gross." Gotta love Matt!

Vin Diesel

Photo: WENN

The Fast and The Furious star has been thought to be gay for years, yet he has never denied it. Is he or isn't he? In an interview regarding the gay rumors, he said: "I'm not gonna put it out there on a magazine cover like some other actors. I come from the Harrison Ford, Marlon Brando, Robert De Niro, Al Pacino code of silence. I'm not gonna do that." Come out already Vin!

Dolly Parton

Photo: WENN

This one shocked even me. Dolly Parton is gay? She has denied it and compared herself to Oprah because the rumors are coming from a friendship she has had since childhood. Rumors stated Dolly had a sexual relationship with her friend, much like Gayle and Oprah. Dolly has been married to Carl Dean for 46 years and Dolly said: “I’m not gay. If I was gay, I would have come out of the closet just a-flying." Leave Dolly alone people!

Michelle Rodriguez

Photo: WENN

Maybe they cast all the gay people for The Fast and The Furious? Michelle Rodriguez also starred in the movie and starred on the TV show Lost, but along the years she has always battled rumors of being gay. To answer the question on being gay, she said: "I'm not a lesbian. Yeah! Mitchie likes sausage." Well, alright then!

      No one “chooses” their sexuality. Unfortunately, it’s because of prejudice people like yourself and religion, that many gays have to remain closeted. Too much hate out there

  • samo

    vin diesel….uhh, he does know Marlon Brando is an admitted bisexual?

    its things like this that, though you don’t want to believe certain rumors about hollywood, it makes you wonder just how many of these celebrities, men and women, really are using the casting couch as means to put food on the table. And considering how small that “A Listers” pool is– that’s disgusting cause that means majority of everybody in it has slept with each other at some point…ewww..

    i don’t remember Queen or Raven denying that they’re gay, they just said their private life is no one’s business. which it isn’t. i don’t care what they’re doing in the privacy of their on homes, unless they’re making bombs and such!

    • http://twitter.com/ABallerDotCom N.Santos

      Raven is gay and they have proof that she is or was dating one of the models from Americas Next Top Model. Just think when is the last time you have seen her out with a man?

      • TheBigKing1

        Damn, we already KNOW about her and Queen. Thats no secret…they just dont want to come out. Thats all it is

      • Run

        Raven isn’t even likable. She just strikes me as someone who would be a real (b)ytch in person. She comes across as an arrogant, self-absorbed, man-hating (b)ytch!

        Oh yeah…she says all of the right things in her interviews, but her body language and eyes (the looks she sometimes gives her interviewers) reveal a person who thinks she is better than everyone. I have never liked her very much.

        • Joey L Hedgepeth

          How can you say you don’t like some one you don’t know, or for that matter, have never met? I’m confused.

          • dano

            Well they know them (her) by seeing her on tv. And the shows shes on. Duh! !!! I cant stand her and ive never met her. She acts like she is better than anyone else.

        • Darryl McLain

          Sorry, Run, I can’t agree with you. Maybe you see something that many of us Raven fans don’t. It doesn’t matter – I’m her fan regardless, so we can agree to disagree here.

    • TheBigKing1

      If you didnt care, you wouldnt be on this site and commenting and reading the article…CLOWN!

    • Run

      Sorry, but QL denied being gay many times until her personal trainer friend moved in with her.

    How y’all gonna put Will Smith on blast like that, but not the guy who you’re assuming he’s in a gay relationship with? I didn’t see him in the line-up.

      Not that I for one second believe Will Smith is gay!! That’s just ridiculous!

            I live in Miami, I go to gay clubs, I know a lot of celebrities who are very open in the club scene about their sexuality. That’s all I’m gonna say

          • R S

            He was the first celebrity ever to admit he was HIV+, then later admitting to being gay, even though he had completely established his career around being a “macho man.”

  • TexanPatriot2

    They are missing the BIGGEST celebrity of them all — but he’s not based in “Hollywood”, even though Hollywood types are among his friends. He jets around the world, is married like many homosexuals, is powerful, has powerful friends in the media who will NEVER report on his secret. If you know what Man’s Country is..then you know who it is (if you’re a member, you may have even seen him there).

    Wtf,why is this even an issue at all? I dont believe most of these entertainers are gay anyway,and Rock Hudson was a lifetime ago stupid! This is a different day and time! And why are so many of the accused black? There aren’t even that many black celebrity’s,yet were the majority on this list! Really? I’m just saying!!! Gay or not,with the fame & money i’m sure they dont give 2 shits what anyone thinks! Later!!!

    • TheBigKing1

      Be quiet and sit you f*gg*t a** down!!!

      • Darryl McLain

        That was unnecessary. Grow up and get a clue. Everyone else’s opinion matters just like yours does – valid or otherwise.

  • eemm

    And if they are gay, so what, and why do they have to announce it to the world? It’s nobody’s business!

  • Henry Wershaw

    John Wayne and Wally Cox were a secret couple.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1438551270 Jessica Lucinda Williams

      They weren’t too secret huh?

    • Cotton

      No they weren’t

    • Jim Rasmussen

      Now that’s funny.

  • Jane

    Why is this anyone’s business? If someone wants to reveal their sexual preference, fine; if not, leave them alone!

    Ever notice there are no openly gay Scientologists? That seems a bit odd. There are gay Catholics, Jews, Buddhits, etc… yet no Scientologists.

    • To

      No Mormons or Evangelists either..

      • agleone87

        There actually are a few openly gay Evangelists/Protestants… it’s just that when they’re out, they lose their place in the community. Jennifer Knapp, Ray Boltz… quite sad.

    • Janie

      What’s the big deal ? Love who you want to without having to be ashame of it.

    Well if there Gay, I am sure they are very, very happy!

    Leviticus 18:22 thou shalt not lie with mankind as with womankind:it is a abomination.18:24 defile not ye yourselves in any of these things:for in all these nations are defiled which I cast out before you:18:25 and the land is defiled:therefore I do visit the iniquity thereof upon it and the land itself vomiteth out her inhabitants.

    • shay

      Times have changed people are so quick to open their mouths and try to recite verses from the bible and don’t know what it really means most of the time. by abomination back then ment uncleano please do some more research

      • missy

        The Bible, is the word. It predict then and now. You can not take away from it. Just cause times have changed, the word is the beginning and the end. Time also changed in the Bible, but the word stayed the same. Oldest book in history, Gay people WILL go to HELL, if they dont Repent. FACT. THE WORD IS THE WORD, AND IN THE BEGINNING WAS THE WORD, AND GOD WAS PLEASED WOTH THE WORD.

        • TheBigKing1

          I bet you they wont. God made them, just like you and me. That’s who they are. What should they do, live a lie? Come on! Get outta here with that.

          So are down syndrome kids going to hell to because they were special

        • PatsyRamsey

          Christianity used to be a cult, it’s only so popular and powerful because the Roman empire thrust it into the spot light, Constantine to be exact. Then the powers of the old western world ran with it and made it a regulation, just add they did with the calendar, Columbus discovering America, sacraments, etc.

      • Jim Rasmussen

        I did some more research. The same word in the Hebrew is used over 100 other times in the Old Testament. It doesn’t show a single use of that word where it merely means “unclean”. It is used in contexts where it means “loathsome”, “detestable” and, yes, “abomination”. One of those uses refers to the false god Moloch whose worship involved child sacrifice. I’d call that a little more than merely being “unclean”.

    • Shunk W

      Do you mean the same Leviticus that bans shellfish and pork?

    Come to think of it, Travolta, Kirstie Alley, and Will Smith do ‘beep’ on the gay richter scale (Cruise not so much) .. so maybe the Scientology is a cover for some of Hollywood’s biggest mo’s (not that there’s anything wrong with that).

    How was that Michelle RosrigieZ still denies this. Kristanna Loken is her ex girlfriend. Vin should come out as the best role model ever. I pray Tom Cruise is straight. He would be a terrible role model. Oh and yes Zac Efron is just wishful thinking. Very wishful….

  • Just the truth, ma’am

    There’s no RUMOR — he came out years ago — about 10, and SAID he was bi. If that isn’t enough for you, I dated a man about 7 years ago whose father was doorman ad the Four Seasons in Boston and his sister had been Concierge there. She told me herself that Travolta’s behavior became so outrageous that the management had to go to him and tell him that if he didn’t stop “messing” with the guys who worked in the gym, he would be permanently barred from the hotel. Now, the Four Seasons is the only 5-star hotel in New England (hello! 5th-grade geography: New York is a “mid-Atlantic” state, it is NOT “New England) — so it’s where the movie stars stay when shooting films. Travolta was a HUGE star..and frankly, there might be a lot of guys working in gyms who would be happy to have Travolta cop a feel (or more) or take a little cash for a little of their “attention” — so the fact that the management had to threaten to BAR him speaks volumes about just how bad he had to have been. And then, last year or so, he was charged with molesting guys (as in “bothering” them) who worked in a hotel gym…and that was a “aha!” moment for me. I’d heard it years ago from my boyfriend’s sister…

  • the facts

    Matt Damon? Yeah, right. So — if you’re friends with a guy you’ve known since you were 13 — that mean’s your lovers? Matt Damon is so NOT gay it isn’t funny. and he’s also one of the smartest guys out there (his mom is one of the country’s most respected experts in early childhood education). He’s so normal, never seeks the trashy celeb spotlight — and you never see him unless he has to be promoting a film he’s in. Great guy Love him to death. Devoted husband and father of 4 little girls.

  • LisaA

    I didn’t look at even one of the photos. Who cares if they are gay or not, other than their partners? Does it affect their jobs? No. Does it affect my live? No. To speculate about it is to make it something scandalous and somehow salacious. It isn’t any big deal.

  • Tonya J

    Hmmm. Slow news day I see.

  • Guest

    “. . . every masseuse seemed to come out with allegations that Travolta hit on them, groped them or tried to sleep with them . . . ” would seem to indicate that he is straight. A masseuse is a FEMALE massage therapist.

    This article was published in December 2012 so it is old and some of these celebrities have since confirmed their preferences.

    All this article does is prepetuate stereotypes. Who gives two guvkd if they’re gay? And half of these quotes and info are false. Good job”reporting”.

  • Darryl McLain

    I read through this list out of curiosity. Why does anybody’s sexual orientation matters? Is this going to change the skill level or credentials these actors/celebs have earned? Or is it to merely have something to talk about? All I know is – guy or gal – none of them are sleeping with me, so the subject matter really makes me no never-mind. Their abilities as artists are what I concentrate on. I will like/dislike them regardless. If they’re worth fantasizing about, then so be it.

  • barbaraebj

    Dolly Parton, with all the affairs she’s had, people think she is gay? My goodness. The lady has had an affair with every one of her leading men and a few others to boot. This is not a lady who can resist the challenge when in the presence of an unconquered man! Seriously?
